Why Choosing the Right Contractor Matters

Who’s On Your Roof?

Ever heard the saying, “If you think hiring a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an amateur”? When it comes to your roof, this couldn’t be more true. Your roof is the shield protecting your entire home from the elements. One mistake during a repair or replacement can lead to a cascade of problems, from leaks and water damage to structural issues and even safety hazards.

That’s where the question arises: Who’s On Your Roof?

At Marcor Construction, this isn’t just a catchy tagline – it’s our commitment to homeowner education and safety. We see far too many roofing projects fail because homeowners were lured in by the promise of a quick fix or a “discount” price. Unfortunately, these shortcuts often lead to bigger problems down the road, costing you more time, money, and stress in the long run.

So, why shouldn’t you take a chance on your roof?

Here are some key reasons to choose a reputable, experienced contractor like Marcor Construction:

  • Expertise: Roofing is a skilled trade. Skilled roofers understand the nuances of different materials, installation techniques, and local building codes. They can identify potential problems before they escalate and ensure your roof is built to last.
  • Licensing and Insurance: Beware of unlicensed or under-insured contractors. In the event of an accident or faulty installation, you could be left holding the bag for repairs and injuries. Marcor Construction is fully licensed and insured, offering peace of mind throughout the project.
  • Quality Materials: Not all roofing materials are created equal. A reputable contractor will use high-quality materials that are designed to withstand the elements in your specific climate. This translates to a longer lifespan for your roof and fewer repairs in the future.
  • Safety First: Roofing is inherently dangerous. Marcor Construction prioritizes safety by employing a fully trained and equipped crew, adhering to all safety protocols.

Choosing the right contractor doesn’t have to be a gamble.

By educating yourself and partnering with a company like Marcor Construction, you can ensure your roof is in the hands of qualified professionals. We’ll work with you to understand your needs, provide a transparent and fair quote, and get the job done right – the first time.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be diving deeper into specific topics related to roof maintenance, repairs, and replacements. Stay tuned to learn more about how to protect your home – and your wallet – with the right roofing solutions.

Remember, when it comes to your roof, don’t settle for less.

Choose Marcor Construction – the trusted name for quality, safety, and peace of mind.

Beyond the Iron Triangle: Building a Roof That Lasts

Have you ever heard of the “iron triangle” of service? It says you can only have two out of three things: good, fast, and cheap. This blog post throws a wrench in that outdated notion, especially when it comes to something as crucial as your roof.

Why “Good” Isn’t Negotiable

At Marcor Construction, we believe “good” shouldn’t even be a question. A quality roof protects your most valuable asset – your home. Sacrificing quality for speed or a lower price tag can lead to disaster down the line. Think about it this way: a poorly constructed roof will likely leak, require repairs sooner rather than later, and could even compromise the structural integrity of your house. In the long run, “cheap” becomes extremely expensive.

The Myth of “Good and Cheap”

The iron triangle suggests slowing down the work can magically make it cheaper. This isn’t true. Sure, you might spread the cost out over more time, but the work itself will still require the same level of expertise and materials.

The DIY Trap

Some homeowners attempt the “good and cheap” route by tackling roof repairs themselves. This can be a costly mistake. Without the proper training and experience, it’s easy to miss crucial details or simply not create a structurally sound roof. When you realize the DIY approach wasn’t worth it, you’ll end up paying a professional to fix the mess, negating any initial savings.

Timely Quality: The Marcor Difference

While speed alone shouldn’t be the top priority, our roofing experts at Marcor Construction understand the importance of completing the job in a reasonable timeframe. A roof that takes too long to complete can leave your home vulnerable to the elements.

Our Commitment: Good, Fast (when possible), and Transparent

We strive to deliver exceptional service (“good”) efficiently (“fast” when project timelines allow). We achieve this through:

  • Experienced and properly insured roofing professionals: Our team has the expertise to tackle any roofing project with precision and speed.
  • High-quality materials: We use only the best materials to ensure your roof lasts decades.
  • Clear communication: We keep you informed throughout the process, so you always know what to expect.

Don’t settle for the iron triangle’s false choices. Marcor Construction offers a better solution: a quality roof built efficiently and at a fair price. Let us help you safeguard your home with a roof you can trust.

What is Winter Damage?

Summer has come and gone, the holidays have passed, and now we must brace ourselves for what winter might have in store for us this year.  The last few winters have hit Long Island stronger than ever and many property owners were not entirely prepared.  Shovels and Snowblowers were flying off the shelves at the stores; you couldn’t find ice melt almost anywhere!
Society today has become very “reactive” rather than remaining proactive when it comes to taking preventative measures to protect their homes.  Here are a few helpful ways to be proactive and avoid the risk of what a cold and snowy winter may bring to Long Island.
Ice Damming: Ice dam has become a recognized term over these last few years to Long Island homeowners, damaging homes both inside and outside.  Ice Damming is a common winter roofing problem caused by poor roof ventilation and warm attic space. Left untreated, ice dams can cause serious damage to your roof, gutters, paint, insulation, drywall, structure and even contribute to mold. 
Ice dams form when melting snow on a roof runs off and refreezes at the edge of a roof. This condition occurs when the snow is melted by a warm roof, creating water running between the snow and the warm roof surface, then freezing and turning to ice when it gets past the exterior wall and hits a cold unheated roof edge or gutter.
Ice damming can be avoided or prevented by increasing the amount of insulation you have in your attic so that the heat you are using to heat your home does not escape through inadequate insulation.  A combination of ice and water shield and drip edge, in conjunction with a proper roof installation, will aid in the prevention of ice dams as well.
Pipe Breaks: Pipe breaks are another common occurrence when temperatures plummet.  The water freezes in the pipe, commonly on an outside wall, and when it freezes, expands and eventually breaks the pipe.  This can potentially cause a massive amount of water damage in many cases. Although this is typically a covered loss through your homeowner’s insurance, it is a headache to deal with and can cause a lot of damage to your property and belongings.  Pipe breaks can be avoided by maintaining the heat in your dwelling, usually around 68 degrees, especially when you are going out of town.  Always make sure you have enough oil to heat your home.  Insulate outside walls, keep windows closed on the outside walls of your home, and be sure to disconnect gardening hoses and flush out your sprinklers if necessary.
Many of the headaches we face as homeowners can be avoided with proper prevention strategies and planning ahead.  On Long Island, we are going to always face drastic weather changes; therefore taking some of these ideas into consideration could carry you a long way.  If you take preventative measures, when the next snowstorm finds its way into your neighborhood, you could kick your feet up by the fireplace with some hot cocoa rather than worrying about keeping the storm out of your house!
