If you’re a homeowner with a low-slope roof, you’re probably well aware that your options for roofing systems do not include the most common type of material: asphalt composition shingles. Instead, your roof needs a waterproofing membrane like the single-ply options — TPO, PVC, EPDM — and the multi-ply option: torchdown modified bitumen.
These membranes are needed for low-slope residential roofs because asphalt shingles have overlapping seams that are not perfectly sealed, which exposes them to moisture seeping beneath them by entering upwards from their lower edge. Waterproof roofing membranes don’t have this issue because their seams are welded, forming them into one cohesive unit.
Each of the different types of low-slope membranes serve different purposes for homeowners, and we believe the best one for the majority of low-slope homes is GAF’s EverGuard TPO 60-mil membrane. It is one of the most cost-effective roofing membranes in the industry.
GAF has dedicated a tremendous amount of their resources to advancing TPO technology, and the result is a product with fantastic longevity that saves on material and labor. When GAF conducted the largest independent study to date on TPO, among its key findings was that EverGuard Extreme® TPO and EverGuard® TPO are the top performers regarding longevity.
Furthermore, GAF offers the best warranties we know of. As Master contractors on the low-slope side of GAF, the company trusts our craftsmanship and attention to detail so much that they allow us to provide our customers with the Diamond Pledge™ NDL Roof Guarantee. With the 60-mil system, this warranty provides no dollar limit (NDL) coverage of material and workmanship for 20 years.
