Although most property owners are familiar with asphalt shingles, there are actually many different types of roofing materials used in the industry. Some are designed for commercial use, which is why they aren’t as well-known among homeowners. But if you’re responsible for a commercial building, it’s helpful to understand what types of materials might work best for it.
The process of commercial construction differs from residential, as commercial buildings have vastly different uses. Some commercial buildings have HVAC equipment mounted on their roofs, which is heavy and can cause damage to certain roofing materials. A flat roof is often an option in a commercial building, but it’s generally not a good option for a residential structure.
The differences in roofing design also lend themselves to different types of roofing materials. One that’s often used in commercial construction is ethylene propylene diene terpolymer, or EPDM roofing. It derives from natural gas and oil and often gets installed on buildings with low slopes.
This material is available in a variety of widths, as well as two thickness options, to complement any structure. Property owners can also choose from black or white materials, each of which has its own benefits. The lighter color is ideal in the summer months, as it doesn’t absorb the harsh UV rays from the sun. When it turns chilly outside, the dark color helps to maintain a warmer indoor atmosphere while keeping energy costs down.
