Roofing Materials and Important Facts
Each type of roof has its own specific material used when re-roofing is required. Gronow Roofing will always be happy to explain the pros and cons of each roof type and whether or not it is appropriate for your home or commercial building.
The following are some important facts from our roofing contractors to help you make a more informed decision.
Fiberglass Laminate Shingles – This system is perfect for all climate conditions. They also are available with an Algae-resistant roofing granule system used for fiberglass laminate shingles. This is a two-part system of Copper Roofing Granules and colored ceramic-coated Granules that resist discoloration from algae and lichen. They are available in 30 year, 40 year, 50 year, and lifetime warranties. These will outlast most roofs and are architecturally pleasing to the eye.
Low Slope and Inset Gutters – Self-adhesive 2 and 3 ply membranes for a low slope roof and inset gutters. Self-adhesive products do not require the use of a torch, which in return removes the stress of burning down a structure. This saves on expensive insurance costs.
Cedar Shakes & Shingles – This type of roofing generally lasts longer than its asphalt counterpart, is aesthetically pleasing, more eco-friendly and is also relatively easy to install. On the down side, they are also susceptible to moss, and therefore require regular maintenance, and can be damaged by prolonged exposure to sunlight. With proper routine maintenance a professionally installed cedar roof will maintain its aesthetic appeal for years to come.
Metal Roofing - While a metal roof can be more costly, it does provide home and business owners with a number of benefits. It also is available in a variety of textures and colours, is lightweight, and will add to the value of your home or building. Metal roof installation must, however always be done by professional roofers.
Standing Seam Metal Roofing – This weather-tight roof system has quickly become one of the most popular types of metal roofing in Canada. The name is derived from the locks or ribs that are used in its production. This system is mostly used on buildings with a roof pitch of 3 inches or more with the most common types being Snap Lock and Mechanical Lock. Others can include Snap on Seam or Batten. One of the many benefits of this system is that there are no exposed rivets or screws on the panel surface.
