Are you building your business or remodeling it and want a new roof? One of the most important decisions is the type of commercial roofing you choose. There are pros and cons to think about with each roofing type. From architecturally friendly roofs to structurally sound ones, here are the most popular commercial roofs and the things to think about when choosing one for new construction.

Flat Roofs

For industrial-style buildings, flat roofs offer a lot of great benefits. Flat roofs consist of timbers and joists that connect to the walls of the building, which fortifies the frame. Not only is this type of commercial roofing among the most popular building choices, but you have access to materials like metal, steel, PVC, TPO, and modified bitumen, which is both affordable and functional options.

Another benefit of choosing a flat roof is its construction and material usage. Not only does it require less building materials to construct, but they can be installed much faster than sloped rooftops. This type of construction project also provides several options for commercial properties as the flat surface can house equipment or allow you to build environmentally friendly surface areas on them.

Low-Sloped Roofs

For some types of commercial roofing needs, a low-sloped roof is most compatible with landscapes and weather patterns. While this roof is similar to the construction pattern of flat rooftops, the low-sloped rooftop is designed to prevent rain, snow, or ice from pooling or creating ice dams. This is a smart investment that will hinder weather-related damage, including water damage and mold.

Installations of low-sloped roofs also take minimal time, so if you are looking for the least time-consuming option, this option is as simple to install as the flat surfaces. They also do not require much maintenance, so you can schedule a once-yearly inspection with us to ensure everything is working as it should. It will not only help you maintain the roof, but it will cut down on normal hourly pay.

Pitched Roofs

While some business owners relate pitched roofs with residential roofing, it’s a common selection for commercial properties as well because it has the right incline to support over-worked water drainage systems.  It’s also an affordable and attractive option because buildings tend to be smaller square footage and architecturally-friendly. The materials are also less costly than larger facilities.

With light maintenance and inspections, a pitched roof will also support your business for decades. With its light maintenance needs, pricing, and life cycle expectancy, a small business owner who is either building or remodeling will love this type of commercial roofing type.  Inspections and upkeep are also affordable and friendly choices, so you won’t have to worry about eating away at profit.
