Roofing

The roof plays a key role in preserving your home and maintaining its value in the resale market. The life of the roof depends on the roofing materials used, the local weather conditions, and the attention given during the installation process.  D S Brody does not compete with other roofing companies that will complete a roofing project in 1-2 days. We do not rush our work and take great care throughout the roofing process to ensure that flashing, underlayment, and membranes are installed properly. Since our company specializes in masonry too, we always inspect the chimneys and if need be, will recommend repair and offer a quote for that work as well.  When we install lead flashing we always set it in mortar joints, 1 1/2″ deep.  Please contact us if a quality roofing installation is of primary concern to you.

    We install and repair the following:

  • Asphalt shingle
  • Rubber (EPDM)
  • Wood shingle
  • Slate
  • installation of snow guards and heat wire
  • Aluminum gutter installation

10 Most common mistakes we’ve seen (made by other roofing contractors of course).

2. Not keeping shingles aligned.

3. Not overhanging shingles at eaves.

4. Improper nailing of shingles.

5. Reusing old flashing around chimneys and soil stacks.

6. The use of tar…………….NO!

7. Neglecting to keep hip and ridge shingles in a straight line.

8. Using only 3 nails or speed nailing, it only takes a second to install a fourth.
