Considering the mere span of your building’s roof, it’s no secret that it takes quite the beating, on a year-round basis. Hail, wind, rain, and harmful UV rays unfortunately diminish the quality and integrity of your commercial roofing system, causing risk to both the building and the assets within. Unfortunately, commercial roofing projects present the average local roofers with a series of logistical challenges. Therefore, not every local roofing company in Northern Colorado can be relied upon for commercial roofing services. Fortunately, we’ve got the skills, expertise and insight needed to effectively address those challenges.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMMERCIAL ROOFING AND RESIDENTIAL ROOFING
As briefly mentioned above, there is a considerable difference between commercial roofing and residential roofing.
Because of the steeper slopes of residential roofing, there are many different types of roofing materials available, such as asphalt shingles, metal roofs, slate, tile, wood shakes, and so many more. Commercial roofs, on the other hand, tend to be taller and flatter, which requires stronger roofing materials, as well as lighter roofing materials. Thus, metal roofs and ethylene propylene are common commercial roofing materials used. Flat roofs are also energy efficient because of their reflective properties.
Residential roofing materials are much easier to install than commercial roofing materials. Commercial rooftops tend to have more ventilation systems, piping, smoke stacks, HVAC systems, communication systems, and more installed on top, meaning you have to take care in accommodating them. Furthermore, due to the size of a commercial building, they can take much longer to install, from a month or more. Some commercial roofing materials may have to cure as well for a few days before moving on to the next phase of roofing installation.
The maintenance of commercial roofs tends to be more due to the fact that they are flatter sloped. They need to be inspected regularly for damage. Consider the damage heavy snow can do to a flat roof when it just sits there for months, accumulating. Repairing commercial roofs use different solutions as well. On the flip side, you can stand on commercial roofs, making them easier to inspect and maintain.
