Many homeowners suffer through leaks in their roof on rainy days by putting out pots and pans to gather the water and then dumping them out when they’re full.
LEAK DETECTION & REPAIR
We believe that the reason for this is because they believe that they need a new roof and they just don’t have the money for it. A new roof is not always what a leaking roof might need. It may just be a simple repair and we are the Long Island roof repair company that you need for the job. We begin the Long Island roof repair process with a thorough inspection of your roof and gutters, paying special attention to any areas in which you have previously noticed leaks in the past or where you are currently experiencing leakage. We then determine the cause of the problem and decide on a plan to fix it. Homeowners and business owners sometimes do not understand that the average roof will take a beating over the course of its lifetime, especially give the severity and duration of the storms that we have been seeing on Long Island in the past few years. The climate on long island can make for freezing temperatures in the winter followed by scorching heat waves in the summer time. Your roof is the closest point on your home to the sun and the temperatures on your roof can often reach in the triple digits on a hot summer day. This all adds up to your roof shingles having to go through quite a bit of wear and tear, so it’s not uncommon that you may need to have your roof repaired at some point.
Although skylights aren’t as popular as they once were, they are still a beautiful addition to a home and serve to let the light shine in while keeping the interior of your home protected from the exterior elements. The problem with skylights is that they are a roofing element that have really only been around for the past 30 years or so. In the beginning, contractors would install them to the best of their ability, but the materials and technology required to make them long-standing fixtures in any home just were not available at the time, which is why many homeowners with skylights experience issues and require repair over the course of the lifespan of the skylight. We are an experienced Long Island roof repair company that can take care of your skylight issues and let you enjoy the beauty that they offer to your home.
Roof Caulking & Flashing
Leaks coming from the roof are not immediate indicators of problems with the roof itself. Many roof leaks are cause by improper caulking or spaces and rips in the flashing and it can easily be repaired. Flashing is a copper or aluminum sheet that is usually placed around pipes or around the base of the chimney where it meets your roof line. Due to normal wear and tear, flashing may release from the roof and may need to be caulked and set in place again. Our Long Island roof repair services can easily repair your worn flashing or re-caulk any existing surfaces, with minimal to no down time to you.
All Other Types of Roofing Repair
Long Island roof repair is an important aspect in owning a home or building. Often times, what begins as the slightest leak may grow and spread. If a leak is left untouched, it can spread to surrounding areas of the roof, creating more damage, continue to damage the ceiling and walls of your home, and create a humid environment in the home that would be ideal for the growth of harmful mold, pests and even termites. We are experienced in all phases of roof repair and our company prides itself on its reputation and commitment to quality.
