Commercial roofing can be more complex than residential roofing. In many cases, commercial buildings have larger roofs – and they need different types of protection.
Fortunately, Brotherhood Roofing is the premier commercial roofing contractor in Dallas, Plano, Frisco and the surrounding communities. We can install, inspect, repair or replace your commercial roof to protect your business and everything in it.
Whether you’re building a new commercial space, such as a factory, restaurant, warehouse or apartment building, or you’ve noticed that your building’s roof isn’t performing the way it should, we may be able to help you.
But let’s be frank: You probably don’t think about your building’s roof much. In fact, most commercial building owners don’t think about roofing until there’s a leak or another visible problem.
However, at the very least, you should be getting a free commercial roof inspection at least once a year – that way, you can make repairs as necessary and save yourself time and money by avoiding a complete roof replacement, which may become necessary if you don’t keep up on maintenance and repairs.
Installing a new commercial roof takes extensive knowledge and experience. Brotherhood Roofing will work with you to determine the best type of roof for your needs, as well as help you zero in on a solution that fits in your budget. Call our office today to schedule a consultation with an expert commercial roofing contractor who can learn about your needs and explain all your options.
If your commercial building’s roof is damaged, you need to have it repaired immediately. Unfortunately, roof damage can spiral out of control quickly – particularly when water is involved – and that means the sooner you make repairs, the more money you’ll save. The most common commercial roof problems stem from:
If you don’t notice any visible symptoms of damage, the best way to find out whether your roof is damaged is to take advantage of a free roof inspection from a professional commercial roofing contractor. Your inspector will get on your roof and look for signs of damage – as well as signs that damage is imminent, such as low-hanging tree branches or pooling water – to help you determine how well your roof is performing and whether it needs immediate repairs.
All commercial roofs eventually need to be replaced. Some roofing types last longer than others do, and in some cases, roof damage is so significant that a roof doesn’t last as long as it should. Although you can put off roof replacement by maintaining your commercial roof properly and performing repairs as soon as they become necessary, it’s inevitable – and when it’s time for a commercial roof replacement, you need to work with a contractor you can trust to install the right materials the right way.

The most common types of commercial roofs include:
Here’s a closer look at each.
Single-ply roofing is flexible and versatile. This type of commercial roof uses TPO, PVC or EPDM materials, which resist cracking, peeling and other issues. Designed to be installed in a single layer, these types of roofs are generally cost-effective.
TPO roofs are made from thermoplastic polyolefin. They’re most commonly used on low-slope roofs, and they have heat-welded seams. TPO roofs are highly reflective and are available in a wide range of colors, although many business owners choose white, gray or tan.
PVC roofs are made from polyvinyl chloride and consist of two layers (and they have a polyester reinforcement scrim between them). These types of roofs are designed to last, and they’re very durable. They’re also fire-resistant, which makes them a great choice for many commercial building owners.
EPDM roofs are made from ethylene propylene diene monomer, which is lightweight, somewhat elastic and very durable. These roofs are exceptionally UV-resistant, and they’re one of the most popular types of commercial roofing because they’re very cost-effective.
Modified bitumen roofs are a combination of asphalt and a chemical polymer, and they’re very resistant to constantly changing temperatures. These types of roofs feature melted-together seams to lock out water, and they’re rated against wind, fire and hail.
A built-up roofing system is similar to what you’d see in a house. They generally feature three to five layers of protection to help your business weather serious temperature fluctuations. This type of roofing is extremely common on smaller commercial buildings and rental properties.
Metal roofing is long-lasting and durable, and it’s very reliable. You can use it on low-slope and steep roofs, and it’s designed to protect your commercial building from all kinds of weather events, water incursion, and a variety of other problems.
Liquid-applied roofing is extremely good at resisting water, particularly in hard-to-reach areas that would be at risk with another type of roofing. It’s constructed on the spot with resin and polyester, and it goes on as a liquid.
