Asphalt Shingles

Most asphalt roof shingles used today are technically known as asphalt fiberglass shingles because of the fiberglass mat embedded in the shingle that provides an extra measure of strength and tear resistance.

These shingles are affordable, easy to install, durable, and available in a wide variety of colors, which makes them the most popular type of roofing for sloped roofs. Premium grades of “laminated” asphalt fiberglass shingles are typically warrantied for 50 years.

Rubber Roofing

Frequently used for garage and porch roofing, Rubber roofs have a long lifespan and can withstand harsh New England weather conditions.

After years of research and development, there is finally rubber roofing that is thin, dependable, and waterproof. Also known as ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) roofing, rubber roofing is ideal for flat or mostly-flat roofs on homes. EPDM has many benefits, including being resistant to tears, rips, and inclement weather.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is durable and has many available styles & colors to complement your home’s appearance.

When you choose metal roofing, you decide between factory-formed and finished roofing panels, or roofing panels that are cut and shaped on-site. Metal roofing works best on simple, flat roofs and installation of metal roofing is also non-invasive.
