What is Flat Roofing?
Flat roofing typically consists of multiple layers which is laid down in a series of layers and then torched down and heat welded. This type of roofing material is known as Modified Bitumen Membrane. The membrane is made of a fiberglass layer between layers of rubberized asphalt which is then topped with a layer of small ceramic stones. This top layer helps to protect the roof from the elements as well as reflect heat and UV rays. This type of roofing is typically used in commercial and residential applications.
