Want a Commercial Building that Stands Out? Start with Specialty Roofing

Your building’s roof might be the last thing you think about today. But what if you started to view the roof as a way to turn heads and get noticed? And as a way to build the brand housed inside that structure? Specialty roofing can help you accomplish all of that and more.

Your roof says more about your structure than you think it might. Certainly, its condition says a lot about your organization. But the roofing material you choose also sends a loud and clear message about what’s important to you, your visitors, your customers, and your community. Let’s talk about how our specialty roofing company can help!

We Offer a Wide Selection of Specialty Roofing Materials

If you’re wondering what qualifies as “specialty roofing,” you’re not alone. It can also be called “alternative styles” and is anything apart from typical roofing materials like asphalt shingles, single-ply roofs, and built-up roofs.

Specialty roofing is often chosen for new construction or roof replacement when the building owner desires a distinctive look. Of course, since these materials are not conventional, choosing the right roofing contractor who can deliver the know-how, experience, and professionalism needed for these unique roofing services is of the utmost importance.

Historical Roofing

Our skilled craftspeople regularly work with materials common to historic buildings. Historic restoration with slate, tile, metal, and cedar are examples of specialty roofing unique to historic buildings.

We understand the importance of preserving your historic building by installing a roof that will keep it dry and by protecting it while we work.

At GSM Roofing, you can count on us to treat your historic building just like you would. We know how important it is to you, its inhabitants or employees, and the community that treasures it. Your historic building might be a gem from the past, but we want to help escort it into the future.

Slate Roofing

Our experience with slate roofing is far beyond that of other roofing contractors, and that’s why we were selected to help write the National Slate Association’s slate installation manual. We have installed many slate roofs on historic structures, landmarks, facilities, and more.

Slate is a desirable specialty roofing material because of its beauty and the many ways you can customize it. It comes in various colors and thicknesses to create the look you want.

We can replace an existing slate roof, change a roof to slate, or work from a picture to recreate the look you desire.

Let’s talk about slate and all its possibilities!

Tile Roofing

Tile captures the essence of specialty roofing because it does such a phenomenal job of grabbing attention for your building. Terracotta and concrete tiles are beautiful, but they can also deliver up to 100-year-long lifespans!

Choose from interlocking or fluted tiles, curved or shingle tiles—shake, graduated, tapered, flat, and imported tile styles.

If you’re looking forward to getting creative with your commercial roof, consider all the benefits and flexibility of tile roofs from GSM Roofing. We’re sure you won’t be disappointed.

Metal Roofing

It may surprise you that metal roofing can be a specialty roof—until you realize that we offer all-custom metal roof options. Our decades of experience manufacturing and installing custom metal roofs help us deliver great function with unrivaled beauty.

Our creative craftspeople can design a metal roof that turns heads, protects your building, and lasts for decades.

We will also install pre-manufactured metal roofs, which will reduce your upfront cost. The panels can be cut to fit any roof size and are easy to install, making materials and labor more affordable.

If you’re thinking about a metal roof for your commercial building, let’s discuss whether custom or pre-fabricated metal is best for you.

Cedar Roofing

Cedar roofing is eye-catching with its natural appeal, and it also delivers remarkable longevity when properly maintained. It adds character, sophistication, and even energy savings!

Our roofing team knows precisely how to install cedar roofing on traditional lathe or with a cedar breather over plywood. Many complexities come with installing cedar shakes and shingles, but we have it covered with our decades of experience and know-how.

As with all specialty roofing options, cedar will deliver distinctiveness and make your building stand out. Get in touch for more information today!

Is a Specialty Roof in Your Building’s Future?

When you think of roofing, we hope you think of all the creative options that are available. Most people don’t think about getting imaginative with commercial buildings. Still, when you open your mind to specialty roofing, your structure can become an unforgettable landmark representing your unique organization.

Don’t think you have to navigate the many specialty roofing options on your own. We’re here to share our knowledge and guide you through every step—from material selection to maintenance. We think it’s time to discuss specialty roofing. Let’s get started!
