Flat roofing material manufacturers :
Roofing your commercial building is neither cheap nor simple. We know that a lot of thought, even worry , hangs over the process. The decision to proceed begs the question “which roofing company do I trust with my building and my money?”
RSI is unique among area roofing contractors in several ways that should help you in your decision making process:
* Experience: Our 28 plus years in business speaks volume about our stability, knowledge, and reputation.
* Legitimacy: RSI has worked very hard to live up to our reputation for integrity and dependability. We are one of a very small group of roofing contractors to be certified by multiple roof system manufacturers as official installers. This allows us to offer warranties superior to what our uncertified competition can provide. RSI is insured, bonded, and trained on an ongoing basis. If you choose RSI, you can depend on us to do your job quickly, professionally, and to be there when something comes up several years down the road.
* Dependability: RSI is big enough to have the staff and crews, the vehicles, and equipment to respond to your needs – even in emergencies. Our client list is available upon request and a few of our projects our listed on the projects tab for viewing.
RSI warranties: Most flat roofing warranties are 15 or 20 year material and labor and installed according to manufacturer’s specifications and inspected by the manufacturer prior to issuance of the warranty. The warranty is paid by RSI and the building owner will receive a warranty issued by the material manufacturer for labor and materials for the specific building, this insures that the owner will have complete material and labor coverage for the stated period.
Please Note: The difference between a manufacturers material and labor warranty and a Roofing contractor’s warranty is like day and night. The manufacturer’s responsibility is a binding contract enforceable by law. The roofing contractor’s contract is basically a word of mouth contract. The roofer could become deceased, bankrupt, or go out of business.
(e.g., We received a call from the librarian in Ponca City, OK and she stated that we had a leak on their warranted flat roof. We dispatched a crew and found out that the leaks were not on the section of roof we did, but was on another section done by another contractor that had went bankrupt. The library had a manufacturer’s warranty and is now able to get the repair done with no cost to the library. If they had had a Roofing Contractor warranty they would be paying out of pocket for these additional expenses. This is an excellent example of why one should require a manufacturer’s material and labor warranty.)
Modified Bitumen Roofing:
Modified Bitumen “MB” membranes come in 45″ wide rolls and consist of an asphalt and polymer blend which allow the asphalt to take on characteristics of the polymer. There are several surfacing options for this system which include a factory mineral surface, a gravel surface laid in bitumen or a applied coating that is typically reflective in nature. Long-term 10 to 20 year warranties are available.
Most membrane sheets come in rolls of varying widths, lengths and thicknesses with the standard being 12′ wide and 50′-100′ long with the 60 mil thickness being the most popular, the latest advancement is “Fleece Backed” membranes, this allows for faster application and lower labor costs on large projects and application over older roofs, fleece back is available in 100, 115 and 145 mil thicknesses, fleece back 145 has a hail resistance warranty of up to 3″ in diameter, 15 to 30 year warranties are available. There are some EPDM roofs that are over 5o years old and still performing well.
On a summer day, a black roof can reach temperatures in excess of 170 degrees. On the same day, the highly reflective surface of a TPO, PVC or EPDM white roof can be as low as 110 degrees. As a result of the high reflectivity and emittance qualities of the white membrane, much less solar radiation is transmitted through the roof and into the facility.
RSI Metal Roofing Products
Stone Coated Metal Shingles
* Shingles are 16″x48″
* Will withstand hail up to 2 1/2″
* Boards and battens are installed with this type of roofing, therefore they can be installed over other roofing products, even wood shakes.
Standing-seam metal roofing panels (SSR)
* RSI only installs 24 and 26 gauge panels-26 is thicker than 29 or 32
* We do not install metal panels over any other roofing material, unless we picture frame and batten the roof first.
* All of our panels meet the UL-2218 Class 4 High Impact rating
* Some panels qualify for the “Energy Star Rating”, a $500.00 tax credit is available for 2013, the energy star rating is dependent upon the paint choice and it has to do with reflectivity and emissivity.
R-Panel and R-Panel Plus (Ag panels)
* RSI only installs 26 gauge
* With this type of panel all screws are exposed, sometimes thousands, even with neoprene gaskets on each screw, the chance of leakage down the road is too great.
* RSI installs very few of these panels on roofs, but there seems to be a lot of contractors installing these in our part of the country, looks like we will have a lot of work in the future.
* R-Panels are excellent for siding even in the 29 gauge range
Additional metal information:
* The bright aluminum/silver roofs you see on residential and commercial buildings are usually “Galvalume”, not the old barn Galvanized which will rust fairly quick compared to Galvalume. Galvalume consists of a steel-sheet substrate coated on both surfaces with a 55-percent aluminum-zinc alloy coating-meeting (ASTM A792).
Our Gaco Western elastomeric silicone coating is a excellent choice for rejuvenating leaking metal roofs and extending the life of all single-ply roof membranes, warranties are available in the 10-20 year range. Meets (ASTM D-6083) and is ENERGY STAR rated.
Gaco Western silicone coating was even chosen for the “White House” in Washington DC and NASA projects, it is the best of the best and meets the green roof requirements.
RSI is a fully insured and bonded commercial/residential roofing contractor. Our crews have the latest manufacturer technical training and we are a member of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA).
