Why Choose Metal Roofing?

Greenlee Construction believes that there are many advantages to using metal roofing for your needs. For instance, metal roofing is quite lightweight. This makes metal roofing an ideal roofing material if you live in area that is prone to natural disasters or in a colder climate with heavy snow and ice coverage.

Greenlee Construction also recommends metal roofing because of its optimal weight to strength ratio and impressive flexibility. Metal roofing is also a great choice due to its resistance against wind and hailstorms. Interestingly, most metal roofing materials such as copper and aluminium consist of 95% biodegradable alloys which make it a great option if you are concerned about the environmental impact of your roof.

Metal roofing is energy and labour efficient and has minimal upkeep requirements. However, installation of metal roofing is not foolproof. The inefficient use of compounds and their subsequent mixing can exacerbate erosion thereby shortening the lifespan of your Bend roof. That is why installation by a certified professional installer such as Greenlee Construction is incredibly important.

Flat Roofing

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that your home isn’t really complete without a fully functioning roof, this is particularly true if your home happens to be protected by a flat roof. The fact of the matter is that a minor problem in another part of your home may be an annoyance but on your roof, it is something altogether more serious. Whether you consider your flat roof to be the first or last line of defense for your home, the fact remains that even the smallest discrepancy can cause serious problems that may cost thousands and take months to repair. The easiest way of making sure that a small roofing issue doesn’t turn into a major headache is by having it maintained and inspected regularly.

Common Flat Roof Problems

There is a wide range of factors that explain why your home’s flat roof may experience problems from time to time. In general, these issues often involve pooled water. This is water that puddles on your roof for 48 hours or more, usually after heavy rainfall, and can begin to cause serious problems for your home. Other common causes of leaks include roof drains, skylight, parapets and a range of other penetrations. While less common than the reasons mentioned above, material shortage is another issue that can cause major headaches for your home’s roof. The reason for this that when a rubber membrane shrinks it can pull off parapet walls.

Benefits of Metal Flat Roofs

The true test of the popularity of metal flat roofs can be seen by virtue of the fact that it has been used for many decades. In this time, it has proven to be a durable and relatively eco-friendly option for homeowners who want a long-lasting material that won’t adversely affect the environment. More recently, metal roofs have started to be replaced by aluminum but metal still remains a reliable choice for homeowners looking for a sturdy and reliable roofing material.

Shingle Roofs

Chances are that if you are reading this page then you are strongly considering having your home’s roofing system changed or installed for the first time or repaired. If this is the case then you need to contact Greenlee Construction today. Our skilled and dedicated approach to shingle roofing may be envied by many of our competitors but the fact of the matter is that it is rivalled by very few. With a wealth of experience in all areas of shingle roofing, there is no task too big or challenging for our certified specialists. Don’t take chances with inferior roofing service providers when the number one team in the area is right here for you to use. Trust us, you won’t regret it.

Limit Foot Traffic

If there is one message that we think every single one of our residential clients should take on board it is this: keep foot traffic on your home’s shingle roof to an absolute minimum. The simple fact of the matter that even the best designed, most-well maintained and regularly inspected shingle roof can be undone by walking on your roof too frequently. Whether it is to repair a satellite dish, or rescue a lost kitten, we understand that from time to time it may be necessary to get on top of your home’s roof. However, if these visits become too regular an occurrence then there is a very real chance that your shingles lifespan will be reduced considerably. Don’t make this mistake, instead stay off your roof.

Signs That Your Roof’s Shingles Need Replacing

If your shingle roof is less than ten years old then you might think that there is no need to have an inspection. However, the fact of the matter is that on certain occasions your shingled roof may have aged prematurely and may need to be replaced. One of the added benefits of having your shingled roof repaired or maintained regularly is that it allows us to detect if any problems exist. Some of the most obvious indicators that we will look out for include:

  • Missing shingles
  • Folded shingles
  • Rain removing shingle granules during heavy rainfall
  • Mold growing on the roof
  • Areas of your home’s roof that appear dented and damaged
  • Water dripping through the roof into your home’s attic
  • Daylight seeping through the roof when looking into the attic

Tile Roofing

If you are looking to enhance the look and feel of your home’s tiled roofing system, you need to strongly consider the many benefits offered by Greenlee Construction’s high-quality service. Whether it is installing slate tiles, repairing clay ones or maintaining terracotta tiles, you need to consider how our skilled team’s service can help you. Add in our affordable prices, flexible payment plans and convenient operating hours, there really is no job too big or task too small for our roofing team. Don’t take chances with inferior roofing services when the number one team in the area is here and available for you to use.

Varied Tile Styles

At Greenlee Construction, we offer a wide range of tile styles that can add immediate and lasting value to your home’s roof quickly and effectively. Five of our most popular tile styles include:

Spanish Tiles

If you are looking for a durable yet elegant tile then our Spanish tile might be the perfect choice for you. Spanish tiles look like rows on waves with wide water courses between the tiles. In general, Spanish tiles are located in warmer locations, like Spain, where rain may be unusual but when it does arrive, it’s heavy. Heavy downpours can make light of lesser materials that can be saturated damaged. The best materials for Spanish tiles include clay, terracotta and concrete varieties.

Scandia

In many ways Scandia tiles are Spanish tiles but simply turned upside down. However, unlike Spanish tiles, this type of tile has the visual effect of sharp ridges with wide, smooth water courses. On average, the cost of a Scandia tile will be approximately the same as our Spanish tiled option.

Double Roman

At first glance, a Double Roman tile may look like a Spanish tile but the reality of the situation is that, while looking similar to the waves on Spanish tiles, the Roman version has distinct ribs that are extremely pronounced. Double Roman tiles are extremely popular in the Mediterranean area as their unique shape and dimension fits narrow roofs perfectly. In general, these types of tiles are made from concrete but can also be made from clay and terracotta.

Flat Shake

Usually found in concrete, flat shake tiles are usually designed and built to resemble a number of shingle styles including granulated asphalt and wood shake. These flat shake tiles contain flat surfaces which is smooth enough to ensure that any rain water isn’t trapped. The adaptability and flexibility of this type of tile makes it a great choice for locations with changeable weather conditions.

French Tile

Referred by some to profile, the French tile is often a reversed version of the Roman Double with generous indents where the humps would be located. This means that the amount of water absorbed and shed is lowered considerably.

Slate Roofing

When it comes to value for money and long-lasting durability, very few roofing materials offer as many wide-ranging benefits as slate. The simple fact of the matter is that slate has an elegant and stylish feel to it, but on top of that, it is also a really durable and long-lasting material that, if maintained correctly, could last over one hundred years for your home. This makes it the perfect choice for homeowners who have had their home in the family for many decades and want to pass on this home to future generations. So, if you are looking for a roofing type that gives you a little bit of everything then you need to call Greenlee Construction today and allow our skilled and diligent team to provide your home with our exemplary slate roofing service.

Is it Possible to Repair a Slate Roof?

The simple answer to this question is yes. However, it is important to remember that if you want your roof repaired, then you need to invest in a professional roofing contractor you can trust. The fact of the matter is that by investing in Greenlee Construction’s tried and trusted roofing repair service, you can have your slate roof repaired at any time. Having regular, professional and thorough slate roof inspections from Greenlee Construction means that your slate can remain in the best possible condition for as long as possible and will also reduce your roof’s maintenance and repair needs.

Slate Versus Shingle Roofing

If you want a roofing material that is as close to permanent as possible, it is slate. On average, most homeowners will only need to install a slate roof once in their lifetime. By contrast, a shingle roof may need to be replaced anywhere from three to four times. Another advantage of slate roofing is its ability to increase your home’s resale value straight away. The natural beauty and durability of slate means that it can enhance the architectural style of your home for longer, ensuring that your home’s roof maintains the same pristine appearance for longer. Another benefit that slate has over shingle is its natural ability to be fire resistant and its low water absorption level makes it very resistant to frost and freezing damage.

How Do You Prepare for a Slate Roof Installation in Your Home?

One important point to remember is that slate is an extremely heavy product and could end up adding an additional 500 pounds to your roof. So, if your home is not specifically engineered and designed for a slate roof then you will definitely need to have a structural engineer look at it right away. By doing so, you can ensure that your roof will be able to hold the weight of your home’s slate roofing.
