Commercial Upkeep: Choosing the Right Roofing System for your Business

Whether you are constructing a new building for your business or installing a new roof at an existing location, it is important to know all the roofing system options available. Before you start the process of choosing a roofing company to install your roof, you should first do your research and find out what type of roof would best suit the type of building you have. Then you will be able to narrow down the roofing companies that specialize in that type of roof system. The following overview will introduce you to four of the most popular commercial roofing systems.

Spray Polyurethane Foam

This roofing material is also referred to as SPF. The polyurethane coating is sprayed as a liquid that quickly turns into a thick foam, which eventually solidifies. The benefits of an SPF roof are that it is waterproof, has no seams, is durable, energy-efficient and is not as harmful to the environment as other roofing types.

Single-Ply Membrane

This very common roofing system is typically made of rubber sheets that are fastened or connected on top of a layer of insulation. Benefits include fire resistance, energy efficiency and reliability.

Metal Roofs

Metal roofs are usually made of galvanized steel, but aluminum can also be used. This roofing material is lightweight, so it is often installed on top of an existing roof. Benefits include a wide variety of styles and colors, durability and fire resistance.

Tar and Gravel Roofs

This roofing system has been used for over a century. Several layers of tar or asphalt are installed with support fabric in alternating layers, and then topped with gravel. This type of roof is low maintenance and can last for a few decades.

These are just a few of the commercial roofing systems available. Take some time to fully research before deciding for your commercial building.
