A strong, durable commercial roofing system is vital to any company. If you have client meetings in your building, you need a roof that will keep them safe and dry. If you store product in your building, that investment needs a roof that will keep it fresh and ready to be sold. At CMS Roofing we design, create, and install quality commercial roofing systems in NC and SC that business owners and property managers can count on for reliably protection and lasting value.

We offer a wide range of commercial roofing types, each one designed specifically for the building we install it on. Here is a brief explanation of each of these types. CMS Roofing is fully certified to install and/or repair each of these types of commercial roofing systems.

Modified Bitumen
This system was developed in Europe during the sixties and introduced in the U.S. in the early seventies. The term modified refers to the addition of plastic or rubber-based polymeric binders to asphalt to improve its performance and durability. Modified bitumen is used in multiple layers in what is essentially a “factory assembled” build-up roof. Several coats or laminations of modified bitumen are reinforcing mat, which is often covering with a granule-surface cap sheet, or left smooth for aluminum or white coating to be applied. Modified bitumen roofing exhibits many characteristics of built-up (BUR), yet affords the ease of application of a single-ply system. These membranes are resistant to heavy traffic, punctures, and tears.

Single-Ply EPDM
This thermostat membrane is compounded from rubber-polymer and is often referred to as rubber roofing. Some of the features that contribute to the popularity of EPDM single-ply roofing included long-term durability, including excellent resistance to temperature extremes, sunlight, ozone and moisture, ease, speed, and cleanliness of installation. This lightweight synthetic elastomer material has been used since the early 1970s. Another feature is adaptability. Varied application techniques such as ballasted, fully adhered, and mechanically fastened, allow EPDM roofing systems to be applied to virtually any roof surface: flat, spherical, curved, or slanted.

Thermoplastics PVC/TPO Single-Ply
Thermoplastic single-ply membranes are revolutionizing the commercial and industrial roofing industry. They represent the fastest growing segment of the U.S. roofing market over the past five years. The PVC product is a reinforced membrane with tough solvent-or-hot-air welded seams. This material has excellent durability and dimensional stability. The TPO product advances the category yet another step by combining the hot-air welding benefits of EPDM, the more traditional single-ply material. Both PVC and TPO are aesthetically pleasing, lightweight, and highly resistant.

Metal Roofing
Metal roofing is an increasing popular choice among commercial property owners, and CMS Roofing is a roofing contractor with deep experience in metal roofing systems. Metal roofing is known for its aesthetic appeal and durability.  Innovations in metal roofing coating systems and have significantly enhanced the performance of metal roofs.  Today’s metal roofs use a coated steel substrate that virtually eliminates worries about rust and corrosion. They resist fading, chalking, and cracking under even the toughest conditions, including high winds, hail and fire.
