Commercial Roofing in Austin
When it comes to choosing a new roof for your business, you have a handful of options based on the type of roof your business has, the aesthetic you’re after, and the weather conditions your location is prone to. We understand that your main concern as a building owner or facility manager, is to make sure the occupants of your building are both protected and comfortable. In order to accomplish this in the best way possible, you will need to pick a type of roof that is durable, efficient, and long lasting. All of the following four materials fit that description and may be the right choice for your building:
According to statistics from the Cool Metal Roofing Coalition, as many as 20% of commercial roofs in the United States are metal. This rise in popularity is likely due to increased awareness of the numerous benefit metal roofing has to offer. One such benefit is its unparalleled durability. Metal roofs last from 30 to 60 years or more with some manufacturers even swearing to a lifespan of over a century, meaning a family business could be passed down from father to son without ever needing to change the roof! That’s longevity that you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.
Another excellent choice in commercial roofing material is modified bitumen. Over the years since its initial invention, modified bitumen has been continuously improved through a combination of traditional and modern practices. These improvements have taken a mediocre roofing material and turned it into a staple of commercial buildings everywhere. Modified bitumen is highly weather-resistant and waterproof, which is a necessity for commercial roofing. It is also versatile enough to be used on virtually any type, shape, and style of roof. Seemingly in spite of all these benefits, modified bitumen is still available at a lower price point than many other commercial roofing materials.
Thermoplastic PVC/TPO Single-Ply
Thermoplastic PVC and TPO single-ply are highly innovative new materials that are essentially transforming the commercial roofing industry. Both PVC and TPO materials are lightweight, extremely weather resistant, and aesthetically pleasing. They also offer offer outstanding dimensional stability and durability. Because of all this and more, thermoplastic PVC and TPO single-ply are now two of the most commonly used commercial roofing products available on the market today.
Since its development the early 1970s, EPDM has been incorporated in countless commercial roofing projects across the country and internationally. EPDM membranes are known and praised for their stability and resistance to UV rays, extreme temperatures, and other unfavorable weather conditions. They are also prized for their long-term weathering feature- like wood shingles or shakes, EPDM ages beautifully. Many commercial roofers recommend single-ply EPDM because it is durable and adaptable as well as being easy to work with.
