Let’s take a look at the five types of commercial roofing solutions, their advantages, shortcomings, and costs.
Single-Ply Membrane Roofing
Single-Ply Roof Membranes, EPDM or TPO, are the most common and well-known types of commercial roofing materials. This roofing material has stood the test of time for industrial and commercial installations.
Property Managers can expect to invest between $4.50 and $6.50 per square foot. A properly installed EPDM or TPO Roof should last up to 30 years.
Other advantages and benefits include:
EPDM Roofing is a dark-colored roof while TPO is white.
Class A fire rating by Underwriters Laboratories which is achieved by adding fire retardants in the manufacturing processes.
Insulation is a great added option with membrane roofing to add a layer of protection.
A built-up roofing system is most commonly called “tar and gravel or asphalt and gravel.” This type of roofing is layered with the final layer being the stone coating or the gravel. With a Built-up roofing system, several layers can be applied.
The cost can vary with a built-up system depending on the number of layers installed and the material used. With the average commercial roof, a property owner can spend as much as $9 per square foot and can expect a life span of up to 40 years.
Some other Advantages
Reflective- Allow extra protection against the sun
Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing
Or SPF is a roofing material or technology that is perfectly suited to large commercial and residential properties. It is a foam that is sprayed onto the existing roof in its liquid form. It then forms a solid layer over the roof. It can either be covered with a membrane or left the way it is with an expected life span of over 50 years.
The cost range of an average foam thickness and building structure is $6 to $7 per square foot.
The advantages of Spray Foam Roofing Systems are:
Energy Efficient – Optional insulation barriers to provide the highest R-value per inch.
Durable – The foam material reduces the likelihood of roof leaks.
Waterproof – Solid foam surface protects the most vulnerable areas from leaking.
Metal Roofing is becoming the standard for commercial roofing companies in Bozeman and Great Falls, Montana. Most metal roofing systems use corrugated galvanized steel. Metal Roofing can be installed right over the top of the existing roof. With a metal roofing system installed, foam or SPF can be added for waterproofing, rust protection, and UV protection.
For an average commercial roof, a building owner or property manager will invest up to $10 per square foot in materials and labor. Your commercial metal roof will last up to 40 years or more making it one of the better cost-efficient ways to replace your roof.
Benefits of metal roofing include:
Very little repair, if any.
There are two main types of shingles: Architectural and Asphalt
Architectural Shingles: multi-layered and heavier to add durability and weatherproofing to the building. Often comes with “lifetime” warranties.
Asphalt Shingles: The most common, cost-effective shingle on the market used for residential and commercial roofing applications. These roof systems often come with 15 – 30-year warranties on average.
Shingle roofing is the standard in the roofing industry for many reasons. They not only are easy to replace but they are extremely cost-efficient as well. While they may only last 5-7 years, a repair is so easy that it can be worth it to go this route.
