Top 5 Commercial Roofing Systems

With so many roofing solutions on the market, it’s hard to know which one is best for your commercial property. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the best choices available today. Of course, it’s important to speak with a roofing contractor in Minneapolis, or a licensed contractor where you live, to discuss the pros and cons for your particular structure.

BUR – Built-up Roofing
Consisting of alternating layers of reinforcing materials and a waterproof binder covered with gravel, BUR provides weather durability, a long lifespan and waterproof performance at a cost-effective price.

EDPM – Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer
This thermoset roofing membrane can either be fully adhered, mechanically fastened or loose laid with a river rock surface. EPDM is ideal in tough climates and weather conditions as it is durable against hail and UV damage, can resist any temperature or climate and won’t shatter in a freeze.

PVC – Polyvinyl Chloride
You’ve probably seen PVC used for drainage pipes but it also happens to be an excellent material for roofing. PVC offers a wide range of benefits including energy efficiency, enhanced chemical and UV durability, and puncture and damage resistance. PVC is also a long-lasting roof with a lifespan of 20 to 30 years.

Sheet Metal
Sheet metal has been used in construction for over a century — and for good reason. It’s durable, cost-effective, and can also be an attractive roofing option.

TPO – Thermoplastic Polyolefin
This single-ply roofing solution is the most commonly used commercial roofing. TPO can provide longevity, durability, energy efficiency, and wear-resistance well worth the investment. TPO can last up to 35 years and is extremely flexible as well as offering temperature durability.
