Roofing a commercial building is an expensive investment. It requires careful consideration when selecting suitable materials for your facility. This video shows the best type of materials used for commercial roofing.
The primary purpose of both commercial and residential roof systems is weather protection, but that’s about all they have in common.
A commercial roof’s slope, determined by the building size, is the primary distinction between a commercial roof and a residential roof. Residential buildings are typically smaller than their counterparts, so their roofs have a steeper slope and are more readily observable. The material used for a commercial roof depends on the building’s design besides environmental factors such as the expected amount of foot traffic and temperature range.
If you need a new roof for your business building, choose a roofing company that stays up-to-date on the latest developments in the industry and can advise you on the best option for your roof. New commercial roof technologies have emerged that resist extreme temperatures, reduce stormwater runoff, and maximize environmental efficiency. For example, unlike metal roofs, shingle roofs, and PVC roofs, green roofs can eliminate the need for costly and complicated drainage systems by acting as natural insulation.
