Which Roofing Is Best?

There are many different roofing options a business owner can select from, and a Sterling Heights commercial roofer can come and expertly install the final selection. Due to the wide selection of styles and materials, the perfect roofing option can be installed to match the aesthetic of any building.

Here are three popular roofing options to choose from:

1. Single Ply Roofing

Rooftops that lack durability often lead to expensive problems down the road. Single Ply roofing is a very good option for those who expect to see a lot of rainfall and are looking for highly durable rooftops. This material is so durable because it is made out of compounded synthetic materials that are extremely strong but flexible enough to suit almost any shape and size as well. Single ply roofing is a great option for both those looking to replace their home roof or for those who are looking for a new roof for their commercial property.

Single ply roofing comes in two types: EPDM and TPO. EPDM is rubber based while TPO uses plastic polymers. One of the best things about this roofing is that since the materials are non-hazardous and extremely clean, rainwater can be safely collected from the downspouts to be used for gardening and landscape upkeep without the added cost of using city water. These materials are known for their ability to be waterproof and clean at the same time.

2. Modified Roofing

Modified roofing is an incredibly flexible style of roofing which is very strong and durable at the same time. Modified bitumen membranes can expand in the summer and contract in the winter making them very strong and able to withhold years of harsh weather conditions. If one is looking into this type of roofing there are two models they can select from; SBS and APP. SBS uses rubber and is the most popular whereas APP uses plastics. The many layers of these materials add great quality and make them strong enough to survive any season.

3. Shingle Roofing

Shingle Roofing is best for residential homes and is really an all-time favorite for most people. Shingles are very cost effective and time effective. One can opt between shingles made of fiberglass or those with a paper base. Both these are coated with asphalt in the end and are highly durable. Shingle roofs can last 50 years if the weather conditions are not extremely severe.

If one is looking to replace their commercial roof that is flat or has a very low slope then single-ply roofing and modified roofing are a great selection. If one wants to fix up their home then shingles are the conventional look that everyone generally goes for.  To learn more, contact us today at 586-566-0308 for residential roofing and 586-566-0710 for commercial roofing.  You can also complete a request form on this page or email us at billjr@kanga-roof.com.  We look forward to “Hopping To It” for you today!
