Commercial roofing systems have come a long way. There is a good variety of products, according to customers’ needs, tastes and styles.

One very popular roofing material that is used for commercial buildings is the spray polyurethane foam, or SPF. This type of material consists of a liquid that is applied on an existing roof, which then expands into foam. This type of material is suitable for mostly any climate and, if it is installed and maintained the right way, it can last up to 50 years. Its price depends on the thickness of the layer applied, as well as on the structure of the building. A SPF roofing system is energy-efficient, long-lasting and waterproof.

Single-ply membranes are yet another good type of material for commercial roofing Connecticut projects. They are added to the insulation layer of your roofing, creating a protective layer. This material is durable, namely it can last for about 30 years.

Metal is one of the most frequently used types of material. Most of the metal roofing systems are created with galvanized steel, but they may also include aluminum or tin. After installing a metal roof, you can still add a protective coating against rust, UV rays or weather conditions.
