About different commercial roofing systems popular in the Toronto & GTA
Mod Bit is commonly known as Modified Bitumen, a roof that features more than two layers of bitumen sheets. The latter is installed with a gas torch forming a light-coloured roof coating reflects sun light to keep the indoors cool. This roof type is suitable for a busy, commercial place where keeping the indoors cool is of prime concern to reduce the electricity bill.
Built-up roof consists of alternating layers of reinforcing materials and asphalt that render a smooth finish. It’s high tensile strength and water-resistance makes it perfect for commercial places. It allows ease in conducting sectional repair and replacement services, without interrupting other activities. This is why busy buildings have built-up roofing over other types.
Tar & Gravel
Tar and gravel roofs are comprised of three to five laminated layers of asphalt-based sheets, roofing felt and tar. Another layer of bitumen and a mineral coating is also added to make it tougher. To reflect sun rays and protect the layer from damage, light-coloured gravels are utilized to cover the dark patches. It can be time-consuming as this roof type involves a lot of layering to make the roof sturdy.
Rubber membrane roofs, also known as EPDM, ethylene propylene diene terpolymer roofs are black in colour, durable and temperature resistant. They are flexible as well which signifies that they can expand and contract smoothly without breaking. For this reason, commercial buildings exposed to extreme temperature generally have this roof type installed over others.
Thermoplastic membrane or TPO features a single layer made of polypropylene rubbers and ethyl propylene. It is light in colour which helps the roof in reflecting harsh sun light thus keeping the indoors cool. This roof is water-resistant and sustainable which means it can last for several years. These attributes make this roof one of the suitable options for commercial places.
Poly vinyl or PVC roofing is commonly known for its fire-resistance and solar-reflectivity. It is constructed from a continuous filament lattice, a scrim. This is laminated with variants like TPO, PIB, TPE and PVC thermoplastics. It is very flexible which makes it suitable for further customizations without much hassle.

Some of the common commercial roofing types are EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride).
This depends on the roofing system you’re choosing for your commercial building. The pricing differs because each of the roofs require specific raw materials and treatments.
Flat roofs are common on large commercial buildings because their installation and maintenance are convenient. They also offer an efficient use of space, both inside and outside. Commercial roofs need space to place the HVAC system and other vents. Maintenance costs are also relatively low as this type of roof is easy to repair and replace.
The most common materials used to make commercial flat roofs include rubber rolls, EPDM, TPO, tar & gravel, BUR, PVC and modified bitumen. Since flat roofs are prone to water clogging, it is necessary to protect the roof with a waterproof sealant. This also increases its longevity.
Costs vary depending on location and materials used. Single-ply roofs cost less than double-ply roofs. Speak to the roofing company to get an exact quote after they make their inspection.
The lifespan of a commercial flat roof ranges from 10 to 15 years, depending on the material from which it is made. Replacement is required when damage is irreversible or when the repair costs are substantially higher than the replacement cost.
It is ideal to inspect a commercial flat roof annually, preferably before winter so that snow, storm and rain do not damage it any further. The inspection interval is determined by your roof’s age. If it is new, the first professional inspection should be done in the fifth year; then on the tenth, thirteenth and fifteenth. Thereafter it is best to get it inspected annually
The chief way to increase the lifespan of a commercial flat roof is to get regular maintenance. Other common methods include applying a coating to stop water from entering the roof membrane. A protection guard saves flat roofs from direct UV rays.
Commercial flat roofs accumulate debris quickly so it is advisable to clear it monthly. Regular debris removal also reduces on roof leakage.
Licensed contractors are trained in methods of flat roof installation and repair. If you opt for an annual inspection, repair or replacement, it is always best to hire licensed and experienced professionals.
