What Exactly is an IB Roof?
An IB Roof is made from a single-ply reinforced membrane. Originally from Europe, the design was created in the Post-war era. The engineers had to come up with a roof that would need little to no maintenance while minimizing the amount of energy used to create it. They also wanted to create a roof that would last for many years.
Here at Western Roofing Systems, we have taken the design and used it to ensure that it offers you everything you need and more. We offer our IB roofing to both the commercial and residential sectors. Consisting of a unique design, the IB roof works to resist harmful UV rays, in addition to any substances and chemicals that are typically found on flat roofs. This means our IB roof is less likely to degrade or leak.
Our Installation Method
When we install your new IB flat roof we do so while ensuring we only ever use the highest-quality materials. We do this because we know you only ever want a roof that is of a high standard.
- Seams and Flashing
Every seam and piece of flashing is hot air welded. This ensures that the bond between the 2 sheets of roofing membrane is physically bonded. We do not use chemical bonding as the seams can come apart. The quality of your roof is, therefore, affected, ensuring you only ever have a high-quality roof that will not come apart.
- Residential Properties
We can add a flat roof to your home, your garage, or even a flat roof deck. We can also install the IB flat roof as a membrane under a solid deck which will help to keep the deck free from water.
IB flat roofing was originally designed for use on commercial properties. However, it was soon clear that residential properties could also benefit.
- Commercial Properties
We can add an IB flat roof to the following buildings and sites:
- Auto repair stations
- Gas stations
- Manufacturing facilities
- Office buildings
- Residential buildings
- Shopping malls
- Storage facilities
- Warehouse facilities
The Benefits of an IB Flat Roof
An IB flat roof comes with many benefits that may not always be obvious. These benefits include:
- Free from leaks
IB flat roofs do now leak, which means you can rely on them to stand up to the rain and the snow.
- Free from ponding water
Ponding water is water that has accumulated on your roof. Standing water such as this can leak into your home or premises. When the water has entered a building it can cause electrical damage while damaging drywall, ceilings, and structural components. The cost of the repair can be more than the cost of the IB flat roof.
- Lasts a long time
IB flat roofs are built to last a long time. The engineers in Europe were convinced that they could come up with a roof that lasts many years. While there may have been a few changes to the original design IB flat roofs still last for years. In fact, some flat roofs come with warranties of up to 25 years, this is how good they are.
- Very energy efficient
While energy costs seem to keep rising, you can be sure that your new IB flat roof will be very efficient. This is because it comes with a white membrane that can reflect almost 90% of solar heat. This means that your AC system may not have to run quite as much as it used to. In fact, roofing such as this can save you approximately 20% on your air conditioning costs.
