Elastomeric membrane is durable, easy to maintain and has many other benefits, including ease of installation. This type of membrane is typically installed on flat roofs. Its resistance to harsh weather, humidity and extreme heat allows it to provide excellent waterproofing performance for many years.
Conventional elastomeric membranes are installed using a torch that causes the different layers to fuse. Self-adhesive membranes are installed cold, eliminating fire hazards and unpleasant tar odours.

Asphalt-and-gravel roofing is ideal for flat and nearly flat, commercial roofs. This type of roofing is known for its durability and weather-resistance. It is made of multiple layers of roofing felt and liquid asphalt. A layer of gravel is laid on top of those materials, to protect the asphalt from UV light and the elements. This is a low-maintenance roofing type, because its composition makes it easy to repair localized damage at minimal cost over the roof’s lifespan.
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) roofing is a synthetic rubber membrane. It is very resistant to deep winter cold and extreme summer heat. It is prized by construction professionals for its elasticity and flexibility, which minimize cracking over the years. EPDM roofs are also considered highly environment-friendly because of their longevity and recyclability.
