Flat roofing materials
- Built-up roofing (BUR): Built-up roofing involves the application of roofing felt (tar paper) and asphalt-based roofing tar, often in multiple layers. A top layer of gravel or a reflective coating is required to cut down on heat gain and improve durability. Maintenance and repair work usually call for more felt and coating layers to be applied. BUR is an economical option, it can't compete with more modern flat roofing materials in terms of low maintenance, light weight and durability.
- Modified bitumen: Modified bitumen roofing comes in large rolls and is generally easier to handle and apply. The material is rolled out so that the seams overlap, and they are then fused with a torch or sealed with special adhesive. The roof surface gets a reflective coating for durability and reduced heat absorption.
- EPDM: Ethylene propylene diene monomer, or EPDM, comes in large rolls and is a common choice for larger buildings. EPDM is a flexible rubber material that is glued to the roof substrate and adjacent EPDM sections (installation with mechanical fasteners is also possible). An EPDM roof provides great durability with minimal maintenance, but it often requires special treatment for energy efficiency purposes.
- PVC: Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), is a single-ply roofing material made the same high-performance plastic used in plumbing pipes. Like EPDM, PVC is most frequently used on larger commercial roofing jobs. Seams between PVC sheets are welded together with a specially designed heat gun. The resulting membrane is impermeable to moisture, with excellent durability. Because PVC roofing is naturally white, it has excellent heat-reflective qualities without any coating or extra treatment.
- TPO: TPO is short for thermo-plastic olephine, the chemical composition of this fabric-like roofing material. TPO is a newer roofing technology that comes in rolls of different sizes, making it suitable for a variety of flat roof projects. It can be installed with adhesives, mechanical fasteners or heat welding. TPO roofing is treated with a reflective coating folllowing application to reduce heat absorption.
