City Roofing NYC


In colder areas, cold roofing is a great choice for buildings with pitched roofs. Any size roof slope can be dangerous when combined with a lot of snowfall. However, City Roofing NYC offers a fix. For more than ten years, our cold roofing professionals have assisted companies and homeowners in the NYC area in maintaining leak-free roofs and shielding their shingles. Our team of expert and well-versed cold roof specialists and installers knows how to complete the task correctly. Installed by City Roofing NYC, the best roofing company in NYC, cold roofing will protect your roof. The severe, frigid weather in NYC is the reason a cold roof can be ideal for you.

Snow will unavoidably fall heavy on your roof during the winter. Heat enters your attic through your ceiling because of gaps in your insulation. Because hot air rises, when this occurs, the heat warms your roof and causes the snow to melt. An “ice dam” is created when the melted water rushes down your pitch and refreezes at the overhang. Subsequently, as more snow melts, it backs up against your freshly built ice dam, resulting in water pools surrounding your roof. Your shingles will eventually start to leak as a result of these pools. The heat presents another risk. The heat trapped in your attic throughout the summer may actually fry your roofing shingles from the inside out since hot air is prevalent everywhere. This is especially harmful to cedar shingles and other wood roofing materials. Your roofing’s hot air will make the wood to raise, cup, and curl. This makes it necessary to pay for repairs on a regular basis or incur unattractive roofing damage that detracts from the beauty of your house. The installation of a cold roof from City Roofing NYC can avoid all of these problems.

The Cold Roofing Process

In basic terms, a cold roof system is an extra roofing layer placed on top of a lower roofing layer with blocks inserted to permit ventilation. An eave vent and ridge vent, designed for air-in and air-out ventilation in between the roof decks, aid the air. When this ventilation is present, your cold roof’s uppermost layer remains cool throughout the summer and winter, preventing shingle baking and snow melting. The construction technique is simple and easy to understand: Plywood is layered on top of your initial layer of skip sheathing. Subsequently, a waterproof bituminous membrane is applied, acting as an ice shield. Your vertical purlins and additional horizontal skip sheathing make up the following layer. A second layer of bituminous membrane is applied to that. The vertical blocking that is put in place to make the space between roofing decks will be the following layer. The following layer consists of installing more battens or sheathing. Then, on top, are your chosen roofing materials, such as shingles. In order to maintain water and snow flow during precipitation, gutters and a drip edge will be installed around the perimeter of the roof.
