Asphalt Shingle Roofing Leader Southeastern MA

F-Wave shingles were designed and developed in Texas where over 500 hail storms a year is the primary reason for roof replacements, Colorado as well. For years there was nothing available in the marketplace that could survive these brutal hail storms and asphalt roofs were being replaced on a regular basis. That is until F-wave invented it!
F-wave shingles are the most innovative roofing shingle to hit the market in years. They are a beautiful mix of key features from asphalt, cedar and slate, but without their unfortunate drawbacks.

What is F-Wave Made of?

F-Wave is a new type of shingle based upon a tried-and-true commercial roofing material, TPO thermoplastic polyolefin. This synthetic rubber is then mixed with steel to bring you a new standard in the roofing industry designed to withstand just about anything! F-Wave has no stones or asphalt granules to lose, which also means this product is incredibly lightweight.

What Are the Key Features of F-Wave?

  • Tough Single-Piece Construction (No delaminated layers or adhesive failures)
  • Lightweight, roughly 20% lighter than asphalt
  • Green & Sustainable Design
  • No Stones or Asphalt granules
  • Absorbs & transfers less heat than asphalt shingles
  • Has a Self-Healing Property
  • Class 4 Hail Rated (with warranted coverage)
  • 130 MPH Wind Rated (with warranted coverage), Classic Slate 150 MPH Rated
  • Class A Fire Rated (with warranted coverage)
  • Resistant to Cracking & Fading (with warranted coverage)
  • 50 Year Warranty

What Styles Are Available With F-Wave?

Are F-Wave Shingles Worth It?

Lightweight, tough single-piece construction, resistant to cracking, no asphalt granules, Class A fire rating, Class IV impact rating, 130-mph wind rated and 50-year warranty. For the right homeowners, F-Wave shingles are absolutely worth it!

And because they’re resistant to UV rays and feature a smart self-healing feature, they’ll last longer than traditional shingles.

Cedar Shingle Roof or F-Wave Synthetic Hand Split Shake Roof?

Here in Massachusetts real Cedar roofs have been around for years and are still very prevalent along the coast. Cedar looks beautiful at first, but as it ages and moss and algae covers the roof, that beauty quickly fades. And the price? Cedar has always been expensive, but since Covid the price has literally gone through the roof, if you can get it.

This is where F-Wave literally blows away the competition.

In addition to being designed for durability, longevity, and easy installation, F-Wave shingles are also available in a wide variety of Natural colors in their Hand-Split Shake Collection. Now couldn’t be a better time to ditch real Cedar and move to something more sustainable and longer lasting.

Traditional Slate Roof or F-Wave Synthetic Slate Roof?

Slate roofing tiles are made from metamorphic rock and come in two options: hard slate and soft slate. Hard slate is the strongest type of slate, and more durable than soft slate. While it is durable and long lasting, slate is only an option when you have large roof areas and a structure that can hold the extra weight. Slate weighs anywhere between 800 – 1500 pounds per square (100sf) and is also fragile and difficult to replace and install.

If you have a more modest roof size and a structure not designed for the added weight, synthetic slate roofing is really your best option. At a mere 206 pounds/square (100sf) F-Wave won’t break your homes back or your piggy bank either. F-Wave is durable, easy to install, extremely lightweight with much less maintenance.

    My wife and I have been homeowners for 46 years and over that time we have had many home improvement projects ranging from small to very large and extensive. Working with Beantown Home Improvement was easily one of the best experiences … More we've had. We were looking to replace our cedar clapboard and shingle siding with vinyl for ease of maintenance. We also wanted to strip off the existing siding to expose any rot or other hidden issues due to the ravages of time. Elias met with us on-site and we jointly walked through the entire project, discussing various options and just how the work would be performed. He was very professional and easy to work with. He answered my questions in detail and made sure we understood the scope of the work.After signing the contract we had a target date for the work to begin. We were kept apprised of any date shift due to weather or stock availability and work began right on time.The crew were also very professional and efficient. the Project Manager went over the plan with me to answer any last minute questions. It was obvious the crew knew just what they were doing as they each went about their separate tasks from setting up staging to stripping off the old siding.Upon inspection after the old siding was removed there was some rot discovered which required replacing 7.5 sheets of sheathing. This possibility was noted in the contract so it was not a surprise.All of the trim was wrapped with vinyl-coated aluminum which was cut and bent on-site. The entire job was moved like clockwork and was finished in 3 days. We were more than impressed with the quality, speed and overall professionalism with which this project was completed. We would not hesitate to recommend Beantown Home Improvement to family and friends.

    From the very start ,Dan, the sales representative was extremely helpful in answering the many questions we had regarding the siding of our house. He told us that we may have to wait a few months as they were booked, but if they had an … More opening they would side the house sooner. True to his word they came as soon as they could. Just two months after our first contact with Beantown, they were ready to side our house. They explained how the process would take place, and it all happened just as they said. The work was done in two days. The workers were extremely professional. On day one of the job I returned home from work and saw that they had removed all the old siding and shingles, and had already started framing the windows. My husband said there were 12 workers present on the second day. I came home from work to see that my entire house was sided. Several neighbors had stopped by to tell me how well they worked. They also commented on the great job. I was completely overjoyed to see my house, absolutely beautiful! Jim, the siding manager, was also fantastic, and he was very responsive to any questions we had. We are so please with the job they did and we would highly recomment them to anyone who wants a job done well. Thank you, Thank you Beantown.

    Beantown installed a new roof, 2 skylights & gutter guards onto our raised ranch. We couldn’t ask for better results! After receiving 5 estimates from different companies, Beantown was selected due to the products offered, stellar … More reviews, & overall price. The project manager, Derek Straughn, took lots of time explaining all the products & steps that would be taken on the day of installation. He offered loads of necessary information as well as being a good listener to our needs & pocketbook! The total job was impressively completed in one day! The crew stayed focused & professional the entire day! Clean up was impeccable!

    Beantown was great! I’m a first time homeowner and my roof was leaking and not sure from where or what to do. Jim came and assessed what was happening and explained exactly what he can do and how I could fix my ceiling. The next day, Tyler … More who is absolutely awesome came over to start the project for us! He was so knowledgeable and gave me such great honest advice on home improvements. I loved working with both of them, and when it’s time to replace my roof will def be calling back to work with them!
