New Roofs

You might not give much thought to your home's roof — until a problem occurs like a leak, damaged or missing shingles or the appearance of asphalt granules in your gutter system. These are all signs that it’s time for a new roof. A severe storm that causes major damage creates a more immediate need for a roof replacement.

Roof Replacement

If you live in Wilkes-Barre / Scranton or anywhere in NEPA and Central PA and need a house roof replacement, contact the roofing professionals at Blue Square Builders right away. We'll come to your home to perform a free inspection to determine your roof's condition and assess the level of any damage. We'll then provide a roof replacement estimate so you'll know how much your upgrade will cost. Our transparent pricing eliminates concerns about hidden fees or add-on costs that are common with other roof replacement companies.

If you're building your dream home or adding on to an existing residence, we can provide an estimate for the cost of a newly installed roof. We work with the top homebuilders in the area to coordinate the roof installation process and ensure the best results for the project.

In addition to roof replacement services, Blue Square Builders can handle all yourroof repair needs and perform timely preventative maintenance to keep your roof in peak condition and extend its lifespan.

Our Services

At this time we only install asphalt shingle roofs and residential flat roofing. We focus on shingle roofs because of the many benefits they offer to homeowners, including:

When you contact us, we schedule a time for our estimator to come out and give you a free onsite estimate and consultation. Since no two roofs are alike, we personally measure each one before preparing a custom estimate. Our standard replacement estimate includes removing the roof down to the deck, replacing any rotten roof decking if needed at an additional cost, installing underlayment and shingles. We also replace all chimney step flashing and counter flashing on (Brick Chimneys Only), pipe boot flashings, and box vents. If your home has ridge vent we replace it; if not we can install it and refer a contractor to install your soffit vents if needed. We also generally replace skylights – see the "Skylight Installation" section for additional details.

Once you make your decision to hire us and sign our proposal or notify us by email, we provide our "roofing information" sheet to help you prepare for the roofing process, and we'll give you a approximate timeframe for scheduling. Then you will select a shingle color and style. We encourage you to visit addresses of roofs we’ve completed to see what the color actually looks like, plus we can provide samples as well. After shingle selection, we schedule the job for a mutually agreeable timeframe. If you have a specific date request, we make every effort to meet that date, weather permitting.

Once the work has been completed, we perform a final inspection before receiving your payment. Part of our service is meticulous ground clean-up – we understand the value of your property and therefore strive to leave your yard as we found it.

Three Common Indicators of a Worn Out Roof

  1. Shingle condition: Missing, Curling, Blistering, or Cracked Shingles – On a new roof, asphalt based shingles have a granular covering to protect the tar surface and give the shingle its attractive appearance. And there is a tar seal at the edge of the shingles that prevents wind from lifting them up and blowing them off. Over time, the granular surface of the asphalt shingle loosens and wears off, and the tar strip starts to lose its seal. If you see an excessive amount of granules iold-roof-framen your gutters, or you start to lose shingles during storms, check your shingles to see if you notice any cracking, curling, or blistering. An excessive amount of any of these conditions may mean your roof cannot be repaired and therefore needs to be replaced.
  2. Flashing and Caulking Damage – Most flashing products are made of aluminum, copper or galvanized. Caulking is installed around the edge of the flashing to seal the flashing to the brick or siding. Most flashing problems are repairable by either re-caulking or replacing the flashing. But again, if the shingles around the flashing are too old and brittle for a repair, it is time for a new roof.
  3. Roof Buckling or Warped Appearance – Rotten Roof Decking – About 50% of all asphalt shingle roofs that we replace each year have some sort of rotting or water damaged wood underneath the surface. This is often because leaks are not repaired while they are minor. A small leak can cause a great amount of slow damage over time, and is often not noticed until damage is seen inside the home. By that time the roof deck may be rotten and give a warped or buckled appearance, and one or more sections may need to be replaced. Excessive areas of rotten wood could mean a new roof is needed.
