If you need installation or replacement of your residential or commercial flat or low-slope roofing in North Vancouver, you should be aware that Richmond flat roofing materials come in 2 options: tar and gravel and membrane systems.
Tar and Gravel
Tar and gravel – also called ballasted or “built-up” roofing – begins with a layer of roofing felt. A layer of tar follows, with gravel distributed on top to keep wind from disturbing the roofing. The gravel also deflects UV light, which can quickly wear away Burnaby flat roofing material.
This method of flat roofing in West Vancouver involves weatherproof membranes, which usually are constructed of synthetic rubber. These layers are glued down to the surface of the flat or low-slope roof after a fireproof base is laid. The next step is to “torch down” the membrane layer with flame or hot air. (This often dangerous step is why clients appreciate Chisholm Roofing’s experience.) At this point, your flat roof in New Westminster will be well able to withstand freezing and thawing cycles.
Whichever type of roofing you choose for your flat roof in Vancouver, you can always trust Chisholm Roofing for the most up-to-date, durable installation.
