Planning to get roofing services for your residential space? Have a look at some of the available options:
| Flat Roofs
For decades, the "tar-and-gravel" roof was the standard for the residential flat-roof homeowner. With the advent of newer roofing materials, colour choices, and ease of application, the homeowner has more choices. The homeowner here has chosen a Modified Bitumen roofing material for application over their converted garage. Before you invest in your next roof, call Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. to discuss your options.
| Carports, Garages & Porches
More and more flat roof homeowners are turning away from the traditional Built-up Roof (BUR) to alternate flat roofing materials. This owner chose a fully adhered EPDM roof for his carport and overhang. In less than a day, his old roofing material was removed, and a new long-lasting roof was applied.
| Walkable Decks
Flat roofs, carports, garages, verandas and walkable decks are particularly difficult for the average homeowner to tackle. There are issues with flashing, seams, vents and ridges. Also, completing the drains can be difficult. For these reasons, it is recommended that professionals complete your flat roof and decks.
Cottages and mobile homes also need new roofs and repairs. Often new materials can be applied to your old roof to give it better protection and make it last longer. This image shows a mobile home roof from Martin Grove Village, Waterloo - TPO

| Skylight Repair & Installation
Skylight installation has become a more common practice as a way of providing light to make rooms feel larger and airier. Whether as new construction or retrofitted, the method is basically the same. The hole must be cut and framed, the roof material cut back, the underlayment put down, the bottom and step flashing needs to be installed, and finally, one needs to complete the installation of the solid flashing pieces that ensure no water leaks into the house.
Capping, siding, soffit and eavestrough are very important components of your home. They protect your house from the elements but also add to its appeal. Siding comes in many colours, styles and materials. While the roof is being replaced, it is a good opportunity to upgrade your metalwork. Often overlooked in importance is the gutter system or eavestrough and capping of flat roofs, which protects your home from the effects of water damage.
| Types of Flat Roofs
A flat roof is a less expensive option for residential and commercial buildings. Here are some of the different types of materials and roofing systems that you can choose from:
| Built-up Roof or BUR
| Modified Bitumen
| PVC Membrane
This is composed of tar, gravel, stone and other waterproofing additives. Though it is heavy and expensive to install, it is durable and long-lasting.
Modified bitumen is an alternative to plasticizers and can withstand extreme weather conditions and is easy to repair.
PVC roofing membranes are flame resistant, flexible, lightweight, energy-efficient, and reusable.
Metal flat roofing with aluminum, steel, zinc or copper is available in a variety of colours and finishes. It is versatile, lightweight, chemical-free, and fire-resistant.
| Mastic Asphalt or MA
Mastic asphalt is a moldable composition known for its durability. However, it is difficult to handle and may be complicated and expensive to install.
| Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer or EPDM
A type of rubber material, EPDM is made from recycled strips of rubber that are bound together. This requires professional installation and is water and weather resistant.
This flat roofing system consists of a high-quality resin-type elastic liquid that offers superior waterproofing and protection against wind and physical damage. It is the cheapest option with regard to energy and comes in various colours.
