Single-Ply Roofing Systems (TPO, PVC, EPDM)
Single-ply roofing systems are made of a layer of waterproofing membrane applied on insulated low-slope roof decks. These roofing systems have become a popular choice of membrane over the past 30 years or so. Single-ply roofing systems use a variety of materials but they all have one thing in common: they are made for installation in a single layer. The three most common single-ply membranes for flat commercial roofing are TPO, PVC, and EPDM. When it comes to installation, single-ply roofing systems can be mechanically attached or glued down. Single-ply roofing applications are all resistant to UV radiation and have tremendous flexibility.
Modified bitumen is a type of asphalt product that can be applied to the roof in both hot and cold temperatures. Also known as bitumen roofing, a modified bitumen roof is one of the longer lasting roofing options for flat roofs. Modified bitumen roofs are often seen as a modern alternative to the built-up roofs and offer a lot of advantages over other types of membrane roofing. It is extremely tear-resistant, making modified bitumen the ideal roofing system for low-slope commercial buildings with a lot of foot traffic.
Metal roofing systems consist of overlapping metal panels or shingles fastened to open framing or a solid substrate. When fabricated and installed correctly, metal makes for an extremely durable, long-lasting roofing material. For that reason, metal roofing is one of the most common commercial roofing options available today. There are many types of metal roofing options to consider, including steel, zinc, copper, and aluminum. Metal roofs offer a high level of versatility and customization options.
Natural Cedar Shakes or Shingles
Cedar is a naturally beautiful wood and makes for a fantastic roofing product. Natural cedar shakes and shingles come in a plethora of options, including stunning gold, rich brown, amber, and deep red. But on top of being appealing to the eye, cedar has numerous practical benefits that make it a great commercial roofing option. For instance, cedar is a naturally durable roofing material being one of the toughest woods available, not to mention a natural insulator. Cedar also contains natural preservatives which make it resistant to moisture, UV rays, and insect damage.
Synthetic roofing shingles, also known as composite shakes, comprise a mixture of several commonly used roofing materials such as asphalt, recycled paper products, and fiberglass. Composite shakes don’t crack, warp, or peel, and when damaged, composite shakes can be replaced on an individual basis. Composite shakes are also fire and moisture resistant, and most manufacturers make composite shakes that are resistant to mold and algae as an added incentive. Generally, composite shakes are a very popular commercial roofing choice in the United States and a great green option if you are looking for environmentally friendly roofing material.
Real slate is generally known as the highest quality, most durable roofing material. Slate is also highly resistant to inclement weather conditions and any temperature fluctuations, making it ideal in areas prone to wind, snow, and heavy rain. Slate is completely non-combustible and will protect your commercial property in the event of a fire and will not absorb water since the high density of the roofing material makes it waterproof. Since slate roofs are not affected by mold and fungus, a slate roof is practically maintenance-free. However, due to high costs, slate roofs are not very common in the country. In fact, most slate jobs at Pinnacle Roofing are repair jobs.
Asphalt Roof Shingles
Asphalt is one of the most common commercial roofing materials in the United States. Asphalt roof shingles can be either organic or fiberglass and come in a variety of different colors and styles. Some types of asphalt shingles are made to resemble wood, tile, slate, or cedar shakes while providing numerous benefits over these other roofing materials. Asphalt roofing shingles are cost-effective, durable, and easy to maintain. They are tailored to protect a home through decades of weathering with little upkeep. Asphalt roof shingles are ideal for steep roofs such as those in Victorian-style houses.
