Commercial buildings must be built with durability in mind. The materials used should be hard-wearing and sturdy, withstanding outdoor conditions to prevent damage. This quality helps commercial property owners lower their repair and maintenance expenses, reducing their overall operating costs.
The roof of commercial buildings should be exceptionally durable. Roofs are exposed to water damage, weather conditions, and even falling branches from adjacent trees. As such, you need to select the most suitable material for your commercial roof.

1. PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) & TPO Single-Ply Membranes
“Single-Ply Membrane combines both polypropylene (plastic) and ethylene-propylene (rubber) using state-of-the-art polymer manufacturing technology. Because of these proven qualities, Single-Ply Membrane is one of the fastest-growing commercial roofing products in the country.”
PVC and TPO are time-tested, highly reliable flat roofing material. The membrane is incredibly durable, resistant to fire, water, and harsh weather conditions. PVC and TPO roofing can also withstand frequent exposure to chemical compounds, including oils and animals, making it perfect for food processing facilities.
With its durability and longevity, PVC and TPO roofing are worthwhile investments. The ease of maintenance can add to your cost savings in the long run. Plus, these roofing types can be done as a retro-fit, where you put a single-ply membrane over an existing metal roof or over a flat roof!
2. Elastomeric Coatings
Elastomeric roof coating is a liquid coating that’s applied to low-slope roofs. They often include metal, concrete, or membranous roofing systems, as they can be applied on top of many systems. The coating is applied just like paint would be, but it does a whole lot more than what simple paint can do!
Elastomeric coating can prolong the life of your roof, is energy efficient, gives excellent protection from the elements, and is easy to repair and maintain – everything your commercial roof needs.
