Types of Roofing Materials
Emmons specializes in the installation of asphalt roofing shingles. We offer standard, three-tab asphalt and architectural, dimensional asphalt shingles. We also install metal roofing systems that provide incredibly durable protection for your home.
Standard Three-Tab Asphalt Shingles
Three-tab asphalt shingles are the most popular type of residential roofing material because they are affordable, extremely durable, and have a traditional aesthetic. Most homeowners replace their roof with the same style they had previously to keep a consistent look and feel. They also come in a variety of colors and textures for those that want to add a little character to their home.
Architectural and Dimensional Shingles
Architectural asphalt shingles have gained popularity in recent years because they add a more dimensional effect to an otherwise flat surface. They are also a little thinker than the three-tab shingle, thus providing a little more protection. Architectural shingles come in a variety of colors and random or repeating patterns to create a unique look for your home. They cost a little more but last longer.
A metal roof is very durable, energy-efficient, and lightweight. Metal roofing materials can be made with a range of metals, including aluminum, copper, steel, tin, and zinc. They come in a variety of styles from interlocking standing seam panels, to shakes, and even an eye-catching clay tile look. The prices range widely for metal roofs based on the size of the roof, type of metal, and the style you choose.
We Can Replace Any Style Roof
Every home has characteristics that make it unique and there is no exception for your roof. Whether you have a typical A-framed gable roof, multiple dormers, or a flat roof, the expert roof replacement team at Emmons has you covered.
Gable / Peaked Roofs
This standard style of roof can be found throughout the Delaware Valley and is easily recognized by its triangular shape. They can utilize any type of roofing material. Gable roofs easily shed water and snow and more easily maintained than more complex roof designs.
Cross Gabled Roofs
Cross gabled roofs are made up of intersecting gables that meet at a right angle. The heights and pitches can be the same or different. Any time there are seams in a roof, there is a need for flashing to thwart off any potential water infiltration.
A more stable version of a gabled roof, a hip roof slopes on all 4 sides. The sides match in length and form a ridge at the top. These are great roofs for windy and snowy areas. Just about any type of roofing material can be used on a hip roof as well.
Mansard & Gambrel Roofs
These roofs typically run down the sides of a home and uses two different slopes. The upper slope is lower and more standard in pitch while the lower part is practically vertical. A mansard roof has four sides while a gambrel roof only has two sides.
Simply put, these roofs have little to no pitch at all. Shingles are not recommended for flat roofs. Most commonly found on commercial buildings they would use EPDM (rubber), TPO (thermoplastic) or BUR (built-up roofing). Many homeowners use a flat roof for additions.
