If your business is looking to upgrade the building you’re housed in, be sure that includes the roof overhead. Many companies begin thinking about the inside of their building and the look of it before considering the outside. If your building doesn’t have a great roof, it could cause damage to the inside from the effects of harsh weather. Hurricanes, thunderstorms, snow or even just longs days baking in the sun can all cause harm to your roofing.

Thermoplastic Roofing (TPO):
This style of roofing is one of the fastest-growing roofing styles in the industry. These roofing systems are in high-demand for large buildings that might deal with production lines, large inventories, chemicals, or even athletic facilities. TPO Roofs can hold up to 20+ years and are resistant to ultraviolet rays, ozone damage, and chemical exposure. They are also great for resisting fire, punctures and high winds making them great for environmental dangers.
Key Advantages of TPO:
- Heat Reflective Surface
- Works on any scale building
- Cost effective for low-sloping buildings
Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer Roofing (EPDM):
The greatest feature of EPDM roofing is that it is totally water resistant making it great for areas that receive a lot of rain during the year. The life expectancy of these roofs can exceed 50 years which makes them a great investment for your company. These roofs are popular for low sloping commercial roofs. EDPM roofs have been the most popular buy for consumers over the last forty years because of their cold application system which is not only safer, but also reduces insurance premiums. They are another industry leader for roofing because of their waterproofing ability as well as their resistance to wind damage and puncture.
Key Advantages of EPDM:
- Resists changes in temperature
- Great for flat roofs
As one of the oldest and most reliable roofing systems, Built-Up Roofs are made of layers of fabric and bitumen. The fabric is normally felt and includes a waterproofing component through either asphalt or cold tar. Both consist of a waterproofing component, reinforcing component and a surfacing component. All Seasons Roofing is trained on all different styles of Built-Up Roofing. This roofing style is also referred to as a BUR roof and has been in use as early as the 1840’s.
Key Advantages of BUR:
- Cost effective over the entire life of your roof
- Many versatile options
- Easily repaired
- Minimal maintenance
Custom Metal Roof:
Lasting anywhere from 20-30 years longer than traditional asphalt roofs, metal roofing is a cost-efficient choice that will increase your property value. This roofing style can transform the look and feel of your business and help propel you to the next level. These roofs consist of aluminum, copper, painted galvalume and stainless steel. Metal Roofs work well for larger structures and buildings as well as more technical buildings like barns and garages. Metal Roofs are also great because they are easily customizable with the ability to be shaped and formed to fit your unique needs.
Key Advantages of Custom Metal Roofs:
- Light Weight
- Fire and Spark Resistant
- Hail and Wind Resistant
Some properties are not allowed to have asphalt bitumen through built-up roofing. In those instances, styrene butadiene styrene (SBS) roofing is available. Most hospitals, schools and high rises don’t allow for the asphalt roofing and therefore go with the SBS option. This option is taking all the benefits of a built-up roof and combining it with the great aspects of a single-ply roof. These roofs have great resistance to aging and weathering making it a great option for businesses who can’t afford continuous updating or repair. However, a UV protection will need to be applied to the surface of the roof because it doesn’t come with a foil or granule coating.
Key Advantages of SBS Roofing:
- Thick and Durable
- Eliminates roof leaks
