Looking for an excellent roofing company Charlotte is not difficult. Some roofing companies will do both residential and commercial projects. Look for roofing companies that are fully licensed, insured and bonded. Finding a family owned and operated business is also a plus.
Commercial roofing options
While some of the demands of residential and commercial roofing are similar there are also special materials that are only available for commercial projects.
New construction roof installation, replacements and additions, inspections and evaluations, repairs, chimney caps, as well as insurance claims are all projects handled by a commercial roofer
Materials available for commercial roofing projects
Single-ply flat roofs made from TPO or EPDM are commonly used for commercial buildings. They are typically white or black membranes but can come in other colors. These systems are usually used when the roof has a pitch below 1/12.
Tapered insulation systems are also available. These roofs use tapered insulation design to create a roof that will meet engineering specifications for the project while providing drainage and preventing excessive pooling or shedding of water. The contractors at Advanced Roofing have the experience, knowledge and training to correct issues with architectural plans that can create drainage and other roofing problems on-site and create alternative solutions.
Parapet wall coping can also be done. These copings are made from either steel, aluminum or copper. They are made in Advanced Roofing and Exterior’s shop to specifically match the widths of the walls. They are connected to one another by splice plates or standing seams to create a water-proof connection.
Metal roofing is another available material, as well as shingles. Metal roofing is more expensive then shingles but often offers a longer lifespan. The shingles are more common for residential projects. They tend to offer a 20 year lifespan and come in a variety of materials with varying costs and advantages.
Clay, concrete, wood, slate and synthetic roofing tiles are also available for both residential and commercial projects. Clay tiles are often expensive but create a historic look that is desirable in some areas while slate can be found in many colors depending on which region of the country it is collected from. All of these materials allow a degree of customization either through color choice or profile. The synthetic products are made to mimic the other materials listed above, they are commonly made from recycled plastic and rubber and are usually a fraction of the price of the actual material.
Residential roofing projects
There are a variety of residential projects that are completed by Advanced Roofing and Exteriors contractors. These projects include new construction, roof replacements and additions, roof inspections and evaluations, repairs, the additions and maintenance of chimney caps and roof accessories.
For residential projects, there are a number of materials available. Some of these are also used for commercial projects but some are more readily available for residential projects. The types of roofing materials available include asphalt shingles, the most popular material for residential areas, metal roofing, cedar shakes and shingles, natural slate roofing, clay and concrete tiles, as well as synthetic slate and cedar and single ply flat roof TPO or EPDM.
There are advantages and disadvantages for each material. As mentioned before, asphalt shingles are the most popular and often the most affordable. Metal roofing is a bit more expensive but it tends to last longer. The hard roofs made with clay or concrete tile produce the most durable roofs, sometimes lasting as long as 100 years. These materials are more expensive but they result in a somewhat historic look. The wood shakes and shingles are made from cedar, cypress, pine and redwood trees. These shingles are resistant to decay, moisture and insects which makes them incredibly durable with very little maintenance. Slate roofing materials are available in a number of colors depending on which region they are sourced from. Because it is naturally sourced and not manufactured the pricing for this material may vary depending upon availability and demand.
