Commercial roofs and residential roofing systems are fundamentally different in their structure and composition. Most commercial roofs require coverage over a large facility with commercial heating and cooling systems, which means these buildings require flat roof construction. To the untrained observer, a flat roof system would naturally require a simpler engineering design than its residential roofing counterparts. While a commercial roofing system may seem simple, but it’s far more complex than you might suspect at first glance.

Commercial flat roof membranes are known for their reliability and durability. However, if you suspect there could be a problem with your roof, it’s not something you want to take a chance on. Postponing your roof’s repairs can lead to serious damage inside your facilities and pose a risk to the building’s occupants. On the other hand, completely replacing a roof may seem like a drastic measure when you have a busy facility to run.

Not all roofs are created equal, and this is especially true when comparing commercial flat roofs to the type of sloped or pitched roofs found in residential roofing. Flat roofs are the most common roofs found in industrial and commercial buildings. Even if you know everything there is to know about how a sloped residential roof works, a flat roof is fundamentally different and has completely different needs. Rather than asphalt shingles, flat roofs typically use either tar and gravel or protective membranes to prevent water and air infiltration.
