The Best Materials Recommended by Commercial Roofers

Commercial Roofing Building

Commercial roofing may not be as complex as residential roofing, but it still comes in different types. The materials are typically chosen according to the commercial buildings’ needs as well as the owner’s budget.

Commercial roofers are your best source of information in choosing the best materials. Nowadays, they frequently recommend thermoset (EPDM) membrane and thermoplastic (PVC & TPO) membrane, taking into account factors like the durability of the roof, local climate and energy efficiency.

Considering that the type of roof that you install on your commercial property plays a big role in the building’s overall health, you must choose carefully, keeping in mind the recommendations of the professional roofers.

Thermoset (EPDM) Roof Membrane

This commercial roofing CT option is currently the most durable. It performs great in any climate, provides great resistance to sunlight and emissions, it is highly flexible and easy to install.  An EPDM roof can last even 50 years, being also recyclable, at the end of its life span. Maintenance requirements are rather low, so EPDM roofing is very convenient.

Thermoplastic (PVC & TPO) Roof Membrane

TPO and PVC roofing systems are also great choices, being resistant to adverse conditions (solar exposure, chemicals, bacterial growth etc.). Although they are not as resistant as EPDM roofing, they have an advantage that EPDM membranes do not have: they are reflective, which makes them more energy-efficient during the summer, when they contribute to reducing the building cooling costs.
