Popular Materials for Your Flat Commercial Roof

With so many different materials available for your commercial roofing replacement, it can be a bit overwhelming to determine which type should get. It does help to work with trusted commercial and residential roofing professionals who can narrow down the choices as to what’s best for your property. Berry Roofing & Solar shares below some of the best materials to consider:

Popular Materials for Your Flat Commercial Roof


Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is a popular rubber roofing material because of its price compared to other types of roofing materials. It’s also lightweight enough that it can be done yourself if you have the equipment, but it’s recommended that you have it done by a trusted professional to ensure a successful installation. An EPDM roof that’s installed properly will have an expected lifespan of 20 years.


Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) is a roof replacement system that’s lightweight and highly reflective. The material is effective against most weather conditions and is highly resistant to tearing, punctures, chemicals, bacterial growth and ultraviolet (UV) rays. TPO roofing’s lightweight and weather-resistant properties are what makes it very popular among restaurants and other businesses that emit oils and/or fats from their ventilation systems.


The polyvinyl chloride (PVC) roofing system is composed of two layers of PVC roof material with a polyester material acting as a reinforcement between the layers. The layers include additives that make the roofing material flexible and resistant to UV rays. The welding installation process used in installing PVC roofs creates a permanent bond between each roofing sheet and keeps the seams securely together. It’s also lightweight and durable like EPDM and TPO while also having a long lifespan.
