Go to the Top When You Need a New Roof!
Getting the right roof is important for the maintenance of any building, especially for a commercial or industrial property. But deciding which kind of roof to install isn’t usually an owner’s biggest concern. We get it, finding the right contractor to trust with your project can be stressful. Whichever roofing system is needed, expert installation is the key to how well your roof will perform over the years.
No need to worry, as one of southern Wisconsin’s largest roofing contractors, CCI’s roofing team of professionals are experts in the installation of all types of roofing system material – TPO, EPDM, PVC, and metal. Each system has its pros and cons when it comes to a building’s location, design, and purpose. Our goal is to work in partnership with our clients to ensure they have the best roofing solution to fit your needs.
Roofing Solutions – On Time, Every Time.
Recently, CCI constructed a 500,000-square-foot industrial warehouse, owned by Phoenix Investors, in Beloit, Wisconsin. The roofing system, a 60mil TPO, is known for holding up well to long-term sunlight exposure. TPO was the ideal solution since it is also resistant to puncturing, tearing, and water damage. It even retards bacterial growth and dirt buildup. All these qualities make the roof easier to maintain and keep in good condition despite the extreme Midwest weather changes.
Mechanically attached, the TPO system is made up of two layers – a 3.6-inch EPS installation and ½-inch-per-foot tapered EPS saddles for positive drainage. The material used is a Mule-hide Product, known for quality low-slope roofing products since 1906.
As Homer Auge, CCI’s Vice President of Roofing Operations, points out, “what made this installation especially impressive was the fact that our roofing team finished the project on schedule despite extremely long lead times. Over the last few years, a lack of available products has delayed many similar installations. By working closely with our vendors, we were able to avoid delays by bringing in roofing material from multiple states.”
Meeting the timeline for this project was not only important to the client, but to the entire Beloit community. According to Frank Crivello, chairman and founder of Phoenix Investors, “the warehouse will result in hundreds of new jobs in Beloit and make a significant contribution to the local economy”. As Auge stated, “that made it doubly important to us.”
EPDM Roofing Systems Are Highly Durable.
Another type of roofing system that the CCI team installs frequently is EPDM. Made of ethylene and propylene derived from oil and natural gas, this material provides the longest average service life of roofing material. EPDM comes in black and white and is sold in various widths and two thicknesses. It can be used on either low or steep slope roofs and is highly resistant to extreme temperatures, wind, and hail. Installation of EPDM membranes is done by adhering the membranes to the substrate with deck adhesive. Or they can be installed using a ballasted system that is mechanically attached to the substrate.
A PVC Roofing System Is Versatile.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) roofing is a single-ply roofing membrane that’s often used on flat roofs for restaurants and other buildings. It’s more resistant to fire, wind, and chemical exposure than other membranes and can last decades. An environmentally friendly option, it is available in a variety of different colors, thicknesses, and widths and has the flexibility to fit almost any roofing project.
Metal Roofing Systems Are A Popular Option.
For a 20,000-square-foot roof at Sand Valley Resort in Rome, Wisconsin, CCI’s roofing team installed 24-gauge standing seam metal roofing with Sno-Gem snow bars manufactured by Union Corrugating. The project had unique challenges because the area is prone to high winds. So, it was difficult to install the heavy steel panels safely. Plus, the wind blew sand all over the roof surface, making it dangerous to walk on. By using ariel lifts, planks, and toe boards, CCI overcame the challenges and was able to complete the project safely and on time.
Metal roofing is initially more expensive than other systems. But as Auge explains, “Installing a metal roof may be more cost-efficient in the long run since it’s extremely long-lasting. When properly maintained, a metal roof can last between 30 to 50 years – considerably longer than other roofing systems.” It also sheds rain and snow easily, has a Class A fire rating, and is regarded as environmentally friendly because metal is recyclable.
