Commercial Roofing Replacement

The quality and longevity of your commercial building roof are crucial.

Your roof helps your operating costs stay low by controlling energy use and efficiency. It also protects your building from the environmental dangers which weather and age can present.

Even the highest-quality roofing system will eventually need replacement. If a recent inspection has found evidence of any of these issues it may be time to replace your roof.

  • Water infiltration
  • Damage to the interior or exterior of the building
  • Roof membrane damage
  • Movement
  • Uplift
  • Deck and structural issues

An extension of asphalt roofing, modified bitumen offers excellent weather resistance and increased durability. There are two main types of modified bitumen:

  • SBS (Styrene Butadiene Styrene) is a thermoplastic elastomer, has excellent abrasion and aging stability when blended with bitumen.
  • APP (Actic Polypropylene) is a waterproofing membrane that provides superior tensile strength while maintaining flexibility even in cold environments.

However, advances in materials and manufacturing offer better, safer, and more affordable options. While we still offer modified bitumen as an option, we’re doing fewer replacements.

EPDM is available in both black and white, in a wide range of widths from 7.5 feet to fifty feet and two thicknesses. This has been a popular material for the past 20 years. It’s a flexible material which easily expands and contracts as the temperature changes. EPDM has one of the longest average service lives in the industry.

TPO is one of the fastest-growing roofing materials for commercial flat roof installations. This thin material is gaining in popularity among building owners looking for a durable, reflective roof. They want something known for being energy-efficient and also affordable. TPO is a single-ply roofing membrane, whose name is a little bit misleading as it is actually one of a few different types of rubber. Typically it is made using a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber. TPO roofing systems are a great choice for your new or replacement roof.
