L&M Roofing Options for Single Ply Commercial Roofing in Queens
For single ply roofing we have three great options.
The first is EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) roofing. This synthetic rubber roofing is very durable. The combination of ethylene and propylene creates a roofing material that is highly resistant to ozone, ultraviolet, weather and abrasion damage.
Other benefits of EPDM include:
- Low temperatures will not make it brittle or cause it to shatter
- Outstanding performance against hail damage
- Superior resistance to thermal shock
- Potential 50-year life expectancy
- Excellent endurance against thermal shock
EPDM comes in two color options, black or white. Black converts UV rays into heat while white reflects UV rays, protecting polymers.
The second choice for single ply commercial roofing in Queens is TPO (thermoplastic olefin). TPO is a top option for commercial roofing with its unique ability to be fused together like a plastic membrane, making its seams 6 times stronger than glued seams and 3 times stronger than taped seams. With seams being the weakest point of single ply roofing, TPO showcases outstanding strength performance at its seams.
White TPO can reflect up to 87% of the sun’s damaging UV rays to keep your building cooler and save on your cooling expenses. If you are in the market for a unique color roofing TPO comes in an almost limitless selection of colors. With all the color possibilities you don’t have to give up energy efficiency as most colors include “Cool Color” technology to increase UV reflection.
Our third and final option for single ply roofing is PVC (Polyvinyl chloride). We highly recommend PVC roofing based on its outstanding performance characteristics including:
- Weather resistance
- Temperature resistance
- Flame resistance
- Economically priced
- Energy efficiency
- Low maintenance
The seams for PVC roofing are heat welded, creating seams that are actually the strongest points of the entire roof. These roofs last from 20-30 years with practically no maintenance. With superior reflective properties PVC roofing can help you save up to 40% on your cooling expenses every year.
Built Up and Modified Commercial Roofing in Queens
Built up roofing is the most used type of roofing for commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. As its name suggest built up roofing is built from several layers of bitumen and ply sheets, the components include:
- Roof deck
- Vapor retarder
- Membrane and surfacing material
Roofing bitumen is the main adhesive and waterproofing agent that is used between the ply sheets. Modified bitumen is improved with added agents that create a uniform surface and enhance performance.
L&M recommends APP roofing systems and SBS roofing systems.
APP (Atctic Polypropylene) when added to roofing bitumen creates a high performing roofing membrane with increased resistance to damaging ultraviolet rays. It also increases the membranes flexibility in low temperatures and improves its high temperature performance. The most common installation method for APP roofing systems uses torches to soften the modified bitumen, tuning it into a molten adhesive that can be applied to the roof and then pressed.
SBS (Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene) gives roofing bitumen a rubber-like quality that enhances its resistance to weather and aging making SBS a superior choice for built up roofing. Although SBS can be installed the same way as APP it is usually installed with a hot mopping technique. Hot mopping is done by applying a thin layer of hot modified bitumen to the roof and then layering on felts. After the felts are placed, a broom is pulled over to help embed the felts into the bitumen.
Garden and Green Commercial Roofing in Queens
Looking for something more than your traditional roofing solutions? Imagine a meadow of regional flowers and vegetation spanning across your roof. It’s possible! Green and garden roofing is a great option for the environment as well as being a great investment. Your roof will last 3-4 times longer, you’ll see up to a 50% reduction in cooling and heating costs. Environmental benefits include:
- Reduction of the inland heat effect
- 20%-100% water absorption (reducing pollution from waste water drainage)
- Ability to grow your own food on your roof!
Can’t wait for a garden to grow? Consider pre-planted modular trays full of beautiful plants. This option will take you plain roof to a rooftop paradise instantly.
Existing roofs need to be evaluated for the slope and how much weight they are able to support before getting started with your garden rooftop.
Metal Commercial Roofing in Queens
When it comes to durability and lasting sustainability, copper roofing can’t be beat. Aside from being one of the most unique and beautiful roofing materials, it also has an impressive list of outstanding performance qualities including:
- Resistance to corrosion
- High durability
- Extremely long lifespan
- Very low maintenance
- Radio frequency shielding
- Lightning protection
Metal roofs are most commonly made from metal panels joined by seams called standing metal seam. Metal roofing can be made of a wide variety of metals including:
