White roof

TPO roofing is the most common in Quebec because of its many advantages! Not only is it the economical solution, but also the most environmentally friendly one! In fact, it reflects the sun’s rays instead of absorbing them, therefore considerably reducing heat islands. What’s more, it resists UV radiation, atmospheric pollutants and bacteria, as well as being completely recyclable at the end of its useful life!

EPDM Membrane

This monolayer membrane comes in black or white, is resistant to wide temperature variations, pollutants and is easy to install. It has surprising longevity (the one on the roof of the Chicago airport has been there since 1963!), it is also 100% recyclable and offers great resistance to bacteria and various types of air pollution. The EPDM membrane is the go-to solution for re-roofing and new constructions.

Green Roof

Green roof, why not? It’s lovely, environmentally friendly and offers a host of positive features! In fact, a green roof delivers increased insulation, the possibility of growing various plants, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, adds soundproofing and prolongs the life of the membrane.

Elastomer Membrane

Not seen as often in Quebec and made of natural and synthetic rubber, this type of membrane is not recyclable at the end of its useful life, and it is more expensive than many of the other roofing materials. The elastomer membrane is applied with a blowtorch, which increases the risk of combustion if it is not applied by experienced roofers.

As you can see, there are many options when it comes to roofing materials for flat roofs; contact the specialists at Clinique de la toiture FCA to find out more about the advantages and disadvantages of each of them! We are located in Montreal, near Laval.
