At Rhino Roofing LLC, we understand that a commercial flat roof is an important investment that requires careful consideration. That's why we take the time to evaluate each building's unique needs and recommend the best possible solution. In this blog post, we'd like to highlight one of our recent commercial flat roof projects that involved the use of modified bitumen and how we follow safety protocols to ensure a safe job site.

The project in question was a mid-sized commercial building with an aging flat roof that was in need of replacement. The building owner wanted a durable, energy-efficient roof that could withstand the harsh weather conditions of the area. After conducting a thorough evaluation, we recommended a modified bitumen roofing system.

Modified bitumen is a type of roofing that combines the best features of asphalt and plastic. It's composed of a base layer of asphalt, which is then reinforced with one or more layers of plastic. This creates a strong, flexible, and waterproof membrane that's ideal for flat roofs.

We began the project by removing the old roofing material and making any necessary repairs to the decking and insulation. We then installed a new modified bitumen membrane using a torching method. This method involves heating the membrane with a gas torch in order to melt it onto the decking and create a seamless and waterproof barrier. We also installed new modified bitumen flashings and penetration details, which are critical for maintaining the integrity of the roof and preventing leaks.

We also took care of all the necessary permit and inspections which are required for commercial flat roofing.

One of the things that sets Rhino Roofing apart is our commitment to safety. We understand that working on a roof can be dangerous, so we take every precaution to ensure the safety of our workers, the building occupants, and the surrounding area. All of our workers are OSHA certified and trained in fall protection, scaffolding, and other safety protocols. We also conduct regular safety meetings and inspections to ensure that everyone is following the proper procedures.

The project was completed on time and within budget, and the roof looks great and is performing exceptionally well. The building owner is thrilled with the results, and we're confident that the modified bitumen roof will provide many years of reliable service.

If you're in the market for a new commercial flat roof, we highly recommend modified bitumen as an option. It's a durable, energy-efficient solution that can meet the needs of most any building. Plus, Rhino Roofing has years of experience with modified bitumen roofs and will provide you with a quality job while making sure that safety comes first.
