Understanding the materials used on commercial roofing projects
Although some commercial buildings may use traditional asphalt shingles there are many other materials that we understand and work well with when it comes to commercial roofing projects. Some materials that we can use are sprayed polyurethane foam, single-ply (TPO, PVC, EPDM), modified bitumen, concrete, and restoration coatings. Having an understanding of these different roof types is crucial and we will ensure that you find the right material for your commercial roof.
Understanding the timeline for a commercial roof install and lifetime
As a decision maker for a commercial roofing project understand that commercial roofs can take up to a month or more to install. This should be factored into your planning. Every material is different and some last longer than others. Here are some averages:
- If you have a low slope building you’ll want to use EPDM rubber roofing materials. A single-ply membrane can last 20-25 years before it needs to be replaced. This is a popular option for commercial roofing applications.
- You may have heard of ‘tar and gravel’ or ‘built-up’ roofing before. This type of roofing material is versatile because you can choose the number of plies you want to lay down. Often times these types of roofs can last 10-15 years.
- Metal roofs are by far the longest lasting types of commercial roofs. Metal roofs come in many different shapes and sizes but they’ve been known to last 30-45 years. In Southwest Michigan this can make for a great potential roof.
