Steel Roofs

Steel Roofs are quickly becoming a staple in the roofing industry. There are two primary coating advancements that have enabled steel roof products to excel. As mentioned in the aluminum section, specialized paint finishes have now been proven to be very reliable. Stone coated steel is another technology that has been around long enough to earn our trust. with this introduction, steel can be formed and colored to give a extremely deep and rich appearance that can drastically increase the resale value of any home.

Hand Nails vs. Pneumatic Nails

Many companies advertise that they “hand nail only”, but may only doing so because of economics. These companies may hire new, inexperienced crews and supply them with hammers simply because it’s cheaper and there is little or no training involved.

Hand nails are a little slower, so a crewmember may be a little more watchful of nail placement. As long as the crew is experienced, one is not necessarily better than the other. In the hands of a professional, pneumatic nail guns are faster, more convenient, and shoot the same galvanized nail as is used in hand nailing. Because the guns have a safety function that only allows them to fire if held flat on the surface, nails cannot be installed at an angle. The wires that connect the coils of nails provide a built-in barb on each nail that increases the holding power.

Which Do We Prefer?

We allow our technicians to choose which method they prefer. Along with the shingle manufactures, we believe roofs can be properly installed either way. One final note regarding fastening – staples are often used in new construction and re-roofing to attach shingles. We feel very strongly that staples should not be used for shingle application and you will never find one of our jobs where they have been used.

Standing Seam Metal

Standing Seam Metal

Valleys are extremely vulnerable to leaks because of the speed and high volume of water that they must channel. This is especially true in situations where two roof angles have different pitches and in the case of a “dead valley” where the angle of slope flattens out or has to change directions. Valleys require special care to ensure their watertight integrity. Valley systems combined with thick exotic ridge rows define and outline the roof, adding to the aesthetic value of the roof line. Proper detail and attention to the functionality and attractiveness of these areas increase your home’s resale value.

Open “W” Metal Valley Systems

We particularly recommend open “W” metal valleys that prevent water from washing over and underneath the opposite side of the valley. They wash themselves clean and are less likely than closed valleys to collect leaf and tree debris. Open “W” valleys are made with 30-inch galvalume metal. Their pre-baked enamel finish will not chip, crack or rust like galvanized valleys and the “W” shape expands and contracts on bends which prevents cracks.

Slate Roofs

Slate Roofs are in a category by them selves. Dramatic and elegant, slate roofs have been used for centuries to protect and beautify the more distinguished homes. ranging in color from soft sea greens to brilliant reds few products can match its style and performance. With a true life expectancy of 100+ years, good quality is obviously a once in a lifetime choice.

Tile Roofs

Tile Roofs come in hundreds of unique styles and colors. They can resemble the more traditional barreled style or be made to look a lot like wood shingles or slate. Clay or concrete tiles can last a lifetime and can beautifully enhance the curb appeal of a home. New advancements have allowed tiles to be made lighter, however as a whole they are heavier then most other roofing products. It is important to ensure the roof structure has been designed appropriately to handle the weight if this is your product of choice.

Composition Shingles

3-Tab Shingles

3-Tab Shingles are designed to be an economical solution when installing a new roof. This shingle style usually come with a 20-25 yr manufactures warranty, and range in weight from 190-240 lb per 100 sq. ft. The advantage of this shingle type is in its price, the disadvantage lies in its overall wind resistance and aesthetic appearance. The design has a very flat appearance and can telegraph decking imperfections making them much more noticeable.

Laminated Shingles

Laminated Shingles are designed to resemble wood shingles. If appearance is an influential factor in addition to function, these value-added shingles have a number of different looks and color blends giving the roof a “layered” look. These shingles generally come with a 25-50 yr. manufactures warranty and weigh between 230-360 lbs per square. These laminated shingles weigh more and are stronger than economy shingles and, as a result offer a greater degree of wind, tear and blow-off resistance in addition to greater and longer warranties. Most are available with fungus resistance.

Designer Shingles

Designer Shingles are the ‘flagship” shingles of their respective manufactures. Each is unique in appearance and design to give a specific look while out performing other standard shingles. Most of the manufactures have designed different styles to emulate natural products like wood shingles, slate and tile, while others have unique styles of their own. These products come with 40 yr to lifetime warranties.

While the initial investment may be a little more than standard shingles, the increased resale value and overall aesthetic appearance of the home can easily justify the expense.
