Types of Flat Roof Repairs
Tar and Gravel
Metro Roofing installs durable tar and gravel flat roofs. Also known as 4-Ply Hot-Tar Systems or Built-Up Roofs, this flat roofing system is ideal for large commercial or industrial properties. These systems prolong your roof's life and prevent you from having to spend on repairs and replacements in the future. Tar and gravel roofs are built-up or manufactured on-site, hence the term" built-up roofing." These roofs get installed by applying four layers of building paper on top of one another. Tar and gravel make for a sturdy and long-lasting system.
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer Rubber) is a synthetic rubber that we use for our applications. This membrane helps to seal and waterproof your roofing system. We install, repair and replace the EPDM membrane for both commercial and residential flat roofing systems. EPDM membrane is a durable material that acts as an electrical insulator. It is resistant to extreme weather conditions, heat, and ozone steam, making it a quality, protective choice for your flat roof.
At Metro Roofing, we know that a leak can hinder your home or industrial manufacturing business. We offer rubber and plastic sealing treatments. Our roofing contractors offer emergency repair with our plastic or rubbing sealing treatments. Rubber and plastic sealants are an effective way to seal and waterproof your roof, repair any leaks, or patch any holes.

Flat Roofing Frequently Asked Questions
What is a flat roof?
As its name suggests, a flat roof is a roofing system that is flat, and without any slopes. These roofs are commonly used for large commercial properties as they are durable, cost-effective, and help to save space to make room for equipment and other business needs.
Conversely, there are also advantages of installing a flat roof for your modern home. They boast a sleek aesthetic and offer space-saving abilities. When used for a home, flat roofing systems act as a statement. In some cases, with the right foundation and access, homeowners can even use their flat roof as a rooftop terrace or garden depending on a homeowner’s preferences and lifestyle.
What is the best material for a flat roof?
The best material for your flat roof depends on various factors (your budget, square footage, timeline, etc.). Generally speaking, it will be durable and long-lasting to maintain the structural integrity of your system.
Work with Metro Roofing to identify the best material for your roof. We work with you to determine what will best suit your home or business.
How long do flat roofs last?
Flat roofs are known for being one of the longest-lasting roofing systems as they are typically made of and treated with durable materials that are resistant to environmental factors. They are typically sealed and waterproofed to reduce the chances of leaking or any other damage.
Flat roofs can last anywhere between 10 to 20 years, but the lifespan of your roof will ultimately be determined by how well you maintain it and the way it was installed. It’s imperative to get your system installed by a professional flat roofing company like Metro Roofing that is experienced and utilizes high-quality materials.
How to install a flat roof
If you require flat roof installation, be sure to enlist the help of a professional flat roofing contractor — this is not a DIY project.
A professional will install your roof correctly, and ensure it is sealed and not susceptible to leaks, cracks, or environmental damage. Installation requires the use of professional materials to adequately seal the roof and safety gear to operate on top of the system.
What is a roof membrane?
A roof membrane is a flat roofing system that creates a watertight seal over the surface. It protects a structure from moisture and other environmental factors. This type of system is often made from modified bitumen, synthetic rubber, or thermoplastic.
