Having a roof over your head is a common idiom used to say that you have adequate shelter. What if the roof over your head is leaking or has been wrecked by a storm? You are now looking for a new roof to be installed quickly.
At Union Roofing, we want to provide you with fast and reliable roofing services. We are a customer-first company that specializes in installing and repairing all types of roofs. We also want you to stay on top of all the different styles of roofs we service. Here is a brief overview of five different roofs we install.
Shingle roofs are the most common roofs we encounter. Asphalt shingles are very common and one of the less expensive options. These shingles can be organic or reinforced with fiberglass, which helps to keep water out and protect the roof from harmful UV rays. They can also be coated with a laminate for aesthetics.
Shingles made from wood, usually cedar, present an alternative to a traditional asphalt roof. Although they are costlier, wood shingles are reliable in most climates, act as a natural insulator, resist UV damage and are applied with a fire-resistant coating by many manufacturers.
Looking for a distinct look? You might want to invest in a slate roof. This style is renown for its durability and elegant natural appearance. This natural stone roof can last for over 100 years and gives you many color options. It is non-combustible, so it will protect your home or business if a fire occurred.
With many different colors and styles available, tile roofs are another great option. They are more expensive than roofs made from shingles, but last longer. Tile can resist high winds and are perfect for colder climates. The materials to make tile are environmentally friendly as they do not deplete natural resources and don’t have any chemical preservatives in them.
Rubber roofs are also known as EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) roofs. This option isn’t as popular but is cost-effective. They are installed by licensed professionals — like Union Roofing — and can come in a variety of thickness. Repairs and maintenance on these roofs are simpler than others and is fire resistant. They take both the extreme cold and heat and lower energy costs by providing phenomenal insulation.
Metal roofs are commonly made from steel, copper or aluminum. They are coated to prevent rust and last longer. They can be stamped into various shapes and last for a long time. They can also be recycled once they have run their course.
