Commercial Roofing Requires Special Skills. Red Rhino has Them!

The main challenge with flat and low-slope roofs is that they can develop “pooling” of water hold water which promotes weight stress, fungal growth, and wear.  As a result, a commercial roofing system consists of special materials to fight moisture intrusion. While standard sloped roofs typically have shingles that overlap so that water slides over them, a flat roof is a continuous surface capable of holding standing water until it runs off or evaporates.

Different Types of Flat Roofing Applications

Modified Bitumen Roofing

Modified bitumen roofing (MBR) is a flexible coating, similar to asphalt shingles. It comes in rolled sheets. The sheets are rolled onto the roof atop a base sheet membrane. Modified roofing is often self-adhesive for peel-and-stick installation. It’s also lightweight and performs well in colder weather. Modified roofing tends to last from 10-20 years.

Membrane (EPDM) Roofing

The most common type used for residential flat roofing is EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), a synthetic rubber sheet material that is also used to line water features in landscaping projects. Membrane roofing consists of a layer of insulation board underneath a membrane of EPDM rubber. The membrane can be laid down without adhesive but instead covered with stones or masonry pavers that promote evaporation. The membrane can also be fastened or glued to the insulation layer.

Torch-Down Roofing

Torch-down roofing consists of modified asphalt and resin which are melted together using a torch to form a thick waterproof layer, ideal for both commercial and residential use. Torch-down roofing tends to last from 15-20 years, and is extremely durable. It also requires very little maintenance.
