Roofing isn’t for the faint of heart. Inclines can be steep and roofing materials are heavy and well worth their weight. While the sun is shining, we rarely worry about the roof, but when rain sheets the shingles or snow falls, we’re thankful for a quality job done with quality products. Without a doubt, roofing is an investment and you want to get it right the first time every time. In New York, our Builders FirstSource lumberyards want you to get it right too, so we partner with premium manufacturers such as Owens Corning and GAF—names you can trust to protect your home long after the sun goes down and seasons turn raw and cold.
In the Northeast, asphalt composite shingle-roofing systems remain the number-one preferred roofing choice not only because they’re durable and affordable but also because they allow for so many roofing options. Shingle colors, architectural shingle profiles and design styles are available to enhance every type of home. Equally important, however, you also have any number of technological advancements that can help a roof to perform better longer, including proprietary systems such as Owens Corning’s SureNail Technology for triple protection and their StreakGuard Algae Protection, as well as GAF’s Advanced Protection Shingles with Dura Grip or GAF’s StainGuard Plus Shingles with time-release technology.
At Builders FirstSource, you’ll find those options and more, as well as all of the roofing system components you need for a perfect installation—underlayment, ice and water barriers, ventilation intakes and exhausts, drip edge, ridge vents, starter shingles, hip and roof shingles, and even low slope roofing products specially designed to ensure moisture will never work its way past your roofing system. Roofing systems have never been more efficient, affordable, beautiful, and durable. And we offer the best of them. Of course, we can also help you with premium metal roofing systems that can last a lifetime, as well as enduring regional favorites such as cedar wood shingles and shakes. Whatever you’re looking for in a roof—whether it has to stand up to the gusty winds of Long Island or snowy drifts upstate—you can be sure that your nearest Builders FirstSource lumberyard is ready to stand and deliver it right to your site.
