Roofing Materials: Which One Is Right for Your Industrial Roof?

When you manage or own a commercial or industrial building, the roofing materials you select can make a big impact on your energy costs, maintenance costs, and more. Just Leaks has been specializing in building, maintaining, and repairing commercial roofs since the 1990s. We have learned a thing or two about roofing materials and which one may be right for your industrial roof. Here are some of the new roofing systems Just Leaks builds for our clients in the San Francisco Bay Area.

AcryPly Polyester Membrane SystemsThe AcryPly Systems use Titex polyester roll fabric over the entire roof membrane. The fabric from the polyester roll holds the roof membrane together and gives the roof the flexibility it needs during extreme weather changes. Polyester rolls have the ability to support and help restore roofing membranes, extending the roofs life-span for many additional years.

Spray Polyurethane Foam SystemsSpray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) roofing provides excellent insulation and custom slope to avoid ponded water issues and improve water flow to drainage. SPF roofing systems require a roof coating to be applied over the foam in order to cover and protect the spray polyurethane foam from deteriorating due to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Topcoats are highly reflective, providing longevity and brightness with superior dirt pick up resistance and protection against biological attach such as algae.

Built-up Capsheet Systems — The fire-rated cap sheet roofing system is designed for use as a cap sheet over inorganic and organic built-up roofing systems. It may also be used as a heavy-duty venting type base sheet when installed mineral side down and either mechanically fastened or spot mopped over lightweight insulating concrete decks or existing smooth surfaced membranes.

Metal Panel Roof Systems — We offer a selection of metal roofing panels, both single skin and insulated, that can be utilized in several different industries, including standing seam, concealed fastener and exposed fastener panels.  

Sloped Roof Systems — Sloped roof systems include shingles that have ENERGY STAR® qualified solar reflectance and thermal emissivity requirements. They reflect solar energy and radiates heat far better than traditional roofing shingles, which mean they can reduce the roof’s temperature by as much as 20 percent in the summer.

As you can see, there are many roofing materials that could benefit your flat-roofed commercial building. To determine which roofing materials work best for your needs, budget, and location, contact the Just Leaks team for a consultation. Give us a call at 408-249-4646. We’ll be happy to help.
