Some people are even discouraged to not get a flat roof for their house due to misinformation. While these challenges exist, we must assert that the key is to use the right materials, procedures, and methods for building a flat roof, or any kind of roof for that matter.
Properly installed, a metal roof should last as long as the building, sealing out water, surviving high winds, and easily shedding snow. Metal is resistant to fire, mildew, insects, and rot. Warranties vary widely, but most companies back their products for 20 to 50 years. Paint finishes typically have a 30-year limited warranty.
Composite roof shingles, also known as synthetic shingles, consist of a mixture of materials chosen specifically for their durability, reduced weight, resistance to damage, and improved insulating abilities. Fiberglass, asphalt, plastic, polyester, and recycled paper products are often part of the blend, with resin or laminates holding the various materials together.
Composite shingles can also be formed to replicate a range of styles, such as tab shingles, tile, shake, or stone products. Composite shingles are available in a range of colors and don’t crack, warp, split, or peel, making them a practical and appealing choice.
Through the years, there have been many roofing materials used for commercial buildings. Although there are newer materials on the market today, many contractors and business owners still prefer built-up roofing (BUR).
Many contractors and business owners have been using BURs because of their proven reliability. Built-up roofs installed 40 years ago still stand strong today. Here are other benefits of using BUR for your businesses:
