Commercial Roofing Systems | Titan Roofing & Construction

If you’re planning to install a new roofing system on your commercial property, you’ll soon encounter an explosion of three-letter acronyms and other unfamiliar industry jargon. It gets confusing very fast!

What are the most common roofing systems for commercial properties, and what sets them apart? Join us for a closer look at the most popular options.

TPO Roofing

TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin), a flat roofing system shipped in long rolls, has seen a boom in popularity in recent years. Here’s why. In the hands of trained roofing professionals, TPO is easy and quick to install. Its reflective layer bounces heat right off your building so that you can look forward to lower energy bills — and because TPO is sturdy and durable, you’ll be all set for the next 30 or so years.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is another common commercial roofing choice, and its exceptional lifespan of around 50 years tells half the story. These roofs are delightfully low maintenance and can be made from aluminum, steel, and copper, among other metals. With added reflective roof coatings, metal roofing can slash utility bills while contributing to a greener way of doing business.

Although these roofs are mainly installed on sloped commercial buildings, they’re an option for flat roofs, too. Commercial building owners can consider a variety of designs, including panels and metal shingle roofing, to achieve a sleek look.

Spray Foam Roofing

Businesses with flat or low-sloped roofs can also think about spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing, a lightweight, flexible, and highly moisture-proof system. With these commercial roofing systems, your roofing contractors spray two layers of foam onto your roof’s surface. Its flexibility makes SPF roofing great for businesses with complex layouts and unusually-shaped roofs, and these roofs are built to last for decades.

EPDM Rubber Roofing

EPDM (rubber roofing) is another flexible membrane-based commercial roofing system installed in huge sheets. Although these roofs do require regular maintenance, they can last 20 to 30 years with the proper care. With the addition of commercial roof coatings, these naturally dark roofing sheets have the advantage of being extremely energy-efficient.

PVC Roofing

These sturdy and reliable roofs, strengthened with materials like fiberglass or polyester, can resist chemicals and fire to keep your building safe. This makes PVC roofing systems an excellent choice for manufacturing facilities. PVC roofing is ideal for flat and low-sloped roofs and can last around 30 years.

Shingle Roofing

While flat commercial roofing systems are great for schools, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and similar buildings, some businesses are based in buildings with sloped roofs. If your building could also serve as a residential home, asphalt shingle roofing is another obvious choice to consider. Asphalt shingles are beautiful, inexpensive, durable, and available in a wide variety of styles.
