There are many different types of commercial roofing systems. With our combined expertise, we have encountered most, and take pride in educating our team on any technological advances in our industry.
How to Find the Best Options for Your Commercial Roofing Project
Although simple and utilitarian, the main goal of a roof system is to maintain the watertight integrity of a building and keep its contents dry. Today’s variety of flat or low slope commercial roofing options are no longer simple and has grown considerably in the last 50 years.
You may ask, “Why have a flat roof on a building?” That’s a great question! Flat roofs are nothing new, nor are some of the proven materials that cover these often-expansive roofs such as those found on factories, warehouses, big and small box stores, apartment buildings, large public structures and schools/universities. A flat roof’s design is both efficient and economical.
TPO Roofing Systems Offer Flexibility, Versatility, and High Performance.
TPO is the fastest-growing commercial membrane roofing system around and is on the forefront of single-ply roofing technology. It’s engineered for superior, long-term performance and offers the added benefit of being environmentally sound. Those who’ve used and installed it find that its advanced reflectivity dovetails nicely with cool roofing solutions, helping to keep their storage facilities, warehouses, and working environments more cost efficient. Further, TPO offers reduced maintenance and is highly versatile, offering resistance to environmental pollutants and chemicals. And those in stormy areas will appreciate that it is abrasion, tear, and puncture-resistant. TPO provides LEED credit qualification, and is Energy Star rated and Cool Roof Rating Council approved.
Strong, with a Sensitive Side
EPDM is a synthetic rubber elastomer, manufactured for superior strength and flexibility. It also provides an impervious surface that doesn’t pollute rainwater runoff, making it an environmentally sound roofing choice. Additionally, EPDM is fire resistant, recyclable, and economical, qualifying building owners for LEED points and meeting ASTM standards for new membranes.
EPDM’s ability to withstand all types of weather conditions makes it a standout in locations that experience wide temperature fluctuations. It resists ozone deterioration and offers one of the highest tensile strengths of any membrane in the industry. It looks good, too. EPDM is available in a variety of thicknesses and provides a smooth and aesthetically pleasing finish. Black EPDM is a smart choice in cool climates to reduce facility-heating costs. In fact, a high- quality, professionally installed EPDM roof can last up to 40 years with regularly scheduled maintenance.
For years, low-slope metal roofing has been a favorite roof covering for commercial and industrial buildings because of its reliability against weather conditions. However, many building owners are recognizing some of the additional benefits to this high-quality option. Offering excellent durability and a sustainable footprint, metal roofing can extend the life cycle of your roofing system, offer a visually appealing exterior to your facility, and provide low maintenance requirements. Yet, to fully recognize those benefits, installation of your metal roof must be impeccable. That’s why you can count on Moriarty's superior metal roofing installation record.

Modified bitumen is a very durable product, especially in high-traffic areas and when confined to smaller roof areas with a high density of service equipment. The flexible nature of the “modifiers” allows owners to select a roof that is a thicker product and more resistant to building movement and metal-to-membrane interfaces than a built-up roof (BUR) system.
Elastomeric Roof Coatings.
What if you could protect your low-slope roof with a durable coating that would extend its useful life while reducing energy costs?
Good news—you can. Elastomeric roof coatings install over metal, modified bitumen, single-ply membrane, and built-up roof (BUR) systems. For many building owners, these coatings are an affordable way to protect the integrity of their low-slope roofs.
In the trade, “waterproofing” includes a wide variety of specialty applications of different waterproof products. Ultimately, commercial waterproofing services include the professional installation of waterproofing materials that will keep water out of buildings, garages and parking garages. Whether waterproofing a new or existing structure, Moriarty has the knowledge and tools to keep the water out.
