Commercial Roofing Questions Answered
Are there sustainable roofing options for my commercial building?
Eco-friendly commercial roofing systems adhere to the standards created by the U.S. Green Building Council. Just about all types of traditional roofing systems offer green alternatives that feature one or more of the following properties:
- Average lifespan of 50 or more years
- High R-value
- Manufactured from recycled materials
- Vegetative (sustainable rooftops made from plants, also called 'living roofs')
Roofs that have the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, stamp of approval are considered sustainable roofing products according to the standards developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.
How much can I expect to pay for a commercial roofing system in Pine Mountain Club, CA?
The cost of a commercial roof can vary significantly. Factors that influence pricing include the square-footage of the roof, type of roofing system and location. For instance, a tar-and-gravel roof installation on a 4,000 sq ft commercial building in Florida may cost $20,000 while the same job may be double that in California.
The only way to get an accurate price quote is to get an estimate from a local roofing contractor. The estimate is typically free, so there's really nothing to lose.
