4 Choices Of Commercial Roofing Material

Are you looking for commercial roofing services in Oklahoma? There are actually several materials you can choose from to make your roof waterproof and resilient. Here are four of those materials.

Built-Up Roofing

This type of roofing consists of several layers of different materials. The roofers alternate layers of felt and bitumen. The felt adds extra insulation, and the bitumen is a glue-like substance that helps hold the layers together and make them waterproof. Then a surface layer is applied on top of the layers for greater protection.

Modified Bitumen Roofing

This roofing is similar to built-up roofing, but it uses a combination of bitumen and asphalt for added strength and adhesion. Also like built-up roofing, the surface layers can be grainy or smooth.

EPDM

This is a rubbery roof coating membrane that is applied in strips. It comes in 45 or 60 mils of thickness. Once it is laid out, the seams are sealed with a special tape or other waterproof adhesive. This type of roofing is best for flat or low-slope commercial roofing.

Thermoplastics

Thermoplastics (like PVC and TPO) are like a beefed up version of EPDM. Thermoplastic is extremely protective because it has welded seams that are very good at preventing storm damage.
