Types of Residential Roofing
No matter what kind of roof you need, we have it covered for you. Our expert roofers can install all types and kinds of roofs, including:
- Asphalt shingles. These are one of the most common residential roofing materials. They help keep your home waterproof. The asphalt part holds granules in place and, more importantly, provide the shingle with strength. High-quality asphalt shingles will be flexible and remain that way without drying out or becoming brittle.
- Dimensional asphalt shingles. These are basically the same as regular asphalt shingles except that certain areas have more layers of asphalt and granules to provide more texture on your roof. They can be heavier than traditional asphalt roofing and often have longer warranties, up to 30 years.
- EPDM – This rubber roofing material makes for a waterproof roof. It’s quicker and easier to install than many other types of roof, and it can be used in most temperatures. It resists UV damage and weather and does not contribute to water pollution problems.
- Flat roofs – Many businesses have flat roofs rather than sloped ones. We’ll give your roof a slight slope so that water can run off, then cover it with Asphalt, EPDM, PVC, Modified Bitumen, or TPO.
- Metal roof – Some people choose metal roofing for how it looks, while others choose it because it is great in mossy areas with high precipitation. It offers some of the best protection that you can get in a roof, lasts for a long time, and can lower energy usage because it reflects light. Made of steel, aluminum, or copper, a metal roof can last for over 50 years.
- PVC – Polyvinyl chloride roofing, or PVC, is a great option for flat roofs. It is strong, waterproof, and fire resistant. They are energy efficient when light-colored and are often used when people want to plant on the roof.
- Slate – These shingles are stone and can last up to 100 years. They are also very heavy, so we will need to make sure that your frame can hold their weight. They can also be easy to work with, though the finished product often looks like a work of art.
- Stone-coated steel – These roofs combine some of the best characteristics of metal and stone roofs. Consisting of a metal panel coated with acrylic gel, they have stone attached to the outside. They often look like ceramic tiles but can be given almost any look or feel. They are energy efficient and effectively resist wind, fire, and freezing/thawing.
- Green roofs – If you care about saving energy and caring for the planet, there are several green roofing options that we can offer you. Metal or slate roofs add to your home’s energy efficiency and they can last for many years. Metal roofs are also recyclable. If you choose a reflective option, you’ll use less energy, too.
- Tile – Clay – Traditionally, clay tile roofs are done in the Spanish style, though they can also come in several other options. Tile resists harsh weather well and lasts 40-50 years, but it is very heavy. If you choose tile, we will have to make sure the structure of your building can withstand its weight.
- Tile – Concrete – Concrete tiles offer many of the same benefits as clay tiles – they resist harsh weather well and they last a long time. It does come in many more styles than clay tile, too, so you have more choices for what your roof will look like. It’s also heavy, but can be great in areas where all the roofs need to look the same according to an HOA code or other agreement.
- TPO – Thermoplastic polyolefin, or TPO, is a great option for flat roofs. It is incredibly durable and can help make your building more energy efficient. It is designed to withstand extreme temperatures, so you can use it anywhere.
- Wood Shakes – These give your home a natural, even rustic, look. Cedar is the most popular wood for shakes, though many other kinds of wood get used, as well. They are environmentally friendly and can be a great option for historical buildings or neighborhoods with strict appearance standards. Quality shakes will last up to 30 years.
