Commercial roofing is no domain for the amateur professional and it requires a special skill set and training. What looks like a simple roof system, in reality flat roofs have nothing simple about them. These systems usually require meticulous work and premium materials to provide lasting results.
We primarily install a flat roof membrane called ‘cold application’. It is called that way because the application of the material is done in cold as oppose to the more traditional flat roof that involves fire and heat. Not only it is more safe but it is also easier to install and provides outstanding and durable quality roof to any structure whether it is residential or commercial.
Cold applied roofing system is traditionally assembled using solvent-borne bituminous (liquid) adhesives and multiple plies of reinforcement. There is also a newer type of cold applied roofing system that are made of liquid-applied monolithic (no seams) membranes. This second type is made of high-tech polymeric resins such as urethanes, or bitumens which have been modified with polymers such as SEBS. These are applied as a liquid and may not rely on reinforcing material, but cure to form a tough, rubber-like membrane.
Membranes Modified Bitumen roofing is similar to built-up roofing in that it employs reinforcing materials coated with bitumen. The primary difference is the use of “modification” or addition of polymers to the bitumen to achieve improved characteristics. Like built-up roofing, modified bitumen roofs were typically installed using hot asphalt. An alternate approach for some types of modified bitumen was to use a propane torch to melt the back of the sheet, creating a molten adhesive in which the roll could be embedded.
