Types of Roofs We Replace

No matter what type of roof you have on your home our local roofers in New Jersey can help repair or replace it. We specialize in installing and repairing various roofing materials that are common throughout the area. Reach out now to request an estimate!

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt is among the most common materials used for modern roofing and is available in both traditional and architectural shingles. This material is affordable and easy to install. It fits practically any house style and can last 20 years or more.

Slate Roofing

Slate roofing is popular for the aesthetics but also because it is durable, requires little maintenance and lasts at least 40 years. Some slate roofs can last for more than a century, and practically any slate roof will increase home value.

Cedar Shingles

Cedar shingles are beautiful and provide a natural wood aesthetic that is quite distinct. They offer excellent thermal insulation, are storm and weather resistant and last upward of 30 years. Unfortunately, they do require regular maintenance to achieve that lifespan.

Flat Roofing

Flat roofs have a slight slope to allow for water to be carried to your gutters. This type of roof is versatile and energy efficient. The installation, maintenance, and repair costs are lower, but it does have some drawbacks in colder climates and may need to be replaced more often.

Tile Roofing Shingles

Tile roofing is made of either clay or concrete. It is weather resistant, reduces energy costs, requires minimal maintenance, and lasts upward of 50 years. Not all homes can support a tile roof, however, and materials and labor can be more expensive than the alternatives.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs are once again gaining popularity, and while they are more expensive than the typical asphalt shingle roof, that is offset by a number of benefits. They are environmentally friendly, extremely energy efficient, and durable, and they last between 40 and 70 years.

Our Roof Replacement Process

Through more than four decades of experience, PJ Fitzpatrick has perfected our roof replacement process. We will help you choose the ideal roof for your home from both a functional and aesthetic perspective. Our home improvement team will then carry out the tear-off and reroofing with precision. We will never accept anything less than your complete satisfaction with the work performed.

Prep & Removal

We’re not going to lie, the roof replacement process can be messy as the old roof is torn off. However, protecting your property is important to us. Before we begin removing anything, we set up a protective barrier so that materials do not hit your home during the removal process. There will also be a dumpster onsite so that we can quickly contain the debris.

Roof Installation

Once the new roof is ready to be installed, our team of experienced local roofers will replace the plywood sheathing (if needed) and then install the proper underlayments and flashings before installing new shingles. With every residential roof replacement, we install extra water and ice membrane as additional protection for the long-term life, durability and beauty of our work and your home, as well as a range of roof ventilation systems and the best in roofing shingles.


We vow to never use cheaper materials, hurry through an installation, or overlook local code restrictions.

When it comes to home improvement, we know that many of our services are not just minor changes to your home, but rather a large investment.
