Frequently Asked Questions about Our Products

Why are flat roofs a smart investment?

If you have your flat roof properly installed by an experienced professional, it should stand you in good stead for at least a quarter of a century. Flat roofs are more stable than standard sloping roofs, they take up less interior space, and they are more cost-effective for many people. They’re also easier—and safer—to inspect.

What are TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) roofing systems?

Thermoplastic polyolefin is an ethylene propylene rubber membrane that has become increasingly popular for roofing. TPO is highly durable and tear-resistant, and it is not made with environmentally hazardous materials. It also reflects heat extremely well, making it one of the most energy-efficient roofing products available today.

What are the benefits of asphalt shingles?

Asphalt shingles are a versatile and affordable roofing material that can be used for many different types of houses, and they’re also available in a wide array of colors and styles. However, they are more vulnerable to sun and mildew damage than other roofing materials, and they tend to require more frequent replacement.

Are wood shingles a good option for my roof?

If you want an attractive and natural-looking roofing material, wood shingles are an excellent choice. They insulate well, and they tend to last for decades without the need for replacement. The drawbacks of wood shingles are that they are flammable, prone to rotting or mold, and require more maintenance than other types of roofs.

When should I have my roof replaced?

The best way to tell whether your roof needs to be replaced, rather than simply repaired, is to talk to an experienced roofing contractor. Common signs that a roof has outlived its natural lifespan include frequent repairs, extensive moisture damage throughout your entire roof, and widespread deterioration.
