Experience Matters

With over 30 years combined experience installing roofs on apartment buildings, schools, churches, and businesses, Innovative Building and Design has extensive experience in various styles of commercial roofing.

The roofing systems that Innovative Building and Design install last for years, problem free!

EPDM Roofing Systems

Typically EPDM roofing systems are what we recommend for commercial properties with flat or low-slope roofs. EPDM roofs are made out of an affordable rubber roofing material which doesn’t cost property managers a fortune. This rubber is a synthetic rubber: ethylene propylene diene monomer.

EPDM rubber is an excellent insulative rubber that is resistant against the cold, heat, and water. While being an affordable commercial roofing option, EPDM roofs will still provide a durable roof cover that will adequately protect your commercial property. These rubber roofs are also more affordable to install, reducing costs for property owners. In the case that your EPDM rubber roof does need repair down the road, they are also easy to repair, saving business and property owners the hassle of installing an entirely new roof. Finally, the last reason EPDM roofs are our top recommendation is because they are a great replacement roof that can be installed on-top of existing roofing. This also is a way to save the property owner from having to pay for the hassle of removing an old roof just to install a new one.

TPO Roofing Systems

A TPO roofing system is also a common roofing option for commercial properties with flat or low-slope roofs. Like EPDM, TPO is an ethylene-propylene rubber that is an affordable roofing option for most commercial property owners. While the differences between EPDM and TPO are few, TPO roofs have a few advantages. First, TPO rubber roofs are manufactured to be sealed with a heat welder creating a slightly better seal than EPDM rubber.

TPO rubber is also considerably more environmentally friendly than EPDM. Finally, TPO roofing systems are known to resist multiple harmful chemicals while EPDM only withstands a few. TPO roofing is a great option for commercial property owners looking for a long lasting roof for their low-slope or flat building structure.

PVC Roofing Systems

PVC roofing systems are yet another commercial roofing style that Innovative Building offers as a roofing option for flat or low-slope roofs. While PVC roofing systems are more expensive, they are a higher grade of thermoplastic.

Like TPO roofing, PVC roofing has an extremely durable heat welded bond that is the strongest seal in the industry. Innovative Building encourages commercial property owners in Minnesota to reinforce their PVC roofing system, as they have been known in some cases to shatter in extremely cold weather.

BUR Roofing Systems

Built up roofing systems or “BUR roofs” are a layered roofing system comprised of layers of a tar-like liquid that is hot-mopped onto the surface of the roof. Once applied the compound is then layered and re-applied with gravel placed on top of the finished roof to protect it from cracking in the heat. Built up roofing systems have been a favorite style choice for commercial roofing since the 1850’s, over 100 years!

Besides being totally puncture proof, built-up roofing systems are also the most affordable commercial roofing option. Built-up roofing systems, or BUR roofs, are what Innovative Builders recommended as the most cost-effective roofing style for flat, or low-pitch, commercial property roofs. Business owners can still expect longevity from their built-up roofing system, also having peace of mind knowing there is a very low-risk of damage.

Slate Roofing

While slate and tile roofing are both hefty investments, the long term durability of each of these two roofing styles can be worth the price tag from some commercial business properties.

If you choose to roof your commercial property with a slate or tile roof, you can be confident that the roof will outlast the structure it’s built on! Even the cheapest manufacturers of both slate and tile offer lifetime warranties on their products. The average commercial property that installs slate or tile roofing have a roof that lasts around 50 years! Both slate and tile are low maintenance, another added perk for everyone looking to install a roof on a commercial building.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is one of the most durable roofing options offered on the market today. In the roofing industry, only clay tile roofing is known to last longer than metal roofing. Metal roofing can come in any color, offering an aesthetic variability to business owners that other roofing options can not.

Contrary to most perceptions metal roofing doesn’t only come in different colors, it comes in various makes, styles and finishes. Metal roofing can actually imitate any other roofing style on the market. This gives commercial owners the flexibility to get the exact look they desire for their structure. Innovative building also loves installing metal roofing because they are maintenance free and environmentally friendly.
