Flat Roof services

More and more, new residential buildings are built with flat roofs, especially those with a contemporary look. This type of roof represents great advantages. It allows you to benefit from additional spaces, like a terrace or a garden to enjoy your property even more, especially if you are in town and you have restricted space. Most flat roofs are covered with elastomeric products and Duro-Toit's roofing team ensures they are of perfect quality. Elastomer is also the material offering the best durability, especially in our harsh climate. It also offers an exceptional price/quality ratio. Les couvreurs Duro-Toit can assist you with new construction, a repair or an addition to an existing roof in the Greater Montreal Area.

Flat roof ventilation

Roof ventilation is the key to preserving the integrity of a building and avoiding a number of problems. According to the National Building Code of Canada, all structures must ensure maximum ventilation.

Flat roof insulation

The insulation of a flat roof depends on the system and the building requirements. These systems include the ventilated flat roof and the thermal roof. In the second case, insulation is critical, because, unlike the first system, the flat roof is not ventilated.

Flat roof structure

An effective roofing system requires a structure and decking that effectively supports the covering of the flat roof. This condition is essential to optimize the longevity of the covering and to ensure the integrity of the building.

Flat roof sealing

The key issue when planning to recover your roof is to choose a skilled workforce and the right system for the building. Manufacturers have specific requirements governing the installation of their products.

Flat roof water infiltration

Water infiltration occurs for a number of reasons. It can be the result of a ventilation or insulation deficiency, improper sealing of the roof sheathing, and even an accumulation of snow.

Flat roof membrane

Proper covering seals the roof and protects the property against the weather. When the time comes to choose a new covering for a flat roof, several criteria must be considered to turn that expense into a long-term investment.

Flat roof inspection

The inspection of a flat roof must consider several critical issues. An evaluation of the system and its components is needed to gather all information relevant to your roof.

Flat roof snow removal

Snow removal and ice control are essential for flat roofs. These necessary activities preserve the integrity of the whole building. Preventive action also wards off all damage caused by a surplus of snow and ice.

Roofers for Flat Roofs

In architecture, every inch of a home counts, even the roof! You can transform your regular flat roof into a green roof. Often landscaped in a garden or terrace, it is covered with vegetation and is an increasingly popular alternative for owners of flat-roofed homes. You do not have to be a gardener to build a green roof. Some perennials and native plants will do just fine! The installation of a green roof has several advantages. It is very effective against greenhouse gases. The green cover also provides enhanced natural insulation against heat, cold, noise and wind. In addition, the green roof is extremely resistant to fire. The white roof is also an ecological choice to consider. Often required by municipalities, it minimizes the creation of heat islands in urban areas by reflecting the sun's rays. The white roof is offered in a multitude of products including elastomeric membrane and can be installed on both residential and commercial roofs.
