Connecticut's Choice For Commercial Roofing
Our commercial roofing services include design, installation, maintenance and repair. As commercial roofing projects tend to be built on large structures—such as shopping centers, warehouses or other industrial buildings—flat or low-sloped roofs are typically the preferable option. Flat roofs are generally easier and more cost-effective to construct, provide easy access for maintenance, are durable and long lasting and provide ample space for other equipment such as exhaust, AC vents, green roof materials or PV panels.
Commercial Roofing Services
As low-sloped and flat roofs tend to offer little natural water deflection and drainage, it is imperative to use high-quality, waterproof materials that not only provide fire resistance, but also solar reflectivity.
Our most common types of commercial roofing materials include:
- EPDM Roofs
- Hot Tar Roofs
- White TPO Roofs
- Torch Down Roofs
- Metal Roofs

- EPDM Roofs: EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) roofs are a common choice for commercial projects due to their superior durability and versatility. Sometimes referred to as rubber roofing, EPDM is primarily comprised of two ingredients: ethylene and propylene, derived from oil and natural gas. When combined, these create an exceptionally durable synthetic rubber membrane possessing the waterproof qualities required for a roofing material. EPDM is available in black and white, a wide variety of widths, and in two thicknesses: 45 and 60 mils. They are also typically easier to install, maintain, and repair than other commercial roofing systems.
- Hot Tar Roofs: Hot tar roofs are a time-tested building material, commonly used throughout the U.S. on commercial buildings for nearly 100 years. This multiple-ply roof system (or built up roof, BUR) is comprised of multiple layers of fiberglass-based asphalt and reinforcing plies to create waterproof layers.
- White TPO Roofs: TPO (thermoplastic) roof systems are a quickly growing trend in commercial roofing, comprised of a single-ply membrane made from ethylene propylene rubber. TPO roofs provide the durability of rubber with the performance of hot-air weldable seams (which is why they are sometimes advertised as a “seamless” roof). They are highly resistant to algae, tears or punctures, fires, chemicals, extreme weather, provide good flexibility for building movement and are environmentally friendly. In addition, a white TPO roof will also reflect the sun, reducing heat transfer into the building and thus, energy costs.
- Torch Down Roofs: Similar to hot tar roofing, a torch down roof is comprised of layers of tar and reinforcing plies. The name "torch down" comes from the method of application in which the sheets are torched down in overlap areas during installation to join seams together to create a large rubber, waterproof, sheet on a fiberglass base. This provides additional strength and resistance on your flat roof. Torch roofing typically is available in two-layer and three-layer systems.
- Metal Roofs: Metal roofing is also an emerging commercial roofing material. Common materials include aluminum, copper and steel. These provide high durability, fire resistance, great aesthetic appeal and a lightweight finish to your structure. In addition, metal roofing is easy and quick to install.
