ASPHALT COMPOSITION SHINGLES

Affordable. Quality. Versatile.

80% of US houses have asphalt shingle roofs

Asphalt roof shingles are the most popular and reasonably priced type of roof material in the world, and available in a wide range of shapes, colors, and thicknesses. The most common type of new shingles is the composition 3-tab asphalt roof shingle, or, more recently, the laminate architectural shingle.

Once installed, a shingled roof requires virtually no regularly scheduled maintenance, as is necessary with other roofing systems – and shingles are easy to repair if damaged. One of the benefits of an asphalt shingle roof is that individual shingles can be replaced without replacing the entire roof. The insulation and ventilation in your attic will directly impact moss, curling, or cracks on the roofing shingles, or mold or rot on the decking (the wood surface upon which the shingle is installed). If you are aware of these issues, it’s a good idea to call a roofing professional.

FREE UPGRADE

In Colorado, hailstorms are frequent, and hail damage to a roof may require a roof replacement long before a shingle’s life expectancy. Lost granules are a typical result of a hailstone hitting an asphalt shingle. As a top roofing company in Colorado, we install only high-end asphalt shingle roofing brands, such as Owens Corning, CertainTeed, and GAF. We frequently recommend Owens Corning since they manufacture locally in Denver, CO.

At Metro City Roofing, we offer a complimentary upgrade to Class 4 shingles, which better withstands hail damage. Asphalt roofing shingles with a Class 4 rating achieve the highest industry performance standards to withstand high winds and hail damage. Most insurance companies offer up to 28% discounts on a homeowners insurance policy with upgraded Class 4 shingles, representing $863 average annual savings or $26,000 savings over 30 years.

3-Tab Roof Shingles

3-tab shingles are manufactured in sheets with three equal tabs on the bottom to give the appearance of three separate shingles when installed on a roof. These shingles provide dimension and depth, as well as protecting water and weather.

3-tab shingles function well in nearly every climate and, depending on local code requirements, can be installed over your current roof (called re-roofing). However, typically roof replacement is preferred where the roofer will tear off all roof materials down to the decking or sheathing.

This shingle type is rated with up to a 25-year life expectancy when installed and properly maintained. While asphalt shingles are the least expensive of roofing systems, they also have the lowest life expectancy.

Laminate or Dimensional Roof Shingles

Laminate or dimensional shingles are an upgrade from a 3-tab shingle and a popular choice due to their double thickness compared to a 3-tab shingle. The design differs from the traditional 3-tab asphalt shingle look because the actual shingle tabs have various sizes and shapes.

These different sizes and shapes give them a more “dimensional” look to them and make a shingle roof look more like wood shake. Manufacturers fused a second layer onto the base shingle, which upgrades most manufacturer warranties between 30-50 years.

Architectural Roof Shingles

Architectural shingles are an even thicker asphalt shingle that can create the appearance of natural roofing such as slate, cedar, or clay tiles. Due to their extra thickness and contouring, they cost more than traditional asphalt shingles but last longer with more extended warranties. Architectural shingles range in expected life expectancy from 30 to 50 years and are fire-resistant, wind-resistant, and prevent algae and mold growth. In some cases, these shingles have a Class 4 Impact Resistant rating, which often enables a discount to a homeowner’s insurance policy.

The longest-lasting asphalt shingle, the architectural shingle, is made of higher quality materials, and the price reflects this increase in quality. Architectural styles are also called dimensional, laminate, or composite shingles, and offer superior design capabilities.

The following are the advantages of an architectural shingle:

  • Cost – When considering upscale roofing options, architectural shingles act as a more budget-friendly choice than tiles, slate, or metal. Although architectural shingles have a higher average roof cost than 3-tab shingles, this product offers increased durability to offset the higher price in the long run. Architectural or dimensional shingles typically have a 30-year warranty or longer with a Class 4 Impact Resistant option.
  • Durability – 3-tab shingles typically have one row of material placed on the decking or sheathing. With an architectural shingle roof, there are several layers, enabling increased wind resistance.
  • Appearance – Architectural roof shingles add a 3D dimension to a roof, comparable to wood shake or slate tiles. Architectural shingles are manufactured in a wide range of styles and variety of colors and allow homeowners to customize their roof appearance.

Solar Roofing

Solar is also known as photovoltaic energy. The photovoltaic system’s actual energy output will depend on several factors, including location and incline of the system, plus temperature and shading conditions. It is important to factor a good design to achieve maximum benefit.

The experienced installers at Metro City Roofing will guide you through any requirements with the detach and reset of your solar panels or solar tiles related to your hail damage roof insurance claim.

TILE ROOFING

Beautiful. Durable. Premium.

Tile roofs have great curb appeal, no matter the type, plus they are incredibly durable. Tile roofing has a Class A fire rating due to its fire-resistant qualities.

The following are different types of tile roofing:

  • Concrete tile roofing – Concrete roofing tiles typically cost less than other types of tile roofs, while keeping its beautiful visual appeal.
  • Clay tile roofing – Clay has been a popular roofing material dating back to 10,000 BC. Clay tile (or ceramic tile) can withstand hurricane-like high winds and is energy efficient due to its reflective properties. Clay roof tiles are very popular in the Mediterranean and associated with European countries. In the United States, clay tile is popular in southern states such as Arizona and Florida.
  • Slate tile roofing – Slate roofs have long been considered a premium roofing material, primarily used in residential structures. Slate roofing offers several customer benefits, including a classic aesthetic appeal, durability since they are made of stone, and longevity. Modern homeowner choices include natural slate and synthetic slate shingles.

When searching for a tile roofer, choose one with experience. While tile can last 100 years, its installation requires a contractor who is sufficiently skilled with this type of roofing material. Metro City Roofing has the experience and does a great job with every roofing installation we perform.

At Metro City Roofing, we are committed to delivering outstanding service to our customers and hold our staff to high standards. We provide a variety of roofing services, including residential roof replacements and roof repairs and maintenance. We install tiles from premium manufacturers such as Boral, Ludowici, and more.

Architectural shingles now offer synthetic tile roofing, which imitates the look of a new concrete or slate roof without the weight issues that can impact a homeowner’s decision to select this type of roofing material. Due to the lightweight of synthetic shingles, owners can avoid additional roof support, which saves on costly structural reinforcements.

WOOD SHAKE

Environmental. Cost-efficient. Sturdy.

Wood shake roofs offer a natural and traditional design and can also be a less expensive average cost roofing solution than premium roofing material alternatives.

Manufacturers design synthetic wood shingles to look like cedar wood shakes, with thick shingles and random slots. Synthetic wood shingles boast random colors and textures that provide a terrific accent for steep roof planes, turrets, and gables.

The following highlights characteristics of wood shake roofs:

  • Aesthetic – Wood roofs have a natural look due to their equally natural materials. No two roofs are identical since each wood shake is actual wood and will react to the elements differently.
  • Durability – Many wood shakes are pressure-treated to increase fire resistance, and this process extends the life of the shakes.
  • Energy-efficiency – Wood is a natural insulator for homes and attics with small openings that provide ventilation for your home.
  • Options – Shakes are manufactured using various wood types, with cedar as the most popular.

METAL ROOFING

Impact Resistant. Premium investment. Noise insulation.

Essentially any home or business can be accented with a modern metal roof. Metal roofing offers unprecedented choices in style, color, and profile.

Installing a metal roof can be one of the best investments a homeowner or building owner can make to increase a property’s value by delivering beauty, longevity, energy efficiency, and sustainability.

If you install a high-quality metal roof, it will likely be the last roof you will ever need for your home or business. Metal roofing requires minimal upkeep as it is resistant to cracking, shrinking, and eroding. It can also withstand extreme weather conditions, including heavy snow loads, hailstorms, and wildfires. Like all roofing options, it is your responsibility to ensure your metal roof is free from debris and to schedule an annual inspection to address any minor maintenance items that arise, such as cleaning and paint touch up.

There are two types of metal roofing – standing seam metal panels and metal shingles.

Gray metal roof panels with a blue sky background

A metal roof panel is an interlocking metal sheet with a minimum installed 3 square feet of weather exposure.

Black metal shingle roof

A metal shingle, by contrast, has an installed weather exposure of less than 3 square feet. To keep it simple, metal panels are larger than metal shingles.

Both metal panels and metal shingles must be installed to meet International Business Code (IBC) and local code standards. The IBC defines a steep slope roof as greater than 2 units vertical in 12 units horizontal (a 17% slope). Metal roofing has its minimum slope requirements. For example, the minimum deck slope for metal shingles is three units vertical in 12 units horizontal (a 25% slope).

Metal roofing is not flammable, and thus, it will not increase the probability of lightning striking your home. This allows the metal to be low-risk and a great option in areas known for severe weather as metal roofing can endure extreme abuse from the elements, including high winds, hail, and snow. When properly installed, metal roofing will also silence noise better than other roofing materials.

Additional benefits of metal roofing include:

  • Durable and rust-resistant
  • Energy efficient
  • Long-lasting
  • Valuable investment

There are several variables to estimate a metal roof’s cost for your home, including the pitch, shape, material, and design.

FLAT ROOF

Heat reflective. Energy-efficient. Weather-resistant.

Flat roofs (also referred to as low-slope roofs) have made significant improvements in the past few years. Metro City Roofing is your top choice for flat roof installation in the Denver metro area, Fort Collins, and Colorado Springs, Colorado. We perform unmatched installation, offer extended maintenance and services, and guarantee our work.

We offer and install many different types of common roofing materials and brand names, including Manville, Carlisle, Firestone, and more.

The following are the most common flat roof materials:

  • TPO – Thermoplastic polyolefin is designed for heat reflection and energy efficiency. It also resists chemical exposure and ultraviolet rays.
  • EPDM – Instead of just resisting heat, Ethylene Propylene diene monomer is designed to withstand all types of weather wear, including moisture, cold, and air pollution.
  • Modified Bitumen – Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene (SBS) is a modified bituminous membrane that combines the best of the other options by offering durability and heat resistance.
  • Elastomeric Silicone Coating – A roof coating offers a much lower price than a complete replacement and is a great choice only if the roof is in a salvageable condition.

TPO

Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) is a favored commercial, single-ply roofing product. This roofing material has numerous performance and installation advantages. As business and consumer demand increases for heat-reflective and energy efficient roofing systems, TPO single-ply roofing membranes provide resistance to ultraviolet, ozone, and chemical exposure and are available in various thicknesses.

The TPO membrane can be attached to a cover board with a bonding adhesive or mechanically fastened. Once the TPO membrane gets rolled out, a contractor will use a hot-air gun to weld all seams together. A commercial single-ply membrane roof should last 30 years if properly installed and maintained.

TPO is typically white and can reflect UV rays and heat away from a building, saving money from decreased energy usage to cool the building interior. By contrast, EPDM is typically black due to its natural dark color of the membrane.

EPDM

Ethylene propylene diene terpolymer, often referred to as EPDM, is an elastomeric polymer compounded with carbon black, processing oils, and various cross-linking and stabilizing agents. As a thermoset membrane that recaptures its shape after stretching, EPDM maintains its physical properties for decades.

EPDM is manufactured in large sheets and is available in various thicknesses in either black or white color. Manufacturers offer several installation options such as fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted. In each scenario, the seams of the roofing system seal with liquid adhesives or specially formulated tape.

Modified Bitumen Roofing

Determining when a steep slope roof needs repair or replacement is often straightforward. A homeowner or qualified professional may quickly spot missing shingles, wood rot, or other signs of decay. For a flat roof, however, it is often harder to identify issues. Identification usually requires a close inspection. Once close, any damage is easy to locate.

Modified bitumen is a more current update to built-up roofing, a traditional roofing material also known as “tar-and-gravel” roofing but made from asphalt. Modifiers are added to standard roofing asphalt, and bitumen is reinforced with fiberglass or polyester fiber matting to increase durability and strength.

The primary advantage that a modified bitumen roof has over other commercial roofing systems is its tear-resistance, based on a combination of fiberglass or polyester reinforcement layers. Bitumen is also inherently waterproof, and installation includes a base layer and cap sheet (available across many colors).

Silicone Elastomeric Roof Coating

A flat roof residential or commercial property will require a significant repair or replacement at some point in time. Repairing your roof is a great choice only if the roof is in a salvageable condition. It is essential to have your roof restored before any damages become more severe.

A vital advantage of a roof coating is the much lower price than a complete new roof replacement. A roof restoration will save you money and avoid a landfill from unnecessary waste since roof coatings get installed over an existing roof system.

A roof coating is low maintenance and will extend the lifespan of your roof and be a protective barrier against the elements by increasing UV protection to fight against the sun’s harmful rays and reduce the building’s energy costs. It limits expansion and contraction cycles that lead to premature failure of the underlying membrane in maintenance applications. A coating is also water-resistant and useful for ponding water situations.

Silicone cures faster than most other materials. Since they are moisture-cured and solids-based, silicone can be applied at virtually any temperature and often eliminate any need for primer.
