Unbeatable Quality Your Company Can Depend On
No matter if you’re building a brand new commercial building or moving into a 100-year-old old facility, the roof is one of the most important structural elements of your commercial building. A roof protects your building from rain, snow, and hail. It also keeps the inside comfortable no matter what the weather is like outdoors. If you want to keep this important structure doing its job, your commercial roofing must be installed correctly, taken care of regularly, and replaced when necessary.
Commercial roofing can last for decades with proper installation and adequate maintenance. At Front Runner Roofing, we are here to help you throughout the process.

TPO Roofing (Thermoplastic Polyolefin)
Thermoplastic Polyolefin is one of the fastest-growing commercial roofing systems on the market. A TPO roofing system is a single-ply roofing membrane made up of a single layer of synthetics that can be used to cover flat roofs. These are popular because the surface is naturally reflective. Additionally, they are easier to install and more reliable than other materials.
TPO membranes are manufactured in sheets that are 10, 12, or 20 feet wide. The sheets are manufactured off-site and then rolled and transferred to the work site for installation. Today, about 40% of commercial roofing installations are TPO.
EPDM Roofing (synthetic rubber)
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing material. It is used worldwide and is one of the most popular flat roof systems. It’s widely used because it is sold in a variety of widths and thicknesses to meet your needs and is the most durable material on the market. In fact, EPDM rubber roofing has the industry’s longest single-ply average lifespan of 25-30 years. It can be used on a variety of roofing shapes and slopes and has a very high resistance to wind, hail, UV radiation, and extreme temperatures.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
Modified Bitumen (MB) roofing is a 5-layer asphalt-based material that is best for low-slope or flat roof structures. This material originated in Europe and has been used successfully in the United States and Canada since approximately 1975 and is now one of the most trusted flat roofing systems used in the industry today. Modified Bitumen can withstand harsh exposure and extreme temperatures.
Metal roofing is still a very popular option in the commercial roofing industry because of its longevity and durability. In addition, it’s super lightweight which makes it easy to install and repair. Metal roofs are environmentally friendly and available in many styles and colors. They are often more aesthetically pleasing than other commercial roofing styles, making them a beautiful option.

How long should a commercial roof last?
The typical lifespan of a commercial roof is between 10 to 40 years. This varies based on the materials used, the quality of the installation, and how often it is maintained. By type, the longest lifespan is typically a metal roof at between 30-45 years.
How do I know which type of commercial roof is best for my business?
Because there are so many commercial roofing options available, the best way to determine what’s best for your building is to consult with one of our commercial roofing experts. Our roofing experts will work with you to determine the best roofing system for your facility based on climate, energy costs, and facility needs.
How often should I get my commercial roof inspected?
We recommend inspecting your roof twice a year, but once a year at a minimum without fail. It’s best to schedule this in the spring and the fall before you enter the heat of summer or freezing winters. This allows the roofing company to prepare the roof for the next season, and avoid any mid-season emergencies. Following a strict inspection and maintenance program can prevent major problems and irreparable damage to the interior of your building.
