Types of Specialty Roofing We Work On
At Heidler, we always do our best to make roof replacements or repairs as simple as possible for your specialty roof. We'll take the time to explain your options and advise you on the best roofing system for your needs based on your building's geography, the condition of your current roof, your current budget, and many other factors. Contact us now to get an estimate, or keep reading to learn more about the specialty roofing types we frequently repair or replace.
Natural and Synthetic Slate Roofing
Durable and distinguished, slate roofing has graced many stately homes and buildings, particularly in the Northeastern U.S. This low-maintenance, virtually indestructible material can endure for more than 100 years. However, slate can be very heavy, so it might not be the best choice for every project. New, lighter synthetic materials are now available that offer the natural look of slate without the weight. Reach out to us today to find out which option fits your next roofing project best.
When you're looking for a more rustic yet refined-looking roof style, cedar roofing can often be a great solution. Unlike typical roofing, cedarwood is durable against the elements, rotting, and pests like termites! In addition, the wood helps improve the insulation of your building, making it a great energy-efficient option. We just advise that if you go with this option, you give us a call to help with regular maintenance to keep mold and mildew from forming.
Historical Building Roofing
Preserving the look and feel of your historical building can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be when you work with professional roofers like Heidler! Here at Heidler, we utilize historically faithful restoration methods for your building. We use authentic materials and craftsmanship to preserve or restore the original architectural character of your vintage facilities while also providing state-of-the-art, modern roofing functionality.
Steep Slope Roofing
The average pitch for commercial and residential roofing ranges anywhere between an angle of 0 degrees or 43 degrees. But sometimes, specialty roofing is at a much larger angle that doesn't allow roofers to access it as easily. Luckily, Heidler Roofing deals with these situations a lot, and we often work with challenging roofing materials and shapes. So, if you have a building that has a steep-sloped roof, let us know, and we'll be happy to help.
While it's one of the least common types of specialty roofing, copper roofing is definitely rising in popularity because it is one of the most attractive roofing options. Copper roofing is easy to install, lightweight, durable, and efficient at reflecting light to keep your cooling costs down. The material can be expensive and can raise your roofing costs, but this roofing material is perfect for adding a bit of flair to any official or important building.
Custom Metalwork Roofing
Metal roofing materials provide many aesthetic options and can even be made to simulate many traditional materials—including slate, wood, or tile—in your choice of colors. Metal roofing is lightweight, low-maintenance, and offers good durability and resistance to weather and fire. We can also shape metal panels to fit roofs with domes or other decorative features like finials, weathervanes, and caps or use hard-to-find skills like planishing.
