Commercial roofing requires far more careful consideration than their residential counterparts. That is one reason the options are far more complex. The Roofing Company takes a look at four of our most popular commercial roofing options to help you choose the right one.


Built-Up Roofing

BUR—as it is normally referred to—is one of the most common commercial options you’ll find among the best roofers in Norfolk, VA. It is always composed of three components. The first is the felt, which serves as the backbone of the roof. It is bound together by bitumen, which is typically asphalt or tar. Rounding it all is the top layer of surfacing to further protect the roof from damage.

Modified Bitumen

Essentially an evolution or offshoot of BUR, this roofing option focuses on a specialized bitumen. There are two types available, and each brings a specialized look and feel. APP features a more plastic appearance while SBS looks rubbery. Both options offer enhanced durability and resistances. Most notably, this roofing option also incorporates smoother surfacing, which is perfect for flat roofs with a lot of traffic.

Single-Ply EPDM

This is a durable factory-made material. What makes it particularly strong is the use of reinforcing materials in their production. Single-ply EDM is a good option because it’s easy to install, as it doesn’t require surfacing. The thickness of the layers is customizable, as well.

TPO

Much like EPDM, TPO is factory-made and produced in sheets that are easily installed. The specific processes that produce this material make it even more durable. TPO features UV and flame-resistance, weatherproofing and much more. The installation process covers up any seams in between, making them virtually leak-free.
