Inspecting Essentials

"The flatter the roof is, the more problems there are" is an old axiom in the roofing business.  Flat roofs are different.  They are made from a host of materials, and those materials are changing every day. The presentation covers several commercial products such as EPDM roofing and TPO and "peel and stick membranes."  This session provides a thorough discussion of flat roofing, from old pitch roofs to some of the newest membrane materials being used today.
