Commercial Roofing Types
Modern Roof Co offers a number of different options when it comes to low-slope commercial roofing, encompassing a wide range of roof types at various price points.
Single-Ply Membrane (TPO, PVC, and EPDM)
In a single-ply roofing system, a thin layer of rubber or plastic is stretched across your roof, creating a barrier that is waterproof.
Modern Roof Co offers three types of membrane. TPO membranes are a good balance between low cost and energy efficiency, and they’re easy to install. EPDM membranes are more durable and hold up well against weather and abrasion damage. EPDM membranes are also quite versatile, coming in a range of widths and thicknesses. Finally, PVC roofs are the strongest single-ply membranes available. Made from the same material as PVC pipes, they’ll withstand just about anything, although they do cost a bit more.
Built-Up Roofing and Modified Bitumen
In a built-up roof, layers of bitumen, or asphalt, are spread over mats of fiberglass or organic material, creating a thick barrier between your building and the elements. Over this layer of bitumen, the roof is then covered in a layer of aggregate material, such as gravel, or by one of the specialized roof coatings described later on.
A modified bitumen roof is a hybrid roof type, combining the layers of bitumen in a built-up roof with a single-ply membrane spread across the top. This offers the time-tested strength and reliability of bitumen with the durability and added waterproofing of a single-ply membrane.
It’s true that metal roofing will cost you more upfront than other types of roof might. But over time, the strength and durability of a metal roof can save you money, and you won’t have to think about your roof for a long time. And because metal roofing comes in so many colors, shapes, and textures, you can use your new roof to help your building stand out from the crowd.
Adding a roof coating to a single-ply or built-up roof system can help to extend the life of your roof. In addition to stopping existing leaks and preventing new ones altogether, applying either an acrylic or silicone coating to your roof can help with energy efficiency as well. When you add a light-colored coating to your roof, you reflect much more UV light and help to keep your roof from absorbing heat, lowering your utility bills and saving money.
In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, many roofing systems now include climate-appropriate greenery as part of their design. While some localities require these additions for certain buildings, adding green roofing is always a good idea. In addition to extending the life of your membrane, green roofing increases your building’s energy efficiency while protecting your roof from hail damage.
Choosing Your Commercial Roofing
At Modern Roof Co, you’ll work with a roofing contractor to ensure that you’re getting the right roof for your business. Your budget, building’s needs, and timeline will determine what kinds of commercial roofing might be best for you.
