What Types of Commercial Roofing are There?

Hot Tar Commercial Roofing

Conventional hot tar roofing has been around forever. Asphalt is heated in a kettle to 550 degrees and pumped up a pipe and in to maop carts. Experienced roofers then lay a bed of asphalt with a mop and the rolled roofing is laid in to the hot asphalt. Two, three and even up to 5 layers of rolled roofing can be used. The more layers, the longer the roofing warranty. The advantage of this time tested system are the redundant layers. They are very durable and great if there will be a lot of foot traffic on the roof.

Modified Bitumen Roofing

Modified Bitumen roofing is pretty much the same as hot tar roofing with the exception of the final ply of roofing known as the roofing cap sheet. What different in this roll of commercial roofing material is that rubber from car tires is melted in with the asphalt. The adding of rubber to the asphalt “modifies” the roller roofing material. The practice was started in the 70 to help reduce the burden of large amounts of rubber tires in landfills. It turns out however, that there are the benefits.

  1. A higher tolerance to the UV rays of the sun
  2. A longer lasting product
  3. More elasticity and better water proofing qualities

TPO Commercial Roofing

CPA or Copolymer Alloy commercial roofs have many different plastic modifiers and they in to a category known and Single Ply Roofing Systems. The two major flavors of single ply roofing today are PVC and TPO. TPO is the most common. These roofing system are termed Single Ply because only one layer is used to construct the roofing system. The edges or “laps” are heat welded with hot air. Screws are places in the laps first and hold down the roofing system. These roofing systems are generally less expensive than conventional roofs and are not affected by water standing on them for long periods of time.

Are you experiencing any of these problems?

Cracked or Missing Roof Tiles

Roof tiles use nails or foam adhesive to secure them. With “foam on” systems cracked or missing tiles are not so bad. Water falling in the crack can travel down hill and no leaks may occur. Conversely, cracks and missing tiles are a real problem for “nail on” roof tiles. Water running under the tiles pass across the nails. The nails rust in time. This causes roof leaks. So, it’s important to fix cracked tiles and replace missing ones. We use a special mastic to glue the cracked roof tiles. We use a similar mastic to attach replacement roof tiles instead of nails. Why recreant the problem, right? A good roofer will assist you with this.

Tile Roof Penetrations

Anything penetrating the roof tile system is a potential problem. These can be pipes, vents or even skylights. Stucco is used to seal around the penetration in the roof. The stucco cracks over time. Water the falls and travels under the tiles. The same scenario is created as stated in the paragraph above. Hire a licensed roofing contractor.

Missing or Damaged Roof Shingles

One common issue is missing or damaged shingles. This can happen in extreme weather. Or, it may happen over time as your roof ages. Our residential roofer will determine if we can replace the shingles. We can help you assess if a repair is in order or if you need to budget for a complete new roof. Trust only a licensed roofing contractor to fix your roof leak. Never use a handyman.  By definition a handyman is an unlicensed contractor. They love to cut corners and they don’t like to come back and fix their mistakes. Improperly installed shingles will become loose or fall off. If the shingles are not fixed, serious damage will occur. This will lead to a costly repair work. Professional roofing contractor will help you avoid this.

Curling Roof Shingles

Damage from severe weather or long term damage will cause this. Moisture develops in attics not ventilated.  The humidity we experience in Florida can cause the roof to develop mold, decreasing its lifespan. If your shingles show natural wear, we will repair or replace them for you. A roofing company should inspect any damage, no matter how small. We will make sure that you won’t have to deal with any subsequent issues, such as water spots on your ceiling.  Our roofer guaranties it.

If your roof needs work it can be hard to find the right person for the job. You want to find the best team available. But how? One big problem comes from the many terms for the person you are looking for. Do you need a roofer, roofing company, roofing contractor or handyman? To help you understand the different terms we will explain what each of the players are and their roles.

Roofing Companies

Roofing companies specialize in certain disciplines within the roofing industry. Some specialize in residential and others, commercial. Some specialize on tile roofs and others in flat roofs. You get it. Company employees get paired with others to form crews. Each member of a crew will have experience and a particular skill set. Crews are designed to perform specific tasks. It might take several crews to complete a job. The company plans for the materials and crews need to finish a contract.

A roofing companies contract with the general public or business. Under Florida Law, you can go to contract with a roofing company. You can’t contract with a contractor. The law requires companies to designate a qualifying contractor to host the company. This contractor is responsible for the adequacy of the work. Hence, there are two parties responsible in a construction project. The company and the qualifier. The contractor for the work and the company financially.

Roofing Contractors

A roofing contractor is someone who has a license with the State. The license specializing in roofing. The State requires many things of contractors. One needs a minimum 4 years experience working in the field. That is, doing the work himself. The State test has many technical questions on the mechanics of roofing. Other sections on the test are for accounting and construction law. The entire test takes a full day. Furthermore, candidates are required to have a minimum net worth and credit score.

A roofing contractor is a roofer. Some how some certified contractors don’t have the experience they claim. But, were able to pass the test. They don’t do the work and never have. We affectionately call them, gentlemen contractors. A contractor who has his own company but no office is a cellphone contractor.

Roofers

This is someone who works on roofs. Their level of proficiency varies. Laborers carry materials and pickup trash. Rough carpenters are roofers. They measure, cut and install wood. Conventional hot tar roofing has kettle man, mop man, paper setters and a tote man. All roofing crews have sheet metal workers known and metal thumpers. The guy running the nail gun on a shingle crew is the shingler. And finally, people who install roofing tiles are tilers.

Men who have been in the trade a long time can sometimes do all of these. They are revered and called mechanics. Mechanics can install all types of roofing and all kinds of roofing systems.  All of these guys are roofers.

Handyman

Handymen are folks with construction experience, but no licence. A handyman is by definition an unlicensed contractor. Florida has a license for a handyman. It’s name is “residential contractor”. Why don’t they get the license? They could if they wanted to. Everyone will have their own reason. But for the most part, handymen don’t want to be responsible for what they do. They don’t want to get insurance and pull permits. That can’t be good for you. Hire a licenced company, always!
