Roofing ContractorThermoplastic Polyolefin Roofing Systems, also known as TPO, are one of the fastest growing roofing systems being installed in the commercial industry today.  Made of a reinforced polyester fabric or compounded from a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymers, produces a strong product with a high-temperature endurance and also a low-temperature flexibility, these roofing systems are incredibly resistant when it comes to ultraviolet rays, chemical, and as well as ozone exposure.  TPO roofing systems can easily have a lifespan of 25+ years, and feature a high resistance to heat, abrasion, chemicals, as well as strong winds.

EPDM Roofing Systems are composed of synthetic rubber material formulated extensive flexibility for roofing membranes.  This material offers remarkable toughness, flexibility, resistance to UV  rays, weathering, and abrasion, making it one of the longest lasting roofs of commercial roofing systems available today.  Additionally, it has been said that EPDM roofs are typically less complicated to fix and easier to install versus other types of roof coverings.

Built-Up Roofing Systems known as BUR, has been in use in the United States for over 100 years.  BUR systems generally are composed of alternating layers of saturated felts with fortifying fabrics that each contain bitumen between each layer.  The fabrics or layers utilized on built-up roofing are called ply sheets which are normally created in a standard size of about 36 inches in width.  The quantity of plies in a cross section is the number of plies on a roof: the expression “four plies” signifies a four-ply roof membrane development, which also adds strength, resistances, and stability.  Typically, the completed system has either an aggregate surfacing or a granulated surface cap-sheet.

Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems. Very similar to an asphalt built-up roofing system, however has extra polymers in their materials that give added protection and security from the outside weather elements and help in expansion and prolonging the lifespan of the product.  The main components when constructing a modified roof system are the asphalt, a base layer, interplay sheets, and a cap sheet. This roofing system consists of polymer-modified membranes consist of reinforcing fabrics that are usually polyester or fiberglass, or a mixture of both.  These reinforcements help keep the membrane solid, improve tensile strength, and allows for elongation within the sheet.  There are generally two (2) types of polymer-modified asphalts such as atactic polypropylene polymer (APP) or styrene butadiene styrene polymer (SBS).  APP gives a “plasticized” result while SBS produces a “rubberized” result.  These materials have various methods of being installed such as with asphalt, using a torch or heat-welding, and a self-adhered application.

Environment-friendly Roofs also known as Green Roofing Systems. Of all the types of industrial roofing systems available at these days, green roofs have the biggest rise in appeal in the last couple of years.  The standard form of a green roof is a sedum green roofs that is entirely or partially covered with plants as well as dirt and grown over a waterproof membrane layer.  Eco-friendly roofing systems lower the effect known as heat island in urban areas by taking in heat and are discovered to improve significantly roof’s insulation value– extending the life of the roof covering by as long as 2 to 3 times longer and also saving money on cooling and heating costs.
