Looking at different options is the key toward finding the most fitting roof for your home. When it comes to DC roofing, it’s important that you’re aware of all the choices offered by your roofing contractor.
As the most trusted among roofing companies in Washington DC, we at Maggio Roofing make it a point to provide our clients with high-grade materials. We guarantee the superior performance of our products, from flat roofs to metal roofs.
For flat roofs, we offer FiberTite®, a DuPont Elvaloy®–based roofing. It’s the only roofing membrane that’s better than the ASTM D 6754-2 standard for Elvaloy KEE Content. It’s composed of the roofing industry’s highest ketone ethylene ester, which makes it flexible and resistant to chemicals and ultraviolet rays.
When it comes to shingles, we use GAF and CertainTeed.
GAF offers Timberline® Prestique® Lifetime High Definition® Shingles, which are 32% thicker than conventional architectural shingles. They are available in different colors, which can definitely change your home’s look. Their beauty can also boost your home’s resale value. Underwriters Laboratories gave them a class A fire rating. These shingles can also withstand winds up to 130 mph, thanks to the Dura Grip® adhesive, which holds shingles in place.
Architectural roofing shingles are traditionally composed of ceramic-coated mineral granules and a fiberglass mat base. CertainTeed’s shingles offer a different kind of allure that creates a 3-D effect. CertainTeed’s Presidential Shake™ TL simulates the look of wood. Some of CertainTeed’s shingles can also accentuate a particular roof section, like CertainTeed’s Carriage House™, which is perfect for steeply pitched roofs.
Slate remains to be a popular choice among homeowners because of its life span of up to 120 years. Moreover, the main kinds of slate that are still on older slate roofs in the Washington Metro region are Vermont, Pennsylvania, Buckingham-Virginia, and Del Carmen “Blue Black.”
We offer the Terne II, a classic Terne-coated steel known for its corrosion resistance to different environments. Its historic style makes it suitable for restoration projects. We also offer aluminum roofing that comes with a 35-year paint warranty, a lifetime weather-tightness warranty, and over 20 paint options. We also have copper roofing if you’re looking for affordability, low maintenance, and simple elegance.
