Long Island’s weather can be tough on asphalt shingle roofs. Summertime sun can make shingles brittle. Storms and nor’easters can lift roof shingles and even tear them away.

You may want to delay calling a professional because of roof repair costs. But left untreated, little roof leaks can become major problems. Leaks can saturate your roof deck, causing the wood beneath to rot. Your minor leak can become a major roofing project that requires roof replacement or even reframing.

We’ve been a Long Island roofing contractor for over 30 years. We can do anything from a minor shingle repair job to replacing your roof. Give us a call now and let our roof leak repair specialists take care of your roof issues.

County Roofing Systems offers roof repair services including:

Clogged Gutter


Clogged gutters are one of the major causes of roof damage. Gutters are an important part of your roof system. Water runs down your roof into the gutter, where it flows to the drain spout and into the ground.

If your gutters are clogged, water cannot flow freely off your roof. In colder seasons, this can lead to destructive ice dams. It can also lead to exterior and interior water damage. The blocked water pours into the space between your home and the outside wall.

County Roofing Systems can see that your gutters are kept free of leaves, debris, and other clogs. This helps protect your roof and your home. We service gutters throughout the Long Island area and will be happy to take care of yours.

counter flashing on chimney


When roofers install a roof, they use flashing — thin strips of aluminum or copper — to seal off the spaces around your chimney and dormers. Flashing seals off any gaps that would allow water to seep in down your chimney or around your windows.

Flashing can be tedious and finicky, so many roofing companies do a sloppy job. But even a tiny breach in the flashing can have huge consequences. We repair a lot of bad flashing jobs, and we’ve seen flashing errors lead to serious and expensive damage.

If you’re seeing leaks around your dormers or fireplace, call us immediately. Flashing repairs are a quick and relatively inexpensive project. Full scale chimney or window restorations will be a lot more involved and costly.

Financing your residential roof repair

Financing a roof project can be easier than you think. County Roofing has been doing roof repairs in New York and Long Island for over three decades. We’ve worked with many local lenders on residential financing. We can introduce you to regional lenders who are happy to work with you.

If you’ve been putting off roof repairs because of the expense, you may be setting yourself up for bigger troubles in the long term. An unpatched leaky roof can lead to water stains and damaged roof decks. Roof replacement costs will be much higher than leak repairs.

We’ve been doing this for a long time, and we have it down to a science. Drop us a line. One of our team members will be happy to explain how we can repair your roof for less than you might expect. We get the job done right the first time and we use premium materials to make sure you can enjoy or work for many years to come.

You’ll find online instructions on how to “repair” damaged shingles with caulk or roof cement. But damaged shingles are often signs of bigger underlying problems. The damage may have torn the membrane. If a falling branch damaged your shingles, it may also have damaged the roof deck or even the trusses.

If you have a damaged asphalt roof, you need to remove and replace the old shingles. But before your contractor installs the new shingles, they must repair any other issues.

Torn membranes must be patched to prevent water from seeping into your home. Waterlogged roof deck boards must be replaced. You should only replace old shingles after making sure all other problems have been covered.

If you’re having problems with roof leaks, we can trace them back to their source and plug them up for good. We examine your walls for signs of dampness, then examine the attic with a flashlight for mold growth or dampness.

Once we determine where the leaks are located, we go straight for the source. We check the problem area to determine the extent of the damage, then perform the necessary work. If we’ve caught the issue early enough, we may be able to solve the issue with minor repairs. Otherwise, we can discuss the costs of a full roof restoration.

Give us a call today and let us take care of your roof leaks once and for all.

Frequently Asked Questions About Roof Repairs

Can shingles be repaired?

You fix shingles by removing them and replacing them with new ones. Some contractors will “repair” curled or cracked shingles with roof cement or sealant. This is a temporary fix that will only lead to trouble down the road.

Can you repair just part of a roof

We can perform a partial roof replacement if the damage is confined to a specific area. If a few shingles are missing, we can replace them. If one section of the roof deck is rotted, we can take those boards out.

Can roof repairs be tax deductible?

Roof repairs are generally not tax deductible. But a full roof replacement can reduce the capital gains tax you pay when you sell your home. A roof replacement is a capital improvement, and you can subtract the price of capital improvements from gains on the sale.

Why does my roof leak after heavy rain?

When you’re seeing water stains and roof leaks after heavy rain storms, it’s a sign you may need a roof replacement. Shingles dry and grow brittle in the Long Island sun. In time, numerous tiny cracks let water seep through every time there’s a rainstorm.

Are lifted shingles bad?

Lifted shingles are a serious roof issue that requires immediate attention. A lifted shingle allows water to seep in beneath the other shingles. This can cause extensive damage to your shingles and ultimately your roof deck.
