Commercial Roofing Solutions for Property Managers
Flat roofing is used on commercial buildings for a variety of reasons. Commercial buildings don’t need the extra attic space that a sloped roof provides, and commercial roofs need to be accessed by workers. Many flat roofing systems are layered to provide insulation, protection against the elements, and allow access to rooftop HVAC systems and skylights. Because water doesn’t flow as easily off them, flat roofing needs to be watertight and resistant to mold and moss. Many flat roofing materials also come in light colors to reflect sunlight and reduce energy bills.
Types of Flat Roofing
- Modified Bitumen Roofing – Modified bitumen roofing is the traditional type of flat roofing system, consisting of layers of fiberglass fabric soaked in asphalt. This type of roofing can be topped with granules for added protection or UV resistant coatings.
- Rubber Roofing – Sometimes called EPDM roofing, rubberized roofing materials provide insulation and walkability, as well as UV resistance. These roofing sheets are lightweight and can be installed with fasteners or with heat.
- Plastic Roofing Membranes – Plastic roofing membranes are thin layers of material made from plastics like PVC and TPO (thermoplastic) that are very lightweight and capable of completely covering a flat roof in a layer of protection that’s waterproof, mold resistant, and reflective.
