We can help you to understand the features and benefits of each type of commercial roofing system.
The Duro-Last roofing system is made from a PVC membrane. Every Duro-Last single-ply roof is measured and manufactured to exact size, to accomodate every rooftop penetration. Duro-Last prefabricates the vinyl roof membrane in a controlled factory environment which eliminates up to 85% of seaming that is done on-site during rooftop installation, and improves the long-term performance of the roofing system. Additionally, prefabrication reduces the material waste associated with the installation of most rolled systems. This precise attention to detail ensures an excellent fit and delivers worry-free, leak-proof protection. Duro-Last also has the best warranty in the industry, with a standard 15-year full system warranty, and unlike other manufacturers, includes consequential damages.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
One common low-slope commercial roofing system, modified bitumen, combines hot asphalt (bitumen) with plastic and rubber additives, which are layered between sheets of fiberglass or polyester. Its lifespan is determined by the number of layers installed. Modified bitumen roofing exhibits many characteristics of Built-Up Roof, yet affords the ease of application of a single-ply system. These membranes are resistant to heavy traffic, punctures and tears.
EPDM Single-Ply Membrane
Often referred to as rubber roofing, EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) membrane is a rubber-based product with a proven reputation for durability. Varied application techniques include ballasted, fully adhered and mechanically fastened, allowing EPDM roofing systems to be applied to virtually any roof surface.
PVC/TPO Single-Ply Membrane
Thermoplastic single-ply membranes represent the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. commercial roofing market. Short for polyvinyl chloride, PVC is a sturdy, single-ply roofing membrane proven to perform well on both residential and commercial roofs. TPO, or thermoplastic polyolefin, is a newer heat-welded, single-ply roofing membrane that costs less than PVC and offers a 10-year rating. TPO reflects solar heat, making it a popular choice where energy efficiency is important. Both PVC and TPO are aesthetically pleasing, lightweight and highly resistant to wear.
While it may be more expensive compared to other commercial roofing systems, metal requires little maintenance and often lasts 50-75 years. When it comes to fire, wind and impact resistance, metal roofing stands alone. With reflective coatings applied, metal can also be used to keep utility costs low. Its recycled content, recyclability and energy efficiency qualifies it as a “green” building product.
