Any new roof will require construction with a variety of roofing systems. They may include materials such as metal roofing; build up of a roofing membrane or single ply roofing such as asphalt. Tiger Roofing only works with proven products represented by quality manufacturers.

Services Include:

Roof Auditing

Our roof audits provide a baseline examination of your existing roof condition. Cost and durability will be provided, however aesthetics and architectural design are also important.

Asphalt Shingles

 This type of shingle is the most commonly used for a steep sloped or pitched roofs because they offer the most economical and low maintenance alternative to products such as slate, wood shingle and tile roofing products. Tiger roofing offers a wide variety of colors, designs and several different manufacturers to choose from based on your needs. The nice thing about asphalt shingles is they can be organic, fiberglass or even mimic architectural slate or cedar shakes. Shingle roofs generally last for 20-50 years, however that all depends on the quality of the installation and the materials being installed. Asphalt shingles are also flexible enough to last in most weather conditions.

Asphalt Membrane

 Asphalt membrane (aka roll roofing) is an inexpensive roofing material commonly used on buildings that have a sloped roof pitch. This material is basically the same material used in asphalt shingles. It is typically an organic felt or fiberglass mat that is saturated with asphalt and then faced with granular stone aggregate. It is much lighter than asphalt shingles because it must be rolled for shipment. Its uses are restricted to certain applications because of its design. It’s an inexpensive, but temporary alternative to shingle roofing material. The wide width of this roofing material makes it vulnerable to temperature induced tearing as it expands and contracts.

Re-Roofing / Tear-Offs

When your roofing systems fail, it may be necessary to install a new roof. Your roof may fail because of a number of factors, including age, severe weather conditions, poor workmanship or installation of repairs, defective materials or improper specifications. A re-roof is done only if you have a solid roof structure and materials that are reaching the end of their life expectancy but not badly deteriorated. Most building codes will allow you to install a new layer of shingles over your existing roof. This is done primarily as a cost cutting measure and may not be right for every application. If you’re looking for a better roofing system with a better warranty, a tear-off is almost always worth the added cost.
A tear-off is for a customer that has roof structure damage that is under the main roofing system. This could mean underlay decking, beams, rafters or roof insulation that has weakened or collapsed. A roof that already has 2 or more layers of shingles and cannot handle the weight of an additional roofing system is definitely a candidate for a tear-off. Be extremely careful and weigh your options for safety and structural reasons. If we deem it necessary for the above reasons, we will tear off your entire roof, replace the decking, beams, or whatever has deteriorated and install an entirely new roofing system.

Flat Roofs

A flat roof is a type of covering for a horizontal or nearly horizontal sloped or pitched roof.

Membrane Roofing for Flat Roofs

A flat roof or membrane roof is installed on low pitch or horizontal roofs. Membranes and synthetic rubber roofing compounds outperform tar and gravel roofing materials and make leak detection much easier. Membrane roofing materials are basically seamless and fight UV damage. Flat roof membranes are most commonly used in commercial applications, however have many residential uses as well. Materials that cover flat roofs, allow water to run off from a slight inclination or camber, basically into a gutter system. The water from flat roofs like on a shed sometimes just flows freely off the edge of the roof. Using a gutter type system has its advantages in keeping both walls and foundations dry.

Synthetic Membranes

Using synthetic membranes has pretty much eliminated the need for gravel on roofs. Most of the top performing materials are made from synthetic rubber roofing compounds. These are commonly referred to as EPDM or CSPE materials. These types of membranes work best where old rolled asphalt materials, hot mopped asphalt or even shingles were used before. One other advantage to this membrane is that many of the new products are actually glued down to the roof sheathing. They also come in widths of up to 50 feet and have materials built in that resist UV degradation. This membrane may be able to virtually cover your house with one piece of roofing material. No seams, no leaks.
