Connecticut’s Choice for Commercial Membrane Roofs

We have been specifying and installing commercial membrane roofing in Connecticut for nearly half a century. We have seen the industry evolve from built-up tar and gravel roofs to the current form of single-ply membrane roof systems using EPDM, PVC or TPO membrane roofing.

Types of Single-ply Membrane Roofs

When it comes to membrane roofing systems for low-slope roofs, we use three primary materials:  EPDM, PTO and PVC. Much like your commercial roofing project, each of these materials is unique with distinct benefits. After reading the summaries below, you may better know what sort of roof you’d like to discuss with us.

EPDM Roofing

EPDM, also called Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer, is a synthetic rubber roof material that is highly resistant to wind damage and hail and is flexible and durable in low temperatures as well as extreme heat. It is the most popular low-slope membrane roof material for commercial structures. We install Elevate EPDM (formerly Firestone EPDM), Carlisle EPDM as well as other brands. The material has high resistance to ozone, weathering, abrasion, and ultraviolet radiation and maintains its strength and water-tight properties over time.

PVC Roofing

While commonly perceived as relatively rigid due to its use in drainage or plumbing pipes, plasticizers added during the manufacture of roofing PVC make it pliable as well as durable. PVC roofing systems are widely used due to their ability to resist weather, chemicals and pollutants. The typical white color also makes PVC very energy efficient. Of the “rubber roof” single-ply membrane roofing materials, PVC is considered the most long-lasting, ranging from 15 to 30 years.

TPO Roofing

TPO is said to possess the UV- and heat-resistant qualities of EPDM while having the strength and security of heat-welded seams like PVC roofing. A TPO roof, which is actually a combination of plastic and rubber, is flexible and highly resistant to aging factors such as algae, bacteria, dirt, and debris, as well as ultraviolet light and impact damage. It is cost-effective and comes in different thicknesses and a variety of colors, but primarily is available in white, gray, and tan.
