The Best Commercial Roofing System

Toronto’s commercial property owners do not need to know specific information pertaining to the construction of the roof, as requirements are different for each commercial roofing. The roof just needs to perform its function for a given period of time and the cost of installation for such a roof should be minimal.

The most economically viable commercial roofing system will definitely be choosing a single ply PVC or TPO flat roof. This type of roofing is suitable for buildings of any height and/or size due to it’s simple and customizable design and will provide an opportunity to use the entire amount of space inside it under a commercial roofing system.

Single Ply TPO or PVC Commercial Roofing

The main criteria in selecting a waterproof commercial roofing material for use in large commercial or industrial buildings are: reliability, cost, durability.

PVC flat roofing membranes were first used in 1950, and in the 80’s acquired modern properties. Over a period of more than 30 years, millions of square meters of roofing membrane made of PVC were used to protect residential and commercial roofs from water every year and proved to be extremely reliable and functional throughout it’s entire life cycle. Proven lifespan PVC membrane – 30 years.

Polymeric membranes TPO appeared relatively recently (in 1990) and also showed the absolute reliability, stability of its unique chemical composition and properties after twenty years of service and excellent performance. The latest generation of polymer membranes – TPO membranes, have a projected service life of at least 50 years on a commercial rooftop here in Mississauga and Greater Toronto!

Advantages of Single Ply Membranes for Commercial Roofs

COST

COST

Commercial roofing technology with waterproofing membranes such as PVC and TPO are gaining market by providing an affordable price. Finished roofing membrane corresponds to the cost of traditional two-layer bituminous waterproofing surface, and in some cases, final cost of the commercail roofing membrane will be much cheaper. The price difference is especially noticeable in large commercial roofs, where a small difference of the cost per square foot of the roof on a large volume grows into a significant amount.If you consider the cost of single ply commercial roofing membrane given it’s lifetime.  Single ply membrane roofing is clearly economically more profitable for commercial buildings here in Toronto.

LIGHTWEIGHT

LIGHTWEIGHT

Weight PVC or TPO membrane ranges 1-1.5 kg/sqm, which is important when installing single ply membrane on old asphalt commercial roofs, where additional structural loads are undesirable. In new construction, lightweight materials will significantly lower the cost of the construction of the commercial roofing sytem.

DURABILITY

WATER VAPOR PERMEABILITY

WATER VAPOR PERMEABILITY

REFLECTIVE PROPERTIES

REFLECTIVE PROPERTIES

Standard light gray or white roof membrane surface reflects more heat from the sun especially during summer, which will reduce the cost of air conditioning for commercial or industrial buildings.

FIRE SAFETY

FIRE SAFETY

Flammability PVC membranes are G1, TPO membranes – G2, G3. This reduces risk of fire. It’s low degree of flammability allows use of this membrane on any commercial or industrial roofs with high requirements for fire resistance (applies more to the membrane PVC).
