We Specialize in All Major Flat Roofing Systems
Choosing the right flat roofing material for your roof is just as important as the company you hire to install it. Innovative Roofing & Siding is experienced in the installation of major flat roofing materials. We can help you to understand the features and benefits of each type of system.
EPDM Single-Ply Membrane
Often referred to as rubber roofing, EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) membrane is a rubber-based product with a proven reputation for durability. Varied application techniques include ballasted, fully adhered and mechanically fastened, allowing EPDM roofing systems to be applied to virtually any roof surface.
PVC/TPO Single-Ply Membrane
Thermoplastic single-ply membranes represent the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. commercial roofing market. Short for polyvinyl chloride, PVC is a sturdy, single-ply roofing membrane proven to perform well on both residential and commercial roofs. TPO, or thermoplastic polyolefin, is a newer heat-welded, single-ply roofing membrane that costs less than PVC and offers a 10-year rating. TPO reflects solar heat, making it a popular choice where energy efficiency is important. Both PVC and TPO are aesthetically pleasing, lightweight and highly resistant to wear.
While expensive compared to other flat roofing systems, metal requires little maintenance and often lasts 50 years. When it comes to fire, wind and impact resistance, metal roofing stands alone. With reflective coatings applied, metal can also be used to keep utility costs low. Its recycled content, recyclability and energy efficiency qualifies it as a “green” building product.
For a Superior, Fire-Resistant Healthy Roof, Choose Slate!
Beautiful, durable slate has been used to build roofs that have lasted for hundreds of years. Slate is naturally fire-resistant and low-maintenance, with a life expectancy of between 75 and 200 years. However, slate installation demands the expertise of an experienced Knoxville, TN roofing contractor like Innovative Roofing & Siding. We’ve been successfully installing, maintaining and repairing slate roofs for years. Our slate roofing experts are true craftsmen with the knowledge and experience to provide you with a unique and long-lasting roof.
The Benefits of Slate Roofing
With its unique texture, natural tones and unmatched durability, slate is the perfect combination of practicality and beauty, and will give your home an elegant traditional look.
Modern variations of slate roofing tiles are being made thinner and of lighter weight to achieve the look and feel of slate for a lower cost, and with less complicated installation requirements.
Here are more advantages of a slate roof installed by Innovative Roofing & Siding.
- Superior service life
- High resistance to storm damage and fire
- Impermeable to water, moss and algae growth
- Excellent insulating properties
- Resists chipping, cracking and erosion
- Environmentally friendly

Maintaining and Repairing a Slate Roof
Just as slate roof installation requires special skills, the maintenance, repair and restoration of a slate roof is unique in its demands. Expanding ice can split a slate, and metal flashing can loosen and wear. That’s why it is important to conduct an inspection and maintenance schedule for your slate roof at least once every three years. Innovative Roofing & Siding has the expertise to maintain the beauty and function of your slate roof.
