metal_roofing

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is possibly the most resilient material for your roof; it does not deteriorate with exposure to the elements, such as the sun’s rays or heavy rain. Metal roofing is especially strong because it is coated with a metallic finish of either Zinc or Aluminum, which makes it resistant to rust. Metal roofing has a 170km an hour wind rating, which means that it can withstand even an F2 tornado. Furthermore, a metal roof will reflect heat efficiently such that it insulates during the winter and cools during the summer. When it comes to extreme weather, metal roofing will NOT increase the chance of being struck by lightning. In fact, if struck, it will be able to spread the electrical currents safely over the roof without it penetrating into the house. The metal roof is also non combustible and non flammable, so you have a low risk of receiving damage to your house in such conditions.
torch_on

SBS 2 Ply Torch-On

SBS 2 Ply Torch On roofing systems are available on pitched and flat roof buildings. Torch-On roofs are made up of layers of fiberglass and polyester with bitumen that are added to the tar and gravel layering system. The origin of the name comes from the next step in the process: the extra sheets are torched on during the installation process using large flame-throwing torches that melt the asphalt at the seams to link them together. The final effect is the vulcanization of a large rubber sheet onto a fiberglass base. Due to this unique installation process, torch-on roofs offer extra durability and resistance to a flat and sloped roof. With the proper maintenance, sbs torch on roofs can last up to 20 years and more. In Awe Roofing offers regular inspections and proper roof maintenance intended to extend the useful life of your roof. Avoid common problems that can result in the need to replace the entire roof.
flat-roofing

Flat Roofing

A flat roof is a nearly horizontal roof with just enough pitch to allow for water drainage. There are several different types of flat roofs, all of which require regular maintenance, repair and eventually replacement. On the other hand, if well taken care of by a flat roofing contractor, a flat roof should have a span duration of approximately 25 years. In Awe Roofing specializes in re-roofing and repairing flat roofs for residential and commercial buildings. We service all types of flat roofs including multiple-ply, TPO, PVC, and EPDM, single-ply membranes, and green roofs. To guarantee a long life for any flat roofing system, we advise proper maintenance for all types of flat roofs. This includes removing free and embedded fragments, removing brushwood and moss, clearing drains and inspecting seams, connection points, flashings and penetrations for any damage. Not every flat roof needs to be re-roofed. We only recommend re-roofing if the roofing system has failed, or if it is incorrectly installed the first time around. If you own a home or building with a flat roof, In Awe Roofing will assess the roof and decide whether it needs complete re-roof work or regular maintenance and repairs. At In Awe Roofing, we specialize in re-roofing and repairing flat and low slop roofing systems.

Cedar Shakes & Shingles

Wood Shingle and Shakes

Wood shingles that are rustic and coarse are called shakes. They come in varying sizes and lengths of 16, 18 and 24 inches. Nailing wood shingles is finished in a way that enables air flow, while shakes are laid so that they form a tight surface. Both methods are devised to ensure durability and withstand decay. Treatment of wood shingles and shakes can slow down natural weathering processes; though expect a ¼ inch or more to be lost over the period of a century. Keep in mind that wood shingles and shakes are easy to repair and treat.

Cedar Shingles

Shingles have a smooth sawn backs and fronts. Shingles are produced by sawing blocks on a shingle machine, tilting the block each cut to manufacture tapered pieces and then trimming edges.

roof_sheathing

Roof Sheathing

Roof sheathing provides the main protection and insulation of your home or office. The stages and various materials used for sheathing a roof vary between different roofing styles, yet there are some frequent mistakes made that are generic among unprofessional or inexperienced roofers. Such mistakes include: insufficient fastening of roof sheathing, (this can lead to the collapse of a building during a windstorm), not differentiating between coastal and non-coastal fastener requirements, attaching sheathing upside down, not aligning the roof sheathing perpendicular to roof rafters as required, but parallel to roof edging, panels of sheathing not meeting in truss and/or rafter center and not staggering panels. And let’s not forget, not nailing in the correct areas or nailing in nothing at all.
roof_underlayment

Roof Underlayment

All roofing materials that are built for low slope and steep slopes are considered water shedding devices. They are NOT “Water Proofing”, even though many people are under the impression that they are. Because such roofing supplies for low slope or steep slopes are NOT WATER-PROOFING, it is imperative to create a secondary line of defence against water ingress into the structure. This second line of defence is generally the roofing underlayment that is installed below the primary roof covering. Almost all manufacturers make it mandatory to install underlay to get a manufacturer’s warranty. That is why it is essential to install roof underlay.
