Roof replacement solutions for flat roofs 

Bruce’s Roofing provides roof replacement services in Maple Valley, Kent, WA, Auburn, WA, Renton, Bonney Lake, Enumclaw and surrounding regions.  

Below are five common solutions for replacing flat roofs: 

  1. Built-Up Roofing (BUR): This traditional method involves alternating layers of roofing felt or fabric material with bitumen (asphalt or coal tar) and finishing with a top layer of gravel or mineral granules for protection against UV rays and weathering. BUR roofs are durable and can last for several decades with proper maintenance. 
  2. Modified Bitumen Roofing: Modified bitumen is a single-ply membrane made from asphalt and rubber modifiers. It is often installed in multiple layers, either by torching the layers together, using adhesives, or with a self-adhering backing. This type of roofing offers good flexibility and weather resistance. 
  3. EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer): EPDM is a synthetic rubber membrane that is highly durable and resistant to weathering, UV exposure, and punctures. It is typically installed in large sheets and sealed at the seams with adhesive or tape. EPDM roofs have a long lifespan and require minimal maintenance. 
  4. PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) Roofing: PVC roofing membranes are made of reinforced thermoplastic materials and are heat-welded at the seams to create a watertight barrier. PVC roofs are resistant to chemicals, fire, and punctures, making them suitable for commercial and industrial applications. They also have excellent reflectivity, reducing energy costs for cooling. 
  5. TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin): TPO roofing membranes are composed of a blend of rubber, ethylene, and propylene. Like PVC, TPO membranes are heat-welded at the seams to form a seamless, durable roofing system. TPO roofs offer excellent resistance to UV radiation, chemicals, and punctures, and they are often chosen for their energy efficiency and environmentally friendly properties. 

When considering roof replacement options, factors such as budget, climate, building use, and maintenance requirements should be taken into account to determine the most suitable solution for your specific needs.
