Types of flat roofing –

Torch on roofing – These are rubberized forms of asphalt roof. A waterproof barrier is made using asphalt material which is melted into the surface of the roofs. This covers the entire surface of the roofs. Most of the commercial roofers go for torch on roofs as when installed by professionals, these roofs can last more than 20 years. Residential structures also benefit from this. Main benefits of these roofs are that they are leak and fire resistant.

PVC Roofing – PVC is a single ply roofing solution made from lower percentage of oil and petroleum than TPO or EPDM. PVC roofing can be installed by heat welding as it is quite strong and stable. This method is preferred as it allows the PVC roof to expand and contract with the building. Advantages of this is that it offers protection against chemicals, UV rays, fires and water leakages.

Advantages are that these roofs are affordable to make than TPO and PVC. Also these roofs require very little maintenance compared to other roofing.
