Roofing Decisions Are Complex

by Michael Rew, Vice President of Technical Services, CentiMark

At CentiMark, we re-roof commercial and industrial flat roofs throughout North America. We install roof systems including: Thermoplastics (TPO, PVC), EPDM (rubber), modified bitumen, coatings, metal, spray polyurethane foam and BUR (built-up roofing).
