Commercial Roofing Trends to Watch in 2021
If you have an inspection scheduled for your commercial building’s roof in the New Year, don’t be surprised to see the inspectors using drone technology to better survey your roof. Drone technology enables a commercial roofing company like Farha Roofing to take high-resolution aerial images to analyze your roof. The technology allows us to map, measure, and check for damage while we remain safely on the ground.
Cool roofs are a great option for the hot summers in both Colorado and Kansas. They are built using light-colored materials that absorb and reflect energy from the sun. This allows the roofing system to expand and contract more easily than other roofing materials, lowering the risk of the roof cracking or breaking.

Metal roofing has been around for ages, but the technology that we see as a commercial roofing company continues to improve year-over-year. What was once strictly seen as a material choice for warehouses and factories has been updated and is now a popular choice for commercial building owners in various industries.
Metal roofs are extremely durable and offer long lasting protection for your building. They are a great, low maintenance choice for any commercial property.
Adding solar panels to commercial buildings has become extremely common over the last decade and we expect it only to become more popular in the coming year. Solar panels are the perfect addition for building owners focused on sustainability and their environmental footprint. Solar panels have also been shown to reduce the cost of energy for property owners a great deal.
Green roofs are newer on the scene than the above mentioned roofing styles, but at our commercial roofing company we expect their popularity to soar this year. Green roofs are not only very eco-friendly, helping to absorb rainwater and providing shade to the building, but they are also extremely attractive. The vegetation creates a very unique scene that more and more building owners are coming to appreciate.
If you are a commercial building owner or property manager and a new roof is on mind for 2021, the Farha Roofing team is here for you. Give our team a call today to learn more about the trends discussed above and the services that our commercial roofing company can offer you!
