Built-up Roof Systems

Built-up roofing systems, which have been used for almost 150 years, consist of multiple plies of reinforcing felts laid shingle fashion into continuous moppings of hot asphalt or cold adhesives. The system is then covered with aggregate set in an asphalt flood coat or final cold adhesive application. The plies can consist of organic membranes or glass fiber membranes.

Modified Roof Systems

This type of roof system uses modified bitumen membranes, which are factory-rolled products with rubberized or polymeric asphalt applied to one side at the factory. It can be installed by mopping on hot asphalt to adhere the membrane to the roof or, more commonly, by using a propane torch to heat the underside of the coating. Melting to a near-liquid, the membrane is then rolled onto the roof in a continuous operation.

EPDM Roof Systems

EPDM roofing systems, also known as single-ply systems, are factory-fabricated, rubber-roofing membranes, which are available in several thicknesses. Primarily, they are synthetic single-layer sheets of ethylene propylene diene monomer. EPDM systems can be installed using a variety of methods, including loose-laid and ballasted, fully adhered, or mechanically attached means.

Thermoplastic Roof Systems

This roofing system is similar to the EPDM system. However, its synthetic single-ply membrane sheets are made of a number of other materials, most commonly polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO). These membranes are available in a variety of thicknesses and colours.

Protected Membrane Roof Systems

Protected membrane roof systems generally consist of a polyester fabric sandwiched between two layers of hot rubberized asphalt. This versatile system is suitable for use in a wide range of applications — whether above-grade or below-grade, horizontal or vertical. This method, which is referred to as “hot rubber” when used on parking garages, parking decks, foundations and walkable decks, requires a specialized oil bath kettle to heat the rubberized asphalt.

Living Roofs / Living Walls

we can add a living roof application, also known as a green roof, to most of the following systems. Living roofs are an innovative, social and eco friendly roofing solution that incorporates living plant materials. Living roofs have proven to reduce health risks, environmental intrusion, save energy, reduce green house gases and extend a roof’s lifespan as well as save money. Living Wall applications are much alike.
