Our Commercial Roofing Process

Our primary flat roof application is the Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) system. Typically, we will remove & dispose of all roofing and related sheet metal down to the deck or existing insulation. Then we add an insulation layer vapour barrier (or not), depending on the deck and what is present. We then supply and install base and cap sheet (torch on). The days of tar and gravel are gone. Typical warranties on the SBS system are 10 years from the manufacturer and 5 years on the workmanship.

Why can’t I shingle my commercial roof like a sloped residential roof?

Yedmonton commercial roofing - conventional non-insulated wood deckou can, and people sometimes do, but they are asking for problems. Architectural shingles, or 3 tab shingles, are meant for roofs with slopes of great than 2.0. They way the shingles are installed (overlap) you need a pitch greater than 2.0 to ensure gravity is strong enough to get the water off the roof. When you have a slope of less than 2.0 water will work its way up the shingle, eventually making its way underneath the shingle, onto your deck, and eventually into the building.

With roofs that are below 2.0 or flat, you want to make sure the roof is sealed completely so that water cannot work its way back into the building. The best product to use on Edmonton commercial roofs is the SBS 2-ply system briefly discussed above. SBS is a modified bitumen. Not only does it have a durable elastomeric blend with a great lengthening of the artificial fibres, but it also has great recovery properties for the drastic range of Edmonton temperatures.

Is it durable? Can it easily be cut?

Another advantage of the SBS system is it’s a 2-ply system, which is thicker than other 1 ply systems out there. The first layer (base) will absorb any shifts of the building’s foundation, specifically any movement of the roof while the cap sheet (top layer) protects the roof from the outside elements and any other mechanical intrusions. This slight granule top layer not only provides aesthetic advantages, it also has energy efficient qualities.

How much does it cost to replace a flat roof in Edmonton?

There are many variables involved in completely replacing a flat roof. Is the deck metal or wood? Does it need insulation or not? Is there dry rot that needs to be removed? A typical re-roof will fall in the $10 to $15 per sq. ft. range, depending on the questions above, and other factors.
