Materials

Most of the leaks requiring repairs are those installed with Flat Roof Leaking Dumfries VA 22026 a single ply rubber membrane called EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer).  This type of roofing material has replaced the earlier style of flat roofing which was made up of a base sheet and multiple layers of felt paper and hot asphalt or coal tar.  Usually this was covered with gravel to give it increased life.  This type of flat roofing is called BUR (built up roofing).   In most cases this type of roofing although using Dumfries VA 22026 less high tech materials out lasts the EPDM roofing in residential applications due to the inconsistency in installation procedures.
