TPO Flat Roofs
When it comes to flat roofing systems that are durable, affordable, and easy to maintain, TPO is the best choice. TPO roofs are made of a combination of plastic and rubber, making them resistant to weathering and UV damage. Their lightweight design also makes them easy to install. Additionally, TPO roofs are among the most affordable flat roofing options available.
What is the cost of installing a flat roof?
Depending on the property and the company, the cost will vary. Each project cost varies based on a variety of factors, making it unique to its needs. The overall estimate for purchasing and installing a flat roof system depends on factors such as material quality, square footage, roof condition, region, and more. It is estimated that the average cost of a flat roof system is between $250 and $350 per "square" (100 square feet). Warranty coverage often comes from the manufacturer, the service company, or both.
How long does a flat roof last?
In general, flat roof systems come with the manufacturer's or retailer's warranty for a period of 10 to 20 years. Proper flat roofs can extend their lifespan by 20-25 years. Although the maintenance requirements of older flat roofs will be higher than those of newer systems, routine maintenance is essential for ensuring the roof's optimal performance.
Does my flat roof need to be repaired or replaced?
Your roof's damage level will determine how much work is needed. It should be possible to repair problems like small leaks, water ponding, wind damage, blisters, or tears in surface coatings.
The solution to a degrading roof surface may be a new professionally applied overlay. If there have been several repairs to the roof and it has degraded - perhaps starting to look a bit like a worn patchwork quilt - then a new overlay could be applied.
The best way to resolve more serious roof issues, particularly if they affect your timber base structure and your joists, is to replace your entire roof.
Are flat roofs energy-efficient?
Yes. Flat roofs help homeowners keep utility costs down, especially in warmer climates. Flat roofs offer less air stagnation space than sloped roofs, which trap warm air or allow cooled air to escape.
