Commercial roofing

Modified Roof

Modified bitumen (mod bit) is an asphalt-based roofing system. As an asphalt derivative, modified bitumen is extremely durable, weather-resistant, and low-maintenance.

There are three primary installation methods for modified bitumen roofing:

  • Peel & stick
  • Torch-down
  • Cold process (adhesive backing).

All modified bitumen is manufactured in sheets for ease of transport and installation.

TPO Roof

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a single-ply reflective roofing membrane made from polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymerized together. This is a good option for warmer climates such as Alabama, as TPO membranes reflect UV radiation to keep the surface of the roof and the building cool. Not only does this reduce cooling costs, it also decreases the amount of carbon emissions.


EPDM is a durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane commonly used in low-slope buildings. Its two main ingredients — ethylene and propylene — are derived from oil and natural gas. It’s available in black and white and its thickness ranges between 45 and 60 mils.

EPDM withstands exposure to UV light as well as extreme temperatures, and it is flexible. It expands to accommodate building movements.

Roof Coating

This is a monolithic, fully adhered, fluid applied roofing membrane with elastic properties that allows it to stretch and return to its original shape without damage. It’s very durable, weather resistant, flexible, highly reflective, and environmentally-friendly.

Metal Roof

Metal roofs are made of durable metal pieces or tiles characterized by high resistance, impermeability and longevity. It reflects heat away from the building, is lightweight, and comes in a variety of shapes, colors and types.

A Word on Single-Ply Roofing Membranes

Single-ply membranes are one of the most popular commercial and industrial roofing materials for flat roofs. This type of roofing consists of sheets of rubber or other synthetics that are chemically adhered or otherwise fastened to create a layer of durable, energy-efficient protection for your new roof.

TPO, EPDM and PVC single-ply membranes that have adhered seams. However, there are some differences. TPO and PVC roofing have different chemical formulas that result in slightly different performances and service lives, but both are excellent materials to protect your commercial building’s roof as well as EPDM membranes.

How to Decide Which Type of Commercial Roofing Materials Are Right for You

First things first: You don’t have to decide which type of roofing materials are right for your building just yet. In fact, you should absolutely talk to a commercial roofing expert before you try to make a decision – some commercial roofing materials may not even work with your building, or they may not be the right choice based on your building’s function or style. It’s a good idea to talk to a roofing contractor who can lay out all your options and explain what’s available before you decide.

After your roofing expert explains your options, you can make your decision based on:

  • Some commercial roofing materials cost far less – or far more – than others do.

  • Other nearby buildings. It’s worth finding out what types of roofing materials other buildings in the area have, especially if you want to see how well a particular material might stand the test of time. Additionally, it may be about aesthetics; if you have the only restaurant or store on the block with one type of roof and every other restaurant or store has something else, yours may look out of place.

  • Size and slope. Your commercial building’s roof’s size and slope will help you determine what materials are right for your needs. Some types of materials can’t be applied to a sloped roof, while others don’t make any sense on a flat roof.
