Imagine having a rooftop space with a lovely cabaña with a quaint garden around it and an elegant fountain tinkling gently in the background. Even if you only have a tiny yard, this beautiful personal space can be a reality in your home if you opt for flat roofing. This type of roofing, installed by local Minneapolis contractor, is the best way to ensure that all the space both below and above the roof is utilized efficiently. The possibilities are endless when you have all the space above your roof at your disposal. Whether you want to put up a storage shed for all the things you have accumulated over the years or a greenhouse for your exotic plants or an aviary for your exotic birds, this space can prove invaluable!
The most important component of a flat roof is the membrane or the sheet of material that is used to provide the waterproofing. Traditionally, this membrane consisted of tarpaper but now modern alternatives such as EPDM are available. The waterproofing of these roofs must be done without any compromise. Unlike in other roofing styles, in these roofs, if there is a leak, the water has to travel a long way before it becomes apparent that there is a leak. In the meantime, a lot of water could have soaked into the structure underneath the roof causing extensive damage that can be very expensive to set right. This is a problem that could arise due to lack of proper maintenance and it can happen with both traditional and modern roofing membranes!
A large number of materials can be used for the building of a low pitched or flat roof. These are asphalt, EPDM, Turboseal, CSPE, modified bitumen, cold applied liquid membranes, PVC membrane roofing, KEE, TPO, Curon, coal-tar-pitch BUR (built up roof), GRP roof fiberglass and so on. Take EPDM for instance. Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer is a kind of synthetic rubber and it is most commonly used as a roofing membrane due to its ease of application. Modern technology has eliminated most of the problems associated with the early versions of this membrane such as moisture gain problems under the membrane by vapor drive. This is a low cost membrane with a current warranted life-span of 30 years and expected life-span of 50 years!
There is no doubt that flat roofing is both cost effective and space efficient, as it is inexpensive to install and all the space below and above it can be used effectively. But one consideration you must never forget when it comes to this type of roofing is that it must only be handled by experienced professionals. Even a little slip where the membrane laying is concerned can cost you dearly in the future. When the roof is completed, it must be thoroughly sealed and watertight!
