If you have a roofing need that doesn’t fit into normal repair or replace categories, contact us and give us a chance to help- we are creative problem solvers. Remember, estimates are always free- without any obligation.
When to replace the roof, is a question many homeowners struggle with. Because, a roof’s condition will be dependent upon many variables, such as weathering, age, quality of shingles… and no one answer fits all.
The best way to ensure that your roof doesn’t fail at a spectacular inconvenient time is to have it inspected by a Roofing Contractor twice a year- usually in spring and fall.
These inspections will keep you updated on the strength of the roof and its expected lifespan.
We are skilled in replacing the following roofing types: Sloped Roofs- asphalt shingled (3-tab, Dimensional and Luxury), metal, clay or tile, wood shake or shingle and slate. Flat Roofs- BUR (Built-Up Roof or Tar and Gravel), Modified Bitumen (torch-down of rolled asphalt fabric), Rubber Membrane (EPDM) and TPO (thermoplastic strips of Membranes).
We are the absolute best at finding roof leaks other roofing contractors can't-
our inspectors are trained in the science of water flow through a home’s internal framing. Challenge Cardinal Roofing And Gutters to solve a roof leak you can’t trace but know is there because somehow an interior doorway drips with moisture every time it rains. We have years of experience taking on tricky roof problems and haven’t come across one yet that we couldn’t fix.
No worries over your roof looking patched- we will find close matching shingles in appearance to the original shingles. The repair won’t be noticeable with a slight difference between the original and repair shingle because it’s usually viewed from a distance.
Don’t think you have to replace the entire roof because you have a leak- ask us for help first.
Replacing an Asphalt Shingle Roof
Historic Slate Roof
Nail Pop on Roof
Roof Leaks in the home are the one failure that grabs attention
because people know moisture damage leads to all sorts of bad things, such as wood rot, electrical shorts, mold and ruined carpet. No matter if your roof is asphalt shingles, slate or metal Call on us for help- we have inspection methods to find even hidden leaks..
An ageing asphalt shingle roof that is beyond 15 years may need to be replaced.
We are committed to providing roof repairs or a replacement roof that will be error fee and long-lived.
Shingles are installed on sloped roofs which rely on gravity to keep the water flowing down off the shingles. Leaks occur mostly at weak points around perforations at vent stacks, chimneys and skylights. Leaks also occur because of lax installation protocols, inadequate attic ventilation, and storm damage. Cardinal Roofing And Gutters offers a good warranty for all repairs and installations.
Metal roofing’s greatest advantage is its light weighted strength
which allows for easier installation and longer lifespan beyond common asphalt 3-tab shingles. Metal shingles are usually made of common metals, such as galvanized steel, aluminum and to a lesser extent copper and zinc are manufactured with a stamping press. Metal roofing also comes in panels with 3 options, foam insulation backed panel, exposed fastener and seamless interlocking panels. Cardinal Roofing is very adept at repairing or installing all kinds of metal roofing.
Slate is a traditional roofing material that performs well as a roofing material. It’s very dense structure makes it water repellent, fireproof and able to withstand freezing and thawing cycles well.
Slate has been used as a highly successful roofing material since the 13th century.
Thus, we have centuries of performance history to help us in building incredibly beautiful long-lasting roofs.

They will work quickly to minimize water damage- saving you some of the secondary costs, such as inventory, equipment, and structural damages.
Flat Roofs are used
for large industrial building because they require less building material. Sloped roofs with peaks and valleys are a more complex design with substantially more framing needed. And they allow for more usable conditioned space within the building because climate control elements can be built on top of a flat roof. However, they do require an inspection at least twice a year because whatever blows on drops on won't come off till someone takes it off.
BUT (Built-Up-Roof) or Tar and Gravel
Manufactured on the roof as built up layers of roofing felt, fiberglass, hot tar (Bitumen) and ending with a gravel top. This type of roof is extremely smelly because of the hot tar so it’s not used on residential homes as the smell makes many people sick.
The hot tar is very hazardous to work with so this type of roof should always be done by a professional.
This type of roof is fire-resistant because of the gravel. Tar and gravel roofs have been used in the USA for more than 150 years so we know a lot about how to make them last. With an expert install and regular maintenance these roofs can last beyond 30 years.
Commercial Metal Roof
TPO Roof Install
Rubber Membrane Roof Repair
TPO is a thin single ply (rubber like) roofing membrane with a reflective white top. It can be place on a smooth flat roof by itself or on top of fiber insulation boards.
TPO is an acronym for its chemical composition of Thermoplastic Polyolefin. Thermoplastic means a material that softens with heat and hardens when cool. Technology has improved the heat efficiency of flat roofs with white colored (previously black or grey) coatings or membranes that will reflect back nearly 4/5 of the sun’s. This is a great improvement that keeps the heat transferred from the roof into the building below at a minimum.
EDPM/ Rubber Membrane Roofs
EPDM Rubber- ethylene propylene diene monomer is used to create a rubberized roofing membrane sold in a range of widths of 7.5 to 50 feet and in 2 thickness, 45 and 60 mils.
It can be installed as one complete membrane or one with seams connected with adhesives, specially formulated tape or ballasted with round gravel. EDPM is available both in black and white colored membrane.
Commercial Metal Roofs
Metal Commercial roofs are similar to residential roofs except they have a few more roof penetrations, such as venting for ovens, exhaust hoods, and air exchange systems. Depending on type of business restaurant, small grocery, or meat market they could be faced with more pest issues which will factor into specifics of the inspection.
Experience is the key to successful commercial roof evaluations- having an idea of what problems to look for makes it more probable they will be discovered and tried and true solutions can then be promoted.
