Take care of your commercial roof in Central MA

LJ Construction in Dudley, MA has many years of experience in installing, repairing and maintaining commercial flat roof systems.  These products typically include:
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) – Available for over 50 years, PVC roofing is one of the oldest commercial flat roof products.  PVC roofing sheets are seam-welded tight with a special heat gun. Naturally light in color, PVC has excellent heat-reflection properties.
TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) – Like PVC, TPO is another membrane roofing material but uses newer technology and more environmentally friendly materials. It can be fully adhered or mechanically fastened and offers more resistance to UV degradation than PVC.
Asphalt – Perhaps the oldest flat roof material, this can consist of multiple built up layers of tar paper and asphalt, with a top layer of gravel or UV reflective coating, or rolls of modified bitumen sheets with the seams sealed with asphalt.  Although less expensive, asphalt can be less durable than PVC or TPO.
It is important that Worcester area businesses with flat roofs schedule periodic inspections.  With slopes as low as 1/8 inch of drop per horizontal foot of roof, commercial flat roofs are highly sensitive to leaks.  Our commercial roofing experts can determine if you have any issues with ponding, seam sealing, or penetrations and recommend appropriate maintenance or repairs.
Don’t get complacent about the flat roof on your Sutton or Douglas business.  If you suspect a leak or need a repair on an older roof, contact LJ Construction today for an inspection of your Worcester area commercial roof.
