Very pleasant experience right from the initial meeting with the salesman, Jacob to the completion of the job. Great job removing existing roof shingles, all the plywood & existing spray foam insulation. Installed new insulation, all new plywood and roof shingles. Next day they installed all new gutters. Owner Mike was on the roof with his workers, supervising and working right along side them. Great work and clean up was excellent. Highly recommend!

I would recommend Rapid Restore Roofing after the amazing installation that I received. They are a professional company that communicate well with customers. Throughout my roofing project the team communicated from start to finish and provided photo timelines. To see our roof being installed in real time was amazing. Professional, quality and affordable.

Rapid Restore Roofing and Restoration is an industry stand out – a Class Company – Professional, Knowledgeable, Courteous and Timely. I had a complex unsourced roof leak. A neighbor referred me to Mike Meinardus who instantly outshined the ten companies I had interviewed prior. Our conversations were informative, sincere, and stress-free from job evaluation, contract execution and work performed. Thankyou Mike for a job well done!

I contacted several roofing contractors to repair roof rot from an improperly sealed floating deck. I was contacted the same day by a rep who scheduled an appointment immediately. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and through in his inspection and explanation of the repair needed. I chose them over other estimates I received. The work was completed promptly and professionally. The roof looks great! I highly recommend them to anyone needing roof work!!!

CEDAR SHAKE BASICS

Learn the basics of cedar/wood shake roofing by clicking on the tabs. We’ll take you through the different parts of the roofing system and why they are important.

Click on the tabs to read more about our process.

Spaced sheathing or furring strip refers to the substrate in which the cedar shake roofing gets nailed too. Typical roofs on Long Island do not require spaced sheathing. For cedar roofs however, spaced sheathing needs to be installed in accordance with the size of the shake shingles so they are nailed in the correct location. Because of this, their is room for airflow. This airflow will allow the underside of the shingles to dry out quickly and evenly. A proper ventilation plan can add DECADES to the longevity of your roof. Call the professionals at Rapid Restore today.

A handmade flashing used on all eave and rake edges to direct water and moisture away from important areas. This protects your fascia and roof edges from nasty rain and wind. Our drip edge is hand made on-site and uses a deeper flange than usual. This provides superior protection from the harsh long island weather conditions. Rapid Restore is Suffolk County and Nassau County’s leading cedar shake roof installation company. Call us today.

Flashing is a super functional item to assist in waterproofing your home. This keeps water out of seams and important penetrations such as chimneys, valleys, roof to wall connections and more. A lot of people overlook to opportunity to turn flashing parts into elegant accents. Rapid Restore is in tune with designer accents and makes sure your roof not only performs great but looks great as well. Call the Suffolk County Cedar Roofing Professionals today!

This part of your cedar roof system is actually the most important believe it or not. Stainless steel nails are the only way to guarantee the long lasting finish your home deserves. These nails offer the highest degree of corrosion resistance. Due to the amount of water cedar roofing shingles soak up, the nails usually see more moisture than usual. Galvanized nails are NOT the best choice due to the chemical reaction zinc has with cedar and redwood. Pressure treated shake shingles have preservatives in them which contain salt, therefore corrosion is a bigger concern here. Either way, Rapid Restore of Long Island has the knowledge and experience to tackle your cedar roofing project successfully.

Cedar roofing tiles are thin, tapered pieces of cedarwood used in a staggered fashion to cover roofs and walls of buildings and homes to protect them from the harsh Long Island weather. Cedar roofing shingles add a special character to homes and buildings. Cedar wood roofing shingles can also be shaped by steam bending to adhere to unique curved designs and more. The aesthetic possibilities are endless. Throw in some unique details and copper trimmings for an extra effect! We are happy to help you design your next cedar roofing system.

Every roof peaks at some point! To guarantee a weather tight seal, cedar roofs require a skillfully constructed cap. Basically a “cap” is two shake shingles with beveled ends, butted together and joined with stainless steel nails in a V-Shaped fashion. We call this “capping the ridge”. Sometimes a ridge ventilation system can be installed in cases where more ventilation is needed. Rapid Restore is a professional cedar shake contractor in Suffolk County Long Island and has the skills and experience you need to complete your complex roofing project. Call us today.
