Flat Roofing

flat-roof

Flat roofing comes in several different types including Built Up Roof, Modified Bitumen and Rubber Membrane. These styles each have their own specific benefits. Built Up Roofs, or BUR, is the most common flat roof.  BUR roofs are very fire resistant, yet are also heavier. They are made up of at least 3 layers or waterproof material with tar placed between each layer and topped with gravel. Modified Bitumen is available in a peel and stick style as well as a torch down version. This type of roof will help save energy and money on heating and cooling costs. Lastly, Rubber Membrane roofs are lightweight roofs that reflect heat. To properly decide which type of flat metal roof is right for your home, contact Garvin Construction.
