The roof over your business represents one of the most important investments that you’ll ever make. Oftentimes, however, business owners overlook their roofs, which can ultimately lead to costly damage or the sudden need for a roof replacement. That’s why it’s so important to know a commercial roofing contractor that you can trust.
Most commercial properties have flat or low-slope roofs, which present unique challenges. The roofing technicians at Modern Roof Co have the training, knowledge, and experience to handle any type of roofing need. Call Modern Roof Co, and we’ll help you to protect your business.
Types of Commercial Roofing
Commercial properties come in all shapes and sizes…and so do budgets! With a number of different options for materials and construction, we’ll make sure that you get the roof that best suits your needs.
With single-ply membranes, we stretch a large rubber or plastic sheet of material across the roof of your building, securing it either at the edges or across your roof. Once it has been installed, this membrane creates a waterproof barrier.
Modern Roof Co offers three types of membrane: EPDM, TPO, and PVC. Of the three, TPO is generally the least expensive, since it’s the easiest to install. It also offers the highest energy efficiency. EPDM stands up better to weather, like hail and wind damage, as well as abrasion from debris, making it ideal for a tough climate. If you need something stronger, PVC is the way to go. Made from the same material as PVC pipes, these membranes will hold up in the toughest conditions—although it might cost you more.
Built-Up Bitumen Roofing
In built-up roofing systems, the roofing contractor lays down layers of bitumen—or asphalt—over the top of what’s known as roofing felt, an organic or fiberglass mat that fuses with the bitumen. Once cooled, the bitumen forms a waterproof barrier on your roof, protecting you from the elements.
Usually, the roofing contractor will lay down a final layer of gravel or aggregate. This layer adds extra protection while reflecting sunlight away from the building.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
A hybrid between single-ply and built-up roofing, the modified bitumen roof omits the layer of gravel. Instead, a single-ply membrane is stretched over the bitumen roof, combining the strength and durability of a built-up roof with the additional waterproofing offered by a membrane.
Of all of the roofing options, metal roofs are definitely the most expensive. But with their flexibility and outstanding life expectancy, you could end up saving money with a metal roof in the long run. Metal roofs are waterproof and corrosion-proof, and they’re much more durable than single-ply membranes. And because metal roofs come in a wide variety of colors and styles, your new metal roof can help you to stand out from your competitors.
Roof Coating Services
Roof coatings are a great way to add durability and waterproofing to your existing roof. Applied as a liquid, a roof coating can extend the life of your current roof by repairing small holes and cracks, while also preventing new leaks from developing.
By adding a light-colored roof coating, you can also save a bunch of money on your utility bills, as the coating reflects the sun’s heat.
Green Roofing Services
For business owners that are looking to save money while helping the environment, Modern Roof Co will work with you to select climate-appropriate plants to incorporate into your roof design. This eco-friendly design not only helps to regulate the temperature of your building, but it can also protect your roof, as well, extending the life of single-ply membranes by nearly three times.
No matter what roof you choose, you should have it inspected at least once a year. By doing so, you’ll catch any developing problems early on and keep small problems from becoming big ones. Modern Roof Co also offers storm damage assessment, which is an important part of commercial roofing in Thornton. We’ll help you to file any necessary insurance claims, so that you get the best payout possible, while also getting the roof repairs or replacement that your business needs.
