Choosing Roof Supplies
Depending upon whether your roof is residential or commercial, plus the shape and slope of your roof, your required roofing materials will be different.
Roof tiles and shingles (including asphalt shingles for waterproofing) along with roof deck protection and attic ventilation will be very important to any roofing project. We also carry a wide selection of roof coatings
and roofing panels.
Whether you’ve got metal roofing, or sloped roofing, it’s best to hire a professional for consult and install.
Roll roofing is an oil-based asphalt roofing material that comes in rolls of 100 square feet. This mineral-surfaced roofing material, or MSR, is inexpensive and easy to install.
• This roofing material is suitable for low-sloped roofs
• Roll roofing works best with outbuildings like work sheds, barns and garages
Don’t Forget to Vent
An important part of keeping everything nice and dry is including adequate roof vents and/or attic ventilation, including soffits that work correctly. Properly routed and installed intake and exhaust parts are also important to a good ventilation system. Solar attic fans are a newer feature that requires less electricity to run. Other types include power roof vents that also have Wi-Fi and smartphone connectivity if you’re looking to make your ventilation system a little smarter.
