Are you aware that it is important to always keep your roof in good condition? Imagine running a restaurant business when all of a sudden, water starts to drip from the roof because of the heavy rain. This will create a bad impression for your business. This is just a simple example of how important maintaining a roof is. In commercial establishments, you should hire commercial roofing services to make sure that the roof is in good condition all the time.

There are different types of commercial roofing materials available. What should you choose? First of all, roof cladding is water-proofing your roof. This will prevent water from entering the commercial establishment. Although functional, it can still have a decorative purpose. Roof cladding materials vary in colour and style so you can still choose the design.

The most popular material for commercial roofing in Western Australia is metals including metal tie, steel, copper, aluminium and standing seam. These metallic materials can last many years if installed correctly. Aluminium roofing can withstand different weather conditions and is more affordable. On the other hand, copper is more expensive but you can expect it to last for 100 years.
Tile roofing is also used in commercial roofs today. Tile is made of clay but can also be made from rubber or concrete. Tiles come in different styles and colour too. Clay tiles are more expensive and it can last 50 years. However, clay tiles are heavy which will require extra support for the roof.

Another commercial roofing material is asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles are long-lasting and it can provide you 20-30 years of service. Laminated asphalt shingles come in different colours and textures. It can even appear to be expensive like slate or shake tiles. Laminated asphalt shingles can last 25-50 years.
