Complete Flat Roof Replacements
The typical lifespan of a flat roof system is approximately 20 years. This lifespan will be extended if you implement a proper roof system early in its life. The flat roof experts at ALR Commercial will provide you with a free consultation on replacing your flat roof. They will also work with you to find the best flat roof for your needs – and the most cost-effective option. Your new flat roof system will include semi-annual visits to inspect the roof for the first 4 years. This is to ensure that the system is performing well and that all of the components are responding well to the elements. This will also ensure that your flat roof system reaches or exceeds its projected lifespan.
Flat Roof Systems
ALR Commercial provides expert service and top-quality commercial and industrial roofing materials. These flat roof systems include SBS torch on, EDPM Rubber, TPO, and BUR systems.
SBS torch on roofing is also known as “modified bitumen roofing”. This roofing material is made of rubber-enhanced bitumen. The rubber in the bitumen makes the roofing material more elastic than normal bitumen. This makes it better able to withstand big temperature changes. It has good waterproofing and insulation capabilities. It is also durable when faced with strong winds and hail. The average lifespan of an SBS torch on roofing is approximately 15-20 years.
TPO (“thermoplastic polyolefin”) is a type of single-ply membrane that is used in commercial roofing. It was introduced to the roofing industry in the 1990s. However, its lifespan is now considered to be approximately 25-30 years. TPO is easy to install and is economical. It is also UV and heat resistant. It is also a good choice for a flat roof as it is resistant to dirt build-up, mould, and tears.
Other Flat Roofing Options
EDPM (“ethylene propylene diene terpolymer”) is a very resilient synthetic rubber. It is also a common choice for roofing systems including low slope and flat roofing. EDPM is a very versatile material that can work in many different flat roofing installations. It is also very resistant to wind damage. This makes it a great choice for Alberta cities such as Lethbridge and Calgary which experience high winds. Additionally, EDPM has also been on the roofing market for almost 50 years which makes it a well-established and time-tested roofing material. These roofs also have a long lifespan that may exceed 25-30 years if properly maintained.
BUR systems (built-up roof membrane systems), also known as “tar and gravel roofs”, are one of the oldest types of roofing systems that are still used today. This type of roofing system commonly uses alternating layers of roofing felts/ply sheets, coal tar, and asphalt. The BUR system uses many different materials for the top layer. Gravel is by far the most popular material for the top layer. The average lifespan for a BUR system is 15-30 years. The roofing experts at ALR Commercial will help you to select the roofing material that’s right for you!
