Installing 3 tab (20 year) and laminate (30 year / architectural) shingles comprises the bulk of our sales. Shingles represent the vast majority of roofing materials in Texas. We compliment the installation with new felt, new metal in the valleys and if requested, new attic venting with each new roof. We use the highest quality shingles from GAF (www.gaf.com), Tamko (www.tamko.com) and other manufacturers.
We prefer to use new lead jacks and we attach all of the shingles on your roof, by hand. We install new flashing on all chimneys, skylights and walls.
We prefer to use Storm Guard around all skylights, chimneys and in any high risk places to decrease the probability of leaks.
All exposed nails are smeared with a particular brand of roofing caulk made to last many years.
All pipes are painted to complement the color of roof shingles and reduce rusting.
A new breed of shingles has been developed since the year 2000. They utilize modern technologies to help shingles accept being hit by hail without creating extensive shingle loss. The insurance industry applauded these state of the art shingles by providing homeowners a generous yearly rebate on their homeowner’s insurance premiums in the 28-32 percent range. The cost of these shingles has continued to stay relatively flat over the years and now the recoup time for an investment in these types of shingles is as little as two yrs.
These shingles would be weighed as an investment if you plan to remain in your residence for several years.
As part of the installation of a new roof, we appraise your currentattic circulation. In Texas, we have extremely hot summer months. It is critical to permit the hot air to escape from the attic. When the hot air gets locked in, it produces untimely deterioration of your roof shingles as well as your air conditioning unit(s). As a result, you pay larger electric bills and in the long run you have to replace your air conditioner and roof sooner than necessary. Cut off moisture can also increase the possibility of mold problems. There are two parts to of attic ventilation. Intake, which usually consist of gable and soffit vents. Exhaust, which usually consist of ridge vents, power vents and wind turbines. The idea is for the attic intake to be at least double the size of the attic exhaust.
We have customers that have had wildlife setting up home in their chimneys, everything from squirrels and birds to raccoons. Many customers have water dripping down their chimneys. This water can get stuck inside the bricks. When the weather freezes, this is a recipe for the destruction of your chimney that can cause thousands of dollars in damage. We will mount custom chimney caps that keep critters and rainwater from entering the chimney. Chimney caps also lessen the possibility of larger ashes damaging your roof when you build a fire. Chimney caps look great and last a really long time too.
Skylights can be destroyed by many different things such as the sun, hail, age, fallen tree branches and wind driven debris. We measure your skylight, determine the style and educate you on your alternatives. Once you decide, the newskylight domes are made and installed. Modern skylights are much better insulated than their older versions, which will save you real dollars on your cooling and heating bills.
