Commercial Roofing Systems
Any product of any kind of labor should be treated with the utmost respect, not necessarily for the product itself, but for the person who has invested their time, and sometimes money into creating it. That’s especially noticeable when owning a business; everything has to be in place, everything has to be of premium quality and so on. The same goes for your commercial building. Whether it acts as a storage unit or a store, it contains the fruits of your labor. It’s natural you would want it properly taken care of. And among other things you have to worry about as a commercial building owner, a businessman, you really don’t want to worry about your roofing system.
The main differences between residential and commercial roofing systems include the vast differences in the occupied space. Moreover, commercial buildings tend to put functionality over aesthetics, while a residential roofing system has to be both visually appealing and functional.
When it comes to choosing the best solution for your commercial building, there are many different styles and types in existence today. They are usually chosen based on their specific properties that may provide the upper hand in certain environments and climates.
The most popular type among many commercial building owners across the US is the synthetic rubber roofing. Usually paired with metal roofing systems, it uses EPDM or Ethylene propylene diene monomer. It’s considered to be extremely resistant to ozone and UV rays, making it perfect for hot and sunny areas. Not only that, but it’s also extremely tolerant when it comes to dealing with harsh weather conditions, such as hail, wind, rain or snow. This makes them perfect for areas with unstable climate conditions.
Built-up roofing systems are becoming a common choice for many commercial building owners. It’s actually a novelty on the market. In its construction, it uses organic materials, such as felt, mats and similar materials which are then laminated together by using bitumen. On top of it all, gravel is placed to provide security from all kinds of weather.
Bitumen roofing systems are made of reinforced asphalt. It’s usually reinforced with either polyester or fiberglass. Although we all know roof aren’t meant for walking, bitumen roofing systems tolerate extensive amounts of foot traffic.
If you decide to deck your roof, there are a lot of choices available on the market. Metal decks come in a variety of shapes and styles, and their forte lies in an extreme level of wind resistance. Wooden decks are resistant to any kinds of seismic activity. On the other hand, foot traffic is highly forbidden on this type of commercial building. Other types include light weight concrete decks and structural concrete decks which are both made to withstand harsh weather conditions.
It’s difficult to entrust your entire life’s work to someone else, but you can at least make sure the person handling your possessions is an expert. When arranging a consultation with a roofing expert, look for adaptability paired with immense levels of both knowledge and experience.
