Composition shingles dominate the residential roofing market. About 85% of homes have composition shingles. They are available in a wide array of colors, and they are relatively inexpensive and easy to repair. They range from low-cost simple 3-tab shingles to elaborately styled, architectural shingles with extra durability. They are fire resistant and many feature upgraded impact resistant qualities. Most of our shingles feature lifetime warranties.
Our expert team can help you with the process of selecting the right type of composition shingles to match your home's style.
Flat and Low Slope
A roof that is level or slightly pitched is referred to as low slope. Composition shingles are not recommended for low slope roofs. Two common roofing materials for residential low slope roofs are modified bitumen and TPO. (Thermoplastic Polyolefin)
Modified bitumen roofing is a roofing asphalt. Materials, such as layers of fiberglass or polyester, are added to the asphalt to add strength to a flat roof. There are a wide range of methods available for installing modified bitumen roofing, from using a hot torch to using sealant backed peel and stick rolls. Modified bitumen roofing has high tensile strength and, in general, has excellent weather resistance.
TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) is a single ply roofing membrane. It is installed in a single membrane application without multiple layers. TPO can be installed using several different methods including mechanically attached, adhered, ballasted and plate bonded. TPO membranes come in a variety of colors but primarily are available in white, grey and tan. Manufacturer warranties are available for installations up to 30 years.
If you are looking for a roof that will give your home the exquisite, modern look coupled with superb durability and longevity, a standing seam metal roof is the perfect system to meet your needs. Standing seam is considered to be the high-end option among all metal roofing systems. It's quite popular among savvy, discerning homeowners who want to invest in a durable and long-lasting, energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly, premium quality roofing system that offers true peace of mind for many decades to come.
Standing seam is a metal roofing system featuring vertical metal panels running from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves. The upturned edge of a metal panel connecting it to the adjacent panel creates a distinctive vertical line known as "standing seam." One distinctive design feature of standing seam is that there are no exposed screws or fasteners, which could become potential sources of leaks. Standing seam design incorporates hidden or concealed fasteners, which is what makes it more watertight than other metal roofing systems. Residential standing seam panels are generally 12 to 19 inches wide. They are typically made out of painted galvanized steel/G-90 steel (zinc-coated steel), Galvalume steel (zinc and aluminum coated alloy steel), or aluminum.
