There’s a wide range of commercial roofing materials available today. Each material comes with a different lifespan, installation process, cost, maintenance needs, strengths, and weaknesses. If you need a new roof or have just started managing a building with a new-to-you roof, becoming familiar with the different commercial roofing materials will help you in future decision-making process.
Your roof is designed to protect your property, the occupants, and everything inside from rainwater to wind. So, it’s essential to keep water from ponding on your flat roof. When left to sit for long, ponding water can trigger various problems, such as plant growth, roof leaks, and further damage to your building’s structure. Consult a reputable commercial roofing contractor to establish an appropriate flat roof drainage system to help avoid this.
