Asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors, grades, and styles. They are backed with either fiberglass or organic material, Asphalt is the most common type of roofing material in the United States.
Available in both a panel and shingle form. Metal roofs are lightweight and have a better resistance to adverse weather conditions.
Concrete and clay tiles are available in a variety of colors or finishes. Tile has a real nice look but can be an expensive and heavy option.
Wooden or shake shingles are made from different woods including cedar, redwood, pine and others. The difference between “shake” and “wood” is that wood shingles are made by machines while shake is handmade.
We service both aluminum and steel gutters. Aluminum is the most popular gutter on the market. It is relatively inexpensive and durable. Unlike steel, aluminum will not rust over time and is available in a wide range of colors.
Steel gutters are usually galvanized, although stainless steel is an option. Galvanized stel guttres will eventually rust after 20-25 years, but steel is strong and durable, making it a popular because it can hold up to the extreme weather, heavy rains and snow. Steel is slightly more expensive than aluminum. The stainless steel option (expensive) will not rust.
Vinyl Siding is one of the most popular choices in siding. This is because it is low cost (compared to the other choices) and it is easy to maintain. You will not have to paint this siding. If it gets dirty it is easy to clean, just a little soap and/or water. Vinyl siding is very durable and is available in a variety of colors and styles.
Strong and durable aluminum siding can last 40 years or more according to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, but may require painting every 5-10 years. One benefit to aluminum is that it takes paint well, making it fairly easy to maintain or even change the color of your home. Despite it’s strength, this material is susceptible to dents and dings, which can generally only be removed by replacing a section of siding.
Hardie Board is durable & long lasting. Comes with a 30-50 year warranty. It does need to be painted and caulked every 5-10 years. This is a more expensive choice for siding and requires a crew that has the special equipment to install on your home. This is also known as cement board. This is very fire resistant, but not fireproof.
T1-11 Siding comes in two major grades, plywood and OSB(or oriented stand board). The plywood product is a little more expensive but is far superior to the OSB variety because of its greater durability and expanded finishing options. Plywood T1-11, also known as plywood siding, can be stained if you’re looking for a natural wood look, or it can be primed and painted. On top of that, plywood siding can also be purchased in sanded or rough hewn varieties, although choosing between these two surfaces is purely an aesthetic choice.
