Asphalt & asphalt fiberglass roofing

Asphalt shingles are a classic and popular roofing material. They’re highly versatile and customizable so you can pick out a color that matches your style. You can even get asphalt shingles that imitate other materials like wood and slate! Nowadays, most asphalt shingles are embedded with a fiberglass mat to provide extra strength, durability, and tear resistance.

Composite Roofing

Looking for durability and affordability? Composite roofing might be just what you need. Composite shingles are made from a combination of materials selected for their strength and low-cost. Oftentimes these shingles are crafted from rubber and resin taken from recycled tires–neat, huh? The end product is a one-of-a-kind shingle that looks just like slate but at a fraction of the price and a much longer lifespan.

Energy-efficient shingles

Interested in lowering your energy bills and boosting your home’s energy efficiency? ENERGY STAR® roofing shingles are as environmentally-friendly as they are budget-friendly. Instead of absorbing intense solar rays which cause your AC to work harder, energy-efficient shingles reflect the sun back into the atmosphere. These high-tech shingles lower your roof’s surface temperature by as much as 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Not only will you see lower energy bills, but your roof won’t degrade as quickly from UV damage. It’s a win-win!

Flat roofing

Flat roofs and low-slope roofs come their own unique challenges. For one, they’re prone to leaking, which puts the rest of the building in danger of water damage, flooding, and mold. Yuck! To avoid springing a leak (or worse), it’s important to hire skilled installers to repair, replace or install flat roofing. Our roofing crew at Richmond Exteriors uses all the proper equipment, techniques, and attention to detail necessary to install a strong, water-tight flat roof. Our flat roofs come in a variety of materials like EPDM rubber roofing, TPO (thermo-polyolefin) roofing, and PVC roofing. If you’re unsure of what roof material option is best for your building, our knowledgeable staff is more than happy to help you decide!  

Rubber roofing

Rubbing roofing is on the cutting edge of new roofing technology. It was recently created by engineers looking to strike the perfect balance for durability and water-resistance. While traditional rubber roofing didn’t have these properties, newly invented rubber membrane roofs (also called “ethylene propylene diene monomer roofing” or “EPDM roofing”) is as stable and long-lasting as it is watertight. These advantages make it the perfect option for both flat roofs and low-slope roofs. In fact, many commercial buildings take advantage of rubbing roofing!

Professional and courteous - from initial call to quotation to installation. The installers checked in to ensure they had a complete understanding of the scope of work and checked in again before leaving to make sure everything was to my satisfaction. They gladly, and quickly, took care of a couple of requested changes before departing the job site.

Very pleased with the new roof and sky light that was installed. Every aspect was handled professionally, starting with the initial visit from Evan Richmond all the way thru to the completed project. Definitely would use them again or recommend them to someone else.
