Roofing

Types of Roofing Performed:

Low Slope Roofing

  • Built Up Roofing - Built up roof membranes, referred to as BUR, have been in use in the U.S. for more than 100 years. These roof systems are commonly referred to as "tar and/ or gravel" roofs. BUR systems generally are composed of alternating layers of bitumen and reinforcing fabrics that create a finished membrane.
  • Modified Bitumen Roofing- Polymer-modified bitumen or modified bitumen sheet membranes were developed in Europe in the early 1960s and have been in use in the U.S. since the mid-1970s. Modified Bitumen roof system membranes are composed of multiple layers, much like BUR membranes. Unlike BUR roof systems, the top or final layer of modified bitumen is a modified cap sheet that may or may not have a granulated coating.
  • EPDM Roofing- Thermoset membranes incorporate principal polymers that are chemically cross linked or vulcanized. One characteristic of true thermoset polymers is once they are cured, they only can be bonded to similar materials with adhesives. The most common thermoset roof membrane is EPDM. EPDM roof membranes can be installed fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted. Most EPDM membranes do not receive surfacing.
  • TPO/ PVC Roofing- Thermoplastic materials are distinguished from thermoset materials in that there is no chemical crosslinking. These membranes can be repeatedly softened by heating or hardened when cooled. Because of the materials' chemical nature, thermoplastic membranes typically are seamed by heat welding with hot air.
  • Spray Polyurethane Roofing - SPF-based roof systems are constructed by mixing and spraying a two-component liquid that forms the base of an adhered roof system. SPF can be installed in various thicknesses to provide slope to drain or meet a specified thermal resistance (R-value). A protective surfacing is then applied to the foam to provide protection from the elements.
  • Cold Applied Coatings - Cold-applied coatings and cements are those that are designed to be used at ambient temperatures, requiring little, if any, heating to facilitate application. Typically, they are comprised of a resin, a carrier solvent, reinforcing fillers, and optional reflective pigments. Upon application, the carrier solvent evaporates from the coating, leaving a cured, water resistant film. Roof coatings and cements are available with a wide range of properties and consistencies to fit a multitude of purposes.

Steep Slope

  • Asphalt Shingles - Asphalt shingles are composed of the following: 1) a base material, either organic felt or glass-fiber mat, that provides support for the weather-resistant components and gives a shingle strength; 2) asphalt and fillers; 3) surfacing material, generally in the form of mineral granules, that provides protection from impact and UV degradation and improves fire resistance. Shingles may be produced in a single layer or two or more layers. The latter generally are known as laminated strip shingles, or architectural shingles, and they have a three dimensional appearance.
  • Clay/ Concrete Tile - Clay tile is produced by baking molded clay into tile. Tiles may be glazed and also may have surface texture treatments applied. As a result, there are a wide variety of tile profiles, styles, finishes and colors available. Concrete tiles are made of portland cement, sand and water in varying proportions. As with clay tile, there are a wide variety of profiles, styles, finishes and colors available. Color may be added to the surface of a tile or dispersed throughout (color through).
  • Metal Panel Roofing Steep Slope - There is three general categories of metal roof systems used for steep-slope roofing applications: architectural metal panel, structural metal panel, and metal shingle/shingle panels. Generally, architectural metal panel roof systems are water shedding and are intended for use on steep slope roofs.
  • Slate - Roofing slate is a dense, durable, naturally occurring material that is essentially nonabsorbent. The color of slate is determined by its chemical and mineral composition. Because these factors differ in various regions, roofing slate can be obtained in a variety of colors. In addition, exposure to weather causes slate to change color.
  • 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.
