  ROOFS | SHINGLED & FLATS
 
 
Everything you need under one roof.
 
A new roof system is a big investment. And we are here to help you make the right decision for your home or commercial building. There are a number of things to consider when selecting your new roof system. Of course, cost and durability are at the top of the list. When it comes to a roof, the highest quality with a balance of affordability is everything – which is always our main focus.
 
Asphalt shingles are, by far, the most common for pitched roofs used in residential construction and for continuous membrane roofs for commercial buildings in the greater New England area. Asphalt shingles are durable and can be reinforced with organic or fiberglass materials.
 
The keys to a properly constructed asphalt roof are, as follows:
 
 

•    Proper metal or vinyl flashing which ensures continuous water tightness
•    Proper drip edge so that water is conducted away from the building
•    High quality shingles on pitched roofs in residential buildings
•    A continuous membrane system for commercial buildings
