The roof of a building in the Weatherford area must be durable enough to withstand a barrage of ice, wind, and hail while still remaining light enough, so its weight does not affect the structure. This may not seem like a difficult task, but the materials used for Commercial Roofing in Weatherford TX can be fairly heavy. For example, the aggregate, asphalt, and roofing felt that are commonly used for the BUR (built-up up roofing) system can become extremely weighty as additional layers are used for repairs. Alternatives to the flat or low-sloped roof include modified bitumen, EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer), TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin), and steel.
Commercial Roofing in Weatherford TX can use various pitches, and this can make it difficult to provide a reliable covering. Most solutions use some type of sealant, so difficult angles and roofing details are properly sealed. Attempting to use multiple types of roofing can lead to problems when the different roofing materials age. The best choice for many buildings is the use of steel panels or stone-coated steel shingles. These products are lightweight and extremely resistant to weather damage. In fact, many types of steel roofing can be applied over existing roofs as long as the structure is stable enough to provide adequate support.
A roofing solution using stone-coated steel shingles can offer a variety of possible appearances because the shingles can simulate the look of other roofing products such as wood, clay tile, and slate. Each shingle is formed to the desired shape and then galvanized with an alloy of zinc and aluminum. The final process is the application of a stone coating that is adhered using an acrylic resin. Specific styles can be emulated with color variations and the shape of the shingle.
The use of steel panels can create a roof that is uniform in appearance. Standing-seam panels run the length of the roof from the crown to the eaves. The seam of each panel is designed to overlap the previous one and provide a tight seal against leakage. These steel panels come in 24 and 26 gauge sheets and can be coated with a PVDF (polyvinylidene difluoride) based paint. PVDF provides excellent protection from the elements, and it retains its color for decades. Browse our website for more information or view the gallery for ideas.Add to favorites
