There are several options available for commercial and industrial flat roofs
, but very few for sloped or pitched roofs. If you don’t want the hassle of shingle maintenance, commercial metal roofing might be the answer you’re looking for. Extremely durable, long-lasting, and energy efficient, metal roofing is a solid investment.
Because metal is considered a premium roofing material, it is more costly than asphalt shingle roofing. However, many see that the benefits outweigh the extra cost. On average, a metal roof can last 50+ years and requires little to no maintenance. If you plan on staying at your current address for many years to come, commercial metal roofing is an excellent choice. It is impervious to water and stands up against high winds, large hail, fire, UV damage, and more.
Perhaps the greatest advantages of a metal roof are its energy efficient and eco-friendly properties.
Metal is naturally reflective, which helps reduce the amount of heat absorbed by your roof. This equates to less energy use and lower cooling costs, especially in the hot Texas summer. It also provides a natural insulation barrier, which helps retain heat in the winter. Generally made of recycled materials, metal roofs reduce landfill waste because they last so long and can be recycled when replaced.
