Rubber roofing is one of the most popular roofing options in Toronto, and this popularity is well deserved. This type of roof is highly efficient and offers many benefits, one of which is a very affordable price. A few decades ago, this option was mostly used for commercial buildings, but the modernistic architects of today afforded this material the appreciation it deserves. Therefore, now you can see some of the luxurious new homes protected with one of the numerous rolled rubber roofing options available.
If you want to install this type of roof on your own house or industrial building, we at Royal Roofing Inc. will be happy to help and provide you with the highest level of service.
Benefits of Rolled Rubber Roofing

If you take into account the fact that your long-term costs (maintenance and repair) with this material will be low, you will see that a rubber roof may be the cheapest option available. However, its low price doesn't equal poor quality. If installed and maintained properly, it will provide the building with the highest degree or protection.

- It's eco-friendly.
Rubber roofing rolls are made from recycled materials, so you help the planet by choosing this option. When the material reaches the end of its life, it can be removed and recycled again. This makes rubber roofs one of the most environmentally friendly roofing solutions that exist today.
- It's durable.
The vast majority of rolled rubber roofing manufacturers offer a 30-year warranty for their products. Please note that this warranty will be valid only if the system is installed by certified professionals. At Royal Roofing Inc. we carry all the legal documents and certificates necessary to prove our technicians skills, so there will be no problems with the material's warranty.
Damaging a high-quality rubber roofing isn't easy, even if it's installed at a commercial building with heavy roof traffic. The design of this roof makes it almost completely impervious to weather damage and you can treat it with specialized sealants to increase its level of water and scratch resistance. All rubber roofs are fire-resistant by default.
- It's easy to maintain.
The reason why roll rubber roofing is such a hit with commercial properties is that it doesn't require much additional investment in maintenance, even if the roof is regularly used as a rest or storage area. A simple annual inspection and coating every few years is all the care this system needs.
Roll Rubber Roofing: Types
Rubber roofing systems differ based on materials and application procedures. Roll rubber roofing materials most popular in Toronto are:
- EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer).
This is the most popular solution for commercial buildings because it's very affordable, durable, and resistant to damage.
- Modified bitumen.
This material is even more durable and a great choice for decks and industrial roofs with heavy traffic.
Based on the application procedure there are the following types of rubber roofing:
Best for contoured roofs due to the system's flexibility.
A very strong and reliable system.
An extremely durable but heavier system.
Take your time to look into all roll rubber roofing options available today and choose carefully. This system can serve you well for decades, and you can make it look like new by applying a coating once every couple of years.
This solution is a great option for Toronto, in particular, because it's highly resistant to the damage from the elements and can be easily restored to its original beauty and strength.
