Types Of Commercial Roofing

Commercial Roofing materials are the materials that are used to seal roofs of commercial buildings to protect and make them last longer. It’s a popular choice for homeowners, and its use is growing every day amongst property owners.

It is vital for property owners to have an in-depth knowledge of the kinds of commercial roofing materials that are available especially if you are building a new apartment or renovating an old building.

They are four major commercial roofing are available that homeowners should consider;

• Thermoplastic Roofing

Thermoplastic Roofing system is one the most popular and fastest growing commercial roofing systems available. It is made of durable material with low-temperature flexibility and an extreme high-temperature tolerance that makes it easier for this roofing to protect your building against diverse weather conditions. This particular type of commercial roofing is also highly resistant to ozone, ultraviolet and chemical exposure. It is also built to resist punctures, fire, chemicals and strong winds.

Thermoplastic Roofing Systems are built to last for over 20 years.

• EPDM Roofing

EPDM roofing is built to be durable and can be used on almost any building type. It is regarded by property consultants as a long lasting kind of commercial roofs. They are relatively easy to install, repair and maintain than any other kind of commercial roofs that are available in the market today.

• Photovoltaic Solar Panels This is unarguably one of the best commercial roofing material available as it has a dual function. Photovoltaic Solar Panels are seen as the future of commercial roofing as it comes at a time when the world is heading towards green and sustainable energy. It can be used as a solar energy panel that generates energy. Photovoltaic Solar panels are installed by professionals over a rooftop or attached to a glass and mounted on the roof like a tile. It absorbs the light directly from the sun and converts it to energy that is then used to power the building.

However, Photovoltaic Solar is not widely used as it costs a lot of money to install, but it is definitely the commercial roofing for the future as it offers an incredible energy saving alternative to mitigate the high cost of energy today.

• Green Roofs

This is one roofing system that’s highly demanded by property owners, and it has experienced great surge in recent years. Green roofs are just like every commercial roofing system, but the unique thing about it is the fact that are entirely or partially covered with soil and vegetation over a waterproofing membrane. This commercial roofing reduces the heat that’s accumulated on the roof and gives the apartment an island feel even on a hot day, and it is eco-friendly.

My Florida roofing is an amazing company to deal with. The recently redid our roof from shingles to standing seem metal roof. It looks amazing. I got roughly about 10 quotes from the top roofers in Indian river county and they help educate me and showed me different options of material's for the new roof. Their team came in and stripped reroof the entire home in about week to do great weather. They strip and relapse before any rain could hit the exposed material. Rene and Maxine are such a pleasure to deal with. The are very upfront about everything and every detail that you speak with Rene about is backed up with written documentation so you know and see exactly what you are paying for. They also show and explain the different options to add on if you choose to. They are very quick to respond and answer any questions you may have in a timely matter. No doubt in my mind did I make the right decision going with My Florida Roofing. I recommend and would you use them again for any future projects. Again thank you Rene, Maxine and all of the team at My Florida Roofing for making a new roof process so quick and painless

The Reyes' were very friendly, accommodating and professional. Rene visited the site often to check on the work. The crew was professional friendly and efficient. We had our roof replaced, asphalt shingles to metal, almost a year ago now and still marvel at the look. The color matches perfectly with the house trim. I highly recommend MyFloridaRoofing.
