What We Do
Standing Seam Steel (double lock):
Considered by many to be the “Cadillac” of roofing, we roll out our roofing panels on site and machine lock them together once on the roof with a seamer. Not to be confused with “snap lock,” the double lock is a tighter finish and the fasteners that hold each panel down are hidden under the adjacent panel for a clean, water tight roof.
The 35 year warranteed Kynar paint finish and 20 year warranteed galvalume finish hold up through tough weather conditions year after year. Standing seam roofing can be costly, and tends to work best with roofs that have fewer dormers and angles.
Screw Down Steel:
Screw down steel is thinner than standing seam, usually coming in 28 gauge or 29 gauge with a 40 year paint warranty. This type of roofing is installed with screws that go through the panels and self-seal with UV resistant, 40 year warranteed rubber grommets.
Asphalt shingles are an old favorite due to versatility and quality. Shingles are warrantied from 30 to 50 years, and all of our installs are “hurricane nailed” with at least 6 nails per shingle. Up to two layers of shingles can be installed on a roof, and they work great on both complex roofs with dormers and valleys or simple designs.
Flat Roofing (EPDM or TPO):
Larger commercial buildings tend to go with EPDM or TPO roofing. EPDM is a black rubber that is sealed with an adhesive, while TPO is bright white and is “heat welded” together at the seams. EPDM has been around for about 60 years and TPO for about 20.
We specialize in solar electricity (also known as solar Photovoltaic, or solar PV) installations. Solar electricity is produced when sunlight hits solar panels and produces an electric current which is used to power your home or building. We install solar for all types of users including residential, agricultural, commercial, industrial, and municipal. We also have partnered with Sungage Financial to offer our clients quick and easy financing, and can help steer you towards grants that may be available for your project.
The 3 functional types of solar PV we install are:
1/ GRID-TIE: A grid tied solar installation is the most simple, affordable, and common type of solar PV system. The existing utility remains in effect but you only use it at night or when the sun isn’t producing enough power. If your solar array is producing excess power, this power goes into the grid and you attain credits that are used later to offset your electric bill. The energy credits are valid for one year. Depending on the inverter you choose, some grid tie PV arrays will continue to function when the grid goes down but some do not.
2/ OFF-GRID: An off grid system is not tied to the grid and relies on excess power stored in batteries to use during night or times of energy use that exceeds the energy being produced from the solar array. The type and size of battery depends on how much power you will need and for how long; factors which we are happy to help you figure out. Off grid solar systems are sometimes coupled with backup generators as well.
3/ HYBRID: A hybrid solar system is one that is both tied to the grid but also has battery back up and can function at night or when the grid is down due to a power outage.
All of these systems use solar panels that can be mounted on the roof or on the ground or sometimes both, depending on the optimal configuration for the location.
Solar panels can be mounted on all roof types (shingles, steel, rubber) and angles including steep pitched, low pitched, and flat roofs.
When a roof is not the ideal location for panels due to roof orientation and/or shade, ground mounted solar arrays can be a better option.
