5 Good Reasons to Choose an Elastomeric Membrane Coating for Your Flat Roof
Are you looking for a high-quality coating for your flat or flat-pitched roof? At Couvreurs-DM in Montreal (Rosemont, Saint-Léonard, LaSalle, Le Plateau-Mont-Royal, etc.), we provide you with elastomeric membranes! Composed of a base coat and a granulated top coat, it offers a host of advantages that make it an ideal choice. Read on to find out more!
1. It Is Aesthetically Very Appealing
Usually offered in black, white, grey or brown, the elastomeric membrane is lightweight and blends perfectly with all styles of construction. It will also give a refined look to the property's roof.
2. It Is Remarkably Resistant
Quebec's climate is known for its extremes: polar cold in winter, intense heat and high humidity in summer. Exposed to these temperature variations and to various weather conditions, the elastomeric membrane displays amazing resistance, partly due to its elasticity and superior impermeability. The fusion of its two layers makes it possible to perfectly seal the joints and thus obtain an increased impermeability.
3. It Requires Little Maintenance
Annual inspection by professionals and a few minor interventions over time are enough to preserve the elastomeric membrane for many years to come. What more can you ask for?
4. It Is Long-Lasting
Although a bit more expensive to buy than other coatings, the elastomeric membrane is a good long-term investment because it has an average lifespan of 30 years when properly maintained. It also has a warranty of 10 to 15 years, depending on the manufacturer.
5. It Reduces Heat Islands
If you choose a white or light-coloured membrane, it will reflect the sun's rays instead of absorbing them like many other roof coverings. This solution is therefore ideal in urban areas, for instance.
Quality Installation for Proven Durability!
To maximize the life of the elastomeric membrane coating on your flat roof, you should leave the installation to experienced professionals, especially since the use of torches during installation can present a fire hazard. At Couvreurs DM in Montreal, we have required the qualifications and knowledge: whether you are in Saint-Léonard, LaSalle, Le Plateau-Mont-Royal or Rosemont, you can rely on our expertise for a safe installation meeting your expectations.
