When you’re having a roof replaced or installing a roof on a new construction in New York, there are several different options you have for the roofing material that you choose from. Before deciding which roofing material is best for you, there are a few things you’ll need to consider.
The first thing to take into account is the “pitch” of your roof. The pitch is simply the angle at which your roof slopes: a higher pitch is a steeper angle, and a lower pitch is a flatter roof. Roofs with higher pitches don’t need nearly as much help with shedding water, as they can do it mostly on their own, but a flatter roof will need help from the roofing material to adequately shed water.
You’ll also want to consider how long you need the material to last and how much maintenance you’ll be able to provide it with. Then, think of the architecture and design of your New York home and how well different materials will complement the style.
Our professionals will work with you to make this decision easier, and we’ll also take into account your timeframe and budget. Here are some of the roofing options we have available:
Asphalt RoofingAsphalt shingles are the most cost-efficient choice, and that is part of the reason they’re the most popular roofing material. They require more repairs and maintenance than other choices, but those services and supplies will cost less as well.
Flat roofs need a lot of assistance with shedding water because they don’t have gravity on their side. Sometimes adequate shedding can be achieved with just materials, and other times you’ll need to have another system in place. These roofs can be difficult to work with, but our professionals can make sure they’re as functional and efficient as possible.
Rubber roofing has a longer lifespan than other materials, and it’s incredibly durable as well. Rubberized roofing material is available in both sheets and shingles, so it can be a great fit for any kind of roof, and it’s also completely customizable.

Sheet Metal Roofing
Metal roofing is rapidly becoming more popular. It’s much more difficult to damage than other materials, and it can last a lifetime if its properly installed and maintained.
Steel roofing is commonly preferred because it’s easy to install, fire retardant, and requires minimal maintenance and cleaning.
Hot roofs extend the insulation of your home all the way up through your attic which is great protection for your duct work and water pipes. It can also help you save on your energy costs.
When the temperatures rise, cold roofs can help you keep your cooling costs lower. They’ll also prevent ice dams from forming, and they can help you keep your wood roofing in the best condition possible.
