Asphalt Build-Up Roof Systems
A continuous, semi-flexible multi-ply roof membrane consisting of layers of saturated felts, coated felts, fabrics, or mats, between which alternate layers of bitumen are applied. Built-up roof membranes are typically surfaced with roof aggregate and bitumen, a liquid-applied coating or a granite-surfaced cap sheet.
Modified Bitumen Roof Systems
Composite sheets consisting of a polymer modified bitumen, often reinforced and sometimes surfaced with various types of mats, films, foils and mineral granules.
EPDM Roof Systems
Ethylene-propylene-diene monomer (EPDM) is the ASTM-designated name for an elastomeric single-ply roofing material containing a terpolymer of ethylene, propylene and diene. EPDM is a thermosetting synthetic elastomer – that is, a macromolecular material that returns to its appropriate initial dimensions and shape after substantial deformation by a weak stress and the subsequent release of that stress. EPDM roof systems are black in appearance.
TPO Roof Systems
Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO) is a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene polymers. Colorants, flame retardants, UV absorber and other proprietary substances may be blended with TPO to achieve the desired physical properties. The membrane may or may not be reinforced. Membrane is white/gray in appearance.
PVC Roof Systems
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a synthetic thermoplastic polymer prepared from vinyl chloride. PVC can be compounded into flexible and rigid forms through the use of plasticizers, stabilizers, fillers and other modifiers. Flexible forms are used in the manufacture of sheeting and roof membrane materials. Membrane is typically white in appearance.
Asphalt Shingled Roofs
Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used material on residential roofs in the United States. This type of roofing material is durable and easy to install. There are two grades of asphalt shingles: (1) standard (three-tab), and (2) architectural (laminated or dimensional).
Slate Tile Roofs
Slate is probably the most durable roofing material. In fact, the slate will last forever. It’s only the fasteners that hold the slate to the roofs and the flashings that limit the life of a slate roof. But, if proper fasteners and flashings are used, along with careful installation, these roofs have a life span of at least 100 years.
Synthetic Slate Shingled Roofs
These are created using an engineered polymer specifically formulated for durability and color fastness. They are created by unifying various long-proven plastics, which are double protected against the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
Metal Shingles and Architectural Metal Standing Seam Panels
Primarily thought of as a low-slope roofing material, this has been found to be a roofing alternative for home and building owners with steep-slope roofs. Metal shingles are typically intended to simulate traditional roof coverings, such as wood shakes, shingles and tile. Apart from their longevity, metal shingles are relatively lightweight, have a greater resistance to adverse weather and can be aesthetically pleasing.
We understand the frustration that a leaky roof causes to the building owner, tenants and the day-to-day business in general. You deserve proper service at a reasonable price, so we’ve implemented the following procedures:
- All our service crews are properly trained in leak detection and in proper repair methods
- All repairs are made in the field and before and after photos are taken and processed prior to billing our customers
- Before leaving the roof, our technicians visually inspect the surrounding roof areas—any deficiencies are documented
We repair and provide preventive maintenance services for all types of Commercial, Industrial and Institutional roofing, as well as providing residential roof repair services.
We understand that sometimes a decision must be made about a roof system that is old, outdated, out of warranty and may be deteriorating. For a variety of reasons, the roof system must be made to last a little longer while funding is found for a new roof system. Our staff can show you ways to delay replacement until you’re ready.
The cost of restoration can be a fraction of the cost of re-roofing. Our specially-trained crew will identify and correct major deficiencies in roof systems prior to replacement. This may include coatings, re-flashings and modern design modifications. We work with all types of Commercial, Industrial and Institutional roofing systems.
We have our own sheet metal shop where skilled craftsmen fashion metal materials according to your exact design or needs. We use computerized break-and-sheer technology as well as other modern tools and techniques for perfect accuracy.
Prefinished Metal- This is factory-painted in a vast array of colors, and comes with a 20-year finish warranty.
Galvanized or paintgrip- Standard metals are appropriate when you’re looking for a paintless finish, or when you prefer to handle the painting yourself.
Aluminum- This material can add years to the life of your roof, and is supplied painted or unpainted.
Copper- Boost the visual impact of your building. Copper can be used in a variety of places on your building. A one-of-a-kind custom roof in copper creates a unique and exclusive visual impression.
Stainless Steel- Many conditions can benefit from a custom fabrication using this material, which is also virtually maintenance-free.
Other common fabrications:
Gutter and downspouts- We measure your building carefully onsite and create custom sizes and profiles to add flair and functionality to your roofline.
Collector heads- Unsightly bumps in your building can be transformed into attractive features. A custom-built collector head can turn your plain old wall into a fascinating art piece.
Functional items- Copings, metal wall-flashings, roof edges and AC flashings are sized onsite and programmed into our computer to create a precise fit.
