Roofers in Great Neck

Roofer Working on Roof in Great Neck

The Saber Team sat down with Isaac from GG Roofers and asked him to tell us what one needs to know before deciding how to fix (or build) a roof. It was a fascinating conversation that covers some of the most common questions regarding roofing.

How much does a roof cost?

The pricing of a roof varies drastically, and without know some of the important factors, it will usually be impossible to determine.

Here are some of the questions that GG Roofers will typically ask before giving a quote:

  • How large is the roof?
  • What type of roofing do you want (require)?
  • Do you need the job expedited?
  • Will the roof need to be removed? And how many layers are already there?
  • If the roof deck is in good condition?
  • Is there additional work needed (in addition to the roofing)?

GG Roofers always encourages people to call them up and request a quote. They are always available and they pride themselves on their high-level customer service.

How often should a roof be serviced?

Every 25-30 years, replace your asphalt roof. In New York, due to the poor weather, the roof should be replaced or serviced every 15-20 years.

Slate roofing lasts longer. Slate roofing needs to be replaced every 50 years or so.

What are the signs that a roof needs replacing?

Asphalt Roofs

  • When the granola of the roof begins to shed, and the black fiberglass begins to show.
  • Sections of the roof begin to fall off the roof. This means that the singles are too dry.
  • Green fungus growing from between the slats.
  • Punctures and holes.
  • Sections of the roof are bulking upwards or misaligned.

Slate Roofing

  • The slates falling off the roof. Please note that falling slates are extremely dangerous. If your slates begin to fall off the roof, you need to call a roofer immediately.
  • Cracked slates
  • Uneven spacing between slates
  • Stains on the ceiling inside the house

How much does it cost to hire a professional to examine my roof?

The average roofing company usually charges between $150-$200 for a quote. GG Roofers provides FREE quotes with every job. If you need a quote, a representative from GG Roofers will come to your house and inspect your roof at no extra cost.

How long does the roofing process take?

A standard house will take 1-2 days to get an asphalt roof. A slate roof will take longer, and will usually take between 4-6 days.

What is the cheapest roofing to use?

The cheapest option will usually be three-tap-asphalt shingles. We always suggest architecture-design-asphalt shingles. They are almost the same price, but they are much thicker and come with a longer manufacturer warranty. Marquise-asphalt shingles are more expensive than the architecture design shingles, but they retain the characteristic three-tap shingle design, without compromising the quality and warranty.

Which roofing option lasts the longest?

Synthetic slate roofing lasts the longest but is typically three times more expensive than typical asphalt shingles. The synthetic shingles replaced the old style slate roofing and will last up to 100 years, and will also come with a 50-year warranty.
