Standing Seam Steel Roofs
Standing seam is a particular type of metal roofing. Not only is the material different, but the size, shape, and installation method is different too. A structural standing seam roof panel system meets performance goals by being constructed with a raised portion where the two panels meet, enhancing overall weather resistance. In addition, the panels interlock in such a way that allows thermal movement without damage.
The standing seam metal roof has clean, sleek lines, a minimum of exposed fasteners for a unique aesthetic effect, and can be painted any color, including colors on the lighter end of the spectrum, which will prevent solar heat gain. They are also a highly sustainable choice since they are manufactured using recycled content.
Asphalt Roofing Shingles
Asphalt roofing shingles are the most commonly used covering on residential properties in the market. Asphalt’s primary purpose in roofing shingles is to serve as a waterproofing agent. Asphalt also holds the granules in place and adds to the overall strength of the roofing shingle. Good quality asphalt will stay flexible and will not dry out or become hard or brittle for the expected life of the roofing shingle.
There are three major categories of asphalt roofing shingles:
Strip Asphalt Roofing Shingles- Single-layered asphalt roofing shingles typically designed to look like slate. Strip roofing shingles are usually the lightest weight asphalt roofing shingles available on the market. Built on a tough fiber glass base, each shingle provides resistance to blow-off and tearing.
Dimensional Asphalt Roofing Shingles
– Multilayered and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look). Dimensional roofing shingles typically are heavier than strip roofing shingles and usually have improved warranty protections.
Premium Asphalt Roofing Shingles
– Generally described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional dimensional asphalt roofing shingles. They may have designs that mimic “old-world” roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles.
Low Slope EPDM Rubber Membrane Roofs
Durability, design versatility, and installation ease are among the many reasons ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is the most popular material for both new and re-roof flat or low-slope roofing applications. For over 45 years, even with the introduction of other materials, EPDM has been the go-to roofing material for both flat roof and low slope roof applications.
Even though shingles can be installed on a roof with a slope from 2:12 to 4:12, a continuous self-adhered layer of ice and water guard must be installed to prevent wind-driven water from entering the structure. It is highly recommended that roofs from 0:12 (flat) to 2:12 be covered with a continuous membrane system.
