With roofing designs and materials being more extensive than ever, choosing a roof type can often be a daunting task for both homeowners and construction experts alike. Changing the overall appearance of the exterior of your home, the choices are often only limited by your own tastes and preferences.
As specialists in all types of roofing, the Elite Roofing team offers superior workmanship with the following types:
As what is arguably the most popular residential roof style, shingle roofs provide years of beautiful functionality and protection. Differing in color, style, size and material, shingled roofs give homeowners a plethora of options, matching and enhancing the outdoor aesthetics of their home.
Shingle types include:
- Asphalt – The most commonly used roofing material in North America, asphalt shingles are both economical and versatile. Requiring minimal maintenance, asphalt shingles are sought after for their resistance to both sun and moisture.
- Cedar Shake – Recognized for its unique and natural appearance, a cedar shake roof promises years of durability and beauty. Resistant to both insects and UV damage, cedar shakes remain a popular choice in many areas throughout West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
We also offer commercial shingle roofing, which is often a cost-effective choice that doesn’t sacrifice much in terms of aesthetics or durability.
Offering durability and distinctive aesthetics, clay and concrete tile roofs add an elegant touch to any home. Homeowners should understand that the weight of these high-end roofs usually means additional construction concerns and costs.
EPDM Roofing / Rubber Roofing
EPDM roofs, also called ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber (it’s easy to see why we shorten it, isn’t it?), are often used on commercial buildings. The synthetic rubber roofing materials offers a durable option for commercial property managers looking for a cost-effective and long-lasting roofing solution.
Rubber Tile Roofs
Mimicking the appearance of asphalt shingles or slate tiles, rubber tiles are ideal for low-sloping and flat roofs. Waterproof and pliable, rubber tile roofs promise years of low-maintenance durability. Easily installed and resistant to extreme weather and damaging UV rays, rubber roofs have been known to last twice as long as other types of roofing.
With a life expectancy of more than a century (depending on several factors, including use and installation), slate roofs are probably the most eco-friendly roofing option. Manufactured with natural stone, slate tiles are exceedingly attractive and promise decades of maintenance-free reliability. They are much heavier than most other roofing materials, so their use should be carefully considered.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
If you have a low-slope roof, a modified bitumen roofing system might be the solution due to the fact that they are extremely durable and weather resistant. SBS and APP are the most common types of modified bitumen roofs, with both featuring flexibility, ease-of-repair, and ease-of-quality control by the roof installers themselves. Easy, effective installations alongside affordable upkeep sounds good as far as we are concerned!
One of the few truly fireproof roofing materials, metal provides both home and business owners with a versatile, lightweight and easy-to-maintain roofing option. With a life expectancy of more than 30 years, metal roofs can help you save money in the long run. Keep in mind that if you are looking for commercial metal roofing, businesses of all kinds can choose all the metal roofing materials we offer at Elite Roofing. If you’d like some advice on which metal roof might be right for your particular building, we’d be happy to put our experience to good use for you!
TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) Roofing
Also known as TPO roofs, TPO roofing systems feature a single-play reflective roofing membrane. TPO roofing systems are affordable, and as such they represent a more cost-effective yet similar option as EPDM rubber roofs.
Used almost primarily on commercial facilities, flat roofs are a great option for regions where rainfall amounts are minimal. Though they do have a slight pitch in order to direct water to the edges and towards down spots, they are not recommended for buildings whose roofs are prone to puddling.
Roof Coatings – Gecko & Henry Coatings
While it might not be a roof type in the proper sense, Elite Roofing also offers roof coating systems. We carry both Gaco silicone roof coating systems or Henry roof coatings. We recommend considering silicone roof coatings due to their effectiveness in resisting degrading, chalking, and degrading. The smooth surface means that mildew, stain, and mold will not be able to take hold as easily.
