Schefers Roofing offers the following roofing choices:

Single Ply Roofing

We install single-ply roofing systems from black EPDM (rubber roofing) to white PVC with heat welded seams (Thermoplastic), and TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin Membrane) by manufacturers such as Carlisle Syntec, Firestone, Genflex, Sarnafil and Versico & GAF.

EPDM
(Ethyl Propylene Diene Monomer) is an elastomeric rubber roofing membrane

PVC
(Thermoplastic Membrane) is an energy efficient, fiber-reinforced, light weight roof membrane

TPO
(Thermoplastic Polyolefin Membrane) is a high quality, reinforced membrane with superior tear strength and stability.

As the name implies, only a single layer of material is used to complete the roof. Single-ply membranes are flexible sheets of compounded synthetic materials manufactured in a factory to strict quality control requirements.

Your membrane is attached in one of three ways:

Fully Adhered System
A butyl-based adhesive that firmly secures the membrane to the substrate.

Mechanically Fastened System
Special fastening plates that are placed in various patterns based on building height, geographic location, deck type and building usage.

Ballasted System
Loose gravel or interlocking pavers keep the membrane in place.

A building owner should consider these systems for reflectivity, durability, maintainability, and energy costs.

Built-up and Modified Bitumen Roofing

Built-up roofing (BUR) multi-ply systems and Modified Bitumen systems offers options and performance advantages of strength, redundancy, flexibility and impact resistance which increases the system’s longevity and reduces the chances of premature failures.

A Built-up roof system is used frequently for low-slope roofs. By utilizing reinforcement felts and asphalt or coal-tar, a multi-ply system provides redundancy and strength to resist rooftop stresses and changing environmental conditions.

A Modified Bitumen roof system consists of multiple layers of bitumen and reinforcing materials such as polyester. Modified roofing systems use the basics of built-up roofing where redundancy is the key and bitumen is the waterproofing and adhesive, but is updated with polymer technology. Polymers are added to improve the product’s workability over wide temperature ranges as well as to improve toughness and retain water resistant properties. Modified Bitumen roofing systems are very versatile and can be used in most applications with adequate drainage. They are also easily repaired when required. Our manufacturers include Firestone, Tamko and Certainteed.

Standing Seam Metal

A Standing Seam Metal roof system offers a weather-tight monolithic steel membrane. Roof panels are lock seamed together to keep moisture out and assure structural integrity. This roof choice can be durable and long lasting when installed correctly on the appropriate buildings.

Standing seam metal offers low life cycle costs and durability. It will not crack, rot, split, warp, curl, or chip. It is superior to snow, water and airborne debris shedding capabilities. It is lightweight with minimum stress for the existing structure. It presents a designer look, and is visually appealing. It offers multiple color options
