Commercial Roofing: 40 Years Experience

Commercial Roofing:

Most low-slope commercial roofing systems consist of three principle components:

Weatherproofing layer or layers — the weatherproofing component is the most important element because it keeps water from entering a roof assembly.

Best Roofers Layton

Reinforcement — reinforcement adds strength, puncture resistance and dimensional stability to a membrane.

Surfacing — surfacing is the component that protects the weatherproofing and reinforcement from sunlight and weather. Some surfacings provide other benefits such as increased fire resistance, improved traffic and hail resistance, and increased solar reflectivity.

Our expertise in commercial roofing systems feature roof membranes that perform multiple functions.

Shingled Roofs, Shingle Roof Repairs: Residential, Commercial

Need a new roof or replacement roof? But you are on a budget? For re-roofing on a budget, but still taking pride in your home's weather protection and beauty, shingled roofs provide the best of both worlds-weather protection and "pocketbook" protection.

While maintaining an attractive look and weather tightness of your home, asphalt composition shingle roofs may be your easiest answer.

While not as durable and long-lasting as some of the other premium roofing materials, asphalt shingles can provide enough protection against the weather elements, while still displaying style, beauty and aesthetic appeal-all for a fraction of the cost.

Shingle Roof Questions:

Why Do I Need A Felt Layer Under The Shingles?

The asphalt felt layer under the shingles provides several functions;

  • The felt is water resistant, and acts as a secondary protection against wind driven rain.
  • Felt protects the shingles from resins of roof decking materials.
  • Felt is a required component in meeting Class A or Class C fire ratings.

How Long Do Asphalt Shingles Last?

The lifespan of asphalt shingles depends heavily upon the grade of the shingle and the environment. They are available in grades that last for anywhere between 20-50 years and beyond. However, hot climates (such as our Utah climate) tend to prematurely damage asphalt shingles.

The worst climate conditions for shingled roofs are when temperatures reach 100 degrees during the daytime, and then drop to below 50 degrees at night. (Thankfully, those days rarely occur in Utah.)

Asphalt shingles don’t have the time to properly expand and contract, and cracks begin to develop in the material.

Still, during the snowy, cold, icy Utah winters, water can get into the cracks, and expand as it freezes. This causes the already existing cracks to become even bigger. Asphalt shingles thus do best in climates that have fairly steady temperatures - not too cold in the winter and not too hot in the summer.

However, because they are economical and affordable, asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material by both homeowners and contractors.

Flat Roofs: TPO, EPDM, Low Slope Roofing

Flat Roofs have been a part of Utah homes and American architecture for hundreds of years. Advances in building materials have helped to extend the life of flat roofs, and extend the time frame between flat roofing repairs.

Roofing Company Layton

Leaking Flat Roofs

A main reason for failure of these traditional flat and low-slope roofs is lack of maintenance, or failure to notice where people or events cause the rupture, tear, break or holes in the material (tar paper, gravel, etc.). This exposes it to weather and sun, producing cracking and blistering over time, and eventually leaking moisture and water inside the home or building.

One problem with maintaining flat roofs is that if water does penetrate the barrier covering, it can travel a long way before causing visible damage or leaking into a building where it can be seen. Consequently, it is not easy to see where it is leaking in order to repair it. Once underlying roof decking is soaked it often sags, causing a further collection or "puddling" of water in that area, making the problem worse.

Another common reason for failure of flat roofs is lack of maintenance of drains. Gravel, leaves and debris block water outlets (for example, around spiggots, drains, downpipes and gutters). This collected water cannot drain away, and consequently builds up. The deeper the water, the greater the pressure. This forces more water into the tiniest of cracks or holes. When the Utah winter climate arrives, puddling water freezes into ice, breaking up the roof surface, as it expands and freezes.

EPDM Roof Materials

EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, a type of synthetic rubber. EPDM was used in roofing materials, particularly on flat, low slope roofs, because of its outstanding heat, ozone and weather resistance. The cold Salt Lake City and Utah winter weather seasons made EPDM a quality choice for flat roofs in the past.

TPO Roof Membranes For Flat and Low Slope Roofs

Especially since 2002, TPO roofing material has superceded EPDM as a flat and low-slope roofing membrane.

TPO (short for Thermoplastic Olefin or Polyolefin) are single-ply roof membranes constructed from ethylene propylene rubber. They combine the durability of EPDM rubber with the proven performance of hot-air weldable seams. They have been tested as having excellent resistance to ozone, are algae-resistant, environmentally friendly and safe to install. The material's manufacturers are so confident in properly welded seams that the material is sometimes advertised as a monolithic (seamless) roof. Seam strengths are reportedly 3 to 4 times those of EPDM's adhesive and tape seams.

TPO is highly resistant to tears, impacts, and punctures with good flexibility to allow for building movement.

TPO membranes are installed with glue bonding chemicals for full adhesion. This means the glue forms a chemical bond between the membrane and sub-roof surface. These flat roof membranes can also be mechanically attached, using some type of special screw-type fastener to secure it. The type of fastener depends on the type of sub-roof surface.

Properly installed TPO roof systems have service lives ranging above 30 years, depending on the type of installation. Full removal of the existing roof, the amount of slope the roof has, weather conditions, as well as several other criteria contribute to the longevity of a roof's service life. Typically, if you remove an old roof down to the deck before installing a new one, then the new roof will last longer. Also, the steeper the slope and the less severe the weather conditions, the longer a roof will last. High winds and hail can do a roof in rather quickly.

TPO and EPDM Advantages:

  • Green, eco-friendly. EPDM rubber roofs are made out of recycled materials, making them environmentally friendly.
  • Reduces cooling and heating bills. EPDM rubber reflects the heat of Utah summers, and insulates against the cold of Utah winters. making it economically friendly. This helps keep your air conditioning, swamp cooler and furnace bills down.
  • Waterproof. EPDM is a great material for keeping water away from your housing structure.
  • Long lasting. TPO Roofs typically last 30 years and more.
  • Fire resistant. EPDM rubber roofs are fire retardant. They are also ozone and UV stable, making the materials themselves nonperishable.
  • Repairs are done simply and inexpensively, since they can be concentrated on just the hole, tear or puncture, without having to disrupt larger areas of the roof.
  • Limited seams. Since it can be purchased in widths as much as 50 feet, you can "wrap a roof with virtually no seams, virtually “shrink wrapping” your entire roof.
  • Flexible. It shifts with your house, as your home settles over the years.
  • Variety of colors. You can select from a variety of colors and shades, making rubber roofs compatible with your exterior home decor.

TPO and EPDM Challenges:

  • TPO and EPDM roofing are not "Do-It-Yourself" roof projects. Working with rubber roofs requires experience. Trained professional roofers in flat, low slope, EPDM and TPO materials should be hired for such work.
  • Roof structures pose sealing challenges. Piping, HVAC units, chimneys, and vent stack lines all pose an additional threat to the integrity of your rubber roof. These are the areas where you are most likely to see leaks. Proper flashing and sealing procedures cannot be "short-cuts", or roof leaks will probably ensue later.
  • Rubber can be easily damaged by a falling branch, satellite dish, or foot traffic. Although it is easy to repair, sometimes it can be difficult to find the exact location of the leak, especially if the hole, tear or break is minimal.

The best advice is to call us. We are professionals, with over 40 years of flat roofing expertise. We make sure the TPO roofing membrane is from a quality manufacturer. Trust our years of experience for the finest quality flat roof installation.
