Our roofing contractors install, repair and replace the following, most common types of roofs:
Metal roofing – referencing to aluminum or copper is typically used in areas above normal snow conditions and are much more expensive than the conventional roofs. They are made in a multiple array of colors and are maintenance free for life.
Rubber roofs come in two different types – the tapered system or the flat roof. A standard rubber roof has a half inch board that is mechanically fastened to the roof deck by either plates or screws. The rubber is adhered to the board with a bonding adhesive and the seams are taped together with seam tape. All junction points are covered with anchore tape or cover tape. The purpose of the tapered system is to shed water off the roof toward a desired location. This is done with Poly ISO Board (Polyisocyaanurate).
Wood roofs are typically made of red or white cedar shakes. The installation of a wood roof takes about three to four times longer and needs to be maintained to maximize its life potential. They also must be treated with an oil decking stain every 2-5 years depending on geography and sunlight exposure.
Shingle roofs are the most common type. These days you can choose among over 20 types of shingles. The most common shingle type is Architectural Shingle. It comes in a 30, 40 and 50 year shingle. It’s the weight of the shingle that determines the number of years of warranty associated with it.
