TPO is short for Thermoplastic Polyolefin. For over a decade TPO roofing solutions have been a popular commercial roofing choice because of it’s energy efficiency and quick installation. TPO roofing is a lighter color material and is often used in warmer parts of the US where it’s reflective properties can reduce companies energy costs.
If TPO roofing systems are installed correctly, they can last more than 20 years depending on wether conditions. Due to it’s eco-friendly design and properties TPO Roofing Systems have saved business thousands and thousands of dollars each year.
When you need a waterproof roof which looks as good as it performs, then Single Ply Roofing may be the answer. Strong and flexible, Single Ply Roofing Membranes are ideal for flat roofs and also work well with curves and free form roofing shapes making them perfect in both commercial and domestic situations.
Single Ply Roofing membranes are primarily made of synthetic polymer, reinforced with glass fibre or polyester as required. The membranes vary between 1.2mm and 2mm thick and are jointed using hot air welding. The membranes can be fixed either by using adhesives or mechanically fixed with thermal bridge fasteners to form a continuous waterproof protection.
When properly applied, roof coatings can extend the service life of your roof by 10-15 years and, when necessary, can act as an additional waterproofing layer on your roof.
This option is versatile and at a fraction of the cost of a full replacement roof. Added benefits include reduced energy costs, lower maintenance requirements, tax benefits and ease of service.
Complete Reconstruction of your roof can be expensive and stressful. Consider consulting one of the knowledgeable representatives at SkyWay GB to find out if Roof Coating is a good restoration option for your business today.
The R-Panel Metal Roof is a low-maintenance, durable alternative to conventional roofing. It's ideal for retro-fitting over existing composition shingles, it saves time, labor and disposal costs which lower total project cost.
A metal panel roof is constructed of numerous metal roofing panels that are placed over an underlay or over an existing roof. The panels are interlocked so that water cannot leak through the seams or roof structure.
Metal panel roofing is also highly energy efficient and increases the thermal efficiency of any building in regions with high temperatures.
R-Panels & PBR Panels are designed primarily for commercial applications, but have become popular for residential homes due to all the advantages of R-Panel Roofing Systems.
Choose from many designer colors for a sleek, attractive appearance. Fasteners, closures, and custom trim pieces are also available to fit your project’s needs.
Modified Bitumen, also known as Membrane roofing or Torch Down roofing, is the traditional asphalt roofing compound to which rubber compounds and other modifiers have been added to make it more plastic or rubber-like. Depending on the substrate a modified bitumen roof system would typically consist of one, two or three ply configurations.
The biggest advantage in a modified bitumen roofing system is its resistance to rainwater which often collects on flat roofs leading to damage over a period of time. A modified roofing system allows no stagnant water to permeate and so protects the roof.
Furthermore the modified bitumen roofing is often improved with the addition of high quality resins which offers additional protection to the house from UV rays.
Built-Up Roof (BUR) membranes, also called "tar and gravel" roofs, are the most common and popular choice of roofing used on commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. Built-up roofing are used on flat or low-sloped roofs and composed of multiple alternating layers of bitumen and plywood sheets.
BUR (built-up roof) is an older type of system which include the roof deck, a vapor retarder, insulation, membrane and multiple layers of tar and asphalt material covered with gravel or gravel granules. The system is designed to provide three main components: structural, waterproofing and a surface.
The components are assembled at the job site to actually form the built-up roof. At the core of this roofing system is the roofing membrane, which consists of roofing bitumen and multiple reinforcing plies of roofing felt.
