Residential & Commercial Roofing Expert
Roofing Options for commercial roofing have become very reliable when properly installed. Modern single-ply membrane applications like TPO and EPDM roofs have been proven to provide dependable protection for businesses with low-slope roofs. But that protection is only as good as the installer. It is critical that your roofing systems contractor brings the right experience to the job. With 35 years of local experience, our reputation is stellar.
Commercial Roofing Systems
Over the past several decades, TPO and EPDM roofing have become the top choice for low-slope applications. Their quick, no mess installation, green properties and flexibility for use with almost any substrate all add up to economy and value for the building owner.
Your roofer should be able to demonstrate the advantages of each material and recommend the right application for you. We have worked on hundreds of commercial structures, and we know what works where. Our extensive work as a roofing systems contractor shows in a final product that will protect your building from the elements and save you money on your energy bill for years and years.
TPO and EPDM Roofing Systems
Single ply-membranes are what most people refer to generally as rubber roofing systems. The material arrives on site in sheets or rolls that are unfurled and joined to cover the structure with a lightweight, but highly protective barrier.
There are several options for attaching these roofing systems to the building, including adhesion, mechanical fastening and simple ballast. Your roofing contractor will make a recommendation based on the conditions, the substrate material and other factors.
One advantage that business owners love is that, with a little preparation, single-ply membrane roofing systems can usually be installed right on top of the old surface. By avoiding a costly and messy tear-off, the disruption to your business is minimized. In fact, once the proper prep work has been done on the old surface, the TPO or EPDM roofing system can usually be completely installed in a day or two.
While the installation may seem simple, the skill and experience of your roofer is critical for a durable and long-lasting protective covering. This is particularly important when forming seams between sheets of the material and when forming flashing and joints around edges. Seams in TPO material are hot-air welded, while EPDM seams are glued or taped.
Our roofing team has years of experience forming these seams and sealing the joints around extrusions, like vent pipes and mountings for HVAC equipment. We always reexamine our seams throughout the day in both shade and full sun conditions for complete assurance of an uninterrupted barrier.
Energy Star Roofing Systems
The US Department of Energy estimates that you can save 10-15% on your energy bill with cool roof technology. White TPO roofing systems are inherently reflective. By simply keeping the sun’s rays from heating up your building, your air conditioner’s workload will be dramatically reduced. Although EPDM material has been traditionally black, manufacturers have now added a white reflective top layer option to their products for increased energy savings as well.
With 35 years’ experience, we can offer you complete confidence that our work will stand the test of time. We provide a 5-year warranty on every project. We also work with the best materials from name-brand companies like Versico. Long-term warranties are available on many of their top materials.
