If you are looking for a commercial roofing system, there are plenty of options to choose from. That, of course, doesn’t mean that one is better than the others. There are many excellent materials you can use. Some have a higher lifespan, some are more resistant to wind, and others conserve energy. Every commercial building has different needs. Here, we will go through some of the best commercial roofing products and explain what makes them so good. 


The first on our list is metal. Many companies decide to go for metal roofs since they are durable, meaning they won’t need to invest as much in maintenance and repairs. If you are worried about strong winds or tornadoes damaging your roof, this is a great way to fortify your business. Metal roofs can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour. The average lifespan for this type of roof can be quite impressive, usually ranging from 40 to 60 years. There are also many different types of metal you can use, including copper, aluminum, stainless steel, etc.


If you are looking for an inexpensive option, this is the way to go. While shingle is most common on residential roofs, that doesn’t mean you can’t have it on other types of buildings. These are especially common for roofs with steep lines, and there are many shingle types you can use. Asphalt shingle is a popular one, but plastic and ceramics are also an option you can take. While the average shingle roof lifespan (15-25 years) is not as great as with other materials, installation is quite simple. 


TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin), PVC (polyvinyl chloride), and EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) are also popular roofing solutions. EPDM is durable, for example, and offers incredible resistance to pollution and sunlight. These roofs last long in Texas heat, and the installation is easy too. 

TPO and PVC roofing systems are also tough, and they are lightweight on top of that. They offer great defense against high temperatures and winds that are actively present in Texas. TPO and PVC are on the pricier side, but they offer exceptional quality.


In the past couple of years, more and more building owners have started experimenting with green roofs. If you are worried about conserving energy or reducing pollution, this roof has your back. The idea behind it is simple. All you need to have is water-tight material laid onto a surface to prevent water leaks or damage, also called a waterproof membrane, and plants on top of it.

This type of roof can last for decades, and it offers great protection from the elements. Moreover, the entire building will get a fresh new look. One of the things we need to mention, however, is that these roofs require water and drainage management, as well as regular maintenance.


Finally, we have built-up roofing. These roofs can last 20 years. The design consists of alternating layers of gravel and tar, and the number of layers will affect durability and price. The best thing about these roofs is that they are easy to repair and extremely flexible.
