Commercial Roofing

Commercial Roofing Services

Saunders Roofing provides a full range of services for commercial applications for both steep and low slope roofs. We work with many general contractors and developers on both new construction and rehab projects. We have done a multitude of projects in the Scotts Addition and Manchester areas. We have worked on several projects for local government buildings and historical VCU buildings. We understand the need for communication with multiple contractors and owners to ensure that the roofing portion of the project coordinates with the designated timeline.

“We have worked with Saunders Roofing on many commercial projects in Richmond over the years. The owner, Jarrod Frakes, is both personable and professional. Saunders is easy to work with, knowledgeable about roofing and dependable. They do a great job.”

Past Projects

Saunders Roofing has worked with many homeowners, business owners and contractors in the Richmond and Surrounding Areas to produce some of the most architecturally challenging roofs in the area. Our projects include historical rehabs of many Monument Avenue and Fan Area homes, churches and museums as well as modern roofing installations of breweries and multi-use developments in Scotts Addition.

Scotts Addition – Flat TPO Roof

Saunders only uses GAF TPO roofing products. Short for thermoplastic polyolefin, TPO is a single-ply roofing membrane that offers excellent performance at a cost-effective price. Heat-welded seams provide superior strength. TPO’s long-term heat, UV, and natural fungal resistance, plus flexibility without need for plasticizers also make TPO a reliable low-slope roofing system.
