Shingle Roof Slate Roof Tile Roof Metal Roof

Shingle Roof

Roof shingles are a roof covering consisting of individual overlapping elements. These elements are normally flat rectangular shapes that are laid in rows without the side edges overlapping, a single layer is used to ensure a water-resistant result. Shingles are laid from the bottom edge of the roof up, with the bottom edge of each row overlapping the previous row by about one third its length. Historically, at the roof ridge there was a cap consisting of copper or lead sheeting which in modern times has been substituted by shingles with a plastic underlay.

Asphalt shingles

Made from layers of asphalt and fiberglass materials with a granulated surface. There are several types of asphalt singles including 3-Tab, T-Lock (now discontinued), Dimensional and Laminate. There are many styles of dimensional shingles from single laminate inexpensive shingles to multi laminate heavy duty shingles made to look like wood shake or slate. Asphalt shingles come with roof warranties from 20 to 50 years or lifetime. They are tested to withstand wind up to 130 MPH depending on the type and style. 3-tab shingles are standard-size fiberglass shingles offered in a wide variety of colors to complement the exterior design of any home. Usually available with 20 to 30 years warranty term.

Architectural shingle

Architectural shingles are modeled after the look of cedar shake shingles without the fire hazard, insect problems, rotting, and expense. An architectural shingle can increase the appeal and re-sale value of your home. Other advantages include heavier weight and thicker (reducing blow-offs), less potential for curling, and they have a textured uneven look for a clean appearance when applied over badly deteriorated roofing. Material warranty varies between 30 years to Lifetime.

Wood shake shingle

Wood shingles have been used for hundreds of years. They have proven their longevity in actual weather conditions, in all types of climates. Their insulative quality, aesthetic appeal, and wind and impact resistance make wood shingles a good choice for your roofing and siding material.

Slate Roof

Considered one of the longest lasting roofing materials, slate can endure 50 to more than 100 years. A very brittle and expensive roof. Slate requires no maintenance and weathers naturally. Colors vary depending upon where the slate is mined.



Tile Roof

Concrete and clay tile are frequently chosen as roof protection and accentuation with southeast residential and commercial architecture. The performance and longevity of a concrete tile roof to its aesthetic qualities results in a project that gets noticed. Whether you are a production builder looking for ways to differentiate your development or a homeowner who plans to sell your home in the near future, a concrete tile roof will help increase the home's value.

Metal roof

There is a wide selection of metal roofing material, such as metal tiles and shakes, big variety of panels (R-panel, V-Crimp, Low-Profile, Corrugated "s" panel, Standing Seam Panel)
Metal roofs, once the most popular choice in roofing, are regaining their position as the preferred material for modern roofs. Popular metals for roofing include aluminum, copper, and steel. These are all fire-resistant, relatively low maintenance, and eco-friendly due to the reflective nature of a metal roof and the recyclability of metal construction materials.

  • Advantages

  • Fire resistant and low maintenance
  • Can be made in a variety of styles
  • Certain metals are inexpensive, such as aluminum
  • Many are energy efficient, lowering electricity bills and even qualifying for tax credits in some areas


Most of the panels (except for a standing seam) are exposing screws with rubber washers, which are tend to deteriorate and disappear with time, and it is the main cause for future leaks.
Metal shakes or tiles cannot be installed on the lower then 5/12 pitched roof.

Skylights and Sun Tunnels

Skylights and Sun Tunnels bring the outdoors into your property. The infiltration of natural light and fresh air into your building will make it seem significantly spacious and beautiful.

The installation of Skylights and Sun Tunnels will undoubtedly enhance your living space. There is a wide assortment of leak proof and energy–efficient skylights, roof windows and sun tunnels to choose from to complete the look/functionality you desire. This is a great way for you to "go green" by bringing day lighting into your building.

Cool Roofs

Over the past 5 years, the installation of Cool Roofs has become the single largest trend in roofing industry. Due to increasing population and energy consumption, environmental concerns, energy shortages and vastly improved life cycle costing, Cool Roofing is finally receiving the attention it deserves.

While many low slope roofs have a variety of surface colors such as off-whites, aluminum/silver, or light-colored granules, none of these finishes can be considered a "cool roof" by today's higher standards.

In order to comply with Energy Star® and Cool Roof Rating Council® standards, the minimum reflectivity needs to be at least 70%. Only continuous white or shades of white-such as off-white or cream color-can meet these reflectivity standards.

Typically, a beige-colored gravel roof, white shingle granules, and even the silver sheen of an aluminized roof only reflect up to a maximum of ± 65% of the sun's light-and therefore cannot meet the new standards.

White granules are not as effective as continuous white or light colors, as there are usually small black asphalt spots adjacent to a granule particle, and because they can create shadows depending on the angle of light and size of the granule. Thus the reflectivity of granule surfaces is far below the 70% minimum reflectivity standards for a "cool roof."

There is also the 'Heat Island Effect'. As urban areas develop, changes occur in their landscape. Buildings, roads, and other infrastructure replace open land and vegetation. Surfaces that were once permeable and moist become impermeable and dry. These changes cause urban regions to become warmer than their rural surroundings, forming an "island" of higher temperatures in the landscape.(

  • Advantages

  • Urban heat island mitigation
  • Reduced energy use
  • Reduced air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions
  • Improved human health and comfort

A cool roof transfers less heat to the building below, so the building stays cooler and uses less energy for air conditioning.
By lowering energy use, cool roofs decrease the production of associated air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
Cool roofs can reduce air temperatures inside buildings with and without air conditioning, helping to prevent heat-related illnesses and deaths.

A California study found that cool roofs provide an average yearly net savings of almost 50 cents per square foot. This number includes the price premium for cool roofing products and increased heating costs in the winter as well as summertime energy savings, savings from downsizing cooling equipment, and reduced labor and material costs over time due to the longer life of cool roofs compared with conventional roofs.

For roof restoration, replacement and new construction we employ the use of Hydro Stop Roofing system® , or Uniflex® both of these systems are complies with Energy Star® and Cool Roof Rating Council® standards, and Master Maintenance Company is certified by them.

Modified Flat Roof

  • Advantages

  • Granular surface - helps protect this Asphalt/SBS Rubber based product against water
  • Modified can last a long time when installed on a low slope roof with a minimum 1/12 pitch.
  • Both the GTA & STA have a polyester mat for increased water resistance.
  • Smooth Modified can be coated with a white elastometric or other protective coating every 3 to 7 years to extend its life will beyond most 10-year warranties.
  • Disadvantages

  • Most warranties are 10 to 12-year material only.
  • Degrades very quickly on flat roofs with standing water (usually within 5 years.
  • Left uncoated modified will degrade with exposure to the sun, ice & water.
  • Most modified is applied with an open flame or torch (GTA & STA) for the best adhesion, creating a risk if not installed properly.

TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin)


Seams are heat welded to avoid adhesive failures. White Surface reflects 85% of harmful U.V. rays to extend the lifespan of white TPO. TPO is a fully adhered roof membrane secured by screwing through the underlying wood decking, making it more secure than modified roofing. Adhesive can be used to assist bonding, especially at flashings.


TPO Surface bonding to the reinforced mesh has been a manufacturing problem with many manufacturers. The most reliable product that has proven stability is manufactured by Carlisle. TPO is vulnerable to impact from hail. Reinforcement in TPO is a lot less than in reinforced PVC woven reinforced membrane.
