Types of Commercial Roofing Systems
Flat or Low-Slope RoofingFlat roofs are growing in popularity because of their potential energy savings and can be repurposed into additional living space or green roofs (roofs covered in vegetation). Low-sloped roofs common commercial roofing type can be found in factories, warehouses, apartment buildings, and townhouses. One of the main reasons for a commercial low-sloped roof is to ensure proper drainage.
Commercial Roofing Materials
In the past 20+ years since thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing has been around, it’s now one of the most popular materials for low-sloped roofs. They have the UV and heat resistance of EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber roofs and the heat-weldable properties of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) roofing.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) roofing is known for its flexibility and resistance to chemicals, ozone, punctures, UV, and tears. Easy to repair, they have heat-welded seams and a white reflective color. PVC roofs can last at least 20 years and require minimal maintenance.
These are commonly made of corrugated galvanized steel, which is a steal sheet coated with zinc. Other metals used in metal roofs include tin, stainless steel, aluminum, and copper. Additional coatings can be applied for rust resistance, waterproofing and UV protection. Metal roofs are known to last a lifetime.
Commercial Roof Installation Process
While every commercial roofing project is different, they typically all begin with a very specific in-depth plan from the roofing contractor. The building owners will select the best roofing system for their needs after learning about the different types. Your choice of roofing system will depend on the architecture of the building and the type of business that you have. Climate, energy efficiency needs and budget also will be factored into the decision. Once your roofing contractors complete the job, the work area will be sweeped with magnets and the owner will review the job to ensure it was completed up to standards.
