Residential New Construction


Settle for nothing less than quality installation.

CRS is Best-in-class

CRS has an edge over the competition when it comes to new residential construction. Successful projects require that all contractors do their work up to code and without delay. At CRS, we have years of experience coordinating our responsibilities with those of other construction professionals on the job.

A solid local contractor like CRS is often more responsive than certain out-of-state companies. Our reputation is built upon successful roof installations across northern NJ, from Bergen to Essex County, and from Passaic to Union County. Major manufacturers like GAF and Owens Corning have certified CRS to install their roofing products.

The CRS Difference

Unfortunately, many roofing jobs simply go to the lowest bidder. Subs may arrive from distant places, and they may lack the local knowledge or experience to perform a quality installation.

New construction roof installations are easy to take for granted until an inexperienced roofing contractor struggles to understand architectural plans, potentially leading to delays or mistakes.

At CRS, we understand architectural plans, so we price projects right, and we properly estimate the materials needed. We install new residential roofs to specifications and up to code, ensuring all the work is completed on time.

Why is CRS the Better Value?

Three of the industry’s leading manufacturers, GAF, Owens Corning and Tamko have recognized our capabilities by granting us factory certifications. Very few roofing companies attain this level of recognition in the industry. In fact, fewer than three percent of roofing contractors ever achieve GAF’s Master Elite Contractor status.

Thanks to its multiple certifications, CRS is authorized to offer the very best manufacturer warranties, a big selling point that homeowners and rental property owners value.

How CRS Can Work for You

In northern New Jersey, CRS is the roofing contractor of choice for homeowners, property managers, building managers and real estate agents. We welcome any opportunity to provide estimates for new roof construction on every kind of residential building, from primary residences to rental properties.

Let’s Talk

Residential Roofing Materials

Although asphalt shingle roofs remain the most popular of the residential options, New Jersey roofs are sometimes made of metal, cedar shakes or slate.

Asphalt Shingles

Today’s heavy-duty architectural shingles are more durable than the three-tab shingles of the past. Shingles covered with special reflective granules reduce surface temperatures, potentially cutting cooling costs. In decades past, copper, slate and metal roofs often lasted longer than their asphalt shingle counterparts. Today, the gap has closed, with manufacturers of asphalt shingles backing up their products with 50-year and even lifetime warranties.

Steel and Aluminum

Metal roofs are typically fabricated from steel or aluminum. Another option is galvalume steel which includes a hot-dipped aluminum alloy finish. Metal roofs include metal shingle and sealed seam options. This combination often blends well with contemporary architectural styles. Metal roofs typically cost 2-4 times more than asphalt shingle roofs, in part because of the technical skills and specialized equipment required during installation.

Zinc and Copper

Zinc (tin) and copper roofs are traditional options that often protect historic structures. Both metals are highly malleable, resilient and somewhat self-healing. Although they can cost 3-5 times more than shingle roofs, zinc and copper roofs can last centuries. Zinc roofing is far more well-known in Europe than in the United States. In Paris, for example, more than 80 percent of roofs are zinc.

Cedar Shakes

Cedar shake roofs are popular because of their aesthetics. In particular, split cedar shakes are highly textured and three-dimensional. Unlike most kinds of residential roofs, they also insulate and dampen sound.

Slate

Proponents of slate roofs cite their beauty and extreme longevity. Slate does not absorb water, and it is non-combustible. Negatives include the fact that slate is too heavy for some structures, and installation is tricky. Composite slate roofs may cost several times more than their asphalt shingle counterparts, and natural slate roofs can cost significantly more than that.
