Cost-saving infrastructure is something every business strives for. With so few ways for a business to help reduce their costs, it is important that roofing companies do their part to help improve these options.

Few businesses will think of their roof as anything other than a roof, but in fact, an industrial flat roof can notably reduce a company’s yearly costs, even helping them become a greener and more eco-friendly company in the meantime. Here’s how:

Cost

We start simply, with the cost. For larger buildings such as warehouses, flat roofs are much more cost effective to install than a traditional sloped roof. This is due to the fact they require less materials, the materials in question are cheaper, and the entire process is much quicker and easier than with sloped roofs.

Commercial solar panels

Commercial roofs – like domestic roofing – can also benefit from the addition of solar panels. These panels are able to harness the energy from sunlight and transfer the energy into useable electricity within the building itself. By being able to harness their own energy, they can greatly reduce their reliance on electric tariffs, reducing their yearly energy costs and in some cases, be able to completely supply their own clean energy. Any unused energy can be sold back into the Grid; giving businesses who produce enough solar energy the chance to not only save money, but to make money too.

Insulation

Properly insulated flat roofing can help reduce the 25% heat loss that occurs from other roofs. Adequate insulation doesn’t just work to keep your building warmer in winter either, adequate insulation can help reduce air-conditioning costs by reducing the amount of heat able to enter through the roof via the sun’s rays.
