Comprehensive Commercial Roofing Services

TPO Roofing

TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) is widely employed as a single-ply roofing membrane, recognized for its high solar reflectivity akin to PVC. It exhibits strong resistance to punctures, impacts, and tears, installed in large sheets typically measuring 10 to 16 feet wide and extending up to 100 feet long. Its flexibility is perfectly suited to cope with the fluctuating temperatures often experienced in the Elizabeth area. TPO uses hot-air welding for its seams and flashings, boasting algae resistance and environmental friendliness.

Advantages

Maximizes solar reflectivity to reduce energy bills and limit heat absorption

Hot-air welded seams for a water-damage-resistant, watertight, leak-resistant, and seamless roof

Stays flexible through temperature changes to avoid cracking

Durable enough to endure extreme weather conditions

Resistant to tears, punctures, and impact

Repairs

TPO roof repair involves several key processes to ensure its durability and longevity. Initially, a detailed inspection identifies issues such as seam failures, punctures, or tears. Next, the surface undergoes cleaning to eliminate contaminants and dirt. Minor problems are resolved by cutting a PVC patch to fit and welding it onto the current membrane with a hot-air welder. More substantial or intricate repairs may require sections of the membrane to be replaced. Following the TPO roofing repair, testing is conducted to ensure the seams are effectively waterproofed. Periodic maintenance evaluations contribute to extending the roof’s lifespan and preventing future commercial roof repairs.

Replacement

TPO roofing replacement begins with the removal of the existing roofing material, encompassing aged PVC membranes and any impaired insulation layers. Following this, we meticulously inspect and repair the roof deck as needed to establish a solid base. Then, insulation is added to enhance energy efficiency. Sizable sheets of new PVC membrane are rolled out and positioned with precision. Utilizing hot-air welding, the seams are fused to establish a seamless, impervious surface. Flashings and edge details are welded to provide thorough coverage and protection. Finally, rigorous inspections verify adhesion and seam integrity, ensuring the resilience and longevity of the TPO roof replacement against adverse weather conditions.

Built-Up Roofing

Developed from conventional asphalt roofing techniques, modified bitumen roofing blends asphalt with plasticizers, solvents, and rubber modifiers. Typically, installation employs two techniques: hot application, which entails heating seams to fuse asphalt for a durable bond, and cold application, using adhesives to attach membrane sheets to the substrate and following layers.

Advantages

Reliable

Proper care can lead to a 20+-year lifespan

Durable

Strong fire resistance that can be boosted with fire retardant additives

Versatile

Cost-effective

Layered and reinforced design provides outstanding weather resistance and waterproofing

Repairs

Built-up roofing repair starts with assessing for issues such as blisters, loose gravel, or cracks, cleaning the affected area and applying additional bitumen or adhesive as needed. Inspection and repair of flashings and seams are also conducted to thwart leaks. Once repairs are done, the roof undergoes inspection to verify waterproofing and adhesion effectiveness. Our Elizabeth commercial roof repair crew will also recommend regular maintenance for prolonged durability.

Replacement

BUR (built-up roof) replacement starts with removing the current materials to uncover the roof deck, followed by inspecting it and making any needed repairs. Insulation might be introduced for improved energy efficiency. New layers of bitumen and fabrics are then applied using either cold adhesives or hot asphalt. During commercial roof replacement, waterproofing is achieved using sealants, flashing, and protective surfacing. Following completion, an inspection is conducted to ensure structural integrity and adhesion. Maintenance and inspections post-installation are crucial for long-term performance.

PVC Roofing

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) roofing is renowned for its flexibility, exceptional reflectivity, and the capability to block up to 90% of the UV rays that degrade traditional flat roofing materials. Its resistance to ponding water is achieved through hot-air welding, creating a seamless, monolithic installation that strengthens the roof at its seams. Cooling costs are kept low with PVC roofs because they prevent buildings from absorbing too much heat. Our commercial roofers find PVC roofing to be versatile, offering various thicknesses, sizes, colors, and designs for flat and low-slope roofs.

Advantages

Resistant to ponding water

Proven to perform well in heavy rain and snow

Efficient heat absorption to minimize cooling expenses

Resistant to chemicals, fire, and wind

Remarkable durability and strength

Aesthetically pleasing

Highly functional

Efficient and reliable

Repairs

PVC roofing repair requires careful steps to maintain the endurance and reliability of your roofing structure. At Tri-State Commercial Roofing Corp., a dedicated commercial roofer will start by cleaning the roof to remove dirt, debris, and loose materials, and then proceed to remove damaged sections of the membrane. The process involves cutting a fitted PVC patch that extends beyond the damaged area, which we weld onto the existing membrane. We’ll finalize your PVC roof repair by completing detailed inspections and testing to verify seamless fusion.

Replacement

PVC roof replacement begins with removing the current roof, inspecting and repairing the deck as required, and completing other necessary preparations. This Elizabeth commercial roof replacement involves rolling out the PVC membrane and cutting it to the appropriate measurements. We place the sheets securely, weld the seams for a tight seal against water, and include flashings and edge features to minimize the risk of leaks. Finalizing PVC roofing replacement involves a meticulous inspection to verify thorough installation and effective sealing.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is constructed from panels made of galvalume or aluminum, which are either factory-produced or custom-formed, and includes a variety of flashing profiles. It is utilized on roofs with varying slopes, often chosen for its visual enhancement alongside other roofing choices. Metal roofing panels offer a selection of colors and are suitable for installation on curved roof sections. They are renowned for their durability, lasting between 40 to 70 years depending on the metal type and surface treatment chosen.

Advantages

Reduces cooling costs, minimizes heat absorption, and promotes energy efficiency

Durable

Exceptionally long lifespan of 40 to 70 years

Versatile and practical

Lightweight

Low maintenance

Sustainable and 100% recyclable

Highly resistant to insects, rot, fire, and mildew

Repairs

The process of metal roof repair begins with an inspection to identify corrosion, dents, or punctures. The next step is surface preparation, which cleans surfaces of dirt, debris, and rust. Sealants or patches are employed for minor issues, with more extensive damage potentially requiring the replacement of panels. Seams and flashings undergo thorough inspection and repair to prevent water damage. After metal roofing repair is completed, we ensure waterproofing efficiency and sealant adhesion. Routine maintenance aids in early issue identification, extending roof lifespan, and maintaining appearance and functionality.

Replacement

Metal roof replacement begins with the removal of old flashing and panels to assess the roof deck for damage, which is then rectified as required. Upgraded insulation can be integrated to enhance energy efficiency. Newly installed aluminum or galvalume panels are securely placed, taking into account the roof’s pitch and structure. Sealants and flashings are expertly applied to achieve optimal waterproofing. The final phase involves a thorough inspection to confirm installation quality and adherence to standards.

EPDM Roofing

EPDM roofing, known as rubber roofing or Ethylene Diene Monomer, is widely selected for commercial properties in the northeastern United States. It is available in white or black and is highly flexible, making it suitable for flat and low-slope roofs. It offers exceptional resistance to fire, wind damage, and harmful UV rays. EPDM sheet seams and flashing joints are bonded securely with specialized adhesives for maximum durability.

Advantages

Easy installation for commercial roof contractors

Long lifespan

Energy-efficient

Low maintenance

Repairs

The process of EPDM roof repair is generally uncomplicated, targeting issues such as tears, leaks, or membrane seam separation. Initiating an EPDM roofing repair involves visually inspecting the roof or using advanced leak detection techniques to detect and address any problems. Informed by your knowledgeable Elizabeth commercial roofers, our process begins with clearing affected areas, applying necessary primers, and/or employing patches or adhesives where necessary. Precise execution of your commercial roof repair is crucial to safeguard membrane integrity and avoid future challenges.

Replacement

Should it be determined that your existing roof is inadequate or has suffered irreparable damage, we’ll recommend an EPDM roof replacement. This process involves removing the existing EPDM membrane, preparing the roof substrate, and installing a new one. Our EPDM roofing replacement service ensures ongoing protection, consistent performance, and warranty backing. Regular commercial roof maintenance is essential to maintaining the condition of your EPDM roof. EPDM roofing is known for its cost-effectiveness, reliability, and flexibility in commercial environments.
