TPO membranes are made with a co-polymerized rubber that allows them greater flexibility in cold climates. This membrane is best recognized for having the benefits of EPDM and PVC systems, at a more economical cost. TPO membranes are white and highly-reflective, making them an excellent choice for those looking to reduce energy costs. In addition to being ENERGY STAR rated, TPO’s recyclability makes it an environmentally conscious system.
Steep slope roofing usually refers to roofing materials suitable for roofs that have slopes of 3:12 or greater. This means for every 12 horizontal inches, the roof’s rise is three vertical inches or greater. Materials suitable for steep slope roofs include asphalt roll roofing as well as asphalt shingles, concrete and clay tiles, wood shakes, slate, and metal roofs.
Roof coatings are liquefied polymers applied to protect and extend the life of a roof system. Along with preserving and extending the life of your roof, coatings can provide a highly reflective surface that may help reduce energy costs by lowering the surface temperature of the roof. Additionally, coatings provide a seamless application that conforms to irregular roof surfaces, as well as seals cracks and splits in the roof surface.
Modified Bitumen Built Up
What are BUR and Mod-Bit? Built-Up roof membranes (BUR) and Modified Bitumen (Mod-Bit) are generally composed of alternating layers of bitumen and reinforcing fabrics that create a finished membrane. Benefits of BUR and Mod-Bit Time-tested defense. BUR roof systems have been utilized for over 100 years in the roofing industry. These roof systems are constructed with layers of felt and bitumen that provide redundancy of durable protection.
The majority of modern metal roofs are made from corrugated galvanized steel; a steel sheet coated with zinc. Copper, aluminum, stainless steel, and tin are also used in commercial metal roof applications. Coatings can be applied to provide additional waterproofing, anti-rust, and UV protection. Benefits of Metal Roof Systems Lightweight shield. Longevity and durability are chief benefits of a metal roof system. In addition, its lightweight nature allows for quick installation and repair.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer
EPDM (Terpolymer) is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane that is used worldwide. EPDM is available in both black and white and is sold in a variety of widths and thicknesses. Its superior durability and cost-effectiveness are part of what makes EPDM one of the most popular flat roof systems installed in the U.S. today. There are three ways to install an EPDM rubber roof: adhered, mechanically fastened or ballasted.
