The 3 Best Materials for a Flat Roof: Choosing the Right Roofing Solution

Selecting the right material for your flat roof replacement is a crucial decision, that impacts the durability and longevity of your roofing system. At Reken Roofing Team, we are committed to empowering homeowners with the knowledge to make informed choices in the roofing industry.

Let’s explore the top three materials for a flat roof replacement:

1.Modified Bitumen (Base & Cap):

● Known for its reliability and durability, the Modified Bitumen roofing system, often referred to as Base & Cap, is a popular choice for flat roof replacements. At

Reken Roofing Team, we prefer the use of ModifiedPLUS NP180 Base Sheets and ModifiedPLUS NP250 Poly Cap Sheets for enhanced performance and longevity. This system involves layering a base sheet and a cap sheet, providing a robust and long-lasting solution. Its proven track record makes it a trusted option for various residential and commercial applications.

2.EPDM Membrane Roofing:

● EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is a synthetic rubber black membrane widely utilized in commercial and medical facilities. While more common in commercial settings, EPDM has found its place in residential roofing. Its exceptional durability creates a virtually bulletproof rubber roof system. A fully adhered 0.060 thickness EPDM flat roof can offer an impressive lifespan of 25 to 30 years, providing homeowners with peace of mind.

3.TPO Membrane Roofing:

● TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) is a single-ply white membrane suitable for both commercial and residential roofing. In contrast to EPDM, TPO’s white membrane reflects heat rather than absorbing it. This reflective quality contributes to energy efficiency, making it an environmentally conscious choice. TPO membrane roofing is known for its versatility, ease of installation, and resistance to various environmental factors.
