The most significant difference between commercial and residential roofing is the slope of the roof which is often determined by the size of the building. Residential homes are typically smaller and have a steep slope roof that is visible from the ground. Asphalt shingles, slate and wood shake are primarily used for residential properties. With the tremendously larger size of commercial buildings, commercial roofs tend to have flat or only slightly sloped roofs and are not visible from the ground. Commercial roofing materials come in a wide range of materials which are designed to stand up to extreme heat, intense cold, etc. Commercial roofs can look different depending upon where you reside. When choosing roofing materials, a significant consideration is what is available in your region. If you are a building owner, you will want to keep some of these things in mind when looking at how to extend the life of your commercial roofing system
Of all things commercial, the most important to keep in mind-maintenance is essential!
