Blogs Some Tips On How To Use  Our Commercial Roof Replacement Cost Estimator

Commercial roofing systems differ in materials from what is used for residential roofing. And each one of them has pros and cons. We’d suggest you make a brief overview before you proceed to our rood replacements cost estimator.

EPDM Roofing

Advantages

  • One of the least expensive options to install and repair: because EPDM rolls are wide and long, there is less damage if just one of them seems to fail, and hence it is cheaper to replace it
  • EPDM has the longest-lasting lifespan of the most commercial roofing systems available.
  • Fast and easy to install
  • Hail, ozone resistant
  • Energy-efficient: EPDM absorbs heat during hot weather and keeps the warm inside of your building during the winter.
  • Resistant to fluctuating temperatures (tolerance range is -40ºF to a maximum of 300ºF)
  • Fire-resistant
  • Strong-wind resistant

Disadvantages

  • Can puncture easily
  • Poor petroleum resistance: it can begin to breakdown when it comes in contact with petroleum-based products

TPO Roofing

Advantages

  • TPO is one of the least expensive options available and costs even less than EPDM or other synthetic rubber roofing systems
  • TPO can be installed in various ways, making installation easy
  • The material resists corrosion and breaks down when it comes into contact with numerous materials
  • It shows resistance to dirt build-up, punctures, and tears as well
  • This type of roof has a lifespan of 22 to 30 years
  • Energy-efficient
  • Made from environmentally friendly products

Disadvantages

  • When the top layer is laminated, it might cause TPO roofs to develop cracks in the surface pretty quickly
  • Flat roofs are more susceptible to water build-up on the roof
  • It does not handle high heat very well

Metal Roofing

Advantages

  • Good for flat or steep roofs
  • It can last over 50 years and be resistant to extreme weather and other damaging conditions
  • Energy-Efficient: Metal shingles can be energy-efficient as they reflect the sun’s rays, keeping your home cool
  • Fire-Resistant
  • Environmentally Friendly

Disadvantages

  • They are quite expensive to install
  • Heavyweight
  • Difficult to Repair
