Choosing the right type of roof for your business is important for the health and longevity of your commercial building, not to mention for the safety of the workers who will be under it. In order to make an informed choice, explore the benefits of these 5 types of commercial roofs and make a smarter decision for your business.

3 Types of Commercial Roofs (And Why We Love Them)

Built-Up Roofing

Built-up roofing refers to a roof made from layers of tar and gravel. When they are put in place correctly and given the right maintenance, they can last up to 40 years.

Why we love them: They are seamless and waterproof due to their solid construction, meaning you avoid leaks. They protect very well from UV rays. And they are low-maintenance, requiring very little care once they’re installed.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs are very common and have been used for many years. Most are made from steel, though some use aluminum or tin as well.

Why we love them: They offer a variety of designs and colors, making them more aesthetically interesting and pleasing. They hold up well in problematic weather and withstand snow and wind well. They are also very fire-resistant.

Shingle Roofing

Although shingle roofs are mostly found on homes and residential roofing, they can also be used for commercial roofs that are sloped.

Why we love them: Like metal roofs, they also offer a variety of design choices. They are extremely durable, especially against hail. They’re also easy to repair, since damages are both easy to find and easy to fix.
