Elastomeric membrane roofs easily meet the highest industry standards and offer a host of other benefits, making them a popular choice for flat roofs.

The white elastomeric membrane is gaining in popularity and is now mandatory in some cities and boroughs.
The TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) membrane is made of plastic. A new installation method, requiring less glue, makes for a more economical and eco-friendly membrane. Furthermore, it is easy to inspect this type of membrane and perform alterations if necessary.
This type of multilayer coating has been used for a long time and has a life span of about 15 years. Composed of several asphalt-filled layers, the last of which being covered with gravel, asphalt and gravel roofs require maintenance.

Quite often, minor but neglected defects will cause the roof to be entirely replaced prematurely.
The EPDM roofing solution is a durable, highly weather-resistant and easy to maintain option. EPDM monolayer membranes are made of a synthetic rubber composed of ethylene, propylene and diene.
