Rubber Roofs

Rubber roofing is made of rubber, plastic polymers, or a combination of the two.

Traditional roofing typically lasts about fifteen or twenty years. During that time, your roofing will need to be maintained and repaired to keep it fully functional. Protecting your home is your roof’s biggest job. Another alternative to traditional roofing materials is rubber roofing. A rubber roofing system can last thirty to fifty years and require little maintenance or repairs. It is known to be much more durable than a traditional roof.  Extreme weather conditions in the Texas Panhandle are less likely to cause cracks in a rubber roof. Homes or offices with low-pitch or flat roofs can be better protected by rubber roofs. Accent Roofing of Amarillo has the experience you need to install rubber roofing. Their professional staff can answer your questions and get you under the best roof possible. 

Rubber roofing is made of rubber, plastic polymers, or a combination of the two. Eco-friendly materials such as recycled tires, sawdust, and slate dust are used. Often, rubber roofing is installed to reduce leaking and create better sealing. Flat roofing does not allow water to run off quickly. The water can blow under the roofing material if it is not well sealed. This can cause damage to your home or office that may go unnoticed for some time. Installing rubber roofing instead offers a strong, waterproof, and pliant roofing system that is much more flexible than traditional asphalt roofing. The initial cost of rubber roofing is offset by the life of the roofing and its energy efficiency. 

At Accent Roofing of Amarillo, we can help you understand the benefits of a variety of roofing systems. Rubber roofing is cheaper than slate but offers the same fire resistance. It is also extremely durable, weather resistant, and waterproof. These are key features when considering roofing options in West Texas. Rubber roofing is resistant to thermal shock. Proper installation will ensure that the roofing will not crack or become brittle due to hot and cold temperature fluctuations. Another benefit is its resistance to hail, ultraviolet radiation, and other extreme weather conditions. 
Rubber roofing should last a very long time. Little maintenance and upkeep are needed. It is important to do regular checks of your roofing system to ensure potential problems are caught and dealt with in a timely manner. Should your rubber roof need repairs, they are fairly simple. Accent Roofing can assess your roof quickly and recommend appropriate repairs. They will work with you to be sure everything is perfect and you are satisfied.

Installing a rubber roofing system for your home is an easier and quicker process than installing traditional roofing. It can be installed using a seamless roll. Applying it in this manner is very cost effective and energy efficient. It also makes leaking and cracking less likely as water will not have room to flow underneath. Most often, your roof will be stripped to the plywood base and the rubber roofing applied on top. Dirt and debris is swept away, adhesive is applied, and the roll is placed across the roof. Bubbles are smoothed out to eliminate leaks. Rubber roofing can be placed on top of old shingles with a layer of foam insulation between. This can cause issues with the warranty. 

Rubber roofing could be the best option for your home or office. The professionals with Accent Roofing of Amarillo can work with you to research and install the best roof to protect your home and everything under your roof.
