How Much Does a Roof Replacement Cost in NJ?

Wind, rain, snow and sun are all enemies of building materials. In the middle Atlantic, there’s no lack of any of them. Winds howl when hurricanes approach. Summer thunderstorms sometimes generate Category One hurricane-force winds. In the summer, the sun’s ultraviolet rays beat down on NJ roofs. Tropical systems bring torrential rains. Nor’easters dump feet of snow. Throughout the course of thousands of days, nature may eventually take a toll.

Fortunately, northern NJ roofs are engineered to withstand nature’s wrath. Over time, however, shingles get brittle or lose their protective granules. Their adhesive strips no longer hold. High winds lift them and sometimes break them. Roof replacements in NJ are then often needed.

By | Residential

In New Jersey, extreme winter weather events are all too common. Heavy snow, sleet and freezing rain strike. High winds make matters worse. Powerful nor’easters develop as arctic air from Canada collides with the warmer, more humid air coming in off the Atlantic.

At times, northern New Jersey gets hit with snow measured in feet. In fact, there’s been as much as 52 inches of snow on the ground at one time, at Canistear Reservoir. When that record was set, 30 inches had already accumulated. Then, a new storm dropped another two feet of snow in the area.

Here’s Why Roof Snow Removal Could Save Your House

By | Residential

For many NJ residents, their home is the largest single investment. Homeowners do everything they can to protect their investment. They guard against risks that could put a home in jeopardy. They invest in high-quality roofing, siding and other materials that help to resist high winds and heavy precipitation.

In the winter, there’s often snow and ice to contend with. Nor’easters sometimes bury northern New Jersey homes under feet of snow. Winds may whip the snow into drifts many feet deep, even on rooftops. Sometimes, this snow is very wet and heavy. Subsequent rainstorms may saturate the snow to make it even heavier. 

In some situations, snow may stress residential roofs to the point of collapse. An AccuWeather post sums it up well, “Heavy snow can pose a serious risk to roofs and cause some to collapse, creating dangerous conditions.” These dangerous conditions call for roof snow removal to be performed by a professional.
