Asphalt shingles comprise the largest segment of steep slope roofing. They are composed of fibrous glass mats infused with asphalt. Because asphalt is so easily degraded by UV exposure, a surfacing of varying colored mineral granules is imbedded into the exposed side of the asphalt shingle that also imparts its finished color. Shingles are overlapped and secured by nailing through the roof overlay of felts or roof paper into the roof deck from the bottom of the roof slope to the high point of the roof referred to as the ridge.

Concrete and clay tiles are also installed in overlapping fashion with a combination of nails and mortar.

Wood shakes are nailed like shingles over a roof felt and usually into a wood deck. The downside to wood shakes is their lack of significant fire resistance.

Gutters play a critical role in keeping your roof working efficiently. In both residential and commercial roofing, the gutter is designed to catch runoff from your roof and carry it away from the exterior of the building. Keeping water away helps protect your building's foundation, siding, windows and doors. Excess water drainage or standing water may contribute to shifting foundations, rotting wood, mold, mildew and other damaging conditions.

Every type of building is unique and therefore needs a tailor-made plan for gutters in order to ensure maximum effectiveness. Our team of professional roofers provides detailed information about your specific location and offers a selection of quality gutter systems in a variety of colors.
