The Key Features of Our Commercial Roof

Over time, your commercial roofing system will give in to the constant exposure to the harsh elements. Replacing your time-worn roof safeguards the establishment from the adverse effects of water intrusion and thermal leaks. To that end, A1 Roofing and Construction provides various commercial roofing products, including the following:

The Key Features of Our Commercial Roof

Metal Roofing

Metal is known for its exceptional strength. Metal roofing can last for up to 50 to 75 years when maintained regularly. With reflective finishes applied, it can drive your utility bills down because it can reduce heat absorption.

Modified Bitumen Roofing

This roofing material fuses hot asphalt (bitumen) with plastic rubber additives layered between sheets of polyester or fiberglass. The lifespan of the modified bitumen roofing depends on the thickness or number of layers. It is also easy to install and low maintenance.

Built-Up Roofing

When you’re on a tight budget, this kind of roofing is perfect. Built-up roofing is an economical option composed of three or more layers of fiberglass membrane coated with hot asphalt. It is then topped with gravel or mineral blends for protection from ultraviolet radiation from the sun.

TPO Single-Ply Membrane

This newer, heat-welded, single-ply roofing membrane offers a 10-year rating. TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) roofing also costs less than PVC ones. Additionally, it can help reduce your energy costs since it reflects heat.

EPDM Single-Ply Membrane

With this rubber-based product’s durability, it’s no wonder it has gained popularity among commercial buildings. EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) roofing can be ballasted, fully adhered or mechanically fastened.
