Rubber Roofing, The Perfect Low or No-Slope Roofing Solution
Rubber roofing systems are designed for use on no-slope and low-slope structures. They are most commonly used on commercial roofs and the flats of residential roofs. Rubber roofing systems are known for their strong resistance to water, UV rays, weather and heat. Because of their elasticity and flexibility, rubber roofs are less likely to crack than some other roofing products. A proper installed rubber roof with water shedding and drainage features can last 20 – 40 years. Typically, they are low maintenance, however, standing water on the roof or glue that dries out can cause membrane seams to fail requiring reseaming.
