Steel roofs are known for durability and longevity. They’re also aesthetically pleasing to the eye and incredibly energy efficient as their insulation levels are off the charts because they reflect a lot of heat.
Like steel roofs, metal roofs are incredibly sturdy and last a long time, sometimes up to fifty years. Another advantage of metal roofs is that they’re more fire resistant than other options. Metal roofs also keep buildings cooler because of the great insulation they provide.
Thermoplastic Polyolefin, or TPO, is a cost-effective solution that’s great for commercial businesses. It’s white color helps reflect heat away from the building, helping to lower HVAC costs. Because it’s light weight, it’s easier to install than metal roofs so it’s a great fit for someone looking for an effective, cheaper roofing system with durability up to 25 years when it’s installed correctly.
Polyvinyl Chloride, or PVC, is another cost-effective solution for commercial roofing. It’s almost identical to TPO with its main differences being that PVC is more flexible, has a different chemical make-up and has been around longer than TPO. Otherwise, both a white to reflect heat, have similar characteristics and last 25 years.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer, or EPDM is a synthetic rubber membrane that is most commonly used on commercial buildings. It’s extremely durable and is compared as being a bulletproof rubber roof that lasts slightly longer than TPO or PVC at 25-30 years.
