New Roofs

A new roof is a roof that is installed on new construction, such as: new houses, town houses, sheds & outbuildings and commercial buildings.


Shingles

Roofing shingles are manufactured from various materials, such as: asphalt, slate and wood. 'Artificial'shingles are, also available, as slate and shake shingles.


We install all types of shingles. Our specialty is architectural (dimensional) style shingles.


They are comprised of a fiber glass base that is sandwiched between a water proofing asphalt layer with fillers for stabilization.


The weather-side of our shingles are covered with opaque granules. The granules protect the shingles from damage from the harmfull ultraviolet rays of the sun. Some granules have a ceramic color coating for decorative purposes.


All of the shingles that we use have a layer of material that helps them resist algae growth.


If a customer insists on having 3-tab style shingles, we will comply. However, we always attempt to convert them to sel-ecting the architectural style by showing them examples of the two styles and pointing out the broad range of a colors and shading that are available for the architectural shingles.


We, also, explain that even though the cost of eiter shingle style is about the same, installinga 3-tab shingled roof will cost more than an architectural shingle roof, because of the additional amount of labor that's required to install them.


All customers who selected architectural style shingles appreciated our expertise in guiding them with their decision.


Warranty Information

We will give you a copy of the manufactuers' literature describing their warranty on the material that we are proposing to install and answer any questions that you may have


In addition to the manufacturer's war-ranty, we provide a free warrranty on our workmanship thatthat covers all repairs that may needed during a three year period after installation.


Membrane Roofs

Membrane roofs are typically installed on low slope roof decks (2/12 pitch or less) and other roofs where shingles should not be installed.


There are several kinds of single-ply, membrane roofing materials in use; however, our preference for this area is EPDM 'rubber'. Unless otherwise requested, we install 60 mil thick EPDM.


EPDM is a non-reinforced material. A polyester scrim reinforced material is available. EPDM is available in black and white colors.


When EPDM is installed on a properly prepared roof deck, it provides a trouble free roof for years, if care is taken to prevent the material from being com-promise by people walking on it or from foreign objects falling on it. Even so, it's relatively easy to effect repairs using tape, patches of EPDM and sealants.


An EPDM roof is cost effective, when compared with other single-ply roofing materials.


Roof-Overs

A roof that is installed over an existing roof is called a roof-over. People often request them,because they are less expensive to install than a re-roof.


However, we do not quote or install roof-overs. The reason for that is that the condition of the of the existing roof system can not be establised, which exposes us to our being held liable for roof problems that may occur later due to those unknowns.


Also, we would not be able to provide a warranty for the replacement roof, which would not be in the customer's best interest.


Metal Roofs

Metal roofs are very popular, because of their longevity and the relatively low maintenance requirement.


Metal roofing material is quite versatile and can be installed on steep or low sloped conventional or complex roofs.


Modern metal roofing material consists of custom cut, baked enamel coated aluminum or steel panel sections or strips. They have a smooth, textured finish or pre-formed to look like conventional shingles or clay tiles. And, they are available in many popular colors, as well as, traditional, unfinished metal panels,including copper.


Primarily, because of their cost,metal roofs were installed on commercial or out-buildings. Now, the price of a metal roof is about 67% more than an asphalt shingle roof.
