Designer Roofing & Restoration LLC installs and maintains most types of residential low-slope roofing. Traditional flat roofing systems include modified bitumen and single-ply membranes. Whether you need installation, restoration or a repair, we offer solutions that will provide waterproof protection while minimizing maintenance and energy costs.
Short for thermoplastic polyolefin, TPO has quickly claimed a large segment of the single-ply membrane market. TPO withstands tears and punctures, it’s easy to install, and it comes in larger rolls for fewer seams and a reduced chance of roof failure. TPO seams are heat-welded, making the finished installation completely waterproof, even when pooling water occurs.
Another important benefit of TPO – most commonly found in white – is its reflective properties which reduce indoor temperatures and minimize utility costs.
PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, has proven itself as a premier single-ply membrane with its strong, heat-weldable seams and resistance to fire. A PVC roofing system may cost slightly more than TPO, although installation procedures are nearly the same. If you want a high-performing thermoplastic roofing system installed, with the peace of mind that comes with heat-welded seams, choose a PVC roofing system.
EPDM, or ethylene propylene diene monomer, is a black, synthetic rubber single-ply membrane with a strong reputation for durability. Seams are taped and treated with adhesives. When properly installed, an EPDM roof can last 30 years, but seams will require maintenance during that time.
One of the most common low-slope roofing systems, asphalt-based modified bitumen is produced in rolls and either torch-applied or manufactured to be self-adhesive. The strength and durability of modified bitumen is determined by the number of layers in the installation.
