Rubber roofing has become more popular today due to it’s recyclable qualities. It’s a great alternative to conventional wood roofing as it is far more durable and flexible. With changing weather conditions during the seasons, rubber roofing acts as a strong barrier to the elements. Rubber roofs are also a top choice when considering a material to use with a flat roof as other materials often witness leaks over time.
There are two types of rubber roofing;
- Whole roof Systems use a single piece of seamless rubber to cover the entire roof.
- Shingled System are similar to other shingling layouts on steep roofs as rubber shingles are layered to provide a barrier between the home and the outdoors. Although being potentially more expensive, rubber roofs last longer than traditional asphalt or slate roofs and carry longer warranties. Other advantages include:
- Superior Material for Waterproofing
- Energy Efficient
- Easy to Install and Repair
