"I had a major leak in my roof, and they responded immediately. They were professional and dedicated to the quality of their work."
Daniel S.- Roof, Lodi, NJ
"They took the time to explain WHY my roof needed to be replaced as opposed to just being fixed. I was amazed - some contractors want to just do a quick fix and be on their way - and much of the time, it doesn't even solve the problem! I'm using this site for all my home needs! They were knowledgeable, courteous, and caring. And installed our new roof in an efficient manger, and were meticulous in cleanup."

Roofing Replacement

Roofing companies generally go by the title “roofer” or “roofing contractor.”  They specialize in helping homeowners install new roofs, as well as fixing common roofing problems.  A roofing job is a major investment, and it is important to have full confidence in the roofer.  Getting good references is always helpful in the process of hiring a roofer.  Roofers commonly use materials like shingles, tar paper, roofing felt, and roofing nails.  The following is a guide to the types of installations roofing contractors can do:

Asphalt Shingle Roofing – This is the most popular choice of roofing material, and is known to be a very economical and low-maintenance choice of roofing.

Wood Shake Roofing – These are made out of long, tapered planks of wood and can provide a very attractive look to one’s home.  The best roofing materials are said to come from cedar or redwood.

Composite Roofing – Composite roofing materials are made of hard plastic, wood, and other recycled materials, and function well in extreme weather conditions without weather damage.  Composite roofing is available in several colors and doesn’t require regular sealing.

Metal Roofing – This type of roofing is usually manufactured in steel, copper, aluminum, or stainless steel.  This roofing can be coated in many different types and colors of paint.  It frequently carries a warranty of 50 years.

Flat Roofing – An advantage of flat roofing is its accessibility and relatively easy assembly.  Materials used for this type of roofing installation include tar, gravel, bitumen, and rubber.

Foam Roofing Insulation – This type of insulation consists of polyurethane foam, and is applied directly to the roof of a building so as to protect against heat or cold.

Single Ply Roofing – This roofing is composed of flexible sheets of compounded synthetic materials, which are known to provide strength, flexibility, and durability.

Natural Slate Roofing – This type of roofing involves using stones, and it is known as a top-quality, long-lasting roofing material.  Depending on the quality of the material, the roof may last 50 years or more.

Traditional Tile Roofing – This roofing usually costs a lot more than other roofing materials, but it is also known to last longer.  Materials include clay and terra cotta.
