Total Roofing Services: Residential Roofing
Each system that is installed by Total Roofing reflects the professionalism of the Dallas based company. In addition to the exemplary workmanship of the team members, the materials used for every component are top quality. Whether the building is commercial or residential, its curb appeal is greatly increased by an attractive roof design. A sturdy, well built system raises property value as well. Various roofing types, which include shingle, wood shake, tile, slate and metal, are available through Total Roofing.
Shingles are among the most popular roofing materials on the market. Although they can be made of wood, slate, metal or tile, they are more often built from asphalt. This substance is comparatively inexpensive and offers a wide range of color options. Sometimes asphalt shingles are manufactured with a thicker appearance to resemble wood or slate. These roofing products, known as architectural shingles, are easy to install and add character to the structure.
Cedar or southern yellow pine is used to make wood shingles. They are even, smooth and long lasting. Many property owners love the classic look of wood and are willing to pay a little more for it. Since some customers prefer shakes for their rustic and realistic patterns, Total Roofing installs a wide array of wood products that give a "hand split" impression. Shakes are thicker than shingles, especially at the butt end, and they are always sawn on at least one side. During the manufacturing process, machines often create grooves to simulate handcrafted shakes.
Tile is another attractive roofing material with many benefits. Clay has been used for thousands of years and continues to form a strong, resistant tile. For a lighter, more shatterproof material, however, concrete tile is ideal. Both types are durable and hold up well during severe weather and extreme temperatures. Tile roofs can last for 100 years when well maintained.
Clearly the most expensive and sophisticated roofing material is slate. It is also the heaviest type of roof cover. With its wide array of colors and textures, slate is the optimal choice for the artistic designer. On the other hand, the most resistant and cost effective roofing material is metal. It doesn't burn or rot. Insects can't damage it, and mildew doesn't grow on it easily. While the sound of rain hitting a metal roof is pleasant for some individuals, others find it annoying. The biggest drawback is that metal can be dented by hail or the impact of debris during windstorms.
Regardless of the customer's personal preferences, Total Roofing can supply the desired materials and install them with perfection. The company's craftsmanship, customer service and reasonable rates surpass the expectations of both residential and commercial clients.
