A+ Roofing offers high quality flat roofing materials such as modified bitumen and single-ply roof systems (TPO/ PVC/ EPDM). These membranes provide a very durable and low maintenance protection for your roof.
Modified bitumen is made of bituminous asphalt with polymers that give it rubber-like characteristics. Modified bitumen comes in either smooth or granular surfaces and can be applied either by torching down (welded) or self-adhered sheets. It comes in two main varieties – APP (short for attactic polypropylene) and SBS (short for styrene-butadiene-styrene). APP provides higher resistance to wear for a longer lasting, water-resistant roof and SBS provides higher flexibility and strength that enhances the flat roof’s performance and longevity. Modified bitumen is an excellent choice for those looking for lasting cost-effective weather-proofing that is backed by warranties of up to 15 years (20 years for select varieties).
TPO (short for thermoplastic polyolefin) systems feature heat-welded seam integrity, energy savings and overall exceptional value. Some of these systems – like GAF’s EverGuard TPO single ply roof membrane – come with a white reflective cover, offering extra protection from ultraviolet light and extra cooling during summer. Over time, TPO systems grown from just a tiny share of the single ply roofing market to become, by some accounts, the number 1-preferred single ply roofing product. Their flexibility for use in virtually any application has also made them the fastest growing single ply roofing system. Some reasons to select single-ply TPO roofing include:
- Low maintenance
- Puncture and leak resistance
- Easy repair after installation
- Grease/oil/chemical resistance
- Resistance to pounding water
- Reflective roofing
TPO systems offer the added eco-benefit of containing post-consumer and post-industrial recycled materials.
As a GAF Master Elite Contractor, A+ Roofing offers GAF’s cutting edge warranty protection for flat roofs – the Diamond Pledge. This NDL (“No Dollar Limit”) System Warranty features 100% coverage for both manufacturing defects and workmanship error. In addition to typical coverage, the Diamond Pledge guarantees protection from leaks coming from metal and flexible wall flashings, blisters in the membrane or problems in the roof insulation (see brochure). The power of this warranty is significant as these types of roofing problems account for up to 40% of roof leaks. Additionally, with the purchase of a maintenance program for regular check up and repair of your roof, GAF offers a 25% extension for your Diamond Pledge. Thus, with a maintenance program, a 20-year guarantee stretches for 25 years free of extra charge.
