No matter what size business you run, or how large or small your company's building is, our experienced Mercer County Commercial Roofers have you covered.
Many commercial buildings (such as apartment buildings, retail locations, churches, smaller businesses and office buildings) utilize asphalt shingle roofing, which is also used for residential roofing. But larger commercial and industrial buildings (such as warehouses, manufacturing facilities, shopping centers, hospitals, gyms, schools and hotels) have flat roofs. Flat roofs require different roofing materials than pitched/sloped roofing.
There are several types of flat roofing systems, and at DP Roofing & Contracting we provide EPDM, TPO, and BUR roofing. We have over 25 years of experience and skill with installing commercial roofing in Mercer County NJ, and we can advise you on the best type of roofing material for your specific needs.
EPDM roofing is a rubber-like material (often called "rubber roofing") that's commonly used for flat commercial roofing in Mercer County. EPDM roofing is very durable.
If your Mercer County commercial flat roof is black, fairly smooth (no gravel), and looks like rubber, it's most likely EPDM roofing (although the EPDM roof may be covered in a white roof coating).
TPO roofing is a type of "single-ply membrane roofing" that comes in rolls. Since it's a light color (usually white, but sometimes grey or beige), it offers the benefit of reflectivity which can help keep your Mercer County commercial building cooler in the summer. TPO roofing is flexible and can also expand and contract with building settling and temperature shifts (unlike EPDM roofing). It's also more resistant to dirt and mold, and more puncture-resistant, than EPDM.
If your Mercer County commercial flat roof is white or a light color, fairly smooth, and looks like rubber, it's TPO or a coated EPDM roof.
BUR Roofing ("Built-Up Roof" membrane, also known as "Tar and Gravel" roofs) have been used for roofs for 100 years, and became quite popular for commercial roofing in the 1960's. Therefore, BUR roofing has a proven track record of being a reliable, durable, long-lasting option for flat roofs in Mercer County NJ. And BUR is the cheapest of the four most common roofing materials. A BUR roof can last up to 25 years, but of course this depends on the quality of installation, which must be done properly and precisely. Poor installation and lack of ongoing maintenance can greatly decrease the lifespan of a BUR roof. This is why it's so important to work with an experienced, dependable roofing contractor for your Mercer County commercial roof.
If your Mercer County commercial flat roof is coated in what looks like gravel, then it's a BUR roof.
