I have worked with Buckley Roofing for many years, and they are highly professional. They have a vast amount of experience and industry knowledge knowing all the roof systems well. They communicate well upfront about when they can get to your project and how long the project will take. I’ve had nothing but positive experiences with them. At the end of the project, they went over any maintenance items with the owner which was helpful for us and the owner. I will continue calling them and highly recommend them.
No stressing about any problems with your roof!
A manufacturer warranty covers many problems that could arise, but it does not cover all problems associated with keeping your investment in proper shape. Some warranties (when roof meets certain requirements from manufacturer) can cover accidental punctures caused by others such as building and rooftop equipment maintenance, higher wind speeds and even hail.
A properly maintained roof can last past its initial warranty period. Maintenance of roofs can help you get a better sense of the roof’s true life and can better help budget for a replacement. Building owners that want the most from their roof investment recognize that regular commercial roof maintenance is not an option.
Buckley’s service and maintenance program allows customers to watch and track the progress of their roof as it ages. With detailed pictures and reports on past leaks and maintenance they can truly understand how their investment is working. Top roofing manufacturers highly advise an inspection every six months.

Working with Mechanical and HVAC Contractors
Our team works with mechanical contractors when they are replacing rooftop units. Typically, there is roofing scope of work included in a rooftop unit replacement. Buckley Roofing addresses the roofing system around the unit.
Rooftop units typically sit on metal frameworks called curbs. HVAC contractors usually assemble and install these and rely on commercial roofers to flash and waterproof the curb where it meets the roof. Once installed, these curbs need continual attention to make certain the flashing, adhesives and waterproofing continue to prevent water from getting up inside the curb and down into the roof.
Buckley Roofing knows how to work around HVAC units and maintain the flashing that prevents water infiltration. Our technicians work closely with the HVAC technicians on the ballast, adhesives, rubber membranes or other roof protections. Our crew will be on site when new A/C units are being installed. Buckley Roofing helps the HVAC contractor preserve the integrity of the existing roof, assist with compensating for slope to level the new curb, and properly flash and seal the newly installed curb. Any new A/C unit literally creates a hole in your roof, and where you have a hole, you have a potential leak.
