Types Of Flat Roof We Install
Built-Up Roof (BUR) – Built-Up Roofing is a sort of flat roof that is traditionally built of hot tar, asphalt, and gravel. The roof is made up of layers of waterproof material interspersed with hot tar, and a layer of gravel serves as ballast. The end product is a long-lasting, very resistant waterproof membrane that will provide years of reliable service to your commercial or industrial flat roof. The most popular type of commercial or industrial flat roof available today is BUR roofing. This long-lasting and water-resistant flat roof performs particularly well in harsh conditions.
EPDM Roof – EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is another common flat roof material for commercial and industrial structures. EPDM roofs are comprised of a synthetic rubber that combines ethylene propylene and diene to form a flat roof that is both flexible and durable. EPDM roofing is a popular choice nowadays because it’s not only simple to maintain, but it’s also designed to withstand sun damage (a great option for commercial or industrial buildings in warmer climates). EPDM rubber membrane is a common choice for low-slope buildings, but it can also be used for other types of constructions.
Modified Bitumen – Modified Bitumen is a common flat roof material used on flat and low-sloped structures. Modified bitumen roofing flat roofs are made out of polymer modified bitumen material that is reinforced with one or more layers of fabric. Cold applied, heat weld, self-adhered, mechanically fastened, and hot applied are some of the application methods for this sort of commercial or industrial flat roof. For commercial or industrial flat roofs, there are two types of modified bitumen membrane. They are as follows:
(1) Atactic Polypropylene (APP) is a thermoplastic polymer that is often applied with a propane-powered torch.
(2) Butadiene Styrene Styrene (SBS): Gives a rubber-like look to commercial or industrial flat roofs. SBS roofs are extremely long-lasting and resistant to harsh winter conditions. Heat welding or cold application are the most typical methods for installing this sort of roofing system.
PVC or TPO
Commercial or industrial flat roof possibilities include PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) roofing, both of which are single-layered and constructed of white or grey material. Similar to an EPDM rubber roof, PVC or TPO roofing membranes can be glued or mechanically fastened using screws and plates. Because of their environmental benefits, PVC and TPO roofs are becoming more attractive solutions for commercial and industrial flat roofing. PVC and TPO roofs, for example, are both constructed of highly reflective materials that can reduce energy demand as well as monthly heating and cooling expenditures.
Flat roofs are also great for building roof decks. A level roof offers less overhead room for air to stagnate, whereas a sloped roof might trap undesired warm air or enable cooled air to escape. Flat roofs are most common in commercial properties. They provide extra space for the HVAC system and skylight, etc. When you want a flat roof installed by a professional, let us know.
