Every building has its own unique needs, which is why it’s crucial to invest in the right roofing system. Some excel at resisting heavy impacts, while others provide better energy efficiency. Your choice should not only be based on the cost but on your local climate and the nature of your business, as well.
As the roof and gutter installation expert, Kidd-Luukko Corporation can help you with this. We are experienced in major types of commercial roofing systems, including the following:
Modified bitumen exhibits most of the features of built-up roofing, yet it is known for ease of installation. It combines asphalt with plastic and rubber additives, which are layered between sheets of fiberglass or polyester. It stands up well to tears, punctures, high foot traffic and extreme temperature changes.
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
PVC roofs are membranes comprised of thermoplastics reinforced with a heavy-duty polyester scrim. They are a great choice for manufacturing facilities because they are resistant to chemical damage. They also come with hot-air welded seams that create a watertight bond. This makes the roof exceptionally durable.
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
EPDM is a synthetic rubber membrane made from recycled materials. It holds up well against water, wind, ultraviolet rays and other harmful elements. In fact, even 30-year-old EPDM membranes have been proven to possess high-performance qualities that exceed other roofing systems. Since it’s flexible, it shifts as your building settles throughout the years.
While asphalt shingles are a typical choice for residential properties, they also work well on commercial buildings with steep roofs. We recommend GAF’s Timberline® shingles because of their impeccable strength and timeless beauty. They boast the ultra-dimensional look of wood shakes, which gives your exterior a dramatic statement.
Metal roofing is one of the best long-term solutions. It’s impervious to nearly anything, from heavy rains to strong winds, and only needs minimal maintenance. Furthermore, it’s highly reflective, which helps reduce heat transfer. It’s available in a variety of colors and profiles to match your building’s design.
