Long Island Roof Repair
Cross County Roofing specializes in complete roof tear offs Long Island. There comes a point when roof repairs Nassau County simply can’t solve all the issues for an aging roof. While some commercial property owners will opt to lay new shingles over the old ones, others opt for Suffolk County roof demolition because they know that, over time, leaks could have damaged the underlying components of the roof.
Why you should tear off an old roof?
Building codes say you can put a second layer of shingles over the first layer of your Long Island commercial roofing, but it’s better to strip off the old shingles and start with a clean slate and opt for Suffolk County roof demolition. There’s anecdotal evidence that new shingles installed over old shingles won’t last as long as a single-layered roof, though most manufacturers offer the same warranty for both methods. However, if you are planning to keep the building for the long term, we suggest ripping off the old shingles with our Suffolk County roof demolition service so you can:
