Types of Flat Roof Replacement
When it comes to the types of flat roof replacement, you can choose the one that will work best for your expectations and your budget.
Single-ply. A single-ply flat roof replacement consists of a single layer of material called a membrane. This system is much more lightweight than some of its counterparts and also provides excellent waterproofing of the entire roof. Single-ply membranes are sometimes attached with special fasteners; other times they are applied with adhesive glue. The most common types of single-ply systems are poly-vinyl chloride (PVC), thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) and EPDM rubber.
Commercial Roof Coatings. There are a number of really good flat roof replacement coatings that are available for commercial uses. These coatings are generally utilized for buildings that are candidates for restoration versus full tear-off and replacement. Initially, an insulation material is applied directly to the roof deck. Then another coating is applied on top of this, made of urethane or acrylic. These seamless coatings also serve the purpose of waterproofing a roof, so that leaks are nearly impossible.
Metal Roofing. Standing seam or R-Panel metal is a popular choice for commercial and industrial buildings. These systems consist of pieces of large metal panels that are mechanically fastened to the roof decking. Sometimes, these metal sheets are fabricated to look like other materials such as tiles or shingles. When combined with special coatings, they are very effective at reflecting heat away from the structure. This conserves energy and can lower electric bills on a month to month basis.
Cost of Flat Roof Replacement
Very rarely is it necessary to completely tear-off an existing flat roof. Since that is the case, the cost of flat roof replacement is surprising lower than you might think. As long as the substrate and the roof decking is sound, you can generally add a commercial grade roofing system right over the top.
As an example, single-ply roofing such as TPO, PVC and certain commercial roof coatings can be installed on top of rigid insulation board that’s been attached to your old roof. As a matter of fact, flat roof replacement prices are a great way to keep costs down and may be able to be written off all at once.
