Types of Commercial Roofs
North West Roofing has extensive experience in the repair, maintenance and replacement of all types of commercial roofing systems. Our expert roofers receive extensive factory training from the manufacturers whose roofs we install, ensuring that we are uptospeed on the latest roofing technologies, materials and installation methods.
Among the types of flat and low slope Denver commercial roofing systems we install, repair and maintain are:
Single-Ply TPO Roofs
TPO (thermoplastic olefin) PVC roofs are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. commercial roofing industry. Also known as “cool roofs,” TPO single-ply roofs are light in color to reflect the sun’s energy and keep the roof and building temperatures cooler, reducing energy use. The single-ply material is durable, stable and easy to install.
Also called “rubber roofs,” EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) have been proven effective on commercial roofs for nearly 50 years. A tough rubberized, single-ply sheet is attached directly to the roof with adhesive. Most EPDM roofs are black, but some systems are now
available in white to help reflect sunlight. A great choice for commercial roofs of any size.
Built-Up (Hot Tar) Roofs
A traditional roofing system consisting of several layers of felt underlayment that is attached to the roof using a “hot mop” black tar method. The tar (bitumen) provides waterproofing, and the layers are generally covered with a layer of gravel or minerals to provide additional protection. A lowcost roofing option.
Modified Bitumen Roofs
Similar to built-up roofing, but with the added strength and durability of plastic or rubberbased polymers embedded in the multiple roofing layers. These polymers provide superior tensile strength and additional defense against punctures and tears. A good option for roofs that experience heavy traffic.
Standing seam metal roofs are among the most durable commercial roofing systems, often providing a life cycle of more than 50 years. Today’s metal roofs are more attractive, available in a variety of colors, and are coated with advanced polymers that resist fading, chipping and rust. Metal roofs are extremely fire resistant, storm resistant, pest resistant and are rated for winds of up to 120 mph.
Asphalt Shingle Roofs
Although more commonly used in residential roofing, asphalt shingles can be an affordable option for commercial roofs when the building’s architectural style allows. For example, steeply pitched office roofs or the roofs of some condominium complexes.
Asphalt shingles offer a wide variety of colors and styles, are easily maintained, and can last 15 to 30 years depending on the grade of shingle selected. The commercial roofing experts of North West Roofing can help you examine your roofing options and choose the roofing type that is best suited for your building structure, expected service life, protection needs and budget.
