6 Factors That Affect Commercial Roof Lifespan
How long has it been since you repaired or replaced the roof of your commercial building? Unlike your home’s roof, you do not get as many chances to spot the signs that the roof of a commercial building needs repairs. However, the longer you wait on repairs, the higher the potential cost. Keeping an eye out for these six factors can help you extend the lifespan of your commercial roof.
Your Materials Matter
As we talked about roofing materials in depth in this blog post, we will summarize the differences here.
- Asphalt Shingles last around 20 years but start to turn upwards in high humidity.
- Metal is more expensive than asphalt but also more durable.
- Plastic Polymer lasts a long time, but potentially provides worse insulation and soaks up hazardous materials.
- Clay Tiles are beautiful but costly, and sometimes brittle.
- Concrete Tiles are durable and heavy. Make sure your house can handle them.
- Wood Shingles do require more periodic maintenance than other materials.
