The most common application of flat roofing in Toronto is two-ply, modified bitumen membrane systems. Modified Bitumen roof systems utilize asphaltic membranes modified with SBS or APP bitumen and reinforced with fiberglass or polyester mats to produce a strong and flexible waterproofing membrane. These systems are very versatile and can be installed using hot asphalt, cold adhesive, torch applied or self‐adhered.Toronto-Roofing-SOPREMA-DIAGRAM

Toronto Roofing is a certified installer of IKO modified bitumen membrane systems in order to provide homeowners the high quality installation of the product.

When it comes to commercial and industrial flat roofing applications, the most common water-proofing systems are both modified bitumen and built-up tar and gravel systems. The thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) and ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) systems, both single-ply membranes, are alternatives for application in the commercial setting.

Energy Efficiency

TPO is considered to be highly reflective, reflecting nearly 90% of heat back into the atmosphere.  This membrane can save you hundreds of dollars on monthly energy bills.

While EPDM and modified bitumen offer the lowest energy efficiency when they heat up in the summer and increase energy bills.

Keep in mind

It is vital to seek a company that specializes in single-ply flat roofing to make sure that there will be no leaks after installation. Many people make the mistake of hiring contractors who specialize in sloped roofing, but have no experience when it comes to flat roofing.

Investing in a waterproofing roof system should be positioned around selecting flat roofing that is designed to be the cost-effective alternative over its entire lifetime. Flat roofing lifetime is typically 20 years or more.

The key to keeping your flat roofing replacement cost to a minimum and prolonging flat roofs’ life is to implement a periodic maintenance plan. This is especially important for flat roofing for commercial use.
