Concerned About Your Roof?

Learn about the Key Danger Signals of a failing roof at www.gaf.com/Roofing/Residential/Key_Danger_Signals.

If your roof is showing any of these symptoms, call us today at 607-844-3993607-844-3993! We’ll schedule an appointment to have one of our roofing specialists inspect your roof and help you select the right roofing system for your home.

Roof Inspections:

The old saying about “an ounce of prevention….” is certainly true about roofing.  Regular inspections of your roof are a must as they can identify problems early, giving you time to take action before a crisis occurs.  It’s also a good idea to inspect the roof after any severe weather such as hail storms.  Hail damage is difficult to see from the ground and usually requires an up-close inspection by a professional.  A failing roof can allow moisture to penetrate the surface, which, over time, will cause permanent – and costly – damage to the structure of your home.

Our experienced roofing specialists can recognize condition issues, properly diagnose the cause(s) and advise you on any repairs needed to extend the life of your roof or the best options available if a full replacement is necessary.

We Know The Signs Of Trouble:

  • Stained Rafters In The Attic
  • Soggy Insulation In The Attic
  • Sagging Rafters And Roof Decking
  • A History Of Ice Dams In The Winter
  • Cracked, Curled Or Missing Shingles
  • Excessive Algae Or Moss Growth
  • Loose Or Missing Flashing Around Vents And Chimneys
  • Cracked Caulk On Flashing
  • Cracked Rubber Boots Around Vent Pipes
  • Missing Or Failed Gutter Systems
  • Excessive Amounts Of Shingle Granules In The Gutters

Don’t wait until you’re looking at blistered ceilings, streaks down your walls, puddles on the floor or yet another winter ice dam!  Call Crown today for a no-cost inspection of your roof and let us put together a repair or replacement plan that will give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing the roof over your head is doing its job to protect your home and family!

Emergency Repairs:

Given the harsh and unpredictable weather in the Ithaca, Cortland and Syracuse areas of Central New York State, protecting your home from Mother Nature’s harmful effects is critical.

When your roof suffers damage as a result of severe weather, hail, falling trees or ice dams, you shouldn’t wait to make repairs.  Call Crown Construction immediately for a quick response to stop leaks, prevent further – more costly – damage and restore your roof’s ability to protect your home and family.  Our roof repair experts can make short-term repairs to prevent further damage.  We’ll also work with your homeowner’s insurance agent to document the damages and develop a plan for permanent repairs.

When disaster strikes, don’t delay and risk further damage – contact Crown Construction Inc. right away!

What To Expect During Your Roofing Job

  • A new roof is a major renovation to your home so we will go over all job details prior to installation.
  • We will have proper insurances with current coverage.
  • Our professional roofing license will be up-to-date.
  • When we arrive at your home, we will try not to disturb you and your neighbors.
  • We have a NO DRUGS or ALCOHOL policy in our company.  No employee will use drugs or alcohol during working hours.
  • We will not play loud music while on your job.
  • We will not enter your home without direct permission from you if access to the attic is necessary.
  • We will do our best to cover your walkways, bushes, flower beds and exterior walls to protect them from damage.
  • Dust and dirt may filter down through the roof deck onto items stored in the attic – especially if spaced boards were used for the deck.  We recommend that you cover valuable items in the attic to protect them from dirt and debris.
  • Please remove valuable objects from your walls, occasional shaking could jar them loose.
  • Satellite dishes, etc. on the roof may need to be removed, but will be reinstalled by us.  You may need to reprogram it.
  • Cars should be parked away from the work area for protection from debris and so that they will not be blocked-in by the dumpster or our work vehicles.
  • Removal of the existing roof may be needed for one or more of the following reasons:
    • Too many layers of old roofing material (max allowed is 2).
    • The exposed shingles are badly warped or buckled and will not provide a smooth enough surface for the new roof.
    • The underlying roof boards are deteriorated and need replacement.
    • There are significant algae or moss growth on existing roofing.
  • During the process of removing the old roof and installing the new one, there is a short period of time when there is no roof on the house.  We make every effort to keep this exposure period as short as possible and use temporary protection, as required, but with unexpected weather, you might experience a leak.  We are responsible for any damage that might occur, but it may still be an inconvenience.
  • A roof removal is extremely messy.  A complete cleanup is not possible every day.  Expect that your house and yard may not be very attractive while the job is in progress.
  • New metal flashings may also be required.  Proper installation of flashings may require removal and reinstallation of siding which unavoidably damages the paint finish of the siding.
  • Existing gutter systems may need to be removed and replaced.
  • At the end of each day and at job completion, a large magnet will be run around your yard to pick up any loose nails.
  • Please be patient with us while the job is in progress.  When the job is completed, be assured that you will have a great looking roof using the best materials.
  • Final cleanup is as thorough as possible but you might occasionally still find a nail or small pieces of shingle debris embedded in the ground.
  • Minor damage to house, shrubbery, lawn, and siding may occur during the removal of the old roofing.
  • Our 2-year service warranty will be in effect upon completion of your job.
  • All jobs will be thoroughly inspected for your satisfaction before final payment is collected.
  • After serving Central New York State for more than 25 years, we stand behind our work and will address any concerns promptly.
