We Install All Types of Roofs
At NexGen, we’re knowledgeable and experienced installing all types of roofing systems. In addition to traditional asphalt shingled roofs, we’re also skilled at installing metal, wood, and low-sloped roofing systems.
Asphalt roofs are an American invention (circa 1901). By far the most common type of roofing system in North America, asphalt roofs offer a better value for most homeowners than their more expensive alternatives (metal or wood).
Unless you’re looking for the improved aesthetics of a wood-shingled roof, or the increased energy efficiency of a metal roof, you’ll most likely want an asphalt roof. While less durable than metal or wood roofs, asphalt roofs are relatively cheap, attractive, and can still provide quality protection (with the right materials and the right installers).
As CertainTeed® SELECT ShingleMaster, we guarantee a top quality CertainTeed® asphalt roofing system installed by certified professionals. All of our asphalt roofing jobs include a CertainTeed® SureStart Plus® 4-star warranty.
Metal roofs are perfect for homeowners who can afford a long-term investment into their homes. While initially more expensive than traditional asphalt roofing systems, metal roofs are extremely resilient and will easily last 3 times longer than asphalt shingles.
The initial benefits are also much better. Extremely energy efficient, you’ll notice a significant drop in your utility bills. With their reflective surface, they’ll reflect the sun’s heat in the summer, and with their slick surface, they’ll repel snow and ice during the winter.
Metal roofs are very safe too. Metal, unlike asphalt or wood shingles, will never catch fire. And they’re extremely resilient. While hail is a major cause of roof damage with asphalt shingles, a metal roof can take the impact with no significant damage.
Wood roofs come in many different styles: shingle and shake, White Cyprus and Red Cedar. For the aesthetician, there are simply no better options. When you opt for a wood roofing system, you’re guaranteed to the have best house on the block—instantly.
While some modern wood shingles and shakes are pressure treated with fire retardant chemicals, they’re still more vulnerable to fire than other roofing systems. They’re also vulnerable to fungus and insect damage, which adds to their maintenance costs.
But for a homeowner who can afford an expensive install and high maintenance costs, wood roofs are unrivalled in their attractiveness and durability. Wood roofs, with proper maintenance, can last a lifetime. They’re also great against impact damage—like hail—and they can easily withstand winds of over 200+ mph.
Roofs with low slopes require special types of roofing systems. Asphalt shingle roofs work when there’s a significant slope (pitch), which allows the water to flow down the shingles. But with a flat roof, you need a completely different style.
When installing a low-slope roofing system, we’ll roll out a membrane of Polyglass® modified bitumen, bond the seams, and create an airtight, waterproof seal. This style of roof will ensure that—even without a significant pitch—you’ll still have a leak-free roof.
We Install Skylights too!
Skylights let the sun’s rays fill your home with natural sunlight. The best time to install a skylight is during a roof replacement. Skylights are also much cheaper to install than you might imagine and can really increase your home’s aesthetic appeal—both inside and out!
