Our Factory on Your Roof

Roofing materials go through a transformation process, starting as a liquid and ending up as a solid cover over our heads. Other commercial roofing materials, such as single-ply, are made of synthetic thermoplastic, polymers, and rubber. Once the material is manufactured in factories, it is then transported to the  construction site. These materials are heated and melted down and formed into the roofing materials used on commercial roofs. With the emergence of the Fluid Applied Reinforced Roofing (FARR) system, the factory is now your roof.

Because our system is fluid applied, it creates a seamless membrane, unlike other roofing systems that are glued or melted together, or held down with screws. FARR can be shaped or angled as needed, making it an ideal solution for complex roof designs. This seamless application adds many benefits to your roof.

Advantages of “Factory on Your Roof” Systems:

Waterproof – One of the main advantages of FARR is its ability to act as a waterproof barrier. Once the materials have hardened, it forms a tight seal, preventing water from penetrating and damaging the structure underneath. This is especially important when there is heavy rainfall or frequent storms.

Longevity and Durability – Another benefit of this system is its longevity. Since the materials are applied as a monolithic membrane, there are no seams or joints that can weaken over time. This results in a longer lifespan and reduced maintenance costs compared to traditional roofing materials.

Energy-Efficient – When leaks occur in your roof, this causes your HVAC system to work extra hard to regulate the temperature inside and can also damage your insulation. Because of FARR’s seamless design, there are fewer chances of a leak occurring. This system also has a reflective top layer that reduces the amount of heat that enters the building and lowers the roof’s surface temperature.

This roofing system not only extends the life of your current roof, it saves you money in the long run on maintenance and energy costs. The FARR system offers a seamless, durable, and energy-efficient solution that can withstand the test of time. With the factory now on your roof, we can ensure that commercial buildings and businesses are protected from the elements for years to come. To learn more, contact one of our team members here.
