Common Roofing Systems

Built-Up Roofing Systems

  • Less Puncture Resistant
  • Excellent Weather-ability
  • Resists Rooftop Abuse
  • Time Honored System

This traditional roofing system incorporates the application of multiple layers of insulation boards with the base layer mechanically attached into the substrate with subsequent layers placed in hot asphalt. Multiple plies, alternating fiberglass felts and hot asphalt, are then applied. The system is finalized with either a flood coating hot asphalt, hot asphalt & gravel, or a modified cap sheet.

Coated Roofing Systems

When your goal is simply to extend the life of a building’s roof, a roof coating may be the most effective, economical solution. Acrylic coatings can be used over single-ply membranes, built-up, modified bitumen, metal, polyurethane foam, concrete, board stock, asphalt and more. The resulting roof is monolithic, 100% adhered to the substrate with no seams, fasteners or adhesives. It will have high reflectivity and emissivity ratings in support of Cool Roof initiatives with resulting energy savings. What’s more, fluid-applied coatings are normally expenses as a first year maintenance cost from your taxes rather than capitalized, which can result in significant tax benefits for your company.

Metal Roofs

Metal Retrofit Roof Systems

  • Long Term Warranty
  • Excellent Waterproofing
  • Accommodates Building Movement
  • Added R-Value From Insulation
  • Lightweight

Insulation board stock is loosely placed in the metal panel flutes of the structure. Polyisocyanurate insulation or fiberboard is then mechanically attached into the existing metal structure. A single ply membrane system of choice can then be applied in either Mechanically Attached or Fully Adhered fashion. Mechanically attached systems require fastening into the structural purlins.

Metal Roof System

  • Update Building Exterior
  • Durable
  • Energy Efficient
  • Versatile

Standing seam, R-panel or corrugated metal panels are mechanically attached to the existing structural purlins. These systems are generally installed in place of an existing metal roof system.
