About different residential roofing systems popular in the Toronto & GTA
Modified Bitumen or Mod Bit roofs are comprised of two to three layers of bitumen sheets. They are installed with a gas torch and have a light-coloured coating to reflect the sunlight and keep the indoors cool. That’s why this roof type is suitable for residences situated in regions with hot weather conditions. Plus, if you want to cut down on the electricity bills, this roof is suitable.
Built-up roofs feature alternating layers of asphalt and reinforcing materials that render a flat finish. They are water-resistant and have high tensile strength which makes them sturdy and can last for several years. In addition, sectional replacements or repairs can be conducted on these roofs without interfering with the daily activities of the house.
Tar & Gravel
Tar and gravel roofs are made of more than three laminated layers of asphalt-based sheets, tar and roofing felt. They are made tougher with another layer of mineral coating and bitumen. Light-coloured gravels are utilized to cover the dark patches on the layer to reflect the sunlight and protect the layer from further damages.
EPDM, ethylene propylene diene terpolymer or rubber membrane roofs are temperature-resistant, hardy and black in colour. They can contract and expand easily without any breakage as they are highly flexible. For this reason, residences located in regions with extreme temperature install this roof over other options available.
TPO, thermoplastic membrane roof features a single layer of ethyl propylene and polypropylene rubbers. It has a light-colour coating that can help in reflecting the sunlight. This roof type is also water-resistant and sustainable which signifies it can last for many years. This is one of the main reasons why homeowners choose this roofing service.
PVC or poly vinyl roofing is widely known for its solar-reflectivity and fire-resistance. It is made from an uninterrupted filament lattice, a scrim. The latter is laminated with PVC thermoplastics, other variants like TPE, TPO and PIB. This roof type is very flexible that means it can be customized based on your requirements without much effort.

Flat roofing is usually applicable for any house. However, we need to check the condition of your roof before recommending it.
There are different types of roofing systems and they are unique in treatments. We can suggest a particular roofing system only after investigating the condition of your roof and considering your budget.
Many homeowners choose flat roofs because they are considered energy efficient. Flat roofs also have enough open space to create a rooftop garden. Additionally, you save more on installation compared to other roof types, and maintenance and repair are easy.
When compared to a pitched roof, a residential flat roof is more affordable in terms of installation, repair and maintenance. Just be sure it is installed properly.
This is true only when the roof is not maintained. Blocked drains lead to water stagnation and leakage. Therefore, regular roof inspections are important. You can inspect for drain blockage, water stagnation and membrane cracks yourself, but to prevent critical problems, it is best to hire an expert inspector.
If your flat roof starts to leak, call a roof repair company right away. Until they arrive, use a tarp to stop the leak and prevent new ones from forming.
Most home insurance companies cover sinking or leaking flat roofs, but this all depends on your specific policy. Gradual wear and tear, however, is not necessarily covered. Therefore, you should have detailed knowledge about what is and is not covered by your home insurance policy.
The lifespan of an uncoated flat roof is approximately 10 years, but getting it coated every five years can extend its life considerably. Investing in regular roof coating prevents damage and saves greatly on repair costs.
People think flat roofs are more prone to leakage than other types as the water gets clogged more easily. But the reality is that flat roofs are not exactly flat; they have slight slopes to drain water. When these slopes are not constructed properly, water stagnates and leads to leakage.
