Architectural Roofing For Commercial And Residential Building.
Having the right type of roofing is a very important aspect for any kind of building. The function of a roof is to protect you and your assets from destruction by animals and weather conditions such as rain, sun or wind. Roofing refers to the covering of a building and the framing or structure which supports that covering. Types of roofs include EPDM roofing, flat roofs, green roofs, modified bitumen, traditional asphalt, tar and gravel, tile roofing and white membrane roofing systems.
The material of the roof, the type of construction and the durability of the roof should be the general considerations for the purchase of the roof. There are traditional roofing materials such as banana leaves, wheaten straw or sea grass which are less durable than the contemporary roofing materials like laminated glass, copper and aluminium sheeting.
Basically, a roof for both residential and commercial construction is for the protection but there are other purposes that may cause the roofing designs in the two types of construction to vary.

The knowledge and skills required for construction of commercial roofing is more complex than of residential roofing.
