Is your commercial building in need of a new roof? There are a number of options, but shingle roofing is by far the most common. Asphalt shingles are available in three styles:
- Basic Commercial Shingle Roofing: a three-tab, single layer design
- Mid-Range Commercial Shingle Roofing: architectural or laminated shingles (the most popular choice)
- Luxury Commercial Shingle Roofing: heavyweight designer shingles
Asphalt shingles offer many benefits for commercial buildings:
- Wide assortment of styles, colors, sizes and thicknesses
- Resistant to algae and fungus
- Durable and long-lasting
- Fire ratings to meet your specific building code
- Resistant to extreme weather, such as wind and hail
Keep in mind that both the mid-range and luxury shingle roofing is not ideal for commercial buildings with a flat or low-slope roof.
Why do the majority of businesses have a flat roof? A few core reasons:
- They are less expensive to build and maintain
- A/C units and other necessities can be placed on a flat roof, saving space on the ground for additional parking
- Provide the ability to make changes to the interior without the high cost of changing the exterior structure with each update
- Most businesses don’t require attic space, so heating/cooling this area is an unnecessary added cost
Non-traditional businesses might desire a more modern look that a flat roof can provide. For these businesses that are trying to create a nostalgic or domestic aesthetic, a roofline with a steeper pitch can work well.
In addition to shingle roofing, we are also experts in many other types of commercial roofing, as well as residential roofing.
