A shingled roof is not waterproof; it repels water.
A low slope or flat roof must be waterproof because of the length of time water remains on the roof. The traditional roofing systems for flat roofs have been either B.U.R. (built-up roofing), more commonly known as a tar and gravel roof, or an SBS Modified Bitumen heat welded roofing membrane.
When it comes to residential re-roofing, these roofing systems are expensive and may pose a significant risk of fire. This is why Lansard Bros. Roofing Ltd. offers a risk-free approach with innovative S.A.M. (self-adhesive membrane) or SBS Roofing membranes, and is a certified installer of two of the biggest and oldest roofing membrane manufacturers in the world; IKO and Soprema.
