TPO Roofing – Thermoplastic Polyolefin single-ply commercial roofing membranes provide UV protection and can be secured mechanically, ballasted or fully adhered to a building. The seam strengths of TPO roofing systems have been tested to be 3-4 times stronger than other options like EPDM roofs. Since the green building initiative, TPO roofs have become increasingly more popular among building owners. The use of white or lighter colored roofing materials assists in reducing what is known as the urban heat island effect. In addition, TPO roofs help greatly reduce heat gain into a commercial building making it very energy efficient. Colors are available in black, grey or white.
BUR Roofing– (Built-up roofs) These roofing systems have been around for over a century. Often called tar and gravel roofs, commercial BUR roofs consist of several layers of roofing felts and a bitumen materials to create a water tight seal. The layers in a roofing system are referred to as “plies”. Typically a bottom or base ply is fastened to the roof deck mechanically and other layers can be cold applied with adhesives or tar applied. Many times an aggregate or gravel is used as a top finishing material. Other options include using 36 inch wide rolls of bitumen material that is covered with ceramic granules much like an asphalt shingle.
Modified Bitumen Roofing – These roofing systems come in two different types; APP (Atactic polypropylene) or SBS (styrene butadiene styrene). The main difference between the two is that APP modified bitumen membranes are a plastic asphalt and SBS membranes are an elastic asphalt. Both require being heated and SBS requires a little more skill due to overheating can cause problems in the application. SBS membranes are generally quicker to install than APP’s. Over time plastic asphalts can begin to crack sooner, whereas elastic asphalt has more flexibility. Both types of commercial roofs in Florida require periodic inspections and maintenance.
EPDM Roofing – (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) roofing is a very durable single-ply synthetic rubber roofing material that comes in 45 to 80 mil thickness and various widths. Commercial EPDM roofs can be ballasted, secured mechanically or fully adhered to the roof. Seaming options include specially formulated seam tapes or other liquid adhesives. Colors are available in white or black. EPDM roofs have proven to have a longer life cycle, making them a cost effective and Eco-Friendly choice. In addition, they tend to hold up well against adverse conditions such as hail.
