Commercial Roofing Products & Services

Kelley Brothers Roofing provides the top products and services to building owners and general contractors in the Midwest area for all types of commercial roofing solutions.

Built-up Roofing

A built-up roofing system is created from multiple layers of roofing plies and adhered with hot asphalt or adhesive. The surface is then normally coated with a gravel layer that is embedded in the asphalt or adhesive. However it is not uncommon to use a granulized cap sheet or coating instead of the gravel layer for the surface cover. Built-up Roofing systems (BUR) are known for their thermal performance (resistance to conductivity of heat between the interior and exterior of the building). BUR systems are also known for being very competitive in cost per year of expected service life when compared to other high-performance roofing systems.

Green Roofs

Green Roofs or Vegetative Roofs are roofs that are comprised of several components. An underlying waterproofing system is required of course followed by some type of soil or vermiculite and then finally the plant life. A Green Roof of this type has many benefits such as lower energy costs, reduced water runoff, improved air quality and an extended roof life. Many of these projects also qualify for LEED programs. Kelley Brothers has successfully installed many green roofs over the years.

A different type of ‘Green Roof’ would include photo voltaic or solar voltaic roofing systems. These systems are not ‘green’ in the sense that plant life is growing on the roof, but they are designed to generate electricity thereby reducing the buildings ‘footprint’ when it comes to energy consumption. Kelley Brothers Roofing is very familiar with the different types of solar panel installations and experienced at installations of these systems.

Metal Roofing

Metal Roof, Soffit and Wall panel systems are extremely popular in the entire United States. They are colorful and provide a distinctive theme to a building’s curbside appeal and appearance. If designed and installed correctly, they will provide a very effective long term weatherproof building envelope element.

Modified Bitumen

Modified Bitumen (Bituminous) roofing systems are generally multiple layers of roofing plies of a composite roll and coated with granules. Older style asphalt roofs will degrade quicker due to expansion, contraction, and UV rays. And asphalt style roofs needed weight to hold the roof down, MB is actually attached to the roof thereby lessening the need for additional weight. As with Built-up Roofing, MB is known for thermal performance and cost effectiveness when looking at expected service life.

Pavers and Plaza Decking

Many office buildings and condominiums these days are being built with patios or decks for the employees and residents to come and sit. These patios are being constructed with different types of pavers and decking that still require the building envelope remain water tight. Kelley Brothers Roofing has installed pavers for everything from small personal balconies up to large plaza decks. Pavers and plaza decks in general are an attractive and maintenance free way to accent any outdoor area.

Repair and Maintenance

Commercial Roofing Experts, Roof Manufacturers, Real-Estate / Property Managers, and many other experts involved in Commercial Construction have endorsed the economic benefits and effectiveness of routine Roof Maintenance Services. In fact, most roof manufacturers require routine roof maintenance as a condition of their written warranties.

The useful life of a roof may be extended well beyond the Roof Manufacturer Warranty expiration date through a planned and competent Roof Maintenance & Repair Program.

KBR offers a wide variety of Roof Maintenance & Repair Services to its customers as well as Tenant Finishes for businesses moving into an existing building.

Preventive Maintenance

One of the most important services you can do to help your roof is regular roof maintenance. A regular program of inspection and evaluation of roof surfaces, seams, flashings, etc. will help extend the life of your roof well beyond the life of the warranty.

In addition to extending the life of the roof, a regular maintenance program can often find and prevent problems before they become problems. Preventing leaks before they happen can help save money in terms of costly roof repairs as well as damage to the building, machinery, and product that is underneath the roof.

Shingle Roofing

Shingle roofing is most commonly associated with personal homes. However, there are situations where commercial, industrial, and institutional roofing will use shingle roofing for their projects. Many condominiums, schools, churches and office buildings may use shingles for their entire roofing project or even for something as small as a front entrance or canopy. KBR has years of experience installing the right type of shingle roof that will compliment your project completely.

Single Ply Membrane (Rubber) Roofing

Single ply roofing is a very popular type of commercial roofing product for low sloop roofs. Single ply systems are typically sheet membrane products of various widths installed over insulation boards and roof decks. The most common single ply systems available are EPDM, TPO, and PVC systems. A chart of typical uses for each of these systems is listed below. The type of installation for these systems will vary depending on the type of membrane used but will generally consist of mechanically fastened, fully adhered, spot adhered, or ballasted.

Membrane types

  • EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is a rubber material that only comes in black and eco-white and is very durable when it comes to temperature variations.

  • PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) is a vinyl material that is typically seen in white and is known for its reflectivity as well as its high resistance to punctures

  • TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) is another roofing system typically seen installed in white for its reflective qualities. TPO meets the criteria for LEED and EnergyStar programs.
