Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) – a synthetic rubber most commonly used in single-ply roofing. The combination of polyester fleece backing and patented hot melt adhesive provides consistent bond strength between the fleece backing and the membrane. This results in largely eliminating shrinkage while allowing the application to stretch up to 300 percent and move with the building through the season. Three methods of installation are available: ballasted, mechanical and fully adhered. Fully adhered proves to give the longest performance of the three methods.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) – the new generation of single-ply roofing membranes meet the increasing demand for heat-reflective and energy efficient roofing systems. Available in reflective white, tan or gray, this application helps reduce a building’s cooling requirements. Other benefits include: exceptional resistance to ultraviolet degradation, ozone and chemical exposure, long-term weathering resistance, cold temperature flexibility, tear and puncture resistance and heat-seaming capability.

Metal Systems – metal roofs are attractive, versatile, durable, energy and cost efficient. Virtually maintenance free, metal roofing systems can withstand extreme weather conditions including eliminating damage from high winds. Metals roofs are environmentally friendly since metal is 100 percent recyclable thereby avoiding landfill waste.
Asphalt Roofing Systems – high durability, high performance, low maintenance, efficient, high-volume production help make Asphalt roofing systems a viable choice for both low-slope and steep slope roofing.

Built-Up Roof (BUR) Systems – multiple layers of reinforcing plies alternating with asphalt form a redundancy of water proofing layers. Application of gravel or aggregate sheeting will help protect the asphalt from sun damage. Advantages include durability and longevity created by the layers and affordability. The thermal and insulation properties of BUR roofing make the building more energy efficient.
Green Roof Systems – the benefits, both economical and environmental, are encouraging the popularity of green roofing systems. Green roofs last longer; reduce energy costs with natural insulation; filter pollutants and heavy metals by absorption of storm water; improve air quality by filtering pollutants and carbon dioxide out of the air.

Most green roof surfaces stay cooler than conventional rooftops under summertime conditions leading to less heat transfer to the air above the roof helping to keep urban air temperatures lower as well.
Roofing materials with high solar reflective value can lower roof surface temperature, decrease the amount of heat transferred into a building and significantly reduce air conditioning costs.
