Schedule a Historic Roof Inspection
If you have a historic roof that may need to be replaced or repaired due to its age or condition and are unsure how to proceed, the team at Emmons is here to help. We’ll send a Haag-certified roof inspector to your home to perform a comprehensive inspection at no charge and without obligation. Our inspector will provide you with an honest and professional assessment and answer any questions that you may have. If you’re interested in moving forward with historic roof restoration, our inspector can explore your roof repair and replacement options with you and provide an accurate estimate for all labor and materials.
Do You Need Historic Roof Restoration?
The age of the existing roofing material is the number one reason to schedule historic roof restoration, and Emmons advises our clients to reroof their homes proactively rather than reactively. Of course, when you’re dealing with slate or copper, for instance, that has been on the home a very long time, you may not know how old the roofing material is. In that case, it’s necessary to have an inspector who specializes in that material perform an assessment. Emmons also recommends an annual inspection and have any maintenance performed as soon as it’s needed. You should also watch for signs that need immediate attention, such as missing or damaged shingles, missing or rusted flashing, a sagging roofline, any growth on the roof, gutter problems, and water stains in the attic or sunlight peeking through.
Why You Should Choose Emmons
Emmons is a superior choice for your historic roof restoration because we’re an established and trusted roofing company that has been performing these restorations for decades. Our process is proven and refined, and when you hire us, you know exactly what to expect. Each project begins with a comprehensive inspection performed by our Haag-certified inspectors. We’ll then provide you with our assessment, and a project planner will work with you to determine how to proceed while maximizing your budget. Emmons will then provide a formal quote that itemizes all labor and materials. We’ll acquire all needed materials and set a schedule with you that minimizes disruptions. Our team will carry out the job while maintaining clean and safe work areas at all times. We’ll perform a cleanup at the end of each day and an extensive cleanup when the job is complete, and finally, the project lead will perform a walkthrough with you to ensure that our workmanship exceeds your expectations.
The Roofing Materials We Work With
Emmons’ roofing teams have the skill and experience needed to install and repair the many different roofing materials used for historic roof restoration. That includes traditional and architectural asphalt shingles, cedar shingles and shakes, clay and concrete tiles, and metal roofing, including copper but also aluminum, steel, and zinc.
Emergency Historic Roof Repair Services
If you’ve experienced sudden damage to your historic roof, such as due to a storm, Emmons is available to help. We have emergency roof repair specialists who are on call at all hours of the day and night, including weekends and holidays. Our team will come out to your home as soon as possible to assess the damage and develop a restoration plan. Even if repairs cannot begin right away due to ongoing severe weather, our team can at least stabilize the situation so that the damage doesn’t worsen before the full historic roof restoration can be performed.
Trusted Historic Roof Replacement
Historic roof repair is the most affordable option and allows the property owner to preserve as much of the existing material as possible. However, repair may not be the practical path forward for a historic roof restoration due to the age or condition of the material. In that case, our team is able to carry out a comprehensive roof replacement, which can encompass the underlayment, decking, roof ventilation, and other components as needed. Often, the homeowner will choose a roofing material that is as close to the original material as possible, but our team is also able to convert historic roofs from one type of roofing material to another.
Hire a Company You Can Trust
Historic roof restoration presents a unique set of challenges, and even among the licensed roof contractors serving New Jersey and Pennsylvania, most lack the experience and resources needed. Even something as inherent to the job as material acquisition can be a big hurdle for roofing companies that lack those networks. Emmons has the expertise and other resources you need, and we’re going to restore your historic roof with precision and in a manner that will stand the test of time.
