The Material Used to Make Your Roof in Troy Michigan

Tar and Gravel Flat Roofing System
A tar and gravel roofing system has been in use for many, many decades. Most older commercial buildings will have this type of roofing system installed. A thin layer of tar is applied to the roof and then gravel added to the top of that. The tar is applied while it is hot so that it mops on much like a sealant. Once the tar dries it will become harder and more tougher. Tar and gravel roofs can last a long time but they don’t last as long as other forms of flat roofing systems. The tar will eventually start to dry and crack allowing water to pass through the cracks and onto the roof decking system.
Metal Roofing System for Flat Roofs
Another popular roofing system in use today is metal roofing. Since metal roofing requires very little fall for drainage of the roof it’s used more and more. Metal roofing can also outlast traditional tar and gravel roofs. Many home owners and commercial building owners are transforming their older style roofs into newer metal roofing systems. Troy Roofing Pros can cover your old roof with new metal roofing or we can remove the old roof and substitute it with metal roofing.
Roll Roofing Including Rubber Roofing
Another popular roofing system that is gaining lots of attention lately is roll rubber roofing. Although roll roofing can come in all different kinds of materials including asphalt, rubber roofing is the most common in use today for flat roofing systems. It’s incredibly environmentally friendly and can completely seal your roof quickly. Rubber roofing also lasts for decades so that once installed it will usually last a lifetime.
