Sometimes roofs develop leaks years before the entire roof needs replacing, usually caused by localized damage such as cracked or missing shingles/shakes, or on a flat roof, a blistered or cracked area. In the Northeast this is common with the extreme change in weather throughout the year.
Our ability to perform structural steel and masonry work with our own trained and certified masons gives us the opportunity to provide our customers with prompt service and competitive pricing.
Brick pointing requires all loose or damaged mortar to be saw cut and removed in order for the repointing to bind to the bricks. Our masons are trained to work on historical projects. They will also be sure to blend the mortar to match the existing color.
A chimney rebuild is required generally due to persistent leaks, normally called by faulty flashing. Our chimney rebuilding is composed of two teams; masons and sheet metal mechanics. As a result, our customers get the best of two worlds, great masonry work and watertight chimney flashing.
When building an addition, or restoring your building, finding the original brick, stone, stucco and roofing materials to best blend with the existing structure could be time consuming and challenging. Give us the opportunity, we have an array of suppliers and the right staff to find and match the aesthetics of your building.
To prevent major damage, as well as save big bucks and stress, property owners are urged to keep their roofs and decks clear of heavy snow to minimize the likelihood of structural collapse. A cubic foot of dry snow weighs about seven pounds, while a cubic foot of wet snow weighs anywhere from 15 to 18 pounds. Before attempting to remove snow from roofs, take note that clearing roofs can be a dangerous task, taking the wrong step on an icy roof can easily send you sliding down a slippery slope.
