Flat roof repair and construction services

Flat roofs are increasingly common on new residential buildings in Quebec and offer many advantages. They first and foremost provide the benefit of additional spaces, like a terrace or a garden to enjoy your property even more, especially if you are in the city and you have restricted space.

When installing or repairing a flat roof, many factors have to be taken into account such as materials, budget, size of the roof, etc., and the answers have to be provided by expert roofers.

No matter what project you have in mind, Les Couvreurs Duro-Toit can assist you with new construction, repairs 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. Our roofers can make the right diagnosis and work to stop these infiltrations.

Flat roof membrane

Proper covering, such as an elastomeric membrane, 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 by a professional roofer is needed to gather all information relevant to your roof.

Why construct or renovate a flat roof?

Flat roofs offer 3 main advantages: easy maintenance, cost-effectiveness and durability. The low slope of flat roofs provides easy access to gutters. This makes it easy to do a quick visual inspection to identify any problems. Having easy access to your roof is a great help when it comes to cleaning the various components.

Flat roofs are durable and can stand the test of time. They have a life span of 30 years or more and are made of tar and gravel, which prolongs their longevity. Flat roofs can withstand harsh weather more effectively than pitched roofs because they are less exposed to the elements. They also offer better wind resistance, which is particularly important given the weather conditions in Quebec.

Finally, flat roofs are cost-effective roofing solutions for any homeowner. They are a simple roofing option that requires less investment than a sloped roof.
