Residential Flat Roofing

Despite their name, flat roofs actually have a rather low slope or pitch. They do have some home appeal even if they are more usually found on substantial business constructions. Insured Roofs’ services offers a minimum 10-year guarantee on all flat/low slope roofing solutions.

Pros Of
Residential Flat Roofing:

  • From an aesthetic perspective, a house with unequal roof pitches could be unattractive.
  • Convenience: Installing a HVAC unit on top of a commercial building is easier than doing it in a congested area.
  • Can offer a second "living level" that can be used in a garden or for entertainment.

Cons Of
Residential Flat Roofing:

  • Less leak-resistant.
  • Snow and standing water prone.
  • More difficult to insulate.

3 Main Materials Used To
Make Membrane Flat Roof Systems:

  • Ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber is the least expensive option, although it has a tendency to absorb heat.
  • More resilient than ethylene propylene diene monomer and the most energy-efficient material is thermoplastic polyolefin/heat welded vinyl (available in white and grey).
  • Ethylene propylene diene monomer and thermoplastic polyolefin are less resilient to collisions and damage from sharp objects than multi-ply laminated modified asphalt. It is less energy-efficient than thermoplastic polyolefin and more challenging to install than its single-ply brothers.

What Our

Our Work​


Not at all, no. Organic shingles, which are formed from waste paper that has been drenched in asphalt, are more fire-resistant than fibreglass shingles but less durable (made with a base layer of glass fibre reinforcing mat). Nowadays, fibreglass shingles are increasingly prevalent and provide far greater fire protection, albeit they are still not entirely fire-proof.

We can definitely get you organic shingles if you decide you want them. However, despite their name, they are actually less environmentally friendly than fiberglass shingles, because they require high asphalt (oil based) content to be waterproof. The term “organic” is simply used to imply that they have a base of natural materials (in this case, paper).
