Home Improvements That Pay Their Way

Reflective Metal Roofing

Reflective Metal Roofing

  • Reflective metal roofing saves on energy costs because it is able to reflect solar energy back into the atmosphere.  This reduces the amount of energy absorbed into your home.
  • Qualified roof products can help reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings.  This can reduce peak cooling demands by 10-15%.

The roofs that qualify are the metal roofs that have reflective qualities or the asphalt roofs that have “cooling granules.”  These roofs are specially designed to reduce the heat gain in the house thereby reducing the cooling costs.

United Roofing & Remodeling offers a wide variety of services designed to suit all our clients’ roofing needs.  For more information on any of roofing, siding, window, or gutter services, call us at 612-617-1717

There are several Metal and Shingle roofs listed on the ENERGY STAR qualified product list.

Benefits Of TPO Single – Ply Roof Systems For Commercial Properties

September 22, 2009

Thermoplastic Polyolefin Roofing Membranes

Thermoplastic Polyolefins are a “new generation” of single-ply roofing systems

A typical low-slope roofing system consists of three components: a structural deck, a thermal insulation barrier and a waterproofing membrane, which consists of reinforcing fibers or fabric sandwiched between two sheets of flexible matrix. The matrix material is either asphalt- or polymer-based.  In “single-ply” membranes, the matrix is made of flexible polymer.  The reinforcement provides dimensional stability for the membrane as well as strength to resist stresses in service.  It is generally made of chopped short glass fiber strands packed in a mat, or continuous polyester fiber arranged in a grid or in a non-woven mat.

Benefits of TPOs
The following benefits and characteristics of TPO are:

  • environmentally friendly and recyclable
  • seams can be heat welded
  • available in many colors
  • resistant to heat and UV degradation
  • resistant to may chemicals
  • good cold-temperature flexibility
  • no external plasticizers added

The result is an ideal commercial roof systems that is reliable and cost effective.  The TPO system is one of the latest single-ply, flat roofing technologies on the market today.  United Roofing & Remodeling is proud to install these systems.  We carry 2 types of the TPO roofing products; TPO and TPO-1.

Single-Ply Membrane Roofing Installation And Repair Services In Minnesota

TPO, EPDM, and PVC are the three major types of Single-Ply membranes

Single-Ply membranes have been around for over 20 years.  The biggest advantages to these single-ply systems are is that they are light weight per square foot.  This makes them an ideal choice for retro-fitting over an existing roof system.  This allows for quicker installation, less disruptions to the building owner, and most importantly, cost savings.  Many single-ply membranes are white and provide superior reflectivity, which in turn helps to reduce A/C costs during summer months.  These roof coatings are very versatile and can be applied on a large variety of roof systems.  Extremely durable & easily installed by authorized contractors without disruption to daily operations, the roofing system is also leak-proof, energy-efficient, chemical & fire resistant, resistant to high winds, & virtually maintenance-free.

The importance of roof coatings cannot be ignored if you want to avoid the complications of roof repair.  Select only quality products for roof repairing will assure you of the best results and minimize future repair costs to your property.
