HEATMAP (WINTER 2017-2018) | Four Twelve Roofing

 

When growing a small business, sometimes you have to “grind.”

This leaves you little spare time for fun side projects. But today, we’re getting back to the basics – having some fun with this thing.

To keep our friends and family, in the know, on what we’ve been up to over the past couple months, we put together this heatmap – showing all our project work over the course of Winter 2017-18.

The business is growing and so is the intrigue of our project load. Here are a couple of bullet points to summarize the activity we’ve seen over the last few months:

1. We’ve been awarded our first restaurant build out
2. We’ve begun construction on two townhome gut rehabs for an investor in Remington
3. We’ve performed multiple roof tear off and replacements, from Federal Hill all the way up to Hampden

The one commonality we are seeing in our project work, is that the majority of it is taking place in Baltimore City. If you or anyone you know has projects on the horizon, in Baltimore City, we would love if you thought of us. Feel free to visit our website, Four Twelve Roofing, and submit a contact form. We’ll be happy to come visit your home and see if we can be of help 🙂

FOUR TWELVE ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF ITS ROOFING DIVISION

That’s right folks, we are officially launching a roofing company. Over the last few months, we have noticed such a demand for roofing, siding, gutters and windows in Baltimore City and Baltimore County – that we have decided to grow out a roofing segment within Four Twelve.

We are not forming a new company – we will simply be doing more roofing, siding, gutters and window work within the purview of Four Twelve’s General Contracting business.

Four Twelve aims to provide our roofing clients with the same experience they have grown accustomed to, when working with our General Contracting team. Quality, timely customer service. And integrity in relationship management.

As we state on our website, and something that has come to be a mission statement for our company – “We aim to build quality homes and manage our relationships from a place of honesty and integrity.” When it comes to roofing, these principles certainly apply, and we think we can benefit our community tremendously through offering a quality product in the exterior home improvement and renovation sector.

ROOF REPLACEMENT – BALTIMORE CITY VS. BALTIMORE COUNTY? | Four Twelve Roofing

The first step in replacing your roof, as a resident in Baltimore, is identifying whether you live in Baltimore City or Baltimore County.

BALTIMORE CITY RESIDENTS

If you live in the city, more than likely you have a “Flat Roof.” Flat roofs typically have little to almost no pitch from front to back. These come in multiple forms – Modified Bitumen (which has a few different forms), Silicone Coatings or EPDM. To learn more about Flat Roofs, click here.

BALTIMORE COUNTY RESIDENTS

If you live in the county, you likely have a pitched roof, and pitched roofing material comes in many different forms – cedar shake, metal paneling, slate shingles or what is most common (~85% of homes) – asphalt shingles. To learn more about Asphalt Shingles, click here. You may also visit us at 10 E North Ave, Baltimore, MD 21218 for a personal consultation!

When selecting Baltimore City roofers, it is important to know whether you have a Flat Roof or a Pitched Roof. This will dictate the scope of work and the contractor you select to perform your roof replacement. Make sure your roofer has experience working on flat roofs or pitched roofs before electing to go with them. Check What Others Are Saying About Our Services!

Baltimore Flat Roofs Roofing

TYPES OF FLAT ROOFS IN BALTIMORE CITY | Four Twelve Roofing – Flat Roof Specialists

If you are a homeowner in Baltimore City, you likely have what we call a “Flat Roof.”

Flat Roofs are tricky, as they are, by definition, flat. With little to no slope on a flat roof, it is hard to shed water, snow or debris, which means you need a Baltimore roofing contractor who is experienced when it comes to these types of installations, such as Four Twelve Roofing. Check What Others Are Saying About Our Services!

MODIFIED BITUMEN – THE COMMON PRODUCT

Modified Bitumen is the most common product used when it comes to Flat Roofs. Modified Bitumen goes by a couple of different names – rubber, torch down or tar. Tar is the old way of doing things. Typical old rowhomes will have a tin sheet metal cap, with many layers of tar roofing material on top of them. Newer Modified Bitumen roofs will be either rubber or torch down, which is Four Twelve’s preferred flat roofing product. It is cheap and typically has a lifespan of 20 years. It is usually laid in 2-3 layers, on top of the wooden roof deck, and your roofer will use a torch to heat up the glue or adhesive to get it to stick to your roof deck.

SILICONE COATINGS – WATER RESISTANT AS IT GETS

Silicone Coated roofs are typically applied on top of original modified bitumen roofs. Silicone coatings respond well to UV degradation and are water resistant. Typically we recommend doing a modified bitumen roof and then coming back 10-15 years after the installation to do a silicone coating. The UV protection will help in the summer months. UV rays are what degrades your roof most – not snow or tree branches – but rather the hot summer sun. Water resistance also means that when water ponds on your roofs surface, behind a skylight or a chimney, it will not find any seams to sneak through, as the silicone completely prevents this.

EPDM – CLEAN AND SIMPLE MATERIAL

EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer and is basically the same material used to make bicycle tires. EPDM roofs are applied by mopping glue onto the roof deck and then laid flat, taping all seams and edges with a specialty tape. EPDM provides a cleaner look than modified bitumen, with less visible seams, but this material is easily punctured and thus, not as highly recommended as torch down.

Four Twelve has been a flat roof specialists with a 100% satisfaction rate from a Baltimore & Columbia roofing company. Contact us for more information. You may also visit us at 10 E North Ave, Baltimore, MD 21218 for a personal consultation!

Asphalt Shingles have a lifespan of 20-50 years, when installed properly by a qualified roofing contractor. Asphalt Shingle roofs are the best product on the market for a pitched roof when it comes to cost-to-value and weather resistance. Asphalt Shingles also come in a variety of colors and design options. If you are looking for asphalt shingle roofing in baltimore, then call us.

3 TAB SHINGLES

3 Tab Shingles are the most affordable type of Asphalt Roofing product. They are called 3 Tab Shingles because the individual pieces come in 3 tab pieces, with less styles and varieties compared to Architectural Shingles. 3 Tab Shingles are preferred for rental properties and homes with lower resale value. 3 Tab Shingles typically have a manufacturer’s warranty of 20 years.

ARCHITECTURAL SHINGLES

Architectural Shingles are the most popular and commonly installed type of shingles available on the market today. Architectural Shingles have a more dimensional appearance than 3 tab shingles and look like “shake” shingles when installed. Architectural Shingles are heavier and thicker than 3 Tab Shingles and thus have a longer manufacturer’s warranty, typically 30 years. Architectural Shingles are preferred by most homeowners to 3 Tab Shingles and will typically increase the resale value of your home. They are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners.

When it comes to your roofing needs, be it asphalt, rubber, or any type of roofing materials you can count on Four Twelve Roofing to deliver. Apart from our roofing services, you may also rely on us for other property improvement services including but not limited to gutters and skylight.
