When it comes to getting a brand new roof for your commercial building, it can be a tough decision to choose which type of roofing system to opt for. Modern roofers are able to set up anything from high quality metal panel roofing to new TPO designs that can withstand bad weather conditions and strong winds for decades to come.
For flat roofs, you can definitely consider built-up roofing (BUR) as a viable option. This type of roof is not only aesthetically pleasing but also a true multi-layer insulating roof that will help reduce your energy costs. As for its durability rating, it can be said that most types of BUR are expected to last for well over 30 years.
Unlike other commercial roofing types, metal is considered to be among the most durable, and its warranty may even exceed the lifespan of most roofs. Metal is highly energy-efficient, virtually maintenance-free, and depending on the type of metal and its specific construction, it can last for up to 50 years easily.

While spray-applied flat roofing systems are not as versatile or resilient as metal roofs, they can be highly sustainable. This is because they can easily resist ponding water, and they have excellent reflective properties. Most of all, however, new spray-applied roofs can simply be added in multiple layers over time on top of the old ones, so you don’t have to worry about durability issues.
