Residential Roofing in Hampton Roads
You may live in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Newport News, Hampton, Yorktown, Poquoson, Pungo, Virginia Beach or an area surrounding Hampton Roads such as Nags Head or The Outer Banks of North Carolina. Well, if you do then you know the type of severe storms that invade the seven cities on a yearly basis.
There are many different types of buildings and structures in the Hampton Roads area. There are also many unique types of roofing systems each one designed for multiple roof slopes and they are made in different ways for various timeframes of longevity.
Residential roofs are more common and your residential home may require a shingle roof which is for steep roof slopes only. You may also have a low sloped flat roof on your structure that will require a membrane type of roofing system. Both, asphalt shingles (a steep sloped roofing system) and TPO membrane roofing (a low sloped roofing system) are used on residential and commercial living structures. Commercial buildings are just built to higher standards and on commonly larger budgets.
Shingles are the most common because they are a bought at a lower cost than other higher grade roofing products. They are also very cost effective considering the warranties now dished out by shingle manufacturers. In the past decade, GAF and other manufacturers started offering a lifetime warranty on standard 30 year Architectural Shingles. This is your average grade of shingle which is one of the most commonly installed roofing product in the USA.
Flat roof membrane systems such as EPDM rubber roofing or TPO membrane roofing are mainly installed on roofs that are at a very low slope or roofs slopes that are zero which are totally flat roofs. Any flat roof can still be sloped to allow proper drainage. The slope is created with tapered insulation.
Many roofing companies in the Hampton Roads area will install a flat roof membrane using a method known as mechanically attached. With the heavy storm winds that plaque us within the Hampton Roads area this can be a mistake. All flat roofs installed in high wind areas should always be attached using the fully adhered method with oil base glue.
