All Around Roofing Services: Commercial Roofing
There are many things to consider when choosing a commercial roofing system, with budget and slope of roof typically being the most important factors. Commercial roofing products available today offer superior protection along with affordability and style. All Around Roofing and Exteriors Florida of Rockledge, FL recognizes the importance of a quality commercial roofing system that will not only adhere to the property owner’s budget but will offer protection for years to come.
- Built-Up Roofing (BUR) is one of the most common (and oldest) roofing systems available. It’s very effective for larger properties and a great option for low slope and flat roofs. Built-up roofing contains multiple layers that are treated with bitumen and finished with a glaze, which provides superior leak protection. Although it costs a more than some of the other roofing systems, it’s quite durable and offers a lengthy warranty.
- Modified Bitumen Roofs, or modbit roofs, are another great option for buildings with flat or low slope roofs. These roofing systems are similar to bur roofs, with the addition of polymer which provides greater elasticity. The advantages of using modified bitumen roofing include tear resistance, energy-efficiency, flexibility, easy maintenance/repairs, and it’s waterproof. Because the modbit roof can be applied using cold methods, disruption to the business operation is minimized. Chemical emissions are also reduced with this system.
- EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) roofing is a specialized, synthetic material that can withstand extreme weather conditions. Many commercial property roofs have very little, if any, slope which allows water to accumulate. Standing water can cause damage to a roof over time and EPDM is a good choice for providing protection. Because it contracts and expands and provides good thermal properties, easy to install and affordable, EPDM is a practical choice for flat and low slope roofs.
- TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) is environmentally friendly, affordable, and exceeds current US energy standards making it a popular choice for commercial roofing. TPO can resist damage such as tears, punctures, and high impact due to its flexible membrane. Installation is not as messy and is easier than other roofing applications. TPO is highly desired because of its exceptional ultra violet and weather resistant qualities.
