roofingResidential roofing refers to all roofing services that cover structures intended for residential use, especially houses.

A residential roofing contractor is recommended for homeowners who want to repair or replace their roof. Here are a few things you need to know.

The Difference Between Residential Roofing and Commercial Roofing

Residential roofing systems are intended for residential properties or homes. Meanwhile, commercial roofing is intended for structures used in trade or retail.

Commercial roofing can be used to cover places such as public buildings, as well as shopping malls. Aside from their intended purpose, they also have other distinct differences:


Commercial structures such as shopping malls are typically larger than residential homes in terms of area. Commercial roofs need to be able to handle the extra weight and size of commercial structures. Residential roofing systems, on the other hand, are often pitched at a steeper slope.


Roofs for residential and commercial buildings must be constructed of durable materials that can withstand extreme weather. These are some of the options available:

  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Solar shingles
  • Asphalt shingles

Commercial roofing and residential roofing have differences. It includes features like air conditioning and ventilation. These should be taken into account when selecting the appropriate roofing material.

Roof Maintenance

Since they’re much smaller, residential roofing systems are much easier to clean and maintain compared to commercial ones. Because of their small size, roof inspection for storm damage is easy.

Different types of residential roof

Each residential structure is unique. It’s therefore important to understand the different residential roofing systems and their characteristics, as well as which one would best suit your home.


Because they are easy to install, asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material. They are extremely durable and have a lifespan of approximately 15 to 20 year. You can also choose from a variety of styles and colors.


Homeowners who are concerned about hurricane season should consider metal roofing systems. This is especially true if they live in an area that is prone to severe weather like Texas.

Metal roofing systems must pass rigorous wind and uplift testing that includes simulated winds speeds of over 150 miles an hour. Metal roofs can also resist fire, so if you have one, you might be eligible to lower homeowner’s insurance premiums.


Tile roofs are known for their durability. Tile roofs that are properly installed can withstand hail, wind, and rain. They are also fire-resistant, just like metal roofs. Additionally, they can reduce energy costs by reducing heat transfer through the air that circulates under the tiles. They are available in many colors, just like shingles.
