Types Commercial Roofs

There are a number of types of roofing materials that can be used on a commercial roof. There are pros and cons to each. These are the most common commercial roof types in the West Palm Beach and South Florida area.

3 Commercial Roof Types Used in Florida

Modified Bitumen (MBS)

A modified bitumen membrane (MBS) roof is a system developed by combining the qualities of a Built-up-Roof (BUR) system within a multi-ply roof.

A modified bitumen membrane is composed primarily of polymer-modified bitumen reinforced with one or more plies of fabric such as polyester or fiberglass.

A layer of asphalt or gravel is can be applied to the top. This is often called "Torch Down Roofing".

Flat Membrane Roofing

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) roofs are the most popular commercial roofs in use today.

Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM) roofs are highly resilient and popular for low-slope roofs. They are being used less frequently lately for a variety of reasons.

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) roofs are the original heat-welded single-ply roofing systems that have been around for 50 years.

Metal Panel Roofing

Metal roof systems can be considered the best overall choice for performance and durability.

Metal Roofing can be a very cost effective solution, as it will last a lifetimewhen properly installed. Metal Roofing Panels are very durable and require minimal maintenance.

Metal roofing systems can withstand hurricane winds exceeding 140 mph, when installed properly.

State Certified for Palm Beach County

Most built-up roofing is comprised of three parts: bitumen material, ply sheets, and one or more surfacing materials like gravel or asphalt. 

This type of roof uses asphalt modified with other agents that will enhance the asphalt properties. The two most common modifiers are atactic polypropylene (APP) and styrene butadiene styrene (SBS). SBS modifiers forms a polymer bond within the asphalt resulting in qualities similar to rubber and combats the effects of aging and weather.

The most common ways to set SBS sheets are cold-process adhesives or hot asphalt.

The most common application method of APP sheets is to use a torch to make the underside melt into the substrate to form a waterproof bond when cooled.

Long Lasting

MBS Roofing has an average life expectancy of 15-30 years. Some can last up to 40 years!

Fire Resistant

The top asphalt or aggregate layer provides a good measure of fire protection.

Although we do not recommend EPDM for new installations, we are seasoned experts at commercial roof restoration and commercial roofing repairs of existing EPDM roofs on commercial buildings.

PVC – PVC Membranes are reinforced with polyester or glass-fiber mats or scrim. PVC sheets contain plasticizers and stabilizers, as well as other additives to impart flexibility and achieve other desired physical properties.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are the most common commercial roofing questions we get asked. Hopefully they will answer your questions too. If not please contact us and we will personally answer your question. 

Any good reputable roofer will give a 5-10 year workmanship guarantee on new roofs, and up to 20 years manufacturer’s warranty.

Repairs are complicated to warrantee, it’s like trying to put a guarantee on a used tire, you just can’t. Usually repairs are good for up to 1 year.

You’ll know if the repair was done correctly after the first heavy downpour that comes. If the repaired area doesn’t leak, it likely will not again.

Probably the most important thing to know is that the underlayment is the most important part of a roof. Tile/Shingle/Metal will only be as good as the underlayment underneath. Make sure your roofer is using a great underlayment, and ask for optional upgrades.
