THE PRODUCTS WE PROUDLY USE

PVC & TPO

Roof Systems

 

An Industry

Standard Solution

 

WHAT IS A PVC ROOF SYSTEM?

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a trusted membrane that has been providing decades of waterproofing protection in Europe and North America. PVC’s popularity stems from its dependable, heat-welded seams, high reflectivity, superior physical attributes and resistance to water, chemicals, grease, fire and punctures.

EXAMPLES OF PVC ROOF SYSTEMS

THE BENEFITS

01 / PVC is highly resistant to tears, impacts, and punctures to ensure the service life of the roof maintains it's longevity.

02 / PVC is incredibly resistant to chemicals, chemical fumes, grease, acids, oils, and many kinds of fuels. This is a huge benefit for more industrial applications and environments needing the extra protection PVC provides.

03 / PVC is considered “cool” as a result of it's white color which makes it reflective and resistant to the sun’s heat and ultraviolet rays. Buildings with reflective roofs can stay cooler inside and save on air conditioning costs.

TPO Roof Systems

 

Highly Resistant,

Flexible & Energy Efficient

 

WHAT IS A TPO ROOF SYSTEM?

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a single-ply reflective roofing membrane made from polyprophylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymerized together. It is typically installed in a fully adhered or mechanically attached system, allowing the white membrane to remain exposed throughout the life of the roof.

EXAMPLES OF TPO ROOF SYSTEMS

THE BENEFITS

01 / TPO is highly resistant to tears, impacts, and punctures yet remains flexible to allow for building movement.

02 / TPO’s flexibility allows for a rapid installation and requires little maintenance throughout its life. TPO membranes are commonly fully adhered or mechanically attached to the underlying insulation or cover board.

03 / A light colored roof that reflects the sun’s energy can play a significant role in reducing the buildings cooling costs. It also offers benefits to the surrounding environment through a reduction of the urban heat island (UHI) effect.

EPDM

Roof Systems

 

A Commercial Rubber Roofing System You Can Count On

 

WHAT IS A EPDM ROOF SYSTEM?

Ethylene propylene diene monomer, better known as EPDM is a versatile rubber roofing membrane that has been used in the low-slope commercial roofing industry for over half century. EPDM offers a variety of installation options and numerous long term benefits, such as superior weatherability, exceptional wind uplift resistance, extreme flexibility and more.

EXAMPLES OF EPDM ROOF SYSTEMS

THE BENEFITS

01 / EPDM is virtually immune to ozone, UV radiation, and harsh temperatures. With the presence of carbon black fillers within the membrane, UV radiation is absorbed and converted into heat, to which the membrane resists very well.

02 / With little or no maintenance required throughout the life of an EPDM roof, and a competitive installation cost, EPDM roofing systems result in a very low life cycle cost.

03 / EPDM elongates over 300% to accommodate building movements in climates worldwide. EPDM is an inert material with limited environmental impact during manufacturing, installation and use. EPDM is also fully recyclable.

BUR & Modified Bitumen Roof Systems

 

Built Up (BUR)

Roof Systems

A Classic But Effective Approach

To A Roofing Solution

 

WHAT IS A BUR ROOF SYSTEM?

Built up roof membranes, referred to by the acronym BUR, have been in use in the U.S. for more than 100 years. These roof systems are commonly referred to as "tar and gravel" roofs. BUR systems generally are composed of alternating layers of bitumen and reinforcing fabrics that create a finished membrane. Built-up membrane installation for commercial roofing systems can either be hot applied or cold applied using modified asphalt.

EXAMPLES OF BUR ROOF SYSTEMS

TYPES OF BUR ROOF SYSTEMS

BUR roof systems come in two basic types, asphalt and coal tar, and three basic components: the waterproofing component, the reinforcing component, and the surfacing component which is used to protect the other components from the elements.

Modified Bitumen (MB) Roof Systems

 

A Heavyweight Solution That

Can Take The Punch

 

WHAT IS A MODIFIED BITUMEN SYSTEM?

Polymer-modified roof membranes are composed of reinforcing fabrics that serve as carriers for the hot polymer-modified bitumen as it is manufactured into a roll material. MB roof system membranes are composed of multiple layers, much like BUR membranes. MB roof systems typically are installed as a two-ply system and almost always are fully adhered.

TYPES OF MB ROOF SYSTEMS

The two general types of polymer modified bitumen membrane systems are Atactic Polypropylene (APP) and styrene butadiene styrene (SBS). Each of these polymer-modified membranes differ in their chemical characteristics. Both types are heavyweight membranes reinforced with either polyester, fiberglass or a combination of both.
