RME Roofing is a professional roofing company located in Englewood, Colorado. We specialize in installing and repairing roofs of commercial buildings. There are many different types of roofing materials that we use depending on the type of building. Most roofs have some sort of membrane installed on top of them. These membranes protect the roof from leaks and water damage. An RME roofer may install shingles, metal, tile, or composite material for a commercial roofing system. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Roofs are exposed to extreme temperatures, wind, rain, snow, hail, sun, and other elements. These factors cause the roof to deteriorate over time. In addition, the weight of heavy equipment, vehicles, and people can create cracks in the surface. When this happens, water leaks inside the building, causing significant damage to the interior.
If you suspect your commercial roof is damaged, contact a professional roofer at RME Roofing immediately. We will inspect your roof thoroughly and provide a free estimate. Once we determine what kind of work is necessary, we will recommend the best solution based on your budget and needs.
Depending on the type of commercial roof, the extent of damage, and the materials involved, fixing a commercial roof can take several days or weeks. RME Roofing will give you a rough idea of how much time it will take once they arrive.
Asphalt shingle roofs have been around since the early 1900’s. They were originally designed to last 50 years before needing replacement. However, due to the high cost of asphalt production, they became less expensive than wood shake, tile, slate, etc. In recent years, manufacturers began using recycled materials to make their shingles, making them even cheaper. Today, asphalt shingles are still considered a great option for homeowners who want to save money while adding value to their home.
Wood shake roofs are similar to asphalt shingles in appearance, however, they are not manufactured from asphalt. Instead, they are made from thin sheets of wood that are glued together. Wood shakes are generally thicker than asphalt shingles, giving them greater durability. Because they are made from natural products, wood shakes tend to be more expensive than asphalt shingles.
Tile roofs are often seen on homes built in the 1960’s and 1970’s. These tiles are made from clay and stone and are installed over a waterproof membrane. Tiles are durable and long lasting, but require maintenance throughout their lifespan. If properly maintained, tiles should last 20-30 years.
Slate roofs are extremely durable and weather resistant. They are also quite heavy, which makes them ideal for larger structures. Slates are commonly used on commercial buildings and government facilities.
Metal roofs are becoming increasingly popular among business owners looking for something extremely durable. Unlike traditional roofing options, metal roofs do not need any type of maintenance. They are lightweight and durable, and can withstand extreme temperatures and conditions. They are also fireproof and watertight, making them perfect for use in wet climates.
EPDM rubber roofing is a relatively new product on the market. Manufacturers claim that these roofs are environmentally friendly and provide excellent protection against leaks. They are also said to be highly resilient and able to handle harsh weather conditions. EPDM rubber roofing comes in two types: single ply and multi-ply. Single ply roofs are thinner than multi-ply roofs, which means that they weigh less and are easier to install. Multi-ply roofs are thicker and heavier, and therefore more difficult to install.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) roofing was once only used in industrial settings, but now many residential builders are choosing to use it as well. PVC roofing is inexpensive and offers good insulation qualities. It is also flexible and can be easily shaped to fit the contours of a building. PVC roofing is also recyclable and does not leach chemicals into the environment.
