Industrial Roofing Repair Guide

Oct 30

There are two types of roofs: residential and industrial. Industrial buildings can house all kinds of goods. Some goods require temperature control and other accommodation. Learn about the various types of industrial roofing materials available and how to repair them.

Large commercial properties are protected by industrial roofs at a higher level of protection than those in domestic homes. These roofs protect goods from extreme environmental conditions like temperature, humidity, and ventilation.

Let us look at the different materials and types of roofs that are possible to be repaired by Advosy.


TPO, also known as thermoplastic polyolefin, is a single-ply membrane applied to roof surfaces. It comes in sheets ranging in width from 10 to 20 feet and can be heat-welded together with a welding robot to create flat roofs that last for up to 15 years.

Tens of large rolls of Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) were placed yesterday morning by robotic arms amid temporary lights that were shining against the Ford Field skyline. This was part of the $100 million renovations.

Modified bitumen

Modified bitumen is also called torch-down roofing, torch-down roofing, or torch-down roof. It's a single-ply membrane used often for flat roofs. This single-ply membrane is composed of multiple layers of adhesive or fiberglass reinforcement. The top layer of reinforced rubber material is heated to make the material pliable. The top layer is then rolled onto the surface and then covered with gravel to protect from UV rays. These roofs can be used on top of existing roofing materials such as metal sheets/panels or concrete tiles. These flexible materials can withstand extreme heat, unlike other membranes which would melt or crack at high temperatures.

A built-up roof

Built-up roofing, also known as BUR (or built-up roofing), has been used since 1800. It is an excellent option for flat roof structures. It can be made up of layers of asphalt, gravel, or fabric-like material mixed with gravel. This will make it waterproof and prevent UV rays from entering.

Metal roofing

Metal roofing is used commonly for pitched industrial roofs. There are many options for metal roofing materials. These include aluminum, copper, and tin, as well as stainless and stone-coated steel and stainless steel. There are many options for metal panels in a variety of colors and designs. Metal panel systems today can last for many years with their industry-leading rust resistance properties. They are also resistant to extreme weather conditions. Metal panels can be attached with either an invisible or visible fastener. These attachment methods are more durable than those using visible nails.
