Roofing is the process involved in covering the outermost part of a building/structure. It protects the building/structure and its contents from the effects of weather, heat, sunlight, cold, and/or wind. The characteristics of a roof are dependent upon the purpose of the building structure that it covers.
Low slope roofing systems are among the most commonly specified for commercial and industrial buildings. They are also the most challenging to install, demanding an uncommon level of skill to ensure longevity, integrity, and low maintenance.
Walton Roofing’s commercial division has a professional team of estimators, project managers, and superintendents who will ensure your job runs smoothly and in a timely manner.
FW Walton Inc. has built quality roofing systems for hospitals, NASA, hotels, government agencies, shopping malls, schools, hi-rise office buildings, industrial parks, plants, multi-use developments, museums, and many others.
Single Ply Roofing
Single ply roofing systems are one layer of roofing membrane over various cover boards and roof decks. Some common single ply roofing systems are TPO, PVC, and EPDM materials. Typical installation methods include mechanically attached, adhered, or ballasted. Single ply systems such as thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) and PVC membranes offer highly reflective roofs with low- temperature flexibility and high-temperature tolerance. They are resistant to chemicals and ultraviolet light and are easy to maintain. EDPM rubber roofing is a one-ply system that offers superior durability and is easy to repair.
Standing Seam / Metal Roofing
Metal roofing comes in a variety of patterns, including Straight, Curved, and Barrel. These types of roofs can be installed with exposed or hidden fasteners. Metal coverings can be very attractive and they are typically made of aluminum, copper, or steel and come in a multitude of colors. These systems are one of the longest lasting roof systems available when properly installed and have low maintenance needs and costs.
Modified bitumen roofing systems are multi-ply systems usually consisting of 2-3 layers of composite roll and surfaced with granules or foils. These systems are typically on low slope roof areas in conjunction with varying insulations and deck systems, but are sometimes installed on steep slope substrates. Modified Bitumen is asphalt with modifiers added to give it a rubber or plastic like properties to make it more durable.
Garden / Green Roof Systems
Stay Green! Green or Garden Roofs are composed of several layers including an underlying waterproofing system, soil, and vegetation. Benefits of this system include lower energy costs, improved air quality, reduced storm water runoff, and an extended roof life.
Elastomeric Roof Coatings
Roof coatings come in such materials as Silicone, Acrylic, Urethane, and more. They are typically used in a restorative capacity to prolong the lifespan of an existing roof and reduce energy costs. Roof coatings can be installed over existing modified bitumen roofing systems, built-up roofing, metal roofing, single-ply, and spray foam roofing. A well-done coating will protect a building investment, but should not be used in place of a commercial roofing system.
A built up roofing system is compiled from multiple layers of roofing materials laminated together with adhesive or asphalt. The roof system is usually surfaced with a gravel layer embedded in hot asphalt or adhesive but can also be surfaced with a granulized cap sheet or coating. It can be installed over a multitude of roof decks and insulations.
