Flat Roof Installation in Toronto and GTA

High Skillz Roofing is a premier installer of flat roofs in the Toronto area. Flat roofs look and function differently than pitched roofs, so you want to ensure you are using a contractor who is familiar with the latest materials and building standards for flat roofs.

Pitched roofs, with their natural slope, allow water and snow to drain off quickly. Flat roofs have only a slight slope toward the scuppers, allowing water drainage. Flat roofs can accumulate quite a lot of snow during Toronto winters, so make sure your contractor is familiar with the building codes to ensure a flat roof will hold the weight of snow of ice.

When properly installed, there are numerous benefits to flat roofs.  Flat roofs give a modern look that is aesthetically pleasing to residential properties. Flat roofs also make it possible to build a second story to your home at a future date or use the flat space for a rooftop garden or entertainment space.

Contractors decide to go with flat roofs for one of two reasons. If the building is built with a modern architectural style, then a flat roof plays a significant role in the aesthetics of the building. The second reason for flat roofs is its convenience. Additions to homes with various pitches to the roof might be much easier if the addition has a flat roof.

For commercial buildings, flat roofs provide a convenient place to install HVAC systems, as well as providing an area for other storage uses. Flat roofs may also blend with the architectural style of the commercial area.

Flat roofs should always be installed by professional roofers, as any flaw in design or installation can result in imminent leaks. Leaks have the potential to do significant damage to your home or commercial building and are an inherent risk with flat roofs.

Some types of flat roofs can have a shorter life span than traditional pitched roofs. The materials used for flat roofs are different than those on slanted roofs, and the type of material will play a significant role in the life expectancy of the roof.  Find a trusted roofing company if you are considering having a flat roof installed.

Commercial Flat Roof installation in Toronto and GTA

Flat roofs are seen on commercial buildings throughout Toronto. The options for commercial roofing materials are somewhat limited. They include:

  • PVC membrane—an insulation board must be installed to provide a substrate and to help with energy efficiency. The membrane is installed in rows that are approximately six-foot-wide, with an overlap of six to eight inches. The rows are then welded at the seams to provide a watertight seal. Commercial roofing using the PVC membrane can be expensive, but with an expected life of greater than twenty years, it is often cost-effective in the long run.
  • EPDM Rubber—EPDM membranes often come in large pieces to avoid possible leaks at the seams. Installation is much like applying a giant sticker, but it must be done with quality and precision to prevent air bubbles or other defects.
  • Modified Bitumen—This popular option for flat roofs is installed in multiple layers. The layers are attached to each other, making it a labor-intensive process requiring skill and experience to install correctly. Some forms of Bitumen now have cold-rolled technology involving multiple applications of roofing tar.
  • PO—as with the PVC membrane, insulation boards are required. PO comes in rolls that are fastened to the insulation boards or combined with self-adhesive.
  • Spray-On Roof—spray-on roofing sounds easy. The material can sometimes be applied over an existing roof, reducing the amount of prep work needed. Spraying the roof evenly is still a delicate process that requires time and precision.
  • Built-Up Roof—These roofs are made of multiple layers of plywood sheets that are bonded together with hot asphalt. Top layers consist of gravel for added durability or a reflective coating for energy efficiency.

Your choice of commercial roofing material will depend on the cost outlay, the type of building you need to be roofed, energy costs, and the expected lifespan of the roof.  Remember, some materials may be significantly cheaper than others, but flat roof installation costs can drive the price up.

Whatever your choice of material for your flat roof, you want to take the time to compare roofing companies. High Skillz Roofing invites you to visit Google reviews to see what previous customers have to say. You can also find them under Homestar roofing in the Toronto area.
