All Shingles Are NOT the Same

While most roofing options last for decades, eventually, you will need to replace the roof on your commercial building. With so many options out there, it can be tough trying to decide what your best option is! Shingles are a very popular roofing material, but even shingles come in many different materials and styles. Interested in learning which shingle will work best for your roofing system? Here is some information you'll want to keep in mind!  

Asphalt Shingles: Easily the most common type of shingle, asphalt shingles are a classic look that offer the most affordability. Additionally, asphalt shingles are easily installed and, when properly cared for, have a lifespan of about 20 to 30 years. If budget is a concern of yours, asphalt shingles may be the best option for you.  

Wood Shingles: If there's a little more wiggle room in your budget, you may consider investing in a roofing system with wood shingles. Wood shingles are considered more stylish than asphalt shingles, as they age naturally and different types of wood can exude a different look and feel. If style is something that is important to you, wood shingles are likely the best way to go! Additionally, wood shingles can last from 30 to 50 years.  

Metal Shingles: Metal shingles are an increasingly popular choice for commercial buildings, as they work well with flat and low angled roofs. The materials can be very cheap, though at times tricky to install so you'll want to make sure to hire a reputable roofing professional if you decide on this system. When properly maintained, metal roofs can last about 50 years, making them an incredibly durable option. When properly installed and well maintained, any roofing material that you decide on will last your commercial building for years. Whether it is durability or style you seek, taking your time to find the proper roofing system for your commercial building is an important step in replacing your roof.
