Is Shingle Roofing Right for Your Commercial Building?
Not every commercial structure is a prime candidate for shingle roofing. Shingles are a good choice when the roof’s pitch is a minimum of 4:12 (that’s a vertical rise of 4 inches for every 12 inches of horizontal distance).
With various colors and textures, shingles can enhance your building’s aesthetic, helping to pull the entire look of your building together to match your vision. Some available colors include blue, red, brown, tan, white, green, gray, and many combinations of blended colors.
Asphalt shingles are also viable when your project’s budget is tight.
If your roof’s pitch is less than 3:12, shingles are not an ideal choice. Or, if you vent grease, fat, oil, or other flammables at roof level, shingles can ignite faster than other more fire-resistant roofing materials.
