1 Commercial Roof Systems We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us. -Winston Churchill

2 Commercial Roof Systems Commercial Roof Shapes Pitched Roof Systems Roofing Materials for Pitched Roofs Low-Slope Roof Systems Roofing Material for Low-Slope Roofs

3 Commercial Roof Shapes ShedGableHipGable with Dormer Low-slope Gable & ValleyHip & ValleyGambrel Roofs for small commercial buildings can be similar to residential pitched roof shapes. Low-slope roofs (not completely flat) are common in large commercial construction.
