Varied Options For Commercial Roofing

Commercial Roofing options vary, depending on the slope of the roof, the location, and the type of building. Flat roofs, for example, are ideal for gravel and tar roofing, although other options are available. The location is a factor in choosing the right roof to ensure it will hold up to the elements, such as high winds, extreme cold or heat, humidity, and heavy rain. The use of the building is also important to consider when replacing a roof. A large retail store or a mall, for example, will not need the same type of roof as factory, a loading dock, or a manufacturing facility.

Modified bitumen roofs work well for flat roofs or for those with a low slope. Metal roofs are cost-effective and energy-efficient. Some roofs, like ethylene propylene diene monome (EPDM), for example, are leak proof and come in flexible sheets of engineered synthetic rubber. These are quicker to install and save businesses money on labor costs. Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofs are also an option, as are solar roofs.

A number of coatings can be applied to Commercial Roofing to prolong the life of the materials and increase the energy-efficient properties. Most are inexpensive and easy to have applied. Elastomeric coating is one that is poured onto the roof and restores leak protection when it dries. Metal coatings are used to prevent rust and essentially make the roof maintenance free. Reflective coatings help keep factories and facilities cool inside by blocking the rays of the sun from being absorbed by the roof. This coating helps reduce cooling costs and is recommended for buildings that operate machinery.

An accurate estimate helps businesses decide upon which type of roof to have installed. Free estimates are offered by many roofing contractors, but some are more accurate than others. Experienced contractors, like those found at Arrowroofingandsiding.com, train their team of estimators on specific products available and what installation procedures entail for each type of roofing. That ensures the most accurate estimate possible, so there are no surprises once the roof is installed. Many estimates come complete with a price list that include materials, approximate hours of labor, and a time table.
