Commercial roofing contractors offer the most comprehensive selection of commercial roofing materials. For flat roofs, the most popular include TPO, PVC, EPDM and modified bitumen roofing, which are generally designed for one-layer installation. They also exhibit great flexibility and are resistant to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, making them superior to other products.
At Kirtley and Sons Roofing, our TPO, PVC and EPDM roofing products usually come in black or white finish, and are often glued, fastened or installed over a roof insulation material. We discuss more about them below.
TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) is an energy-efficient roofing membrane. It has all the benefits of EPDM and PVC roofs, but without the drawbacks and extra costs. A TPO roof is as UV and heat resistant as EPDM and as heat weldable as PVC.
TPO resists mold growth, dirt accumulation, tearing, impact and punctures. It is flexible and allows for any structure’s movement or settling. It can handle a building’s thermal expansion and contraction.
In general, TPO membranes come in wider, lightweight sheets. This means less work and time in its commercial roof installation.
EPDM Roofing Systems
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) is popular in low-slope and flat roofing. It offers superior weatherability, exceptional wind uplift resistance, extreme flexibility and more. Since 1980, the EPDM system has dominated the single-ply roofing market.
PVC roofing membranes offer strength, durability and resistance to moisture, wind, fire and chemicals. Additionally, they are often chosen by homeowners looking for energy efficiency. A high-quality PVC roofing membrane can last more than 20 years. It will not need much commercial roof maintenance during its service life, letting you save money on costly maintenance and repairs for years to come.
