The summer has gone by very quickly and Brothers Roofing was very busy performing numerous roofing repairs and roof installations throughout the Central New Jersey regions. The cities of Hamilton, Lawrenceville, Trenton, Princeton, Ewing, West Windsor as well as others in Mercer County were common grounds for much of our work. We took on both residential and commercial customers.
One recent job that stands out is an emergency repair that we performed at a local (privately owned) paint store here in Hamilton Township, NJ. The owner contacted us and informed us that he had a fairly large amount of water coming into the store and needed repairs ASAP before more damage would occur inside.
Upon further examination we found:
- Only 6" of leak barrier installed
- Improperly nailed shingles
- Improperly installed shingles (large gaps)
- Damaged sheathing
- Improperly installed drip edge
We got to work as soon as the downpours stopped. We truthfully cannot stress the importance of proper installation techniques as well as the use of superior materials. We have written several articles in the past on the topics of the importance of vital roof replacement steps as well as common mistakes made by roofers. The latter is often a result of trying to finish the job quickly to achieve a better bottom line or undertaking a job based on the competitiveness of the given market. Although an important factor, a roofing job should not be rewarded based on the price alone. The roofer should give you a detailed proposal so that you can compare exactly what will be done at your home or business.
At Brothers Roofing , we take the time to properly perform your roof replacement, as we know this service will protect you and your family for many years to come. We do not take shortcuts to make a few extra bucks or to charge our customers a few bucks less just to get the job. We provide honest roofing services while using quality supplies. Please do not be fooled by local roofers that are willing to beat any price, as more often than not the quality of labor and materials is impacted by such decision making.
