There is a wide range of roof coverings and it is important to choose one that is compatible with your type of building. The roof is the part of your building that suffers the most damage, since it is directly exposed to the elements. The harsh rays of the sun and the heat they create distort and weaken the covering during the hot season: snow, rain, and ice seep into small cracks during the cold season.
It is therefore important to invest in a durable high quality covering.
Elastomeric membrane is an ideal coating for gently sloping and flat roofs. This type of roof covering is suitable for almost all types of buildings and has a lifespan of between 20 and 30 years. It is a two-layered membrane system applied with heat and whose joints are connected with a blowtorch.
Moreover, this covering system is extremely light and can adapt to all types of steel decks. There are many ways to fix it to your roof, depending on the type of building you own (residential or commercial).
The roofing membrane is an excellent covering because of its durability and uniformity. It is also possible to choose a light colour for the topcoat to minimize the formation of heat islands during the warm season. The pale granules reflect the sun's rays instead of absorbing them.
Although asphalt can also be a suitable coating for a flat roof, it is a less durable solution that the elastomeric membrane. The latter has a life span of up to 5 to 10 years more than an asphalt roof. In addition, elastomeric membrane roofing needs only minimal maintenance compared with other types of coverings.
This type of roof is also the only one that allows a “resurfacing,” which gives you the ability to maintain it in good condition and increase its longevity.
