Benefits of Asphalt Roofs in NYC

Here are some benefits of Asphalt roofing that may  help you make an informed decision

  • Weather Resistance: Asphalt roofs excel in handling NYC’s diverse weather, from heavy snow to rain and intense sunlight. Their durability shields against temperature fluctuations and extreme weather conditions commonly experienced in the city.
  • Wind Resistance: High-quality asphalt shingles are designed to resist strong winds, crucial in a city prone to occasional storms and gusts.

Asphalt roofs are relatively affordable compared to many other roofing materials. This aspect is particularly attractive in NYC, where managing costs while ensuring quality is essential due to the high living expenses.


Asphalt roofs come in diverse styles, textures, and colors, offering a range of choices that can complement the architectural diversity of NYC. They can mimic the appearance of wood, slate, or tile roofs, providing flexibility in design without compromising durability or cost.

Our Maintenance and Care Procedures for Asphalt Roofs in NYC

We understand that maintaining asphalt roofs in NYC is essential for their longevity and performance. Here’s a breakdown of our procedures :

Regular Inspections:

  • Post-Weather Inspections: After extreme weather events like heavy storms, high winds, or snow, our team of experts will be on hand to inspect the roof for any damage. Check for loose or missing shingles, signs of leaks, or debris accumulation that could hinder drainage.
  • Routine Inspections: We conduct periodic inspections every six months to a year to catch minor issues before they escalate. We also look for cracked, curling, or blistering shingles, and examine flashing and seals around vents, chimneys, and skylights.


  • Debris Removal: When you engage our services our team will be available to help you remove debris such as leaves, branches, or trash from the roof surface and gutters. Clogged gutters can cause water backup, leading to potential roof damage and leaks.
  • Mold and Moss: In cities prone to pollution like NYC, algae, mold, or moss might grow on roofs. Our team uses gentle cleaning solutions to safely remove these growths without damaging the shingles.


  • Shingle Replacement: We will address damaged or missing shingles promptly to prevent water penetration and further damage to the roof structure. We will replace individual shingles or sections as needed.


  • Sealant and Flashing Checks: We will check and reapply sealant around flashing, vents, and chimneys to maintain a watertight seal. Repair any damaged flashing promptly to prevent leaks.
