Do You need A Roofing Contractor?

Sometimes it can be hard to determine whether or not you should contact a roofing company. Unfortunately, too many homeowners wait until the damage is already done before they contact professionals. This could lead to further damage to the interior of the home, the structure, the basement – and even down into the foundation.  The following signs are what you should call in a pro to take a look at if you see these on or near your residential roof:


Do You Have Missing Shingles?  Not only does it look bad, but missing shingles could allow moisture to get into the home, causing rot, mold, and other types of water damage.


Are There Shingle Granules on the Ground? If you find that there are granules on the ground around the house, or if they are piling up in the gutters, your shingles may be at the end of their life.


Do You Have Really Old Roofing? If your roof is more than twenty years old, we can take a look at it to see where it needs to be repaired or if it needs to be replaced completely.


Are You Seeing Curling Shingles? If your shingles are curling or buckling rather than lying flat, they could be allowing moisture into the structure of the home.

Different Roof Construction Types

  • Rubber or Gaco roofs: The Gaco family of brands offer best-of-class solutions for a variety of commercial and industrial applications including roofing systems, deck coating systems and liquid waterproofing membranes.

  • Asphalt shingle roofs: The familiar face of the roofing industry, asphalt shingles adorn countless homes across the tri-state area. Their cost-effectiveness and ease of installation make these shingles a very popular choice among homeowners.

  • Metal roofs: Recent years have seen a rise in the popularity of metal roofing. This movement certainly has its merits, as metal roofing offers several unique advantages for residential customers. It provides an excellent barrier against the elements and is extremely durable.

  • Slate roofs: If durability is what you value, then slate roofing is another excellent option. Like metal, it’s designed to last longer than any comparable product, plus it comes with the bonus of being visually appealing.

  • Wood roofs: Want to focus solely on aesthetics with your new roof? Wooden shakes are the way to go. They give a roof a very organic, almost colonial feel. Plus, they come in various options and won’t force you to break the bank.
