How Your Historic Richmond Home Can Benefit from Modern Low Slope Roofing

November 16, 2023

In the historic neighborhoods of Richmond, where timeless architecture meets modern living, many homeowners face the unique challenge of preserving the character of their properties while ensuring they are equipped to withstand the elements. Fortunately, Tredegar Construction is here to bridge the gap between the past and the present with modern roofing solutions tailored to Richmond's iconic homes.

Why TPO Roofing is a Game Changer

Flat roofs, synonymous with the row homes in the Fan and Museum Districts of Richmond, as well as Church Hill and several mid-century homes, require a unique approach to roofing. Enter TPO, or Thermoplastic Polyolefin. As the most popular choice for flat roofs, TPO offers a myriad of benefits that make it the go-to solution:

Durability: TPO's unique composition – a single layer of rubberized fabric combined with synthetic and rubber components – ensures that it stands the test of time, offering unparalleled waterproofing capabilities.

Energy Efficiency: UV deflection properties of TPO not only protect your home from the sun's harsh rays but also lead to significant energy conservation. This means lower utility bills and an eco-friendlier home.

Cost-Effective: While providing superior protection, TPO is also an economical choice, ensuring homeowners get the best bang for their buck.

Tredegar Construction, as a factory-certified contractor, is proud to offer Versico Roofing System's top-tier TPO products, guaranteeing both the quality of the material and the manufacturer's warranties.

Silicone Roof Coatings – The Ultimate Protective Seal 

Silicone Roof Coatings are another innovation changing the roofing game in Richmond. Serving as a liquid waterproofing solution, these coatings provide a water-tight seal on existing roof systems, eliminating the need for expensive tear-offs.

Why Choose Silicone Roof Coatings:

Versatility: Whether you have a metal, EPDM, TPO, PVC,Built-Up Roofing (BUR), or Modified Bitumen roof, a silicone coating could be the ideal solution .  It will depend on the condition of the current roof and what products have been applied to it over the years.

Cost Savings: Commercial property owners can expense the entire cost of a silicone roof coating in the first year, thanks to its classification as roof maintenance.

Eco-Friendly: Silicone coatings exceed EPA Energy Star standards and reduce the wear and tear on building structures due to thermal expansion and contraction.

Tredegar Construction is proud to be a certified installer of Lucas Coatings products, ensuring you get the best in terms of quality and warranty protection.
