What Is the Best Material for A Commercial Roof?

What type of roofing material is best for your commercial building? There are a number of roof types available, and each has its own benefits. Here are seven different roofing materials you can have installed.

Single Ply TPO (Thermoplastic PolyOlefin)

TPO is a single-ply, highly reflective roofing membrane made of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber with a polyester-reinforced fabric middle (scrim). It can be fully adhered or mechanically attached over your existing roofing system or insulation and installed as a complete re-roof. Either way, the brilliant white membrane will start saving on your energy and maintenance costs right away.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is durable, long-lasting, and able to withstand extreme weather conditions, including hail and heavy winds. Metal is fire resistant, and it also protects your building from the sun, keeping it cool. One of the top benefits of metal roofing is how little maintenance it needs.

Slate Roofing

Slate can be a bit more expensive than other materials, but it looks amazing. Like metal, it is durable, can withstand extreme weather conditions, and will last a long time. It has been used for hundreds of years.

Concrete Roofing

Concrete is extremely strong. As such, it can withstand heavy winds. It’s a very affordable option, and it can last decades. However, it is not waterproof, so your roof will need additional sealant to protect your building.

Clay Roofing

Clay roofs provide excellent insulation. They don’t rot, so you will be protected from insect infestation. They are also fire retardant and have extremely long lifespans. Clay roofs can give your building a more classic look.

Wooden Shingle Roofing

There are various styles and levels of perfection available with wooden roofing. Wooden shingle roofing can be fire-treated to make it resistant to fire and heavy elements.

Asphalt Roofing

There are various types of composition roofing available, including asphalt and 3-tab shingles. You can achieve the look of a classic wooden roof at a much lower cost. Composition roofing is usually durable and fire-resistant.

Synthetic Roofing

There are now many synthetic materials that are cheap, durable, long-lasting, fire-resistant, and require little maintenance but look amazing. You can use these synthetic materials to create an exotic looking roof that is a piece of art.
