Steel Roofing for Commercial

If you are looking for a low-maintenance solution to your commercial roofing needs, steel roofing is definitely the way to go. This type of roof is perfect for your business because it is easy to install, provides flexibility in terms of design, and allows you to customize your roof to best fit your branding.


Metal Roofing Benefits

Steel roofing is the preferred material for a lot of business owners, and it isn’t hard to understand why.

Steel Roofing Endures
When it comes to your business, expenses make a huge difference. You are always looking at the bottom line to ensure you’re getting the most out of your budget. You can’t turn a profit if you keep spending everything you make, so you have to be thrifty about what you invest in for your commercial building. One of the smartest investments you can make in your structure is a steel roof. While you may pay less for asphalt shingles, you will pay over the long-term. These types of roofs require far more maintenance, and will need to be replaced regularly. steel roofing, on the other hand, lasts for 50 years and in some cases, even longer than that. While the upfront cost of steel roofing may be higher, over time, you are saving a lot of money by investing in this type of roofing.

Why is steel roofing so long-lasting? Because it endures. This durable material can take anything you throw at it, even snowy, freezing Canada winters. We also offer warranties on our steel roofs, so you can rest assured that you have made an investment that will serve your business for years to come.
steel Roofing Keeps You Safe

You don’t want to worst case scenario to happen, but you are always prepared for it. That’s why you have an insurance policy on your commercial building. That’s also why it’s best to invest in a steel roof. When it comes to fire safety, steel roofing is your best bet. steel roofing has a class A fire rating, which is the best fire resistance rating of any kind of roofing material. When you invest in steel roofing, you keep yourself, your employees, your customers, and your commercial building safe.

Steel Roofing is Versatile
The practical aspects of why steel roofing is the best aside, this type of roofing is also incredibly versatile. You can customize your steel roof to your precise liking, which is particularly important for business owners. You need your commercial building to reflect well on your business, and your roof has a greater impact than you think. Imagine the last building you saw that was truly ugly. Chances are, there was a problem with the roof. Whether it was in disrepair or simply didn’t match the style of the architecture, it interfered with the aesthetics of the building. You don’t want this to be the case for your commercial building. Fortunately, you don’t have to compromise when it comes to steel roofing. Regardless of the style and size your building, we can customize your steel roof to reflect your brand. From panels to more traditional shingles, steel roofs can be customized to your liking in terms of style, scale, and color. There are even accessories on the market, such as matching trims. However you want your steel roof to look on your commercial building, we can accomplish it.

Steel Roofing is More Energy Efficient
Business owners not only have a moral obligation to care about the environment, they also have a financial motivation. When you own a commercial building, you are acutely aware of just how expensive the HVAC system can be. From running the air conditioning all summer to running the heat all winter, the energy bill may have given you sticker shock the first time you saw it. Therefore, you are always looking for ways to make your business more energy efficient and eco-friendly. Fortunately, steel roofing offers a perfect solution to that issue. steel is an energy-efficient roofing choice because it reflects the sun’s rays. This means it doesn’t absorb the heat from the sun, so when you are running the A/C, it doesn’t have to work as hard to cool your building. When you invest in a steel roofing, you can expect to save not only on roof maintenance costs, but on your energy bill.

Steel Roofing Requires Little Maintenance
As a business owner, you have a lot on your plate. You are trying to juggle everything related to your business, from your customers to your employees to your budget to your product or service to the maintenance of your commercial building. You don’t have a lot of time to spend worrying about the appearance or structural integrity of your roof. Fortunately, when you opt for steel roofing, you don’t have to worry about maintenance nearly as often as with other roofing materials. Instead of making time for annual roof maintenance, you can largely just leave your steel roof alone. If there is a build up of debris such as leaves or twigs, simply use a hose or pressure washer to remove them. This saves countless hours on roof maintenance so you can spend your time focused on what really matters: your business.

Steel Roofing

You may have strayed away from the idea of a steel roof in the past when considering what to do for your commercial business due to some common misconceptions. We would like to address these myths here.

MYTH: steel Roofing is Loud
This one makes sense given what you know about steel. When you hit a piece of steel, it clangs, so why wouldn’t it make the same sound any time something touches your roof? While this is logical, this issue has been addressed by roofing professionals. We know that you don’t want to deal with a loud, annoying vibration every time it rains on your commercial building. In reality, steel roofs are placed over underlayments, which prevent that clunking noise you might anticipate. If noisiness is one of your concerns about installing a steel roof, ease your fears.

MYTH: steel Roofs Easily Dent
Again, this may make sense given what you know about steel. It make seem like any time there’s a hail storm or debris falls on your roof, it will dent. This is inaccurate because we only use the highest quality steel products when it comes to our steel roofing solutions. Simply put, this roofing is invincible. We use high quality aluminum, steel, or copper to install a roof that can stand up to the elements without denting.

MYTH: steel Roofs Attract Lightning
This is a common misconception that speaks to an understanding of the science of electricity. While steel conducts electricity, it doesn’t draw electricity to it. In fact, steel roofing is actually SAFER to have during a storm. This is because it is non-combustible, so if your roof is struck by lightning, it won’t catch on fire.

MYTH: You Can’t Walk on a steel Roof
This would, indeed, make steel roofing quite inconvenient, IF it were true. In reality, it is perfectly possible to walk on a steel roof without causing damage—you just need to know how to do so. We can teach you the correct approach to walking on a steel roof.

Consider roof scale and its impact on how your business looks.

Color
The different colors of steel roofing offered allows you to get creative and really show off your brand’s unique style. steel roofing can be completely customized with a variety of colors, so use this as an opportunity to attract the right audience to your business. For example, if you are trying to catch the eye, a brighter pop of color on your roof might be best. Alternatively, if your target customer is more conservative and traditional, you might go for a neutral color. Think about what color communicates about your business.

Style
What is great about steel roofing is that there is an incredible amount of customization available. You can create whatever look you want when it comes to your steel roof. Whether you want to recreate a more traditional shingle-style roof or you like the look of standing seam panels, there are a variety of styles you can use for steel roofing. Consider how the style of tile fits into the overall message you are sending about your business.
