Our team of professionals has worked on a variety of roofs on municipal buildings, from flat roofs on newer structures to sloped roofs on historic buildings. Roofing materials for government buildings vary depending on the type of roof. We’re experts at working with slate, tile, and various flat roof systems as well.
Our goal is to perform work on your building safely and quickly without disrupting operations. We offer roofing inspections, repair, maintenance, and energy saving renovations to existing roofs as well as installations. Our team has experience working on historical municipal buildings throughout our service area, and we work on buildings at all levels of government: city, county, state, and federal. With over 30 years of experience, we’ve gained extensive knowledge about the logistics of working with various municipal building security protocols.
Flat roof techniques for municipal buildings include, but are not limited to the following:
- Single-ply roofing: This type of roof can contain multiple layers for reinforcement and are installed in one layer. It is resistant to UV radiation and is usually installed directly over roof insulation material. Single-ply membranes can be categorized into two groups: thermosets and thermoplastics. Thermoset membranes are compounded from synthetic rubber polymers and solidify permanently after heating. Thermoplastic materials can be repeatedly softened when heated and hardened when cooled.
- Modified bitumen roofing: This is a durable, weather-resistant type of low slope roof. Modified bitumen is a type of asphalt product that can be applied in a number of ways to the roof in both hot and cold temperatures.
- Built-up roofing: This type of tar and gravel roof is built layer upon layer so that it is exceptionally resistant to water and weather. Built-up roof surfaces may include the following: Slag, Gravel, Mineral granules, Glass-fiber or mineral surfaced cap sheets, Aluminum hot asphalt mopped over the entire surface, Aluminum coatings, Elastomeric coatings
