Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are a common Tarpon Springs roofing material, and for good reason. Shingles are popular all around the country because of their versatility, durability, and cost-effectiveness. Asphalt shingles can mimic the look and profile of other roofing materials like wood shake, slate, and tile. They can also handle all kinds of weather and last for up to 50 years with proper maintenance. Couple this with a low installation cost, and asphalt shingles make for a good investment.


Metal is a tough and durable roofing material. Impervious against moisture and long-term sun exposure, this can last for 50 years or more. In addition, it’s energy-efficient because a metal roof can reflect a significant portion of the sun’s heat. This can make it easier for your HVAC system to keep you cool and reduce your energy bills. Metal roofs are also 100% recyclable at the end of their service life, so investing in one means you help keep our landfills clear.


Tile roofs have a distinctive look and feel. These work wonderfully for Spanish Mission style houses and Mediterranean inspired homes. Tile roofs are durable; a well-constructed one typically lasts for over 50 years. This Palm Harbor roofing material is also impact-resistant and energy-efficient. Its installation creates natural airflow underneath your roof. This air forms a thermal barrier that helps keep your home cool and helps reduce energy costs.

Flat/Low Slope Materials

Modern or contemporary style homes look great with flat roofs. We offer several different flat roof styles and materials. You can choose from built-up roofing, modified bitumen roofing, EPDM, TPO, and PVC. The difference lies in the number of layers applied on your roof and their methods of application. We also offer several coating systems that can serve as an alternative to full roof replacement and improve your roof’s energy efficiency.

With the variety of roofing materials available, along with all their different designs and colors, choosing the perfect roof for your home has never been easier. We can handle roofing projects of any size, and maintain, repair, and replace any kind of roof. Give us a call to learn more about our roofing options or to get a free estimate.
