Low Slope Roofing

Single-ply Roofing

Single-ply Roofing is classified as flexible sheets of compounded plastic-derived material used to cover and protect flat and low-sloped buildings. Properly installed, single-ply roofing systems offer an inherent advantage over traditional materials due to their strength, flexibility, and high durability.

Built-up Roofing

Built-up Roofing, also called BUR, is the most common roofing material used on low-slope roofs. It is composed of alternating layers of reinforcing fabric and bitumen (asphalt) and is finished with a top layer of aggregate, such as stone or gravel.

Structural Metal Panels

Structural Metal Panels are a durable and long-lasting option for residential roofs. A metal roof can withstand the elements for far longer than an asphalt roof.

Roofing Accessories

Venting

Roof vents allow hot air to escape keeping the roof and attic cooler and saving on energy costs.  Poor or non-existent ventilation may cause attic temperatures to rise to 150 degrees or higher in the summer. That can lead to damaged shingles and other roofing materials, a buildup of condensation and mildew, and mold development. Continuous ridge vents are more effective because they are installed at the peak of a roof’s ridge, allowing warm air to escape from the attic. A continuous vent, as opposed to an individual roof vent, is the most effective.

Protective Insulation

Roof insulation performs two basic functions: Acts as a thermal barrier for the top of the building and serves as the roof system base.

Coatings

Roof coatings serve as a barrier between the elements and your roof. Most of them are waterproof and reflective, which helps protect the roof from leaks and slow down the sun rays’ effects on the roof. Roof coatings also help to reduce the temperature of the roof and protect it from weathering.
