In contrast to a steep slope roof (4/12 pitch or higher), a flat roof is horizontal or nearly horizontal. Materials that cover these roofs are specifically designed to shed water from a very slight inclination or totally flat surface. Asphalt shingles are not appropriate for low slope roofs. Although some contractors install them, they are not designed for low slopes and most manufacturers will not provide a warranty for such an application.
Today's consumers want to invest in a roofing product that is durable, can withstand extreme weather conditions, and will increase the value of your property. Metal roofing systems are strong, long lasting, reliable, and maintenance free. They come in a variety of colors and profiles and will add a distinct and unique look to your home.
Typically, low slope metal roof systems vary in weight from 40 to 135 pounds per 100 square feet, making them among the lightest roofing products available. A lightweight roofing system places fewer demands on a building's structural support system and have a significant life expectancy.
We will install a custom metal roofing package that is cut specifically for your home. From the custom cut panels to the flashing details, all the material on your roof will be manufactured to fit precisely.
The Class A Fire Rating of a metal roof is perfect if you back onto a green belt or live in a heavily treed area, not to mention that the metal is 100% recyclable. You just can't get a better roof.
Thermoplastic single-ply roofing membranes are among the fastest growing roofing products for flat and low slope applications. They have gained broad industry acceptance for their many performance and installation advantages.
As demand increases for heat-reflective and energy efficient roofing systems, thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) single-ply roofing membranes continue to provide exceptional resistance to ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure.
TPO single-ply membrane systems have been engineered to provide premium performance at a very cost-effective price.
Standing, or ponding water on a flat roof structure is a common problem. The difficulty is that most flat roof systems are made from asphalt products, which break down as a result of the standing water. TPO is a roofing system that is not adversely affected by the standing water and is an excellent choice in this situation. The addition of roof drains or scuppers also aids to alleviate the ponding and alternatively, this problem may also be corrected by installing a tapered insulation system.
The single-ply roof systems we install require contractor certification through the manufacturer and offer limited lifetime, and transferrable warranties. The installation process is very safe as the TPO seams are hot-air welded and the membrane is mechanically attached to the substrate. It is an odor free application with no use of open flame whatsoever.
