Flat Roofs in Tucson and the Surrounding Areas

The term “flat roof” is somewhat of a misnomer, as they aren’t completely flat. All roofs need a slight slope to drain water. Flat roofs typically feature a low slope of one-fourth to one-half inch per foot. Commercial buildings commonly feature flat roofs, although some residential homes do as well. At Blue Mountain Roofing, our experienced team works on all types of flat roofs in the greater Tucson area. We specialize in the repair and replacement of rubberized roofing systems, spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing, and elastomeric roof coatings.

Rubberized Roofing Systems

Rubberized roofing systems are a type of membrane roofing, also known as a single-ply membrane. Rubber roofing consists of ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM). This is a synthetic rubber material that provides a waterproof barrier on top of the insulation boards installed on the roof. After installing the EPDM, our roofers seal the seams to prevent water leaks. Blue Mountain Roofing often recommends the EPDM system for flat roofs because it offers the following qualities:

Affordable:

EPDM is the flat roofing material of choice for many residential and commercial clients because it’s available at a relatively low price point compared to other roofing systems.

Eco-friendly:

EPDM is often manufactured from recycled materials. At the end of its lifespan, it is 100% recyclable.

Lightweight:

Because the rubber sheets are so lightweight, the roof won’t require any added reinforcement.

Energy-efficient:

Most EPDM roofs are black. However, in hot climates, we recommend white EPDM sheets that reflect the sunlight and help keep the building cool.

Fire-resistant:

It’s nearly impossible to ignite an EPDM membrane, and in fact, they can help inhibit the progression of a building fire.
In addition, EPDM is long-lasting. Most EPDM roofs will last about 20 to 35 years, although some repairs may be necessary from time to time. Our roofing company in Tucson provides prompt and affordable EPDM roof repairs.

Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Roofing

Despite the name, spray polyurethane foam is actually applied as a liquid. It then expands into a protective foam. One of the reasons why Blue Mountain Roofing often recommends SPF is that it’s easily applied to all shapes of roofs, including those with irregular features that pose a risk of water leaks. The SPF material readily adheres to these irregular features, effectively preventing water damage to the building. Note that SPF cannot form a complete roof by itself; it must be applied to an existing roof. We recommend SPF for the following reasons:
  • Longevity : An SPF coating will protect your existing roof and may allow it to last for up to 50 years.
  • Versatility : We can apply spray polyurethane foam to all types of roofing materials, including shingles, metal, and concrete tiles.
  • Energy efficiency : SPF will help your building stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Elastomeric Roof Coatings

To give your building extra protection from the elements, Blue Mountain Roofing recommends installing an elastomeric roof coating. This coating is applied as a liquid, much like paint, providing a seamless layer on top of an existing roof. Its main purpose is to protect buildings from roof leaks and, subsequently, water damage. However, an elastomeric roof coating will also add extra protection from strong winds and UV rays. The average lifespan of elastomeric coatings is 10 to 20 years. Blue Mountain Roofing specializes in commercial and residential flat roofing systems. Our experienced roofers provide both repairs and full roof replacements , with free estimates available.

What people say

Quality work! The only problem we had was that the rain caused delays. But it got done and they stand behind their work. I had a flat roof over a pantry area and it dipped so water puddled and leaked inside. Now, it has been rebuilt and has new roof material, and no dips.
After our roof was damaged by hail, Blue Mountain was able to file the insurance claim with me, walking through all the steps. My roof is 63 years old and had never been stripped back to the wood; it required extensive renovation. Hernan's work crew made sure to keep me updated and always got my okay before each step. They were able to make all the repairs needed to the underlying structure as well as apply a new rubber roof. The roof is now as good or better than the day it was built! It also looks fantastic! They do great work; I can't recommend them enough.
We have a flat roof that required repair and resealing. The price was fair, the warranty excellent, and they were very good about communicating. The crews were efficient and explained everything when I had questions. Highly recommend.
I worked with Mark Evanoff at BMR on a replacement roof for my 1995 tile roof house in Silverado Hills. They were prompt, professional, worked hard and delivered a good final product. I recommend them.
We had Blue Mountain Roofing Inspect quote and perform our roof replacement. From the first call to the last call they responded quickly. Our contact person was Joey Gonzalez. Completely professional, personable and honest. The crew that came out and did the work worked hard and did a fantastic job.All the people I dealt with were absolutely great. Clean up was stellular.I was very impressed from beginning to end. I highly recommend this company.
I have a 60 year old house which was in need of a new roof. From the evaluation through the completion of the job I am completely satisfied. The job foreman kept me updated with the progress with photos and an actual view. The team worked well together like an precision timepiece.
