Our dedicated service division is available for dispatch 24/7. Regardless of the time of day, our repair team can immediately respond to any emergency —from a small leak to major damage from a storm.

Backed by more than a century of experience, we have the expertise needed to fabricate, install, repair, replace, and maintain roofs less than 12 degrees in pitch in industrial, commercial, institutional, and architectural settings. Our low-slope roofs are also compatible with a variety of coatings to ensure that they can resist corrosion for years to come.

Knickerbocker offers a full range of steep-slope solutions, including roof repair, replacement, and maintenance, for an array of roofing materials, including slate, tile, wood shakes, and shingles. We work closely with every client to meet their exact specifications and provide a solution that aligns with their timelines.

From gutters to ornamental design, Knickerbocker can rely on advanced automated metal fabrication equipment to create any specialty item with extreme detail and precision. We work with a number of metals and finishes to produce spires, colonnades, and other specialty items that add the perfect touch to your building.

We’re honored to be recognized leaders in the construction of watertight green roof systems. With the ability to install green roofs ranging in area from 1,000 ft2 to 1,000,000 ft2, we’re able to work with nearly any industrial, commercial, and institutional setting. Our green roofing services include a variety of specialty features to ensure that your green roof is as beautiful as it is functional, including sprinkler systems, membranes, root barriers, insulation, and filter fabric.

In addition to installation, Knickerbocker offers comprehensive maintenance services for all industrial and commercial roofs. After a close inspection of your roof, we develop a customized annual or semi-annual maintenance plan that’s tailored to your needs. Our plans include key roof maintenance procedures such as drain cleaning, debris removal, mechanical equipment inspections, resealing, and repairs to flashings and the membrane.
