The tricky part of installing a new roof always consists of finding the right company that knows how to install your preferred type. No two roofing companies are the same, and some specialize in certain styles while neglecting others. Here at R&R Roofing and Remodeling, we have the expertise to repair, replace and install any type of roof.

Asphalt, cedar, slate, metal or tile, flat or gable, we perform roof installation in Greenville, Delaware and the surrounding areas with great care and practiced hands. If you need a roof inspection and estimate for a new project, we are the roofing company to call!

Cedar Roofing

Cedar shingles are a highly customizable roofing solution with different grades, colors and sizes of cedar shingles, allowing for a wide range of pricing options. Roofs that utilize this material must be professionally installed to ensure the longevity and stability of the roofing system. Once installed, they can last over 30 years.

Cedar achieves this longevity with natural oils and other components that resist decomposition, fortifying the material against strong winds and moisture. They can shrug off inclement weather such as hurricanes, heavy rains, hail, and snowstorms.

Finally, choosing cedar means choosing the energy-efficient option. They provide natural insulation up to two times typical asphalt shingles, reducing energy bills and increasing savings.

Flat Roofing

All flat roofs are cost-efficient, using a slight grade and tight membrane to prevent leaks. When it comes to flat roof installation, you need a roofer who specializes in modified bitumen, modified PVC or EPDM and knows how best to install it. Our company specializes in each and can help you choose the suitable material for the job.

They are also space-efficient. Flat rooftops double as living spaces, gardens and solar panel farms. They also make it easier to add another story to the building. However, this style of rooftop does not handle extreme weather events as well as others and requires constant maintenance, resealing and recoating to ensure it is weather-proof.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs are a high durability roofing option due to the weight and strength of the material. All metal roofs can be built in either flat or gable styles but will require resealing and recoating like their flat roof counterparts.

Options include copper, zinc, aluminum and steel, each with its own benefits. Copper, zinc and aluminum cost more than steel, but the benefits of the material make them well worth the price. However, even the most resilient metal roofs are liable to rust or corrode if not properly maintained.

Copper roofing has long been a popular choice because of its status as the “quietest” metal, its longevity and its recyclable material. The soft structure means that it can take plenty of damage without puncturing and renders it not well suited to frequent or high-volume hail. Copper also expands and contracts to depend on the temperature, which means it is better suited for temperate environments.
Zinc roofing is a soft yet highly resilient metal due to its natural self-healing patina (coat) of zinc oxide. It’s even easier to recycle than steel or copper due to a low melting point, too. The only issues with zinc are aesthetic. Homeowners must paint any rooftop made of zinc, if possible. Unpainted zinc leaves an unseemly chalk residue and water spots that might hurt curbside appeal.
Aluminum roofing is a cheaper metal roofing solution with similar benefits to copper roofing but requires more upkeep and does not last as long on average. We recommend aluminum for coastal climates because of its natural salt corrosion resistance, provided by a patina of aluminum oxide.
Steel is the cheapest option but is liable to rust and corrode. Manufacturers have devised protective measures to ensure they last longer against the weather. Steel comes in three forms: Galvanized, Galvalume and Weathering. For practical purposes, the first two see the most use. Galvanized steel is the most common and uses a zinc coating to extend the life of the steel. Galvalume provides a similar coat but mixes in aluminum to give a patina of aluminum oxide. Both of these products will provide a sturdy, stable, storm-proof rooftop, but also require regular resealing and recoating to ensure they are well-protected.

Tile Roofing

We suggest slate or tile roofing if you’re looking for a sturdy, non-metal option for your next roof replacement. The upfront investment might cost more because both possibilities are heavy and require reinforced roofs to support. But once installed, they are low maintenance and highly resilient.

Slate has the highest durability of man-made roofing materials as it is just natural stone. It’s non-combustible resistant to mold and severe weather conditions. Slate roofs can crack due to an extreme temperature fluctuation combined with too much water, but it is pretty rare, and they will otherwise shrug off any weathering.
Conversely, terracotta tile roofing has unmatched durability against fire, mold, pests and weather. It provides natural insulation and air circulation that keeps homes cool during warm days and warm on cool days. Tile requires no resealing or recoating, making this the perfect material for homeowners searching for a low-maintenance roof.
