Unlike other roofing companies that specialize in one area of roofing, TC Backer has a vast range of specialties including shingles, rubber, metal, and slate. That’s why we are one of the most versatile residential roofers, and, one of the top licensed roofing contractors in Dover PA and York County.

Most common types of residential roofing applications:

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are the most widely used roofing material, especially for residential applications. They were invented here in America in 1901 and have undergone continuous improvements ever since. TC Backer is proud to offer shingles from a number of quality manufacturers such as IKO, Tamko, and GAF. Because we are certified by the manufacturers to install their product, we are able to offer unbeatable, long-term warranties.

Rubber Roofing

Rubber roofing is less commonly used by residential roofers as it is intended for a low-slope roofing application. Rubber is a membrane that is typically glued down and is less visually pleasing than other roofing materials. TC Backer applies rubber roofing where necessary.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is made up of tiles, or panels and is known for its high resistance to the elements, and its longevity. Metal roofing can be made of steel, aluminum, copper, or zinc and can offer a beautiful accent to any home.

Synthetic Roofing

Composite Materials, sometimes called “synthetic roofing”, use a mixture of materials to make up a hybrid product that can be very durable. Composite materials are made to mimic the look of shingles, slate, or cedar shakes but without the disadvantages that come along with those materials.

When you are searching for one of the best residential contractors in the area, be sure that TC Backer is on your list.

    Roof Repairs / Roof Maintenance / Roof Inspections

    Sometimes you can extend the serviceable life of your roof by having roof repairs or maintenance performed.

At TC Backer, we take great pride in performing thorough roof inspections and quality roof repairs when we can possibly extend the serviceable life of your roof.

    Roof Ventilation

    Proper ventilation is a very important part of any roofing system to ensure it gives you a long – lasting serviceable life. It is important that a roof’s ventilation system is balanced between intake and exhaust. The correct utilization of intake and exhaust vents is a crucial part of roof design because it:

    • helps prevent moisture buildup in your attic, which, during colder months, can help prevent condensation issues that can affect the materials in the attic space, especially insulation.
    • helps moderate attic temperate which helps moderate the temperature in the rest of your home
    • prevents excess heat buildup
    • improves the energy efficiency in the home
    • can lower your heating costs
    • increases the life of your roof
    • is a requirement to uphold manufacturers’ warranty
    • helps prevents icicles at edge of roof
    • can prevent ice damming at eave of roof
