Border Roofing performs commercial and industrial roofing services in Central Alberta for schools, government buildings, institutions, businesses and more. Specializing in torch-on and built-up roofing, we are certified modified bitumen applicators. Here is a description of the roofing we specialize in.
Torch-On (SBS) Roofing
Torch-on roofing is made up of fibreglass and polyester with bitumen. It is a 2-ply system. The first ply is set in tar or mechanically fastened. The second ply (Cap Sheet) is torch applied. This type of roofing has great expansion and contraction capabilities. With a life expectancy of 30 plus years this is a great long lasting roofing system. With all of the benefits it’s easy to see why this is our most popular roofing system. This roofing system carries a 10-year warranty.
Conventional (Tar & Gravel)
This type of flat roofing is 4 plies of felt set in hot asphalt then coated with asphalt and graveled. This system has a life expectancy of 20 to 25 years. It is more reasonably priced and carries a 5-year warranty.
We use styrofoam or polyiso insulation to increase the R factor and sloped insulation to ensure proper drainage.
We supply and install custom flashings that are fabricated in our shop.
