Welcome to the wonderful podcast. Have a great, a really well known and well advertised commercial roofing company here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. And in commercial roofing, broken error. We are advanced course or systems and today we’re talking about what’s called thermal plastic membranes. That is a type of what’s called us single ply membrane. And I am the owner and founder of advanced commercial systems. And for years and years we have been, I have been and my employees as well, we’ve all been in the commercial roofing industry. And so having been in that industry for the length of time that we have a, we have got just tons of experience and tons of great, uh, product knowledge, tons of great reviews because of just the, the great successes that we have over and over and over again in the industry here in northeast Oklahoma. So if you’re in need of a great commercial roof experience, if you were just, uh, you’re wondering what your roof looks like in commercial roofing Broken Arrow.
If you’re a property owner or property manager, you know, it’s simple, it’s as simple as pie. You just give us a call here in commercial roofing broken arrow. We sit down with you, we go through everything with you and we really just spend a lot of time trying to assess what your needs are. Are you just trying to make the links go away? Are you, do you have a budget? Have you been working on putting your budget in place to take care of a full roof replacement? You know, there are times, um, that we can come in and put a single ply on top, a thermoplastic like a TPO or PVC on top of your current roofing system, which would give you just another 15 to 20 years, sometimes even more of a great system. And that we would do it at a fraction of the cost of what it was maybe for a full roof replacements.
So here at avast carceral systems, home with a roof nurse, we know commercial roofing and that, that experience and that knowledge that we have, it is our desire. It is our pleasure to share it with you, to show it with you and to allow you to understand more about the roofing structure, the water tight, uh, capabilities that you have with your commercial roof. Now the reason why we spend a lot of time talking about single plies and thermo plastic membranes, uh, which, you know, single ply is a, is a type of roofing system. Uh, it’s a, it’s just meaning a roofing system that has just a single ply on the top that creates the waterproofing system. And so they entire roofing system is based around just the ability of putting a single ply on top of it would just one plot. And then within that category you have thermoplastics and thermosets thermostats.
We’re not going to talk about [inaudible] a lot of different other kinds that you hardly ever see. And then thermoplastics are, or the topic of our discussion today on our podcast. And so our podcasts, we do a lot of podcasts talking about TPO, PVC thermoplastics, which are types of singles, a single ply membrane. The reason why we talk about these so much is the industry is absolutely going this direction. See, what happened in the industry was the industry was looking for smarter, faster solutions. And so back in the day before they were single plies, you’d get an Edm, you’d be a thermoset. Uh, which is a rubberized, uh, version of a single ply. It’s called a thermostat and stuff, a thermoplastic and that Thermostat, I mean it’s just, it’s got amazing elasticity if I remember correctly, up to 300% of its original size. Um, it can do the elasticity that we create that and so, but what we find is those roofs, there’s just a lot of troubles with them and the majority of them, they’re black and the repairs are fairly easy, but they are not as durable because they’re just basically a rubber mat and they do not have the capability of endurance that they’re first cousins.
Thermostats do inherent commercial roofing, broken air. We’re going to share with you the best roofing systems. Now we’re going to discuss some of the less challenging of the more challenging, uh, not as good roofing systems. But at the end of the day, when we sit down with you and endeavor to give you a system, we’re going to give you something that works. We’re going to give you something that you can look up to. We’re going to give you something that’s going to last 15 2025 years. Do you know I can put a TPO roof on your roof, on your building? I can put a TPO roofing system that can go 30 years with a warranty. I no dollar limit. 30 year warranty, man. Jay, I’m thinking you really think about that 30 years with an unknown dollar limit warranty. No. Let me describe, you would have no dollar is a no dollar lent.
More move limits. Warranty is specifically a warranty provided by the manufacturer or the first two years. If there’s any problems that takes place that I, the, the installer takes care of all costs and anything after that for the next 28 years. The manufacturer, because they inspected the roof while before we put it on and they inspected the roof after we installed it, the manufacturer will literally cover any cost for the roof and for labor, for the materials and for Labor to make the roof in great shape again. Now I’ve seen that with India. Ells for TPO, there are some roofs that, ah, there were 20 years old, uh, like Duro last and I called the Dura last rep and we chatted about it and I found out pretty quickly there, they said, well, it’s around 20 years old. It’s not really worth it worth us looking at.
And I really saw that they didn’t stand up behind their product. You think they would want to say, hey, let’s check the records out. Let’s see when this roof was done, let’s see what’s going on. You think that would be the case? But it wasn’t, and they didn’t even advise whether there was a no dollar limit put on the roof as a warranty when the roof was installed. They didn’t even look it up on their computers. That’s a little disturbing to me if they didn’t go that extra mile there. Um, and some of the challenges of installing those roofs and some of the different aspects of those roofs can be a little more challenging, uh, how they weld the roof at their, at their location and then ship it to you. There can be some time constraints and some challenges with the timing and stuff because of how they do that too.
Once again, today we’re talking about thermo plastics. What are the two types of thermoplastics thermosets and uh, PVC and TPO are the two main thermoplastics that we’re going to talk about. What’s the difference between PVC, not PVC and commercial roofing? Broken Arrow is basically for the most part made of the same product. Um, that you see polyvinyl chloride that you see PVC pipes made for, uh, for your home or for your building. You see a white PVC pipe. When you walk around Home Depot or Lowe’s, you see a white PVC pipes sticking out of a roof. Have you ever thought about those white PVC pipe? Sometimes they get painted dark, you know, because they’re on a colored roof. Um, they’re sticking out of a roof and they can send it there for 20, 30 years, 40 years, 50 years. It’s made out of PVC. It can handle the sun, it can handle UV.
It’s a great product. Now, does it have some slight minor deterioration because of sun? Absolutely. Just very little. And so we make a PVC roof that we can install that is a thermoplastic. And that PVC roof is, is, is a wonderful roof. It’s a really a great roof. But the biggest challenge with it that people don’t have an installed all the time is specifically that it’s more expensive than the TPO. So the TPO roof is basically the same thing, but it’s made out of a different product. One’s made out of PVC, that one’s made out of a thermoplastic polyolefin. And so thermo Polyolefin TPO is what the other ones might have it. And then we can get an all the chemical composition of what it is. But here in commercial roofing broken Arrow, you know, on a short podcast, that’s something that I don’t think we should be doing cause it’d be pretty boring.
And so for the most part when it comes to TPO roofing, uh, thermoplastics, the TPO is put on almost a majority of the roofs you see. But there’s one time that you really need a PVC and that is when your own a restaurant roof, a restaurant that has an exhaust fan and exhaust on the top of the roof that allows exhaust out on to the roof in which from a cooker and many times there’s tons over a period of time, quite a bit of animal fat that will leave the roof and get up on, I mean they will leave the exhaust fan and get up on the roof and that animal fat fat is not good for getting on. TPO Reus, TPO roof actually begin to chemically break down and be kin to chemically deteriorate when they come in contact with asphalt roofing products and uh, the amino acids in that of animal fats.
And so that animal fats like black and gooey and it just sticks to the roof and it just starts immediately beginning to eat. It really is, it slowly, it takes some years to really eat it good. But over just three or four years, you can definitely, definitely see how it’s just eating holes through it. So here at advanced commercial systems, home of the roof of hers.
