Commercial roofing is a rapidly growing sector of the construction industry that helps commercial building owners upgrade, update, and maintain their commercial properties.
Using a range of materials and solutions, commercial roofers are able to prevent and repair damages to roofs, gutters, and siding, or create a new facade that changes the whole look of the property.
The style and type of material used will depend on a number of factors, as local regulations, weather, and trends are constantly changing. Here’s what you need to know.
What Is Commercial Roofing?
Commercial roofing is a term that refers to a number of different services and solutions for the outside structure of a building.
Hotels, office complexes, shopping centers, medical centers, malls, and more can benefit from commercial roofing services as exterior structures are damaged due to time or accident.
Commercial roofers can detect and repair leaks, update roof materials, repair other damage, and provide inspections to identify potential threats to the building and roof structure.
What Are Current Roofing Industry Trends?
Energy conservation is a key trend impacting the commercial roofing industry, as building codes and guidelines require that materials and repair choices meet certain expectations. This might mean that the building ultimately has a high level of energy efficiency or that the materials used to repair and update the building are environmentally safe.
In certain historic districts, the trend is toward authenticity, requiring commercial property owners to maintain a certain aesthetic that fits in with the time period. Depending on the age of the buildings, this could mean using only certain materials, conforming to a certain design aesthetic, or otherwise maintaining the look of the period.
COVID-19 has also impacted trends in the construction industry, as it is more difficult to get certain supplies now than it was before the pandemic. Though we are beginning to see the other side of the harshest part of the coronavirus pandemic, it is likely that certain shortages will continue for years.
