Commercial roofing systems we service:

Built-up Roofing (BUR)

BUR has been around for over a century thanks to its simplicity, affordability, durability, low maintenance requirements, and excellent protection against roof leaks. It is relatively easy to repair and offers millions of building owners peace of mind regarding protection and insurance costs.

Built-in roofing compares favorably against virtually any single-layer membrane roofing system. Its superiority stems from its multiple layers of heavy-duty fabric, paper, felt, or rubber sealed in hot tar and covered with concrete, gravel, or crushed stone. Often set thicker than even industrial plywood, BUR is incredibly strong and can withstand weather storm damage as well as any workers who need to walk over it.

Some may point out that single-layer roofing systems reflect UV rays — but so can BUR systems using any one of many UV-finishing products.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin Roofing (TPO)

TPO is relatively new to the roofing industry. The industry has only had it as an option in the early 1990s.

It is a single-ply roofing system with a TPO membrane consisting of three layers: a polymer base, a polyester fabric center, and a TPO-compounded top ply. Manufacturers generally produce it using recycled plastic. The fillers can include talc, carbon, fiberglass, wollastonite, ethylene-propylene rubber, and other materials.

TPO roofing’s advantages include its energy efficiency and cost savings, affordability, flexibility (allows for a building’s movement or settling), resistance to mold, tears, punctures, and ease of installation.

Many modern businesses prefer TPO as their roofing installation or replacement solution because it is easily rolled out, adhered to the roof, and fastened down. It is a fast, affordable, waterproof, and durable roofing system.

Frequently Asked Questions

First, make a list of any questions you have about the roofing process and so on – make your questions as specific and particular as you can. Your list should include what they will do from start to finish and what materials they will use. Find out how their roofing system will hold up against excess snow build-up or how it can handle heavy weather events. Ask the contractor to discuss the different types of systems they use and how they differ. Also, ask what their experience is with each type, as well as their installation process.

After that, ask them what their pricing structure is and how they will bill you throughout the process. Contractors must be upfront with their pricing because it can get costly when you have no idea how much the job will cost. Once they give you a price, ask them if any extra fees could come up and how those will impact your project.

Then ask them about the length of time the project will take. This way, you can make sure that your contractor uses a timeline that works for your schedule.

Once you’ve asked all of the questions on your list and determined that your contractor can help you achieve your roofing goals, it’s time to sign a contract. Be sure to read the contract carefully to understand all of the terms. If you have any further questions, ask before signing any agreement in case there is anything that isn’t clear.

There isn’t a standard answer to this question as it will depend on a variety of factors. For the most part, it will usually between 10 and 40 years. A lot of this depends on the installer’s experience, what material the company uses and its quality, general roof maintenance afterward, and what type of climate it experiences over the years.

A new commercial roof’s cost varies depending on several factors like estimated square footage, the type of roofing material, the style of roof, the number of any objects on top, and any possibly complex roofing issue we discover. Zen will always provide you with a thorough and custom – and free – estimate for any job!
