Commercial Roofing Options Have Changed with The Times
As with every industry, commercial roofing is rapidly evolving to meet changing market demands. When it comes to installing a new thermoplastic ( TPO or PVC) roofing system, facility managers now have more options. Most thermoplastic roofing systems are mechanically fastened to the structural roof deck using screws and plates or oversized washers. However, a great option called RhinoBond has been gaining traction in the commercial roofing industry for nearly a decade.
Commercial Roofing Options Have Changed with The Times
This is a question many building owners struggle with. The answer varies depending on each situation. Understanding the type of roof assembly and the existing condition of your roof is important to make a good decision.
It’s amazing to see the number of buyers who purchase roof systems with the primary consideration being the type of roof system that will be installed. So little time is spent on selecting the contractor installing the roof system!
Safety and Roof Access Hatches
What are Roof Access Hatches?
Many roofs, especially low sloped roofs, are accessed via a fixed ladder or stairway leading to a roof hatch or scuttle. Most hatches are equipped with a hinged lid that has pistons or springs to assist in opening the lid along with a locking mechanism to keep it open. These fixed ladders and hatchways make climbing onto a roof more convenient than using an extension ladder.
6 Weeks + 8 Men + 33,608 square feet of retrofit over metal = one awesome garage.
Last month, CentiMark’s executive committee took a trip to meet Richard Rawlings’ and check out some of his sweet rides at Gas Monkey Garage. After getting to know our business, Richard hired CentiMark to perform some service work on his roof.

Actually, let CentiMark clean your roof.
White single-ply roofs do get dirty from debris, mold, pollution and environmental factors. To get the maximum benefit of reflectivity of the sun’s rays, improve the lifespan of the roof membrane and enhance the aesthetics of the roof, it’s important to clean your roof as a standard procedure of Preventative Maintenance.
As we begin our 47th year in business, we are now working to achieve our next goal – to become a billion dollar corporation.
Growth, diversification, new leadership, safety, service and technology were the milestones of this decade.
The 1980s were about growth. Starting with $5 million in sales in 1980, the company reached $50 million in sales by 1989. Five years later, $100 million in sales in 1994.
Edward B. Dunlap started D&B Laboratories in 1967 as a part-time industrial cleaning products business in the basement of his home in Pittsburgh, PA. Dunlap started Northern Chemical Company (later Northern Industrial Maintenance) with $1,000 and one associate in 1968. The upstart building maintenance products and services business produced first year sales of $98,500.
As we approach our 47th anniversary in business on April 19th, we want to thank all 3,500 CentiMark, QuestMark and CentiMark Ltd. associates for their hard work and dedication in the success of the company.
At CentiMark, we are certainly aware of the economic constraints and the restrictions for many building owners when it comes to their capital budgets.
A roof really is a building’s most important asset. In addition to protecting the building, its contents and the people inside, a roof can help conserve energy, capture sunlight, benefit the environment and, ultimately, save money.

The word “Mark” in CentiMark is specific to our company’s mark on the commercial and industrial re-roofing industry. In the 1970s, CentiMark Founder, Chairman & CEO Edward B. Dunlap instituted the CentiMark Single Source roofing warranty for both workmanship and materials. Tired of the disputes between workmanship (CentiMark) and materials (manufacturers), CentiMark’s Single Source warranty was a customer-service initiative that has stood the test of time.
CentiMark is the largest commercial and industrial roofing contractor in North America. We specialize in flat roofs. Typically, we install white TPO roofs or black EPDM roofs or white spray polyurethane foam roofs.
Although CentiMark is not a residential roofing contractor, we thought this press release on Baby Boomers influence on residential roofing was really funny. As baby boomers age, they are even influencing the color of residential roofs!
