Modern Flat Roof Materials Shaping the Homes of the Future

When you need to fortify your roof against damaging winds and hail, where do you turn? It’s time to discover a game changer in flat roof materials. 

On the surface, these materials may look flat (go figure) and boring, but they are true weather warriors. And they’re not just about protection. Today’s flat roofs can also add aesthetic appeal to your home.

Take a minute to explore today’s modern roofing materials and see how you can combine defense and beauty to protect your home’s structure. 

Built-Up Roofing: Time-Tested Resilience 

Known as BUR in the industry, built-up roofing is a time-tested solution for flat roofs. It combines asphalt with reinforcing materials to create a robust barrier against the elements. 

While traditional roofing methods involve layering asphalt, felt, or fiberglass, modern approaches use advanced materials for improved durability and environmental sustainability.  BUR roofs also offer versatility, allowing customization to suit various climates and building specifications. 

Some BUR systems incorporate environmentally friendly materials. For instance, recycled content or bio-based asphalt modifiers reduce environmental impact. These materials also promote sustainability.

With its proven track record and adaptability, BUR remains a top choice for flat roof applications.

EPDM: The Weather Warrior for Your Roof

Meet EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) roofing. Constructed from a synthetic rubber compound, this material stands out for its exceptional durability and weather resistance.

Its flexible nature allows for easy installation. EPDM easily accommodates building movements without compromising integrity. 

With the ability to withstand UV rays and temperature extremes, EPDM also provides reliable protection against the sometimes harsh weather conditions in Georgia.

EPDM membranes require minimal maintenance. That translates to long-term cost savings and peace of mind for property owners.

TPO Roofing: Optimizing Energy Efficiency

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) roofing systems feature energy-saving capabilities. But that’s not all: this material is also weather-resistant.

Composed of a thermoplastic compound, TPO membranes offer superior reflectivity. It is an excellent material to help reduce cooling costs and environmental impact. 

The heat-welded seams create a seamless, watertight barrier against leaks. That means you’ll have a roof that performs well in Georgia’s climate.

Lightweight and easy to install, TPO roofs offer a cost-effective solution for both commercial and residential applications.

PVC Roofs: Durability Meets Peace of Mind

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) roofing is prized for durability and fire resistance. With a PVC roof, you can rest easy knowing your home and its most important assets – you and your family – are safe.

Beyond fire resistance, PVC roofs exhibit exceptional resistance to chemicals, punctures, and UV damage. 

Available in a variety of colors and styles, PVC roofs offer versatility and customization options to match any architectural aesthetic. Your roofing contractor can also fabricate PVC to accommodate unique roof shapes and sizes
