3 Options for Flat Roof Replacement, Lemont, Illinois

Because of its level nature, a flat roof should only be made with certain materials. Using traditional shingles or slate will lead to frequent leaks, so it’s important to be careful of what you choose when conducting flat roof replacement. With some guidance from Baltic Roofing Co. of New London County, CT, you’ll make the right decision for your roof. Here are three of the most popular materials you can choose for a flat roof replacement. 

A Guide to Flat Roof Replacement 

1. PVC

flat roof replacementWhen it comes to flat roof types, PVC, or Polyvinyl Chloride, has emerged as a favorite. Its popularity can be traced to its impressive strength, which will withstand significant pressure. The surface is bonded to the surface of a roof with extremely hot air. This roofing type is also known for being energy-efficient, as it will repel the sun’s rays and keep your roof from getting too hot. 


Another option is EPDM, or Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. This material is a form of rubber. While EPDM may lack the elite strength of PVC, as well as its robust energy efficiency, it still offers considerable performance for a significantly lower price point. 

3. TPO

It’s also worth learning about a single-ply option, which is nearly a fusion of the two previous types. TPO, or Thermoplastic Polyolefin, uses both rubber and PVC properties. Since it’s easier to create a light-colored roof with TPO than the alternatives, this roofing material leads the discussion when it comes to energy efficiency. The white coloring will reflect light, lowering heat retention.
