What is Multi-Family Housing?

Multi-family housing refers to residential property with more than one housing unit. Common examples of multi-family housing include:

  • Apartments: These are buildings with multiple individual units, typically accessed through common hallways or stairwells. Apartments can range in size from studios to multi-bedroom units and can be found in low-rise, mid-rise, or high-rise buildings.
  • Condominiums: Condos are similar to apartments in that they are individual units within a larger building. However, unlike apartments, condos are owned by the individual residents, rather than being rented from a landlord.
  • Duplexes, Triplexes, and Fourplexes: These are buildings with two, three, or four units, respectively. Each unit typically has its own entrance and may have some shared walls with other units.
  • Townhouses: Townhouses are attached row houses that share walls with neighboring units. They typically have two or three floors and may have their own private entrances and small yards.
  • Garden Apartments: These are low-rise apartment buildings with fewer units, often spread out over a larger area with green space in between.

The National Association of Home Builders estimates that over 43 million residences in the U.S. are multi-family, making it a good investment. But just like any other investment, a multi-family property needs to be maintained to help guarantee and increase its value. One of the best ways to maintain your multi-family property is by utilizing the best quality roofing services.

Apartment Roofs

Apartments, or collections of single housing units contained within a building structure, are especially vulnerable when it comes to roofing issues. When apartment buildings are having issues with their roofs, it usually means problems for dozens of tenants. 

Common problems with apartment building roofs include:

  • Structural Damage
  • Missing Shingles
  • Missing or Damaged Flashing (Waterproofing Material)
  • Improperly Sealed Skylights
  • Sagging (Often Caused By Damage or Old Layers Of Roofing)
  • Leaks With Difficult-to-Find Origins  

Roofing contractors can help solve and prevent these problems by providing quality roof servicing. Whether it’s a leak that you can’t quite find the source of or sagging due to weather damage and old material, the roofers near you can help. For apartment building owners who require servicing, contact Thunder Bay Roofing by dialing 410-956-7663


Condominiums, also known as condos, are housing complexes similar in structure to apartments. Unlike apartments, however, the tenant can own the unit, but they don’t own the land. There are often common spaces that tenants own a percentage of jointly. If you need roofing services for a collection of condominiums, Thunder Bay is the best roofer near you for the job. 

We can make sure the condo in question is ready and fit for living by offering services like roofing installation, roofing inspection, and, of course, roof repair and placement. If you have condominiums to maintain, contact Thunder Bay Roofing by dialing 410-956-7663.      

Common Types of Multi-Family Roofing Materials

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are one of the most commonly used roofing materials for multi-family buildings due to their affordability, ease of installation, and versatility. They come in various colors and styles, allowing for customization to match different architectural designs. While asphalt shingles offer decent durability, they may not last as long as some other materials and can be susceptible to damage from severe weather conditions such as strong winds and hail. However, their widespread availability and relatively low cost make them a popular choice for many property owners looking for a budget-friendly roofing option.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing has gained popularity in multi-family buildings for its exceptional longevity and resistance to various elements. Typically made from steel, aluminum, or copper, metal roofs offer a sleek, modern appearance that can enhance the overall aesthetic of a property. 

Additionally, they require minimal maintenance and are highly durable, withstanding extreme weather conditions like heavy rain, snow, and high winds. While the initial cost of metal roofing may be higher compared to other materials, its long lifespan often makes it a cost-effective investment in the long run.

Clay Tiles

Clay tiles are renowned for their classic and timeless appearance, making them a preferred choice of reliable roofing materials for many multi-family buildings trying to achieve a traditional architectural style. These tiles are highly durable and fire-resistant, offering excellent protection against harsh weather conditions and potential fire hazards. 

Their rich earthy tones add warmth and character to the overall aesthetic of a property, making clay tiles a popular choice for those seeking a sophisticated and elegant roofing solution.

Wood Shakes

Wood shakes provide a natural and rustic charm that can enhance the visual appeal of multi-family buildings, particularly in rural or wooded settings. Typically made from cedar, redwood, or pine, wood shakes offer a unique aesthetic characterized by their irregular shapes and textured surfaces. With proper care and maintenance, wood shakes can provide long-lasting beauty and charm to multi-family buildings, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere for residents.

EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)

EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) roofing is a synthetic rubber material commonly used in multi-family buildings for its durability, flexibility, and weather-resistant properties. EPDM roofing membranes are lightweight and easy to install, making them suitable for various multifamily roofing shapes and configurations. 

EPDM roofs offer excellent resistance to UV radiation, ozone, and extreme temperatures, ensuring long-term performance and protection against environmental elements. Their low maintenance requirements and extended lifespan make them a cost-effective choice for many property managers and owners looking for reliable and long-lasting roofing solutions.
