Commercial properties often have a flat roof. Despite being associated with poor drainage, flat roofing systems still offer many benefits. Some of these benefits include better aesthetic appeal, easier to install, and less expensive. They require fewer materials, too. A flat roof also helps improve the functionality of a commercial property, making the installation of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment in the roof area easier and more convenient.
 
Tittle Brothers Construction, a known provider of professional, state-of-the-art commercial roofing in Ann Arbor, MI, provides a variety of flat roof options for commercial properties. Read on and find out which flat roofing option is most suited for your property.
 
Built Up Roof (BUR)
This option involves the application of hot asphalt onto the surface of the roof. Experts suggest applying four layers of asphalt on the roof, but many  apply only three layers because it is more cost-efficient. The drawback of using BUR as a primary flat roofing material, meanwhile, is that it can be brittle. If the asphalt is not applied properly, the life span of the roof might be affected.
 
Modified Membranes
The modified membrane roofing system solves the brittleness problem of the BUR. Polymers are added to the asphalt to add roof flexibility. A modified membrane roofing system has many types. If you are thinking of using this system, you may contact Tittle Brothers Construction to determine which type is ideal for your roof.
 
Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) Roofing System
PVC is basically plastic roofing. Roofing materials are infused with plastic to create a more flexible roofing system. PVC roofing systems are known for their stability. However, they have a tendency to become brittle over time.
 
Thermoplastic Roof (TPO) Roofing Systems
TPO roofing systems do not contain plasticizers. They are more flexible than the BUR. If you want a TPO roof, contact Tittle Brothers Construction. We provide TPO roofing systems with materials that are resistant against fire and UV rays.
