WE SPECIALIZE IN ALL MAJOR COMMERCIAL ROOFING SYSTEMS
Choosing the right material for your roof is just as important as the company you hire to install it. We can help you to understand the features and benefits of each type of system:
Built-Up Roofing (BUR): Built-up roofing (BUR) is a very economical choice for flat roofs. It is composed of three or more layers of fiberglass membrane coated with hot asphalt, with a top layer of gravel or mineral blends to protect the surface from weather, UV rays and mechanical damage.
Modified Bitumen Roofing: This option combines hot asphalt (bitumen) with plastic and rubber additives, layered between sheets of fiberglass or polyester. Modified bitumen roofing exhibits many characteristics of built-up roofing, yet affords the ease of application of a single-ply system. These membranes are resistant to heavy traffic, punctures and tears.
EPDM Single-Ply Membrane: Often referred to as rubber roofing, EPDM 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 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 Single-Ply Membrane: 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.
Metal Roofing: While expensive compared to other commercial systems, metal requires little maintenance and often lasts 50-75 years. When it comes to fire, wind and impact resistance, metal roofing truly stands out. 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.
