On the market, there is a wide variety of materials for commercial roofs. When you choose one, you have to consider the structure of the building and other factors, like climatic conditions, and or if its surface will be exposed to high foot traffic. This is why it is important to choose qualitative roofing products.
- TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin), PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride), and EPDM Roofing (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) are incredibly robust and flexible materials. These are resistant to cracking and peeling caused by humidity or heat and are designed to be installed in a single layer. These materials are most commonly used in low slope roofs.
- Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems are made from a combination between asphalt and a chemical polymer. This material is applied in multiple layers and it is very resistant to high or low temperatures, and to wind, hail or fire.
- Roof Coating Systems are made from acrylic and silicone. This fluid-applied membrane is a coating metal roofs, protecting it against leaks. This way, it prolongs the life of a commercial roof.
- Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Panels and green roofs absorb natural sunlight and help to reduce energy costs. Both of them can help with long-term cost savings.
