The Right Roofing System Starts at the Top
When designing a building, one of the most important assessments to make is deciding on the roofing system that is best. With more than half a century in the business of building, Danpal has seen a lot of roofing come and go, and the company’s experience and expertise can make your decision-making a lot easier. Danpal is on the cutting edge of the latest innovations in construction and we’re constantly improving our existing products. Over the years, we’ve developed a roofing system that is both fundamentally sound and energy efficient, as well as esthetically attractive.
Factors to Consider in Choosing Your Roofing System
An architect surveys his plans like a commander overseeing a battle map. What are the strengths of the opponent? What are the weaknesses of the building? What is the best tactic to defeat the enemy? The roof is the main barrier between the interior of a building and its exterior, and the roof is under constant, daily attack from a formidable enemy. One of the most powerful enemies that a building faces is weather. There’s no escaping it: a roof has no force shield to keep the rain and snow from falling, the wind from blowing, the hail from bombarding, or the sun from beating down. But a roofing system must be able to withstand all of these powerful elements if it is to stand firm against deterioration. Many of us have noticed more and more episodes of extreme weather, as storms in both winter and summer seem to be more potent. These are the factors that remind us of how important it is to choose a roof that is built to last and to protect against weather at its worst.
A Roofing System’s Appearance
Danpal can provide the roofing system that you’re looking for, whether your design is modern or traditional. The design of a roofing system also matters, because it significantly affects the building’s ultimate appearance. The color, texture, and type of roofing all need to be in harmony with the overall style of the building, including its exterior look and finish. The design needs to blend together; clashing styles make the entire building appear to have been rushed to completion without forethought for how it would look when it was actually constructed.
Roofing and the Environment
As regulations become stricter, new rules are re-defining the kinds of roofing systems that can be used, particularly with regard to coatings, sealants, and adhesives. Recent decades have witnessed a dramatic evolution in the kinds of roofing materials available, thanks to technological advances. While traditional materials remain popular, newer materials such as polycarbonate are rapidly becoming the favorite because of their durability, flexibility, and their energy efficiency. As the environment has become more of a concern, the move to use environmentally friendly materials has rapidly gained momentum. At Danpal, we know that your roof is part of your building, and your building is part of the wider world. Keeping everything in balance is what makes a building a success.
