The importance of a roof to any building is paramount but the importance is determined by different factors. Industrial roofing for example comes in different types but its effectiveness is influenced by two important factors; the roof cladding and the insulation given.
This is the external layer of material that makes up the roof. Roof cladding is one of the most important elements in ensuring that roofing is protected from outside elements of nature and potential damage.
Roof cladding comes in all shapes and sizes with a wide range of materials that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing to suit the style of your building. The trending cladding materials in the market today include;
- Plastic roof cladding
- Fiber cement
- Roof insulation
Another factor in commercial roofing is roof insulation. Roof insulation plays a crucial role in saving energy costs in both residential and commercial buildings. In areas that experience extreme weather fluctuations, roof insulation is much needed, especially for commercial buildings.
Also, hot areas like Tucson need insulation to help keep the heat off the attic.
There are a wide variety of commercial roof insulation materials and they all vary depending on the type of material. With the help of a skilled roofing contractor, you can be able to get the best insulating material for your roofing project.
The most widely used commercial roofing insulation include:
- XPS (Extruded polystyrene)
- EPS (Expanded Polystyrene)
- Mineral wool
- And spray form
When evaluating the performance of a commercial roof insulator, you should have the following factors under consideration.
- The insulation R-value; which simply means how well a layer of insulator resists the flow of heat
- Its durability in handling what nature can throw its way and its impact resistance towards hail, debris, and other objects falling on the roof
How much can it resist fire?
