California Roofing Materials

Selecting the Right Roofing Materials

The material you select for your roof is a matter of personal choice, but there are considerations that an experienced roofing contractor can assist you with. The style of your home and the shape of your roofline may influence your ideal roofing materials, but there are also lifecycle costs, code/zoning and climate requirements to be aware of. The type of roofing materials, style and color selections can be tailored to your environmental, energy, budgetary and personal preferences.

Our roofing experts have carefully selected each of the roofing products we offer not only on the basis of their aesthetic appeal, but of their lasting value and performance.

The crews at PetersenDean are certified roofers who are experts in the installation of all the following roofing systems:

Composition Shingle Roofing Systems

Composition shingles are the most common and economical roofing option for most sloped roofs. PetersenDean has installed more than 100,000 composition shingle roofs since 1984 because of their popularity with homeowners, home builders and developers. Composition shingle roofing is manufactured in a wide range of styles and colors to accentuate any home or multi-family property. Composition shingles come in a variety of colors, styles and textures that emulate wood, cedar and shake; as well as cool and green roofing options. Custom manufactured accessories, such as enhanced ridge or attic ventilators, provide further enhancement and energy savings to your roof. PetersenDean is certified by all major manufacturers of conventional roofing systems being used today by architects, engineers and building owners.

Tile Roofing Systems

Tile roofing offers true aesthetic beauty and old world charm, and is available in either concrete or clay. There are many advantages to tile roofing, and a qualified roofing contractor is imperative to insure proper installation. There are several styles of tile roofing options for homeowners, each with its own appeal and aesthetic. Typically the architectural style of your home’s exterior is the primary factor when choosing which concrete roofing tile or clay tile roofing product to use. Tile roofing will compliment any architectural style, with authentic styles and colors that look like clay, slate and wood. PetersenDean works with established tile roofing material manufactures to offer a wide array of colors and styles to our customers. We use only the finest tile roofing products available, and provide our customers with guidance and skillful tile roofing installation nationally, no matter your regional requirements.

Metal Roofing Systems

Architectural metal roofing panels are considered by many professionals to provide the best and longest lasting protection against roof leaks. Metal roofing is lightweight and comes in many different designs, shapes, and colors to achieve almost any architectural effect. Standing seam metal roofing is a popular choice of architects, designers, and long-term property investors because of its beauty, reliable design, low maintenance, and superior durability. PetersenDean operates an in-house sheet metal shop that is equipped with computer-driven brakes, shears, and slitters, as well as several other custom metal forming devices. A durable and energy-efficient roofing option, metal roofs carry warranties of up to 30 years.

Solar Roofing Systems

The perfect time to consider solar electricity is when installing a new roof. PetersenDean provides complimentary roof estimates, and our consultants are also trained solar roofing specialists. It’s an ideal for us to prepare a home solar savings analysis at the same time as the roofing estimate. Homeowners today are experiencing rising energy prices, but with solar equipment costs declining, a solar roofing solution is not only affordable, it’s smart. A home solar power system provides a strong return on your investment, protecting you from rising energy costs for years to come. A comprehensive roofing and solar solution reduces your overall costs, protects your roof warranty and eliminates the need to select multiple contractors. PetersenDean is a nationally licensed solar and roofing contractor, providing you experience and peace of mind.

Low Slope/Flat Roofing Systems

Low slope roofing systems are the most challenging to install, demanding an uncommon level of skill to ensure longevity, integrity and low maintenance. Low slope roofing materials include organic and fiberglass rolled roofing products used in Built-Up Roofing (BUR) applications, modified bitumen rolled roofing used in BUR, single-ply rolled products such as PVC and TPO, fluid-applied products, asphalt, specialty adhesives and other products. PetersenDean offers non-destructive (infrared) moisture surveys and installs energy efficient and green roofing systems. If necessary, problem flat roofs can be made sloped to drain and any structural issues addressed. PetersenDean offers manufacturers warranties up to 30 years, and products to address your roofing, ventilation and drainage issues.
