Type of Roof
We’re experienced in every type of roof popular in La Puente. Today’s roofing materials look better and have a longer lifespan than ever before. We always use durable materials tested for wind, fire, hail, and earthquake resistance according to the latest industry standards. We’ll help you choose the best balance of style, cost, expected lifespan, and energy-efficiency (including Title 24 requirements).
Composition “asphalt” shingles are by far the most common type of roof in Southern California. They’re reinforced with glass fibers, invented by Owens Corning in the 1970s, for superior fire and moisture resistance. Owens Corning produces their own brand of Class A fire-rated shingles, but GAF is the #1 selling brand and the largest manufacturer in North America.
Many homes in the area have concrete tile roofs, but you may not have noticed or realized that. Auburn concrete tile simulates the beauty of natural materials with handcrafted leading edges and a wide range of textures and colors. Boral Concrete Tile is the oldest and most experienced manufacturer.
Clay tile roofing is the epitome of Southern California style. Boral US Tile is known for the traditional beauty, durability, and performance of its Mission Tile as well as the natural looks of its ProSlate and ProShake product lines. Products from Redland Clay Tile are also popular for their attractive natural variations in color, texture, and shape.
As fire codes and insurance carriers permit we install wood shakes and wood shingles. And where structural loading permits we also install slate. Just ask and we’ll let you know what’s possible at your home or business.

La Puente Footnotes
The first Europeans to enter the area that eventually became La Puente was the Spanish Portola Expedition, which had to build a bridge to cross the San Gabriel River. The city’s name came from the Spanish word for bridge — “puente.” After the secularization of the missions William Workman and John Rowland were granted Rancho La Puente in 1842, and the name was shortened in 1984.
Typical of Southern California, the region within 60 miles of La Puente experiences an average of some 3 high wind incidents each year (www.usa.com). So an annual roof inspection is a very good idea.
