What Is The Life Expectancy of A Commercial Roof?

  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC): 20 to 30 years
  • Metal roofs: 30 to 45 years

What Affects The Expected Lifespan of A Commercial Roof?

Determine if it's time for a new commercial roof installation near Connecticut by checking out common factors that impact a roof's lifespan below.

  • Poor Installation: If your previous roofing company failed to follow best practices during the installation, it's likely to cause recurring problems.
  • Slope: When water doesn't flow off the roof properly and pools on the surface because of low spots, leaks and damages will soon follow.
  • Ventilation: Limited ventilation in the attic space below a roof leads to a build-up of heat and moisture, baking the roofing materials and causing rot and mold.
  • Maintenance: If you haven't kept up with routine inspections and maintenance over the years, smalls problems can quickly become major ones.
  • Weather: In addition to being exposed to the elements every day, severe weather conditions like high winds and hail can cause serious damage to roofing materials.

Roofing Types, Techniques & Materials

Commercial roofing is sometimes described by the type of roof on the building:flat, low slope, shed and steep slope, for example. In other cases, roofing is described by the installation technique – such as “built-up roofing,” “standing-seam roofing,” “single-membrane roofing,” and “torch-down roofing.”

More frequently, roofing is described simply by the material being installed. Here are brief descriptions of the main commercial roofing materials being used today:

  • EPDM roofing is sometimes referred to as “rubber roofing” because this roofing membrane material (technically known as ethylene propylene diene monomer) is black and flexible like a rubber inner tube. EPDM roofing can be installed on flat and low-slope roofs. Seams between adjacent EPDM sheets and metal flashing elements are typically sealed with special adhesive.
  • TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) roofing is a single-membrane system, just like EPDM roofing. Created in large rolls, TPO can be installed with mechanical fasteners or by fusing seams with heat. The white TPO material used most often does a good job of reflecting solar radiation, which helps to reduce the demand for air conditioning in hot weather.
  • Modified Bitumen Roofing is applied in rolls that are usually heated with a torch to seal seams and adhere the asphaltic material to the substrate and to flashing details. The popularity of more modern single-membrane systems (EPDM & TPO) has reduced the demand for modified bitumen roofing.
  • Asphalt Shingle Roofing will always be popular. Plenty of commercial buildings with sloped roofs depend on asphalt shingles for weather protection. This roofing option is among the most affordable and allows building owners to choose from many shingle styles and colors.
