If nothing else, a roof ought to be waterproof. The words even rhyme. However, it can be hard to waterproof a canopy with traditional materials like shingles and wood. In recent years, as materials science has made relentless strides, a wide range of waterproofing and insulation products have become available.

These products are engineered to fulfill several important requirements at once. In today's highly regulated and competitive construction environment, it won't do to have a roof that simply keeps out water, but doesn't last very long or leaches dangerous chemicals. (The Leed Industries blog is planned to explore the latest and most high performing roofing materials on the market).

The heart of a good waterproofing system is a resistant membrane that will resist rainfall and moisture, and help drain water efficiently towards the gutter without pooling. Membranes can be hot-applied or cold-applied, and consist of such materials as rubberized asphalt, self-adhesive bitumen, EPDM, PVC, or multiple layer built up bituminous roof systems. Experienced companies such as Leed Industries residential contractors will, before starting work, consult you on the type of membrane your roof requires for maximum longevity and performance.

A membrane is just one part of the roof; in order to protect it, it needs to be encased in several layers of roofing material, which can be anything from shingles to engineered materials to asphalt or gravel. With residential roofs, there may be numerous architectural elements such as dormers and gables that need to be worked around, in order to avoid any gaps or leaks. It's important to contract a company that knows what it's doing, since once a membrane has been installed, it's fairly difficult to repair. With Port Chester Roofing Contractor Leed Industries, you will be safe in knowing that your roof is done right the first time.
