Single Ply Roofing
single ply is fast and easy to install with lower labor costs.
A single ply commercial roof is a non-asphalt system installed with just one membrane. Single ply roof membranes are cost-effective and installation is usually minimally disruptive to your business. Unlike BUR systems, for example, single ply is fast and easy to install with lower labor costs. Single ply systems like TPO, PVC, and EPDM also offer excellent reflective properties to reduce energy costs. Many types of single ply are also resistant to chemicals.
There are several types of single ply commercial roofing systems, each with benefits and drawbacks.
Also known as a rubber roof
EPDM has been used since the 1970s with very little changes to the formulation. Also known as a rubber roof, EPDM is made from a unique rubber polymer that gives your roof excellent resistance to UV damage that can make other materials brittle.
Compared with other commercial roofing systems, EPDM offers great protection against hail, fire, wind, thermal shock, abrasion, and low temperatures.
An EPDM roof is a cost-effective and durable flat roofing system. This flexible, lightweight material is popular for roof recovery and can be installed in several ways, including fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted with seams.
easy to maintain and repair
PVC is one of the most popular commercial roofing options. This thermoplastic roofing is soft when heated but hardens as it cools. Unlike TPO, PVC membranes are fire-resistant without additional chemicals and the material has a proven track record. PVC is an eco-friendly roofing solution that’s fully recyclable and easy to maintain and repair. It’s been used extensively since the 1960s when it became the first roof membrane to contain at least half of the fossil fuels normally used to produce commercial roofs.
PVC roofs also offer a low lifecycle cost. PVC is very reflective and UV resistant, which makes it incredibly energy efficient. Its flexibility also allows it to resist damage to temperature changes.
TPO is a thermoplastic roofing membrane
TPO roofs have been used for more than 30 years and now account for 40% of all commercial roofing. Like PVC, TPO is a thermoplastic roofing membrane that hardens as it cools.
TPO is more flexible in cold weather than PVC &
it’s generally recognized as having the best qualities of PVC and EPDM at a lower cost.
While it hasn’t been used as long as EPDM and PVC, TOP roofing offers similar UV reflectivity as PVC and better puncture resistance, weather resistance, and sustainability than PVC and EPDM.
Metal Roof Coating
Commercial metal roofing is the longest-lasting roofing solution with a low life cycle cost and easy maintenance.
A properly installed metal roof can last for 50 years or even longer while remaining weather resistant and attractive.
Despite the higher upfront cost, a metal roof can be the ultimate investment in your business. No other roofing system performs better than metal against UV damage, leaks, wind, hail, and punctures.
(BUR) & Modified Bitumen Roofing
Bitumen or pitch is an oily byproduct of refining crude oil. Built-up and modified bitumen are two common roofing systems that use bitumen as an adhesive to create layers of fabric or felt. BUR systems are made with layers of bitumen and felt applied hot and allowed to cool before they are covered with a layer of gravel or another weather-resistant coating.
Most BUR systems are 3 or 4 ply. A modified bitumen system combines these layers during manufacturing instead of during application. This makes modified bitumen a single ply application.
Fluid Applied Roofing
Fluid applied roof is a cost-effective solution to protect a new roof or extend the life of an aging roof. A roof coating creates a waterproof membrane to guard against the elements as well as tears and leaks.
There are many formulations of roof coatings that can be applied to virtually any roof, including metal, single ply, and BUR.
This type of commercial roofing system offers many advantages:
Economical Alternative To Reroofing.
Better Than Traditional Roof Shingles
Economical alternative to reroofing. A fluid applied membrane can restore an aging roof and save up to 70% over the cost of roof replacement.
Reduces Exterior Noises
Minimal disruption. A roof coating can be applied quickly to your roof without the disruption of a tear-off or unpleasant fumes.
Less Waste And Eco Freindly Materials
Rather than tearing off and replacing your roof, a coating can restore it with a new waterproof membrane. Many coatings also qualify for the LEED program with no or low VOCs and no dangerous chemicals.
Reflective For Energy Savings
Reduces Energy Costs By Up too 30%
Reflective for energy savings. White commercial roof coatings offer unparalleled UV protection and reduce the surface temperature of your roof to lower energy costs.
Reduces Risk Of Water Damage From Leaks
Stops leaks. If your existing roof is leaking, a fluid applied roofing membrane can restore your roof’s integrity and stop leaks around vents, flashing, fasteners, tears, and more.
Roof Coatings Life Span
Lasts Longer Then Traditional Roofing Systems
Roof coatings last up to 10 years and can be reapplied when needed. Its flexibility also allows it to resist damage to temperature changes.
Commercial roof coatings can last for up to a decade with easy maintenance. When the coating wears out, it can be reapplied. With proper maintenance, a fluid applied roofing membrane can last for decades with just one or two recoatings. Applying a roof coating is one of the most cost-effective forms of commercial roof repair with long-term results that a patch can’t offer.
