White Membrane Roofing Services
Local commercial buildings need to do whatever they can to keep their costs down and if you have been paying too much for heating and cooling every month, then the solution is right above your head. Your roof can have a huge impact on your commercial building’s energy efficiency. And one of the ways that you can make it more energy efficient is by investing in a white membrane roof.
White membrane roofs are designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof. You know how wearing white or light-colored clothes can help keep you cool on a hot, sunny day? Well, these roofs use that same principle to make sure that your building’s air conditioning isn’t working overtime to make sure that it’s a comfortable temperature.
Not only can switching to a white membrane roof decrease what you are spending on cooling your commercial building, it can also improve indoor comfort for spaces that are not air conditioned and extend the service life of your roof because it keeps it at a cooler temperature.
People in the area will also thank you for making the switch because white membrane roofs have also shown to help reduce local air temperatures, lower peak electricity demands, which helps prevent power outages and reduce power plant emissions which typically contain harmful substances like carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, nitrous oxides and mercury.
For all the benefits that white membrane roofs hold, it’s a wonder why not all commercial buildings utilize this type of roof.

White Membrane Roofing Installation
Installing a white membrane roof is typically very easy. It is installed in either a fully adhered or mechanically attached system.
The fully adhered method of installation is lightweight but provides outstanding design flexibility. It is best suited for contoured roofs, roofs with irregular shape and any roof with limited load bearing capacity. In this method, we install the membrane by gluing the material directly onto the insulation.
Mechanically attached uses fastening plates to secure the membrane. It is usually a faster method of installation, but it should never be attempted without the help of the professionals. This is because mechanically attached installation uses heat-welding to seal any gaps in the surface.
Though mechanically attached roofs are faster to install, it isn’t necessarily right for your building.
