Residential Roof Types Versus Commercial Roof Types
Residential roofing and commercial roofing are both very similar, yet very different at the same time. Both are identical in their function, which is to repel water and snow from the top of a building. Commercial and residential roofs are designed to be long-lasting and durable, thus allowing for many years to pass by before it is necessary for you to replace your roof.
Residential roofing is generally designed to be more decorative than commercial roofing, which is designed to be more functional. In most cases, commercial roofing isn’t even supposed to be seen. It’s hidden from the public view, as most commercial roofs are flat. It’s safe to say that commercial roofs aren’t designed to look pretty. Some of the more modern and innovative options are slightly more stylish and functional.
Phoenix Residential roofing comes in all different colors and shapes. Residential shingles can be red, blue, white, black, and virtually any other color. Many homeowners also choose to place wooden shingles on their homes, but asphalt is by far the most popular option. Residential roofing is one of the most common forms of roofing, and the one which the majority of people are most familiar with.
A Phoenix commercial rooftop is designed to offer protection to the building from the outside. They are often simply layers of asphalt on top of the building. It’s also common for companies or building owners to install “green roofs” which use living plants to cover the top of the buildings. Thermoplastic roofing is also another common type of roofing that is highly resistant to sun and element exposure. EPDM roofing is the most common, as it is relatively easy and inexpensive to install. It has been around for a long time, and will suit any business or building well.
No matter what type of roof you need, a professional Arizona roofing contractor is needed to install the roof for you. He or she can make sure that your roof is installed properly, and assure you that there will be no leaks or other issues with your roof. Your roofing contractor will also recommend the appropriate type of roofing or shingles for your building’s needs.
