Commercial Roofing Basics

By Stacy Mellete

As a business owner, you have a lot on your plate. The last thing you need is the headache and expense of roof problems. That is why installing a quality roofing system is a top priority. A properly installed roof can protect your business and save you money.

Here at Affordable Roofing Systems, we are committed to installing the best commercial roofs for our clients. Our team of professional roofers in Tampa uses high-quality materials to ensure your roofing system lasts longer so your business can thrive.

Commercial roofing uses stronger, more durable materials than residential roofing. While asphalt shingles are suitable for residential roofs, we have a greater range of materials to meet the needs of commercial clients. We will work with you to determine which materials will best fit your business needs.

Our Roofing Solutions

Your roof has an important job to do to keep your home dry, but it can also be an impressive home feature.


Our stone coated steel roofing system is available in a wide range of styles including Tile, Shake, Slate, and Shingle, and in a variety of colors. We’ll help you to choose one that will fit your home’s style and your budget.


As the most-used roofing type across North America, asphalt strikes a balance between price and durability, with a life expectancy of up to 20. Shingles are available for those who want affordable, genuine slate roofing.


Tile roofs offer unparalleled value when cost per year of use is factored in. While upfront costs are higher, customers who choose a clay or concrete tile roof will enjoy the aesthetics and quality for a lifetime.


Metal roofs today come in a wide array of colors and finishes. Innovations in metal roofing technology have significantly enhanced the performance of metal roofs.

TPO Membrane

TPO can be installed to any scale with some of the world’s largest building utilizing TPO roofing systems – it comes in strips typically 8ft 10ft and 12ft wide that are heat welded on site.
