Modern architecture has traditionally been characterized by flat roofs. Flat roofs create long horizontal planes, reminiscent of the broad horizon line seen often in nature. They’re simple in form and function, and are a good example of the modernist principle of “clean lines”. Flat roofs can cantilever into daring overhangs for shade protection and solar gain control. They can be planted to create usable vegetated gardens and green roofs. They can even be accessible, unlike other roof styles, providing additional living space and used for viewing platforms displaying panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. The main purpose of the roof is to provide protection from weather. But it also plays a very large part in the overall look and style of the whole house, the energy efficiency, and durability. Choosing the right roof design is an important decision.Contact Us
Many apartment buildings have flat or slightly sloping roofs, similar to larger commercial buildings. Most town-homes have pitched roofs, similar to single-family residences.
Flat Apartment Building Roofs are commonly installed with a Single-Ply Membrane, a flexible sheet of compounded synthetic materials that are manufactured in a factory. There are three common types of membranes: thermosets, thermoplastics, and modified bitumens. These materials provide strength, flexibility, and long-lasting durability. The advantages of pre-fabricated sheets are the consistency of the product quality, the versatility in their attachment methods, and, therefore, their broader applicability. They are inherently flexible, used in a variety of attachment systems, and compounded for long-lasting durability and watertight integrity for years of roof life.
For Pitched Roof Townhomes, Asphalt products are the most commonly used roofing material. Asphalt products include shingles, roll-roofing, built-up roofing, and modified bitumen membranes. Asphalt shingles are typically the most common and economical choice for this type of roofing. They come in a variety of colors, shapes and textures.
