The different types of roofing for a commercial building
Different types of roofing can be used to enhance a commercial, residential, institutional or industrial building. We can advise you on which one is best for your building.
Sheet metal roofing
Also known as a corrugated roof, this structure is made of steel or zinc and is used in many commercial buildings. It is mostly found on buildings with a sloped or rounded roof. It is appreciated for its good looks and reasonable price.
This type of structure is characterized by its strength and impermeability. It withstands harsh weather conditions, including high winds. Note that working safely on top of the roof is possible because of its ability to support a significant load.
Investing in an asphalt shingle roof has many benefits. Its interest is surely due to its composition:
- Granules: these are small surface particles whose role is to protect the roof from ultraviolet rays;
- Asphalt: this material is the source of the structure’s impermeability and explains its weight;
- Adhesive and nailing strips: these elements hold the shingles together;
- A reinforcing material: its role is to join all the components of the shingled roof. Also, it reveals the quality level of the shingle.
The interest of a flat roof lies in its modern appearance, an interesting feature for commercial buildings in urban areas. It should be noted that this type of cover is not really flat. Indeed, it has a slight slope of 1% to 5%. This minimum slope allows it to evacuate rainwater.
A flat roof is best if you plan to include an accessible space such as a deck or other facility. This area enjoys pleasant thermal conditions. Just be sure to use a quality insulation system to ensure user comfort.
Elastomeric membrane roofing
This roof has two main layers, including a base and a finish. The finish gives the structure its look and color. This structure is appreciated because of its resistance and its ease of maintenance. It is an interesting alternative if you are looking for a solid and durable roof. The only drawback is its high price.

What are the main steps of a commercial re-roofing?
Step 1: Inspection
We systematically carry out an inspection before proceeding with any repair work. This step is essential to identify anomalies and their origins.
An inspection facilitates the identification of the appropriate type of intervention and the implementation of strategies. Knowing that we always operate with the safety of tenants, passers-by and property in mind.
Note that the control can be done directly or indirectly. In the first case, our roofers make an inventory directly on the roof. In the second case, they use specific equipment to perform the same work, but without having to climb on the roof.
Step 2: The refurbishment
Rehabilitation can begin once the diagnosis has been made through inspection. The operation to be undertaken varies according to the anomaly observed. Our technicians define the equipment adapted to the situation, trying to guarantee the safety of all.
During a roofing project, the roofer performs various tasks, including the following:
- Waterproofing of structures or caulking;
- Roofing installation, repair, or renovation;
- Repair of damaged parts of the structure;
- Setting up scaffolding to protect the roofers;
- Creation of a ventilation and insulation system at the attic level.

Should I re-roof my commercial roof?
A damaged commercial roof will cause problems not only for the buildings, but also for the tenants. The latter see their comfort reduced. They may even get sick from water infiltration.
The air conditioning system becomes less efficient if the roof is damaged. It is then more complicated to heat the rooms in winter and to cool them in summer. The same problem can affect the attic ventilation which can no longer perform its role properly.
Redoing the damaged roof of your commercial building can avoid all these inconveniences.
