Materials

Standing Seam Slate

Standing seam slate is a roofing material consisting of large, flat pieces of slate installed in rows. It’s typically used for commercial roofing applications because it is durable and easy to install.

  • Composed of a series of interlocking panels that are secured together with fasteners.
  • Made from a variety of slate, including metamorphic and sedimentary stone. 
  • Provides superior protection against wind and water damage, and it’s also very durable.

Stand Seam Metal

A stand seam metal roof is a type of roofing system composed of interlocking metal panels that fit together snugly. They’re a popular choice for commercial and residential properties.

  • Commonly made from aluminum or steel.
  • The design helps to prevent water and snow from penetrating the roof.
  •  Ideal for areas that experience severe weather conditions.

Shingle Roofing

Shingle roofing is a type of roofing that uses individual pieces of material, called shingles, to cover the roof’s surface. They can be installed in various patterns, and each shingle is usually overlapping the one below it. 

  • It can be made of slate, asbestos, fiberglass, asphalt, and metal (G90 galvanized steel and aluminum)
  • Easy to install and repair
  • Ideal for moderate climates

Synthetic Slate and Shake

Synthetic Slate and Shake are two types of roofing material designed to mimic the look of natural slate and wood shake. Synthetic slate is often used on historic buildings because it can replicate the look of natural slate without the weight or cost. Shake is often used on cottage-style homes because it gives the roof a rustic look. 

  • Made from a blend of plastic, rubber, and recycled fibers
  • Synthetic slate is available in a variety of colors, while synthetic shake is typically darker in color
  • Both materials are lightweight and easy to install

    Types of metal roofing

    Metal Roofing has undergone an increase in popularity over the last 10 years in the United States due to its combination of longevity, energy efficiency, and the minimal maintenance needed after installation.

    While the initial cost of a metal roof may seem higher than traditional asphalt shingles, the investment pays off as metals roofs typically have an estimated lifespan of 40-70 years (2 times longer than shingle roofing), and are produced in a variety of metals (Tin, Aluminum, Zinc, Copper, & Galvanized Steel), and styles depending on your specific needs.

    Zinc: used in metal roofing because of its resistance to corrosion, malleability and stylish look. However, it is mostly used as a component in various other metal alloy roofs.

    Copper: The most expensive option for a metal roof, Copper roofing is known for its durability as they are known to last up to 100 years with minimal upkeep required. Copper roofs provide increased protection from fires, and age beautifully as it develops its famous patina color.

    Aluminum: fractionally more expensive than steel roofing, aluminum provides a plethora of benefits that steel does not. Aluminum Roofs are lightweight, durable, resistant to corrosion, and is energy efficient.

    Tin: while no longer suited for residential homes because of its high rate of corrosion, rust, and susceptibility to dents, Tin is a lightweight, and cheap material to use for storage roofing.

    Iron: Still constructed and used to this day, Iron roofing is manufactured either using an inverted box rib style roofing, or using corrugated galvanized iron
    inverted Box Rib: This style of iron roofing is cheap, and comes in corrugated square sheets. This style of roofing is best used on storage structures that do not require insulation.

    Corrugated Galvanized Iron: This style of Iron Roofing is created by coating iron panels with steel to increase its durability. This material is perfect for providing cheap cover for sheds and barns, however watch out as these panels are subject to fast acting corrosion.

    Steel: Stainless steel is the most common metal used in residential roofing for its combination of durability and affordability. Like iron roofing, Steel roofing comes in a multitude of different variations depending on what the customer is looking for. Unlike Iron, Steel roofing is incredibly resistant to rust, and is dent resistant.

    Galvanized Steel: Steel roofing that has had a coat of Zinc applied to its surface, helping the steel fight against corrosion.

    Galvalume Steel: This style of steel roofing consists of steel panels that are coated with an aluminum surface. Available in a variety of colors and patterns, Galvalume Steel is considered one of the best types of metal roofing to invest in, as the material is known for its longevity and strength against corrosion and rust.

    Stone Coated Steel: this style of steel paneling consists of steel that has been coated in an aluminum/zinc coating, AND has a layer of ceramic-coated stone granules on top of it. This style of roofing is extremely stylish and strong, coming in a wide variety of colors and designs. This roofing material is often times used to recreate a “Victorian” style look that old homes possess.
