Another great low slope roofing material is built up roofing (BUR). This material is made specifically for flat roof applications and provides excellent leak protection. BUR is composed of several layers of fibrous materials that have been treated with bitumen and finished with a glaze that provides superior leak protection. It is a bit more durable than EPDM roofing but is also more costly. However, the warranties for BUR roofing are generally longer.
Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing systems have become more popular recently due to their exceptional ultraviolet and weather resistant qualities. They are excellent in flat roof applications and are easier and less messy to install. In addition, TPO offers superior energy efficiency. It is also an economical option.
Modified bitumen roofs are another excellent roofing choice for low or no slope roofs. While very similar in composition to BUR roofing material, there are some differences. BUR is predominantly made of asphalt whereas modbit roofs have the addition of a polymer, which allows for greater elasticity. They can be applied using cold methods, which is generally less disruptive to business operations and offers reduced chemical emissions.

Common question asked to roofers: What is membrane roofing?
Membrane roofing is the type most commonly used in low or no slope applications. They come in a huge variety of materials but are constantly evolving in order to provide superior weather protection, greater protection from water damage and to have less of an impact on the environment. Many of the newer membrane roofing products, like TPO roofing, are designed to last for a very long time and thus are warrantied for longer time frames than more traditional membrane roofing.

Roofers term of the day courtesy of All Around Roofing, Denver: Implied warranty
An implied or implicit warranty is a legal term that refers to presumptions that a consumer can safely make about the products, in this case roofing materials, that they purchase. The extent of implied protection varies between products and from one legal jurisdiction to the next.
Denver expert roofers from All Around Roofing answer a question:
Is a roof warranty transferrable?
Whether a warranty is transferrable depends on many factors, including the manufacturer and the state in which the material was sold, so read the fine print. Basic warranties often do transfer from one homeowner to the next without having to do anything. Extended warranties often don't transfer or require submitting a transfer application along with a transfer fee.
A roof is a substantial investment, and warranties are intended to protect the consumer. When purchasing a new roof, homeowners have to contend with many warranty options defined in unclear language. It can be difficult to understand the extent of the protection and the exceptions that void it.
The guarantees provided by many Denver roofing companies are different from manufacturer warranties. Workmanship guarantees are how a company stands behind its work in a legal sense, and these protections are meant to safeguard the homeowner against installation errors and shoddy workmanship rather than material defects. These types of guarantees are quite valuable, and homeowners should therefore choose a contractor they can trust. If the contractor goes out of business, then the workmanship guarantees become void.
The two most essential warranties that cover roofing materials are the implied warranty and the basic warranty. The implied warranty is the protection provided to the consumer by law. The basic warranty, or manufacturer warranty, is the protection that a manufacturer provides to a consumer in order to make its product less of a risk and more appealing overall. Basic warranties will usually include any implicit warranties, which are a standard legal practice in the creation of contracts.
The roofers from All Around Roofing of Denver can answer any questions you have about flat roof systems or metal roofing.
Basic warranties essentially exist to protect a customer from manufacturer defects. If shingles deform due to shingle splices or any other defects in the manufacturing process, then a basic warranty would cover this issue. Most of the problems that homeowners experience with their roofs, however, aren't due to manufacturer defects. A manufacturer may provide a 20 year basic warranty, but that doesn't mean that it covers a general lack of maintenance or any wear and tear that occurs after the 10 year mark.
An extended warranty extends protection both in scope and length. Some extended warranties simply extend the basic protection out to the marketed lifespan of the material. Other extended warranties actually cover wear and tear, and some extend to protection normally associated with other domains, such as storm damage or installation errors. Such warranties are usually not provided free of charge, and homeowners must balance the upfront cost against the long term risk.
Homeowners planning to sell their home within a warranty period should consider transferability. Many warranties don't transfer from the original homeowner to a new homeowner. Such transfer may not be available, and when they are, they may require a transfer process and fee. When hiring a roofing company, be sure to ask if the guarantees extend to the person who purchases the home
