Flat roofs or low slope roofs are defined by having a roof pitch below 3:12 slope and can comprise of many different products
We specialize in EPDM, TPO, Metal Flat-Lock, and specialty products such as Dec-Tec.
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States and worldwide. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas. EPDM is available in both black and white, and is sold a broad variety of widths, ranging from 7.5 feet to fifty feet, and in two thicknesses, 45 and 60 mils. EPDM can be installed either fully adhered, mechanically attached or ballasted, with the seams of the roofing system sealed with liquid adhesives or specially formulated tape.
In recent years there has been a growing demand both in residential and commercial construction for more energy efficient roofing systems to help reduce costs as well as the negative impact on our environment. One of the products that has been able to meet the demand as a result has become increasingly popular is TPO roofing systems. TPO or thermoplastic polyolefin single-ply roofing membranes are known for their heat reflective properties as well as their ability to resist damaging ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure. In addition to this, TPO roofs also provide a number of other performance and installation advantages.
Metal Flat-Look roofing systems are typically used on roofs that are flat or have a low pitch or alternatively on very steep slopes. They are also used on curved surfaces such as domes and barrel vaults.
Flat seam roofing is constructed of 18″ by 24″, 20 oz. rectangular cold rolled copper, steel, or zinc sheets. Two adjacent sides of the sheets are folded over and two are folded under to form 3/4″ locks. Copper or stainless cleats of 16 or 20 oz. cold rolled copper are installed in each of the longitudinal and transverse seams. The finished pans are interlocked longitudinally and transversely, with staggered transverse seams and soldered.
