Choosing Your Commercial Roofing Materials

Small and large businesses always look for solid commercial roofing companies that provide professional services to will help protect and beautify their businesses. Experienced companies know how to finish this process without disrupting the ongoing business activities. They eliminate the debris fast and make sure that the job is done well.

It is good to know that there are several types of commercial roofing materials to select from. Your final choice will probably be affected by cost, weather in your location, and the slope of the roof, but it is always good to learn more about the common types of commercial roofing materials before you make your decision.

Commercial Metal Roofing Materials

Some of the materials used in this type of roofing include aluminum, steel, metal tie, standing seam, and copper. Of course, there are many other commercial roofing materials used in metal roofing. In case the installation process is finished professionally, the roofing should work without any problems for at least 35 years. That’s why this option is more expensive than most other options. Metal roofing materials are praised for their ability to resist any type of weather. Keep in mind that the price and properties of different metal roofing materials are not the same, so perform thorough research.

Commercial Asphalt Shingles

As the name suggests, this roofing material is based on asphalt. According to official statistics, most homes and commercial buildings use asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles usually include fiber glass of wood fiber combined with organic material. They can last for up to 30 years. If you want to make asphalt roofing material more attractive (and expensive at the same time), you should opt for laminated asphalt shingles. They can last up to 50 years.


Tile roofing is usually made of clay, but today many manufacturers use concrete or rubber roofing materials for this purpose. One of the things that make them attractive is the wide range of colors and patterns. Clay is a roofing material that is usually more expensive compared to concrete. They can last up to 60 years.

Wood Shakes

Wood is a natural roofing material that is becoming very popular these days. Wood roof shakes are usually made of cedar, spruce or pine. They usually have smooth and attractive finish after they are cured with the help of a special machine.

As you can see, modern technology has allowed manufacturers to use almost any kind of material for roofing and it is up to you to find the one that suits your project the best.
