Materials like shingle, slate, tile and wood shake offer the best protection for steep slope commercial roofs – those with a pitch above 2:12” (or a rise of more than 2 inches for every 12 inches horizontal length).
Asphalt shingles cover 80% of steep sloped roofs in the United States. The middle and high end types of shingle – architectural and designer shingles – feature two or more layers of fiberglass to offer the improved wind resistance, extended durability and superior protection necessary for commercial buildings. Our shingles are produced by the highest quality brands – CertainTeed, GAF, Owens Corning, and IKO.
Natural slate, the most durable material on the market, provides long lasting beauty, rustic looks and the architectural hint of luxurious European castles. At A+ Roofing we offer the finest natural black slate from Buckingham, Virginia; green, purple and mottled green slate from Vermont and red slate from New York.
Imitation slate offers the durability and beauty of natural slate in 80% recycled material and less than half the weight. We offer the most trusted names in the brand – EcoStar, InSpire Roofing and DaVinci.
Clay and concrete tile are another durable and eco-friendly option to consider with generous warranties (of 75 years or the lifetime of the tiles) as well as excellent resistance to wind and hail storms. Our tile collection is produced by leading brands like Ludowici, the largest manufacturer of clay tiles in Europe and North America, and Vande Hey Raleigh.
