Being recognized as the best, the elastomeric membrane is an excellent choice for your roof. At Roof Star, we are your expert for your flat roof.

In Quebec, the most used membrane for residential, commercial, and industrial roofs, flat roofs with a small difference in elevation, is the elastomeric bitumen membrane (elastomeric membrane roof) arranged in two thicknesses. Theoretically, the latter has been developed to reduce the degree of maintenance and ensure a better seal. These elastomeric membranes (elastomeric membrane roofing) also preserve your sun cover, extending its durability. In Montreal, several boroughs require the installation of white roofs to counter the effects of the urban heat island. The white elastomeric membrane lends itself perfectly to this requirement.

The cost of an elastomeric membrane roof is about 10% more expensive than an asphalt and gravel membrane but given its much longer life, the elastomeric membrane is a better investment.

The benefits of an elastomeric membrane roof

  • It offers a life span of 15 to 25 years - specialists even agree that a membrane properly installed by a professional roofer on a ventilated roof can last up to 30 years!
  • It can be installed regardless of the outside temperature.
  • It is very weather resistant.
  • It requires very little maintenance.
  • It is waterproof and durable.
  • It benefits from a guarantee of the manufacturer varying between 5 and 20 years.

Technical characteristics

The elastomeric membrane roof is composed of a base membrane and a finishing membrane heated by torch to unify them. The upper membrane is coated with ceramic granules that give it its color (brown, black gray, red, green or white) and protect it from sunlight. The risk of fire is real during the hours following the installation of an elastomeric membrane roof.

It is therefore a priority for the membrane to be installed by a roofer recognized as an elastomeric membrane roof. Roof Star holds liability insurance for potential accidents or contingencies as a security measure, and we are recognized by SOPREMA Inc. as a qualified contractor for the application of their membranes, demonstrating our ability to deliver your elastomeric membrane roof project in the best conditions!
