Elastomeric is a monolithic, fully adhered, fluid applied roofing membrane. It has elastic properties that allows it to stretch and return to their original shape without damage. Typical roof coating dry film thickness vary from paint film thickness (plus or minus 3 dry mils) to more than 40 dry mils. This means a roof coating actually becomes the top layer of a composite roof membrane and underlying system.
Aluminum Gutters finish to complement your home and durable aluminum construction for long life. Use this gutter to control runoff and help prevent foundation erosion.
Steel Gutters finish to complement your home and durable, galvanized-steel construction for long life. This gutter fits 5 in. gutter systems and has a traditional K style design. Ideal for repairs, replacement and as an add-on to existing 5 in. gutter systems, this gutter helps control runoff, protects walls and helps prevent foundation damage.
Modified Torch Down's core is a strong, resilient, non-woven polyester mat that is coated with weather resistant, APP polymer modified asphalt. The membrane is available with smooth surface.
Copper Gutters systems are crafted from the highest quality materials. Copper gutter systems create a dramatic accent that enhances the beauty of your property. Although elegant in appearance, they are also functional.
Clay Tiles, also called building tile, structural terra cotta, hollowtile, and clay block, the material is an extruded clayshape with substantial depth that allows it to be laid in the same manner as other clay or concrete masonry.
Modified Bitumen (Torch/Self Adhered)'s core is a strong, resilient, non-woven polyester mat that is coated with weather resistant, APP polymer modified asphalt. The membrane is available with smooth surface.
Ice Dam Abatement Ice dams begin to form where the meltwater exits the snow at the drip edge. They then build upward to the wall line, create a standing water condition, and interior leaks result.
Silicone Restoration System is a spray foam and coatings provide seamless insulation and waterproofing, and are fully adhered to the substrate. This eliminates common sources of leaks and pooling water beneath roofing material.
Acrylics are very common in the roofing market today because they are typically water-based products and are cost effective. Water-based acrylic roof coatings are both easy to use and environmentally friendly.
We are professionals and know the difference between a Shake and a Modified Bitumen (Torch/Self Adhered) ...but sometimes we forget that not everyone speaks "Roofing!” This guide will get you to Roofing Expert level in short order! Prepare to be amazed about what you’ll know! *
Urathanes offers a service life of eight to 12 years, the longest of any of the coating options. This solvent-based polymer coating is the most expensive of the four types and offers similar reflectivity to that of a white acrylic coating.
Aluminum which are typically asphalt-based products, are often used to add reflectivity to a built-up or modified bitumen roof surface or to rust- and waterproof metal roofs.
E.P.D.M (Rubber) is an extremely durable syntheticrubber roofing membrane widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States and worldwide. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas.
B.U.R Built up roof membranes, referred to by the acronym BUR, have been in use in the U.S. for more than 100 years. These roof systems are commonly referred to as "tar and gravel" roofs. BUR systems generally are composed of alternating layers of bitumen and reinforcing fabrics that create a finished membrane.
Stone coated metal roof is made from steel or some other metal; the metal is then coated with stone chips and attached to the steel with an acrylic film. The goal is a more durable roof that still retains the aesthetic advantages of a more traditional roofing material

Fiberglass insulation has proven over the years to provide effective temperature and sound insulation. In the right conditions the insulation will add millions of tiny air pockets that give the material its insulating power and energy-saving R-value over time.
T.P.O Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) single-ply roofingmembranes are among the fastest growing commercial roofing products and have gained broad industry acceptance for their many performance and installation advantages
Silicone Roof Coating is a coating that can be applied over most roof surfaces. Unlike acrylic coatings, which are water based, silicone is made of polymers and doesn’t contain water. Silicone is a moisture-cured coating designed to reflect the heat of the sun and UV rays as well as protect many types of roofs.
Shakeis a basic wooden shingle that are made from split logs. Shakes have traditionally been used for roofing and siding applications around the world. If properly installed shakes provide long lasting weather protection and a rustic aesthetic.
P.V.C is one kind of single ply roofing, which means it consists of one layer manufactured in a factory. The membrane is made of thick, flexible UV-resistant thermoplastic material; it may also contain polyester or fiberglass, resins, pigments, plasticizers and other chemicals.
Shingles are a roof covering consisting of individual overlapping elements. These elements are typically flat, rectangular shapes laid in courses from the bottom edge of the roof up, with each successive course overlapping the joints below.
Metal roof is a roofing system made from metal piece, or tiles. It is a component of the building envelope. Metal roofs protect buildings. In the United States, metal comprises 10% of the overall residential re-roofing market.
Polyurea is the most advanced and versatile metal roof coating system in today’s market. Utilizing the newest in polyurea-urethane hybrid chemistry, it is resistant to ponding water and ultraviolet rays. Its high physical properties and excellent expansion/contraction capabilities deliver economic, long-term performance.
Emulsion is a premium, versatile coating for the protection of roofing materials, metal, and masonry surfaces. Solvent-free, it is made from asphalt emulsified with bentonite clay and water. It is cold-applied, non-flammable while wet, corrosion-resistant, and waterproof when dry.
Concrete roof tile is made of sand, cement, and water. Concrete tile is available in several different colors and a couple of textures. The surface texture of the tile can be smooth or rough. Most are color impregnated rather than just slurry coated.
Tile Roofing, which lasts a long time and won't rot or burn under a scorching summer sun, nothing says “Southwestern style” quite like it. It has durability beyond compare, energy cost savings, and protection like no other roofing material.
Commercial Standing Seam Metal as the name implies, exposed fastener metal roofing systems use screw fastener system that are visible on the exterior of the metal roof surface after installation.
