Ballast Roofing Systems
With 40 years of excellence in the roofing industry, Command Roofing has established itself as a leading
expert in roofing solutions for a wide range of structures, including expansive commercial and industrial
buildings. Among the diverse roofing systems we offer, the commercial and industrial ballast roofing system
shines as a dependable choice. This roofing system is frequently deployed in large-scale structures such as
warehouses, factories, government buildings, schools, and commercial facilities, and it relies on the use of
substantial materials, aptly named "ballast," to serve as an anchor and protective layer for the roofing
membrane. Command Roofing specializes in the installation of ballast roofing systems, catering to industrial
and commercial clients located in the southwest Ohio region.
Benefits of Commercial and Industrial Ballast Roofing Systems:
- Immediate Waterproofing: The ballast material provides immediate protection to the underlying roofing
membrane, offering a robust defense against the elements.
- Wind Resistance: The weight of the ballast material helps anchor the roofing membrane, making the system
highly resistant to wind uplift, which is particularly important for buildings in regions prone to
- UV Protection: Depending on the ballast material used, such as gravel or pavers, this roofing system can
enhance UV resistance and extend the lifespan of the roofing membrane.
- Cool Roof Properties: Certain ballast materials can contribute to cool roof characteristics by reducing
heat absorption, potentially leading to energy savings.
- Durability: The ballast layer provides physical protection to the roofing membrane, reducing the risk of
punctures and damage from foot traffic or falling debris.
- Low Maintenance: Ballast roofing systems are generally low maintenance, as the ballast materials help
shield the roofing membrane from wear and tear.
- Protection Against Ponding Water: Properly installed ballast systems can promote positive drainage,
reducing the risk of ponding water on the roof, which can lead to leaks and membrane deterioration.
In summary, with Command Roofing's four decades of roofing expertise, a commercial and industrial ballast
roofing system provides numerous advantages, including cost-effectiveness, wind resistance, UV protection,
cool roof properties, and durability. Nevertheless, it's crucial to take into account factors like
structural load capacity, accessibility, drainage design, and compliance with warranty requirements when
selecting this roofing system. The meticulous design and precise installation by Command Roofing are pivotal
