What is Built Up Roofing?
Built up roofing is also known in the industry as “hot mopped.” Essentially hot adhesive is mopped over the surface of the roofing deck and topped with asphalt coated fiberglass.
This process is repeated three or four times until the adhesive and fiberglass create a tight seal keeping water and air out. The very top layer is kept in place with crushed gravel for added insulation and protection from UV rays.
This economical roofing option weatherizes the roof keeping the elements out. A built-up roofing system typically lasts 15 to 20 years.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
Bitumen is a super adhesive made from asphalt and polyester. It has similar qualities as rubber and is extremely elastic making it incredibly durable.
Modified bitumen can either be a single layer or built up with multiple layers creating an effective seal against water, air, and natural elements. Modified bitumen is highly resistant to cracks and splitting, making it lower maintenance option than standard built-up roofing.
Membrane Roofing Options
Single ply membrane roofing, also known as “rolled roofing,” uses a single layer of membrane — typically a composition of super durable composite materials.
Membrane roofing is the most affordable commercial roofing option because it is the easiest to install. The materials used in these membranes are all exceedingly flexible and durable with very low maintenance.
Single ply membranes are typically rolled out from a thick roll of material. This roofing option does not use a hot adhesive, making it safer with a clean and simple installation process.
EPDM Rubber Roofing
EPDM is a durable synthetic rubber option attached to your flat roof with special tape or liquid adhesives. This choice is extremely cost-efficient when compared to other flat roofing options.
PVC membranes offer exceptional durability and are highly resistant to chemical exposure. For example. they’re a great option for restaurants that utilize grease and oil ventilation systems that damage more traditional hot mopped rooves.
TPO stands for Thermoplastic Polyolefin, an easy to install membrane that comes in a variety of colors. Also, like PVC roofing, it is chemical-resistant, making it an excellent option for restaurants or industries dealing with chemicals and exhaust. Additionally, it’s a great option for areas experiencing high winds like those often seen in the Denver area.
No matter which membrane roofing option you choose, all provide protection and weatherproofing from the elements with a lifespan of up to 30 years.
