4 Top Trends in Corporate Roofing

John Maxwell


Well-constructed, high quality roofing never goes out of style, but commercial roofing is always changing as technology improves and designs shift. At Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc., we are always monitoring the top trends in corporate roofing to ensure that our customers get the best products and services.

Here are a few of the latest trends we are seeing in new corporate building roofs:

1. Designer Roofs

While flat, utilitarian roofs are still popular in commercial real estate, more companies are choosing to make a design statement with their new roofs or roof replacements. Metal roofing is becoming a more popular option for businesses. Metal roofs help a building stand out and are also one of the most durable roofing materials. Buildings with steep-sloped roofs can also use traditional materials like asphalt shingles or slate to give the business a more welcoming feel.

2. Eco-Friendly Roofing

More and more businesses are making efforts to go green, and those efforts are starting to extend to rooftops. One growing trend is to build a green roof of soil and vegetation on the roof deck. Green roofs help keep man-made chemicals from draining off buildings into the environment, and they also help prevent buildings from heating up the air around them. Solar roofs are also becoming more popular. Using solar panels, roofs can generate renewable electricity for the building.

3. Energy-Efficient Roofing

With proper insulation and carefully selected materials, the roof can play a big role in a corporate building’s energy efficiency. Cool roofs, which use a lighter color of paint to reflect light away from the buildings, have become a popular way to keep air conditioning use down in a building.

4. New Roofing Materials

Asphalt is no longer the only thing corporate offices consider putting on their rooftops. Metal, rubber, and synthetic materials have all started making their way into the roofing industry. The emergence of new materials lets corporate building owners choose what is most important to their businesses and buildings, whether it’s durability, easy maintenance, or fire-proofing.

Industry Trends

While roofing trends dictate the look and design of new buildings, the industry itself is also changing to better serve their customers’ changing needs. Trends among roofing contractors in the industry include using software to monitor maintenance schedules and are also using new technology like drones to make inspections safer and faster. 

If your company is planning for a new roof in the days ahead, make sure that your commercial roofing company is also up to date on all the industry trends. If you’re ready to get started, contact Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. today! Our team is experienced and ready to help.
