sabal construction Choose Appropriate Commercial Roofing And Make Your Properties Weather-proof
Back To Blogs List

Every premise requires roofing, whether it is commercial or residential. The apparent difference between the two premises is their structure. Commercial properties such as warehouses, shops, restaurants, factories, or complexes have low or flat roofs. Commercial roofs are more extensive, and their surface is cut to place the openings for blower outlets, industrial pipes, smokestacks, and skylights. The material used in roofing depends on the roof design, cost, and weather conditions. Commercial roofing contractors can suggest the correct type of material.


The material of commercial roofing differs from residential building, as commercial roofing involves multiple layers of insulation, decking, protective coating, and reflective coating, depending on the type of roofing material. The coverings include modified bitumen, tar, gravel, sprayed polyurethane foam, or single-ply coverings. Due to the complexity involved and availability of several options in commercial roofing, a qualified and experienced commercial roofing contractor is the right person to recommend the appropriate roofing material.


Commercial Roofing Material 


Metal Panel Roofs: Metal roofs made from stainless steel or aluminum have a 45-50 years lifespan, and the space owners can use them for flat and sloped roofing. They have special sealant on the edge of each seam, ensuring leakage prevention and property insulation. 


Modified Bitumen Roofs: The roof is made of asphalt, polymerized rubber or plastic, and fiberglass and lasts 40 years. It is available in various thicknesses, needs less maintenance and repairs, and ensures airtight insulation and UV protection. The roof companies Cape Coral offer one-ply and two-ply modified bitumen roofs.


BUR/Tar & Gravel Roofs - BUR stands for Built-up-roofing made from tar and gravel. It is expensive but lasts more than 50 years. The multiple layers (5 to 20) of sandwiched tar make it strong and assure weather protection, excellent insulation, and leakage-proof premises. The commercial roofing contractors may suggest roofing with different numbers of layers depending on the weather conditions. 


Asphalt Roofs: The property owners may use asphalt gravel roofs besides tar. Asphalt roofs have an average life span of 10 years if used in high traffic conditions. However, it is the most affordable and durable solution for hotel and industrial properties, and its installation cost is higher in built-up roof systems.


TPO Roof Membranes: TPO stands for Thermoplastic Olefin, an affordable flat roof blocking UV rays. It is easy to install and lasts for 30-50 years. 


Some roof materials are expensive but long-lasting and need less maintenance and repairs. So, they end up being the most cost-effective roofing option. Therefore, the property owners must consider all the aspects besides cost in selecting the roofing system.
