Flat Roof Membrane Replacement

Choosing the right flat roof membrane

Proper covering seals the roof and protects the property against the weather. When the time comes to choose a new flat roof membrane, a number of factors must be taken into consideration to turn this expense into a long-term investment.

With Les Couvreurs Duro-Toit, you can rest assured that you are choosing a Quebec company known for its expertise in flat roof repair and replacement. Our team of roofers is highly qualified and holds the certifications that guarantee efficient and long-lasting work.

TPO membrane

A TPO membrane is a fantastic material for flat roof construction. It’s made up of multiple layers of thermoplastic polymers that are fused together to create a strong shield against water and harmful UV rays. Not only is this membrane lightweight and flexible, but it’s also incredibly easy to install. That’s why it’s a top choice for both residential and commercial roofing projects.

EPDM membrane

EPDM membrane is a type of synthetic rubber material used for flat roofs. It is highly resistant to weathering and UV rays, ensuring that it can last up to 50 years. It’s easy to install and requires little maintenance, making it a popular choice for commercial and residential roofing.

Elastomeric membrane

An elastomeric membrane is a professional-grade roof covering made from elastic polymers. Its unique composition enables it to effortlessly expand and contract in response to temperature changes and building movements. This exceptional quality makes it particularly suitable for regions with significant temperature fluctuations, as it effectively withstands cracking and damage caused by extreme heat and cold.

How to choose the right flat roof membrane

Before choosing a new roof membrane, we must analyze your expectations, your budget and the building characteristics. First and foremost, the covering must be adapted to the type of building, the flat roof structure and the facilities in place. Traffic on the flat roof and amount of maintenance are also important.
After that, a budget must be established to be able to choose the type of roofing membrane and materials required for the work. Moreover, it is important to know and to respond to the regulations in place in your district or municipality in relation to the Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) number required of the roofing membrane.
If you prefer to conduct the needs analysis on your own, it is still recommended that you speak with an experienced roofer to make sure of the following:

  • Quality and type of roofing membrane
  • Durability and warranty components
  • Longevity and installation compliance

Your decision should also take any future projects into account to anticipate how they may affect the roofing system. For example, if you are planning an addition to the building, select a system that will facilitate the additional components, ventilation systems and accessories on the roof.

This way, your investment will last longer and will respond to both your short- and long-term needs.
