RESIDENTIAL COMPOSITION SHINGLES
Composition Shingles are the most common selection for homes in the United States because of their durability, versatility and quality. Depending on the shingle profile, Composition Shingles have a life expectancy from 20-50 years. The higher the rating the longer your roof will last. These shingles are fiberglass-based.
SIMULATED WOOD / SLATE PRODUCTS
Simulated Wood Tiles duplicate the natural beauty of natural cedar shake yet provide improved performance, protection and durability. In addition to the 40-50 year warranty available with this material, our environmentally conscious customer love the fact that their roofing material did not deplete our limited forests. Manufactured from either recycled rubber and plastic or Polyurethane and a mineral sand filler.
Simulated Slate Tiles offer an environmentally friendly, lightweight alternative to traditional slate roofing products. This product is manufactured from 80% post-industrial recycled rubber and plastic making the installation cost 50% less than quarried slate. Roof systems created with this product traditionally have a 50-year warranty.
This roofing material has a unique blend — the superior performance of steel with the elegance of clean architectural lines. Durable and lightweight, these products requires little to no maintenance and are walkable. Some are manufactured to resemble tile or shake with an acrylic bonded stone coated finish. The life span averages 50 years and is environmentally friendly.
Clay roof tiles are manufactured to withstand harsh climatic conditions and environments. They tend to be non-combustible, long lasting, virtually maintenance free, impervious to insects and rot and resist the effects of freeze-thaw cycles. Clay roof tiles are generally recognized as having the lowest life cycle cost because they can last for hundreds of years.
Concrete tiles are durable through rain, snow, high wind and hail providing years of worry-free performance. Roof systems created with this material can help lower energy costs by reducing heat transfer through air circulation beneath the tile and through concrete’s inherent insulating properties. When you consider that a concrete tile roof will last for the life of the structure, the full life-cycle cost of the roof is quite affordable as compared to other roofing materials.

One of the most important structures of the home is the roof. Small leaks can cause major structural damage. A good rule of thumb is to inspect your roof twice a year to stop damage before it starts. Depending on the style & roof system, waterproofing can be performed in a variety of methods. Ask one of our sales representatives about options available for your home.
Roof coatings can be used to restore metal, asphalt built up, modified bitumen, polyurethane foam, single ply (EPDM, TPO, PVC). Solve annoying roof problems at a fraction of the cost of replacement and avoid the disruption that comes with it. We have solutions for low slope or flat roofs as well as steep slope roofs.
A properly and well insulated home reduces energy costs and does not gain or lose heat as quickly as a poorly-insulated one. Thus it is easier to maintain a comfortable temperature lowering the demand on heating and cooling systems as well as operating costs.
