Standing seam metal or membrane for 1.4/12 pitch shed roof?


Every roofer I talk to locally for bids, suggegts a membrane roof. So it looks like that is the answer, and we may reduce the pitch to about a 1/12.

I was told by one roofer that a Bitumen 2 ply roof is the best product, this is a comany who als installs the Sarnafil brand roof.

It's hard to know who to trust, since they obviously have the job of selling their product.

What is the best membrane roof one can have installed?

Thanks

A two ply modified bitumen roof is a good spec also, but does not offer the reflective and easy repair characteristics as a heat welable single ply system such as Duro-Last or or Ib Roof Systems does.

Since that company offers both types of products, have then show you why they prefer the one system over the other and DEFINITELY go to and check out similar jobs such as yours that they have already completed and talk to those previous customers.

Sarnifil is without a doubt the best. It is also a clean roof unlike bitumen and will last at least three times longer.

I have never personally worked with Sarnafil, but I have heard nothing but good reviews about the product and the type and quality of contractors they allow to be their certified installers. So, based on that information, I would defer to Jims better understanding of that product and at least say it would fall in the same quality of category as Duro-Last and IB Roof Systems.

Hello,

The company that I work for used Sarnafil to line several pools in Barrow, Alaska. I personally have not used it , but it stands to reason if it holds water in then it should hold the water out.

That is exactly what the founder of Duro-Last felt back in the1970's. He ran a company called Tri-City vinyl, which manufactured swimming pool liners.

Interesting biography about the man can be found on Google, by typing in John Burt, and then clicking on the link from Tri-City Vinyl at the top of the 1st search page.

I just happened to look it up yesterday. What a coincidence, huh?
