How to Choose a Commercial Roof
Whether you own a large warehouse or a small cafe, the type of roof you choose will have an impact on the lifespan of your building. The building size, location, desired appearance, and your budget are all important when choosing which commercial roofing system to install.
Types of Commercial Roofs
There are four main types of commercial roofing systems available: thermoplastic (TPO) roofing, EPDM roofing, photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, and green roofs. All can be warrantied up to 30 years.
Thermoplastic roofing systems are constructed with durable materials and can withstand high temperatures. These types of roofs are especially resistant to ultraviolet, ozone, and chemical exposure.
EPDM roofing systems are usually easier to install and upkeep than the other three types of roofing. They are durable, versatile systems.
PV Solar Panels
Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels are installed over a rooftop to absorb sunlight and convert it to energy, which can then be used to power the building. This both saves energy and reduces your business’s carbon footprint.
A green roof system is a flat roof that is either partially or entirely covered with soil and plants. The bed of soil is installed over a waterproofing membrane to protect the building. These types of roofs greatly improve insulation, which in turn reduces heating and cooling costs year-round.
