Why do flat roofs need different treatment?
Roofs with less than a 4" drop for every foot are considered to be “low slope.” If a standard shingle roofing were applied to such a flat surface, water would flow under the shingle and cause a leak.
Proper low-slope roofing involves large, tightly sealed pieces of material and does not use nails. Installed correctly, it will not leak during its lifespan. Our two most popular types of low-slope roofing are mineral roll and rubber EPDM.
Matching Mineral Roll
This very popular option—technically known as “modified bitumen product” —is coated with minerals just like a shingle. It comes in a variety of colors to match almost any shingle color, and rolls out in a mat... like one big shingle! Quality Built Exteriors is one of few companies who offer and recommend this product, which is both more attractive and less expensive than rubber EPDM.
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is an extremely durable rubber roofing membrane. The type we use is much thicker than most companies’ product, because Quality Built Exteriors goes above minimum building codes. Some thin rubber roofs can puncture with something as small as a stick falling from a tree!
Typically made from recycled products, EPDM can even be recycled after its use. Both water and fire resistant.
