Ready to find out what it takes to do the job right?
Certified by GAF and Firestone, Springtree Restoration’s commercial roofing team works on everything from local business buildings to churches, restaurants, REC centers, small retail centers and more.
One size definitely does not fit all when it comes to a roof, especially in commercial roofing. That’s why our team uses the latest technology to design the commercial roofing system that best meets your specific needs. From flat roofing systems to sheet metal, we have the experience and know-how to get the job done right.
The process begins with a roofing system analysis, to determine your roof’s condition and all of your project’s unique requirements.
Commercial Roofs We Produce
Roofs, over time, take abuse. Be it the weather or the wildlife, roofs require maintenance. There are many different ways to install a roof to promote self-sustenance, whether through perilous weather or precipitation. For example, roofs that slope—or pitch—help contribute to shedding excess water. Additionally, shingles form like fish scales, allowing for water movement down one direction (with the help of gravity).
That said, flat roofing is entirely different. They don’t readily shed water like sloped, shingled roofs do. In fact, flat roofing slopes—which are extremely low—typically measure between 1/4″ to 1/2″ per foot. Because of this, they are specifically designed to withstand standing water (for a limited time). This type of surface is referred to as a monolithic roof surface.
Springtree Restoration specializes in two main types of flat roofing systems: membrane—or single-ply (TPO)—and modified bitumen roofing.
TPO roofing is one of the fastest-growing systems for flat roofs, especially for commercial buildings. It stands for thermoplastic polyolefin, but doesn’t actually consist of plastic. TPO is a type of rubber; usually a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene. It’s a single-ply roofing membrane that covers the surface—forming a reflective shield. TPO roofing is gaining popularity among building owners not only their durability, but also their affordability.
Springtree Restoration offers this excellent, cost-effective membrane. It’s suitable for all types of single-ply systems, with guarantees of up to 30 years. Furthermore, it’s thin quality allows for flexibility and offers long-lasting potential for any commercial roof. Because of the advanced TPO technology, benefits include withstanding extreme weather conditions—making this product an energy-efficient leader of the industry.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
When it comes to modified bitumen roof systems, there are several methods of installation. For instance, the time of year and type of building helps determine which method is best for a particular project. The three most common methods are:
- Torch down
- Cold adhesives
More recently, manufacturers have been developing self-adhering (SA) products (they’re great for cold weather applications). Standard modified bitumen systems contain a two-ply system.
Typically, project professionals add modifiers to standard roofing asphalt to replace plasticizers. These are removed during the distillation process. Bitumen is then reinforced with fiberglass—or polyester fiber matting. This step increases durability and strength. The benefits of modified bitumen roof systems are:
- Weather resistance
- Easy to repair
- Factory-manufactured rolls are easy to install and ensure quality control
- Flexible, able to expand and contract
The two most common types of modified bitumen roofing are styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) and atactic polypropylene (APP). One of the main functions of SBS is increasing the flexibility of the membrane. Along with this, providing stronger expansion and contraction capabilities. APP helps by improving the aging process—and ability—of the roof system. Of the two, SBS is usually the more popular system. This is because its synthetic rubber additive increases flexibility.
Any of these roofing systems can be the superior decision, depending on the roof and commercial building. Springtree Restoration specializes in both TPO and modified bitumen commercial flat roofing systems for any project.
