There are many different types of roofing systems but all are either classified as Steep-Slope or Low-Slope (flat roofing). Below are the basic different roofing types you may encounter, all of which C3 Group Adjusters are experienced in assessing when they are damaged.
Single-ply roofing systems are made from a single layer of waterproofing membrane that is installed on top of the roof insulation and/or cover board. Innovations in the manufacturing process has made single-ply roofing systems that are lightweight, durable, and easy to install.
Single Ply Roofing System types:
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) – EPDM roofing is an Elastomeric synthetic rubber roof that is resistant to hail impact and has high UV resistance.
TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) – A flexible and reflective thermoplastic roofing system.
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) – A fire-resistant and waterproof thermoplastic roof system.
Built-Up Roofing systems are one of the oldest flat roofing types. A BUR system is sometimes referred to as a “tar and gravel” system. These roofs are composed of alternating layers of reinforcing fabric and bitumen (asphalt) and is finished with a UV-protectant such as gravel aggregate or fluid applied coating.
Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems (ModBit) is made up of a single layer of Bitumen (asphalt) that is “modified” with other materials.
There are two types of ModBit roofing systems:
Tile roofs are energy-efficient and durable systems that have a long life expectancy. Tile roof systems have been known to withstand fire and hail, however, one of the most unique qualities of a tile roof is that they are made from sustainable earth materials instead of synthetic materials
metal roof tiles or metal shingles in addition to certified metal roof restoration.
