Tile Roof

  • Roof tiles are designed mainly to keep out rain and are traditionally made from locally available materials such as terracotta or slate. Modern materials such as concrete and plastic are also used and some clay tiles have a waterproof glaze.
  • Roof tiles are 'hung' from the framework of a roof by fixing them with nails. The tiles are usually hung in parallel rows, with each row overlapping the row below it to exclude rainwater and to cover the nails that hold the row below. 
  • Slate roof tiles were traditional in some areas near of supply, and gave thin and light tiles when the slate was split into its natural layers. It is no longer a cheap material, however is now less common. 

Flat Roof

  • A flat is a roof which is almost level in contrast to the many types of sloped roof. The sloped roof is properly known as its pitch and flat roofs have up to approximately 10 °. Flat roofs are an ancient form mostly used in arid climates and allow the roof space to be used as a living space or a living roof. The National Roofing Contractors Association defines a low-slope roof as having a slope of 3-in-12 or less. In warmer climates, where there is less rainfall and freezing is unlikely to occur many roof are simply built of masonry or concrete and this is good at keeping out the heat of the sun and cheap and easy to build where timber is not readily available. 
  • In such areas, single-ply roofing is one of the best roofing options as single-ply membrane is best suited for all types of weather. 

Asphalt Shingle Roof

  • A asphalt shingle is a type of wall or roof shingles that uses asphalt for waterproofing. There are one of the most widely used roofing covers in North America because they have a relatively inexpensive up-front cost and are fairly simple to install. Two types of base materials are used to make asphalt shingles: A formerly-living organic base and fiberglass base. 
  • The top surface granules block ultra-violet light which causes the shingles to deteriorate, provides some physical protection of the asphalt and gives the shingles their color. Some shingles have copper or other materials added to the surface to help prevent algae growth. 
  • Self-sealing strips are standard on shingles are standard to help prevent the shingles from being blown off by high winds. 
  • Some manufactures use a fabric backing known as a "scrim" on the back side of shingles to make them more impact resistant. 

Gable Roof

  • A gable roof is the classic, most commonly occurring roof shape in those parts of the world with cold or temperature climates. It consists of two roof sections sloping in opposite directions and placed such that the highest, horizontal edges meet to form the roof ridge. The design of this type of roof is achieved using rafters, roof trusses or purlins. The pitch of the roof and the height of the gutters can vary greatly. 
  • Some advantages of Gable roofs include: inexpensive, designed in many different ways, based on a simple design principle, very weather-resistance, and be constructed in an environmentally way through the use of natural materials. 
  • Gables roofs will also shed water and snow, provide more space for the attic or vaulted ceilings and allow more ventilation. Their simple design makes them easier to build and cheaper than more complex designs.

Hip Roof

  • A type of roof where all sides slope downwards to the walls, usually with a fairly gentle slope. A hip roof on a rectangular plan has four faces, they are almost the same pitch or slope, which makes them symmetrical about the centerlines. Hip Roofs have a consistent level of fascia, meaning that a gutter can be fitted all around. 
  • Hip roofs require more complex systems of rafters or trusses and  can be constructed on a variety of plan shapes. 
  • Hip roofs have the advantage of giving a compact, solid appearance to a structure. It is self-bracing, requiring less diagonal bracing than a gable roof. Hip Roofs are thus, much better suited for hurricane regions. They also have no large, flat, or slab-sided ends to catch wind and are inherently much more stable. 

Roof Installation Procedure

We use the newest technology for roofing and nails, Sure Nail Technology. You can learn more about this new approach to roof replacement via google or Youtube. After the new roof is installed, the city will send an inspector to come back and ensure that the job was completed properly. Then, the inspector will issue a final permit and once the workers are finished, they will make sure to not leave any trash/debris behind.
