Explore the different types of roofing that STARR can install for your commercial building!

Built-Up Roofing (BUR)

Asphalt shingles cover more homes in America than any other roofing material. This roofing material is easy to install, provides excellent protection and it is often the least expensive roofing choice. Starr offers a wide variety of asphalt shingle styles and colors that are an affordable option for your Texas roofing system.

An asphalt shingle consists of a fiberglass or organic mat coated with asphalt, then covered with colored mineral granules for protection against the elements. Asphalt shingles are available in a range of grades. The better the grade, the longer the life expectancy, which can range from 15 to 30+ years. Here’s more about the advantages of this roofing material.

  • Easy to install. Asphalt shingles are among the easiest roofing materials to install. The size and flexibility of shingles make it easy to adapt them to any roof size and shape.
  • Low-maintenance. Many roofing materials require regular maintenance in order to retain their appearance and performance. But asphalt shingles are easy to keep clean, and can quickly be repaired or replaced if they are damaged.
  • Aesthetically pleasing. Asphalt shingles come in a wide selection of colors and textures. Our expert Texas roofing contractors can help create a design that will match the architecture and décor of your home. Certain asphalt shingles can mimic the look of wood, tile or slate, giving your home an elegant finish at a lower cost.
  • Lightweight. Although durable, asphalt shingles are still relatively light and will not place undue stress on your home’s roofing infrastructure. Heavier materials may require additional bracing or support before installation.
  • Affordable. An asphalt shingle roof can be one of the lowest cost options for roofing your home, giving you an excellent return on your roofing investment.

EPDM Single-Ply Membrane

Often referred to as rubber roofing, EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) membrane is a rubber-based product with a proven reputation for durability. Varied application techniques include ballasted, fully adhered and mechanically fastened, allowing EPDM roofing systems to be applied to virtually any roof surface.

Metal

While expensive compared to other commercial systems, metal requires little maintenance and often lasts 50-75 years. When it comes to fire, wind and impact resistance, metal roofing stands alone. With reflective coatings applied, metal can also be used to keep utility costs low. Its recycled content, recyclability and energy efficiency qualifies it as a “green” building product.

Modified Bitumen

One of the most common residential low-slope systems, modified bitumen combines hot asphalt (bitumen) with plastic and rubber additives which are layered between sheets of fiberglass or polyester. Its lifespan is determined by the number of layers installed.Modified bitumen roofing exhibits many characteristics of BUR, yet affords the ease of application of a single-plysystem. These membranes are resistant to heavy traffic, punctures and tears.

PVC/TPO Single-Ply Membrane

Thermoplastic single-ply membranes represent the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. commercial roofing market. Short for polyvinyl chloride, PVC is a sturdy, single-ply roofing membrane proven to perform well on both residential and commercial roofs. TPO, or thermoplastic polyolefin, is a newer heat-welded, single-ply roofing membrane that costs less than PVC and offers a 10-year rating. TPO reflects solar heat, making it a popular choice where energy efficiency is important. Both PVC and TPO are aesthetically pleasing, lightweight and highly resistant to wear.
