Choosing The Right Material For Your Flat Roof
When choosing materials for a flat roof, there are several factors to consider, such as cost, durability, and design of the roof. Here are some common materials we use for flat roofs:
3 layer mineral felt system.
Mineral felt roofing is a popular roofing option for both residential and commercial buildings with flat or low-pitched roofs. The mineral granules provide a protective layer that helps to reflect sunlight and protect against UV radiation, making the roof more durable and longer-lasting. One of the advantages of mineral felt roofing is its affordability. It is relatively low-cost compared to other roofing options such as single-ply roofing. Another advantage of mineral felt roofing is its durability. The mineral granule surface helps to protect the roofing material from weathering, punctures, and other types of damage. However, like any roofing material, regular maintenance is necessary to ensure the roof remains in good condition. Overall, mineral felt roofing is a reliable and cost-effective option for flat and low-pitched roofs. It offers durability, protection, and comes with a lifespan of 15 - 20 years making it a popular choice for many property owners.
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is a type of synthetic rubber commonly used as a roofing material for flat or low-slope roofs. It is highly durable, weather-resistant, and can last up to 50 years or more with proper installation and maintenance.
One of the benefits of EPDM roofing is its flexibility. It can expand and contract with changes in temperature and weather conditions without cracking or splitting, which makes it a good option for buildings in areas with extreme weather conditions.
EPDM roofing is also resistant to UV radiation, ozone, and other environmental factors that can cause damage to other roofing materials. It is also highly resistant to punctures, tears, and other types of physical damage.
In addition, EPDM roofing is relatively easy to install, making it a good choice for both new construction and roofing replacement projects. It is also lightweight, which can reduce the amount of structural support needed for the roof.
However, it is important to note that EPDM roofing requires professional installation to ensure that it is properly sealed and protected against leaks. Regular maintenance and inspections are also important to ensure the longevity of the roof.
Overall, EPDM roofing is a reliable and long-lasting option for flat and low-slope roofs. It offers durability, flexibility, and resistance to a variety of environmental factors, making it a popular choice for many property owners.
GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic), also known as fibreglass roofing, is a popular roofing option for flat and low-pitched roofs. It is made of a composite material consisting of glass fibers embedded in a matrix of polyester resin. GRP roofing is known for its durability, strength, and long lifespan.
One of the benefits of GRP roofing is its flexibility. It can be molded to fit almost any shape or size, making it a good choice for roofs with unusual shapes or features. It is also lightweight, which can reduce the amount of structural support needed for the roof.
GRP roofing is highly resistant to weathering, UV radiation, and other environmental factors that can cause damage to other types of roofing materials. It is also resistant to fire and chemicals, making it a good option for buildings with hazardous materials or equipment.
In addition, GRP roofing is relatively low-maintenance. It does not require painting or coating, and can be cleaned easily with soap and water.
However, it is important to note that GRP roofing requires professional installation to ensure that it is properly sealed and protected against leaks. It also requires a relatively high level of skill to install, and should only be done by experienced roofing contractors.
Overall, GRP roofing is a strong and durable option for flat and low-pitched roofs. It offers flexibility, resistance to environmental factors, and low maintenance, making it a popular choice for many property owners.
