Your commercial roofing has the potential to be extremely costly for your business in terms of time, money, and stress! . Before making any major decisions about replacing or repairing, a professional like Aabco Roofing should be called for an inspection. Only after an inspection can an informed decision be made l about what commercial roofing services your roof system needs.
Repair or Replace?
As a business owner, we hope that our commercial roof lasts for years to come, however, there are a number of external factors that could cut its life short. Whether your roofing system hasn’t been maintained or the wrong system was installed, the contractor needs to weigh the pros and cons of both roof repair and replacement.
Excluding cost, there are four things that need to be considered and assessed during an inspection of your commercial roofing system before a decision can be made:
- The extent of the damage
- The location and effect that the damage has on the building
- If the owner wants a short or long-term fix
- How many interruptions the process will cause the business
Commercial Roofing Options
If your contractor feels that replacement is the best option for your commercial building, Aabco installs three different types of commercial roofing, namely:
Built-up, also known as BUR, is the most common and preferred material for low-slope roofing structures.
Its alternating layers of reinforcing fabric and bitumen offer your roofing system multi-layer protection. In addition to protection, these layers help your roof with temperature control, energy efficiency, and are water, fire, and wind resistant. This multi-layer product creates a continuous sealed surface over your roof with modern BUR including a rigid insulation layer helping with energy efficacy. BUR is then finished off with a layer of aggregate in the form of gravel or stone.
Modified Bitumen System
A close cousin of BUR, modified bitumen is an asphalt-based material that is also designed for low-slope or ‘flat’ roofing systems. With added tensile strength and durability, modified bitumen was created to withstand exposure to extreme weather conditions. Its five layers of protection make it one of the most trusted materials for ‘flat’ roofing systems today. Modified bitumen also has superior waterproofing characteristics, a range of application methods, and a proven track record of performance. Best of all, it’s quick and easy to install!
TPO, short for thermoplastic polyolefin, is one of the most common roofing types used for a big commercial roofing system.
TPO is a single-ply membrane roofing made from sheets of rubber and other synthetics. It can be attached to the insulation in a number of ways, creating a layer of protection for your commercial roof. TPO is one of the best energy-saving and fastest-growing commercial roofing systems on the market. It is known for its resistance to ultraviolet light, ozone, and chemical exposure
