Town of Huntington New York located in Smithtown in Suffolk County NY
Our customer had an older traditional home with a very aging and damaged flat roof. In addition, the flat roof was not draining rainwater properly due to improper pitch of the roof over many years. In addition, the homeowner requested that we match a railing that was installed on the opposite side of the house in another flat roof. Our first step was to remove all of the existing roof material down to the roof underlayment. We then installed new insulation on top of the existing wood underlayment to build up the roof and improve the pitch or angle that the water drains from once the new flat roof is installed. Our team then began the process of installing a torch down flat roof membrane. The existing siding material was stucco cement and our team installed copper flashing to waterproof the area between the house and the new flat roof. At that point, we installed copper drip edges to ensure that the water shedding from the roof drain directly into the gutter and not behind it. Our next step was to then coat the roof with a silicone waterproof coating. We then went about matching the existing roof railing with new weather resistant Azek building material (a man-made product that is extremely weatherproof and long lasting). Our team is particularly proud of this job and the craftsmanship that went into it!
Town of Babylon Located in Amityville, Suffolk County, New York
The customer reported a persistent roof leak. Our technicians inspected the slate roof and determined that several of the slate roof tiles near where the water was gaining entry were cracked and damaged. We cut the slate to size and installed new slate roofing material and eliminated the roof leak in Amityville, NY.
Town of Islip, Ronkonkoma, New York
A customer called us to report that they have been noticing dampness around the outer wall near the front door. The stucco siding was older and the rake boards (the wood trim boards that surround the peak of the roof) were very badly weathered. After consulting with the homeowner, we decided to apply new vinyl siding over the older stucco. The first step was to install insulation and a vapor barrier. We then installed the vinyl siding and aluminum trim capping over the rake boards to extend their life and waterproof them. Not only did this stop the dampness issue, but it also significantly improved the look and value of the home!
Town of Brookhaven located in Port Jefferson, New York
Our customer had any ongoing roof leak that was clearly entering within the first several feet from the edge of the roof and gutters. The customer did not wish to replace the entire section of roof, so our team began the process of removing all the roof shingles approximately 2 feet up around the perimeter where the roof leak was located. We removed the roof shingles and discovered that one particular section of the wood underlayment was severely rotted, and it was apparent that was a primary source area of the roof leak damage. The wood underlayment had to be replaced. We then installed new water and ice shield to waterproof that section of the roof and re-shingled the entire section. This roof leak has been eliminated.
Town of Smithtown, Saint James, New York
A regular gutter cleaning client in Suffolk County called us to ask if we do roof cleaning. The customer stated that their homeowner’s insurance company had done an inspection of their roof and determined that their roof was in poor condition due to mildew and algae buildup. The company directed them to clean the roof to prevent roof damage and/or roof leaks and repairs that could result. This is a quite regular direction made by insurance companies. Our project manager reviewed the job and lead our team that day in applying multiple applications of low-pressure roof cleanser followed by soft wash water flushing to remove the mildew and algae. The picture you see here shows the job in progress with half the roof in progress of roof cleaning and the other yet to cleaned. You can see the difference after roof washing is “night and day.” The roof cleaning turned out excellent and we had a happy customer and satisfied insurance company. Thanks for your business!
Tropical storms, hailstorms, and sunlight are common causes of roof damage. Many people are unaware that mildew and algae growth can also cause damage to a roof.
Make sure to only hire a licensed, and trained professional roofer, as mentioned previously. You don’t want to take chances when it comes to roofing. There is a strong possibility your shingles have not been installed accurately. Or, there could be damage due to a recent storm. To find out for sure, you’ll need to have your roof inspected thoroughly.
You can have a new roof installed on top of an existing roof. However, if your roof has problems (missing shingles, cracked shingles, algae growth, etc.) your old roof will need to be removed before we install a new roof. Otherwise, you will experience roofing problems that could result in expensive repairs. Whatever the case, we will present you with the most practical option.
Examples of roofing problems that cause leaking include extensive decay, multiple missing shingles, cracked shingles, blistering, and decay. Also, repeat issues not corrected through previous repairs and a leak that is getting progressively worse. Mold or mildew build up, water marks on ceilings, drips etc.
The best thing to do is schedule a roof evaluation if you have concerns. Our roofers will inspect our roof to see what’s really wrong and provide you with a solution and an accurate estimate. We will get to the source of the issue!
