The Best Roof For your Property…
Cedar Shakes Installation
Cedar Wood shakes and shingles are one of those roofing materials that are chosen by some homeowners for aesthetic reasons, their generous life expectancy, and sometimes because they are required in certain communities. Cedar, the wood shakes or shingles are made from, is a coniferous growing tree, with a color palette dominated by red, light amber, and a honey-brown tones. This makes cedar shake roof installation a vibrant choice backed by material’s resilience, and durability.
- Cedar wood shingles are sawn on both sides, have smooth surfaces, and lay flat one on the other.
- Cedar wood shakes are split / not sawn, have rough surfaces (or face only) and variable thickness. Unless they are tapered, they will not lie in their courses tightly together.
If you’re looking for something unique, the dimension of each cedar shingle is not uniform, so no two cedar shake roofs are identical.
An important aspect of cedar shingles roof installation is its safety. After each shingle is fabricated, cedar is being treated with chemicals / fire retardant. There are also additional chemical treatments and kiln drying process, that result in minimizing moss growth, mildew and fungal decay of cedar roofing.
If you’re contemplating cedar shake shingles installation for the first time, keep in mind that you won’t be just enhancing your home’s exterior features and adding character, this will be a wise investment that increases your property’s value as well.
Asphalt Shingles Installation
Architectural asphalt roof shingles installation (also referred to as dimensional shingles installation) is the most popular type because of their exceptional appeal, and significantly increased longevity, which all comes without the much higher cost of the asphalt shingles counterparts – cedar wood shakes, metal, and slate roofs.
Architectural roof shingles installation on your property adds a third dimension to its appearance, as well as a significantly longer life span, when compared to regular asphalt shingles (3-tab shingles). Some asphalt shingle manufactures even offer lifetime warranty for their top-of-the-line asphalt shingles roof install.
With a huge variety of colors, several shapes, and multi-layering, everyone can find an asphalt shingle that will complement design of the property. This affordable roofing material gives you piece of mind for the next few decades.
The most popular asphalt shingles manufacturer in the US, GAF, fabricates the highest quality asphalt shingles currently available – just give us a call and we’ll bring their product to your doorstep. You won’t be disappointed!
Since the colors of online catalogs depend on the viewer’s screen settings, it’s in your best interest to look at the actual shingle before making final decission.
Slate Tile Roof Installation
Slate tile roof installation is the most expensive type of traditional roofing available. Only some brands of solar shingles, which are slowly growing in popularity, carry higher cost if you count batteries, converters, and other equipment required to complete installation. However, the benefit of solar shingle roof installation is that eventually, you will get you ROI from the sun, with slate tile roof… not so much.
This doesn’t mean that slate tile roof installation has no benefits! It certainly does, for example, properly installed and maintained slate tile roof has a life expectancy of 100 years+, you can’t beat that! There are still standing structures with slate roofs dating way beyond 100 years mark. Not to mention its unique appeal, with a few colors available, which depend on slate quarry it was mined from.
If you’re considering replacing your current roof with a slate one, you need to know that existing roof structure may have to be significantly reinforced (or even rebuilt) to bear the weight of slate tiles. If you’re open for compromises, there are composite / synthetic slate tiles, which have the same look as the quarried slate without its weigh and at a fraction of its cost. The lifespan may vary per manufacturer. Give us a call and ask about synthetic slate tile roof installation.
Metal Roof Installation
Demand for metal roof installation has increased significantly over the recent years. The three main factors behind this increased popularity are safety, durability, and longevity of metal roof installations.
Durability of materials used for the metal roof fabrication, makes the installed product resilient to extreme weather conditions such as heavy rain, hail, snow, and strong winds. Another valuable aspect of having a metal roof is its flame resistance.
Although metal roofs are mostly associated with flat panels and standing seam, various manufacturers provide other metal roofing material shapes. You can find metal roofs with textured surfaces inspired by cedar shakes, clay tiles, and slate. Quite often, you’ll need an experienced eye to distinguish between the metal and the real material it is imitating.
Along the variety of metal roof textures come pallets of colors the property owner can choose from (they may vary significantly between the metal roof manufacturers and depend on texture). Like with every roofing material, before hiring a metal roofing contractor, do your due diligence. Make sure you know all the pros and cons of the metal roof installation over your property.
Low Slope & Flat Roof Installation
Out of a few low slope / flat roof installation types, you may want to ask your roofing contractor to perform, modified bitumen roof installation using a flame torch is probably the most common and least expensive. It involves melting of seams of asphalt based single-ply rolled material to create impermeable membrane.
Due to a high risk of fire, this method should only be used by a professional roofing contractor. For those who’d like to make flat roof installation a DIY project, we recommend using cold-application system, which is an excellent and safe solution. Modified bitumen coating comes in a few, mostly light colors that effectively reflect the sunrays.
Another flat roof type is built-up roof installation, also referred to as BUR. BUR consists of 3 or more alternating layers of water-resistant materials, reinforcing fabric and bitumen (asphalt), covered with stone or gravel. Built-up roofs are significantly heavy, and require sufficiently reinforced supporting roof structure, therefore are mostly used in commercial applications.
The third most common flat roof installation material is rubber membrane, also called EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer). EPDM roof installation is very convenient since the material comes in roles, even 20’ wide. This minimizes or even completely eliminates seams and this means less possible ways for water to get into the building. Thanks to an excellent UV resistance, application of any additional protective coatings is not required.
EPDM’s surface deterioration has an approximate rate of about 1 mil per year, which translates to at least 50 years of performance for 60-mil thick product. There are a few precautions that need to be taken if you build a deck over the EPDM roof – the material will deteriorate if exposed to grease, solvents, oils, and petroleum products – use caution!
