BUILT UP ROOF
Built-up roofing(BUR) is a layered roofing system.
To begin a BUR project, felt paper is rolled out and embedded in either hot asphalt, coal tar pitch, or cold adhesive (types of bitumen). Then, another roll is laid parallel on top of the first roll and again embedded in asphalt, pitch or adhesive. This process is continued to the edge of the roof. After all of the felts have been laid out, another coating of bitumen will cover the entire roof surface and gravel will be embedded into it. Once completed, you will have built-up a roof of four layers of felt paper and five layers of bitumen.
Built-up roofing can be used in both new construction projects and on existing buildings. BUR systems have low flexibility and are only appropriate on roof decks with minimal movement or where appropriate expansion joints are provided. BUR systems require periodic maintenance to maximize their service life.

Single-Ply is a term for a type of roofing material that is manufactured in large sheets.
These sheets, or membranes, range from 10 to 40 feet wide and up to 200 feet long. The two main types are EPDM(commonly referred to as rubber and usually black) and PVC(mostly a plastic and usually white). A third type, called TPO, is a hybrid of the two other types and is also white.
There are three methods of attachment that apply to all three types:
- Ballasted: the membrane is laid loosely on top of the insulation and a 3⁄4”-1 1⁄2” size rock is used to cover the entire roof surface.
- Fully adhered: the membrane is glued to the substrate.
- Mechanically attached: the membrane is secured with screws and plates to the substrate, which are usually 8-10 feet on center.
Single-ply systems require periodic maintenance to maximize their service life.

STANDING SEAM METAL ROOF
The standing seam metal roof is one of the most exciting breakthroughs in roofing technology in the last 25 years.
A standing seam metal roof is:
- specifically designed to work in harmony with the forces of nature.
Metal roofing has been used in some 50% of all low-rise commercial and industrial buildings erected in the last several years, and the acceptance has carried over to the re-roofing market as well. This roof system comes in a variety of colors and styles and makes a very low-maintenance roof.

Shingle is a term that refers to any roof made with shingles or shakes. They typically come in either asphalt or wood.
Asphalt shingles come in a variety of styles, colors, levels of durability, and manufacturers. They will be either organic or non-organic(made of fiberglass), dimensional, or three-tab.
Wood shingles are most commonly made of Western Red Cedar and come in ether shingles or shakes in several different sizes and with varying exposures. Shakes are thicker and rougher, and they vary in size and shape because they were split rather than sawn from the log. Shingles are thinner, smoother, and come in a more consistent size and shape.
Shingle roofs require periodic maintenance to maximize their service life.

SLATE & TILE
Slate roofing is one of the most aesthetically pleasing and durable of all roofing materials. It is indicative at once of the awesome powers of nature that formed it and the expertise and skill of the craftsmen who hand-shaped it and those who laid it on the roof. Installed properly, slate roofs require relatively little maintenance and will last 60 to 125 years or longer depending on the slate type, roof configuration, and the geographical location of the property.
Found on virtually every class of structure, slate is often the roofing of choice when longevity is a higher priority. For historical buildings where the pattern, detailing, and craftsmanship are important design elements to the structure, repairing rather than replacing is often the right choice.

COMMERCIAL TILE ROOFS
Tile roofs are typically made of concrete or clay. They can be found in almost any climate and can withstand some of the most hazardous weather conditions. That protection is what makes tile one of the most appealing roofing materials available. The color and design can be tailored to almost any style of home or building, and its durability enables manufacturers to offer some of the longest warranties in the roofing industry.
Installed properly, tile roofs require virtually no maintenance, and they are a more environmentally-friendly option than many other roofing materials because of tile’s durability and tile’s reliance on concrete and clay rather than say fiberglass or petroleum-based asphalt.
