Flat Roofs

Modified Bitumen (Torch Down) Roof
Most flat roofs are made of modified bitumen rubber; also known as torch down. The life expectancy and maximum warranty of a modified bitumen rubber flat roof is, typically, 10 years. Modified bitumen is made of a rubber-asphalt mix and is applied by a large open flame, which exposes your building to the inherent, potential danger of combustion during installation.

Self-Adhering Roll Roof
An alternative to modified bitumen is a self-adhering roll flat roof; but, this material does not adhere 100% on vertical seems and does not adhere well to non-flat surfaces, resulting in an increase probability of leaking (but, no chance of fire).

We have a better, safer, energy efficient, and maintenance friendly alternative to a torch down or roll flat roof system – GACO Silicone Reflective Elastomeric.

A GACO flat roof

– Will reflect sunlight
– Can be installed without removing the existing roof

• GAF Liberty SBS Self-Adhering Base/Ply Sheet
• GACO™ Waterproof Flat Roof Coating

Shingles Roof

Traditional roof shingles, installed by a professional roofing contractor, provide a long lasting, quality roofing material at a reasonable price. Many business owners choose asphalt shingles for their commercial properties; from office buildings to apartment complexes.

We work with architectural shingles and 3-tab shingles. Architectural shingles cost a little
more; but, they:
– Are made of thicker material.
– Provide more style options.
– Provide a more distinctive, textured appearance.
– Are rated to resist higher wind speeds.
– Typically carry a 50-year manufacturer warranty.

3-tab shingles cost less than architectural shingles; but, they:
– Are made of thinner material.
– Do not have dimensional, textured appearance.
– Typically carry a 20-year manufacturer warranty.

Shingles Roof Warranties
Name brand shingles, such as GAF, provide long term manufacturer warranties; covering
the actual roof materials. Depending on the shingles and related roofing materials you
select for your roofing project, these warranties range from 20 years to a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

The length of our workmanship warranty, which covers the installation portion of your
roofing project, provides you with peace of mind year after year.

BENEFITS OF REPLACING/RECOATING
There are many reasons to replace or recoat a roof. Most businesses and commercial property owners want a new roof to rejuvenate the look of their building, attract new clients, and/or increase the value of their property.

However, a new roof had additional benefits; it can reduce the cost of heating and cooling, and it can increase the structural integrity of the building.
