Coronado is a popular resort city in the San Diego peninsula, but it also is a major industrial hub. Sea ports and the presence of the U.S. Naval Air Station drive industry as well as the local economy. There is endless opportunity for growth in the industry sector and developments are springing up across the city. Tourism may drive the people to this city, but the growing industries bring business and growth. It is important to have quality industrial buildings to present to these new developers and businessmen.
Industrial buildings depend on quality roofing to protect the inside equipment and business. The buildings are often very large which means the roofing needs to be large and sturdy and able to protect from any adverse weather conditions or stress. Most industrial roofing is flat or low sloping because this is easier to access for maintenance and also allows for storage of heavy equipment such as HVAC. Despite the fact that flat roofs are easier to install and maintain, it is still important to keep them regularly maintained. Low sloping roofs have a tendency to allow debris build up which can cause clogs and damage, so be sure to inspect your industrial roof frequently to identify any potential damage.
When it comes to industrial roofing, there are five main types typically used. Your choice will depend on budget, building size and style as well as the local climate and weather conditions.
- Built-Up Roofing: This roofing consists of multiple layers of material that are laminated together to form a protective and weatherproof system.
- Modified bitumen: This roofing system is asphalt with added modifiers that make it plastic or rubber-like, which makes the material more durable and longer lasting.
- Metal roofing: Metal roofing is not the best when it comes to flat roofs, but is a great option of low sloping roof systems. Metal roofs are typically made from copper, steel or aluminum and add an attractive look to any building.
- Single ply roofing: This type is also known as TPO or PVC and is made of four elements; an adhesive, an insulation layer, flashing and a one ply membrane which is usually made of rubber or plastic.
- Spray foam: This material is typically sprayed on in liquid form and it makes a seamless, continuous protective layer around pipes, vents and other protruding pieces across the roof. Because of the large amount of vents and pipes in industrial buildings, this type of roofing is very popular.
