We can offer a variety of systems when it comes to your roof...
but we also like to stick to the basics.
The membrane is bonded to the insulation, which has been physically attached, utilizing mechanical fasteners, stress plates and/or adhesives. Either non-reinforced or scrim reinforced membrane can be used, with the non-reinforced membrane making up most adhered installations. Fully adhered systems are lightweight and ideal for a wide range of building sizes and geometric configurations, including high-slope applications.
The ballasted system provides fast coverage at a relatively low cost. The EPDM panels are loose-laid over the insulation and held in place by smooth, river-washed stoned or concrete pavers. Ballasted systems are primarily used for large new construction projects, but can also be used on roof replacement or recovery projects where the existing structure can support the additional weight.
Mechanically attached systems can be installed using large panels and attached through the membrane, or using narrow panels attached in the side laps. Non-reinforced or scrim reinforced membranes can be used, depending on the needs of the building owner. The membrane is then attached using either round plates of batten strips to the underlying deck. Mechanically attached systems are lightweight and are ideal for all building sizes and configurations.
