We offer a variety of services for our commercial roofing customers, including roof installation for new construction, roof replacement, and repairs to existing roofs. Our roofing experts help you choose the best option for repair or replacement based on your budget and the building’s structure. Our crews are well-versed in all types of commercial and industrial roofing systems.
A built-up roof is composed of three elements: felt, bitumen, and surfacing. Bitumen, in the form of coal-tar or asphalt, holds the layers together and provides waterproof protection to the other elements. Surfacing for built-up roofs typically consists of smooth, gravel, slag, or a mineral-coating cap sheet that serves as a wearing surface to protect the underlying layers from damage.
Modified bitumen is essentially a “factory-assembled” built-up roof with the addition of a plastic or rubber based binder. Several coats or laminations of modified bitumen are either covered with a granule-surface cap sheet or left smooth for the application of aluminum or white coating. Like built-up roofing, modified bitumen is resistant to heavy traffic, punctures, and tears. Unlike built-up roofing, modified bitumen affords the application ease of a single-ply system.
Single-Ply EPDM and TPO
We are proud to offer these new state-of-the-art commercial roofing systems. Single-ply roofs, the most advanced roofing systems available, are sometimes called “rubber roofing.” EPDM is a synthetic elastomer that offers long-term durability; excellent resistance to temperature extremes, sunlight, ozone, and moisture; and easy, fast, clean installation. TPO is a thermoplastic-reinforced membrane with tough solvent or hot-air-welded seams. This material has excellent durability and dimensional stability. Both EPDM and TPO are aesthetically pleasing, lightweight, and highly resistant to wear and tear.
Already among the most durable roofing materials, new alloys and coatings make metal roofing panels last even longer, with extended life spans that can exceed 50 years. Metal roofs are extremely weather-resistant, stand up to winds of 120 mph, and resist fading, chipping, or flaking.
