Toronto Flat Roof Replacement
Flat roofs are a major problem, especially on older homes. If a flat roof is leaking, it could lead to mold, mildew and rot. If it’s not leaking, you’re probably noticing water stains on the ceiling and walls.Flat roofs can be damaged by many things such as hail storms, heavy winds, and even bird droppings.
If you have a flat roof on your home or business and it needs repair or replacement, you may want to consider contacting one of our local roofers in the area.
Repairing a flat roof is not an easy task, but it can be done if you take care of the right things in the right order. Here’s what you need to know when repairing your own flat roof:
What Is A Flat Roof?
A flat roof is simply a surface that sits above ground level. It protects your home from rain and snow, but many homeowners don’t realize that it can also leak or even collapse entirely if it’s damaged or poorly designed.
Flat roofs are usually constructed with felt underlayment, which protects against moisture damage. The underlayment is often covered by asphalt shingles or metal panels called skylights or soffits. Flat roofs can also be constructed with slate or tile rather than shingles or metal panels (called metal tiles). In most cases, these materials will not leak because they’re waterproof. They have a covering over them to keep out moisture and prevent rain from soaking into the structure below.
How To Repair A Flat Roof?
If you notice water stains on your ceilings or floorboards in your home, don’t ignore them! It’s important to take care of any leaks quickly because once water gets into your structure below, there’s little you can do about it except hope for the best outcome.
Best Material for Flat Roof Replacement and Repair in Toronto
You need to be certain when it comes to your roof replacement. This is an important decision and you want to know that you’re making the right choice when selecting the materials.
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is a synthetic rubber black membrane commonly used in commercial and medical facilities It’s mostly used for commercial work but can still be used in residential applications.
This durable material can last up to 30 years.
TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin)
Single-ply white membrane in roofing reflects heat (rather than traps and absorbs it).
If you need to keep your room cool, a TPO roof will do wonders for you as it keeps the room cooler. You still have the option to choose EPDM for other parts of your house.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride)
Polyvinyl chloride is a single-ply white membrane that is used in commercial and residential roofing. This material is also popular among homeowners for their flat or low slope roofs over living spaces or bedrooms.
The only major difference between TPO and PVC is that PVC is slightly more flexible and has been around longer than TPO. Like TPO, you can expect to get 25 years out of a PVC flat roof as long as the installation was done properly.
Standing seam metal roofing
A standing seam metal roof system is made up of a series of panels that lock together at the seams when heated. This allows for panels to move freely as they expand and contract while in extreme conditions such as high temperatures or dramatic changes in humidity.
Standing seam metal roofs are a more attractive and longer-lasting roofing than membrane roof systems.
