Although this is not the general rule, commercial buildings usually have flat roofing systems. There are many types of materials that go well on commercial structures, including PVC, EPDM, and TPO, modified bitumen or metal.
Metal is recommended for commercial roofs with more than 2 inches’ slope. Installing a metal roof certainly involves special training and experience and is best installed by Denver commercial roofing contractors, but it can have a lot of great benefits. For instance, a properly installed and maintained metal roof can last for more than 30 years. But the longevity of this type of roof cannot entirely prevent leaks, so taking good care of your metal roof is essential.
Metal roofing systems have a natural resistance to fire, punctures and hail. Moreover, metals are more energy-efficient than other roofing materials. If the installation methods and the style allow it, a ventilated space can be included under the panels.
Some argue that installing a metal roof costs more in the case of other types of materials which are typically used for commercial buildings. But it may prove to be a great investment. At the same time, metal roofs require little to no maintenance, which is another great plus of this amazing option for commercial and residential roofs alike.
