When searching for which commercial roofing system will work best for your construction project there are a few things to consider. Also, looking at the variety of commercial roofing systems out there might be a little confusing. Let us tame down the complexity to help you figure out just which one will work best for you.
With a lifespan of over 20 years, TPO roofs are highly durable, and they’re increasing in popularity. They boast a high temperature tolerance with resistance to ozone, ultraviolet rays, and chemical exposure. These roofs also resist punctures, fire, and high winds well, and they’re waterproof and easy to install.
EPDM roofs are one of the longest-lasting roofing systems available, and they’re easy to install. Their versatility makes them ideal for many types of commercial properties. They’re fairly simple to maintain as well.
Made of chemically modified asphalt, modified bitumen roofs have a plastic or rubber-like consistency. They offer many surfacing options, including aluminum, copper, and aggregate. These roofs are a bit inferior to more modern roofing systems.
Like modified bitumen roofs, built-up roofs are an older roofing type for commercial buildings. They consist of layers of asphalt felt and a top covering of pitch, liquid asphalt, or coal-tar. These roofs gain UV protection from gravel placed on top of the covering.
Solar Energy Roofing Systems
Solar energy roofs allow for decreased energy costs, which makes them attractive to business owners. Photovoltaic solar panels absorb energy from the sun and convert it to energy a building can use for power.
