Composition Shingle Roofs
These are made with organic material and have a life expectancy of 25 to 50 years depending on the grade of the materials used. This option will provide the easiest, fastest and least costly option for the building owner and may be installed over an existing deck if possible. Shingles come in many styles, colors and designs.
These are a bit pricier but provide a longer life span and are more durable to the weather condition because of their make, tile can be made of concrete cement, clay or slate. Tile roofs should last a minimum of 50 years or longer. Tiles are very heavy per square foot, so the existing state of your commercial building should be taking in to consideration and inspected before considering this option. Just like composition shingles, tile roofs come in many colors and styles which means you have plenty of choices. The right tile roof could add years of good protection and give your commercial business a superior look.
This type of roof will be the priciest but it will be worth it. Metal roofs are sheets of formed steel the can be made of copper, aluminum or galvanized steel, and may be place over an existing shingle roof if necessary.
