Commercial Industrial Roofing's energy efficient options can help make your facility more earth friendly. We are concerned about the environmental impact of our materials and roof systems.
A green roof, or roof top garden, is a vegetative layer grown on a rooftop. Green roofs provide shade and remove heat from the air through evapotranspiration, reducing temperatures of the roof surface and the surrounding air. On hot summer days, the surface temperature of a green roof can be cooler than the air temperature, whereas the surface of a conventional rooftop can be up to 90 F (50 C) warmer.
Green roofs can be installed on a wide range of buildings, from industrial facilities to private residences. They can be as simple as a 2-inch covering of hardy groundcover or as complex as a fully accessible park complete with trees. Green roofs are becoming popular in the United States, with roughly 8.5 million square feet installed or in progress as of June 2008.
Benefits and Costs
In addition to mitigating urban heat islands, the benefits of green roofs include:
Reduced energy use: Green roofs absorb heat and act as insulators for buildings, reducing energy needed to provide cooling and heating.

Knowledge is KEY to selecting the correct roof system for your facility.
Commercial Industrial Roofing's expertise with commercial and industrial roofing allows us to help you choose the appropriate roof solutions for your facilities. We have the ability and experience to furnish and install each of the primary roof systems.
THERMOPLASTIC (PVC, TPO and Fleece Back) Roofing
Lightweight, reinforced, highly reflective, light colored membrane. Highly resistant to chemical atmospheres, ozone, ultraviolet light, tears and extreme weather conditions. Exhibits excellent fire resistance and seam strength due to heat welding.
Lightweight, synthetic elastomer material. Resilient, tensile strength, elongation, resistant to ozone, ultraviolet light and ponding water.
SPRAYED POLYURETHANE FOAM
Sprayed on the roof as a liquid and adheres to most any properly prepared substrate. Dries quickly and forms a seamless monolithic waterproof barrier that can add both insulation and provide drain characteristics. Can provide for increased reflectivity, fire resistance, and various other attributes.
Coatings are used for roof surfacing, maintenance or repair, weatherability, reflectivity, ultraviolet light protection or aesthetics to enhance the performance of the installed roof system.
MODIFIED BITUMEN & BUILT-UP ROOFING
Modified Bitumen: Composed of either asphalt reinforced with polyester or fiberglass and, in some cases, with factory-applied surfacing. Installed typically in multiple layers, resistant to heavy traffic, puncture and tears.
Built-Up: Multiple layers of felts, fabrics or mats saturated with bitumen installed rooftop. Can be surfaced with gravel, mineral cap sheets or smooth weather resistant coatings. Ideal for resisting mechanical damage.
Architectural and structural systems utilizing galvanized steel or aluminum. Custom panel sizes, profiles, colors and finished coatings are available. Long-term weatherability, low maintenance and aesthetic value.
