Your roof provides protection to your home, belongings, and loved ones. For those reasons and many others, it’s important for homeowners to ensure their roofs are still capable of withstanding the elements.
GreenCal Construction provides eco-friendly roof installation and roof replacement services to homeowners throughout Fullerton, Bellflower, and the surrounding Southern California area. As a full-service roofing contractor, we provide an array of services, including roof inspections.
GreenCal Construction is a local, family-owned roofing company with a focus on eco-friendly home improvement. We pride ourselves on using green building practices with support from environmentally responsible manufacturers.
Shingles are the most cost-effective option when it comes to roofing systems. Roofing manufacturers such as GAF and Owens Corning continue to push innovation and design producing great quality products and aesthetically pleasing shingles such as Owens Corning Woodmoor/Woodcrest line.
Tiles themselves can last longer than a lifetime, though what’s underneath may not. Tiles require routine washing and tile relays.
Traditional tile also known as Heavy Tile was not an option for most homeowners before products such as Eaglelite hit the market. Going from composition shingles to tile is added weight on a structure of a home, creating a process of plans, engineering, and construction costs. We have now been able to create a smooth transition between roofing styles.
Flat roofs can be the most costly to replace as great products are required for a 10 to 15-year system but they can also be the most cost-effective if taken care of properly.
Not sure what makes up a roof besides shingles? Use our numbered roof diagram to familiarize yourself with the common parts of a roof and its layers so you can confidently communicate with your roofing contractor during your next roofing project.

Now that you’re familiar with the basic anatomy of a roof, you’ll start to notice dormers and gables everywhere you turn. More important, you’ll be equipped to have an informed conversation with your roofing contractor when the time comes for you to get a new roof.
