Flat or “Low-Sloped” Roof Restoration
There are a variety of roof covering system options for commercial and industrial buildings in Florida. Chapter 15 of the Florida Building Code defines a “flat” or low-sloped roofing system as anything less than a 3:12 pitch. The roof covering types for flat or “low sloped” roofing systems include:
- Modified Bitumen
- TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin)
- EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
- PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
- Metal Panel
- Tar and Gravel BUR (Built-Up-Roof)
Flat roof systems in Florida fail for a variety of reasons: harsh weather, expansion and contraction, ponding and standing water, wind damage, third-party damage, and age.
Commercial Energy Sytems, a leader in the flat and “low sloped” roofing industry in Florida, and specializes in restoring and refurbishing flat roof commercial and industrial systems using a high-solid (96%), single-component silicone elastomeric and/or spray polyurethane closed-cell roofing foam.
“What type of roof do we have?”
“What is the best solution for our failing roof?”
At Commercial Energy Systems, LLC, these are the questions we hear most often. The answer to both requires an inspection before we can make a professional recommendation. Quite often, the roof can be restored through the application of silicone elastomeric or polyurethane foam at a much lower cost than complete replacement.
When a liquid applied roofing solution does not make sense, we propose a manufactured roofing systems from IB Roof as an alternate solution. IB Roof Systems offer high performance standards, superior waterproofing benefits, energy efficiency and energy savings, “green” building products, minimal maintenace, superior warranty, customer service, and cost effectiveness.
