When is the best time to replace my roof? 

New York's weather defiantly has 4 different seasons. You will want to repair or get your roof tear off done in the late spring to early fall in New York.  It is best to give the roofing shingles a chance to seal up with each other in the summer before any wind may start. Also if you can get the roofing contractor to use more nails when they are installing the shingles that will help. Some shingles are fine with a 4 nail pattern. But a 5 nail pattern may be the difference in your roof staying on the top of your house and being spread out all over the neighborhood.

When is the best time to replace my gutters?

Many roofing contractors also do gutters. If you are doing a complete roof tear off and replacement now is also the time to look good and hard at your gutters. If your roofer does not also do gutter work see if they have any referrals or find gutter guys here.

What are the best choices for roofing materials in New York?

One of the best and most affordable roofing materials is the 30 year laminate architectural roofing shingle. followed by the Presidential type shingle, these are a heavy duty high wind rated shingle for roofs with a pitch of 5/12 or greater.

Metal loc-seam roofing is also a great roofing system. It can have a lifetime warranty on the product and can be in multiple colors. the only bad thing about metal roofing is it can be really loud in a rain storm...

Ceramic Tile roofing is a system that is not really for any home. It is best in a dryer climate and the home needs to be engineered to handle the weight of the roofing material. Ceramic Tile Roofing is very brittle.

Cedar Shake Roofing, Yes Cedar is a great looking roof, but it needs to be maintained often, like every 3 years at least. Some HOAs will make you replace your roof with cedar shake roofing or the Presidential roofing system. I would go with the Presidential roofing.

Flat Roof Material, TPO or PVC roofing material is the newest way to roof a flat roof structure. TPO style roofing material has taken the place of torch down roofing. But there is still a need for torch down and hot tar roofing companies.

Here are some things you should do when hiring a contractor:

  • Never pay a contractor 100% of the quote upfront. Many New York roofing contractors will be happy to do a payment schedule. It is not unheard of for a roofing company to ask for 1/3 of the money up front.
  • Always ask for proof of insurance.
  • Always ask for referrals.
  • Doing a tear off can and will be messy, give the roofing company a chance to get the area cleaned up before you write a bad review or get mad.
  • Be Patient, The roofing contractor may be slower then you think they should be, but this is your roof on your house and you want it done right.
  • As much as you want to go up and look at the work being done on the roof, Do not go up on the roof. Have the contractor take video and photos for you to view of the work they are doing.
