Can you do it yourself?
Sure! But we don't really think you should. It's hard work and requires a level of precision to prevent future leaks or premature weathering. Also, if you're afraid of heights and aren't in shape, it's probably not the best idea. It can be deadly to fall off a roof without the proper training or harness equipment. But, if you can get onto a ladder, climb on your roof and walk around on it for a few hours carrying a bunch of shingles, then we say go!
We say leave it to Yonkers Renovation
"Roofin' ain't easy" as we like to say, but our professional team is up for challenges. Every one of our roofing experts is trained and experienced to get the job done right. Heavy rain and windstorms can allow water to get under shingles, even ones that were properly installed. Ice buildup can cause water to seep under shingles and leak into tour home! Our professionals use a high quality waterproof sealant under every shingle to prevent water from leaking in.
Our second layer of protection is asphalt-saturated felt, which doubly protects from the elements and keeps the roof dry in case shingles fail in wind storms.
Before we begin...
We need to start by, you guess it, tearing off the old roof! This can be a messy process, so we bring tarps to cover gardens or landscaping around your house to protect it from falling debris. We don't want you to find nails for years to come in your flower beds.
Safety is our number one priority, for our crew and for your family. All of our professionals know how to properly utilize safety gear, but most importantly, common sense and good judgement. Do not let an unexperienced team perform maintenance on your roof. We have over a decade of experience and know exactly what we are doing to get the job done right, every time.
