Flat Roofing

Flat Roofing: Ideal for Patios and Lanais 

They offer a clean, contemporary look and are very easy to maintain. However, because they are so flat, they can be more prone to leaks than other types of roofs. That’s why it’s important to choose a reputable and experienced roofing company like Tactical Roofing Company to handle your flat roof installation or repair.

There are two main types of flat roofs in Florida: Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) and self-adhesive Modified Bitumen (Mod-Bit) membranes. Both have their own unique benefits, drawbacks, and price points, so it’s important to consult with a roofing expert to determine which type is right for your building. 

 

Types Of Flat Roofing

Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing, when heat is applied, becomes pliable and can be molded and fused into a watertight barrier. As it cools, the material hardens, becoming a durable layer that protects the roof from mother nature and internal heat loss, according to Energy Star. A TPO roofing system uses several layers to attach the thermoplastic membrane to the roof, usually leaving the reflective white TPO layer exposed. 

Modified Bitumen (Mod-Bit) roofing, a common choice for patios and flat areas in Florida, features a self-adhering base and cap sheet system. Resembling asphalt shingles, it comes in 3′ wide rolls and employs a ‘peel and stick’ self-adhesive backing instead of nailing. The layers overlap at their seams to establish watertight seals, and a weighted roller is used to firmly bond the roofing to the base decking.
