I have a flat roof. What are my options for commercial roofing materials?
Single-Ply Roofing Systems
Single-ply roofing systems are typically made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride), TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) or EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) that are applied to a layer of insulation layed over the deck of the roof. After being layed out on the roof roll by roll, the edges of the system are then heat welded together to create a waterproof seal.
Built-Up Asphalt Roofing Systems
Built-up roofing systems have been the leading choice in roofing materials for decades, thought it has lost a significant percentage of the market share to the increasingly popular single ply roofing systems. This tried and true method of roofing provides you a great looking roof that will last you for years.
Spray-On Coating Systems
Usually the lowest-cost alternative to tearing off your existing roofing system, or even re-covering your rooftop with single ply.
Metal Roofing Systems
Arguably the most durable of the roofing systems, metal roofs have been used for centuries in the form of copper and bronze single roofs seen in Europe as early as the 3rd Century BC. Many roofing systems use a combination of metal and single-ply depending on the surface of the building. The three main methods of metal roofing are standing-seam metal roofing, corrugated metal roofing and metal shingle roofing.
