Building your commercial property is no easy task. With so many different options, it can be overwhelming to choose the right build for your business’s needs. But while some construction choices can be difficult, choosing your roof shouldn’t be. That’s why we created this simple guide. If you are ready for a commercial roof installation, then read on to learn about our most common roofing types. You’ll find a material that’s perfect for your build.
When it comes to commercial roof installation materials, metal is perhaps the best. While these roofs tend to be the most expensive, they are long-lasting and low-maintenance. Metal roofs are made out of sheets of galvanized steel, aluminum, or copper. Metal roofs can be installed on their own, or placed on top of an existing shingle roof for additional support.
Composition Shingle Roofs-
Composition shingle roofs are the most affordable option, making them perfect for startups or other businesses on a budget. You can customize the weight, color, or design of your shingles because they are available in a variety of styles. Depending on the grade of shingle used, a composition shingle roof should last 20 to 50 years. While composition shingles are prone to weather damage, the shingles are usually easy to replace.
Tile roofs fall in between the first two categories. While they are more expensive than composition shingles, they tend to be more affordable than metal roofing. Tile roofs also hold up well in inclement weather. Tiles also come in a variety of shapes, colors, and styles, just like composition shingles. This makes it easy to customize the look of your business- and the amount of money you will spend on your roof.
