Cool Roofing Contractor – Flat Roofs – Metal Roofing – Roof Repair
Flat Roofing is a very specialized field of roofing and when your flat roof leaks, and needs repair or replacement, you should only hire a professional roofing contractor specializing in flat roofs. Do not hire a roofer who installs “all types of roofing”, does a “rubber roof” every once in a while, and can never be found to repair their leaking roof. Cool Flat Roof is such a roofing contractor – we specialize in only two types of roofs: Flat Roofs and Metal Roofing.

IB Roofing Benefits :
Some thirty years ago, IB Roof a small innovative company from Oregon had taken an entirely new approach to designing and manufacturing flat roofing membranes. IB, which stands for Industry’s Best roofs recognized the need for an innovative flat roofing membrane that would not only provide a reliable low slope roof protection, but would also provide a solution to all the problems commonly associated with conventional flat roofing membranes. The result of their venture was quite astonishing; In the flat roofing market where a typical flat roofing system tends to fail in as early as five years, IB has introduced a truly reliable and long lasting flat roofing system that also happens to be economical and energy efficient. This innovation has provided building owners with a smart choice for a flat roofing system that would be extremely reliable and save thousands of dollars in costly roof repairs resulting from premature failures that are common with the typical membrane roofing products.
- Reliable and Long Lasting
Many different roofing products have been introduced to a flat roofing market over the last few decades, but none of them come close to what IB has to offer in terms of reliability and protection for your building. Single Ply roofing membrane designed by IB roofs far exceeds the performance of any of the conventional membranes available on the market. IB offers superior thickness which results in a long lasting roof protection. The seams of IB roof are hot air welded creating the permanent bond that cannot be penetrated even by the standing and freezing water.
- Fully Designed Flat Roofing system
Unlike conventional flat roofing manufacturers, IB not only produces world’s best flat roofing membrane, but they also manufacture every single component of the system that is designed to work with your roof. This ensures a perfect fit and adherence no matter how complicated and odd shaped your roof may be.
- Economical and Energy Efficient Flat roofing membrane
IB roof installed on a residential building comes with lifetime non prorated material and labor warranty. That means that if there is ever a leak caused by material or installation failure, the company will provide the necessary repair at no charge to you. This is the only warranty of this kind, and gives homeowners a true piece of mind. It means that there are no more costly repairs to deal with or premature roof failures to worry about. The IB roof is designed to outlast conventional membranes by as many as there times. It eliminates future roof repair and replacement costs that you would have to deal with if you chose an inferior roofing system that may cost less upfront, but will result in expensive repairs down the road. Finally IB roof reflects over ninety percent of solar radiant heat resulting in some very significant energy savings and keeping your house much cooler than it would be with a conventional roofing membrane.
- Upgrade-ability and Ease of Repair.
Whether you decide to install a skylight 7 years from now, or an IB SolarWise PV system next year, or a tree falls on your roof in 20 years, you will not have to worry. Since your IB roofing membrane will remain weldable throughout its service life, changing the use of your roof, adding new units or fixing an accidental damage will be easy, seamless and leak-free. Any new structures and equipment installed on your roof will be compatible, and installations will be water-tight. If you are doing a bathroom remodeling or installing a fireplace in your living room, this will require running a ventilation pipe through the roof. With IB’s excellent compatibility and pre-manufactured flashing components, designed to fit virtually any type of roof obstruction, we will ensure that all is done in a professional manner and coordinate our efforts with your remodeling contractor, making the whole process easy and worry-free for you.

Metal Roof in Wayland, MA
Although metal roofs initially cost 2 to 3 times more than asphalt shingles, they are a much better investment over a long period of time. Initial metal roofing cost is comparable to that of cedar shakes. The only difference is that in 15 years, a cedar shake roof will loose all of its value, while a metal woof will retain almost all of it. Metal roofs increase appraised value of your home, and more importantly, maintain that increased value for years to come. Combined with energy savings, and virtual elimination of roof leaks and repairs, metal roofs provide 89 percent immediate return on the initial investment.
Interlocking Metal Shingles
Metal roofing prices to install a steel shingle roof, range anywhere from $800 to $1100 (for fairly complicated roof installation) per roofing square (100 sq. ft.). This price includes all necessary metal roofing materials, and labor. Metal roof pricing will be affected by the roof slope, relative complexity, and number of roof penetrations such as skylights, chimneys and roof vents. The presence of dormers and valleys will further increase installation time, and affect total roof price.
Interlocking aluminum shingle roofs are installed in the same way as steel shingles, but will cost on average $75-100 more per square, due to increased roofing materials costs. While aluminum and steel shingles, generally perform the same, aluminum is recommended in coastal areas, and is mandatory within 1 mile from the shore line.
Vertical panels metal roofing:
Standing seam metal roof prices range from $1000 to $1300 per square. Cost of standing seam is higher than cost of metal shingles, due to more complex installation, and considerably higher roofing material prices.
Copper roofing prices start at about $1800 for copper shingles and $2100 for custom fabricated copper roofing panels. Prices will greatly depend on each particular project, current material prices and amount of custom work, such as seam soldering, and custom roof flashing fabrication.
