Flat roofing is a common component of commercial buildings. There are many materials to choose from when installing or replacing a commercial roof, including metal, bitumen, and rubber. Rubber roofing offers many advantages in terms of longevity, durability, and eco-friendliness—keep reading to learn more about why rubber roofing may be the perfect solution for your flat roof in Tucson.
Choosing eco-friendly roofing means selecting a roofing material that minimizes the environmental impact of installing a roof on your building. Rubber roofing is made from a combination of recycled tires, slate dust, and sawdust, which reduces the amount of new materials that must be manufactured to create new rubber roofing rolls. Additionally, rubber roofing is durable and typically lasts 30-50 years with proper care, meaning you will get decades of use from the same roofing material, reducing the overall waste associated with your roof as well.
Easy to Maintain
Rubber roofing is extremely easy to maintain, often requiring only regular inspections to check for damage that may need attention. Furthermore, rubber roofing is extremely easy to repair, meaning any roofing repairs you do need will be fast, easy, and low-cost. Most cracks or leaks simply require re-sealing with tape or a liquid sealant, rather than replacing the affected part of your roof. Larger issues may require patching, but this is a simple process that can be completed quickly to restore your roof’s integrity.
One of the other major benefits of flat rubber roofing is its ease of installation. Whether you are constructing a new building or retrofitting the roof on an older one, rubber roofing is one of the simplest roofing systems to install, reducing the amount of time required for roof installation, as well as the cost of labor for your new roof.
