Compared to traditional sloped roofing, a flat roof requires greater care and expertise. At Crest Roofing & Co., it is our goal to provide residential and commercial property owners from Edmonton and the surrounding areas with all the tools and information needed to ensure proper flat roof installation, maintenance, and repair of their properties.
Unique Features and Requirements of Flat Roofing
When it comes to flat roofing, Edmonton property owners need to be informed of the unique issues that come with this particular design element. Unlike a sloped roof, which has features that direct water down and away from your home or building, a flat roof requires specialized drainage systems and regular maintenance. Another thing to consider when installing a flat roof is whether this space will receive any foot traffic.
If you are a property owner looking for flat roofing contractors, our expert crew at Crest Roofing & Co. can help. With over 18 years of experience in flat roof installation, replacement, and repair, our team has built a reputation for quality and excellence.
Reliable Flat Roof Installation Contractor
Crest Roofing & Co. are experts at flat roofing design, installation, and repair. At Crest Roofing & Co., we use high quality materials for flat roof installation to maximize the life expectancy of your roof. We offer a range of flat roof solutions in Edmonton for residential and commercial applications, including:
Built-Up Roofing (BUR) or Tar and Gravel Roofing
This is an “old-school” type of flat roof treatment that involves the application of several layers of roofing felt and asphalt-based roofing tar with a top layer added to prevent heat penetration and improve durability.
SBS Torch-On Roofing Services
This type of treatment is ideal for residential and small- to-medium size commercial flat roofs. The material is rolled out with the seams overlapping, then the seams are bonded using a torch or special adhesive. There is a layer added for enhanced durability and to prevent heat absorption. SBS torch-on roofing is a type of modified bitumen membrane that is made from blending asphalt with rubber to make a very durable product. One of the types we use is called 2-Ply SBS Torch-on where torches are used to blend the two-layers together, creating a uniform sheet.
EPDM Flat Roofing
EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene monomer, and this type of roof can last for 20 years with minimal maintenance. It’s dark tone, however, allows it to absorb a great deal of heat. As a fix, you can add a reflective top coating or an EPDM membrane with a white top layer.
PVC Flat Roofing
Made from polyvinyl chloride or PVC, this provides top performance for a premium price. PVC is commonly used on larger commercial roofing jobs but is also ideal for small roof deck areas.
TPO Flat Roofing
TPO stands for thermo-plastic olephine, a light, affordable single-ply option, this material comes in rolls of varied sizes, making it ideal for a wide range of flat roof projects.
