ROOFING

JRC is experienced in various roofing systems, encompassing low slope options including TPO, EPDM, PVC, coating, and metal, as well as steep slope alternatives including shingles, tile, slate, and shakes.

Low Slope Systems

Low slope roof systems are designed with a pitch of less than 3:12, which means they rise less than 3 inches for every horizontal foot. These systems are engineered to efficiently manage water runoff, reducing the risk of ponding and leaks. Materials like thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are popular choices for their robustness and weather resistance. 

TPO

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) roofs are a popular choice for low slope commercial buildings for many reasons. TPO roofing systems are composed of a single-ply membrane offering exceptional durability and flexibility. One of the primary advantages of TPO roofs is their energy efficiency; they reflect sunlight, reducing the heat absorbed by the building and lowering cooling costs. Additionally, TPO roofs are known for their resistance to UV rays, chemical exposure, and punctures, which enhances their longevity and minimizes maintenance costs. The material is also lightweight, making it easier and less expensive to install compared to other roofing options.

EPDM

EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) roofs are a popular choice for low slope commercial buildings due to their durability, flexibility, longevity, and cost-effectiveness. This type of synthetic rubber roofing membrane is highly resistant to extreme weather conditions, including UV radiation, ozone, and temperature fluctuations, which makes it ideal for a variety of climates. Their installation process is relatively straightforward, and they are available in large sheets that minimize seams and potential leakage points. The standard white EPDM sheets are often used to reflect heat which in turn reduces facility cooling costs.

PVC

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) roofs are a popular choice for low slope commercial buildings due to their durability, energy efficiency, and low maintenance requirements. These roofs are made from a single-ply membrane composed of polyvinyl chloride, which is highly resistant to UV radiation, chemicals, fire, and harsh weather conditions. The material's inherent flexibility allows it to accommodate building movement and thermal expansion, reducing the risk of leaks and structural damage. Additionally, PVC roofs are highly reflective, contributing to significant energy savings by reducing the heat absorbed by the building.

STEEP SLOPE SYSTEMS​

Steep slope roof systems offer a dynamic blend of functionality and aesthetic appeal. Characterized by their pitch, typically exceeding a 3:12 ratio, these roofs efficiently shed water, snow, and debris, ensuring optimal drainage and structural integrity. With a wide array of materials available, including shingles, metal, tile, slate, and shake, commercial properties can tailor their steep slope roofs to complement architectural styles. 

SHINGLES

Shingle roofs, composed of individual overlapping elements, offer a versatile and cost-effective roofing solution for steep slope commercial buildings. These roofs provide excellent durability and weather resistance, making them suitable for various climates. One of the key benefits of shingle roofs is their aesthetic appeal, as they come in a wide range of colors and styles, allowing businesses to enhance their building's curb appeal. Additionally, shingle roofs are relatively easy to install and repair, which can reduce maintenance costs and downtime. Their energy efficiency can contribute to lower energy bills by reducing the heat absorbed by the building.

METAL

Metal roofs are an increasingly popular choice for steep slope commercial buildings due to their durability, energy efficiency, and longevity. They are highly resistant to extreme weather conditions, including high winds, heavy snow, and hail, reducing the risk of damage and costly repairs. The reflective properties of metal roofs contribute to significant energy savings by reducing cooling costs, as they reflect solar heat rather than absorbing it. With a range of styles and finishes available, metal roofs can also enhance the aesthetic appeal of commercial buildings, adding a modern and professional look.

TILE

Tile roofs are an excellent choice for steep slope commercial buildings due to their durability, aesthetic appeal, and energy efficiency. Made from materials such as clay and concrete, tile roofs are renowned for their long lifespan This longevity translates to reduced replacement and repair costs over time. Additionally, tile roofs provide superior resistance to harsh weather conditions, including heavy rain, high winds, and fire, enhancing the safety and structural integrity of commercial properties. The thermal mass of tiles helps regulate indoor temperatures, reducing the need for excessive heating or cooling and lowering energy costs.

SLATE

Slate roofs are a premium roofing option for steep slope commercial buildings, renowned for their durability, aesthetic appeal, and long lifespan. Made from natural stone, slate tiles are exceptionally strong and can withstand severe weather conditions, including heavy rain, snow, and high winds. One of the most significant benefits of slate roofing is its longevity. Additionally, slate roofs are fire-resistant, providing enhanced safety for commercial properties. Their elegant and timeless appearance also adds significant aesthetic value, enhancing the building's overall curb appeal. Moreover, slate is an environmentally friendly material, as it is natural, recyclable, and energy-efficient.

SHAKE

Shake roofs offer a unique blend of aesthetic appeal and practical benefits for steep slope commercial buildings. Their rustic charm enhances the architectural character, making them an attractive choice for businesses looking to stand out. Beyond aesthetics, shake roofs are known for their durability and longevity. The wood’s natural oils make the shingles resistant to insect damage and decay, reducing long-term maintenance costs. Additionally, shake roofs provide excellent insulation, contributing to energy efficiency by keeping buildings cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Their robust construction also provides reliable protection against wind, rain, and even moderate impacts.

COATINGS

A roof coating is a protective layer applied to the surface of a roof to enhance its performance and durability. Typically made from silicone, roof coatings provide a seamless membrane that shields the roof from the damaging effects of weather, UV radiation, and other environmental factors. Roof coatings can be applied to existing roofs to extend the life of the system, or applied to new systems to enhance the protection and durability of the system.

SILICONE

Silicone roof coatings offer a multitude of benefits to commercial low slope roofing systems, making them a smart investment for facilities seeking to extend the lifespan and durability of their roofs. These coatings provide an extra layer of protection against the elements, including UV rays, extreme temperatures, and moisture, thereby preventing premature deterioration and damage. This protective barrier also helps in reducing energy costs by reflecting sunlight away from the building, thus minimizing heat absorption and the need for excessive air conditioning. Additionally, they are relatively easy to apply and maintain, reducing the need for costly repairs and downtime.
