Types of Flat Roofing We Install
When it comes to flat roofs, we install a few different types of materials to protect your home. For low slope roofs, we can install traditional shingles (though not always recommended in this case), roll-on asphalt roofing, or modified bitumen flat membrane. Each of these has its benefits from longevity to cost-effectiveness so be sure to speak with one of our roofing experts to discuss your options.
Traditional Asphalt Shingles
Most homes use traditional asphalt shingles. They are designed for slope roofs because of their overlapping nature. While they are not for use on flat roofs, they can be used on certain low-slope roofs. We work with high-quality CertainTeed® architectural roofing shingles that provide an attractive look and lasting protection.
Made with essentially the same material as traditional asphalt shingles, roll-on asphalt comes in large, heavy rolls that are used for low slope and flat roofs. It is applied in overlapping sections from roof end to roof end minimizing seams and areas where water can penetrate.
Modified Bitumen Flat Membrane
Commonly found on commercial buildings and other large flat roofs, Self-Adhered SBS-Modified Bitumen Roof Systems are very energy efficient. The mineral-based coating is reflective helping to keep your roof cool. The single-ply, asphalt-based underlying material is also incredibly water-resistant.

Reasons for Flat Roof Replacement
A properly installed flat roof should last around 20 years. Every home is different in its sun exposure and other environmental factors that affect the lifespan of your roof. There are some common signs that you might need a flat roof replacement. An inspection by a licensed roofer is the best way to determine when it will be the right time to install a new flat roof.
Your Roof is Over 15 Years Old
Simply enough, your roofing materials are designed to last a certain amount of time. Usually, around year 15 you may start to notice your roof degrading, It’s a good time to think about a flat roof replacement before and issues occur. When you have to unexpectedly replace your roof, it can be a hassle, along with the unforeseen expense.
Pooling Water or Leaks
Any flat roof runs the risk of standing water, especially a poorly installed one. If you can see your roof and notice pooling water a day or more after it rains, you may have some soft spots or issues with your roof slope or drainage system. The last thing you want is water to infiltrate your home so be on the lookout for leaks and problem areas.
Blistering or Cracking Membrane
If the protective materials of your roof are blistering, cracking or tearing you should have your roof replaced immediately. These areas open your home up to water, pests, and other potential issues. Problems tend to occur near seams or flashing and other joints. These areas can be lifted in extreme heat and winds.
Selling Your Home
A major sticking point for many homebuyers is the shape of the roof. What good is buying a new property if its primary form of protection from the elements is weak? You may want to have your flat roof replaced before you put your home on the market to improve property value and ensure a smoother negotiating process.
