A modernized type of shingles has been designed since the year 2000. They use recent technologies to help shingles deal with being battered by hail without causing considerable shingle loss. The insurance industry met these high-tech shingles by providing property owners a substantial annual reduction on their home owner insurance premiums in the 28% to 32% range. The price of these shingles has remained relatively flat over the years and now the recoup period for an investment in these types of shingles is as little as 2 years.

As an added feature of the installation of a new roof, we assess your attic ventilation. In Texas, we have extremely hot summer months. It is crucial to allow the heated air to leave the attic. When the heated air gets locked in, it causes early deterioration of your roof shingles in addition to your air conditioning unit(s). Consequently, you pay larger electric bills and in the long run you have to replace your roof and air conditioner unit(s) sooner than necessary. Cut off moisture could also increase the likelihood of mold . There are 2 components of attic ventilation. Intake, which normally comes from soffit and gable openings. Exhaust, which normally comes from ridge vents, power vents and wind turbines. The target is for the attic intake to be at least double the size of the attic exhaust.

We will mount custom chimney caps that prevent water and animals from entering the chimney. Custom chimney caps also decrease the chances of bigger ashes destroying your roof when you build a fire. Chimney caps look awesome and last a really long time as well.
