You might believe that roofs are no different from each other, whether they’re residential or commercial. That’s not true! There are many differences between commercial and residential roofing. This is why it is essential to hire a roofing company that specializes in the type of roof that you need.
Some of the main differences between commercial and residential roofing are the size and shape of roofs. For residential roofing, typically there is a sloped or peaked roof, whereas commercial roofing is typically not flat or has a very minor slope. Commercial roofing is also typically a much larger job than residential roofing because commercial buildings are often larger than the average home.
These two types of roofing also often require different types of roofing material. For residential roofing, asphalt shingles are typically the most commonly used roofing material. When it comes to commercial roofing, single-ply roofing is usually used. This is when sheets of roofing material are installed over a large surface area.
Commercial roofing also has additional components that residential roofs do not include, such as air flow systems and piping.
Because of all of these differences, not only is installation a completely different process, but these two types of roofing also have different maintenance and repair needs. This is why it is so important to hire a company that specializes in the type of roofing that you need.
