The Right Roofing Company for the Job
After assessing iSynergy’s roofing needs, TEMA’s design-build team of professionals installed a system consisting of built-up insulation, scuppers and black rubber roofing.
Built Up Roof Insulation
The importance of a commercial building’s insulation can’t be overstated: it limits the effects of outdoor temperatures on the indoor environment and is key to reducing heating and cooling costs.
Scuppers (Drainage System)
Scuppers are openings that are incorporated into the walls at the edge of the roof. They sit slightly above the roof surface, and are typically only needed during times of heavy rain because they direct water down the side of the building. Other common drainage solutions include gutters, siphonic drains, and gravity drains.
Rubber Commercial Roofing Options
Rubber roofing is made of rubber or plastic polymers or a combination of both. TPO is the most commonly used. It is durable, flexible, and can be easily customized for your roof. PVC is known to be longer lasting and is also flame resistant, strong, and doesn’t affect energy efficiency. EPDM roofing is a great solution for cooler climates, as it has a durable rubber layer.
With its design-build philosophy, TEMA Roofing not only addresses roofing projects quickly and without conflict, but also speeds up delivery (by over 33%). Design-build allows TEMA to anticipate change orders, because the designer and roofing contractor are on the same team, and simplify the project timeline (by eliminating the bid and contract selection process) to get done quicker.
These aspects were extremely important because, as a small business, iSynergy did not want to disrupt day-to-day operations while the roofing project was being completed.
Preventative Maintenance and Future Roof Repair AFTER Commercial Roof Installation
In order to address some long-term initiatives for iSynergy, TEMA suggested preventative maintenance to maximize the lifespan of the company’s new commercial roof. In recent years, the roofing industry has helped consumers recognize the importance of regular up-keep when it comes to a roofing asset.
Preventative maintenance also ensures that roofing system warranties remain intact. This service can be implemented for any type of roofing system (EPDM, metal roofing, PVC, TPO, shingle, etc.) and includes access to TEMA’s Roof Asset Management (RAM) online client portal.
