What is a Ballasted Roofing System?

Ballasted roofing is used on TPO or EPDM roofing projects that have no adhesive or mechanical anchor to a commercial roof surface, instead weighing down membranes using gravel.

In most cases, pairing TPO or EPDM with ballast will result in lower material and installation costs. However, lower costs shouldn’t mean that commercial property owners have to compromise when it comes to durability and quality.

Before we begin any new ballast EPDM roof installations, our team performs a thorough roof inspection to ensure that the roof has the load-bearing capacity to support the amount of gravel necessary to retain EPDM membranes in place.


Investing in a Ballast Roof System

At Erie SPF Roof Coatings and Insulation, we are experts in  ballast roof installations for commercial property roofs that are either flat or low sloping.

Our roofers at Erie SPF Roof Coatings and Insulation in Pennsylvania, also have a wide variety of ballast options available:

  • Make your commercial rooftop standout with beautiful smooth river aggregates.
  • Transform commercial rooftops into new functional spaces by laying pavers over EPDM membranes.
  • Secure weatherproof membranes in place with regular gravel or poured concrete for maximum durability.

Installing ballast material on your EPDM or TPO roof has several advantages:

Seasonal Adaptability

By forfeiting the use of adhesives to secure membranes in place, roof membranes can more easily expand or contract in accordance with seasonal temperature changes.

Additional UV Protection

Using ballast to secure roof membranes adds extra ultraviolet light (UV) protection to roof surfaces.

EXTREME Weather Protection

Ballast in the form of gravel helps protect weatherproof roof membranes from hail and heavy impacts.

Is the Best Option for Your Erie Business?

Using ballast to secure EPDM or TPO panels in place can help significantly prolong the lifespan of your commercial roof. However, ballast roofs aren’t right for everyone. Reach out to our team today and we’ll help you explore your full range of options.
