The Best Roofing Material For You
We protect your investment by using only top-quality materials fitted to the correct specifications by experienced installers. Our knowledgeable team will provide recommendations and help you create a roofing system that will last.
This is the most popular roofing material in the United States. Roofing felt saturated with asphalt, coated on the weather side with a harder asphalt and aggregate particles, and cut into shingles for application to a sloped roof.
A metal roof is a roofing system made from metal pieces or tiles. The two most common forms are corrugated panels and standing seam. In the United States, metal roofing comprises 10% of the overall residential re-roofing market.
Slate is the most durable and longest lasting roofing material ever used. A slate roof will last over 100 years due to the fact that it is natural stone. There are also many other versions of synthetic slates available to achieve the same looks at a fraction of the cost.
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States and worldwide. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas.
TPO Roofing Systems. Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) single-ply roofing membranes are among the fastest growing commercial roofing products and have gained broad industry acceptance for their many performance and installation advantages.
PVC roofing is one kind of single ply roofing, which means it consists of one layer manufactured in a factory. A PVC roofing membrane is made of thick, flexible UV-resistant thermoplastic material; it may also contain polyester or fiberglass, resins, pigments, plasticizers and other chemicals.
Built up roof membranes, referred to by the acronym BUR, have been in use in the U.S. for more than 100 years. These roof systems are commonly referred to as "tar and gravel" roofs. BUR systems generally are composed of alternating layers of bitumen and reinforcing fabrics that create a finished membrane.
A heavy roofing material employing multiple layers of asphalt and reinforcers around a core of plastic or rubber modifiers. Installed with a special torching apparatus, a cold adhesive or hot mopped into place using methods of asphalt application.
Even the smallest roof leaks can lead to the largest problems if not taken care of right away. Collapsed ceilings, rotted framing, and mold are just a few of homeowners biggest fears. Many times when a roof is not installed correctly, water will find its way in. Not all cases require a full roof replacement; sometimes just a minor fix is all your roof needs to keep water out. Our experienced repairmen know how to take care of your roof problems and get more lifespan out of your existing roof.
Skylights and Sun Tunnels
Some of the best ways to brighten up any room in your house is to bring in natural light. Skylights and sun tunnels allow you to do exactly this in areas might be restricted to access or to keep some privacy. There are also a wide variety of options available to customize the kind of skylight going in. Since the average life expectancy of skylights is right around 20 years, it is wise to consider replacing them along with the roof. Our roofers replace and install skylights every week and can provide you with the peace of mind that they will not leak.
The key to maintaining warranty and prolonging your roof life is to take care of the attic as well. Your attic space should be kept as cool as possible yearlong. This prevents ice dams and mold from occurring on your roof. Adding insulation will keep the heat in your home in the winter, and the heat out in the summer. Extra steps to increase airflow in the attic and push warm moist air out are required on most older homes as well.
