Steep & Low Slope Commercial Roofing

Top Solutions for Steep & Low-Sloped Commercial Roofs

Introduction: The roof of any building is its first line of defense against the elements. When it comes to commercial buildings with steep-sloped roofs, selecting the right roofing material is crucial for ensuring durability, longevity, and cost-effectiveness. Steep-sloped roofs, commonly found in commercial structures like office buildings, shopping centers, and warehouses, require materials that can withstand harsh weather conditions while providing efficient drainage. In this article, we'll explore some of the best roofing materials for steep-sloped commercial buildings and delve into why they are superior choices.

The Top Options For Steep Sloped Buildings

Asphalt Shingles

  • Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular roofing materials for steep-sloped commercial buildings, and for good reason. They offer a balance of affordability, durability, and aesthetic appeal. Asphalt shingles come in a variety of styles and colors, allowing building owners to customize their roof to complement the overall design. Moreover, they are relatively easy to install and require minimal maintenance, making them a cost-effective choice for commercial properties.

Metal Roofing

  •  Metal roofing is another excellent option for steep-sloped commercial buildings due to its exceptional durability and longevity. Materials such as steel, aluminum, and copper are commonly used in metal roofing systems, offering superior resistance to fire, wind, and extreme weather conditions. Metal roofs are also lightweight, which reduces the structural load on the building and can lead to cost savings over time. Additionally, metal roofing is highly recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly choice for sustainable construction projects.

Slate Tiles

  •  Slate tiles are renowned for their timeless beauty and unmatched durability, making them an ideal choice for steep-sloped commercial buildings seeking a sophisticated aesthetic. While slate roofing tends to be more expensive upfront compared to other materials, its longevity and low maintenance requirements justify the investment in the long run. Slate tiles are naturally resistant to fire, mold, and pests, ensuring the integrity of the roof for decades to come. Furthermore, slate roofs add value to commercial properties by enhancing their curb appeal and prestige.

Clay Tiles

  • Clay tiles have been used in roofing for centuries and continue to be a popular choice for steep-sloped commercial buildings, particularly in regions with warm climates. These tiles are made from natural clay and are available in various shapes, sizes, and colors, allowing for versatility in design. Clay tiles offer excellent thermal insulation, helping to regulate indoor temperatures and reduce energy costs. Additionally, they are resistant to rot, insects, and UV damage, ensuring long-term performance and minimal maintenance requirements.

Wood Shingles or Shakes

  • Wood shingles or shakes provide a rustic charm and natural aesthetic that can enhance the architectural appeal of steep-sloped commercial buildings. Typically made from cedar, redwood, or pine, wood roofing offers excellent insulation properties and breathability, allowing for adequate ventilation and moisture control. While wood roofing requires more maintenance than other materials to prevent issues such as rot, mold, and insect infestation, regular upkeep can prolong its lifespan and preserve its beauty for years to come.


When it comes to roofing steep-sloped commercial buildings, selecting the right material is essential for ensuring structural integrity, longevity, and aesthetic appeal. Asphalt shingles, metal roofing, slate tiles, clay tiles, and wood shingles/shakes are among the top choices for commercial property owners due to their durability, versatility, and performance. By investing in high-quality roofing materials suited to the specific needs of their building, owners can protect their investment and ensure the long-term success of their commercial ventures.
