A faulty roof might spell doom for your company & cost you thousands! Schedule annual commercial roof maintenance to maintain a healthy roof.
TPO roofing systems are one of the fastest-growing commercial roofing materials, as their costs have come down to compete with EPDM systems. This roofing system combines polypropylene and ethylene-propylene to create a one-of-a-kind and long-lasting roof. The white coloring of TPO roofing products, which does not have the heat absorption of other roofing materials, is one of its main advantages.
When compared to EPDM Roofing, which has more stages in the installation process, TPO materials come in large sheets with easy-to-install seams, lowering installation costs. Since it does not include plasticizers, it is also popular for "green" structures. TPO commercial roofing systems have exceptional longevity and total cost-effectiveness, and they even resist UV radiation damage.

EPDM Rubber Roofing
The Traditional Flat Roof
EPDM is a waterproof, cost-effective answer to your business roofing demands. It is the traditional leader among flat commercial roofing solutions. This type of roofing is made of a synthetic rubber composite, which makes it very durable and UV resistant. EPDM roofing is adaptable and long-lasting, even in Wisconsin's severe climate. While EPDM rubber's black hue might result in greater cooling expenses than TPO roofing, the prices in Wisconsin are significantly lower than in Southern regions.

Fluid Applied Roofing
Water and Weatherproof
Infinity Exteriors’ fluid applied roofing systems are a very simple and affordable alternative to asphalt and gravel roofing. These roofing systems create a seamless bond on commercial flat roofs. They include urethane and polyurea, which are popular choices for Madison businesses since the seamless layer that they create does not crack in cold temperatures. Sprayed Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation is also frequently covered using fluid-applied roofing systems such as silicone and acrylic.
Learn how a fluid-applied roofing system can benefit your business.
Bitumen Roof Systems
Flexible & Impact Resistant
Bitumen roofing material is the critical cap of Built-Up-Roof (BUR) systems. This roofing is popular with Madison company owners because it provides complete waterproofing and weather protection. Bitumen roofing systems withstand fractures produced by cold weather contraction better than asphalt and gravel systems when done by a professional roofing contractor like Infinity Exteriors, LLC. Bitumen roofing systems are available as independent SBS modified and APP modified materials, as well as for BUR.

PVC Roofing Materials
Low Cost, High Performance
PVC roofing membranes from Infinity Exteriors, LLC are a low-cost, flexible roofing option that protects business flat roofs from all types of damage. Ponding is common on flat rooftops, especially in Wisconsin during the spring thaw. A PVC membrane produces a watertight barrier that stops water from penetrating the roofing substrate and preserves it, and when the sun shines brightly in the summer, the PVC membrane can block out the UV damage.

Commercial Flat Roof Materials and Coating
Infinity Exteriors offer some of the best materials for commercial roofing like GAF, Versico, Mulehide TPO, and EDPM rubber roofing products. For Madison companies, we offer new roof installations, repairs, and commercial roof replacements. We also offer fluid-applied roofing systems, which provide totally seamless waterproofing for your roof, and are a popular alternative to flat roof replacement. Lastly, to extend the life of your low-slope roof, experienced Infinity flat roof contractors may apply a polyurethane-based Neogard roof coating.
We install built-up roofing (asphalt and gravel roofing) for long-term weather resistance and modified bitumen waterproof membranes on commercial buildings to provide the best protection against severe Madison Wisconsin weather. As a low-cost, low-maintenance commercial roofing material, we also offer PVC single-ply roofing.
Advantages of Flat Roofs
Flat roofs are less expensive to construct than pitched commercial roofs since they require less roofing material and are easier to install. Low-slope roofs are also less expensive to maintain than steep-slope roofs since they are simpler to walk on and inspect.
You'll have more useable space with a flat roof, which you may use for air conditioning units, solar panels, and other equipment. These systems also provide better thermal insulation, making them extremely energy efficient and ideal for windy areas.
Are flat roofs really flat?
No, not really. They actually are roofs with a very slight tilt, commonly known as "low-slope roofs," which have a very little pitch and just enough slope to drain water.
Logically, low slope roofs are typically more prone to leaks and ponding than pitched commercial roofs. However, this usually occurs in the case of poor installation and improper maintenance. With Infinity Exteriors, you won’t have to word about that. Our experienced contractors will ensure that frequent cracks and leaks will never be a problem for your roof.
Common Commercial Roofing Problems
The Basics: Heavy rain and snow on a commercial roof can form puddles that wear away at the roof material. The water then works its way inside, creating a leak.
Why it happens: A perfectly flat surface will not drain naturally after it rains or snows. Standing or ponding water can lead to expensive leaks from flat roofs.
How to prevent it: Professional roofing installation from Infinity Exteriors on a “flat” roof will include low slopes with a very slight pitch to drain water. Other features like flashing materials and gutters will also promote better drainage.
The Basics: Flashing weatherproof material is used to reinforce roof joints and seams. Leaks around flashing can weaken already vulnerable areas of the roof.
Why it happens: Chimneys, windows, and HVAC systems all create gaps in roofing material requiring flashing. If the flashing is not installed correctly, it won’t keep water out.
How to prevent it: Infinity Exteriors will recommend the right material and style flashing for your roof. We give you an estimate on installation and replacement so you know the costs upfront.
The Basics: Certain roofing materials like PVC or EPDM membranes can shrink under extreme conditions.
Why it happens: DIY roofing projects may mix incompatible materials, leading to a weaker membrane more prone to shrinkage. Poor installation may result in an ill-fitting roof with shrunken sections.
How to prevent it: Professional roof installation will result in a better fit with the right materials, reducing the chances of shrinkage.
The Basics: The membrane on the roof acts like a giant sheet. Tenting, billowing, or blow-off occurs when the membrane is not firmly attached to the rest of the roof.
Why it happens: Improper installation can cause sections of the membrane to separate from the roof. This leads to the loose sections blowing around or filling up with air.
How to prevent it: Expert roof installation and regular maintenance from Infinity Exteriors will keep the membrane material in check.
The Basics: A leak in a roof can lead to interior leaks. Water damage in an attic area often indicates an exterior problem.
Why it happens: Ponding water on the roof can leak through to the inside of the building. The moisture can weaken the wood and create the perfect environment for mold.
How to prevent it: Pay attention to the interior of your roofing. Any indoor leaks or water stains are likely being caused by a roof issue.
Bird & Squirrel Nesting
The Basics: Wisconsin winters drive animals to find any warm shelter. Attics and HVAC systems often seem suitable for small animals, providing them interior access to your commercial building.
Why it happens: Birds and animals only need a very small space to enter a building. Minor tears in roofing material are more than enough. Once in, they can wreak havoc on the rest of the roof.
How to prevent it: Reduce the potential entrances animals will create. Have the professionals of Infinity Exteriors fix all holes in your roof material, cover gutters, and watch for membrane shrinkage.
The Basics: Trees near your commercial building can fall or lose branches from severe weather or age.
Why it happens: Heavy tree limbs and sharp branches can cause a lot of roof damage. Even a small branch can penetrate a roof in the right conditions. A single tear in the weatherproofing can let water enter the building, leading to more problems.
How to prevent it: Keep trees near your building trimmed or hire a professional to handle your landscaping.
The Basics: Melted snow or ice needs to be drained from your commercial roof. Otherwise, the water may refreeze around the flashing or gutter system. This process creates ice dams. Water will build up around the ice. The more weight from ice, the more work your roof has to do.
Why it happens: Poor building insulation heats roof snow and ice from below, causing it to melt while the rest stays solid.
How to prevent it: Infinity Exteriors contractors will install insulation at your property to prevent the creation of ice dams and save energy. With heat no longer escaping through the roof, your heating system can take a break.
Exposed HVAC Systems
The Basics: HVAC systems are usually installed on the roof of commercial buildings to save floor space and provide more efficient heating/cooling services.
Why it happens: The physical components of a commercial-grade HVAC system includes a lot of parts and weight. This adds additional strain to the roof. Repair or maintenance work on the unit can lead to foot traffic damage as well.
How to prevent it: Always have your roof checked out before and after installing a new HVAC unit. Infinity contractors can check to see no part of the roof was damaged during the installation process.
Tears from Foot Traffic
The Basics: Modern buildings often have HVAC systems, chimneys, and other features located on the roof. People must then walk on the roof to reach these areas.
Why it happens: Regular foot traffic can lead to wear and tear. Certain types of shoes and heavy tools can damage roof material. These scrapes and rips ruin the weatherproofing.
How to prevent it: Only certain employees should be allowed on the roof for any reason. If anyone has to work on the roof, supervise the work.
The Basics: Like every part of your business, your roof needs regular maintenance. Ignoring any of these listed issues can lead to further roof damage in the future.
Why it happens: Many commercial properties are leased out, making it difficult to know who should be keeping tabs on maintenance issues.
How to prevent it: Employees should be trained to notice and report major problems. Hire Infinity Exteriors for regular checks and maintenance.
The Basics: DIY kits for minor roof repairs are available at most major hardware stores. Yet deeper roof issues are easy to miss and difficult to fix with these kits.
Why it happens: DIY kits are mass-produced and usually meant to create temporary fixes. Sometimes the results don’t work at all. In worst-case scenarios, inexperienced workers can injure themselves while on the roof.
How to prevent it: Call in the professionals of Infinity Exteriors whenever you need work done on your roofing. Not only are the results more reliable, it’s safer for your workers.
