The Marvels of The Modern Flat Roof System
When it comes to modern home design, one standout feature that captures attention and admiration is a flat roof. At Point Gardens, we take pride in offering homes that embrace innovation and sustainability, and our flat roof system that's part of our Modern home is a testament to this commitment.
Let's delve into the unique characteristics that make our flat roof design a popular choice in contemporary living.
EPDM: The Foundation of Durability and Eco-Friendliness
Our modern flat roofs are equipped with high-performance membranes, with EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) taking center stage. Comprising rubber materials, EPDM is not only environmentally friendly but also remarkably durable in the face of harsh weather conditions. This roofing material has proven itself to be waterproof, fire-resistant, and wind-resistant, ensuring the longevity and resilience of your home's structure.
Sustainability That Stands the Test of Time
EPDM roofing is a wise investment that pays dividends in the long run. With a lifespan of up to 30 years, you can rest easy knowing that your flat roof can weather storms, temperature fluctuations, and heavy rainfall without compromising its integrity. This longevity eliminates the worry associated with frequent roof maintenance and replacements.
Leaks? Not in Our Vocabulary
EPDM roofing significantly reduces the risk of leaks, provided no surface damage occurs. The robust nature of this material creates a sealed system that acts as a reliable barrier against water infiltration. Say goodbye to the anxiety of water damage after a storm – our flat roof has got you covered.
Energy Efficiency Beyond Expectations
Our flat roof design goes beyond the aesthetics; it's a strategic move for energy efficiency. EPDM roofing has the remarkable ability to retain heat, contributing to lower heating bills. The sealed system, with insulation on top of the roof deck and a solid core of insulation beneath it down to the drywall, ensures that your home remains comfortably warm without unnecessary energy loss.
No Penetrations, No Compromises
Unlike traditional roofs, our flat roof system is free from penetrations for mechanicals or ventilation needs. This design choice not only enhances the sleek and modern aesthetic but also contributes to the structural integrity of the roof. With no openings through the roof deck, you can enjoy the benefits of a fully contained and sealed roofing system.
Engineered for Excellence
The pitch of our flat roof is nominal, approximately a 1/12 pitch. The house pitches to the side opposite the garage, and the garage pitches to the back. This design, coupled with a roof structure engineered for snow loads typically seen in our area, ensures resilience against the worst-case scenarios. Your home is not just modern; it's meticulously engineered for durability and safety.
The Endorsement of Focus on Energy
In a significant endorsement, Focus on Energy has attested that our Modern model, featuring the flat roof system, outperforms other models tested to date. The lack of heat loss through the roof deck is a remarkable achievement, showcasing the efficiency and innovation embedded in our modern flat roof design.
Welcome to a home where innovation meets comfort, and where the future is not just embraced but built upon. At Point Gardens, we're redefining modern living, one flat roof at a time.
