7 Tips for Selecting a Trustworthy Roof Repair Company

How to Select a Trustworthy Roof Repair Company
21
Mar
2018

As a homeowner, when it comes to repairing roof damage, your first priority is to select the right roofing company.

Quick tip – be discerning and selective about the contractors you allow on your roof.  Sadly, there are plenty of unscrupulous roofers in our industry.

Here is exactly what to look for when considering a roof contractor.

1. Check the Qualifications

The roof repair company should have the proper qualifications including certification, licensing and insurance. If the roofer lacks any such qualifications, think twice before letting them work on your roof. The roofer should provide proof of insurance for liability as well as workers’ compensation. This way, if something goes wrong or if a worker is injured on your property, you will not be liable for the damages. Furthermore, you should request to see a copy of the contractor’s license.

2. Find out What Current and Former Clients Have to Say

Above all, client feedback matters the most. Obtain several referrals from current and former clients to gauge their merit. Take a look on the web for reviews. Ask the roofer for the contact information of references. Reach out to these clients and ask them about the roofer. Weigh all of the positives and negatives from this feedback before making a decision.

3. Local Roof Repair Companies are Ideal

It is best to hire a roof repair company located in the area. A local company is less inclined to run a scam or create other unnecessary complications and drama. Furthermore, local roofers know the ins and outs of local rules, code regulations and so on. Add in the fact that nearby roofers tend to have good relationships with local suppliers and crews and it is easy to see why most homeowners prefer to give local roofers their business.

4. Trustworthy Roofers Will Not Rush You Into Signing a Contract

Review every last word of the contract before signing. The contract should include a written estimate that details any oral promises previously made by the contractor. You deserve an explanation of every portion of the contract, especially if it has vague language. So don’t assume the roofing contractor in question will automatically compose a fair contract. In fact, some roofer will craft a contract that clearly benefits them, roll out a low bid and win clients who are looking to save money.

Elevated Roofing Uses Top-of-the-Line Equipment and Matierals5. The Best Equipment and Materials

Our roof repair company uses only the best equipment and materials for roofs. We refuse to use low-quality materials as we genuinely care about our customers. Our crew makes use of top-of-the-line products for every project. Our commitment to using the best materials means we stand behind our work.

6. Experience

Consider the roofer’s number of years in business. If the roofer has been serving local property owners for years and the reviews are positive, there is a good chance the contractor is trustworthy. Elevated Roofing fits this description perfectly.  We have been in business for more than two decades for good reason. Our customers are more than satisfied with the quality of our work.

7. Open Lines of Communication

You should be able to pick up the phone and contact your roofer right away. Communication is essential to ensuring your roof repair project is done exactly as you like in a reasonable amount of time. You will undoubtedly have some questions and concerns during this process. If you can’t reach the roofer or receive a response in a reasonable timeframe, the roof repair company is not worth your business.

Elevated Roofing is the Trustworthy Roof Repair Company You are Looking For

If you suspect your roof needs repair or replacement, we can help. Our team does everything from roof inspections to repairs and replacements.  Every roof should be inspected at least once per year, regardless of whether it is on a home or a commercial property.

How to Get Free Roof Inspection Services

Posted by: Elevated Roofing   /   Tags: ,   /   Comments Off on How to Get Free Roof Inspection Services

Mar
2018

There are many reasons to get a yearly roof inspection. This is an important review of your roof’s integrity that has the potential to save you thousands of dollars. In fact, many roof inspection services are free. Our roofing contractors are proud to perform such no-cost inspections.

This inspection should be performed either right before or after storm season, and prior to any repairs. Every roof should be inspected least one time each year. After all, some roofing repairs have the potential to take a while to complete. It is best to have all the details provided at the outset of the project, and before potential problem areas get worse.

Why You Should Never pay for Roof Inspection Services

Too many homeowners have fallen into the trap of paying a roofing expert to tell them the roof repair job is not feasible. This is the worst possible outcome. The bottom line is your roofing contractor should be willing to perform the inspection for free in order to earn your business.

Opt for a free roof inspection and you will have absolutely nothing to lose. This roof inspection will provide valuable information about your roof and possible repairs needed. Furthermore, the inspection will give the contractor the chance to get a sense of the type of project in question and begin to develop the best possible approach. This is just as much an opportunity for you to learn about your roof as it is for the roofer to get a sense of the looming repair and prove his or her worth.

Have a Roof Inspection Performed Before the Storms Arrive

Storm season will be here before you know it. There is no better time to have a free roof inspection performed. If you wait too long, there is the potential the roofing contractor will be too busy with other projects to analyze your roof.

Keep in mind roof repairs and roof replacements take some time. If the roofer is overloaded with work due to a string of storms or a particularly strong storm, it will take some time to tend to all requests for inspections. It is better to stay one step ahead and have this important part of your home assessed right away.

Its Easy to Schedule A Free Roof Inspection with Elevated RoofingScheduling Free Roof Inspection Services Should Be Easy

If you are hesitant to have your roof inspected because you are worried about the process, do not fret! It is extremely easy to coordinate a roof inspection. Our roof inspection services team makes this process quite convenient.

Once we have this information, the inspection and possible repair process will go that much smoother. Be specific about your concerns and the roof inspection will prove quick, easy and informative.

What the Free Roof Inspection Entails

Lean on our roofing experts to analyze your roof and we will study it in-depth for problem signs that indicate a repair or replacement is necessary. The roofer will look for missing, curling or blistering shingles, missing or cracked caulk by the flashing, rust spots along the flashing, worn or cracked boots by vent pipes, moss and beyond.

Dallas Roofing: Common Types of Roof Infestations & How to Prevent Them

Common Types of Roof Infestations & How to Prevent Them

2018

A roof plagued by mold, rodents and other unsavory substances/animals is a roof in danger. Yet many homeowners are unaware of the fact that their roof is infested. However, there are some telltale signs of a roof infestation. Here is a look at how to tell if your roof might be infested and what you can do to prevent a worsening of the situation.

Mold Infestations

Mold infestations occur when the roofs leak or are otherwise damaged. This gross substance forms when moisture seeps down from the roof and reaches the wood. Moisture rots wood and leads to mold growth. Roof leaks typically occur when there is inadequate insulation, strong storms, ice dams and damage caused by animals. You might have a mold infestation in your roof if you smell a musty scent coming from the attic. This scent is an indication mold is growing, yet there might not be any other clear signs of its presence.

In some case, roof mold manifests with visible signs. If your attic has blotchy stains, there is likely a mold infestation. Mold tends to look similar to soot. It is typically black, brown, grey, white or green in hue. In most cases, mold typically appears in the form of diminutive black spots.

How to Stop Mold from Infesting Your Roof

The best way to stop a mold infestation before it starts is active prevention. If a particularly strong storm passes through the area, have your roof examined by one of our roofing Dallas professionals. We will analyze its integrity, pinpoint weak spots and repair them right away so mold can’t move on down below. If your roof has already been compromised by mold, our roofing experts can help with a comprehensive clean, roof repair and possible replacement.

Animal Infestation

To the average Texas homeowner, it seems a bit far-fetched that an animal will find his way onto the roof, move on down below and access the attic. However, animal infestations happen more frequently than most assume. Anything from a bat to a bird, squirrel, chipmunk or various insects will attempt to move into your home by way of the roof. These infestations are particularly common when the weather is cold.

An animal that breaches your roof can cause significant damage to your home and even put your loved ones at risk for disease and injury. So, don’t neglect those odd noises coming from above. They are an indication of an animal infestation in your Dallas roof.

How to Stop a Rodent Infestation from Ruining Your Roof

Though these little buggers are certainly sneaky, you can do a couple things to decrease the chances of an infestation. The best thing you can do is have your roof inspected at least once per year. Our roofing contractors will analyze areas of risk like openings along the ridge and other gaps/damage to the fascia, soffit and so on.

If any openings, cracks or holes are in other parts of your home’s exterior aside from the roof, they should be sealed right away. Bushes and shrubs should be trimmed so insects and rodents do not have an easy means of entering your home. Finally, it will help to have the attic properly insulated so there is an extra layer of protection against those pesky critters.

Do not underestimate the risk of a roof infestationDo Not Underestimate the Risk of a Roof Infestation

Pests in the attic can cause all sorts of problem. They drop their waste in the attic and spread disease. They can destruct the entire roof. It is even possible for animal droppings to damage the home’s structure. Furthermore, animal droppings are odorous. In the case of bats droppings, human exposure has the potential to lead to lung disease.

Rats, bats and squirrels will chew away at your home’s wood, eat away at electrical wiring, pipes and cables. Rodents will even tear apart your insulation by way of the attic, making your home less energy efficient and more costly to warm/cool.

If you even slightly suspect your roof is infested with mold or rodents, do not assume the problem will work itself out in due time.  Our Dallas roofing team is here to help. Give us a call at 469-305-0010 to learn more about our roofing Dallas services and schedule an assessment of your roof.

3 Home Roofing Services You May Need After Winter

3 Home Roofing Services You May Need After Winter
21
Feb
2018

The winter’s low temperatures, harsh winds, dry air, ice, and snow pose serious threats to your shingles, gutters and other portions of your home. Have your roof inspected upon winter’s end and the roofer just might notice one or several problem areas.

While large trouble spots can’t be observed from the ground, an expert analysis performed atop the roof is necessary to determine if maintenance, repairs or a full roof replacement is needed. Here is a look at home roofing services that should be performed during a roof inspection following the winter months.

Home Roofing Service #1 – Check for Ice Dams

It’s possible for ice dams to form when snow and/or ice buildup on the roof. Ice dams prevent water from flowing off the roof. Instead of sliding off the roof, the water is sent below the shingles, down into the roof and possibly into the house. It is even possible for ice to accumulate to the point that it forms large ice dams that cause the rain gutters or flashing to tear right off the roof.

Home Roofing Service #2 – Inspect the Attic for Moisture

The warm air that moves up into your attic during the winter will combine with the already-present cold air and likely create condensation. This additional moisture is terrible for the attic as well as the roof structure.

If moisture remains for an extended period of time, it will lead to the formation of mold, mildew and even roof rot. This is precisely why every attic requires adequate insulation. Let our home roofing service team check the roof as well as the attic for indications of excessive moisture.

The warm air that rises through your home in the winter months moves into the attic and heats up the roof. A warm roof melts ice, snow, sleet and other moisture. This water should run down off of the roof. However, If the temperatures are particularly low, this water might subsequently freeze along the edge of the roof. Water can also leak into the roof, causing the roof to become heavier and weigh down the gutters as well as the home’s structure.

Home Roofing Service #3 – Check for General Roof Damage

Winter weather followed by a spring thaw can lead to roof flashing, causing shingles to become unsteady and ultimately weigh down the roof’s gutters. Have your roof inspected following the winter to ensure it has survived these alterations without significant damage. Our home roofing service experts will be happy to check your roof for damage, trouble spots and other problems after winter’s end.

It is also possible for hail to badly damage the roof. Hail has the potential to damage even the most formidable metal roofs, vents and flashing. Ridge caps tend to endure damage as they are most likely to suffer a direct hit. Hail tends to leave small circular dents on the shingles. These dents ultimately weaken the shingles, reduce their useful life and create the potential for water to move below. We can repair your hail-damaged roof in the aftermath of a storm so it looks and functions as it should.

Your Roof Deserves A Thorough Inspection After Winter

Many homeowners are unaware of the common signs of weather-induced damage. Furthermore, the signs of weather damage are difficult to spot from the ground. Do not put your well-being or that of your family in jeopardy by attempting to climb up on your roof and perform an inspection. You need the trained eye of an experienced roofer to pinpoint trouble spots that formed during the winter and perform appropriate repairs.

Whether it is a leak, a torn shingle, a crack, hole, dent or a completely broken shingle, our home roofing service crew will identify all the problem spots following the winter. We will review all of the available options to determine the best approach for repair or replacement. Contact us today to schedule a free roof inspection to ensure your roof is in tip-top shape as we segue into spring.

McKinney Roofing: 6 Choices for Your Roof

Posted by: Elevated Roofing   /   Tags: , , , , ,   /   Comments Off on McKinney Roofing: 6 Choices for Your Roof
6 Choices for Your Roof
14
Feb
2018

No two McKinney roofing systems are exactly the same. North Texas roofs differ in terms of material, size, shape, slope and other features. In general, there are six types of roofs. Roofs comprised of asphalt shingles are by far the most popular. Wood shingles and shakes, slate, composite, energy efficient and clay/concrete tiles are the other types. Here is a look at each type to help you determine which is best for your home.

1. Asphalt and Asphalt Fiberglass Shingles

These two roof terms are used in place of one another. The majority of today’s roof shingles are best described as asphalt fiberglass shingles. Fiberglass mat is embedded within the shingle for additional strength and resistance to wear and tear. These shingles are especially popular for sloped roofs as they are cost-efficient, sturdy, available in numerous colors and easy to place. Opt for a premium grade of laminated asphalt fiberglass shingles and you will enjoy a warranty upwards of half a century.

2. Concrete and Clay Tile

Less common to see with McKinney roofing, concrete and clay tiles are aesthetically pleasing but costly. They are typically grouped with one another as they are materials used for masonry roofing and have specific requirements for installation.

Regardless of which is used for the molding material, the ultimate result is roofing tile that overlaps or connects with nearby tiles. However, when considering McKinney roofing, concrete and clay tile roofs may be ideal as they do best in warm climates with rainfall.

3. Wood Shingles and Shake Roofs

Shakes and wood shingles are typically derived from red cedar, Eastern white cedar or Alaskan yellow cedar. Such evergreens generate wood that proves resistant to insects and rot.

Furthermore, this wood is dimensionally stable. There is an important distinction to note between shakes and shingles. Shakes are typically split from the log. They have more of a coarse texture. Shingles are smoother as they are sawed.

4. Composite McKinney Roofing

Composite refers to numerous types of roofing. It means there are several different types of materials used during the manufacturing process. Simulated roofing is one of the most popular composite roofing types as it is made of resin along with rubber taken from tires. Composite roofing looks similar to slate yet provides considerable longevity and an affordable installation price.

5. Slate Roofing

Most of the roofing slate on homes in the United States is derived from slate deposits in Pennsylvania and Vermont. This style of stone roof is costly to manufacture and difficult to install. Slate shingles are known to last upwards of a full century.

This type of McKinney roofing is incredibly resistant to all weather conditions. Slate has intrinsic damage-resistant properties that help it withstand temperature extremes. You can select from an array of different colors from grey to black, red and green.

The only downsides to slate roofing are the comparably high price of materials, cost of repair and weight. Slate is fairly heavy so your home’s structure below must be solid. Slate roofs eventually require tile and flashing replacement. This is not the type of McKinney roofing material you should attempt to repair on your own. Lean on the roofing experts to properly handle these heavy materials.

6. Energy-efficient Shingles

Elevated Roofing Recommends TImberline Cool Series McKinney Roofing

Shingles with the Energy Star rating provide the protection necessary while simultaneously enhancing your home’s energy efficiency. Cool roofs are engineered to reflect the sun’s rays, reduce the heat transmitted to your home and minimize the need for air conditioning.

As long as your energy-efficient shingles are properly installed, you will save a considerable amount on your energy bill. Reflective McKinney roofing can even decrease UV damage in those blistering Texas summers, ultimately prolonging your roof’s lifespan. Be sure to check to see if your roof product qualifies for an energy rebate or another incentive.

Roof Replacement Cost: Everything You Need to Know

Roof Replacement Cost: Everything You Need to Know
07
Feb
2018

If you are like most homeowners, you probably think roof replacement is an egregiously expensive project. This is an errant assumption! You do not have to bust your budget to replace your roof. Choose your roofing materials and roofing company wisely and you will end up with a lovely new roof that lasts decades. Let’s take a closer look at what influences roof replacement cost.

Why Roof Replacement is Necessary

If your roof is damaged by weather such as a violent hailstorm, powerful winds, pounding rain or a tornado, replacement might be necessary. In other instances, regular wear and tear will spur the need for a roof replacement. Perhaps you are considering the addition of a new roof to enhance your home’s beauty and energy efficiency. Here is what to consider when looking at the cost of a roof replacement.

General Price Ranges for Roof Replacement

The average roof replacement cost usually falls in the range of $5,000 to $20,000. If you have heard stories about new roofs that cost in the low six figures, do not believe the hype! Though it is possible for a new roof to cost six figures, this is the exception to the rule. A roof that costs this amount of money is a high-end option. However, even if you spend as little as $5,000 on your new roof, it still qualifies as a major investment.

Roof Replacement Cost: The Material Matters

Roof Replacement Cost: The Materials Matter

The roofing material you select for your home or commercial building plays a large part in determining the total cost of this replacement project. The cost to install the typical asphalt shingle roof hinges on the selected material as well as the finish grade, prep work, surface area to be roofed, special requirements and the cost of labor.

Asphalt shingles are popular in the United States for good reason. This is an affordable, functional and visually pleasing roofing option. New asphalt shingles typically cost between $100-$400 for each roofing square.

New roofing involves the placement of shingles, dormer, valley and ridge metal, nails, flashing, boots, felt sheet, edging, and fasteners. In terms of cost levels, adding new roofing is by far the most expensive aspect of this project. Those who elect to upgrade their roof won’t pay as much as homeowners who opt for a completely new roof. In general, the cost of roof upgrades is about one-half to two-thirds of the cost of installing a new roof. Removing and disposing of the old roofing material is quite cheap in comparison.

The Role of Roof Size in Determining Roof Replacement Cost

The primary factor in determining roof replacement cost is size. The cost of roof replacement is dictated by the number of roofing squares required. A single roofing square is 10 feet x 10 feet, equating to 100 square feet. Roofers typically quote prices with these roofing squares so it is helpful to know the number of roofing squares necessary when attempting to determine the project’s full cost.

The typical residential home has between 20 and 34 roofing squares. If you have a considerable amount of equity in your home and/or an especially large roof, it might be prudent to research home equity loans or a home equity line of credit to reduce the total cost.

Roof Replacement Cost Depends on Roof Style

The shape and style of the roof play a major role in determining the cost of replacement. If the pitch/slope is steep, the cost will be higher. This is due to the fact that steep roofs are challenging to traverse. The roofing team will have to use additional safety equipment like harnesses to get the job done.

If the roof has a length-height ratio of 12:7 or greater, there will likely be an additional cost. Certain buildings might allow for the installation of a flatter roof that will prove cheaper to install. The only issue with flat roofs is they require more maintenance than other varieties. It might be necessary to replace a flat roof every 10 years or so as opposed to the three to five decades of use provided by other roofs.

Roof Features Also Matter

If your roof has a special feature like a skylight or chimney, it will impact the total price of the replacement project. Such features make roof installers work that much harder to place the new shingles. This heightened difficulty increases costs and makes the project that much more time-consuming.

Additional Roof Replacement Costs of Note

The old roof will have to be removed before the new materials can be installed. This removal will cost money as well. The roofer installers will strip away the current dilapidated shingles and felt sheet. They will strip it all on down to the roof sheathing. Furthermore, this material must be removed from your property. There is a cost associated with transporting these materials to the appropriate destination. The total cost of roof removal hinges on its size as well as its material.

The removal of a layer of asphalt shingle roofing will likely cost in the range of $100 to $150 or more. The removal of a double layer or triple layer will cost more as additional work is necessary. A roof that is especially steep, heavy or damaged by water will also cost more to remove.

A home located outside of the roofing contractor’s service area might spur additional fees. If your roof’s height is less than 16 feet, safety rigging will not be included. Permit fees and taxes may also add to the final bill.

Your roof is your main form of protection against rain, wind, sleet, hail and other threats from above. It’s one thing to have a loose shingle, but a leak damaging your possessions is a completely different problem. There are some situations that require emergency roofing and others that do not necessitate such assistance. Here is a look at some of the most common roofing situations that require the prompt assistance of emergency roofers and why emergency assistance is so important.

Emergency Roofing Service

Emergency roof repairs are performed to stop additional damage. A temporary fix allows for functionality until a more thorough job can be performed. The lasting repair is performed at another point in time.

Even a seemingly minor leak can justify an emergency roof repair. The noise and moisture of the leak are the least of your concerns. A roof leak causes water to pool, which can damage wood, including the decking of the roof. This weakening leads to a sagging roof that requires emergency roof repair from a skilled roofing contractor.

Furthermore, if the insulation is infiltrated, it will clump. Clumped insulation will not function effectively. Your energy bills will spike and your home will have mold-laden insulation. If that does not sound bad enough, consider the fact that the roof leak can compromise your home’s wiring. If the leak reaches the electrical wiring, your entire property will be one giant hazard.

Water is Serious Cause for Concern

When a roof is compromised, it will let water seep on through. In many instances, all that is necessary is a fairly minor and quick repair or the addition of a protective cover to prevent additional damage to the interior and structure. An emergency roofer will likely put a tarp on the hole until bad weather passes. The damage will be address and a permanent roof repair can be performed at a later time.

Causes of Roof Leaks

Gradual wear and tear can compromise shingles and spur the need for a roof leak repair. If the weather turns, if an animal breaches your roof or if there is a fire, emergency roof repair will be necessary.

Winds of 50 mph and faster can tear shingles off your roof, allowing water to reach the substrate and move below. Even wayward tree limbs can be blown about and damage your roof.

In some cases, lightning strikes the roof and creates a hole. Even a squirrel can chew through the roof and settle in. It is imperative you have your roof repaired right away so the resulting water exposure does not move on through these holes and leak down below. Each of these problems requires the assistance of our emergency roofing service providers.

How an Emergency Roofer Will Respond

If your roofing emergency occurs in the midst of a violent storm, our team will wait until the weather calms down. Once it is safe, we will get right to work.

If the roof damage is caused by a fire, we will do our best to prevent water seepage. As long as the fire has not altered the structural integrity of the roof and it is safe, we will do our best to improve its condition.

What You Should do After Noticing Roof Damage

Relax. The damage has occurred, and you can only control what you do next. A professional roofer can help repair the damage and return your roof to normal. Do not try a DIY (do it yourself) roof repair, and do not try to patch a leak during severe weather. You need an experienced roofer’s assistance to safely assess damage and select the best approach for repair or possible repair or replacement.
