If you are looking for flat roofing services in Oakville, Done-Right Roofing & Sheet Metal Ltd. is the right choice for you. When you need a flat roof replacement or installation, you’ll first have to determine the type of flat roof you want. Flat roof solutions include:
It is a roof built with three or more waterproof plies alternated with hot tar. It is then ballasted by smooth river stone. This type of roof is extremely attractive, highly fire retardant and is on the cheaper end of flat roof types, but it’s also very heavy. It’s quite smelly, and messy to install. Sometimes joists need to be strengthened. Over time, it becomes brittle and cracks. It’s definitely not a job you can do yourself either. (This type of flat roof that is usually not recommended for occupied homes)
Rubber Membrane Roof
Rubber is a very durable material, and it is fairly light. The rubber is made to resist sun damage, and it’s very resistant to tears and scuffs. This type of roof can increase your energy bill because it absorbs heat and while leaks are easy to fix, it’s more susceptible to them as well.
This roof is created with one layer of asphalt-treated, granule-coated felt which is either hot-sealed or cold-cement-sealed to a base sheet or prim decking. It is fairly easy to install and is energy friendly because it reflects heat. It’s not very resistant to tears or scuffs, and if the torch-down application is used, it can be a fire hazard, particularly when not properly done.
There are also other flat roofing solutions that include sprayed polyurethane foam, self-adhesive rolls and others. Talk to us about the various types of roofing materials and get help determining which is best for your home and your budget.
