Roof Repair in New York City

If you need a roof leak repair or general roof repair, it is critical that you find the right contractor as soon as possible. Because of the unpredictable New York City weather, even the smallest leak can quickly lead to further water damage and eventually something far worse. The longer you wait, the worse the problem becomes, and the more expensive the cost of repair. The cost of related repairs can easily exceed the cost of the roof repair itself. This is also why it is critical to find the right contractor for the job. Improper or incomplete repairs can also leave you open to further damage.

Did you know that close to 40 percent of all problems in buildings are due to the intrusion of water?[1] Of course, most of that water comes through building roof leaks.

Minor damage from roof leaks can include discoloration on beams, ceilings, and walls. If you don’t quickly attend to your building roof leak, things will only get worse. Mold and mildew, rotting structural wood, and even electrical problems can lead to the need for much more than a roof repair. You should have your roof inspected regularly, and when you see the first sign of trouble, it is time to find the right contractor for your roof repair.

Whether you are in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, or Westchester County, you will find many contractors offering to handle your building roof leak or other exterior leak repairs. You can save time, money, and frustration by asking some simple upfront questions before hiring a firm for your roof repair, reconditioning, or reconstruction. 

First of all, ask the company how long they have been in business. We have been serving New York City and the five boroughs since 2007. Next, ask if the company is licensed. A license shows that the company has demonstrated an understanding of all proper building codes and is following all appropriate regulations. Our license number is posted right on our website, and we are always happy to share more information. 

Finally, ask if the contractor is bonded. A bond covers you in the event of any problems with the job like incomplete work, failure to acquire a permit, or property damage. Our customers will tell you that those are not issues that you will face with us. However, we are bonded and insured for your peace of mind.

So, if you have a roof leak or need a roof repair in New York City or the surrounding boroughs, act quickly before it becomes a major issue and causes even more problems. More importantly, make sure that you hire a qualified and experienced contractor to ensure your roof leak is repaired right the first time.
