Today’s commercial roofing products offer significant protection along with style and affordability. While there are many things to take into consideration when choosing a commercial roofing system, the slope of the roof and budget are typically the most important factors when selecting a product.

Consulting with the professionals at All Around Roofing & Exteriors is the first step in choosing a commercial roofing product that will accommodate the needs of your business property and budget but understanding the products that are available can also be beneficial in the decision-making process.
- EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer): EPDM is a specialized, synthetic roofing material that holds up well in harsh weather conditions. Most business property roofs have little or no slope, allowing for water or snow accumulation, which can damage a roof over time. EPDM offers good thermal properties and contracts and expands in fluctuating temperatures, making it a great choice for low or no slope roofs. It’s available in black or white to retain or reflect heat, is economical and easy to install.
- Built-Up Roofing (BUR): One of the oldest, and most common roofing systems, the built-up roofing system is an excellent option for flat or low slope roofs and is extremely effective for larger commercial properties. BUR consists of multiple layers that are treated with bitumen and finished with a glaze, providing extensive leak protection. It is more durable than EPDM roofing, and while it costs more than EPDM, the warranty for BUR is typically longer.
- TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin): TPO is a popular roofing system that offers affordability, is environmentally friendly, and exceeds the current US energy standards. The TPO membrane is extremely flexible and can resist damages caused by high impact, punctures, and tears. TPO is easy to install and not as messy as other applications. Because of the exceptional weather and ultraviolet resistant qualities, this has become a very popular and desirable material for commercial roofing.
- Modified Bitumen Roofs: Modified bitumen roofs, or modbit roofs, are another great choice for low or no slope roofs. Modbit roofs are similar in composition to bur roofs, but have an added polymer allowing for greater elasticity. There are several advantages to using a modified bitumen roof including its resistance to tears, it’s waterproof, flexible, energy-efficient, and easy to maintain and repair. The modbit roof offers reduced chemical emissions and can be applied using cold methods, which is less disruptive to the business and its operations.
