Metal Roofing Advantages

Choosing a metal roof offers a variety of advantages, including:

  • Longevity: Metal roofs are effective for between 40 and 70 years, depending on the material, much longer than the 12-20 years you get with traditional asphalt roofing materials.
  • Durability: From high winds to being able to resist impact from hail, metal roofs offer more durability and require less cost to maintain over the years.
  • Safety: Metal roofs will not spark and ignite into flames during a wildfire or lightning strike.
  • Energy Efficiency: With their ability to reflect solar-radiant heat, metal roofs can help you save as much as 25% on cooling costs.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Because metal roofs are made from a wide range of recycled materials, you don't have to worry about waste creation like you do with shingle roofs.

EPDM/TPO Roofing

A membrane roofing system gives your roof improved durability and is available in a variety of coatings. At Modern Builders, we have two types of membrane roofing systems available:

  • EPDM Roofing Membrane: Widely used on low-slope buildings, EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is consists of materials made from oil and natural gas to form a synthetic rubber membrane that is extremely durable.
  • TPO: Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is single-ply reflective membrane that is typically installed in a fully adhered or mechanically attached system, allowing the white membrane to remain exposed throughout the life of the roof.

Roof Coatings

Using a coating on your roof can help extend and restore your roof, allowing you to save money. With a coating, you can:

Restore and Preserve EPDM, Thermoplastic, Thermoset, and Other Membranes

  • Reduces membrane shrinkage, and chalking
  • Multiple chemistry options (Acrylic, Polyurethane, OneStep)
  • Reduces stress on seams, flashing, and penetrations
  • Lowers energy costs
  • Adhesion promoting primers used as needed

Extend the life of your metal roof at a lower cost than a full replacement. Get the project done fast with fabric-less roof coating systems.

  • Longest performing system in the industry
  • Polyurethane fabric-less seam sealer since 1977
  • System bends and stretches with the roof
  • Less disruption for your business

Restore existing asphalt substrates including Smooth BUR and Modified Bitumen

  • Reduce the amount of cracking and deterioration
  • Adaptable to nearly every type of asphalt membrane
  • High-tech stain blocking base coat keeps coating from being yellowed by oils in asphalt
  • Multiple chemistries for “tough” applications
  • Systems may be applied to new and aged asphalt or modified bitumen to provide immediate protection from weather, UV degradation and chemical deterioration
  • Lower the roof temperature, extend the roof life
