Asphalt and gravel
Asphalt and gravel is the roofing material you’ll see most often on the rooftops of Laval and the North Shore.
Composed of three to five layers of tarpaper covered with gravel, this type of roofing material forms a multilayer roof that’s resistant to impacts and extreme weather (especially when it comes to preventing water leaks from rain and melting snow).
Durable (lasting up to 25 years if properly maintained), easy to repair and, most of all, affordable, asphalt and gravel easily adapts to any flat roof in Laval or on the North Shore.
However, it’s important to bear in mind that an asphalt and gravel roof requires a lot of maintenance and must be properly installed by professionals.
Elastomeric membrane roofing is being used more and more frequently on flat roofs in Laval and on the North Shore, especially on commercial, industrial and institutional buildings.
Made up of a petroleum-based rubber coating covered with gravel, an elastomeric membrane is composed of two layers, which are fused together with a blowtorch during installation. Durable (lasting up to 35 years), very resistant to extreme weather conditions and easy to maintain and repair, elastomeric membrane roofing will offer excellent waterproof protection for any flat roof in the Laval or North
Shore areas. It can also add an esthetically pleasing aspect to any building thanks to the variety of available colors: brown, grey, red, green, black and white.
Composed of a single layer of thermoplastic polyolefin approximately 1.5 cm thick, white TPO membrane roofing has become an increasingly popular choice for flat roofs in Laval and on the North Shore.
During installation, the synthetic rubber joints are fused together using a hot air gun, thus avoiding the fire hazards associated with a blowtorch.
Maintenance-free, durable, strong and highly resistant to extreme weather and ultraviolet radiation, TPO roofing will provide extreme watertight protection to any flat roof in the Laval or North Shore areas.
Composed of synthetic rubber, EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) roofing has been the number-one choice for constructing and repairing flat roofs in Laval and on the North Shore for a number of years now.
Although it’s more expensive, EPDM roofing boasts strong resistance to ultraviolet radiation and extreme temperatures. Durable (lasting for at least 50 years), exceptionally watertight and rot-resistant, it’s also the most environmentally friendly roofing material.
