Flat or Low-Sloped Roofs (Commercial)
Flat Roof Systems are most typically used in commercial applications for larger buildings. We utilize TPO, Elastomeric Acrylic, Modified Bitumen, Stone Coated Steel and Metal Standing Seam roofing systems.
Most low-slope roof membranes have three principal components:
Weatherproofing layer or layers — the weatherproofing component is the most important element because it keeps water from entering a roof assembly.
Reinforcement — reinforcement adds strength, puncture resistance and dimensional stability to a membrane.
Surfacing — surfacing is the component that protects the weatherproofing and reinforcement from sunlight and weather. Some surfacings provide other benefits such as increased fire resistance, improved traffic and hail resistance, and increased solar reflectivity.
With some roof membranes, a component may perform more than one function.
TPO or Thermoplastic Olefin Roofing
TPO membranes are produced by calendering with lamination, extrusion with lamination, or extrusion-coating techniques. TPO sheets are a blend of polypropylene and ethylene propylenepolymers and usually are reinforced with polyester. TPO sheets contain colorant, flame retardants, UV absorbers and other proprietary substances to achieve desired physical properties.
Elastomeric Acrylic Roofing
After power washing and proper preparation we apply the Elastomeric Acrylic Roof coating by roller as apposed to the spray on method. The reason for this is being that the roll on method provides a much thicker mil base than spraying, especially for recoating.
Polymer-modified bitumen or modified bitumen (MB) sheet membranes were developed in Europe in the early 1960s and have been in use in the U.S. since the mid 1970s. Polymer-modified roof membranes are composed of reinforcing fabrics that serve as carriers for the hot polymer-modified bitumen as it is manufactured into a roll material. MB roof system membranes are composed of multiple layers, much like BUR membranes. MB roof systems typically are installed as a two-ply system and almost always are fully adhered.
There is only one category of metal roof systems used in low-slope applications — structural metal panel. Structural metal panel roof systems can be used for low slope roofs because of their hydrostatic, or water barrier, characteristics. It is important to note structural metal panel roof systems can be used for steep slope roof assemblies, too. Most structural metal panel roof systems are designed to resist the passage of water at laps and other joints as sealant or anti capillary designs can be used in the seams. Structural metal panel roof systems possess strength characteristics that allow them to span supporting members.
