- Industrial roof systems are suited to flat roofs.
While flat roofs aren’t universal, they’re the most common style for industrial applications. This is for a number of reasons. First, due to their sheer size, large industrial facilities would need to be extremely tall to accommodate the sloped roof styles we see on smaller structures. A flat roof also provides space for heating and cooling equipment away from the production floor. Finally, flat roofs are comparatively less expensive than peaked options.
That’s why it’s essential that your roofing installer is familiar with the unique demands of flat roofs, from load bearing requirements to the difficulties of standing water and buckling. Choosing a roofing system designed to address these issues will help ensure a longer lifespan and better performance.
- Industrial roofs are optimized for durability.
A building’s roof doesn’t just keep out the elements – it also keeps a number of hazards from harming the overall structure. Because industrial roofing materials are designed for years of reliable use, they’re built to keep out water, guarding against leaks, mold, mildew and rot. You’ll also find options that help prevent damage due to UV rays, hail, extreme winds, acid rain and more. Many industrial roofing products are also rated for fire resistance, providing additional peace of mind for any facility that handles flammable materials and other volatile components.
- Industrial roofs are tailored to your specifications.
While there are many quality commercial and residential roofing systems on the market, not all of them are appropriate to the budget and performance standards of industrial facilities. And no matter what lies at the top of your priority list, an experienced industrial roof installer can help you choose the best options to accommodate your needs. So whether you’re concerned about the roof’s total weight, exposure to chemicals or environmental impact, it’s easy to find a combination of features and functionality that will work for you.
