Fine Workmanship

Silver Roofing takes a different approach. We give you honest advice even if it means no work or less work for us. We speak factually about your issue after carefully listening to your situation. No spin, no salesmanship, and no bloated promises. We provide clear estimates in plain English along with photos and captions. We give you the same thing we value in our vendors: a respectful, intelligent exchange about your needs.

We are proud to be among the most respected and knowledgeable specialty roofing companies in the Lower Hudson Valley. Silver Roofing focuses on presenting our customers with plain spoken, good advice. When appropriate, we create specific roofing and waterproofing proposals to address their needs, choosing an industry-accepted scope of work and delivering a high quality installation that holds long term value. Our crews are safe, polite, and hard working.

We realize at the start that you need solutions from a trusted source. As your home is one of your largest investments, selecting a capable firm to protect that investment is a crucial decision. Our president, Lou Silver, has 41 years of roofing experience in the Northeast, having installed thousands of premium asphalt, slate, aluminum, copper, and cedar roofs. From assisting a local historical society to restore a century-old train station in Piermont or a museum homestead to reroofing condominium complexes, Silver Roofing's broad experience, extensive knowledge of materials, attention to details, and our commitment to craftsmanship have provided property owners with outstanding roofing that will stand the test of time and the elements.

We are fully insured and are a licensed home improvement contractor in Rockland (License # H-8879-B6) and Westchester (License # WC-29606-H17) Counties, NY and in the State of New Jersey (License # 13VH04864800).

Piermont Train Station Roof

We installed a standing seam metal roof at the Piermont Train Station. The Piermont Historical Society received the Rockland County Historic Preservation Merit Award in 2007 for the restoration of the Station.

Slate and Copper Roofs

This historical restoration of a slate roof in Tenafly, NJ replicated the rosette design, the copper bullnose hips and flashings, the copper snow guard pattern, and the ridge cresting.

Tile Roofs

This concrete tile project is one of many tile jobs completed in NY, NJ, and CT. Other tile installations include Classic Spanish Clay S-tile, Pan and Cover Spanish Clay Tile, French Tile and others.

Asphalt Shingle Roof

We installed this asphalt shingle roof in Grandview, NY with copper Yankee gutters and leaders. This understated, elegant home is one of the many we have completed in the river towns adjacent to the Hudson from Garrison to Riverdale.
