Types of Roofing Materials We Use | Kirberg Company

Roofing Materials

Kirberg works with many different types of roofing materials. Find more about these materials and their roof systems to discover how they can improve your roof.

When you select a roofing system for your home or your commercial building, you should understand the benefits of each material and system type.

Why Do Material Types Matter for Your Roof?

Roofing materials matter because they determine what type of maintenance your needs. For example, if you want a tile roof, you’ll most likely install a steep sloped roof and you’ll have to make sure its tiles don’t crack or break. Contracting Kirberg is a great way to maintain your slate or tile roof because our skilled craftsmen know how to install and maintain these roofs while keeping their individual pieces intact.

On the other hand, TPO and EPDM roof membranes are flat or low-slope roof materials, and they need to be checked periodically for punctures and torn seams. Additionally, if you want a flat roof that can handle large amounts of foot traffic, you should choose a built-up roof (BUR). When you partner with Kirberg, we can help you determine which material will best suit your home’s or building’s needs.

Below are some of the materials Kirberg installs and works with.

Slate and Tile

Slate and tile roofs can last for over 100 years if they’re properly installed and maintained. These materials are commonly used on residential roofs, but they can also be used on sloped roofs in the commercial sector, such as historic buildings, churches, museums, and university buildings.

Fluid Applied Roof Coatings

We use these coatings as flat roof materials to help restore our customers’ roofs. When we use a fluid applied coating, we apply it directly to the existing roof. This application reduces the time and effort required to restore your roof, while also maximizing its lifespan.

EPDM Roofing Membranes

These single-ply roofing membranes are primarily used for commercial roofing, but we can also install them on flat residential roofs, including patio and garage roofs. It’s a lightweight and cost-effective choice for your flat roofing system.

TPO Roofing Membranes

This type of single-ply roofing membrane takes the benefits of EPDM membranes and amplifies them with their hot air welded construction. This construction improves their flexibility, so they’re unlikely to tear at the seams or experience punctures.

Rooftop Gardens

Rooftop gardens, also known as green roofs, allow your roof to become a green space that manages stormwater intake and reduces carbon dioxide emissions. You can design a green roof that acts as a park or a community farm within an urban space, or you can design it as an ecological landscape that needs little to no long-term maintenance.

Built-Up Roofing

Built-up roofs have been around for over 100 years, so we use our century of roofing services to install them properly.
