Types of Roofing
Flat roofing can fall into many categories. The main ones that we install are single ply membranes, coatings, rolled roofing, and low sloped metal roofs. Depending on the roof slope, roof size, and building use is a great place to start when determine what type of roofing system you may need or want on your building. Flat roof warranties will range from 5 Year to 30 Year System Warranties. Please follow the Flat Roofing Link to learn more about flat roofing systems. .
Roof shingles are tiles that interlock and overlap to channel water off of a sloped roof deck. Shingle roofs can be used in low sloped or steep sloped roof constructions but should not be used in flat roof situations. Many common types of shingle roofs are Asphalt, Clay, Metal, Wood, Rubber, and Slate. When looking into shingle roofs you always want to make sure you have proper ventilation and drainage. Please follow the Shingle roof link below to learn more about shingle roofs and their components.
Metal roofs come in many different colors, profiles/styles, and thicknesses but can be categorized into two main categories. The first being exposed fastener where you can see all of the fasteners holding the metal system to the roof structure. The second is a concealed fastener system where no fasteners should be visible on top of the metal system but concealed within the roofing system. Most metal systems cost more than a standard Asphalt Shingle roof but metal is far superior in lifespan and durability over time.

Roof decks can tie into garden roofs to allow for the garden to be observed without being walked through or they can be used to expand outdoor area for relaxing or entertaining. Roof decks can be wood, stone, or rubber. Depending on your roof system, slope, space requirements, and structural support will determine what style/system that someone can pick from.
A roof garden is a garden system on top of a roof system. Roof gardens have many benefits for the owner and for the environment. Roof garden systems can be split into two separate system types. The first most common system is a traditional style garden roof and the second stem is a tray system. Depending on soil depth desired, purpose of the garden, and what the structure can support will determine which system is best to use.
