Whether you’re a building facility manager, a business owner, or a commercial property owner, your roof’s performance is essential to protecting your facilities and employees. When installing or replacing a commercial roof, the contractor and roofing system you choose will directly impact your company’s spending on maintenance over the years. A quality roofing system will also save your company in terms of energy expenses, whereas a poorly installed or lower quality roof system can end up costing you much more. When you’re choosing a roofing material for your new roof, it’s important to choose the system that will best suit your property and goals.


At A-Plus Roofing, we specialize in providing high-performance commercial roofing materials throughout the Twin Cities region. In this post, we’ll break down some of the most common flat roof materials to help you make an educated decision on a roofing material for your facilities.

EPDM Roofing

EPDM is short for ethylene propylene diene monomer, a type of highly durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane. EPDM is manufactured using a type of black rubber to create an elastomeric compound. The end result is one of the most cost-effective and long-lasting roofing materials. An EPDM roof is highly resistant to UV ray damage and ozone, lasting more than five decades if properly installed.

TPO Roofing

TPO stands for thermoplastic polyolefin. This single-ply material is much stronger than its rubber counterparts. It is also highly efficient, making it a much more environmentally friendly choice than other roofing materials. If reducing your company’s carbon footprint is high on your priorities list, a TPO membrane may be a good fit for your facilities. TPO is also resistant to mold proliferation, which can present a health hazard when it’s allowed to infiltrate your facility.

Duro-Last Roofing

Duro-Last is a single-ply roofing material that offers many of the advantages of other roofing materials. It is completely water-resistant, highly durable, and wind-resistant. Duro-Last is custom-fabricated by the manufacturer so your roof has fewer seams. Fewer seams mean fewer opportunities for water to leak into your facility.


Here are a few more advantages of using a Duro-Last system:

●        Easier installation

●        Energy savings

●        Chemical-resistant

●        Fire-resistant

●        Grease-resistant
