For example, commercial roofs may be made of rubber, asphalt, or metal, while residential roofs are usually made of shingles. Commercial roofs may also have features that are not usually found on residential roofs, such as drains and skylights. commercial roofs are typically installed by commercial roofing contractors who have experience with this type of roofing.
