Industrial Roofing Materials

These are the different types of industrial roofing materials we offer:

1. Cool Roof Systems

These systems are designed to help keep building interiors cooler by reflecting rather than absorbing sunlight. This quality, known as solar reflectance, ensures that your industrial building stays cooler during the summer and helps lower energy costs.

Cool roof systems also increase comfort inside the building, offering a more productive work environment. Additional benefits include:

  • Reduced risk of roof deterioration from UV exposure.
  • Decreased air pollution. 
  • Reduced demand for electricity during peak times of the year by keeping the interior cool.
  • Low roof maintenance cost.

Cool roof systems are traditionally white but, thanks to advancements in the roofing industry, now also come in darker shades. Our DFW roofing experts can help you choose the right cool roof system for your building’s energy needs and aesthetics.

2. EPDM Roofing

Also known as thermostat roofing, EPDM is a single-ply membrane roofing characterized by its rubbery material. This type of roofing is a top option for industrial buildings, as it works well on low slope roofs and has several essential benefits for industrial businesses, including:

  • Fire resistance
  • Cold resistance
  • UV resistance
  • Acid resistance
  • Alcohol and solvent resistance
  • Easy installation
  • Easy maintenance
  • Easy repair

Installation of EPDM roofing involves manually adhering the roofing material to the roof or mechanically attaching it. The seams are then sealed using a liquid adhesive or specially formulated tape to prevent water from pooling up and instead of directing it off the roof.

3. Modified Bitumen Industrial Roofing

Modified bitumen roofs are traditionally designed for commercial and smaller industrial buildings that have low slopes. The bitumen in these roof systems is made of naturally occurring solid petroleum combined with other materials, such as fiberglass, to increase its durability. This durability allows it to hold up well in severe weather. It also has the following benefits:

  • Easy repair
  • Flexible material reduces the risk of cracks due to extreme temperature changes
  • Low maintenance
  • Durable under heavy foot traffic

Modified bitumen roofing is installed in three-foot rolls that are heated with a torch as the material is spread out on the surface of the roof. A layer of gravel is then applied on top, helping it resist UV ray damage.

4. Metal Roof Systems

Many people want highly durable metal roofing for industrial buildings. Metal roofs provide a strong defense against the elements, making them a popular choice for warehouses and power plants. They are most often installed on pitched roofs.

Dent and Rust Resistance

Plus, industry advancements have addressed age-old issues of rusting and denting. Industrial metal roofing is now highly resistant to denting and can last up to 40 years without developing rust.

These roofs are installed using either an exposed or hidden fastener system. Hidden fastener systems are more common for industrial roofing, as they increase the roof’s durability and create that distinct raised-seam look.

Besides durability and aesthetics, metal roofing also offers the following benefits:

  • Fire resistance
  • Versatility
  • Wind resistance
  • Holding up well under severe weather conditions
  • Holding up well under extreme temperature changes

Acme Roof Systems is proud to offer a wide range of metal roofing options such as:

  • Corrugated galvanized steel
  • Stone-coated steel
  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Tin
  • Stainless steel

5. Built-Up Industrial Roofing

Built-up roofs (BUR) are named for their application method. These roofs are applied in multiple layers with base layers of tar or asphalt and a top layer of gravel. Built-up roofs can be applied to a roof with little or no slope. They offer the following benefits:

  • Waterproof sealing
  • UV resistance
  • Low maintenance
  • High durability
  • Low cost

6. PVC Industrial Roofing Systems

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) roofing is a popular choice for industrial buildings with flat roofs. These roofing systems are most often installed on condominium buildings and warehouses.

PVC roofing is well known for its cost-effectiveness and impressive durability. These roofs provide excellent protection against harsh weather conditions and temperatures. They are made from two layers of PVC roofing material with polyester in between. Both layers are reinforced to handle impact damage.

The PVC layers also have additives, making them more flexible, reducing the risk of cracks, and protecting them from UV rays. An acrylic coating is added to the final layer to help improve dirt and dust resistance and make it reflective, keeping your roof clean and interior cool.

PVC industrial roofs are: 

  • Recyclable, making them eco-friendly and sustainable
  • Reflective, keeping interior temperatures and energy costs down
  • Highly durable
  • Wind resistant
  • Fire resistant
  • Chemical resistant
