This covers a wide array of roof systems. Torch-Down is the modern alternative to a built up hot tar roof with the same guarantee. It is applied in a much safer manner than other flat roofing. It is designed for low sloped or flat deck roof styles. Mostly used in commercial applications, this roof system is ideal for balconies, Florida rooms or flat porch roofs. Rubber roofs are a little more expensive than torch-down, but offer more durability. Cold-process roofs are less costly than hot tar and offer less durability while requiring more maintenance than that of torch-down or rubber.
Asphalt shingle roof systems are one of the most economical options that can last anywhere between 30-50 years and add design and value to your home. Asphalt shingle roofing offers the widest variety of colour variations, all designed to blend with your house or environment. Most home owners are known to implement this kind of roofing in their re-roofing and new construction homes.
Green Roof Systems
A green roof is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing medium, planted over a waterproofing membrane. Also known as a "living roof", green roofs serve several purposes for a building, such as
create a habitat for wildlife
lower urban air temperatures
reduce the heat island effect(a cause of ozone production)
Plant roofs remove heavy metals, airborne particles and volatile organic compounds from the air. Green roofs also convert carbon dioxide(a greenhouse gas) into oxygen through photosynthesis.
