Great Looking South Florida Roofs
Esthetically pleasing tile or shingle roof installations are an asset to your home, but it also says a lot about the quality of the underlying workmanship. It takes years in practice to produce straight lines and properly follow roofing angles on shingle, metal, and tile roofs. While the quality of the shingles and tiles produced by manufacturers can vary widely, the original look and color of these materials is actually quite similar. Only after years of abuse from the elements does the quality of the material used in your roof become most apparent. Hammerhead Roofing of South Florida uses only those shingle and tile products that will stand the test of time, protecting your home’s beauty and your investment.
Self-Adhering Commercial Roofing Systems for Palm Beach Areas
Self-adhering roofing membranes offer a number of advantages as a commercial roofing alternative. The manual process of applying adhesives between membranes is eliminated, thereby reducing labor costs. Self adhesive membranes are manufactured with a perfectly uniform layer of adhesive, reducing the total amount of adhesive required while assuring full coverage of the roofing materials, thereby increasing roofing material performance and lifespan. Reducing the manual application of adhesives eliminates application-related spills and subsequent cleanup time for both small and large commercial roofing projects.
Environmentally Friendly Commercial Roofing Systems for Palm Beach Areas
Self-adhering roofing systems are an environmentally friendly alternative to a hot asphalt roof system. Hot asphalt kettles are not required, eliminating fumes, spills, and noisy high pressure pumping equipment, providing a cleaner work space. Self-adhering roofing membranes do not contain volatile organic compounds, providing a healthier project environment. The application of these roofing systems is also a simpler process, providing a predictable workflow, assuring consistent and optimal results, and reducing commercial roofing installation times.
Hot Tar and Asphalt Commercial Roofing Alternative
Hot tar roofing has long been a staple for commercial roofing, though there are drawbacks. Many hot tar alternatives are available, with varying attributes, including cost, reliability, maintenance, and performance. A great hot-tar alternative to consider is a self-adhering roofing system, such as CertainTeed's Flintlastic SA self-adhering system. These systems begin with a nail-able or self-adhering base, with a top surface designed to accept a self-adhering principal roofing membrane. The principal membrane is followed with a self-adhering mid ply layer, and then finished with a self adhering cap sheet.
Warranty for Commercial Self-Adhering Roofing Systems
Self Adhering roofing systems are a form of B.U.R. (Built up Roofing). Like any B.U.R. system, redundancy yields longevity. Increasing the number of membrane plies will augment the durability and corresponding warranties. Many factors must be considered when choosing a commercial roofing system, particularly when pricing a commercial re-roof project. The principal decision usually centers on whether or not to remove the old roof, which affects cost, durability, energy efficiency, and timeframe. These decisions should be made by the building’s owner, who has suitable knowledge of the long term outlook of the commercial building as an investment property.
