Single Ply Roofing
We offer a few choices for single ply commercial roofing in the Bronx. The first of these is an EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), a durable synthetic roofing membrane made of ethylene and propylene. This combination creates a material that is highly resistant to ozone, weathering, ultraviolet rays, and abrasion which makes it ideal for commercial roofing in the Bronx. This material is available in black (converts UV rays into heat) or white (reflects UV rays) and you simply choose the best for your structure.
The second single ply we offer is TPO (thermoplastic olefin) roofing. TPO is a synthetic rubber compound that is strong and also ideal for conditions in the Bronx. White TPO can reflect almost 87% of ultraviolet rays away from the structure, reducing energy costs. That’s a cool benefit! Or if you want something that will look better on your building, TPO comes in many other colors, most with “Cool Color” technology, which will also reduce cooling costs.
The third option we offer is PVC (polyvinyl chloride) roofing. We at L&M recommend PVC for commercial roofing in the Bronx for a few reasons such as:
- Temperature resistance
- Flame resistance
- Durability and longevity
- Energy efficient
- Low maintenance
PVC roofing has a lifetime expectancy of 20-30 years with almost no maintenance, it’s a really great system!
Built-Up And Modified Roofing
Built-up roofing is the most common type of roofing used for commercial and industrial applications. It involves multiple layers of bitumen and ply sheets to form a waterproof roof for your commercial structure. The basic roof system consists of a roof deck, vapor retardant, insulation, and then the membrane and surfacing material. The membrane is integral to the built-up systems, it is composed of bitumen and piles of roofing felt. The bitumen is the waterproofing and adhesive part of the system, sandwiched between the roofing piles. The bitumen can be modified by additives to give it enhanced properties. At L&M Roofing, we recommend two different kinds of modifiers:
- APP (Atactic propylene) – a thermoplastic polymer added to the bitumen that increases resistance to UV rays, increases flexibility during low temperatures, and improves the flow resistance during high temperatures.
- SBS (Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene) – a modifier that gives the bitumen rubber-like qualities that enhance its resistance to aging and weathering.
Both of these modified built-up systems are ideal for commercial roofing in the Bronx. The professionals at L&M Roofing will consult with you as to which modified built-up roof will work best for your commercial structure.
Green And Garden Roofs
There is something really special about a garden roof…. they are beautiful, eco-friendly, and sure to be noticed! L&M Roofing can bring the romance and magic of a garden to your business or commercial structure in a couple of different ways! A traditional garden roof is not only pleasing to the eye, it is extremely durable, able to last 3-4 times longer than a typical roof. The plants and substrate protect the roofing membranes from UV rays and weathering.
A garden roof can also reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 50%! Green roofs can also absorb 20-100% of storm water and precipitation, reducing the strain on water drainage systems. Not just pretty to look at, food can also be produced by growing vegetables as well as flowers, grasses and other plants. Green and garden systems are really ideal for commercial roofing in the Bronx.
If you decide that you want a green roof, but you don’t want to wait for your garden to grow, L&M Roofing has a solution! We can install modular trays that are pre-planted with the vegetation you want right into the waterproofing membrane on your roof. These are not only easy and quick, but they provide most of the benefits of a traditional garden roof…just quicker! There are a few things to consider when contemplating a garden roof, such as the slope of your roof and the load carrying capacity of your structure. Our team can evaluate your commercial building and help you make the right choice for your garden commercial roofing in the Bronx!
A metal roof is an elegant and durable choice for commercial roofing in the Bronx. Metal roofs have so many fantastic qualities such as:
- Durable-will not crack, rot, dry out, warp, chip, or leak
- Resistant to infestations
- Weather resistant, even to hail
- Energy saving-up to 25% a year
- Eco-friendly-uses no petroleum by products and can be recycled over and over
Standing seam roofs are the most common type of metal roofing, consisting of panels of metal that run from ridge to eaves of a structure’s roof. The panels are connected by raised seams, so they are very waterproof due to the fact that the seams are above any running water. And they are versatile…they come in many kinds of metals such as:
- Galvanized steel
- Stainless steel
The choice is up to you. If you really like copper, we also install traditional copper roofing. It is the most durable of all of the metal roofing materials, and it sure is beautiful at all ages. It is lightweight, and low maintenance as it needs no painting or finishing. It is also great for irregular roof structures due to its malleability. A classic look and a great choice.
