TruSlate roofing from GAF allows the true look of slate to be installed on roofs that are not structurally framed to support traditional slate. This is a good product to replace the faux-slate products that have not worked well and have been discontinued. This house pictured is a TruSlate project we installed at 2399 Waterford Grace, here in New Braunfels.
Modified Bitumen (Mod-bit)
Modified bitumen looks like the old rolled roofing that people used to install on porches. This product is a vast improvement over rolled roofing. Modified bitumen is best thought of as rubberized asphalt. Feller Roofing generally installs this product on flat residential roofs where there is no possibility of ponding. It is a 2 or 3 layer system – one or two layers of base sheet, followed by a layer of cap sheet. Cap sheet has a surface comprised of colored granules, just like a shingle. Feller Roofing uses a self-adhered modified bitumen. This is a safer alternative to the “torch-down” process used in the past. The project pictured is from St. Stephen’s Episcopal School and Church in Wimberley.
TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin)
TPO is typically used in commercial applications, but Feller Roofing has had great success using this material on flat residential roofs (generally add-on porches) where there is a chance of ponding (standing water) occurring. TPO is generally white, reflecting a large amount of heat. It is typically installed over ½” fiberboard, but can be installed over rigid insulation board (Polyiso Insulation) to achieve better thermal resistance.
