EPDM roofing is a durable and versatile choice. EPDM is one of the longest lasting types of commercial roofs available. It is easy to install, offers low cost maintenance and repairs.
Metal commercial roofing systems use metals such as steel, aluminum and zinc. Metal roofs are considered a superior choice for commercial buildings due to their overall durability. Warehouses, barns, hotels and churches often choose metal roofs for their commercial building roofs not only for its strength, durability and longevity but also for its aesthetic qualities which can enhance basic building structures and made them more visually appealing.
TPO roofing systems are gaining fast popularity due to the durable materials used in this type of commercial roofing system.

How to Choose a Commercial Roofing Company
It’s always a good idea to fully pre-qualify and research before you select a commercial roofing contractor. This extra legwork in the beginning can often save you difficulties later.
Call the company and verify their permanent address, telephone number, tax identification number and, where required, a business license. A professional roofing contractor always has this information readily available.
Look for a company with a proven track record that readily offers client references and a list of completed projects.
It’s a good idea to have direct contact with the person who will be working as the site supervisor before you select a company. This is your main contact person so you need make sure you have confidence the commercial roofing project will be supervised appropriately and quality control and safety procedures are established.
It’s perfectly acceptable, even expected, for potential customers to ask a roofing contractor for both local references and a list of professional memberships and associations.
Don’t forget to verify if a roofing contractor has general liability insurance coverage and worker’s compensation insurance. Make sure you see copies of insurance certificates. Double check that the effective dates extend through the duration of the commercial roofing project.
Many states require that roofing contractors be licensed; some states have specific licensing requirements. In addition, some contractors are able to obtain bonding from surety companies, while others are not. Check to see if a prospective roofing contractor is properly licensed and/or bonded. Your state’s department of professional regulation or licensing board will have this information.
Insist on a written proposal and examine it for complete descriptions of the work and specifications. Be sure the proposal includes the approximate starting and completion dates, payment procedures, and any additional issues such as landscape damage prevention and debris cleanup.
There are two basic categories of roofing warranties: the contractor’s warranty, which covers workmanship, and the manufacturer’s warranty, which covers (as a minimum) materials. Be sure that your contractor offers a warranty for commercial roofing that covers workmanship. A manufacturer’s warranty alone will not protect you if the roof is improperly installed. Carefully read and understand any roofing warranty offered and watch for provisions that would void it.
