EPDM Flat Roof Replacement
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is a type of synthetic rubber made from recycled materials. EPDM roofs are extremely durable. Don't be surprised if you hear roofing contractors talk about TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) interchangeably in conversation at first. EPDM is a very popular option because it's durable and easy to install, and it has a longer lifespan than metal roofs.
Built-Up Flat Roof
A built-up flat roof (BUR) is made up of tar and gravel. For many people, a built-up roof is what comes to mind when they think of flat roofs. Built-up roofs have been popular for a long time because, in addition to being inexpensive and attractive, they're also efficient insulators.
Modified Bitumen Flat Roof Replacement
Modified bitumen is rolled out onto your roof, typically using a blowtorch to secure the modified bitumen to your roof. Understandably, there are dangers involved with the installation especially with an inexperienced installation crew. There are new and safer ways to install modified bitumen, so make sure to talk with your contractor about other methods.
Despite the possible dangers during installation, modified bitumen is easy and quick to install, and it also reflects heat well. But if your concerns over the installation dangers outweigh the benefits, talk to your contractor about your option for a safer roof.
