At Lara’s Roof, We understand that
Asphalt shingles are the most popular choice for homeowners. They’re made of an organic or fiberglass base material, which is coated with asphalt and covered in granules to help protect against the elements and come in various styles and types.
At Lara’s Roof, we specialize in roof installation. Installation of advanced shingles systems and our unique attention to details.
Modified Bitumen Torch
Torch down roofing is best intended for flat or low-slope roofs. Also known as modified bitumen membrane that’s applied by using a propane torch. The material is incredibly strong and durable while remaining lightweight. One of its main strengths is that it has a high tolerance for both heat and cold. This means that it’s able to expand and contract without cracking or melting. It shouldn’t be confused with hot mopping. Hot mopping makes use of liquid asphalt as opposed to rolls of modified bitumen. There are however some hot mopping safety concerns to be aware of. Torch Down roofing provides a safer installation as no dangerous fumes are emitted.

Originally, metal roofs were made of corrugated galvanized steel: a wrought iron–steel sheet was coated with zinc and then roll-formed into corrugated sheets. Another approach is to blend zinc, aluminum, and silicon-coated steel. These products are sold under various trade names like “Zincalume” or “Galvalume”. The surface may display the raw zinc finish, or it may be used as a base metal under factory-coated colors. Another metal roofing product comes in a rolled form of various widths of so-called standing seam metal. The material is “seamed” together using a special roof seaming machine that is run vertically up the panel to seal the joints and prevent water intrusion.
Metal tile sheets can also be employed. These are usually painted or stone-coated steel. Stone coated steel roofing panels are made from zinc/aluminium-coated steel with an acrylic gel coating. The stones are usually a natural product with a colored ceramic coating. Stainless steel is another option. It is usually roll-formed into standing seam profiles for roofing; however, individual shingles are also available. Other metals used for roofing are lead, tin and aluminum, and copper.
Clay & Concrete Roofing
Clay tiles are produced by baking molded clay. The density of the clay is determined by the length of time and temperature at which it is heated. Colors of clay tiles range from shades of white, yellow, orange and brown.
Clay tiles are resistant to strong winds and cannot be destroyed in a fire. Because of the way they are shaped, clay tiles protect the underlayment of your roof, while also creating an air pocket thereby helping to insulate and isolate any unwanted heat or cold from being transferred to your home’s attic space.
Concrete tiles are made of mixture of sand, cement and water, which are molded under heat and high pressure. The exposed surface of a tile may be finished with a paint like material. Concrete tiles have additional water locks, or interlocking ribs on the edges that prevent water infiltration. Concrete tiles come in three main appearances:
1. Flat profile – no curves.
2. Low Profile – small curves and has a rise to width ratio equal to 1:5 or less.
3. High Profile: large curves and has a rise to width ratio greater than 1:5.
Polyurethane Foam Roofing
Ultra-Thane spray foam roof systems are field applied seamless membranes, fully adhered to the entire deck substrate, and self-flashed around every penetration leading to reduced entry points for rainwater penetration. Properly installed SPF roofs perform as designed to full warranty term as they are tough, durable, and long-lasting roof systems that resist normal mechanical wear and destructive thermal expansive forces.
GCMC Spray Foam systems reduce the impact of global “climate change” with low GWP components in renewable and sustainable roofing solutions.
GCMC roof coatings can reduce “urban heat island effect” and are compliant with CRRC, EnergyStar, and CEC Title 24 energy efficient building code standards to provide excellent solar reflectance, and energy savings.
Our high-performance roof coating offerings of acrylic elastomeric, high solids silicone, 2-component polyurethane and Polyaspartic products restore and weather-proof existing commercial, residential, and industrial structures.
