Learn about common commercial roofing materials and determine which one is right for you.
Because commercial buildings are often constructed in a different fashion than residential ones, the roofing materials vary, too. Commercial roofs are often flat, which requires the use of special roofing materials. Because of this, many businesses choose to have their roofs fitted with PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or TPO (thermoplastic polyolefins).
Learn more about these roofing materials and discover which is right for your business by reading below.
PVC: PVC roofing is a thick, flexible, ultraviolet-resistant plastic material. Some PVC roofs also make use of fiberglass resins and other materials for added durability. Because of this, it’s generally a long-term roofing solution for your business.
TPO: TPO is an extremely durable roofing material that comes in numerous thicknesses. Like PVC, it can last for a long time, making it an ideal option for many businesses.
Commercial Roofing Costs
As with anything else in your business, cost is going to be a large factor in determining how you will replace your roof. Roofing costs are generally priced by the square foot, so a larger building means a more expensive roof. Higher quality materials tend to have a higher price upfront, though this price may actually work out to be cheaper in the long run. If an older roof has to be torn off, this can also increase the price by about $50-$150 per square foot.
