Roofing Types We Offer:
Asphalt Roofing Shingles
Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing type used on homes today. They are extremely affordable and easy to repair and maintain. Shingles come in a plethora of sizes, styles, colors and shapes so you are sure to find the perfect match for your home.
Metal roofing is a long-lasting and energy efficient choice for your house’s roof. They are very lightweight and maintenance free and are easy to install because they can be placed right over your old shingles. Metal roofs are commonly expected to last about 30 years so you won’t have to worry about the state of your roof.
Slate is one of the most durable materials on the market. Slate roofing can potentially last for hundreds of years if properly maintained and can infinitely be taken apart and put back together for thorough inspections and maintenance. Just be sure your home’s foundation is solid because slate isn’t light.
Wood Shake Roofing
Wood shake is an elegant choice for high-end homes because of the unique look and feel. This roofing style is great for insulation and is wind and hail resistant. If you keep your wood shake maintained and regularly chemical treated against fires, it will provide you many years of aesthetic pleasure.
While typically used for commercial or industrial use, flat roofing can be used for a number of structures. Contrary to their name, flat roofs aren’t completely flat. This is because they need to be angled to let water run off. Flat roofs use a sheet of what is called membrane to make sure they are watertight and repel leakage.
Copper roofing dates back to the Roman Empire, which is a testament to how versatile and long-lasting this material is for y our home’s roof. Copper resists corrosion and extreme weather conditions and requires little maintenance. It is fire resistant and available in a multitude of styles to suit your design and protection needs.
