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.

Unlike residential roofs, which use a pitch to direct water and debris, most commercial roofs use a flat roof system. The flat roof effectively protects a commercial building using a completely different approach to roofing, but it boasts several surprising advantages over residential roofs. A commercial roof is much easier to access for regular maintenance and repairs. It’s also much less costly to repair or replace than its residential roof counterparts as labor is much simpler and materials are more affordable.

We’ve already been hit with a couple of polar blasts this year in Minnesota, and according to the Farmer’s Almanac, we’re only just getting started. If you own or run a business with a commercial flat roof, one of the most important things you can do is stay on top of your roof when extreme weather hits. If your roof has even minor damage, winter extremes can push it to the point of no return. That’s because the flat quality of commercial roofs can open it up to damage faster than pitched roofs.

Modern roofing systems have come a long way over the last century or so. For many years, the most prominent roofing system used for commercial buildings was the BUR or built-up roofing system. Sometimes known as tar and gravel roofs, these systems became popular as the many applications of crude oil came into widespread usage. But these roofing options have gradually been replaced over the years with far more sophisticated flat roof solutions.
