Commercial Flat Roofing – TPO Roofs
As the top commercial flat roofing contractor in Nashville, MidSouth Construction Commercial Roofing installs and repairs TPO flat roofs. TPO roofing is a single-ply membrane roofing system similar to EPDM. However, the TPO roof has additional characteristics over EPDM roofing. TPO can be heated and reshaped numerous times which makes it stand apart from EPDM. When you hire MidSouth Construction you get the absolute best quality commercial roof on the market! And, it is backed by our reputation along with a factory warranty for workmanship and materials for up to 30 years!
A TPO roof is often referred to as a seamless roof and is comprised of a single-ply membrane using thermoplastics. The edges of a TPO roof can be fused or melted together forming a tightly bonded seam. This is different from the EPDM membrane which is seamed together using an adhesive product. TPO roofing comes in a wide range of colors compared to EPDM which is only available in black or white.
Built Up Roofing (BUR)
Built up roofing systems are often referred to as “tar and gravel” roofs and have been used for over 100 years. They are considered one of the most durable types of commercial roofing systems available but are most costly than a TPO or EPDM roof. Installing a BUR roof is more labor-intensive which increases the cost. MidSouth Construction installs or repairs BUR roofs which can be adhered with asphalt, tar, or cold adhesive.
A built up roof, or BUR, is easy to repair and resistant to weather. However, damage can be caused by hail, wind, and snow. The surfacing materials used on a BUR can be many different components such as gravel, glass-fiber or mineral surfaced cap sheets, hot asphalt that is mopped over the entire surface, elastomeric coatings, paint, or aluminum coatings. Surface coatings provide additional benefits of lowering heating and cooling costs when a reflective material is used to reduce the impact of UV radiation.
Elastomeric Roof Coatings
Elastomeric Roof Coatings may be the best solution for your commercial roofing needs! MidSouth Construction installs Elastomeric roof coatings that come with factory warranties for up to 20 years! These types of roofs are popular because they can be very cost-effective while providing long-term warranties. In addition, they can be applied over the existing roof making them an environmentally friendly type of roofing system. Building owners love the reflective properties which can reduce the temperatures during hot months!
An elastomeric coating protects and waterproofs all types of existing commercial roofs including metal, copper, PVC, wood, and even concrete roof substrates. MidSouth Construction Commercial Roofers offer elastomeric roof coatings from various manufacturers. This type of roof repair may be the most affordable option for your commercial roofing needs! And, it comes in a wide range of colors!
Some of the many benefits of an elastomeric coating are:
