The Major Differences Between Residential And Commercial Roofing

A roof is not only a roof, as many people think. There are several different types of roofs, each with its own set of characteristics. The sort of roof is determined largely by the kind of building it will be installed on.

The following are some of the most significant distinctions between residential and commercial roofs:


Residential roofs, on average, have a significant slope. Commercial roofs are generally lower and flatter than residential ones. Flat roofs are more expensive to build and require more maintenance than pitched roofs. Because flat roofs need additional area for pipes, smokestacks, and other similar elements, as well as necessitate extra space, they take up more room overall.

Size and scope

Residential roofs are generally smaller than commercial ones. Commercial roofs, on the other hand, can vary in size from one building to another and are considerably larger.

Form and function 

A roof’s design is determined by the purpose it serves. Homeowners desire their properties to be both useful and appealing.

Roofing materials and designs are carefully chosen. Commercial properties, on the other hand, do not face these issues. Consider your favorite restaurant; you recall a single dish, but nothing else about the roof!

Roofing material

Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular roofing options for houses. When it comes to residential roofs, other materials include slate, cedar, and aluminum. Commercial structures make use of the most popular form of flat roofing. The materials utilized on a building’s roof might differ from one another.
