Anchor Roofing’s design and engineering team regularly provide Commercial roofing assistance to, General Contractors, Property Management Companies, Architects, and building owners. We have a wide variety of options and associated cost/benefit analysis to help determine the best fit for your project.
We also can provide information on Cost Segregation Studies for Retrofit applications. Typically on large projects that can serve as tax write-offs under Capital Expenditures on their Federal Income Tax. We often provide the financial benefit of covering a large portion of the cost of a re-roof. Cost Segregation Studies often overlooks or doesn’t recognize Commercial Real Estate Investors and Building Owners benefits economically.
Built Up Roofing / Modified
We are proficient in hot mop, torch down, and cold process applications. Our certifications as Warranty Applicators by almost every major material manufacturer allow us to provide roof systems with long-term warranties backed by publicly traded companies to best protect your investment.
The fastest growing sector of the low sloped roof industry for over 15 years. We offer design solutions from tapered system layouts. Our value engineered solutions will improve both your bottom line and your total system’s performance.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, manufactured into rolls of various widths and lengths for the application. This rubber-like material can be loose laid and ballasted with rock or pavers to hold the membrane in place. It can also be fully adhered or mechanically attached as well. Originally manufactured in black rolls it is now also available in white to meet Energy Code Requirements
Polyvinyl Chloride Sheets are manufactured into rolls, and typically mechanically fastened to a roof deck assembly. Roof membrane stays together with the roof assembly due to the use of screws and barb seam plates. You can also fix it through other different installation processes too. Cold process with bonding adhesive to hot mop with asphalt on a fleece-back application is another option. Seams are heat welded together with a robot welder or hand welder. PVC membranes are reinforced with a fabric scrim, and available in a wide variety of colors. However, most local building codes require a white membrane to meet Energy Code requirements.
Thermoplastic polyolefin, TPO is a single-ply roofing system of a Thermoplastic Polyolefin membrane. Their construction is like a sandwich with the top weathering layer of the polyester scrim. Industry experts have long recognized that the weathering layer is critical to the longevity of the roofing system because the weathering layer must withstand the punishment of UV rays, rooftop traffic, and physical damage. TPO single-ply roofing systems offer up to 62% more protection.
Benefits of TPO
In general, TPO membranes are put forth as a product that combines the properties of EPDM and PVC, without any drawbacks that the other materials have. In other words, they are UV-resistant and heat-resistant like EPDM, and heat weldable like PVC.
The smooth surface resists dirt pick-up and biological growth when you compare with other thermoplastic membranes.
TPO membranes carry an Energy Star rating having exceeded city of Houston reflectivity code guidelines based upon solar reflectance and thermal emittance. Energy Star compliant membranes with their high cool roof ratings help reduce the amount of energy required to maintain cool building environments and thus lengthen the life cycle of A/C units by producing less of a workload.
- Superior puncture resistance

Since 1995, TPO roofing systems have fueled nearly all of the growth in single-ply roofing sector of the low sloped roofing industry. Architects and owners alike have learned of TPO’s superior weather resistance and exceptionally reliable heat welded seams.
Toppings, Ballast Systems, Pavers, and Roof Gardens
You can add some of the roof systems toppings for aesthetic reasons. Roof Garden System is an example – which is an actual garden above the roof system. Also where applicable Ballasted Systems as Gravel Laid over the roof or applied with a flood coat of hot asphalt. Paver systems installed over roof systems significantly raise the wind uplift rating of the roof system while adding aesthetic benefits and enabling foot traffic for a variety of purposes. Also, toppings serve to protect the roof membrane from damage, Ultra Violet Light and general abuse.
Tile and Slate Roof Systems
We install all types of tile and slate roofing, from actual clay tiles, compact concrete tiles, metal tiles – tiles manufacture from metal to simulate the look of real tile while decreasing the weight load on the roof substantially and adding durability. Ceramic coat clay tiles, quarry slate, to simulate slate, we will gladly assist you in providing multiple options to meet your needs. Our primary focus is on the proper installation of the tile roof system, which is a lifetime roofing system.
Metal Roof Systems and Metal Fabrication
From our metal shop to our installation crews we install all types of metal roofs, R panel, U Panel, and all types of Standing Seam Metal Roof Systems, be it a snap lock panel, or a hand crimp panel system. We also fabricate and install all roof metal components, including edge metal, pitch pans, expansion joints, stainless steel receivers, parapet coping metal, and any other metal component your roof system or project may require.
