What Are the Different Types of Commercial Roofs?

While the majority of residential roofs are constructed of asphalt shingles for aesthetic and economic reasons, commercial roofs can be made from a wide array of materials.

In addition to asphalt shingles, some of the other popular styles of commercial roofing include:

  • PVC – A flexible roof membrane that offers excellent durability
  • TPO – This single-ply membrane is often constructed of rubber
  • Modified bitumen – A type of asphalt product
  • EPDM – A durable, synthetic rubber membrane
  • Built-up – Commonly referred to as “tar and gravel” roofing

Another popular option is metal roofing. Companies such as GulfCoast Supply & Manufacturing offer a variety of metal roofing products that may be more expensive than other types of commercial roofing but can provide many years of worry-free protection. Some popular styles of metal roofing include:

  • Standing seam
  • Exposed fastener
  • Stamped metal

Commercial Roof Repair

Many commercial structures have flat roofs, which are more economical than pitched roofs but present drainage and maintenance problems. Regular maintenance is needed to keep commercial roofs in optimal condition, especially in an area like Tampa, Florida, where heat, heavy rains, and tropical weather systems can speed the deterioration process. Elite Roofing Services offers regular maintenance programs for businesses that want to keep their commercial roof repair expenses to a minimum. We will visit either monthly, quarterly, or yearly – depending on the condition of your roof – to inspect for issues that could turn into a costly repair or replacement project if left unchecked.

If you would like additional information about the commercial roof repair and maintenance services we offer to companies throughout the Tampa, FL, area, contact Elite Roofing Services today.

“I wouldn't hesitate to recomend Elite Roofing to anyone. They have provided excellent service on every roof we have had them do. My roof is a magnet for falling trees and limbs and we have had to require their services in addition to the new roof we had put on 10 years ago. They have always lived up to the timeline for completing the job and lived up to my expectations. Keep up the great work!”

“This was our first time having our roof replaced. Elite Roofing made the whole process easy and smooth. Very communicative and professional. Crew showed up right on time and worked very efficiently. Our roof was completed in less than a day and a half. They left our property clean and spotless after the job was completed. Our roof looks great! Would highly recommend Elite Roofing!”
