Craftech Roofing repairs, replaces, and installs EPDM, TPO, and PVC membrane roofs for businesses across Denver, Colorado. These durable, protective rubber and synthetic materials are the three most common types of single-ply membranes used on commercial buildings.
Affordable, EPDM Roofing
Ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) is a popular roofing material because it’s clean, quick to install for professional roofers, and inexpensive. EPDM is naturally dark in color, but can also be installed with an added white top-coat that reflects heat and reduces energy usage.
- Fire & UV Resistance
- Fully Compatible With Solar Panels
- Pliable Material Settles With Building
- Withstand Extreme Temperatures
- Waterproof Barrier Doesn’t Pollute Runoff
Eco-Friendly TPO Roof Systems
If you’ve ever seen a bright white roof, you’ve probably seen TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin). This commercial roofing type is a popular choice for green construction projects. TPO is a more affordable alternative to PVC while still providing many of the same benefits.
- TPO doesn’t include an insulation factor.
- Its highly reflective surface bounces UV rays and heat away from your building.
- TPO reduces the “heat island effect” and energy costs.
- Its flexibility makes it highly resistant to tears, punctures, and impact damage.
Durable PVC Membrane Roofs
For low-slope and flat top business buildings, PVC is a time-tested, high-quality roofing option. It’s made of polyvinyl chloride — the same kind of plastic as your indoor plumbing. Despite the up-front cost, PVC’s longevity makes it a worthy investment.
- PVC can withstand extreme environmental exposure.
- It’s resistant to harsh chemicals, fire, mold, and UV radiation.
- PVC is recyclable, even after a full service life.
- It’s designed to be watertight.
- Heat welding installation allows the membrane to expand and contract with your building.
How Long Will My Roof Last?
If correctly installed, an EPDM, TPO, or PVC membrane roof can last up to 30 years. TPO has an expected lifespan of 15 years, and PVC’s is 20 years. Well-maintained EPDM, however, can serve far longer – 50 years or more.
When To Repair A Rubber Roof
The first sign of your rubber or plastic roof needing repairs is when it starts leaking. Storm debris can puncture the membrane, causing seals around vent pipes to weaken over time. Our commercial roofers can easily re-weld or patch a damaged membrane in sections, cutting repair time and cost.
