Types of Roofing:
TPO Roof: Thermoplastic Polyolefin membranes are single-ply roof membranes made from ethylene propylene rubber. TPO membranes are installed fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted. TPO roofs are heat reflective and energy efficient. They have extraordinary resistance to ultraviolet, ozone, and chemical exposure. Most TPO roofs are Energy Star Compliant and Cool Roof Rating Council Certified..
EPDM Roof: Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer is a rubber material whose main components consist of the compounds ethylene and propylene. This roofing is installed fully adhered, mechanically fastened, or loose laid. EPDM is flexible and resistant to all changes in temperature without peeling or cracking. This roofing is relatively inexpensive and lasts for 12-25 years.
Asphalt Roof: Fiberglass-based shingles are manufactured with a mat composed entirely of glass fibers of multiple lengths and orientations. The fiberglass base is then surfaced with a specially-formulated asphalt coating, followed by weather resistant mineral granules. Asphalt shingles are typically nailed in place. The flexibility and strength of these shingles supports their installation on a wide variety of roof designs. These shingles handle well in extreme temperatures, and in areas where wind, water, and ice are prevalent.
Tile Roof: Roof tiles can be made from natural slate, stone, clay, or concrete. Roof tiles have flat or round profiles and seek to replicate centuries-old roofing materials. Installation consists of laying the tiles on top of underlayment and roof flashings. Tile roofs promote air circulation. They are fire safe, long lasting, and resistant to hail.
Metal Roof: Metal roofs can be made out of aluminum, copper, or coated steel. When installing a metal roof, the textured side of each panel is laid in sequence over the underlayment. These panels are then held in place with fasteners. Metal roofs are fire retardant, durable, and almost maintenance free. They are also energy efficient, as metal reflects heat and blocks its transfer to your home.
Fabricated Metal Roof: Fabricated metal roofs can be made out of aluminum, copper, or coated steel. Panels are shaped, cut, and assembled to produce a custom steep or low slope roof. When installing a fabricated metal roof, the textured side of each panel is laid in sequence over the underlayment. These panels are then held in place with fasteners. Fabricated metal roofs are durable, fire retardant, and almost maintenance free.
Synthetic Roof: Synthetic roofing products are made out of renewable resources that emulate naturally occurring products such as wood shakes, clay tiles, and slate. Installation of synthetic roofing is especially easy, considering the fact that synthetic roofing materials are significantly lighter than the materials they intend to replicate. Synthetic roofing materials create a highly durable roof which is environmentally friendly, weather resistant, and can last twice as long as a conventional roof.
Solar Roof: Solar PV Panels are constructed from a number of solar cells made from semiconductors such as polycrystalline silicon or monocrystalline silicon, both of which exhibit the photovoltaic effect. Solar panel installation can be executed on different types of roofs, and the panels can either be tiled up or flush mounted. Solar panels are eco-friendly, cost effective, and easily installed.
