A commercial roofer will tell you that the choice of material used for buildings is very important. Your roof protects the entire building from sun, rain, wind, and snow.
Difference between a commercial and residential roofer
Commercial roofing may have a different shape from residential roofing. This can be attributed to the difference in size. While a residential structure is usually smaller, commercial structures are usually, bigger. Residential structures usually have steep, sloping roofs. The roof is done that way to add height and volume to the building. The raised roof also better protects the structure of the residential structure.
Commercial roofing, on the other hand, is usually flat or slightly sloping. This is because of the architectural structure of such buildings. High, sloping roofing will usually just make the structure more enormous.
Residential roofing is sometimes easier to install. Commercial roofs require construction companies that are skilled with building around smoke stacks, air flow systems, and external piping. A commercial roof will have a low slope or tend to be completely flat and larger than a typical residential roof. It usually requires more maintenance and repairs of larger spaces that are constructed in sections. Commercial Roofing also conserves energy by reducing consumption.
Some roofing equipment used for commercial roofs is Asphalt, Slate, Tile, and Ceramic Shingles, Wood Shakes, Metal roofing, Solar Shingles, Built-Up Roof, etc. Commercial roofs may also be constructed using shingles. Shingles are overlapping sections of material laid in rows to help improve runoff. They can be made from many a material, including wood, slate, clay, or asphalt.
Pre-finished steel is one of the materials used in manufacturing commercial roofs. It is weatherproof and has a warranty period of 30 years. If the roof is properly built and maintained, it will influence the likelihood of longevity of the roof, whether the roofing is for commercial or residential purposes.
Some other advantages of Commercial Roofing include easier occupancy, lower temperatures within the building, a lower load of cooling on the HVAC systems.
