Want a Great Price on Flat Roofing?
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES?
There are four main types found on residential homes:
- Kinard Thermo Insulated Roof System
- Fiberglass built-up roof
- Tar and gravel built-up roof
- 1- ply, known as rolled roofing
So What is the Difference?
Fiberglass Built-up & Tar and Gravel
The roof covering is a layered combination of hot asphalt and roof membrane, covered with small gravel creating a finished product.
Difference between the two is that one has gravel and the other does not.
- If installed correctly and maintained, it could last well over 15 years.
- The built up roof must be coated and maintained every two to four years
- No manufacturer’s warranty
- Difficult to repair
- Not many contractors left to maintain or install
- Becoming outdated due to the use of hot asphalt
Kinard Construction and Roofing recognizes that having your roof repaired or replaced is never convenient; it pales in comparison to the inconvenience and cost of ignoring the impact of what your roof has endured over the years. The older a roof gets, the more sensitive it becomes to the factors of direct sunlight and rain. Many people are surprised to learn the extent of their roof damage especially when their roof appears to look fine.
Don’t Let Your Flat Roof Get Like This!
Not maintaining your roof at least twice a year could result in cracks, leaks and damage to the roof topping itself, requiring repair or replacement.
