We specialize in all types of residential roofing. The most common residential roof is asphalt shingle roofing. The three main types of asphalt shingles include 3-tab, architectural, and designer.
3-tab shingles, also called strip shingles, are a single laminate shingle. They are the most cost effective shingles on the market. However, they come with the shortest life span. 3-Tab shingles, with a proper roof deck, with give a smoother appearance.
Architectural, laminate, and dimensional shingles are all the same. They are the most common roofing system installed today. They are slightly more expensive than 3-tab shingles but carry much better warranties. An architectural roofing system is also easier to install. When getting a full roof replacement, avoid installing dimensional shingles on slopes less than 4/12.
Designer shingles are the most expensive of the asphalt roofing systems. They can be 4-5 times the cost of architectural roofing systems. They also come with specialized installation guides and require open valleys due to their thickness. These roofing systems come with even more exclusive warranties and can get you better insurance rates. Although these luxury asphalt roofing systems come at a premium, the curb appeal and life span make them worth the up front money.
Metal roofing systems are another residential roofing option. We install two types of systems. Standing seam metal roofs and Low Ribbed metal roofs.
Standing seam metal roofing panels are attached with concealed fasteners. Standing seam panels are often installed with clips, but there are panels that are nailed down. Nonetheless, there are no exposed fasteners in a properly installed standing seam metal roofing system. We currently install snaplock standing seam systems. We offer a 1" rib and an 1.5" rib in a variety of colors.
Residential low rib roofing systems are another metal option that we offer. These are often referred to as Ag Panels or E-Panels. Low ribbed panels can offer a full roof installation over an existing shingle roof. This can sometime save the homeowner money. Low ribbed metal roofing is great solution for roofing sheds and barns as the panels can span spaces up to 24".
