Steep Slope Roofing
What is Steep Slope Roofing?
Steep slope roofing is the most common type of roofing in the residential roofing field. There are many options to consider when choosing a product to install on your steep sloped roof. The most common product is an asphalt/fiberglass shingle. There are many different colors, styles and manufacturers to choose from. Whatever style or color you choose, our knowledgeable roofing contractors can provide a quality, professional installation.
Steep Slope Roofing Installation Procedure
The first thing we do when starting any roof project is to protect the building from damage using tarps or plywood to make sure none of your property gets damaged during construction.
Next the existing roof is tore off and the decking is inspected to ensure a proper surface to accept the shingles. We then install an appropriate drip edge, an ice & water barrier and felt paper. The shingles are installed and any ventilation concerns are addressed.
This is an aspect of the job that we take pride in. When the installation is complete we will leave your property as clean or in many cases cleaner than before we started.

What are the Benefits of Metal Roofing?
Longer Lifetime - Metal roofs can last 40-70 years, depending on the type of metal used. That is more that two to three times as long as traditional roofing material typically lasts. They can also hold up again strong winds, do not corrode, and depending on the material can resist impact.
Less Maintenance - Metal roofs don't need the periodic costly maintenance that other roofing materials usually require for upkeep.
Increased Energy Efficiency - Metal roofs reflect solar radiant heat, which can reduce cooling costs by 10-25%.
Environmentally Friendly - Metal roofs can have up to 95% recycled content, depending on the material used, and are 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof.
