Home Re-Nu Can Handle Repairs and even the full Replacement of the Following Roof Types:
TPO, or thermoplastic polyolefin, single-ply roofing membranes are one of the fastest growing commercially used materials used in roofing because of its performance and installation advantages. Some of the major benefits is its heat resistance, resistance to ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure.
Other TPO Benefits Include:
- Quick installation that will save money and time
- Heat welded seams do not fail as often
- Many colors available other than white
- Repairs are as simple as cutting and welding
- They last 30+ years
- They have extended NDL and material warranties and long-term warranties
Modified bitumen roofing is manufactured to meet both industry and code requirements. It is designed for waterproofing and is reinforced with a polyester mat which is then coated with a polymer-modified asphalt. The granule-surface roofing is made to be used in unison with a polymer-modified asphalt for low-slope areas of your roof that will be long-lasting. System guarantees are available for up to 20 years when you choose modified bitumen roofing. Bitumen roofing does not take an open flame, torches, hot asphalt or solvent-based adhesives to apply. It is suitable for primed plywood decking and other substrates.
This synthetic rubber roofing membrane is extremely durable and widely used on low-sloping buildings across the United States. It uses ethylene and propylene that are derived from oil and natural gases. EPDM comes in both black and white and is sold in widths ranging from 7.5 feet to fifty feet. It also comes in two thicknesses, 45 and 60 mils. EPDM can either be installed fully adhered or mechanically, with the seams of the roof system sealed with liquid adhesives or special tape.
LIQUID APPLIED ROOFING SYSTEMS
Liquid Applied Roofing Systems (Coatings)
If you need a seamless waterproof membrane, liquid-applied systems are a great choice. It is able to conform to many shapes and is idea when faced with a confined urban space, restricted access or many roof penetrations.
If your roof has a standing water problem, liquid membrane systems form an excellent bond, is elastic and highly protective which makes it exceptional at waterproofing. The surface can be covered with reflective coatings, granules for aesthetics or a cap sheet to cool your roof.
