Types of low slope Commercial, Multi-family and Industrial Roof Systems
Single-ply membranes are complete roofing systems. Made from rubberized materials, these systems come in rolls that are chemically or mechanically attached to your existing roofing structure. After they are rolled out, the seams are either chemically bonded together or heat welded, forming a virtually seamless single layer. The value is in that seamless, waterproof nature. Since seams are the most common point of failure, by eliminating the seam, you reduce leaks substantially. Additionally, many of these membranes come with an increased reflectivity built in. This “cool roof” concept can reduce the costs of cooling your building by 30% or more, while adding years of additional lifespan.
Some of the most commons roofing systems options are:
EPDM Roofing Systems
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic material and stands for ethylene propylene diene terpolymer. EPDM is better known as “rubber roofing” and provides for excellent waterproofing capabilities and long-term durability. EPDM 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.
EPDM rubber roofing has the roofing industry’s longest average service life of approximately 25-30 years. It is lightweight and flexible and can be used for flat, low and steep slope roofs – an ideal roof over application. The membranes have a high resistance to wind, hail, UV radiation, thermal shock and extreme temperatures, making it an extremely durable roof that will keep your roof watertight for years to come.
There are three ways to install an EPDM rubber roof: adhered, mechanically fastened or ballasted. Each installation method has its own benefits and uses. A fully adhered system means that the roof is being glued to the surface beneath it. This is both the most time-consuming installation and the longest lasting of the EPDM systems. The most common EPDM system is mechanically attached, which has fasteners that are screwed into the deck through the insulation. Ballasted systems are loose-laid over the insulation and held in place by smooth, river-washed stoned or concrete pavers.
TPO Roofing Systems
TPO, which is short for thermoplastic polyolefin, offers excellent performance at a very cost-effective price. The heat-welded seams provide for improved strength and durability. TPO’s long-term heat, UV, and fungal resistance, and flexibility without the need for plasticizers make TPO a reliable low-slope roofing system option. TPO membranes are made of a co-polymerized rubber synthetic substance that softens when heated, and then hardens while cooling. These roof membranes are single-ply and can be installed using a variety of methods including mechanical attachment and fully adhered.
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. Additionally, TPO roofs are durable and resist dirt, bacteria and debris build-up making them highly resistant to tears, punctures and impact damage.
PVC Roofing Systems
PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, is a surprisingly strong, durable material for your single-ply system. With a breaking strength of 350 pounds per square inch, it greatly exceeds the ASTM (American Society of Testing and Materials) standard of 200 pounds per square inch.
PVC offers excellent protection against water leaks and is resistant to chemicals, UV and fire.
With its reflective nature, PVC is frequently utilized in “cool roof” technology and may be Energy Star certified, depending on manufacturer.
First installed in the early 1960’s, PVC added solid plasticizers to the PVC membrane allowing for additional weatherability and flexibility, where the membrane alone would be more susceptible to seasonal climate changes. PVC membranes remain incredibly versatile, chemical resistant and are highly recommended for roof-over projects. They are available in a variety of colors, thicknesses, widths, and reinforcements, making them an excellent option for almost any roofing project. PVC is highly reflective/UV resistant, making the membrane an energy efficient option for warmer climates.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
Modified bitumen roofing has evolved for over the past 60 years to become one of the most popular and trusted applications in the world. Its is known for its high tensile strength, excellent waterproofing qualities, flexibility in its expanding and contracting with extreme temperatures, diverse application methods and ease of application.
Modified Bitumen has long surpassed and replaced its cousin, the old Built Up Roof Systems (BUR) that was used for over 100 years. Modified Bitumen is a polymerized rubber or plastic reinforced with fiberglass to create a rugged and flexible waterproof membrane that can be installed in cold temperatures, utilizing a variety of different methods for application. It can be heat welded, cold applied, and self adhered and mechanically attached. Typically it is installed with multiple layers of insulation, base and cap sheet membranes and adhesives. This type of membrane is a good choice for building structures which expand and contract due to extreme changes in temperature and high winds winds
Metal roofing offers incredible durability, beauty and energy efficiency, making it a very attractive option for consideration in any new roof replacement project.
