Even the best roof will eventually become old and beyond repair. If your roof is showing signs of age, has leaked several times, or has reached the end of its lifespan, our commercial reroofing technicians in Albuquerque will evaluate your roof and discuss replacement options that fit your priorities, budget, and energy concerns. We install all types of commercial roofing systems from TPO and PVC roofs to modified bitumen and metal roofs.
Commercial Roof Replacement Options
As Albuquerque's leading roofing company, we install all types of commercial flat roof systems to meet your needs.
Single-ply roofing has a single ply of waterproof membrane. This is a good option for low-slope and flat roofs. There are several types of single-ply commercials roofs. A PVC roof are a mid-range product that stands up well against tears, UV exposure, and water. PVC also provides great resistance against uplight. This type of roof is recommended for restaurants because it will not become damaged due to grease from roof vents. TPO vinyl-based roofs are very affordable although how long a TPO roof will last depends on the membrane thickness. A relatively new option is KEE, a premium single-ply product that remains flexible for many years.
Modified bitumen roofs have been used for decades to provide long-lasting, durable roofs for commercial properties. With this type of roof, modifiers are added to standard asphalt. The bitumen is reinfoced with matting to increase its durability. Modified bitumen roofs are easy to repair, weather resistant, and durable.
Built-Up Roofs (BUR)
Built-up roof systems have multiply layers of bitumen and asphalt felt. BUR roofs have a minimum of three layers of reinforced membrane alternated with smooth coating, gravel, or granule surfacing. This type of roof is very heavy and often requires reinforcing the roof structure.
Metal roofing is an excellent choice for commercial roofs because it offers unbeatable durability, low lifecycle costs, very minimal maintenance, and greater design flexibility.
Is Recovering the Roof an Option?
If your roof has good insulation and it has not been recovered before, recovering the roof may be a good option once the roof membrane has reached the end of its life. Not all damaged roofs need to be replaced completely. A fundamentally sound roof can be recovered with a new membrane. This option is less expensive than a full roof replacement and it's less disruptive to operations than a full tear-off.
Sometimes you might need one of services for commercial buildings and there are times when commercial roof repair can save and extend the life of your roof, so make those repairs immediately.
