We feature expert installation of the following materials:
Asphalt shingles. The most economical and most popular roofing material – three-quarters of homes in the United States are covered with it – asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors and can be installed quickly by our roofing contractors in Pittsburgh PA.
Recent development of the dimensional shingle, also known as an architectural or laminated shingle, has added new interest to the asphalt shingle market. Dimensional shingles are made by bonding together two layers of shingle material, with random notches taken out to expose the bottom shingle layer. This creates an attractive three-dimensional effect, and also a longer lifespan due to the double-bonded thickness.
Tile. Clay and concrete tiles are extremely durable and fireproof, and can also help reduce cooling costs. They now come in a flexible range of sizes, shapes and colors, not just the red Spanish style! It’s hard to beat the longevity and durability of tile; over the lifetime of a tile roof, an asphalt roof would have to be replaced two to three times.
Slate. Slate is the granddaddy of all roofing materials, lasting 100 years or more. The natural variations of slate tiles create a unique and sophisticated look for a roof, but it’s also one of the most expensive choices. For installation, slate requires experienced Pittsburgh roofers, and professional slate roof repair in Pittsburgh.
Wood shingles and shakes. This roofing material is typically sourced from species of redwood, cedar and pine due to their natural resistance to rot and pests. Shakes may be handcrafted for a rough and rustic look, while shingles are machine-finished. Once it has been treated for fire-resistance, this material becomes a durable and charming way to add character to a home. However, wood does require experienced installation and regular maintenance.
