Roofing Questions

The investment for a new roof in Long Island generally ranges between $5,000 to $30,000. This pricing is influenced by factors like roof dimensions, material choices, and job complexity. Additionally, the roof’s design and specific shingle types can alter the final cost.

Warning signs needing attention for your roof include lost or damaged shingles, consistent leaks, shingle particles in gutters, or a visibly drooping structure.

In Long Island, a roof’s lifespan typically spans from 20 to 30 years, but this varies with the material used. For example, metal roofs might last up to half a century, while those with asphalt shingles are expected to endure around 20 years.

During roof replacements, Homecrew Construction can install skylights, enhancing your home with natural light.

Siding Questions

For Long Island homes, vinyl and fiber cement stand out for their durability. Vinyl siding is budget-friendly and easy to maintain, whereas fiber cement excels in longevity and weather resistance.

Upgrading to new siding boosts insulation, minimizes heat loss, and can lead to lower energy expenses. It also helps in sealing off air leaks, increasing your home’s comfort level.

Siding installation costs in Long Island vary, typically ranging from $2,000 to $35,000, influenced by the choice of materials and project intricacies.

The installation of siding usually takes several days to a week, depending on the size of the home and the type of siding material.

Chimney Questions

Yearly cleaning and inspection are advised for chimneys in Long Island to maintain functionality and safety, especially in regions with high usage during colder months.

Usual repairs in this region include mending flue cracks, crown restoration or replacement, resolving water intrusion, and masonry work to maintain the chimney’s structure.

Homecrew Construction is equipped to handle both chimney and masonry restoration, ranging from minor repairs to full-scale reconstructions.

Visible brick damage, rusting in dampers or fireboxes, spalling bricks, and weakening mortar are signs that your chimney requires professional repair.

Gutter Questions

Gutter guards help prevent debris build-up, lessen the frequency of cleanings, and protect against deterioration. They’re particularly beneficial in regions with dense foliage or substantial rainfall.

Cleaning gutters biannually, in spring and autumn, is ideal. If surrounded by trees, more frequent cleanings might be necessary to avert blockages.

In Long Island, aluminum and vinyl gutters are favored for their combination of durability and cost-effectiveness. Aluminum offers rust resistance and lightness, while vinyl is known for its ease of installation and low maintenance.

Custom gutter installations are offered to suit the unique needs of your home, ensuring both efficient performance and aesthetic harmony with your home’s design.
