Just as residential roofs, commercial roofs have the function to protect a building from weather. However, besides this function, there are significant differences between the two types of roofs.
Commercial roofs are typically flat, or very slightly sloped, because this design matches their size and architecture and can also withstand foot traffic.
The most popular types of commercial roofing include:
Single Ply Roofing
Such a roof is covered with flexible and robust membranes (PVC, EPDM or TPO) , which resist cracking and peeling, regardless the temperature and sun exposure. They are single-layer membranes, easy to apply by professional roofers, using different methods.
The most popular colors of these membranes are white, grey and tan and create a visually appealing aspect. Some of these membranes are also recyclable.
When it comes to the price, single-ply roofing is one of the most affordable options and will provide great value for your money.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
These roofs are made from asphalt combined with a chemical polymer that ensures temperature resistance as well as great flexibility. This material is applied in multiple layers and can be installed regardless the season. It has high ratings for wind, hail and fire resistance.
According to trusted metal roofing Dallas contractors, metal roofing is currently one of the best options for residential and commercial projects. Such a roof is very durable, resistant in any climate, reflective and recyclable.
