Commercial Roof Types:
An environmentally acceptable roofing solution for commercial, industrial, and manufacturing establishments is Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF). When sprayed as a liquid, Spray Polyurethane Foam, or SPF, creates a solid layer across an existing roof by expanding into foam. SPF provides the highest R-value per inch by delivering thermal, air, and moisture barriers. Cracks and splits are less likely when the foam expands and contracts with the structure. An uninterrupted solid surface means that the most vulnerable area to leaks is removed.
Commercial, industrial, and manufacturing buildings have relied on single-ply membranes for decades. Commercial facilities can benefit from the use of Single-Ply Membranes, which are sheets of rubber and synthetics that can be ballasted, mechanically affixed, or chemically glued to insulation. As a client, you have a broader range of choices.
Among commercial roofing systems, metal roofing is among the oldest and most well-known. Corrugated galvanized steel is the material of choice for most metal roofing systems, but other options like aluminum or tin are also available. Because of its lightweight, metal roofing can be put directly over an existing roof. While most people associate shingle roofing with houses and other residential structures, it is just as common to find shingles on steeply sloped commercial structures. A variety of materials can be used to make shingles, including wood and slate, as well as metal, plastic, ceramic, and asphalt. Asphalt and architectural shingles are the two most common types of shingles. When it comes to shingles, asphalt shingles are the most widely utilized and cost-effective option. On average, these roof systems have guarantees of 15 to 30 years. Architectural shingles are thicker and more durable because of their several layers. A “lifetime” warranty is often included in the purchase price.
This type of roofing has been around for almost a century. “Tar and Gravel” roofs are the most popular term for this type of roof. A built-up system is one in which the roof is covered with multiple layers of asphalt or tar, each with different supporting fabric. If you like, you can select the number of layers (or plies) that will be installed. A built-up roofing system is completed with a layer of stone or gravel.
