Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are the most popular type of residential shingle used today.  The benefits derived from using asphalt shingles include weather resistance, ease of application, low maintenance, and with low cost options. Asphalt shingles can be purchased in several forms including strip shingles, laminated shingles or interlocking shingles. They are the most commonly used type of shingle. They are reinforced with fiberglass or paper and range in durability; typically 30 to 50 years.



Tile comes in a large array of beautiful styles, colors and finishes adding to every home's beauty and styling. There is also a wide selection of carefully blended shades that range from subtle tints to vibrant colors, and wood and slate textures that simulate the natural environment.


Tar and Gravel

Most houses with flat or nearly flat roofs are topped with built-up roofing (commonly referred to as tar & gravel or hot tar), made from layers of asphalt-coated fiberglass roofing over felt. The top layer of asphalt on these roofs is usually embedded with crushed rock or gravel, which serves to hold the roofing material down and protect it from damage from sunlight.  Light-colored gravel also reflects the sun's heat. These roofs can last from 20 to 30 years, depending on the number of felt layers installed and the severity of the weather.



PVC/TPO Single-Ply Membrane roofing has been utilized for over 30 years, and can be installed on any flat or low-pitched roof structure.  Each roof is uniquely designed to fit the specific needs of each project.  Installing Single-Ply Membrane is easy and practically error free.  All the seams and details are mechanically fastened and hot air welded to create a  one-piece water proofing membrane over the entire roof structure. This type of roofing system can be installed with a Class "A" rating for flame resistance, unlike old-fashioned traditional roofing materials. Over 90 percent of Single-Ply Membranes roofing can be installed over existing rooftops eliminating the need for messy tear-offs.  This reduces landfill usage and helps to preserve our natural resources. Single-Ply roofing not only keeps your house or office building leak free, but is pleasing to the eye.


Wood Shakes

Wood shakes and wood shingles are manufactured from western red cedar, cypress, pine and redwood trees. Shakes are split from logs and reshaped by manufacturers for commercial use. They are thicker at the butt end than shingles; generally one or both surfaces are split to obtain a textured effect.  The average life span is approximately 30 - 40 years.
