Residential Roofing Systems
Each residential roofing material has its best uses, strengths, and benefits. Our roofing consultants are knowledgeable about all and will help you choose the best option for your home, to match your budget, and maintain the integrity of your home’s design.
The three main roof slopes that determine the material used are flat roofs (no slope or a very slight slope), low slope, and steep slope.
The listed steep slope roofing products are installed residentially as well as commercial steep slope materials we install:
The most commonly used steep slope residential roofing material used in the United States. Asphalt shingles vary in quality and are produced by multiple manufacturers. We install only _________ asphalt shingles because of the unmatched quality and warranty.
The inspiration for modern day asphalt shingles, wood shake shingles overlap each other, making the roof or siding weather proof. Made from rot-resistant cedar, the shake shingles we use are treated to offer greater fire resistance. Wood shake shingles often need more maintenance than newer asphalt or fiberglass shingles. Despite this fact, wood shake is sometimes chosen for the unique natural, or rustic look they provide.
Created out of a sedimentary rock, which is split into thin sheets that are ideal for roofing shingles. Again, Slate is sometimes chosen for the aesthetic it offers for certain home styles.
There are many different types of metal roofing systems available, from zinc to steel, copper, aluminum, and tin. In this category of roofing materials are Architectural Standing Seam Metal
One of the most expensive roofing material choices, traditional clay tile is probably the most common based on historic value and aesthetics. Other materials that are used to create tile roofing products are metal, concrete, slate, and various synthetic compositions
Membrane roofing products are used on flat roofs. These include: modified bitumen, thermoplastic membrane, EPDM, single ply, TPO, CPA, CPE, and NBP.
For centuries, copper has been trusted to withstand the elements while weathering beautifully. Copper roofs can complement just about any architectural style while serving as an economical roofing solution. Copper roofing is easy to maintain and works well with even irregular roof structures.
Standing seam metal roofing systems can be divided into two basic categories: structural and architectural. Both roof systems can be installed over a large variety of substrates. Architectural roof panel systems are intended for use on steep slope applications, generally 3:12 or greater. Architectural metal roof systems require a solid substrate to support the panels. Architectural panels can either be mechanically seamed or “snapped together,” depending on the panel’s design.
*Warranties on most residential applications are material. As a certified installer of a particular roofing assembly, the warranty will cover labor and material up a specified duration dependent on the manufacturer. Some warranties may also only cover material to a specified amount of time known as a limited warranty.
