If you think it doesn't matter all that much what color the roof should be, think again. There's a heated debate in the roofing industry as to whether dark roofs or light roofs are the best and most energy efficient for commercial buildings.
Ever since U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced in 2009 that global warming could be more efficiently combated by painting roofs and roadways white, roofers in the United States and Canada have been discussing the color of the roofs they install.
Having a good-quality roof on top of your commercial building is important for a few reasons. It's important to keep your building in good shape and to prevent property damage, plus you could violate certain codes or restrictions in your area by not replacing your roof when it's needed. You are probably also worried about how your business looks to others and about losing business by not having a good-quality roof.
