Flat roofs can be used as a lovely extra space for you and your family to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities in the comfort of your home. However, flat roofing typically requires more care and upkeep for it to maintain its full functionality. Our Burnaby wet basement contractors provide exemplary flat roofing solutions that are designed to keep your roof functional, protected, and prepared for all weathers!Torch-on membrane
Torch-on membranes are also called modified bitumen roofing because it utilizes a mixture of rubber and bitumen materials. The rubber content adds waterproof characteristics that bitumen regularly lacks, making it an amazing candidate for flat roofing. These elastic roofing materials are ideal for areas that experience drastic temperature changes throughout the year. The materials are thoroughly sealed onto your rooftop using a heat torch that effectively bonds the membrane layers to the surface.Tar & gravel
Tar and gravel used to be one of the most popular flat roofing options in the 50s and 60s for all kinds of residential and commercial properties. Recently, these old-school roofing materials have been making a comeback in the home improvement scene due to its excellent performance ratings, hassle-free installation process, and significantly lower cost. Tar and gravel roofing is made up of layers of gravel and bitumen, and is highly resistant to deterioration. Properties that had tar and gravel type roofing installed more than 50 years ago are still maintaining fully functional roofs, proving how durable and long-lasting these materials can be. What’s more, the gravel is capable of reflecting light away from the roof, making it a fantastic venue for a cool summer party!
