HUFFMAN INSPECTION SERVICES (H.I.S.) provides Quality Assurance services for all commercial roofing installations.
H.I.S. carries workers compensation and liability insurance and also is bonded for your protection. 

There are so many different ypes of roofing materials and roofing systems installed today. Many roofing systems are being installed with "Green" technology, meaning friendly to the environment, using recycled materials and minimizing the roofs impact regarding urban heat producing surfaces. Other roof systems are installed upside down and covered with a walking surface such as pavers or concrete. These systems are known as an inverted roof membrane assembly or "IRMA" roof system. Other roofs are covered with plants and vegetation and recycle water from nature which is also "Green" friendly. 
Then there are the typical types of roof systems like hot aphalt with gravel or capsheet, which are the smelly ones you notice when driving down the street and other roof membranes which are white plasticized flexible sheets which meet "Cool Roof" qualifications for relflecting UV rays.
Owners and Architects have many choices of materials and systems to  choose from and usually make their decisions based on cost, performance and suitability for type of structure/roof to be covered. Other considerations might be related to LEED certification qualification,requirements/points, historical renovation related installations, etc..
