The Difference Between Commercial Roofing and Residential Roofing

Categories: Commercial Roofing

The Difference Between Commercial Roofing and Residential RoofingWhen you are looking for an experienced roofer, you may notice a trend that many companies complete both residential and commercial roofing projects. There are some roofers that only specialize in one or the other. It is all roofing, right? Well, yes but there are some differences between commercial roofing and residential roofing that should be noted. If you have specific roofing questions, contact our office today at Peak Roofing & Construction.

Type of Roofing Materials

The types of roofing materials some commercial buildings use are much different than you would choose for a residential property. While some smaller commercial building may use asphalt shingles or standing seam metal roofs, larger buildings are more apt to use tile roofing, metal roofing, TPO, or PVC roofing. You need a roofer who has experience in installing these commercial roofing materials. Peak Roofing & Construction has a team of expert commercial roofers that quickly and easily install all commercial roofing systems.

Roofing Design

While many residential roofs are sloped, commercial buildings may be low sloped or flat. Flattop roofs have their own issues with water damage and repair and need a roofer who is familiar with these unique issues. Commercial roofs are also on the whole larger in size and require special and more frequent attention to keep in optimal shape.

Increased Cost

Due to the size and roofing material costs, commercial roofing is typically more expensive when compared to traditional residential roofing projects. Roofing costs can very considerably due to the particular material or complexity of the commercial roof. If you have questions about how much a commercial roofing system may cost, contact Peak Roofing & Construction for a roofing estimate.
