With that many buildings, especially those of the industrial kind, it is imperative to get yourself the best contractor. Roofing for industrial buildings is more susceptible to wearing out as compared to those of residential buildings. This is due to the former’s continual exposure to chemicals, exhausts and residues from the industrial activities.

How you will pick the material will depend on its availability, cost, the installation costs and the type of roof you want. There are 5 types of materials usually used in industrial roofing:
Built-Up Roofing (BUR)
This is considered to be the oldest and most long-lasting material for roofing. It is made up of 3 main elements: asphalt which provides adhesion and is instrumental in water proofing; ply sheets which offer reinforcement to prevent erosion and surfacing tools that protect from UV radiation, water etc.
Known in full as spray polyurethane foam, this roof system is created by mixing and spraying a liquid that has two components which form the foundation of the work. This liquid creates a smooth, unbroken barrier that protects the pipes, vents and other outcroppings on the roof.
Single ply roofing
It is also called PVC or TPO. It consists of 4 basic components: an insulation layer, a single ply membrane made either of plastic or rubber, an adhesive and flashing.
This kind of system is built from metal pieces or tiles. Steel, copper or aluminium can be used to make the roofing. The main advantages include being long-lasting, fire-resistant, and easy to install. However, they are noisy when it is raining and they have high purchase and installation costs.
You need to be well-informed before roofing or re-roofing your industrial building. Prior to hiring a professional roofer, ensure that you have gone to their website to see reviews from previous clients to gauge the kind of services offered. In conclusion, get quotes from a minimum of 3 professional roofers so you can effectively compare and contrast services and get a fair price range.
