Types of Commercial Roofs

Look at the different types of commercial roofing systems we offer, then let us know which one you’d prefer for your commercial building.

If you need to install a roof on a new building or replace the roof on your existing facility, you need to choose the type of roof for your building’s design and operations. Kirberg Company installs flat roofs and sloped roofs for commercial buildings, so we have the flexibility to meet your commercial roofing needs. Let’s go over what you should know about the different commercial roofs we work with and install.

Commercial Flat Roof Types

Flat roofs are cost-effective and practical roofing solutions for commercial buildings, since they are easier to maintain than pitch roofs are. Some building codes also require commercial facilities to have flat roofs so they can house HVAC units and other utility equipment. We work with many different types of flat roofing membranes and systems, including the following:

Other Commercial Roof Construction Types

While some places have building code regulations that limit the types of roofs on commercial buildings in their areas, not all do. If you have more freedom to choose a commercial roof construction type, we can offer additional options. If you’d like a commercial sloped roof, we can install a slate or tile roof for you. Slate and tile roofing systems have long lifespans, and they are known for their durability. If you want to give back to the environment, you could install a green roof, also known as a rooftop garden, which can absorb stormwater and add a greenspace to your facility. Also, if you want to take advantage of renewable energy, we can install solar panels on your roof.

EPDM Roofing Membranes

EPDM, which stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, is a single-ply rubber roof membrane that has become a very popular flat roofing material in recent years. They owe their recent popularity surge to their easy maintenance and their resistance to ultraviolet light and various harsh materials commonly found on flat roofs.

TPO Roofing Membranes

Thermoplastic Polyolefins, or TPO, roofing membranes are also single-ply roofing systems, and they have become one of the most commonly installed commercial roofing materials and systems in recent years. This type of system resists weather damage as well as mold and dirt buildup. They also resist UV rays extremely well.

Built-Up Roof (BUR) Systems

Built-up roofs, also known as BUR systems, consist of gravel and asphalt, and they’ve been used in roofing for over 100 years. They have multiple layers to them, so they can absorb building stress and foot traffic while resisting punctures and thermal shocks. If you need a highly durable, multi-layered commercial roof, a BUR system may meet your needs.
