Installing three tab (20 year) and laminate (thirty year / architectural) shingles encompasses the nucleus of our business. Asphalt shingles comprise the greater majority of roofing materials in Texas. We begin the installation with new felt, new metal in the valleys and if requested, new attic venting with each new roof. We use high quality asphalt shingles from GAF (www.gaf.com), Tamko (www.tamko.com) and additional manufacturers.
We like to employ new lead jacks and we hand nail all of the shingles on your roof. We put new metal flashing on any chimneys, skylights and walls.
We prefer to use Storm Guard around all skylights, chimneys and in any high risk places to diminish the likelihood of leaking water.
All exposed nails are smeared with a specific brand of roofing caulk manufactured to last many years.
All pipes are painted to complement the roof shingles and prevent rusting.
An improved type of shingles has been developed since 2000. They use recent technologies to help shingles accept being battered by hail without causing considerable shingle loss. The insurance industry met these new shingles by offering property owners a generous yearly discount on their homeowner’s insurance premiums in the 28% to 32% range. The price of these shingles has remained comparatively flat for several years and now the payback interval for an investment in these kinds of shingles is as low as two yrs.
These shingles ought to be thought of as an investment if you expect to stay in your home for any length of time.
As an added element of the installation of a new roof, we appraise your currentattic circulation. In the state of Texas, we have incredibly hot summer months. It is important to allow the heated air to leave the attic. When the heated air is cut off, it produces premature deterioration of your roof shingles in addition to your AC unit(s). As a result, you pay larger electric bills and in the long run you need to replace your roof and AC earlier than necessary. Locked in moisture could also increase the possibility of mold . There are two components of attic air circulation. Intake, which is generally soffit and gable vents. Exhaust, which is generally wind turbines, ridge vent and power vents. The goal is for the attic intake to be at least twice the size of the attic outlet.
We’ve had customers that have had animals setting up home in their chimneys, everything from squirrels and birds to raccoons. Many customers have water dripping down their chimneys. This water could get stuck in the bricks. When the weather freezes, this is the ingredients for the destruction of your chimney that could produce thousands of dollars in damages. We will install specially made chimney caps that keep water and critters from penetrating the chimney. Chimney caps also lessen the likelihood of bigger ashes destroying your roof when you build a fire. Chimney caps look great and last a really long time too.
Skylights could be damaged by many things such as hail, fallen tree limbs, wind driven debris, the sun and age. We measure your skylight, determine the type and talk about your choices. Once you make a decision, the newskylight domes are made and installed. Contemporary skylights are much better insulated than their previous versions, which will save you money on your cooling and heating costs.
