Commercial Systems

Your roof is an essential piece of your business, and though it covers your operation, you don’t want its welfare taking up too much space in your mind. From installing roof replacement systems to maintenance to applying accessories, at General Roofing, we think about roofing commercial systems all the time, so you don’t have to. We know that different commercial structures have different roofing needs.

Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM)

EPDM is a very affordable type of single-ply membrane roofing. This ‘rubber’ roofing has been in use since the 1960s, and it’s still in use because it is durable and reliable. It is easy to maintain, and its dark color can help retain heat in cooler weather. It’s rated to withstand a wide range of extreme temperatures, and its flexibility allows it to easily wrap around skylights, gutters, and pipes.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Single-Ply Roofing

Another of the ‘rubber’ formulas, TPO roofing, is highly durable due to its flexible membrane and is difficult to puncture or tear. Resistant to dirt, bacteria, and moisture, it lasts for up to 30 years, easily enduring exposure from the sun.

Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing (SPF)

SPF is an eco-friendly option for commercial and industrial roofing. Applied in liquid form, it fills in and seals everything seamlessly. It can last for up to 50 years and does well in cold conditions. As the foam expands and contracts, it prevents cracking and splitting. Because of its naturally insulating nature, it keeps energy costs down.

Sheet Metal Roofing

Sheet metal commercial systems are fire and weather-resistant. Metal is an excellent choice to combat the moisture that rain brings and can stand up to gale force winds. It combines well with many types of insulation and is a good surface for attaching equipment like solar panels.
