Shingle roofing systems for steep slope commercial applications
Shingles—both 3 tab and architectural—are often used for steep slope commercial roofing applications due to their low price, as well as their excellent weatherproofing and insulating qualities. Plus, they can be made in almost any color and designer shingles can be designed to mimic the luxurious appearance of more expensive materials such as shakes, tile, and even slate.
As you’re planning your commercial shingle roof installation, repair or replacement, here’s what you need to keep in mind:
- Asphalt shingles: A cost-effective choice for commercial roofing
Asphalt shingle roofing systems are some of the most cost-effective options available for commercial roofing applications. They are available in many color varieties and often come with manufacturer’s warranties of 15-30 years.Your roofing contractor will be able to install your shingles to address energy efficiency, fire safety and building code concerns.

- Architectural shingles provide further durability, insulation
Architectural shingles are comprised of the same materials as 3 tab shingles, but are multi-layered and heavier, providing for additional durability, weatherproofing and insulation benefits. These added benefits, of course, come with an added cost. But they also often come with a ”lifetime” manufacturer’s warranty if properly installed and maintained.No matter how big the roofing project, a qualified roofing contractor will help you get the best value for the cost, and install your system correctly for increased durability, energy efficiency and fire safety.

- Choosing the right roofing contractor
For commercial roofing projects—especially big ones—you need to choose a roofing contractor that is not only experienced and diligent, but honest and trustworthy. You need to trust that their work will stand the test of time and adhere to the conditions of the manufacturer’s warranty of your shingles. You also need to trust that their quoted price is reasonable and that they will adhere to the agreed-upon timeline. This way, you know you are getting the greatest value, both for the initial installation and the structural integrity of the commercial shingle roofing system for years to come.You also want to look for a contractor that provides only premium shingles—CertainTeed and GAF are some of the best manufacturers available. While subpar products allow some contractors to provide lower quote, they will not provide the same level of protection nor will they last as long.
