Make sure you wear your sunglasses when standing on a TPO roof. TPO has a brilliant white surface that has been shown to reflect up to 78% of heat from the sun, reducing the cost of cooling and air conditioning in your commercial building. The top-tier reflectivity of TPO also reduces the heat build-up under the roofing membrane.
We challenge anyone to try and tear Mule-Hide TPO. It is virtually indestructible to abrasion, impacts, or tearing. There is more product on top of the scrim where it matters; Mule-Hide offers the thickest top ply in the industry. If somehow you are able to damage this innovative system, the TPO membrane remains repairable year after year, allowing for ease of future cutouts, alterations, and tie-ins. TPO is very easy to clean due to its hydrophobic nature, and will remain looking like new for many years. TPO provides the highest resistance to fire, UV, airborne bacteria, and industrial pollutants, such as air-conditioning coolants, than any other commercial roofing application for flat roofs. SPC is also a green company, so the fact that Mule-Hide’s TPO contains no chlorine to reduce toxins in our environment is an extra benefit.
Modified Bitumen Roofing, often just referred to as ‘modified roofing’, is a premium commercial option. This type of low-slope roofing material is referred to as modified bitumen due to its material makeup, which consists of modifiers that are added to standard roofing asphalt in order 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. A standard SBS-modified bitumen roof system is a two-ply system applied in rolls that overlap the edge of the previous roll. The other type of modified bitumen roof is the APP (atactic polypropylene), which is used for its ability to increase the aging capabilities of the roof system. SBS is often the more popular system as the synthetic rubber additive increases the product’s flexibility.
Built-up roofing provides multiple layers of protection against water intrusion.
Built-up roofing is a centuries-old roofing practice that utilizes more than one layer of water-proofing membrane to keep the water out of your building.
Built-up roofing systems, often referred to as BUR, have been utilized in the U.S. for over 100 years. These systems are incredibly reliable and waterproof, as they’re field fabricated with layers of bitumen alternated with reinforcing felts. Commonly referred to as “tar-and-gravel” roofs, the built-up systems’ redundant layers give it exceptional resistance to water and weather.
Metal roofing is a staple of the commercial roofing market because of the material’s outstanding durability, design flexibility, and low life cycle costs. More and more commercial, industrial, and small building owners are selecting metal roofing for a portion of, or the whole, roofing assembly, such as banks, schools, restaurants, warehouses, distribution centers, etc.
Metal roofing and wall panels are a great low-maintenance solution that provide commercial-grade performance while still enhancing the aesthetics of the building. Metal roofing panels tend to be easier to install and allow for design flexibility, which can be an appealing option for most commercial building owners, as they can save time on installation and provide the option to customize your structure to fit specific design needs.
Standing seam roofs have distinctive vertical patterns with clean lines and hidden fasteners that many people find more attractive on residential, agricultural, and commercial buildings. You can find them covering entire roofs, or as architectural accents covering bay windows, dormers, verandas, and porches. There are many inexpensive options when looking to replace your roof. However, if looking to make the most out of your investment, a standing seam metal roof could be the right choice. Read on to find out more about the advantages and disadvantages to determine if it is right for you.
