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).
Roofing decisions include considerations of building use, climate and budget.
Roofs must withstand more attacks from nature than any other building component. These factors include: large temperature range of performance, thermal shock (large temperature swings), solar radiation (UV and heat), rain, snow, airborne pollutants, fungal attacks and wind forces.
