Types of Roofs
State of The Art EPDM Roofing
EPDM has gained industry-wide acceptance and respect by providing immediate and long-term roofing solutions. In use for several decades, EPDM roofs are single-ply membranes and have evolved into one of the most sustainable and popular commercial roofing options available today.
ROOF MASTERS EXPERTS IN EPDM ROOFING
Lightweight, relatively inexpensive and easy to install, this advanced rubber material is easy to work with and produces minimal odor and fumes, making it a favorite of both property owners and contractors.
Don’t take a chance on a roofing company that has little or no experience with EPDM installation. Roof Masters specialists apply EPDM roofing in large rolls of ethylene, propylene and diene polymers that are adhered, mechanically fastened, or ballasted to form a waterproof bond.
Almost every structure requires a roof. But the question is what type of roof is best for your project? All roofing systems have their own advantages or disadvantages and it is important to know what you need in a roof. You may have noticed that most of the commercial roofs in Hallsville are flat.
Here are some of the main reasons flat roofs are so popular:
- Maintenance – a flat surface makes it easier and safer to work on
- Easy access – flat roofs are typically connected by a stairwell, making it easy to bring the necessary equipment with you or to use the roof as a storage space. For some businesses this also gives the option of having more space to entertain clients or customers by turning the space, or part of it, into a deck for customers to enjoy the outdoors.
- Lower cost of installation– Flat roofs are usually quicker to install than other roofing systems, saving you money.
- Greater Fire Safety – As the structure is made with steel rather than wood there is a higher fire safety rating.
- Best use of space – From floor to ceiling, flat roofs allow you to use all the space.
- Great for HVAC – you can place your air conditioner and/or heater on the roof. Which is usually impossible for slanted roofs.
As we can see there are many benefits to flat roofs, making them a very practical option for a wide variety of roofing projects.
Roof Masters LLC EPDM roofing systems are incredibly durable and puncture resistant and are built to withstand extreme weather conditions for up to 25 years.
Ecological Green Roofing
An increasingly popular and environmentally conscious option for both residential and commercial buildings, the vegetation that covers a green roof actually lowers energy costs, improves air quality and naturally absorbs storm water thereby reducing the need for expensive drainage systems. With a longer life span than conventional roofs, Roof Masters green roof installations also address a condition known as “Urban Heat Island Effect”, occurring in densely populated urban and suburban areas.
Traditional building materials such as asphalt, tar, and gravel trap and produce intense heat making it more difficult for property owners to keep buildings cool and contribute to increased temperatures in Longview and surrounding regions. Green roofing systems supplement vegetation and provide an additional natural living space.
Not Just A Trend
Not all roofing contractors are able to provide the necessary expertise required for installing a green roofing system. With an increasing tendency toward “going green” in Longview, environmentally friendly roof installations are best carried out by an accredited green roofing contractor knowledgeable in the many factors involved for successful and sustainable roof application
