EPDM has superior weatherability through a wide range of temperatures and conditions and demonstrates superior ozone resistance. EPDM membranes are available in several thicknesses, with or without polyester scrim reinforcement and can be installed in ballasted, mechanically fastened (reinforced membrane available in 2012) or adhered applications.
With wide widths and fewer seams, EPDM systems improve contractor efficiency during installation. EPDM offers a quick, clean, inexpensive solution able to be installed in a wide range of temperatures. EPDM roofing systems provide excellent UV and weather resistance as well as sheet flexibility and high elongation. Systems can be installed fully adhered, mechanically fastened or ballasted. A complete line of accessories, sealants and adhesives is also available.
It has been proven time and time again...a well maintained roof will last up to twice as long as a roof that has not been properly maintained. People sometimes believe that they do not need to maintain their roof if it is under warranty. This is simply not the case.
Consider the vehicle you drive. Just because you have a 5-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty doesn’t mean you don’t have to change the oil, replace your tires, inspect the engine or buy new wipers. A roof is the same; you still have to clean your drains, repair third party damage, inspect flashings, etc. to ensure the integrity of the roof over time.
The Burlington Roofing Co., Inc. Roof Management Program gives you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your roof is being properly maintained and there won’t be any surprises down the road. Burlington Roofing Co., Inc. can provide annual or bi-annual maintenance, depending on your needs and preferences, for a very nominal fee.
Maintenance services would include:
- Cleaning the drainage system
- Inspecting and making minor repairs to the field of the roof
- Inspecting and repairing base flashings
- Re-caulking any coping caps or other sheet metal products as needed
- Perform visual inspection to check for vandalism, surface contamination or ponding water
- Remove debris from the roof surface that may restrict roof drainage
- A written report of our findings and any recommendations
SINGLE PLY PVC
PVC roofing materials are a highly-engineered, flexible, thermoplastic membrane manufactured using an ultraviolet-resistant polyvinyl chloride and a DuPont Elvaloy KEE (ketone ethylene ester) formulation. It provides excellent weathering characteristics, high tensile strength and long-term flexibility. It also exhibits excellent resistance to harsh chemicals and industrial pollutants.
PVC roofing systems result in a cleaner, quicker, more economical installation able to withstand heat, wind, rain, varying temperatures and many contaminants. The heat- weldable seams provide a unified, watertight seal as strong as the membrane itself. Systems can be installed fully adhered or mechanically fastened. A complete line of accessories, sealants and adhesives is also available.
There are many reasons to specify PVC, but these three are the most important: the PVC formulation offers the lowest life cycle cost in the industry, PVC has the highest reflectivity rating for increased energy savings, and also delivers best in class chemical resistance.
TPO membranes are single-ply roof membranes constructed from ethylene propylene rubber. They are designed to combine the durability of EPDM rubber with the proven performance of hot-air weldable seams. They have been tested as having excellent resistance to ozone, are algae-resistant, environmentally friendly and safe to install. The material's manufacturers are so confident in properly welded seams that the material is sometimes advertised as a monolithic (seamless) roof. Seam strengths are reportedly 3 to 4 times those of EPDM's adhesive and tape seams.
TPO is highly resistant to tears, impacts, and punctures with good flexibility to allow for building movement. TPO's are available in white, light gray, and black with thicknesses of either 45 mils (.045") or 60 mils (.060"). The width of the membrane depends on the manufacturer but they usually come in widths of six to six-and-a-half feet and are one-hundred feet in length.
TPO membranes are installed fully-adhered, mechanically-attached or ballasted. Fully-adhered means that the roof is "glued" to the substrate using a special adhesive. What actually happens is the glue creates a chemical bond with the membrane. Ballasted simply means the membrane is loose laid over the top of the roof, sealed at all penetrations and around the perimeter, and then a ballast is put on it to hold it in place. Ballast usually consists of smooth, round, river rock 2" - 3" in diameter and is applied at a rate of 1,000 to 1,200 pounds per roof square (100 sq. ft.). Sometimes concrete pavers are used in their place. These average 20 pounds per square foot. Mechanically-attached membranes are those that use some type of special screw-type fastener to secure it. The type of fastener will depend on the type of substrate but all fasteners are generally screw-type fasteners.
Properly installed TPO roof systems have service lives ranging from about 10 to 20 years, depending on the type of installation. Full removal of the existing roof, the amount of slope the roof has, weather conditions, as well as several other criteria contribute to the longevity of a roof's service life. Typically, if you remove an old roof down to the deck before installing a new one, then the new roof will last longer. Also, the steeper the slope and the less severe the weather conditions, the longer a roof will last. High winds and hail can do a roof in rather quickly.
