The systems available to commercial building owners, the way these systems are installed vary from residential roofing applications. The problems that commercial building owners face and the solutions to their commercial roofing problems also vary from residential roofing applications. Many people don’t realize the differences in residential and commercial roofing applications, but it is important to realize these two industries are not the same, there are differences between them, and they should be handled differently.

Commercial Roofing Installation
The installation of commercial roofing systems also varies greatly from that of residential roofs. The most significant difference is length of installation. Commercial roofs can take over a month to install, while most residential roofs can be done in a day or two. The increase in time for commercial roofs is partly due to the size of the building, as commercial roofs tend to be larger than residential. Another contributing factor to the time increase during installation is that commercial roofing systems are often more complex and difficult to install. They often require multiple days of waiting for product to cure, settle, be glued, or other time consuming activities.
Commercial Roofing Solutions
Finally, commercial roofing systems differ from residential systems in how common problems with the roof are solved. If you have a leak on a residential roof, it typically means only one thing: you need to patch that area of your roof. However, if your commercial roof has a leak, you may need to patch the area, or you may need to apply coating to the entire roof. The leak may be indicative of bigger problems requiring roof replacement, or you may simply need new flashings.
Basically, just remember that commercial roofing solutions to roofing problems are not the same as residential problems. Commercial roofs are susceptible to different types of problems, and the problems they face that are the same often require different solutions.
