For a long time, residential and commercial roof construction were completely separate industries. Years ago, it would have been strange to install a flat roof on a house due to the prevailing aesthetics at the time. Thanks to recent advances in technology, however, so-called “universal” roofing systems can now be installed on both commercial and residential properties.
In this post, Lifetime Roofing Utah discusses three of these universal roofing systems.
Metal roofing, for a long time, was widely considered an industrial roof restricted to commercial properties. These days, metal roofs are among the most popular roofing options, even rivaling asphalt shingles. This is all thanks to their superior durability and elemental resilience as well as a longer service life, which ranges from 45 to 50 years.
Flat roofing is another commercial choice seeing a rise in popularity in the residential sector, specifically as the preferred roofing choice for contemporary and ultra-modern homes. As your trusted residential and commercial roofing contractor, we offer a range of roofing membranes and built-up systems that will provide your home with ample protection from the elements.
Slate roofing is a premium residential roofing option slowly entering the commercial sector. It’s a popular choice for businesses that want a “homey” aesthetic, such as restaurants and locally owned shops. As a premium roofing material, slate rivals both metal and tile in terms of longevity and upkeep.
As a GAF Master Elite® roofing contractor, we can offer you GAF’s TruSlate®, an affordable option in slate roofing at a fraction of the cost. Made with real slate, it features additional weatherproofing, making it a good year-round choice for residential and commercial properties.
