Most Common Reroofing Types

Major re-roofing projects, commercial and industrial typically consist of a complete tear-off, a go-over and metal retrofits.


Single-Ply Roofing Systems

Single-ply roofing systems can help lower your building’s energy costs.

Single-ply roofing systems are a reliable and energy efficient roofing product that will lower your facility’s overall costs and provide longevity to your roofing system. The three main types of single-ply membranes include TPO, EPDM, and PVC.

TPO roofing systems are often a popular choice for commercial roofs because of their white color and corresponding reflective properties, reduction in energy costs, and their durability in all climates, which leads to savings in maintenance expenses.

Built-Up Roofing Systems

Built-up roofing systems are time-tested against water intrusion and well known for its self-healing properties.

Built Up Roofing (BUR) is one of the oldest and most reliable commercial roofing systems for low-slope or “flat” roof structures. Commonly referred to as “tar and gravel” roofs, BUR consists of layers or plies of roofing felts, between which asphalt or bitumen is applied. Its multiple layers provide added protection and perform well in punishing weather conditions. Built-up roofs are especially resistant to damage from wind, hail and sun.

Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems

Modified Bitumen roofing systems are one of the most time-tested roofing products on the market. It can be installed with one or multiple layers, depending on the roof’s substrate.

Modified systems should be installed on roofs with not less than ¼” slope in order to achieve positive drainage. When installed in single layers, a modified roof system typically lasts 12 - 16 years.
