What is your primary product or service?2020-09-08T20:17:08+00:00

We specialize in all types of roofing. If you have a flat roof, we will typically install Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO), a single-ply reflective roofing system made from ethylene-propylene rubber and polyprophylene polymerized together. The most common types of roofing product installed are shingles. Shingles come with a 25, 30, 40, and 50 year warranty. If you are looking for a quality but affordable roof, we recommend 30 year laminated shingles. These shingles typically have a 110 mile per hour wind warranty where the 25 year shingles typically have a 60 mile per hour wind warranty. Laminated shingles are typically going to be the best value shingle. We also offer tile roofing for which many styles and colors are available. If you are looking for a premium roof, we offer standing seam metal roofing. Finally, no matter what style roof you are looking for, we can install it in metal. We have metal that has the look of tile, wood shakes, shingles, and many more options.
