Unlike, residential roofing, commercial roofing is customized to meet different commercial use as they involve extended use that covers great building sizes. Bell Roof Company offers the best types of commercial roofing. Therefore, when in the process of constructing a new building or replacing a new roof replacement in an existing building it is essential to understand the variety on commercial roofing;
Probably, the fastest growing commercial roofing as its properties that involves thermoplastic membranes changes temporarily from solid to semi-solid when heated enabling the sheets or roofing panels overlapped to fuse together and regain their solid nature upon cooling. This allows that the water is properly drained and that the roofs last for a very long time.
This thermoplastic roofing is preferred due to their durability, high-temperature tolerance and low-temperature flexibility and inherent fire resistance. Moreover, they are very easy to repair as they are also highly puncture and impact resistant. Additionally, their installation is easy, and they come in different colors that can withstand rooftop installation and contamination.
Photovoltaic solar panels
With energy costs rising tremendously, most property developers and owners have opted for environmental friendly photovoltaic solar panels that turn solar energy into both heat and light energy. As a result, partial or full commercial roofing systems are covered by PV solar panels that absorb sunlight and transform it into power energy for use within the commercial set up. The PV solar panel roofing uses glass and roof mounted tiles or membranes that save the commercial property energy high costs and still covers the property fully such that the roof creates synergies and ensures waterproof and well-drained roofing.
This type of commercial roofing uses extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membranes mostly installed in low slope buildings. EPDM roofing occurs both in black and white and covers huge spaces when installed. The roofing systems are sealed with liquid adhesives which ensure that the rooftop is well sealed without any possible leaks. EPDM roofing offers a smart roofing that is UV resistant, flexibility, and durability.
A green roof or a living roof covers the building partially or completely with vegetation cover, planted on a waterproof membrane. Green roofs are used to add aesthetic value to the property as well as provide an environmentally friendly appearance to the property.
Moreover, green roofs are preferred since they are inexpensive to maintain, absorb and use rainwater as well as provide the required insulation that ensures that the building remains leak proof. Most commercial establishments also prefer it since it increases agricultural space, filter pollutants and acts a natural habitat in an urban wilderness.
