A-1 Property Services provides expert roofing systems for commercial and industrial buildings throughout the Fort Lauderdale region of South Florida. Low slope roofing systems are designed with the same basic principles, yet it can be difficult to choose from the variety of materials available. Choosing a roofing system for your property can be overwhelming if you don’t know the pros and cons of each option; here are 4 smart choices to consider for your low slope commercial roofing system.
PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, is a highly reflective and durable single-ply membrane proven to work well in Florida’s warm climate. It offers simple installation and heat-welded seams that make it an economical, long-lasting roof for a variety of commercial applications.
TPO is short for thermoplastic polyolefin. It is a comparable alternative to PVC with very high roof surface reflectivity. Read more about TPO membrane here.
Like PVC and TPO, EPDM is a durable, single-ply roofing membrane with a proven reputation for durability. However, EPDM is a rubber compound rather than plastic. The seams on an EPDM roof are treated with adhesive, which means they will eventually require maintenance to remain waterproof.
Perhaps the most common and economical residential low-slope roofing system, modified bitumen is installed in rolls and either heat-applied or adhered to the surface.
Low-slope roofing is designed to withstand heat, moisture, oil, chemicals and foot traffic, and even boost energy savings by reflecting sunlight. These systems can last from 10-30 years, depending upon the type and manufacturer.
