Commercial Roofing for Any Situation
Multiple Commercial Roofing Types
At Roberts-McNutt, we have roofing styles for any type of business, structure, and situation. Our commercial roofing styles include BUR, EPDM, Garden, Metal, PVC, and TPO. Each of these styles offer superior protection and aesthetic for your commercial building. One of the first steps to installing quality roofing is to determine which of our beautiful styles is suitable for your Little Rock building. This can be done by one of our roofing experts during a routine maintenance run, which we offer to ensure that your roof is performing optimally. Upon completion of our maintenance check, we present you with a report containing any issues found and recommended repairs. Some roofs do require full replacements and for those we will list out what options we believe to be best.
A Brief of Commercial Roofing Styles:
- BUR: Built-Up Roofing or BUR is a fairly standard style of commercial roofing that has been used for centuries. It binds together several layers of gravel, felts, and fabrics or mats using bitumen to form a waterproof roof that prevents leaks, mold, rot, and other damaging discrepancies.
- Modified Bitumen: This option is very similar to BUR in that it’s installed in multiple plies to provide multi-layered protection. The difference is that the roofing sheets are modified with rubber or plastic to provide it with greater flexibility. This makes it better at handling extremely low or high temperatures.
- Metal: A tried and true method of roofing or commercial buildings, metal roofing can be used for both flat and pitched roofing. The greatest advantage of metal roofing is its prolonged lifespan followed closely by its incredible strength. Additionally, metal roofing’s high reflectivity make it ideal for those that want to conserve energy in their commercial building.
- Garden: This style of roofing incorporates plant life on the top of your building. It’s suitable for most existing roofs and should consist of a growing medium installed over a waterproofing membrane. It’s best to also have a root barrier and drainage and irrigation system installed as well in order to avoid costly damage. Garden roofs (Green roofs) include increased curb appeal, energy efficiency, noise reduction, and several other benefits.
