Types of Flat roofing
Choosing the right roofing requires the right information. You can choose from the various types of flat roofing such as:
Membrane roofs: Consists of insulated board layers made of synthetic rubber and thermoplastic, among other materials. When installed properly, membrane roofs can last up to 50 years. Membrane roofs are also energy efficient and prevent heat loss during cold winter months.
Built-up roofs (BUR): Built-up roofs are the most popular flat roof type due to their cost effectiveness and easy maintenance. They have multiple layers of insulation boards, tar and gravel, making them thick and tough. BUR layers are easy to remove and replace, making repairs fast and easy.
Modified Bitumen roofs: These comprise mineral-coated asphalt-based material that comes in a rolled sheet. Such roofs can be used as an alternative to BUR as they are lighter in weight and more durable.
The benefits of flat roofs are:
They are cost effective compared to pitched and sloped roofs
They are easy to install and maintain
They withstand strong winds and heavy rains
They are easily accessible for roof inspection
They are durable and have a long lifespan
