Architectural Sheet Metal
A specialized type of roofing, typically involving steep slopes. Generally used on homes and smaller buildings
Built Up Roof (BUR)
A continuous, semi-flexible roof membrane consisting of multiple plies of saturated felts, coated felts, fabrics or mats assembled in place with alternate layers of bitumen and surfaced with mineral aggregate, bituminous materials, a liquid-applied coating or a granule-surfaced cap sheet.
A fluid material applied in the field as a film to the roof surface to provide weather protection to the original roof substrate.
Concrete of substantially lower unit weight than that made using gravel or crushed stone aggregate.
“Polymer-modified bitumen” – (1) A bitumen modified by including one or more polymers (e.g., atactic polypropylene, styrene butadiene styrene); (2) composite sheets consisting of a polymer-modified bitumen often reinforced with various types of mats or films and sometimes surfaced with films, foils or mineral granules.
Single Ply Roof
A roof system in which the principal roof covering is a single-layer flexible thermoset or thermoplastic membrane.
(1) A small unit of prepared roofing designed for installation with similar units in overlapping rows or courses on inclines normally exceeding 3:12 slope. (2) to cover with shingles; (3) to apply any sheet material in succeeding overlapping rows like shingles
A type of roofing shingle that has extremely low water absorption index, making it waterproof.
Steep Slope Roof
A category of roofs that generally includes weatherproof membrane types of roof systems installed on slopes at or less than 3:12.
Tapered Insulation System
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
A roof made of fired clay tiles
Crews arrive in 48-72 hours to inspect the roof, assess the condition and begin making temporary or permanent repairs.
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.
Building from the ground up or performing an expansion, it’s extremely important to select a roofing contractor that can deliver for you. Roof installation is a critical part of your construction schedule and it needs to be done professionally, safely, on time and on budget.
Ice damage, high winds, rain, and snow will take their toll on any roof. The preventative maintenance program is designed to take the worry out of roof asset management, while protecting and prolonging your roof.
Repairs 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.
Covering repairs to complete roof systems, including custom copper work, gutters and more in select areas.
Roof Asset Management
TectaTracker is Tecta America’s proprietary software tool. This dynamic asset management software system offers facilities managers a powerful tool to plan, budget, manage, and optimize their roofing portfolio.
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”.
A roof system that uses products made of highly reflective and emissive materials for its top surface. 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
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.
Assist businesses in utilizing their roof as an effective way to generate energy and find cost savings.
