Commercial Roofing 101 – It’s not Just a Roof

It’s just a roof—right? Roofing plays an extremely important role in protecting the building from the elements, but low-slope roofing typically doesn’t get as much attention during design as the other building components. With a wide variety of different roof system types and components used on different building classifications, low-slope roofing design can be especially confusing as it includes decisions that incorporate building design parameters, roof system components, and attachment methods. This presentation will provide the knowledge required to formulate the best design for your next roofing project.
