Most low-slope commercial roofing systems have three principle components:
Weatherproofing layer or layers — the weatherproofing component is the most important element because it keeps water from entering a roof assembly.
- Reinforcement — reinforcement adds strength, puncture resistance and dimensional stability to a membrane.
- Surfacing — surfacing is the component that protects the weatherproofing and reinforcement from sunlight and weather. Some surfacings provide other benefits such as increased fire resistance, improved traffic and hail resistance, and increased solar reflectivity.
- Some commercial roofing systems feature roof membranes which may perform more than one function. To find out what is best suited for your commercial property contact M. Barboza & Son's Roofing.
