Why Hire All Florida Urethane?

Our roofing systems are 95% effective at stopping air transfer, and their seamless installation keeps your roof watertight. Our systems reduce heat loads by reducing cooling demands and save you money on AC. Our savings can help you pay for the roofing project in just a few years.

With the high solids and reflective silicone coatings, we can provide long-term watertight integrity, offering 10-15 and 20-year renewable warranties.

Our roofing systems can save you the major tear-off cost and help reduce your energy footprint. Additionally, we guarantee our silicones can stand up to ponding water.

For sloped roofs, the torch down or mopped down sheet is a popular choice. These systems usually fail within 3-6 years of installation. This is why a spray foam roof is a better investment for your commercial building.

There is a simple reason why torch down sheets fail. Asphalt moves with heat and cold. These systems are a fiber or polyester sheet saturated with asphalt. Some have additional chemicals infused to “slow down movement or break down,” but to make a long story short, they are asphalt.

Many times, improper heating during installation can cause blistering within the sheet. Seams usually break down within a few years of application. The ceramic white granule is usually gray, thus giving you very little in energy saving.

METAL ROOF

Metal roofs are durable and pleasing to the eye. They cover billions of square feet of roofing across the US. These roofs usually lack insulation. Batten insulation gets crushed and is really only 36-40% effective.

Movement is extreme when a surface temperature is 180-240 degrees and has a 70 degree rain drop onto it. The stress tears at the butyl on seams and laps and also degrades the neoprene under the fasteners.

Another challenge with metal roofs is that as soon as a seam or ridge vent lets moisture in, it drops rapidly and you have permeant sagging insulation in the ceiling. Our urethane roofing systems reduce thermal shock with high insulating properties.

Leaks are hard to find between seams or bolts. It only leaks with certain wind directions. Rake flashing or seams at joints can fail and remain hidden from sight. Our systems of Foam or Foam & Silicone roofing options can stop leaks and prevent water damage saving you stress and money.

 

A gravel roof is one of the oldest systems used in the roofing industry. Typically, these roofs were two—or three-ply rag felts mopped down and then covered with gravel for durability and to help with water evaporation as the rock heated up. Gravel also protects against wind uplift by providing ballast or weight.

One of the biggest downfalls of this system is that finding the leak can be very difficult and, in some cases, impossible. The additional weight is also hard on the building’s structure. Repairs will involve moving gravel around and often not putting it back where it was. This gravel usually weighs a minimum of 600-800 pounds per 100 square feet. Therefore, even a small building of 5,000 s.f. can have seventeen to twenty tons of weight overhead, stressing even the best-laid system.

With the 1990’s and early 2000’s hurricanes, the gravel aggregate became airborne debris. This system now usually requires a parapet wall for high-velocity wind zones.

With our roof system, we simply hydrovac the gravel. This is a clean, quick, and efficient means of getting rid of excess and useless material. In some instances, we can put the excess somewhere on site at the owner’s request or dispose of it properly if it is unwanted.

With the spray foam, we feel fastening the existing substrate is very beneficial after the rock removal and before the new foam application. With FM requirements met, the owner may receive some savings on their insurance premiums in the future.

SHEET SYSTEMS: TPO, EPDM & PVC

Sheet systems start out energy efficient usually due to the white outer covering/color. They are cost effective, especially for new construction. Many of these come with the “20 year NDL” warranties. They are functional but usually begin to breakdown at 5-7 years. Leaks are very hard to find on these roofs and the sun takes a major toll on the product.

While they are esthetically pleasing when new, be advised only to install them on a sloped surface, usually ¼ per foot slope. Typically, they are totally removed and replaced before or at the 10-year age period. Total removal is usually required and slightly disrupts the business.

Another challenge with sheet systems is that the membranes can be punctured if AC or HVAC personnel are not careful. Once poked, cut, or ripped, there is no secondary water barrier or stop. Plus, the system requires many fasteners to secure and may lead to more leaks than were originally noted with a failure of any of the seams or breaks in the surface. The insulation installed under these sheet systems in no way stops the water intrusion and in fact, may increase the severity. Be sure to check the warranties closely.

If you have one of these systems and need to seal them while you build the reserves, we offer a 10-year or 15-year High Solids Silicone Rubber System that can provide you with the water-tight integrity you need.

We overhauled the entire system with proven high-elongation silicone liquid rubber systems. Contact us to learn more.
