Commercial roofing systems differ from residential roofs in many ways. They are built with different roofing materials, have different designs and require different approaches to roof repair and gutter installation.
To fully understand how a commercial roofing system works, you need to understand how it is constructed. GAF commercial roofing systems are composed of different layers, explained below.
The single-ply roofing membrane is composed of flexible sheets of synthetic polymer divided synthetic rubber and thermoplastics. It is designed to be UV-resistant, durable, fire retardant, and resistant to chemicals. These features enable it to withstand extreme temperatures and severe weather.
The roofing insulation is essential in maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature and in boosting the energy efficiency of the building. It’s imperative that you work with a contractor who provides high-quality insulation. If your insulation fails, your roof will also fail and your building will be at risk.
Fasteners and Plates
Fasteners and plates are designed to secure insulation to steel roof decks. The roof decks are the foundation of any roof system, and can be made of steel, wood sheathing, concrete or gypsum.
In addition to our roofing services, we can also install high-quality skylights. We offer a wide range of glazing, finishing and limitless design options.
