Modified Bitumen Roofs and Torch Down Roofing Systems
Usually used on flat and low slope roofs, modified bitumen roofing is an asphalt-based roof membrane. If you’re looking for something that contributes to the waterproof capabilities and energy efficiency of your commercial facility, modified bitumen roofing is a great choice.
To ensure full adherence of the membrane to the substrate, this roofing material is sometimes applied using the torch down roofing application method. When done correctly by a professional, Torch down roofing can add some fire-resistance to your facility’s roof.
Spray Polyurethane Foam-Based (SPF) Systems
SPF roofing systems consist of two components:
- An elastomeric topcoat as a weatherproof and UV-resistant roof coating
- Polyurea foam for insulation
Together, SPF commercial roofing systems are effective at protecting your commercial flat roof from extreme temperatures and moisture or rain.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM) Roofing Systems
EPDM roofing systems, which is essentially rubber roofing are a single-ply membrane. With proper installation and drainage, it is effective at preventing ponding, which happens when standing water forms on your roof 24 hours or more after a rainfall. Unlike some metal roof counterparts, EPDM systems also help your rooftop absorb UV rays.
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Roofing Systems
TPO roofing systems are made up of manufactured sheets that can be mechanically fastened with screws, or fully adhered. This roofing is a common type of single-ply roofing membrane.
TPO systems provide superior heat, puncture, and UV-resistance, making it an excellent choice for commercial flat roof applications. As with most single-ply roofing systems, special precautions must be taken with fastening around the perimeter of the roof to prevent uplift from high winds.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) Systems
PVC membrane roofs have increased in popularity for commercial flat roof applications.
The roofing system is strong and pliable, making it excellent at resisting punctures due to extreme weather.
Built-up Roofing System
BUR roofing systems is a roofing system that has multiple layers.
These layers alternate between reinforcing roofing felt and bitumen, which can come in the form of tar, asphalt, or cold-applied adhesive. The multiple layers give extra resistance to leaks and provide effective insulation for your commercial facility.
