Commercial and residential roofing is similar in terms of the quality both require, including necessary materials and equipment. Commercial roofing projects, however, are often larger than residential projects and require more workers and materials, and sometimes need larger equipment to do the job.

5 Types Of Commercial Roofing
When we meet with future clients, they are usually comparing several types of roofing systems. We are always asked: What are the most popular types of commercial roofing? Which is better? Which is more reasonably priced? In this article, we will cover 5 types of commercial roofing.
At our company, we have been helping customers for decades choose the right roof for their building and their budget. We want everyone to feel empowered when they start getting quotes from their contractors.
In this article, we break down the five most common types of commercial roofing along with their average costs and advantages.
Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is an eco-friendly roofing option for commercial, industrial, and manufacturing facilities. Spray Polyurethane Foam, more commonly referred to as SPF, is a material that is sprayed as a liquid so it can expand into a foam, creating a solid layer across an existing roof.
Single-Ply Membrane Roofing
Single-Ply Membrane is a time-tested roofing option for commercial, industrial and manufacturing facilities. Single-Ply Membranes are sheets of rubber and other synthetics that can be ballasted, mechanically fastened or chemically adhered to insulation creating a layer of protection on your commercial facility.
Metal Roofing is one of the oldest commercial roofing systems on the market. Most metal roofing systems use corrugated galvanized steel, although other materials such as aluminum or tin can also be used. Since metal roofing material is rather light in weight, it can be installed right on top of the existing roof.
Shingle roofing is mostly known for homes and residential roofing, but shingles are very often used for steep-slope commercial roofing applications. Shingles can be made out of a few different materials, including wood, slate, metal, plastic, ceramic, and composite material such as asphalt. There are two main types of shingles: Asphalt and Architectural.
Built-Up Roofing Systems have been in use in the U.S. for over 100 years. These roof systems are commonly referred to as “tar and gravel” roofs. Built-up systems are installed by alternating layers of asphalt or tar and supporting fabrics directly onto the roof. You can choose the number of layers (or plies) that are installed. The final layer of a built-up roofing system consists of stone or gravel.
