Types of Roofing Systems

Published by Andrew Schmidt

As budgets continue to be a concern, and justifications need to be made, we wanted to help in your decision making process by explaining the roofing systems available to you by Showalter Roofing. We’ve chosen these systems as they are the most reliable and long lasting systems found in the industry today.

TPO Roof

Thermoplastic Polyolefin is a single-ply roofing system that can be fully adhered, mechanically fastened or  ballasted. The white TPO  material helps to reduce the heat

in the building and is many times the popular choice for ‘Green’ or energy efficient buildings.

Metal Roof

Metal roofing systems are increasing in popularity due to their durability and long     lasting wear. It is a larger cost upfront, but lasts the longest from all roofing systems out there.


Modified Bitumen Roof

Modified Bitumen


Modified Bitumen is asphalt based that has modifiers added to give it a plastic or rubber like finish. It is a durable roofing system that has a very long track record. It has either an aluminum coated or granulated surface.

What makes the roofing system last is the maintenance. By caring for the roof, you extend the life of the roofing system. The cost to maintain it continues to be cheaper and more cost effective than an early replacement. Roofs are easily forgotten, but if a leak in the roof begins, damage on the inside is inevitable.
