Olneya Restoration Group is the premier roofing contractor in our area because of our excellent products, workmanship and customer service. You can rely on us for all of your commercial and residential roofing needs. Here are the key differences between the two:
Residential properties typically have roofs with steep slopes. This lets rainwater move down the roof and flow into the gutters. Commercial buildings, on the other hand, have a low-slope design because that is more efficient. While commercial roofs look flat, they actually have a slope that can effectively handle rain. When repairing or maintaining either building type, it’s important to take this difference into account.
Size is the most apparent difference between residential and commercial roofing systems. Commercial establishments are larger, so they have bigger roofs and a wider surface area on which to work. They are also taller. It’s important for a roofing contractor that works on both types of roofing systems to have a crew big enough to handle a commercial roofing endeavor. Luckily, we have a dedicated team that serves our commercial roofing clients.
Residential roofing systems have many practical material alternatives, including asphalt shingles, metal, wood, slate, shake and tile. Many homeowners choose their roof based on beauty, value and durability. On the other hand, commercial roofing materials include flat, TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) single-ply membranes, tile and metal. Commercial property owners tend to prioritize longevity, durability and thermal efficiency.
