Types of flat roofing systems

GRP Roofing
The GRP roofing system also known as Fibreglass roofing systems gives a robust and aesthetical look to your home. The roof can provide a slip finish to your house, which is suitable for balcony roofs that have foot traffic. To effectively capture a monolithic skin which has no visible joints, the entire roof surface and edge detail are installed in one continuous membrane which bonds with the roof decks. This is ideal for simple or complex roof designs that have lots of protrusions.

Tar and gravel
These are built-up roofs that are usually manufactured on site. They are made of multiple layers of various roofing materials that are held together with layers of hot or cold asphalt to provide redundancy. The roofs provide homeowners with the longest effective performance, are easy to maintain and repair, and are highly resistant to harsh weather as long as the drainage system is properly addressed.

Torch-on-roofing system
Torch-on-roofing can be described as the ideal roofing solution for residential flats or low sloped roofs. The roofing system is composed of both asphalt and resin. It is highly resistant to bad weather, debris, pests, and rotting. Due to the cold weather experienced in Calgary during winter season, this roof is the best choice for long-lasting roof protection. Although Torch-on-roofing is similar to tar and gravel roofing system, it is a bit lighter since there is no gravel. The roof does not produce any toxic or unpleasant fumes during the installation process. It gives your home a strong and attractive look that is weather resistant with superior waterproofing lasting for more than 20 years. This roof definitely cuts down on energy costs while at the same time increasing the value of your home.

A flat roof may not be the most ideal roof for the harsh Calgary weather. This is because as compared to a sloped roof, this roofing system does not shed off rain water or snow.
