In Kansas City, it is common to find several different types of commercial roofing. Below are some of our most requested roof types that tend to have the longest life and most cost-efficient applications:
Thermoplastic roofing, or TPO for short, is one of the most popular options in the Kansas City commercial roofing industry. Long lasting and durable, a TPO roof is made from a sophisticated, pliable synthetic material that handles stress well. TPO is less likely to corrode or break from adverse weather conditions or daily wear and tear. TPO is designed to handle intense UV exposure and high temperatures. During the summer this type of roof will sustain less damage through heat exposure. A TPO roof is ideal for flat commercial roofing applications such as offices, warehouse buildings, industrial complexes, corporate campuses, apartments, hospitals, schools and many more.
Much like TPO roofing, or EPDM for short, is a well-constructed plastic that offers expanded installation potential because of its composition and application flexibility in many different circumstances. EPDM roofs are weather resistant and ideal for adding more waterproofing properties, with built-in protection against leaks and moisture intrusion. This can save you thousands of dollars in repairs. Due to its synthetic surface, EPDM roofs have a life expectancy that exceed many other similar roof types on the market.
Solar panels in Kansas City, or PV panels, are an excellent choice for your roof. Photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of any commercial property can save you hundreds of thousands in energy expenses over the roof's life-span. They are clean energy emitters, producing a positive environmental output. Our solar panel roofing solutions can be installed on a wide range of surfaces, including tile and glass, and can be integrated into flat or sloped roofs. By installing enough solar panels on your commercial roof, it's possible to make your business entirely energy self-sufficient. This roof option is great for your wallet, and for environmental aspects. You may find that your panels produce more electricity than your property can use and your utility company may buy back the excess electricity, allowable by law.
You may not have seen a green roof on a commercial property in Kansas City, but they are becoming more popular and are proving to be financially viable. Think of a Kansas City green roof as a rooftop garden, as layer of vegetation would cover the roof. Rather than producing fruits and vegetables, green roofs produce negative carbon impact, taking pollutants out of the air and converting them to clean oxygen. Green roofs are also great because they act as natural insulation, keeping heat in during the winter and cool in during the summer.
