Commercial Roofing Systems From Delta

roof repair | Commercial Roofing Systems

While commercial roofing systems are designed to protect the structure below them, they’re very different. Commercial roofing is generally low slope to flat, allowing for easy access for foot traffic when it’s time to maintain on-roof equipment like heating and cooling equipment. Building owners don’t need to understand all the ins and outs of commercial roofs just to choose the right one. 

Delta Innovative Services has the experience and knowledge to create watertight commercial roofing solutions for most commercial structure types. We have numerous flat roof systems for commercial buildings and can guide you to the right one. 

Our teams are certified to install the top-rated commercial roofing materials available from manufacturers like GAF, Hydrotech, and Tamko Building Products. Let our experienced installation team guide you to one of the more sustainable options from Derbigum’s Performance Roof Systems or Versico Roofing Systems.

Types of Commercial Roofing Systems

Built-Up Roofing (BUR)

  • Picture layers of thick, sticky material and fabric stacked on top of each other like a sandwich. BUR roofs are tough and great at keeping water out, often used for flat or gently sloping roofs. You will see this come up again when we talk about roofing materials!

Modified Bitumen Roofing

  • Imagine adding some extra stretchiness to those layers in BUR roofs. Modified bitumen roofs are like BUR but with added flexibility, making them better for flat roofs that might move or shift a bit. We will talk more about this roofing material down below!

Single-Ply Roofing

  • Think of a giant, strong sheet of material laid over your roof like a blanket. Single-ply roofs are light and easy to put down, great for slightly sloped or flat roofs where you want something simple but reliable.

Metal Roofing

  • Imagine covering your roof with big, sturdy metal sheets. Metal roofs are super durable and come in different styles and colors, working well for flat or sloped roofs that need extra toughness.

Green Roofing

  • Picture a garden growing on top of your building! Green roofs have plants and soil on them, acting like a natural blanket that keeps your building cool, reduces rainwater runoff, and helps the environment.

Shingle Roofing

  • Think of the roofs you see on most houses, with those small, overlapping pieces of material. Shingle roofs aren’t as common for commercial buildings, but they can still be used, especially on parts of flat roofs that aren’t completely flat.

Types of Commercial Roofing Materials

A basic understanding of the many types of commercial roofing materials we install here at Delta will help you narrow down your options. Today’s commercial grade roofing materials are longer lasting than ever before while also reducing heating and cooling costs.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Roofing

One of the most popular forms of single-ply roofing used on commercial buildings today, TPO roofs boost energy efficiency and are easy to maintain. This roofing solution works on all sorts of low slope roofs thanks to the use of heat-welded seams that can handle large volumes of water without leaking. The single-ply membrane combines both EPDM and polypropylene materials that are bonded together with polymerization. The material is easily installed in a variety of ways, including under ballast or with full mechanical attachment.

Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) Roofing

Also known as rubber roofing, EPDM is a durable and flexible material that lasts 20 years or more before needing replacement. It’s also one of the most affordable options for protecting a large commercial structure. Lasting up to 35 years, EPDM roofing is popular for being one of the single-ply roofing options. This leads to a quicker and lighter installation than multi-layered materials. Hail, snow, and other extreme weather conditions aren’t a challenge for this kind of commercial roofing.

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Roofing

Easy to install thanks to its flexibility and ease of welding or adhering, PVC is a great option for buildings that need a reflective or light-colored roof. It offers good fire resistance for facilities where open flames or heat sources are in use as well. If you want a standing seam appearance, it easy to install this membrane stretched over ribs to help guide water flow during heavy storms. This material is one of the greenest options for commercial roofing systems because the PVC can be recycled into new roofing membranes. PVC is also very lightweight and rarely requires any modifications to support the material.

Modified Bitumen Roofing

Single-ply commercial roofing may make up the majority of commercial roofing installations today, but they’re not always right for every structure. Modified bitumen roofing involves the application of multiple layers of self-adhesive sheets or hot-mopped asphalt materials. It’s one of the only roofing options for commercial buildings that we can install year-round in all sorts of outdoor temperatures. This makes it a valuable option for building owners who don’t want to wait months for the right conditions for installing other types of commercial roofing materials.

Built Up Roofing

At one point almost all commercial low slope roofs were covered with built up roofing. Also called a tar and gravel roof, this kind of covering can last for decades but requires a structure that can support its weight. It can have surprising effects on your long-term energy costs because the thicker layer of roofing reduces heat loss through the roof. Reflective granular coatings keep your facility cooler over the summer. Built up roofing can take a little longer to install than other methods.

Metal Roofing 

This type of roof is often recommended for commercial structures and works well for low slope installations. With the right coating and occasional maintenance, this kind of roofing can last 50 years or longer before needing replacement. Some commercial metal roofing systems also integrate extra insulation under the surface to further reduce heat transfer through the material. It also helps with the sound issue, which is more of a concern with occupied spaces like hotels than storage buildings like warehouses.
