Roofing Types We Offer

Unlike the roof on your home, the roof on your commercial building may not be as visible from the street, so you may not be as concerned with aesthetics as you are with quality, price, and durability. Luckily, when you work with Schram roofing for all of your commercial roofing needs, our experts will work with you to determine which type of roofing will work the best for your building and your budget. Continue reading below to learn about the different commercial roofing types we offer.


Thermoplastic Polyolefin, also known as TPO roofing, is a single-ply roofing membrane made of rubber or another synthetic material that is chemically adhered to the roof of a commercial building. This is one of the most common types of commercial roofing, as is budget-friendly and extremely durable. Most TPO roofing is designed with a white finish, which can be extremely reflective, resulting in lower energy bills. If you choose this type of roofing, you may not need to replace it for 22 to 30 years.


EPDM, or ethylene propylene diene terpolymer, is similar to TPO roofing, as it is also a synthetic rubber that can be adhered to the top of your commercial building. However, where TPO roofing is only offered in a white color, EPDM comes in both white and black colors, making it easier for you to choose the right style for your commercial building. In addition to having UV resistant properties in both the black and white styles, EPDM is also extremely durable and can withstand the elements, as well as hail, weathering, low temperatures, extreme heat, and fire.

Mod Bit

Modified Bitumen (Mod Bit) roofing is another common type of roofing that you may have seen. This type of roofing is asphalt-based, and it is designed for buildings with a low slope or a flat design. The Mod Bit type of roofing is also designed to withstand exposure to environmental elements, which for businesses in Nebraska, is necessary to keep up with the unpredictable climate. What makes this type of roofing so durable is its five-layer system. All Mod Bit roofing is equipped with five layers:

  • Insulation
  • Modified base sheets or piles
  • Modified bitumen membranes
  • Adhesive
  • Surfacing 


Metal roofing is also extremely popular for commercial buildings, as it is extremely durable and built to last. In fact, most commercial metal roofs can last between 40 to 70 years, ensuring you get the most out of your investment. Another benefit of choosing metal roofing is that there are a variety of different options and materials, from the style of roofing to the type of metal used. On top of that, another benefit is that metal roofs come in a variety of colors, which can be a huge bonus if your roof will be visible from the street.


When you hear the term PVC roofing, you most likely picture a roof lined with white plastic pipes. However, in terms of roofing materials, PVC, or thermoplastic polyvinyl chloride, is very similar to TPO and EPDM. PVC roofing is also a single-ply membrane roofing material, but unlike the other types of single-ply membranes we’ve discussed, PVC roofing is known for being extremely long-lasting and more eco-friendly than the others.


If your roof has seen better days, but it’s not yet time to completely install a new roof, applying a roof coating could be the solution to your problem. Roof coatings are made of a liquid copolymer or silicone raw materials, helping to preserve your roof. With that in mind, roof coatings can also be applied to your new roof to make it even more durable and extend the life of your new roof.
