Flat Roof Service in Phoenix, AZ

These types of roofs have special requirements. Unlike steep-sloped roofs, which rely on gravity to shed water, flat roofs depend on drains and rely on a waterproof membrane to protect the property. Actually, the term ‘flat’ is misleading here — no roof should be completely flat or you’d find yourself living under a small lake. “Low slope” is a more accurate description of what’s commonly called a flat roof. Low slope roofs should have at least a 1/4 inch of slope per foot (preferably more) so that water can flow downhill to drains and then to the ground.

Polyurethane Foam
This material is sprayed directly onto the roof, where it “foams up” and solidifies before a protective coating is applied. Because of its flexibility, foam is especially useful for roofs with unusual shapes or configurations. Foam has a number of unique advantages over other types of flat roofing systems. For one, it protects against thermal shock and it can greatly reduce your air conditioning bills. Visit our section on residential foam roofs to learn more.

Built-up Roofs
Built-up roofing (aka BUR) is what many people call “hot tar roofing.” A century old, time-tested roofing method, BURs are made of three or four overlapping layers of asphalt felts fused together with hot asphalt.
Built up roofs must be protected from weather, sunlight and foot traffic by some kind of surfacing material such as gravel, a mineral granule covered top layer (a cap sheet), a smooth coat of hot asphalt or a special reflective coating.

Modified Bitumen
Modified bitumen’s, like built-up roofing, are made of reinforced asphalt impregnated felts. However, unlike BURs, the asphalt in the felts is modified with plastic or rubber polymers (hence the name) to improve its elasticity, durability and overall performance. Because of the added polymers, modified bitumen is often applied in a single layer with overlapping seams. They can be “glued” to the roof with hot asphalt or an adhesive, or by using propane torches to melt the asphalt underside. Some modified bitumen require protective surfacing materials, usually mineral granules or a liquid coating.

Single Ply
Single ply membranes are made of rubber, plastic or a hybrid of the two. As the name implies, single ply membranes are applied in a single layer. Installation is simple: the membrane is rolled out, the seams between sheets are heat welded, chemically welded or glued together, and the membrane is attached to the roof with fasteners (usually screws/flat plates), ballast (like rocks) or adhesive.

We had some trim tiles replaced on our roof after some bad weather had taken them off. Ky-Ko was easy to work with. The staff was friendly and pleasant over the phone, the initial roof check was free and they had somebody over to fix our roof within a week. Oscar L. was professional and informed me of everything he was doing and what the process would be. He made sure it all looked good and left me some extra tiles just in case. It was very quick over-all process! I would recommend!

They were on the roof the day after signing the contract! They offer financing which is rare, and worked with the budget for the project. The job was completed in about 5 hours and they cleaned up everything including running a big magnet around to pick up all the small metal parts and nails. Great experience all around.

This company is by far, the best! They know what there doing. They have done over and above work.I had 3 other company repair my patio overhang, only to find out it wasn't fix. They came out, gave me a quot that was great. Then finally it was fix and never any more leaks. Then I had them out to replace my home roof. Couldn't be happier with the work they did. No leaks in my home or my patio. This company is the best and I highly recommend them. Top notch!!!
