Roof Replacement

We replaced TPO roof with a 2-ply SBS Bitumen. This roof is built in layers and designed to protect the building in a way that most roofs can’t. With vents properly installed, the roof is well-sealed and the building can still breath. SBS properties give the roof flexibility to expand and contract with changing weather and temperatures without splitting and puncturing.
