OU Systems and Services

There are a wide range of roofing systems and materials to choose from. The right solution for your facility really depends on the facilities goals and your budget objectives. Because Tecta America is certified on every major system, we can select the right system to meet your goals. We aren’t locked into any one system the way a smaller contractor might be.

Backed by state-of-the-art roofing equipment and the latest materials, our highly-skilled roofing professionals are capable of handling any type of project, regardless of size or complexity.

SYSTEMS

Architectural Sheet Metal

A specialized type of roofing, typically involving steep slopes. Generally used on homes and smaller buildings.

Built up Roof (BUR)

Composed of alternation layers of bitumen and reinforcing fabrics that create a finished membrane.

Coatings

A fluid material applied in the field as a film to the roof surface to provide weather protection to the original roof substrate.

Lightweight Concrete

Concrete of substantially lower unit weight than that made using gravel or crushed stone aggregate.

Metal Roof

A sheet metal product having an installed weather exposure less than 3 square feet per sheet.

Modified bitumen

Roofing system designed for use on buildings that have a low slope or flat roof.

Single Ply

These roofing systems are composed of insulation, a single ply membrane, flashings, and adhesive. TPO, EPDM, and PVC the three most common types of single-ply membrane systems.

Steep Slope Roofing

A category of roofs that generally includes weatherproof membrane types of roof systems installed on slopes at or less than 3:12.

Tapered Insulation Systems

This helps to reduce or eliminate the amount of ponding/standing water on the membrane when the existing roof deck does not provide adequate slope.

Waterproofing

The treatment of a surface or structure to prevent the passage of water under hydrostatic pressure.

SERVICES

Emergency Response

Crews arrive in 48-72 hours to inspect the roof, assess the condition and begin making temporary or permanent repairs.

Inspections

Roofs require regular inspections and maintenance to ensure roof system integrity and maximize service life. It is recommended that roofs are inspected twice a year.

New Construction

Building from the ground up or performing an expansion, it’s extremely important to select a qualified roofing contractor.

Preventative Maintenance

The preventative maintenance program is designed to take the worry out of roof asset management, while protecting and prolonging your roof.

Repair and Services

All roofs are vulnerable to deficiencies that can lead to leaks. Extreme weather- tornadoes, hail, heavy snow, downed trees, even seasonal freeze and thaw cycles can damage your roof.

Re-Cover

The process of installing an additional roof covering over a prepared existing roof covering without removing the existing roof covering.

Roof Asset Management

Tecta’s dynamic asset management software system offers facilities managers a powerful tool to plan, budget, manage, and optimize their roofing portfolio.

Roof Replacement

The process of removing the existing roof covering, repairing any damaged substrate and installing a new roof covering; also known as “tear-off and replacement”.

Roof Restoration

Repair roof structure to its original condition.

Skylight/Smoke Hatch Installation

An economical method for lighting a warehouse is generally when fire codes also require a system of smoke evacuation, skylight/smoke hatch combinations satisfy both requirements.

Snow Removal

If a roof collapses, you risk building damage, productivity loss, or worse, an injury to an employee. A roofing snow removal team will understand the complexities and layout of your roof.

ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTIONS

Cool Roof

Cool roof surfaces can remain at markedly lower temperatures when exposed to solar heat in service than surfaces of roofs constructed with traditional non-reflective roofing products.

Daylighting

Admitting natural light into a space, including distributing light at uniform levels, avoiding glare and reflections, and controlling artificial light to achieve energy and cost savings.

Green Roof

Green Roofs are composed of several layers including soil media and vegetation. Benefits of Green roofs include: Tax benefits, lower energy costs, LEED points and a longer roof life.

Solar Panel

A panel exposed to radiation from the sun, used to heat water or, when mounted with solar cells, to produce electricity direct, especially for powering instruments in satellites.
