Choosing a roofing material for a small commercial property can be quite challenging. Unlike a residential roof installation project, selecting one must be based on appearance, costs and its long-term effect on the business operations.
Tedrick’s Roofing, home of the best local roof repair pros, share the top roofing materials we have been successfully installing on commercial properties.
1. Built-Up Roofing (BUR)
Also known as BUR, it remains one of the most popular commercial roofing options despite the presence of roof membranes. It is made up of multiple layers of bitumen or asphalt and insulation. While it takes a long time to install and costs a bit more, its layered structure gives the top of a commercial property a durable and easy-to-maintain roof.
2. Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO)
Known by its abbreviation TPO, it is a form of single-ply membrane roofing that displays exceptional solar reflectance and strong ultraviolet (UV) and chemical damage. With these qualities present, the property’s interior remains cozy, driving utility bills down. It is available in different thicknesses and widths, which works for buildings of any size.
Another popular roofing material, metal roofs provide color and drama to small commercial structures while providing long-lasting protection and unmatched strength. Various metal roofs are easy to install given the material’s low weight. Modern advances in manufacturing make it possible for these roofing materials to be rustproof.
At Tedrick’s Roofing, we know that not all roofs are alike, and that is why our roofing systems are cautiously matched to fit other factors, such as the cost, environment, nature of use and the overall design of the building. When you work with our certified roofer, you can be sure the roof stands the test of time, elements and even human traffic.
