Edit, dance commercial systems home with a roof nerds in commercial roofing broken arrow. We are professionals at single ply membrane roofs. This is a roofing system. It is created from the production of a single layer of a roofing material. One of these is EPD em. This is normally a black roofing rubberized product. The actual name is ethylene propylene dying monomer, e. P. D. M. Another type of single ply roofing system or membrane is PVC. PVC roofing system is also a very, very thin, normally 60 or 80 meal single ply membrane system. It’s actual name is polyvinyl chloride PVC.
The most popular type of roofing system that has been installed over the last 10 to 15 years is a thermoplastic polyolefin. That roofing system called simply TPO period. TPO roofing systems are 45 male, 60 mil, 80 male, 90 mil, and oftentimes you can find what’s called I fleeced back TPO roofing system. This can come in 100 Mil, 115 meal and 135 male. These are the normal thicknesses that we find. This is basically the 45 meals, 60 mil and 80 mil standard TPO roofing membrane with a fleeced back or fleeced backing glued to the bottom of the scrim of the TPO membrane. This is a great way to be able to fully adhere a roofing system down because the fleeced material will soak up and thread itself inside of the roofing glue and cause it to set up with eight really great pool resistance strength.
I would say the widest range of TPO systems that we install can very easily fit your budget and the facility needs that you have of your commercial building and commercial roofing, broken Arrow, single ply roofing membranes are well known on all types of commercial roofing systems. These sheets or synthetic looking rubber sheets can be ballasted with gravel or paving stones, often referred to Jeff simply as ballasting stones. These roofs can be held down as ballasted or they can be mechanically fastened to which is very popular because that is commonly the most cost efficient type of installation and fascinating. Then you could have adhered or fully adhered many times it. That is just the terminology for chemically adhering to the installation in which the installation has been mechanically fastened. Do the decking or the installation could have been mechanically adhered by glue to the decking as well.
PVC systems are very similar to TPO systems. They often look the same. They are reinforced membrane when you give or get 60 mil and higher. We recently due to the building owners request installed 200 squares on a commercial building in the Greater Tulsa area with commercial roofing broken arrow. The TPO, single ply membrane that we installed was only a 45 mil membrane. It was not reinforced with us Graham, which causes it to not have as much 10 south strength. We normally do not suggest using this type of membrane, but at that time the building owner was looking at only keeping the building for 10 more years and wanted to do this project with as little money as possible in which we did not install installation. We merely lay down a fan fold, half inch cover board layer separator as a post substrate material. Okay. And then we installed through my chemically fashioning with plates and screws, the 45 mil TPO membrane. We installed versa TPO, but oftentimes we will install g a F TPO as well in commercial roofing, broken arrow. Just keep in mind some of the positive aspects of single ply roofs like that that we’ve been talking about are their flexibility and they are really, really easy to install. It doesn’t take a lot of roofing science for the installation because of most of the roofing science has been added into the equation of the chemical compound of the single ply membrane. We can guarantee and warranty these roof systems between 10 years and 30 years depending upon the roof system installed and depending upon the weather and surrounding conditions.
But just keep in mind that this is a single ply roofing system, so there isn’t a lot of strength when it comes to punctures and damage. Right. I’ve been on many of these roofs and seen screws and knives and screwdrivers and two by fours and four by fours punch holes in these single ply membrane systems because people working on Hvhc, the units are often neglected.
Now let’s talk about another type of roof system called a built up roof system. In our industry and just in the general public and commercial roofing broken Arrow, this roof system is often referred to as a tar and gravel roof. These systems were years ago created by adding different types of layers of bitumen and felt like materials directly on a roof system in which this created a top finished membrane for the roof system. These systems, depending on the number of layers of vitamin and felt are often very strong and can handle much punch your strength. The good part of this type of roof system is that it is generally designed to be very fire resistant and a little more cost efficient. These roofs, depending on the system, can add many years from 10 to 25 years of life to your roof system. However, one of the bad aspects of this roof is that it doesn’t look as neat as many other roof systems and a bond installation. There is a strong odor that is omitted.
One of the oldest types of commercial roofing systems is that of metal roofing. Over the years. Metal roofing consistently stays very popular in all roofing systems all throughout the country and especially in commercial roofing. Broken Arrow, corrugated galvanized steel is one of the top items often used for commercial roof systems. Aluminum and tin can be used well, but normally not quite as much as corrugated galvanized steel in Korean commercial roofing, broken arrow. This roofing material is normally quite lightweight per square foot or per square, and the good thing with this root system is it can often be installed right over the top of an existing roof system and over time if needed, a roof coating can be added for extra waterproofing strength and also prolonging rush protection and UV tolerance. The good aspects of this roof is they are generally the lightweight and extremely, extremely durable in commercial roofing, broken arrow.
