Also know as Modified bitumen roof systems can be installed with the common torch method, asphalts, or cold adhesives. A standard SBS modified bitumen roof system is a two-ply system applied in rolls that overlap the edge of the previous roll.
Modifiers are added to standard roofing asphalt to replace plasticizers removed during the distillation process. Bitumen is reinforced with fiberglass or polyester fiber matting in order to increase durability and strength. The two most common types are SBS and APP. The use of SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) increases the flexibility of the membrane and allows it to have stronger expansion and contraction capabilities. APP (attactic polypropylene) increases the aging ability of the roof system. SBS is often the more popular system as the synthetic rubber additive increases the products flexibility.
• Very durable
• Weather resistant
• Easy to repair
• Factory manufactured rolls are easier to install and ensure quality control
• Flexible, expands and contracts
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a single-ply reflective roofing membrane made from polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymerized together. It is typically installed in a fully adhered or mechanically attached system, allowing the white membrane to remain exposed throughout the life of the roof, it can also be installed in a peel & stick system.
TPO roofing membranes are highly attractive in regions with more cooling degree days – when cooling equipment is used – than heating degree days. TPO membranes reflect UV radiation keeping the surface of the roof and the building cool during summer months. This helps reduce cooling costs, and also decreases the amount of carbon emissions.
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States and worldwide. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas.
EPDM is available in black and white and its thickness could be 45 and 60 mils. It is typically installed in a fully adhered or mechanically attached system. Their seams can be sealed with either EPDM liquid adhesive or special EPDM tape
A roof coating is a monolithic, fully adhered, fluid applied roofing membrane. It has elastic properties that allows it to stretch and return to their original shape without damage. Typical roof coating dry film thickness vary from paint film thickness (plus or minus 3 dry mils) to more than 40 dry mils. It can be silicone base or acrylic. Silicone is reccomended in areas where there is water ponding.
A metal roof is a roofing system made from metalpieces or tiles characterized by its high resistance, impermeability and longevity.
