Seal up your water and air leaks

If there is an opening in the structure of your home, where water might leak in or heating and air conditioning might escape, you need the most reliable company to fix it. That company is B&G Roofing.

This family business of 52 years knows exactly how to solve all kinds of household leaks, whether a tiny drip from the ceiling or some of your precious cold air escaping into the summer heat through a crevice by the window. Bob Meyers says that a building’s cornice, window and door frames often just need a bit of caulking to seal out the elements, but you’d be surprised how often your roof can be a big culprit too.

B&G has specialists in every kind of roofing and sealant materials, from rubber shingles to slate roofs. Customers are often referred to B&G by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, which means that they are true craftsmen and will handle each job expertly whether the roof can be seen from street level or not.

Additionally, B&G offers free estimates, 24-hour emergency service, and will deal with your insurance company about storm damage. B&G promises to “get the job done right the first time” — and with three generations and 52 years of experience under their belt, you can believe it!
