TPO roofing systems offer flexibility, versatility, and high performance. TPO is the fastest-growing commercial membrane roofing system around and is on the forefront of single-ply roofing technology. It’s engineered for superior, long-term performance and offers the added benefit of being environmentally sound. Those who’ve used and installed it find that its advanced reflectivity dovetails nicely with cool roofing solutions, helping to keep their storage facilities, warehouses, and working environments more cost efficient.
For years, low-slope metal roofing has been a favorite roof covering for commercial and industrial buildings because of its reliability against weather conditions. However, many building owners are recognizing some of the additional benefits to this high-quality option. Offering excellent durability and a sustainable footprint, metal roofing can extend the life cycle of your roofing system, offer a visually appealing exterior to your facility, and provide low maintenance requirements.
No contractor has more experience installing EPDM than Texas Roof Master. We’ve installed literally hundreds of millions of square feet of EPDM membrane. Our services are available in every state. And no one works harder to earn the reputation as the country’s most trusted and respected commercial and industrial roofer than we do.
Modified bitumen is a very durable product, especially in high-traffic areas and when confined to smaller roof areas with a high density of service equipment. The flexible nature of the “modifiers” allows owners to select a roof that is a thicker product and more resistant to building movement and metal-to-membrane interfaces than a built-up roof (BUR) system.
Tiles offer a diversity that other roofing materials simply can’t match. They come in an extensive range of profiles to suit any style of architecture. Tiles are all about flexibility, choice and individuality. For instance, if you’re looking for clean crisp lines that’ll deliver a streamline finish, then Monier’s Horizon tile is the choice for you. Alternatively if you’re classically inspired a Modern French tile from the Terracotta range would be ideal.
Although flashings bridge transitions in the roof, when not sealed properly they are ineffective. Flashing is designed to turn corners and breaks in a roof, which tend to have more movement than other areas. If not sealed properly, flashings do little to stop water from entering the roof system.
Starter strip shingles are used to seal the first row of perimeter shingles and prevent wind uplift. When starter strip shingles are omitted or not installed correctly, strong winds have an opportunity to lift the first row of shingles and cause the “domino effect”. This has led to entire roofs being blown off during hurricanes. Proper sealant may not be installed. As a temporary measure the first row can be lifted and sealed. When it comes time to replace your roof make sure your contractor uses specially designed starter-strip shingles to keep your roof’s warranty and prevent system blow-off.
During roof installation it’s easy for installers to forget about proper pressure setting on their nail guns. In most cases too many roofing nailers are hooked up to a low volume compressor and the air supply is not sufficient to drive each fastener fully. At time of installation only the severe “high nails” are noticeable. When the asphalt shingle seals to itself a tight bond is formed. “High nails” begin to protrude through the top surface of shingles. Rusting and seepage can occur. It is also possible for the roof’s underlayment fasteners to uplift.
Asphalt does not hold up to direct UV exposure. Shingles use small colored stone chips called granules to protect the asphalt from environmental elements and to provide an esthetically pleasing look. Over time these granules wear off. When this happens the asphalt surfacing starts to break down causing a downward turn in the shingle’s life. This is the reason why it is not recommended to pressure clean a shingle roof. Pressure dislodges the granules from their asphalt embedment. We have found improper ventilation to be a major cause of premature granule loss. It is also important to keep overhanging trees trimmed so they don’t brush off granules.
Steel metal flashings exposed to the elements can rust over time. Today’s flashings are made of galvanized metal, a process that protects the steel core from rusting. Rusted flashing may be a problem of your roof. Rust cannot be simply sealed over, as it will continue to grow. The rust needs to be cut out and a new flashing installed, then sealed properly. Since the rust is open to the surface and flashings are vital to the integrity of your roof system, we recommend repairing the rusted flashing areas before seepage causes structural damage.
Hail Damage: Often in high wind events we see the corners of shingles tear. This is common on contractor grade shingles. Sometimes a tree branch or flying debris like hail in your area may impact a shingle causing damage. Third party damage is another issue. As people walk across the roof they can cause damage. Damaged shingles leave the underlayment showing, accelerating roof wear. If you have broken surfaces on your roof from high winds, flying debris or hail damage, call Roof Depot today!
