In the early fall of 2012, Cool Flat Roof installed an IB PVC roof with tapered insulation and new gutters on a beautiful contemporary new construction house in Weston, Massachusetts.
Initially, the homeowner contacted us, looking for a “rubber roof”, and I immediately explained that we do not install EPDM rubber, because it does not meet our quality standards (more on why we don’t install rubber roofs here and here).
Instead, I suggested our IB PVC flat roofing systems, with Lifetime Warranty, and hot air welded seams, that will never come apart. After receiving аn estimate from us and several other roofing companies, they chose us to install a more expensive, but a much more durable and long lasting IB roof.
Total roof size was approximately 3500 sq. ft. installed on two levels – the main upper roof, and a lower garage roof, connected to the back porch. The roof was to be installed over unprotected roofing substrate (plywood), and we had to start the roof and get it watertight fast, in lieu of prolonged, massive rains. We installed all roofing materials and welded all seams and flashing in 2 days, to protect the substrate and inside of the house from being damaged by rain water. The roof was priced based on our Flat Roofing Calculator, so there were no last minute surprises about the cost of this project.
