Different Roofing Systems We Work With in Northern Alberta
Our team is well adept with various popular roofing systems. You can read about them below:
EPDM This is a membrane-type roofing solution, which is great for energy efficiency, durability and has properties like weather resistance and sun reflecting capabilities. These are made from synthetic rubber and are trendy options for flat roofing.
PVC PVC roofs are quite popular as they reflect sunlight, are weather-resistant and have a lot of energy efficiency benefits for the building. They can last for up to 20-30 years if installed properly and will require minimal maintenance. This is also a membrane-type roofing solution.
TPO TPO is more or less similar to EPDM, with the only difference being that thermoplastic polyolefin is used to make it instead of synthetic rubber. They are installed using layers of insulated boards and can last for 30-40 years if installed properly and maintained from time to time.
Modified bitumen These roofs are very light, yet they can match other roofing systems in strength and durability. They are based on a 2-ply system which makes them very light while still making them highly suitable for high-traffic areas. These make use of an asphalt material that is coated with minerals and rolled up into sheets.
SBS SBS is just a type of modified bitumen that is also available in membrane form. It is energy-efficient, weather-resistant and has a lower installation cost in general. It can last long in heavy traffic areas due to its strength from asphalt and the mineral coating. They can be applied by two methods:
Hot-applied SBS One of the oldest methods of installing SBS roofing, hot-applied roofing is known for its ease of application. A hot mop roof lasts around 15 to 30 years which is pretty short compared to other roofing materials.
Cold-applied SBS Cold adhesives have been found to be more effective than hotter ones. They are cost-effective and don’t require many precautions during installation. They are odourless and can be applied in occupied buildings, including schools and hospitals, safely.
Built-up roofing This is one of the most common types of roofing options available due to its cost-effectiveness and high durability. These kinds of roofs are easy to repair and maintain. They consist of multiple layers of insulation boards, gravel and tar, to create a strong and durable roof. With regular maintenance and inspections, these can last for over 40 years.
Asphalt roofing Asphalt is used on a variety of roof systems to replace open flame. It is a cost-effective material in terms of maintenance, repair and ease of installation. Despite being a fraction of the cost of other roofing systems, it is highly durable and has a longer lifespan. Asphalt can add to the aesthetics of any property as you can choose between various colours, textures, and patterns.
