Texas Property Roof Styles & Options
Industrial & commercial roofing projects often call for a no-frills, no-nonsense approach. The following roofing options are relatively easy to install, durable and economical. While some are used mainly in commercial roofing, their use can be translated into a variety of other roofing projects as well:
• Corrugated Roofing
Corrugated roofing is a highly diverse and economical choice for a variety of commercial roofing projects. Commercial establishments, such as warehouses, storage facilities, garages and sheds, that need durable roofing at nominal cost are all prime corrugated roofing candidates. A lesser-known, but highly useful way to use corrugated roofing is as a skylight; since one of the options available is a clear plastic, it makes an effective and inexpensive alternative to glass. Corrugated roofing is available in both metal and plastic and can come in a variety of painted colors. It ranges from opaque to translucent or clear.
One of the more utilitarian roofing options, corrugated roofing is relatively tough and easy to install— a solid choice for any practical roofing job.
EDPM is one of the most durable commercial roofing options available on the market. Comprised of ethylene and propylene, it is made to simulate rubber. Among modern roofing options, it lasts far longer than its competitors. EDPM is resistant to weathering, hail, low temperatures, thermal shock, ultraviolet radiation, fire and even hurricane force winds. It definitely pays for itself over time, and should be on any businesses short list when considering commercial roofing.
• PVC Plastic Roofing and Thermoplastic Polyolefin
PVC roofing is gaining notoriety, and the industry demand for it is growing rapidly. It is beneficial because it is durable, easy to install and relatively inexpensive.
Some thermoplastic polyolefin, or TPO, membrane roofing options have polyester reinforcement. Light-reflective technology and other upgrades enhance their value and utility as well. PVC roofing is an alternative option to EPDM, sharing many of the same aspects of durability. (Learn about GAF’s single-ply roofing materials).
