When you own a commercial building, it is important that your roofing system protects your product/merchandise as well as your employees and patrons. Commercial flat roofing is a cost-efficient roof shape and affords building owners many additional options including solar, garden or green, and outdoor recreational use. Roof maintenance and repairs are much safer and easier than with a steep roof application. Commercial flat roofing comes in a variety of applications including single-ply applications such as EPDM, TPO, and PVC as well as built-up, modified, or hot liquid applied.

EPDM Roofing

One of the more popular commercial flat roofing applications is EPDM Roofing. EPDM roofing systems are very lightweight and easy to install. They are extremely effective at waterproofing a roof structure and the systems last for many years with little to no maintenance. If maintenance is required, the application can easily be patched for damages due to punctures or tears. The application is also very flexible and can be installed on virtually any type of roof regardless of shape or design.

TPO Roofing

TPO roofing provides many benefits in a commercial flat roofing application. TPO roofing systems provide minimal shrinkage for watertight confidence you can count on. The application is ideal for both new construction and reroofing/restoration projects. The material is lightweight yet highly resistant to tears, punctures, and wind uplift. Since the application is typically built with wider sheets, there are fewer seams and less labor compared to other flat roof applications.

PVC Roofing

PVC Roofing membrane is another popular option for commercial flat roof projects and provides many benefits. These roofing systems are flexible and made to eliminate seams and joints, thus minimizing the potential for leaks down the road. The installation process is quick and simple. The material itself is extremely durable and has high resistance to tears and punctures. PVC roofing systems are virtually maintenance free and any required repairs are simple to perform.
