High-Quality Roof Materials

Many different materials can be used to create a roof. The material that is right for your home will depend on the style of your property, the local climate, your style, and your budget.

Some of the most common types of materials used to create a roof include:

  • Asphalt shinglesAsphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing material used on local residential roofs. Asphalt shingles are cheaper and easier to install but are not as long-lasting as other roofing materials. They come in various colors and can be installed on virtually any style or slope of the roof.
  • Metal roofs: Metal is becoming more popular and is a good option for durability. Metal can be painted in any color to fit the style of your home. However, it is more expensive to install but has a longer lifespan than asphalt shingles. 
  • Commercial roofing materials: Our team installs EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer), single-ply (for low slope roofs), and rubber on commercial properties. These materials offer superior protection for your employees and any expensive equipment needed to effectively run your business. 
  • Flat roofs: Flat roofs are popular for homes and businesses alike. However, they require special procedures and materials to ensure proper waterproofing and prevent leaks.
