Roof Installation

A Quality Roof Installation By A&E Queens Roofers

When it comes to the roofing industry there is almost no end to the types of materials and systems available. Luckily, our company has you covered as we are experienced with every type of roofing material and system available on the market today. It doesn’t matter if it ranges from low cost to practical, heavy-duty to reliable commercial options, or simple curb appeal, we have a team of experts that can handle you and your home’s every need.

Installing Metal Roofing In Queens

Metal is without a doubt one of the most used materials in Queens. This is because it not only comes backed with a number of helpful benefits, but it looks amazing when properly installed. And, this is not to even mention the fact that it will actually save you money on energy costs. These are just a few of the reasons that metal is so highly used in the area. Another reason that it is commonly used is that it accommodates for low slopes and high weather resistance. When dealing with metal roofs it is entirely possible to do a layover, but this is something that our company likes to avoid at all costs.

Removing the old materials not only allows our techs to suss out any potential future problems, but it gives them an overall better foundation to work with. Any repairs that need to be done in the process can be handled right on-site by our techs. Whether it is the framework or plywood, we have the tools and knowledge to handle all your needs. Once we have access to the foundation our company likes to add an extra layer of insulation before laying the metal. From this point, we will lay the rest of the panels and cover the remaining gaps with trim pieces just to ensure that the entire roof is sealed properly.

 

Installing Asphalt Shingle Systems

Asphalt is another popular option when it comes to roofing in Queens. When you look at everything asphalt has to offer it is pretty easy to understand why more and more homeowners are going with these systems. They are not only affordable, but they are extremely attractive and come in a wide range of color schemes. During our time in business, we have replaced many shingled roofs as well as repaired them. As with other installation, we like to remove the old roofing material just to get a better foundation. There will also be a new underlayment or paper laid down in order to ensure that you get the tightest water seal possible. From this point, it is basically just cutting shingles and adhering them in place.

 

Queens Shake Roof Installations

Wood shake systems are without a doubt a good option for anyone with a green conscious. Not only this, but you don’t have to worry about sacrificing the quality or beauty of the final results like you do with many other things when you try to be environmentally friendly. Our wood shake installations start with the raw material. Our wood shakes are specially ordered and cut right from red cedar trees. This is a durable type of wood that is not only able to resist weather, but it can resist insects and other unwanted critters. Once we have covered the roof properly with roofing felt we will go ahead and being laying the shakes. Throughout the process, the shakes will be interwoven strategically to create a strong, solid, waterproof system.

Installing Tile Roofing Systems In Queens

Any quality expert at Queen Roofers will tell you that longevity is always a major concern when replacing your roof. No one wants to or should have to spend more money on their roof after getting it replaced. If this is the case then you might want to call into question the installation or the materials used during the installation. All that aside, if longevity is your main concern, you cannot go wrong with clay or concrete tiles. These materials not only look great, but they last just about longer than any other type of roofing system available today. In fact, many homeowners have been known to get anywhere from 50 to 100 years out of one of these systems when properly installed.

 

EPDM Installations In Queens

EPDM roofs are usually referred to as rubber roofs in Queens and they are always an excellent option under the right circumstances. We usually like to take advantage of this system’s unique properties when dealing with large, flat surfaces like on large commercial buildings. With this type of system, you not only get a waterproof seal, but you get reflective properties as well as a variety of installation options. That being said, one of the major downsides to this system is that it doesn’t take much to mess up on the installation. And, once the installation is botched, you can expect problems for the foreseeable future unless you get someone in there that knows what they are doing to rectify the situation.

We are not only that go-to team, but we are here to ensure that this doesn’t happen to you or your building in the first place. This is why we like to strip all the old materials before putting back the new ones. Not only this, but we even go the extra mile and utilize a wooden deck to keep the rubber separated from the underlayment paper.

Built-Up Installations In The Queens Area

Built-up roofing systems are another popular option for commercial applications. This is especially true when there is a lot of heavy foot traffic or machinery located on the roof. These types of systems are made up of layers of hot asphalt, roofing felts, flood coat asphalt, and gravel. When taking advantage of this many layers, you can rest assured that when properly installed you are always going to get a quality roof that will handle the most extreme weather and climate conditions. One major downside is that the installation can be overwhelming and complex. When dealing with this many moving pieces, you want to make sure that you only choose a qualified team like us to handle the installation.

Slate Installations In Queens

Slate is a material that will last nearly a lifetime if properly installed. You combine this with its aesthetic value and many styling options and it should be easy to understand why we are more than willing to recommend these types of systems to our cherished customers. Our installation usually starts right with the substrate. This is the material that holds the nails later on in the process. This material could consist of wood boards, gypsum, or nail-able concrete. In addition to this, we like to also lay down an underlayment just to ensure that the roof stays 100 percent watertight throughout its life.

From this point, we will start laying our carefully sourced and shaped slates. After everything is carefully arranged in strategic order we will go ahead and install snow guards and edges because Queens and the surrounding areas get a lot of snowfall. We are always more than willing to go that extra mile for all of our customers and this is why more and more Queens residents are opting for our company when it comes to roofing repairs and replacements.
