St. Louis’ Expert Mansard Roof Installers
Commercial mansard roofing maximizes usable space and energy efficiency
If you’re looking for a mansard roofing company for either residential or commercial uses, you’ve found the right contractor.
A mansard roof – sometimes referred to as a French or curb roof – is a combination of a hip and a gambrel roof. They were invented in the 16th century and popularized in the 17th century thanks to famed French architect Francois Mansart.
Mansard roofing is sometimes implemented into commercial buildings for several reasons, not the least of which is its utility. It provides space benefits similar to flat roofs while having a steeper slope for improved drainage.
In addition to its usefulness, Mansard roofs are beautiful and unique. Commercial mansard roofs are used in the design of some buildings to exude an aesthetic of history and elegance, as if you were walking through the streets of Paris, France.
Commercial mansard roofs are four-sided and double-pitched – there is a lower segment of roofing with a steep slope and an upper segment of roofing with a lower slope. Sometimes, there is even a flat roof at the top, which can be protected using common flat roofing membranes or systems. The second, lower-pitched segment often can’t be seen from the front of the building.
Commercial Mansard Roof Installations
At Wildwood Roofing, we offer a full range of roof styles for your commercial enterprise. That includes mansard roofs, which provide a unique aesthetic to your new building.
For design purposes, there is often a dormer window protruding from the steep slope portion of the building, which can pose several challenges with commercial mansard roof installation.
Your roofing contractor will have to ensure flashing and seams are sealed completely to provide for proper drainage and prevent leaks.
Special care must be taken during commercial mansard roof installation, especially if you are building your facility from the ground up. Framing the iconic mansard shape takes skill and must be done properly by a licensed roofing contractor to ensure its long-term effectiveness.
Benefits of Commercial Mansard Roofs
Similar to flat roofs, mansard roofing opens up the usable space, meaning you will be able to put offices or meeting rooms where the attic would traditionally be placed.
Another lesser-known benefit of commercial mansard roofs is the extra insulation provided by the steep-slope portion of the roof, which can often extend halfway down the front of the building.
The shingles, underlayment, and roofing deck all act as an extra wall, which protects your facility against extreme temperatures and keeps your utility bills low.
