 New York City Flat Roofs

Flat roofs were introduced in New York City during the 1920’s with the “International Style” of architecture. The movement’s love for modern cubism favored the calming horizontal lines of a flat roof over the austere vertical lines of classic pitch roofs.

With scant rain in New York City, flat roofs worked well. However, homeowners in the New York City Bay Area soon discovered that unless installed with precision, these flat roofs were prone to leaking.

In the 1997, Native Contracting Inc. began working on Bronx roofs in New York City. Our roof experts devised a technique to improve the watertight performance of these beloved homes. After years of frustration with their leaky roofs, our clients were thrilled to discover that an Eichler flat roof installed by Native Contracting does not leak. We received the same praise from our New York City Bay Area commercial and industrial flat roofing clients. The Native team are experts in the proper design and installation of flat roofs.   

Flat Roof Repairs, Replacement or Re-roofing?

Whenever possible, our flat roof repair specialists will extend the life of your roof with flat roof repair or flat roof restoration. If a new roof is necessary, the option for roof replacement or re-roofing is dependent upon the condition of the existing flat roof and local building codes. 

  • If re-roofing is an option, we will install the new flat roof directly over the existing roof.
  • If roof replacement is required, we will tear-off the existing roof to the sheathing boards and then install the new flat roof.
  • Typically, Spray Foam System do not require removal of the existing roof.
  • If the existing roof needs to be removed, Wedge Roofing has the resources to quickly and safely complete the tear-off while protecting your property.
