About Roofing

We work with all materials including those most popular for the North Shore of Long Island. On the North Shore Asphalt shingles are the most popular because of their outstanding durability and performance to keep the rain out. Asphalt shingles don’t just come in black or gray anymore. We have many colors and shades to choose from that will enhance your home’s appearance as well as maintain its value and safety.


Gray, dark brown, and black shingles are the most popular but we also have shades of gray, green, blue, and red.

Depending on the color of your home and how you want the roof to accent or contrast with the paint, we can find a color that works for you. We’ll be happy to bring samples, evaluate your project and let you know our opinion of the best way to get your project done.

The color of the shingles isn’t just for athletics or looks though… having a lighter color shingle on your roof will deflect the sun, while a darker color will absorb the rays. We’ll help you choose the right type of shingle that not only looks good but performs well for your project. We are your commercial and residential contractor near you… we are your hometown roofing company. 

About Roofing- Glen Cove Roofing

Roof Inspection

There are many components of the roof besides the shingles and we can inspect all aspects of your roof and determine what might be needed. To prevent damage many of these parts should be serviced on a regular basis. For example if your roof has a valley, or a v cut angle along the junction of two roofs this can be an area of concern. You see most of the water is flowed to that point, creating a river through the valley… These valleys should be sealed on a regular basis and properly inspected by a roofing contractor.

Does My Roof Need To Be Replaced? 

Roof in neeed of repair

The obvious tell-tale-sign that your roof needs to be replaced is if you are seeing loose or missing shingles… or more obvious than that, a leak… but there are other signs. On average a roof of asphalt in the North East can last up to 20 or 30 years without an issue. If you are unaware of the age of your roof, we can do an inspection and determine the shingle’s wear and tear, if they are dry, cracked, etc.

Although asphalt shingles can last 20 to 30 years, and tile shingles even longer, there are a number of components of the roof that should be serviced and inspected on a regular basis. 

We can inspect your roof for any possible issues such as missing sections, wind damage or water/rain damage. 

As you are snuggled in your bed year hear the peaceful sounds of rain- soothing, calming, but wait- Is that dripping inside or outside? Don’t despair, but call us asap so we can prevent any further damage.


Storm Damage Repair

Do you have damage from a storm? Here on the North Shore of Long island, while they are not as frequent as some parts of the country, it does happen. We have Emergency repair available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Don’t let the damage that has occurred to your room do even more damage to your home. Don’t leave it alone call us before it can lead to any serious damage.

Even a cracked or torn shingle can allow water to leak in from rain, snow or sleet. If this water is allowed to flow it can seep into your walls causing a great deal of damage. Ceiling tile or sheetrock can be affected by just a little bit of water.

Glen Cove Roofing- Storm

Are you seeing an area of your ceiling above your bed that looks like rust? No it’s not the walls rusting, it’s water seeping in. Call us today to evaluate the situation. We will work closely with your insurance agency to make sure that your repair is done right and on time before you have any serious problems. If left unattended water damage can cause the plywood (sheathing) do become damaged. This is the foundation of your roof, should it become weakened due to water damage it could lead to buckling and eventually to fall in. Also known as the roof decking, if any leakage or damage is caught in time, this will not have to be replaced or repaired.

Weather Conditions and Your Roof

Weather Conditions

We’ve worked on many homes throughout the North Shore, we know the weather conditions your roof will be facing.  Snow, ice, rain, strong summer sun, trees and leaves, we seem to have it all here. These environmental and clement conditions can, quite frankly, wreak havoc on your roof.



First, and perhaps most obvious, is the snow build up. While it seems to be happening less frequently these days, snow does still fall on Long Island and you and your roof should be prepared for it. If snow seems to be building up on your rooftop, especially if it seems to be over one area, say a bedroom or empty attic space, it could lead to damage. Sometimes in a part of your roof where it seems that snow is milting you might think that is a good thing, however what can happen is that the water can form into ice, which is heavier and can also clog your drainage and gutters.  We can evaluate your situation and determine the most effective and cost-effective way of addressing these issues.


Trees and Your Roof

Trees are a beautiful part of Long Island, but they are also a bit of a nuisance and a potential hazard. If leaves are starting to build up on your roof (usually in the eves) or valleys. If these leaves sit on the roof, especially in the valley, too long, they will eventually decay. The decaying leaves can not only create moss on your roof, but eventually lead to becoming soil. This soil will then retain water which will create a moisture layer on your shingles. This can rapidly decrease the integrity of your shingles and should be addressed as soon as possible.

We will determine the best way to stop this from happening. Perhaps it means cleaning out your gutters or most often installing a metal flashing in the valley. This valley will not only allow the water to flow through the valley faster, but will also prevent damage of the shingles underneath, creating a double barrier of your roof. To ensure that the work on your roof is done correctly it is important to use an experienced roofing company.  


Sun Damage

While we all enjoy our hot summer days at Jones Beach, it is possible that your roof isn’t enjoying it quite as much. You see, no matter what type of shingles are on your home, asphalt or slate or any other types… the hot sun, just as with our skin, can damage. The sun’s rays can cause the adhesive or material to weaken. If this happens, over time, the area could present a potential roof leak. While most roofs  are guaranteed for 30 years (which our new installation area) there are times when you should have a professional take a look at your roof and evaluate any protentional problems… before they lead to a leak.

Q and A
About Roofs

Glen Cove Roofing

How Many Layers Can I Have?

For years in New York State it was acceptable to have as many as 3 layers of shingles on a home but recent codes has required that no more than two layers be applied. In many of the older homes in our area as well as the Victorian homes you might already be past this limit. Having too many layers of shingles on your home makes it difficult for the top layer to adhere to the sheeting making it a possibility that the shingles might come dislodged due from wind. Also, having too many layers can also cause undue weight on your roof. We can inspect your rooftop and determine whether or not all the old shingles need to be removed. We will remove the old shingles of your home in the most efficient and effective manner. We will dispose of the old shingles with environmental respect without damage to your yard, home or property.

What is the Cost of a New Roof? 

National average is around $8,500 to $14,3000 but the exact cost depends on the size of the roof, the materials you plan to install (TYPES OF MATERIALS). We will give you a full- free- estimate with a complete breakdown of everything we can provide. We’ll also give you a specific timeline of the project letting you know exactly when we will be starting and when we will be finishing.

Remember, we are your neighbors here in Glen Cove and we want to make sure you are happy with our services. Just as with any local business we treasure our customers and we strive to make you happy throughout the entire process with as little impact on you and your family.

Besides Asphalt

Besides asphalt, there are a number of other types of roof coverings we provide. Also popular on Long Island is Slate roofs, especially for some of our Victorian homes. We are trained to work with slate, keeping the modern techniques in mind. A slate roof, while beautiful and durable, still needs attention from time to time.

What Do You Work With?

We would with the top suppliers of roofing materials in the country and can provide a variety of options for your roofing needs. We work with asphalt shingles, rubber roofing, slate, stone coated steel, rubber slate, clay and concrete titles as well as eco-friendly materials.

Have solar tiles or panels on your roof? Are you concerned that they might have caused an issue with your roof? Don’t despair, we can inspect the areas and seal your solar panels. We can also work around any solar systems when replacing or repairing your roof.

Flat Roof

If you have a flat roof, either residential or commercial these roofs are a prime subject to damage due to the wear and tear. Of left unattended, flat spots or sagging areas can lead to pooling. If the water ends up pooling it can cause the roofing materials to be compromise leading to a leaky area. Rolled roofing on commercial or residential roofing in flat areas in relatively inexpensive and should your roof need to be patched or completely replaced, we can help in both the residential and commercial areas.
