types of flat roof materials

What is a Flat Roof?

Unlike traditional peaked roofs, flat roofs have a minimal slope, typically ranging from 1/8-inch to 2-inch rise per foot of horizontal run in Arizona. This low slope allows for efficient use of space and cost-effective construction. However, proper drainage is crucial to prevent water from pooling and causing damage. Flat roofing relies on eaves, internal drains and/or scuppers, together with proper design to channel water away from the building.

Types of Flat Roof Materials

Selecting the appropriate flat roof material is crucial for maximizing its longevity and effectiveness against various environmental factors. Here's a breakdown of several popular and residential flat roofing options:
check icon
Modified Bitumen (Mod Bit):
This robust and heat-resistant roofing system comprises multiple layers of asphalt modified with polymers, reinforced with fiberglass, and topped with either gravel or a reflective coating to combat UV damage. Mod Bit provides exceptional waterproofing capabilities, making it a formidable choice for regions like Arizona, where exposure to intense sunlight is common.
check icon
Built-Up Roof (BUR):
BURs, a traditional flat roofing system, are constructed with alternating layers of asphalt-saturated felt or fiberglass mats, bonded together with hot asphalt or tar, and often topped with gravel or ballast. While BURs are renowned for their affordability and durability, they may necessitate more frequent maintenance compared to other alternatives due to their susceptibility to UV degradation and the need for periodic reapplication of protective coatings.
check icon
Single-Ply Membranes (EPDM & TPO):
These lightweight and energy-efficient membranes have gained popularity in recent years. EPDM roofing (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer), composed of synthetic rubber or various substrates such as fiberglass, offers outstanding flexibility and resistance to harsh weather conditions, including UV exposure.
TPO, a thermoplastic membrane, is lauded for its high reflectivity and thickness, which helps mitigate heat absorption and its straightforward installation process. Both EPDM and TPO membranes are typically affixed using adhesives, mechanical fasteners, or heat welding, ensuring a secure bond and minimizing the risk of leaks.
check icon
Additional Options:
Metal roofing is a viable alternative, especially in scenarios where superior fire resistance or a distinctive aesthetic appeal is desired. Metal roofs can be fabricated from various materials such as aluminum, steel, or copper, providing durability and longevity while offering ample protection against UV rays and other environmental elements.  The key issue with metal as a flat roofing material is to ensure that seams and lap joints are water-tight, with either concealed fasteners or rubber grommets at exposed fasteners.  Metal roof systems are especially effective when installed with tall standing seam ribs.
By carefully considering the unique properties and benefits of each flat roof material, property owners can make informed decisions to safeguard their investments and ensure long-term structural integrity.
