Asphalt shingles in commercial roofing systems are rare but they are not unheard of. Many commercial properties and buildings prefer flat roofing membranes as these are better suited for their type of construction. In some cases, however, the architecture itself calls for a sloped roof and this is where asphalt shingles shine the best.
Still, many property owners are on the fence about choosing asphalt shingles for a commercial building. Let our commercial roofing specialists at Fortenberry Roofing enumerate some notable benefits of using asphalt shingles on your commercial property.
The life cycle cost of residential or commercial roofing systems is the estimated total cost of owning the roof throughout its life span. These costs include maintenance expenses, as well as potential repairs resulting from any damage to the roof. Asphalt shingles have one of the lowest life cycle costs among other types of roofing, including flat roofing options normally used in commercial buildings.
While asphalt shingles might not hold any titles in terms of roofing strength and durability, their low cost and availability more than makes up for it. This is not to say that these shingles won’t last at all. Modern asphalt shingles have been developed to withstand a wide variety of common problems that plague roofs including wind, impact, sun, and water-related issues.
Feel free to discuss color and design possibilities with your commercial roof contractor for your asphalt roofing. As far as style is concerned, asphalt shingles come in a palette of colors that can pair well with any existing design theme your building might have. This sheer number of options are one of its biggest draws as more and more people are exploring bold new motifs for their commercial buildings.
