There are so many amazing commercial roofing material options for your business. We want to take the time to make sure you are making the best choice for your business and your budget. Here are a few of the most popular options.

Metal Roof

The most durable and longest lasting roof option, metal roofs have unsurpassed reputation for safety and strength. Metal roofs commonly have standing-seam installation, which essentially means vertical seams for the sheet metal panels. Not only do these roofs last longer, but require much less maintenance than traditional roof materials, which greatly reduces the total cost of the roof over its lifecycle.


There are a huge variety of options when it comes to tiles. Not just the size and color, but the composition as well. You have clay tiles, rubber tiles and concrete tiles. Each composition offers unique and dynamic properties for you roof. In San Diego, you are much more likely to see clay tiles, but concrete tiles are more cost effective due to the relative ease that they can be created. Clay tiles need to be created from their relative quarry, so they have shipping costs added.


The nation’s most popular roofing material, asphalt shingles offer a variety of benefits. They are incredibly durable, they are relatively easy to maintain, they help reduce outside noise infiltration, they come in a huge variety of styles, shapes, textures, and colors, and finally, they are very budget friendly.

Foam Roofing

Foam roofing is applied as a liquid, which quickly rises and dries into a solid material. Because it starts as a liquid, it creates a seamless blanket of protection over your entire roof. Our trained professional use custom application techniques to apply more foam to target higher risk areas of your roof to prevent standing water. Foam roofs also have a wonderful energy efficiency rating and can lower your power bill by up to 50%.

Torch Down Roofing (a.k.a. Torch On Roofing)

This is exactly how it sounds. Torch Down Roofing involves using an open flame torch to heat the modified bitumen sheets so they adhere to your roof surface. You can usually have either two or three layer sheets. The major benefit of this material is its ability to expand and contract with the weather. It has a very high tolerance for weather extremes on both sides of the thermostat.
