St. Louis’ Commercial Flat Roof Systems Experts
Flat roofing systems are attractive for commercial buildings because they maximize the usable space in a building. They can, however, pose concerns for water drainage, UV-resistance, and durability.
Fortunately, there are many roofing systems and roofing materials available that overcome these concerns and provide commercial facilities with the necessary protection from the elements.
At Wildwood Roofing, we’re able to easily and effectively repair your flat roof system to extend its service life as long as possible. Here are a few flat roofing options we install and repair for commercial roofing clients in the greater St. Louis Area:
Modified Bitumen Roofs and Torch Down Roofing Systems
Commonly used on flat and low slope roofs, modified bitumen roofing is an asphalt-based roof membrane that can contribute to the waterproof capabilities and energy efficiency of your facility.
This roofing material is sometimes applied using the torch down roofing application method to ensure full adherence of the membrane to the substrate. Torch down roofing, when done correctly by a professional, can add some fire-resistance to your facility’s roof.

Spray Polyurethane Foam-Based (SPF) Systems
SPF roofing systems consist of two components:
- Polyurea foam for insulation
- An elastomeric topcoat as a weatherproof and UV-resistant roof coating
Together, SPF commercial roofing systems are effective at protecting your commercial flat roof from extreme temperatures and precipitation.

Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM) Systems
EPDM roofing systems, or ”rubber roofing,” are a kind of single-ply membrane which, with proper installation and drainage considerations, is effective at preventing ponding.
Ponding is when standing water forms on your roof 24 hours or more after precipitation. EPDM systems also help your rooftop absorb UV rays, unlike some metal roof counterparts.
Its ease of maintenance and flat roof repair makes it a good choice for some commercial flat roof applications.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Systems
A common type of single-ply roofing membrane, TPO roofing systems are made up of manufactured sheets that can be mechanically fastened with screws, ballasted with rocks, or fully adhered.
As with most single-ply roofing systems, special precautions must be taken with fastening around the perimeter of the roof to prevent uplift from high winds. TPO systems provide superior heat, puncture, and UV-resistance, making it an excellent choice for commercial flat roof applications.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) Systems
In recent years, PVC membrane roofs have increased in popularity for commercial flat roof applications.
The roofing system is inherently pliable, yet strong, making it exceptional at resisting punctures due to extreme weather or high traffic.

Built-up Roofing System
BUR roofing systems are characterized by having multiple layers.
These layers alternate between reinforcing roofing felt and bitumen, which can come in the form of tar, asphalt, or cold-applied adhesive. The multiple layers give heightened resistance to leaks and provide effective insulation for your facility.
