Polyurethane Foam: Foam roofs are a combination of a sprayed-in-place polyurethane insulating foam, typically coated with liquid-applied waterproofing membrane. METAL Description: Metal roofing systems are classified into two basic types: architectural, standing seam, and structural. Architectural systems need the metal to be supported on a continuous deck and are designed primarily to be aesthetically pleasing. Structural systems are designed to span structural supports and, therefore, do not require an additional decking material. Structural systems are generally watertight systems and can be used at low slopes, down to 1/4 inches in 12 inches. The waterproofing membrane also protects the foam from ultraviolet attack and is commonly either silicone-, urethane- or acrylic-based.
PVC Poly Vinyl Chloride: Thermoplastic sheets are seamed using hot air to heat-weld the two sides together. The resulting fusion of the sheets creates a seam as strong as the sheet itself. These sheets are manufactured from thermoplastic resins, the most common being PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and TPO (thermoplastic olefin). These sheets are typically reinforced with either a fiberglass or polyester scrim. Thermoplastic systems typically are mechanically attached to the deck through the lap area. This allows them to take advantage of their light color, scrim reinforcement and strong seams. Weldable systems also can be installed as a fully adhered or ballasted system.
MODIFIED BITUMEN: These roofing systems also use multiple layers of bitumen and reinforcement. However, the products come from the factory with a heavy coating of a polymer-modified bitumen on each side of the reinforcement. The polymers are added to modify the properties of bitumen so that it will be stable and flexible at a wide range of rooftop temperatures.
METAL ROOFING: Metal roofing systems are classified into three basic types: architectural, standing seam, and structural. Architectural systems need the metal to be supported on a continuous deck, and are designed primarily to be aesthetically pleasing. Structural systems are designed to span structural supports and, therefore, do not require an additional decking material. Structural systems are generally watertight systems and can be used at low slopes, down to 1/4 inches in 12 inches.
EPDM: These roofing systems are made from large sheets of synthetic rubber that are placed on the roof and seamed in place using adhesives or special tapes. The roof is complete in a single layer; thereby the term single-ply.
Energy Star Roofing: Cool roofs, also known as white roofs, are just that: white. While color is generally an aesthetic element, in this case, it makes a significant impact on just how hot a building gets.
Composite Roofing Shingles are made of a mixture of several commonly used roofing materials, which together allow for some very desirable performance features. This is credited as the reason why composite shingles are one of the most popular sheathing materials available today, constituting a large selection of America’s roofs. Composite roof shingles can be based on a number of materials, including slate, shake, laminate, wood, and slate. Composite shingles are manufactured in almost any color, shape, or size, and do not cost significantly more than other types of roof shingles.
BUILT-UP Roofing: Historically, built-up roofing (BUR) systems are the most common low-sloped roofing type. These systems are built-up from alternating layers of roofing felt and asphalt or coal-tar. It is these alternating layers that provide redundancy in these roofing systems.
