Flat Roofing Installation & Repair Services in Toronto

 

As an authority in roofing here in Ontario, Aimed Group strives to provide Torontonians with the highest quality craftsmanship and materials on every project. Our team of experienced professional contractors work closely with homeowners to determine the best shingles for your house. One of the options we offer is flat roofing.

As the name suggests, flat roofing is a unique option in which the roof is built nearly flat. The slight degree of elevation on the roof allows water to drain away evenly during rain and snowfall but provides even terrain for some homeowners to expand the roof into part of their living space.

Current modern homes are being built with flat roofs, and therefore must utilize flat roofing materials.

Flat roofing services require specific knowledge of the materials being used and the housing specifications to support such a roof. Not all Toronto houses can support a flat roof.

The Importance of Drainage on Flat Roofing

Whether your flat roofing is new or old, proper drainage must be installed to minimize the potential for leaks, mould, and erosion. One of the major problems home and business owners face with flat roofing is that once the waterproof membrane is breached, it can go unnoticed for a long time. This allows the elements to damage the area further.

When you have your roof inspected by roof companies, be sure to ask about the current drainage and whether it should be replaced or modified. If you notice any leaks in your home, contact our professional flat roofing service team as soon as possible for repair.

Benefits of a Flat Roof

Flat roofs are typically used in arid locations where rainfall is minimal. However, there has been an increase in flat roofing services by local roof companies in Toronto over the past decade. Ontario homeowners are choosing flat roofs due to benefits such as:

  • Unique Aesthetic – One of the main reasons so many choose flat roofing is its unique aesthetic. Many homes are built with a traditional peaked or sloping roof, and opting for this flat design sets houses apart in the neighbourhood.
  • Additional Living Space – Depending on your roof’s foundation, you may be eligible to use flat roofing as an extension of your living space. Some families choose to put up an enclosure around the roof, utilizing it as a deck or patio feature.
  • No Wind Resistance – Sloped roofs pose an obstacle to wind, which sometimes causes tiles or shingles to bend, lift, or shake loose during storms. Flat roofing does not provide this resistance to wind, allowing it to stand up to bad weather.
  • Durability – Along with wind resistance, the materials used to create flat roofing are also exceptionally durable. As there are not multiple tiles dependent upon the next to protect your home, flat roofing has a decreased likelihood of succumbing to mould, rot, or warping. If properly installed, the waterproof membrane covering a flat roof keeps snow, ice, and rain out of your home.
  • Easy Maintenance – As flat roofing is flat, it does not pose the same risk as a sloped roof to inspect or clean it. This improves maintenance time and costs, as there is a reduced risk of falling from a flat roof.

It’s important to note that flat roofing has a shorter lifespan than some other roofing formats and requires more active inspection and care. Your flat roof has a better chance at long-term survival if it is properly installed by an experienced team of roofers, like our team at Aimed Group. Not all flat roofing services offer the same level of qualification. For our flat roofing projects, Aimed Group only sends contractors who have worked with flat roofing in the past and understands how to ensure it is properly installed and sealed.

Maintaining Your Flat Roofing

Flat roofs require more frequent maintenance than sloped roofs, as there is no slope for debris to fall off. This means any nearby trees could shake loose leaves, twigs, and even insects onto your flat roofing. To get the most out of your roof, have it inspected twice a year and look for signs such as:

  • Exposed nails
  • Membrane tears
  • Vent damage
  • Broken shingles
  • Loss of granule
  • Cracks in roof or chimney
  • Pooling of water
  • Damaged metal flashing
  • Fallen debris
  • Holes or leaks

Contacting an experienced flat roofing repair service in Toronto is the best way to ensure that these issues are dealt with quickly and efficiently.
