Why Choose Emmons for Your Commercial Roof Replacement?
All roofing systems have a life expectancy. After 15 years, roofs can develop problems that may require a complete replacement. Between the decking, external covering, pipes, and vents, a lot can go wrong over time. Don’t wait for a leak before you have your building’s roof inspected. Our expert commercial roofers can examine each of these elements to determine whether a roof replacement is the best solution.
Emmons Roofing & Siding knows that a commercial roof replacement can be a major undertaking, especially on larger buildings. We do everything we can to meet your budget and can even work with your insurance to find any assistance. Financing plans for your roof replacement project are also available! We always use the highest quality roofing materials, such as Owens Corning and CertainTeed, and provide full workmanship and material warranties.
Types of Commercial Roofing Materials
Unless you work in the roofing industry, it’s easy to be unsure of how roofing materials affect your commercial roof replacement. With that said, every roofing material has distinct advantages and disadvantages. At Emmons Roofing & Siding, we proudly use EPDM, TPO, metal roofing, asphalt shingles, and built-up roofing materials. Here’s an in-depth look at each of the commercial roofing materials we offer.
EPDM (Single-Ply Rubber)
Ethylene propylene diene monomer, otherwise known as EPDM, is a synthetic roofing membrane made from rubber. What makes EPDM or thermoset roofing a great choice is that it’s resistant to acids, pollution, sunlight, and alcohol. It’s also easy to install and can last up to 50 years or more. This commercial roofing material is available in either black or white rolls.
If you want a roofing material that’s lightweight and heat reflective, consider TPO, or thermoplastic polyolefin. TPO roofing is also resistant to many elements, including fires, oils, fats, and bacterial growth. It can even withstand certain kinds of punctures. This type of commercial roof also features air-welded seams, making it helpful for withstanding high winds and extreme temperatures.
Built-Up Roofing (BUR)
Built-up roofs consist of layers of gravel and tar. The durability your building receives and the cost you pay depend on how many layers of BUR you need. These roofs can withstand both heat and UV rays from the sun. They’re also quite flexible and can withstand a decent amount of foot traffic. The one major disadvantage with a built-up roof is that it only lasts about 20 years.
Standard Asphalt Shingles
Asphalt shingles remain popular for a commercial roof replacement because they’re available in a wide range of colors and textures. Many business owners like the traditional appearance of asphalt shingles. Another advantage is that they’re affordable. They feature surface granules that help these shingles withstand the sun’s rays and harsh climate conditions.
Made from asphalt, architectural or dimensional shingles are also available in many colors and textures. However, they’re more expensive than standard asphalt singles. With that said, the thickness and weight of architectural shingles ensures they’ll continue to protect your building for years to come.
Metal Panel Roofing
Metal roofing is an extremely popular option for commercial buildings because of its durability. Depending on how well they’re maintained, metal roofs can last for 40 to 60 years. Plus, metal commercial roofs are also more fire-resistant and sustainable than other popular types of commercial roofs.
No Matter the Type of Roof, We Have You Covered
Emmons knows that there are many styles and shapes of commercial roofs. No matter what kind of roof is covering your building, our team of experts can replace it.
You’ll often find flat roofs on commercial buildings. As their name implies, flat roofs have little to no pitch. Instead of shingles, the best materials for flat roofs are synthetic rubber, thermoplastic, or layers of asphalt with a gravel coating.
Gable / Peaked Roofs
This type of roof is popular throughout NJ and PA. Gable or peaked roofs are easy to recognize with their triangular shape. With a steep pitch, these roofs are easily able to shed snow and water. Plus, gable and peaked roofs are also easy to maintain.
Cross Gabled Roofs
Cross gabled roofs feature two or more rooflines that intersect with each other at a right angle. This type of roof can have similar heights and pitches. It’s not uncommon to see cross gabled roofs featuring varying heights and steepness levels. If a gabled roof has seams, roof flashing will be necessary to repel water.
If you want a more stable type of gabled roof, a new hip roof might be the right choice. A hip roof slopes on all four sides. Each side of a hip roof is equal in length. These sides meet at the top to form a flat ridge. Hip roofs are great for areas hit with lots of wind and snow. Plus, almost any roofing material is suitable for this type of roof.
Mansard and Gambrel Roofs
Mansard and Gambrel roofs feature two different types of slopes. These types of roofs have a low upper slope with a standard pitch. The lower slope features a much steeper angle, making it almost a vertical slope. Mansard roofs have four sides while Gambrel roofs have two sides.
Other Commercial Roofs
Many roofs throughout the Delaware Valley use a combination of multiple roof styles. When it’s time to replace your roof, we consider every factor relating to your roof’s style. If you have any questions, one of our commercial roof replacement experts will be happy to answer them.
