Having a flat roof is great for hosting summer barbecues, social events, and even for relaxing day-to-day activities. Maintaining a flat roof, however, can become a tedious process due to its inability to remove rain and snow buildup by itself. It is essential to have a proper draining system and waterproof treatment to ensure full and lasting functionality of your roof. By having our exemplary flat roofing Burnaby professionals handle your next project, you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of having a flat roof without having to worry about structural damages and roofing failures.Torch-on membrane
Also referred to as modified bitumen roofing, torch-on membrane is a mixture of bitumen and rubber-like materials. While regular bitumen lacks waterproof characteristic, the chemical modification makes torch-on membrane an excellent choice for flat roofs. Our flat roofing contractors will thoroughly apply the membrane on your roof by using a heat torch to adhere the membrane on the surface. The rubber component of modified bitumen adds more elasticity to your roofing as well, making it more resistant to temperature-related damages in extreme weathers.Tar & gravel
Tar and gravel has been commercially used for flat roofing since the 50s and the 60s for all types of residential and commercial buildings. These materials are popular because it is easy to apply, costs significantly less than most other roofing options, and lasts for many decades without any major issues. Tar and gravel roofing is essentially a mixture of bitumen and gravel, and is extremely durable against impacts and harsh weather conditions. Furthermore, the gravel component is capable of deflecting heat, which can help keep your building cool during hot summers!
