Here are the most common types of commercial roofing that we can install for you:
Easily the most popular choice for a commercial roofing material, sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) is especially good for low-sloped and flat roofs. It is applied as a liquid, which provides a completely seamless covering over your roof, keeping any moisture, dirt, or pests from sneaking in.
Some of the advantages to foam roofing include: - Environmentally-friendly as it reflects heat and requires little to no upkeep. - Durable so you don’t have to worry about it being damaged by storms or weather. - Light-weight which helps avoid the need for heavy structural support. - Affordable to apply in terms of both labor and material costs.
Although tile roofing may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about commercial roofing solutions, it’s certainly an option that many business owners are choosing because of its attractive and unique appearance.
Some of the advantages to tile roofing include: - Durable, so much so that they typically last up to 50 years. - Fire resistant which means limiting your liability. - Great drainage so any water that falls on it will keep moving. - Insect- and rot-resistant so you don’t have to worry about those types of damage to your roof.
Built-Up and Flat Roofing
Great for large commercial roofs that are low-sloped or flat, built-up roofing is actually a technique that has been around for a number of years. This type of flat roofing is made up of a base sheet, several layers of fabric, a layer of cement or tar, and a surfacing component that are all laminated together.
Some of the advantages of built-up roofing include: - Versatility as it can be used on nearly any type of roof. - Durable as it can not only withstand weather, but also foot traffic, and often lasts beyond its expected lifespan. - Cooler as you can add reflective materials that limit the heating effects of the sun.
Although much more commonly seen on residential housing, there are plenty of businesses that prefer using shingle roofing. Shingle roofing is made of asphalt and can come in both single and double-bonded shingles to offer better protection for your commercial building.
Some of the advantages to shingle roofing include: - Versatility as they come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and styles. - Affordable because the materials and cost of installation are both low. - Lightweight which means you don’t have to worry about the load of the roof on structures.
Commercial Roofing Assessments

EPDMEthylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM) is made up of two different rubbers combined for extra strength and durability. Rubber is a great material for flat roofs because it expands and contracts as the outside temperature changes, ensuring that every crack and crevice is still covered and won’t leak. This material can be found in white or black.
TPOThis commercial flat roofing material is Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO), and is one of the newer options on the market today. However, they are gaining in popularity because they are inexpensive to install and may help you save money on energy bills as well since they are energy-efficient. You can find this durable roofing material in several different colors.
Torch DownAnother type of rubber roofing material, Torch Down is installed using torches to heat the material so it adheres to your commercial roof and fills in every crevice to prevent leaks. Like other types of rubber roofing, it protects your building through every type of Maryland weather since it expands and contracts as needed.
Flat Roof InspectionsEven if your roof is in good shape, regular inspections are an important part of keeping it that way. We recommend scheduling regular roofing inspections for your flat roof that will make sure that there aren’t any small problems that could develop into bigger ones. Generally, a roof inspection is part of maintenance that will keep your flat roof in good shape.
Flat Roof MaintenanceRegular roof maintenance for your flat roof can help save you tons of money since we can prevent some of the most common problems that lead to leaks and other types of roof damage that require roofing repairs. There are a number of things that we will do during routine flat roof maintenance to keep your roof in great shape.
Here are just a few of the things we do during roof maintenance:
CleaningMaking sure dirt, leaves, and other debris aren’t building up around drains and in gutters will help ensure that water is draining off of your roof properly rather than pooling. Pooling water can cause damage and lead to a leaky roof.
Check for Tree LimbsFalling tree limbs can easily cause damage to your roof, which is why we routinely check for overhanging tree limbs that could come down during strong winds, storms, or after a heavy snowfall. Having these removed as soon as possible could save you a lot of time, trouble, and money.
Check for MossIf there are any types of unwanted vegetation such as moss or other plants growing anywhere around your roof, this is a sign that your roof is in danger. If there’s enough accumulated water for plants to grow, then there’s enough to damage your roof.
Check InsideWater stains and other signs of water damage inside of your building on your ceilings and walls are a definite sign that there is leaking happening from the roof. This is a problem that will then have to be taken care of quickly, before it gets any worse. Give us a call to schedule your roof maintenance and an inspection today!
Flat Roof Leak RepairEven if you are facing a very small problem with your flat roof, it’s important to get it taken care of immediately. When it comes to flat roofs, what appears to be a small problem could actually be a much larger problem and it is not unusual for a flat roof to unexpectedly collapse even though it looks like it’s in good repair.
Here are three of the common problems that will require flat leak repair:
PondingWhen water is not properly draining from a flat roof, it will do something called ponding. If you notice water that is gathering in certain areas of your flat roof, give us a call immediately so we can figure out why the water is pooling and solve the underlying problem before it gets worse.
SplittingThis is the perfect example of how a small problem can become a bigger problem. When water gets into a small crack on a flat roof then freezes and unfreezes in typical Maryland weather, then that crack begins to expand until a leak forms.
BlisteringIn some types of flat roofing material, air can become trapped between the layers, leading to small air pockets forming. If that air pocket or blister breaks for any reason, it can provide a pathway for water to seep through the roof layers and into your commercial building.
