Metal Roof Systems:

The torch down roofing system consists of levels of modified bitumen and are heat-adhered to layers of fiberglass. The torch-down roof is only used for flat roofs and are excellent for preventing moisture build-up.
The Modified Bitumen roofing system is similar to the tar and gravel roof in that this roof system adds layers of polyester or fiberglass with bitumen to create strength and resistance for a flat roof.
There are several surfacing options for this system, which include a factory applied mineral surface, a gravel surface laid in bitumen or a liquid applied coating that is typically reflective in nature. If you are in the Truckee, California area and are interested in a Modified Bitumen roofing system contact Advanced Roofing Solutions today.
Liquid applied roofing systems use an elastomeric or synthetic rubber based liquid as a waterproof coating for existing roofs. Due to their elasticity, liquid applied systems tolerate well when the roof moves as a result of temperature, foundation settling, and seasonal expansion. Liquid applied systems can be strengthened by adding a reinforcement scrim during installation and are ideal for flat or pitched roofs.
Benefits of a Liquid-Applied Roof System:
A Reduction in Daily Expansion & Contraction of the Roof.
Reflects 90% of the Heat & Sun's UV Rays Which Reduces Cooling Cost.
Prevents Premature Aging & Leaking of Metal Roofs.
Contains a Strong Mildewcide.
Superior Resistance to Dirt.
Cedar is a beautiful, durable and environmentally friendly roofing option. Whether you are constructing a new home, have an existing cedar roof in need of replacement or want to switch from an asphalt roof to a cedar roof, our roofers have the expertise, knowledge and experience required to improve your home with a new Cedar roof.
Single/Multi-Layer Tar & Gravel:
There are three different types of the single-ply roofing systems that are widely used among commercial roofing contractors. Those three include EPDM, the PVC and the TPO. Below you will find a brief description of each.
Our Single-Ply Membrane Roofing Systems Include:
TPO or thermoplastic polyolefin is a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene polymers. The TPO combines the attributes of the EPDM and the PVC to include long-term weathering resistance, cold weather flexibility, tear resistance, puncture resistance, and chemical resistance. TPO's may also be designed in a variety of colors.
EPDM is an elastomeric polymer that has been synthesized from ethylene, propylene, and a small amount diene monomer. EPDM sheets are available in a variety of colors, and thickness. EPDM membranes can be installed using one of three methods; ballasted with large stones, fully adhered with an approved adhesive, and mechanically attached to the roof deck.
PVC or polyvinyl chloride is produced by the polymerization of vinyl chloride monomer. PVC membranes can be non-reinforced or reinforced with glass fibers or polyester fabric. PVC membranes are installed by attaching the membrane to the roof deck. They are then adhered with an approved adhesive, stone ballasted, and paver ballasted. PVC membranes do not cure after exposure to the elements therefore remains heat weldable throughout the lifetime of the roof.
Built-Up Roofs have one of the longest histories in the construction trades. These asphalt systems are most often used for institutional, commercial, and industrial applications. Some of the advantages of the Built-Up Roof Systems include durability and competitive life-cycle costs. Advanced Roofing Solutions installs a variety of high quality roofs for businesses throughout the Truckee/Tahoe area and are extremely knowledgeable in the very latest innovations of the BUR system.
