What type of roofing material is best for your commercial building? There are a number of roof types available, and each has its own benefits. Here are seven different roofing materials you can have installed.
Metal roofing is durable, long-lasting, and able to withstand extreme weather conditions, including hail and heavy winds. Metal is fire resistant, and it also protects your building from the sun, keeping it cool. One of the top benefits of metal roofing is how little maintenance it needs.
Slate can be a bit more expensive than other materials, but it looks amazing. Like metal, it is durable, can withstand extreme weather conditions, and will last a long time. It has been used for hundreds of years.
Concrete is extremely strong. As such, it can withstand heavy winds. It’s a very affordable option, and it can last decades. However, it is not waterproof, so your roof will need additional sealant to protect your building.
Clay roofs provide excellent insulation. They don’t rot, so you will be protected from insect infestation. They are also fire retardant and have extremely long lifespans. Clay roofs can give your building a more classic look.
Wooden Shingle Roofing
