Types of Flat Roofing Products Ideal for the Connecticut Climate

TPO membrane commercial flat roofing product installation

If you’re looking for a high quality roof to place on your newly purchased commercial property in Connecticut, there are plenty of choices you can consider. However, not all of them will be able to withstand the local climate and temperature conditions as you might want them to. Some types of flat roofing are more susceptible to damage from snow and wide temperature differences, so you’d have to work a lot more on maintaining them over time.

There are two types of flat roofing products that are considered by most contractors to be ideal for Connecticut: TPO and EPDM roofing.

EPDM is a strong type of rubber membrane roofing material that is known for its durable properties and lower than average cost. With an EPDM roof, you don’t have to worry about leakage, pooling, temperature differences or complex repairs and replacement processes.

TPO is also a type of membrane roof, and it has some of the qualities of EPDM roofing, including the ability to reduce pooling and leaking. However, TPO can also have energy saving qualities, and it’s lightweight and flexible, which makes it great for withstanding impact and weather-related damage more easily.

As an added choice, you can also opt for metal panel roofing to avoid higher costs and difficult commercial roofing Connecticut maintenance problems. However, you still need to be careful of metal products that rust or require slightly more complex repairs when they are damaged.
