Secure Roofing installs and repairs commercial flat roofs, and metal roof system. 
If you're in the process of constructing a new building, or planning the replacement of an outdated roof on an existing building, there are two main types of commercial roofing systems to consider:

Thermoplastic Roofing - TPO roofing systems are among the fastest growing commercial roofing systems. Made of an especially durable material with a low-temperature flexibility and a high-temperature tolerance, these roofs are exceptionally resistant to ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure. TPO Roofs can be expected to have a lifespan of 20+ years, and also feature a high resistance to fire, punctures, chemicals and high winds.

EPDM Roofing: EPDM roofing offers superior durability and versatility, making it one of the longest lasting types of commercial roofs available. EPDM commercial roofing systems are also typically easier to install, maintain and repair than most other types of commercial roofs.

One of the best features of TPO roof systems is their environmental benefits. A white TPO roof helps reduce the amount of energy that is required to cool the building, thus lowering energy costs and cutting the amount of energy consumed. Less energy consumption equals fewer pollutants generated back into the atmosphere, directly contributing to a cleaner environment. This also significantly helps in reducing the urban heat island effect. TPO roof systems have a cleaner manufacturing process, contain no chlorine and are recyclable.

Single Ply Membrane Roofing

Single ply membrane roofing is usually broken down into two categories: TPO and EPDM. TPO roofing has a common feature not found in EPDM - it can be heated and reshaped multiple times. As a result, a single ply membrane roof using thermoplastics is often referred to as a seamless roof because the edges can be melted and fused together to form a tightly bonded seam. Consequently, an EPDM membrane is seamed by an adhesive.

When deciding whether a single ply membrane roofing system is right for you, it is important to first consider whether the building is suited for a single ply membrane at all. Generally, single ply membrane roofing is appropriate when weight is a consideration, structural movement is expected, re-covering an existing membrane or installing in cold weather, among other factors.

Advantages of Thermoplastic Membrane Roofing

There are a variety of factors to consider when choosing a new roofing system for your home or business. Aside from the immediate costs, there's the current roofing system on the building, the building design, future maintenance costs, ease of repair and durability to name a few.

In a head-to- head comparison, thermoplastic membrane roofing boasts numerous advantages over other roofing systems for commercial and residential use. In addition to being naturally UV and heat resistant, a TPORoof also remains flexible as it ages - all of which significantly increases its expected lifespan.
