When installing new roofing, one of the first decisions that you’ll have to make is which material you use. With so many materials out there, how do you decide? One option that may fly under the radar is rubber roofing. It’s less common but has its benefits that will give you the quality roofing you seek. From Sargeant’s Roofing in Edmonton, here are some benefits of rubber roofing materials.
What is rubber roofing?
Rubber roofing materials are made of rubber or plastic polymers. They can be made from recycled materials, such as tires, making them eco-friendly. Using this material will allow you to reduce your environmental footprint, and at a cost that might surprise you. Rubber shingles are typically cheaper than asphalt or other types of shingles and yield similar results. It’s cost-effective and energy-efficient; why not go with the cheaper, environmentally friendly option?
Rubber roofing is an incredibly durable option. It’s waterproof and weather-resistant, making it long-lasting. Based on the way that it’s built, it is less likely to produce cracks over time. There are no seams for the water to travel through. As well, using rubber roofing can benefit the interior of your home. It’s made to reflect off unwanted water and debris, but also can reflect heat away. This way, your home, as well as the material, won’t overheat during those warmer climates.
When it comes to the installation process of rubber roofing, it’s rather simple compared to other materials. Rubber is a lighter material than asphalt, so they are a lot easier to place. Some parts of the installation are similar, such as having to strip down the roof to its plywood base and cleaning away the dirt and debris accumulated from your previous roof. However, on some occasions, rubber roofing can be placed on top of the old roofing materials. It could add as a second layer of protection and would take less time and money to get the job done.
