Every homeowner should know what, exactly, is involved in a legitimate roof estimate. This way, you won’t ally with a shady roofing company that provides an alleged estimate that falls short of what it really should be. Far too many homeowners are willing to accept an estimate with a dollar amount and little else. This is not to say every single roof estimate should be exactly the same. There will certainly be some differences between each roofing company’s estimates. However, these differences should not be significant. Let’s take a look at what a legitimate roof estimate from an elite roofing company should include.

Focus on Content Over Form in a Roof Estimate

A roof estimate jotted down on a sheet of paper might not be inferior to a typed-out estimate on a couple sheets of crisp paper that recently passed through the printer. What matters most is the content of the estimate rather than its form. As long as the roof estimate contains the critically important elements (including signatures), it will suffice regardless of the form in which it is presented.

Payment Information

Every roof estimate should explain which parties are responsible for specific portions of the roof project. If specific aspects of the roofing project will be outsourced to other companies, these parties and responsibilities must be identified in detail within the estimate.

The estimate must spell out the project’s start date, completion date and the terms of payment. Every last detail of the payment terms should be explained in-depth. This includes information about down payments, progress payments, and the end payment. Furthermore, the estimate should include a provision for you to hold back the final payment until you are completely satisfied with the job.

Costs

The roof estimate should include the cost of materials and labor. Even the cost for the pulling of permits should be noted. If the project will result in any sort of debris or a mess of any other sort, the estimate should explain if the roofing company is responsible for the cleanup and removal.

Roof Estimate Materials

The best roofers are willing to explain the type of shingles, flashing, underlayment and ventilation that will be used in the project in extensive detail within the estimate. This information should be highly specific. For example, it should explain the thickness of the underlayment, the locations of the flashing, the type of sealant for areas that mandate waterproofing (nail holes, flashing etc.) and the sizes of the fasteners and nails that will be used for the project. Even the brand of the products that will be used for your roofing project should be noted.

Warranty

Understand Your Roof Estimate Warranty Down to the Finest Detail | Elevated Roofing | Frisco, TXThe warranties of the workmanship and materials must be presented down to the finest details in the estimate. In general, limited lifetime warranties will have excellent protection during the initial years of the roof’s lifespan and be subsequently pro-rated after a certain number of years. For the most part, a lifetime warranty is generally considered to be half a century.

The estimate should state whether the warranty is transferable to a new owner of the property in the event that you decide to sell your home. The ability to transfer the warranty on the roof and workmanship will be a helpful selling point.

Insurance and Licensing Information

Proof of the roofing company’s license, liability insurance, and workers’ compensation insurance should be provided in the roof estimate. There should be a lien release that provides you with protection against liability in the event that the roofer does not pay the subcontractors or those who provide the roofing materials for your roofing repairs or replacement.

Provisions in a Roof Estimate

The estimate must include provisions for add-ons or order changes that have the potential to spur additional charges.

A Means of Exit

Every roof estimate should have a well-defined termination clause. This clause should explain the exact reasons why the contractor or you can terminate the agreement without any sort of penalty if the terms of the contract are violated.

Roofing Maintenance that Will Increase the Value of Your Home | Elevated Roofing | Frisco, TX

Just about every homeowner is on a mission to improve the value of his property. One of the best ways to boost your property’s value and appearance is regular roof maintenance performed by true professionals. Even if your roofing maintenance reveals minor issues that can be remedied fairly quickly and at a low cost, getting these repairs out of the way will prevent even larger problems while simultaneously increasing your home’s value.

Periodic Roofing Maintenance Helps Sell Your Home

Roofing maintenance is especially important for those who are looking to sell their home. A well-maintained roof free of debris and mold is a major selling point. After all, the last thing prospective home buyers want to worry about is whether the roof over their heads will collapse or falter in some other way. Have your roof repaired, replaced or improved in another manner and it just might make the difference between a low-ball offer and an acceptable offer worth serious consideration.

If you are still on the fence as to whether you should invest in your roof, consider the following fact. Homeowners who spend $14,000 for a new roof add such significant curb appeal that they typically increase the asking price on their home by $10,500. This is a 75% return on investment. Add in the fact that you will live in the home for a while before selling it and the investment makes that much more sense.

Regular Roofing Maintenance Can Reduce Your Utility Bills

Save on Your Utility Bill with Regular Roof Maintenance | Elevated Roofing | Frisco, TXEven if a roofing inspector determines you do not need a full replacement, identifying areas for repair will keep your home cooler and reduce your energy bills. A thorough roof cleaning will eliminate dirt, mold, algae, gunk and other debris that would have otherwise collected heat and moisture. Have these nasty particles removed and your roof’s white or light color will be kept clear to reflect the sun’s rays. As a result, you won’t have to operate your air conditioner as frequently. The ultimate result is significant financial savings.

Taking Care of Your Roof Keeps You and Your Valuables Protected

It is quite easy to lose sight of the fact that your home’s roof is all that stands between mother nature and you, your loved ones and your possessions. A regular roof inspection combined with the necessary repairs will ensure your roof is capable of protecting everything you love and value. Do not discount the possibility of your roof collapsing due to weak points that gradually worsen or build up debris. Even slight moisture has the potential to expand into a leak that soaks through your ceiling and onto your valuables. This is a costly problem that takes an abundance of time, money and effort to remedy. You can prevent such a nightmare scenario by having your roof inspected, cleaned and repaired.

A Faulty Roof Can Sabotage Other Home Improvements

There is no sense investing in home repairs if a lack of roofing maintenance or roof repairs will sabotage those home improvements. Imagine investing in new flooring, wallpaper and appliances only to have these improvements soaked by a leak stemming from a neglected roof. The bottom line is a poorly maintained roof can result in leaks or even a collapse that sends water and roofing materials into the attic, the interior walls, the foundation and beyond. Have your roof tended to before you invest in other portions of your home so you don’t waste your money.

Upgrade Your Gutters

Roofing maintenance extends to the gutters. The best gutters send rainwater away from the home while also adding value to the property. It is possible to upgrade your gutters in a simple way. Consider painting them the same color as your home’s exterior or its trim. Implementing a gutter protection system will prove especially appealing to home-seekers who detest cleaning out gutters.

The addition of copper gutters will significantly boost your home’s visual appeal. It is even possible to find low-cost aluminum gutters with a fake copper finish. You can upgrade your home’s current aluminum gutters with a stainless-steel gutter system that stands the test of time. The bottom line is seemingly minor additions can make a significant deal to your home’s look and the perception of prospective buyers.

New Shingles are an Excellent way to Boost Curb Appeal

Replace those aged and worn roof shingles and you will add an incredible amount of value to your home. Reliable fiberglass asphalt shingles will provide nearly a 60% return on investment. Or, opt for designer shingles to incorporate some extra special aesthetics for the perfect combination of function and form. This element of visual flair just might be what your house needs to stand out from the rest of the homes on the block and encourage prospective buyers to float out especially high offers.

First Employee at Elevated Roofing, Zoe Rice, Reaches Three Year Milestone

2017

This year, the first full-time employee hired at Elevated Roofing, Zoe Rice, reached a milestone of three years with the company.

Rice was brought on in 2014 by her step-dad and owner of Elevated Roofing, Mike Witte, who at the time contracted only two part-time salesmen.

Today, Elevated Roofing is the most trusted roofing company in Frisco, TX with a fleet size of twenty trucks, an in-house teams of roofing and gutter experts, and an impressive GAF Master-Elite certification.

Like the company, Rice’s role at Elevated Roofing has also seen change and growth.

Rice originally was hired to face-to-face market and develop relationships with professionals in industries who frequently require roofers.

However, the company’s success and growth demanded that Rice become more involved, from running the front desk and phones to launching Elevated Roofing into the digital and print marketing space.

“In a small business, especially a family-run business, you tend to wear a lot of hats! The motto is ‘when you see a need, fill it!’ so I’ve done a bit of everything,” says Rice.

Now, with a dedicated business and marketing team, Rice’s official title is “Relationship Manager.”

As relationship manager, Rice manages Elevated Roofing’s online and media reputation as well as spends time with the marketing and sales department ensuring that both clients and staff are happy throughout their entire experience.

“We understand that our client’s happiness is the main priority and without them we wouldn’t be here. The bigger we get, it can be easy to lose touch with them throughout the process. That’s where I am stepping in and making sure we maintain contact with them every step of the way,” says Rice

When prompted with what to expect out of Elevated Roofing’s future, Rice only had exciting news to share:

“I don’t want to give too much away, but we are looking at partnering with some local charitable organizations to volunteer as a team.  Also, you may soon be hearing my voice on the air during your morning commute offering some practical tips for local homeowners,” Rice gushed.

Obtain a Professional Roof Estimate Before Selling Your Home

If you are planning to sell your home, you should also consider a thorough roof inspection and roof estimate before placing your home on the market. In any case, buyers want to know what they may be facing once they take possession. Roof uncertainties have caused cancellations of sales contracts since no one wants unexpected roof repairs soon after the deal closes.

Roofs are among those home components that we ignore until disaster strikes. However, shingles blown off in high winds or the drip, drip, drip of a leaking ceiling will send you on a search for the first available roof repair expert.

Have a roof estimate on hand before determining your selling price.

How You Can Prevent a Sales Contract Cancellation

When purchasing a home, buyers naturally must have confidence in the condition of the roof. If repairs are necessary within the first years, the buyer should know how big the job will be. Uncertainty can be a deal breaker. A solid roof estimate in hand from a reputable roofing company can be sufficient to instill that confidence.

To assuage buyers’ fears about roofing conditions, having a certified roofing contractor perform a detailed inspection and provide a roof estimate before the listing is the best strategy. By doing this, you demonstrate to the buyer what may need to be done and what the cost could be. Open disclosure supports your integrity.

Building the roof estimate into your selling price allows you to

  • Repair the roof before closing, so you to receive full price.
  • Allow a cost reduction of a similar amount for the buyer to do the job later.

Is It Better to Fix the Roof First Before Trying to Sell?

Unless the home is being marketed as a tear-down, significant roof damage should be repaired before trying to sell.

Repair Your Roof Get a Roof Estimate | Elevated Roofing | TexasFixing a heavily damaged roof is of particular importance if you hope to sell fairly quickly. Prospective buyers look warily at heavily damaged roofs and are more likely to walk away. Loss of too many potential buyers results in many more weeks and months on the market which means you either drop your price or fix the roof. Future buyers will always lead with the question, “Why has this home been on the market for over six months in a healthy market?” The answer will be obvious.

Even fixer-upper buyers and home “flippers” prefer only minor repairs and renovations.

No matter how you do the math, you probably will not get 100% return on your repair or replacement cost. Remodeling Magazine in 2013 reported that owners would likely only receive about 53% back from a full roof replacement and perhaps 61.7% on minor roof repairs. However, the net return on those expenses depends upon how realistic your starting selling price happens to be.

Have a Roof Inspection Performed and Roof Estimate to Avoid Surprises

Between disclosure requirements and the buyer’s inspection, a home seller should avoid the conflict and legal issues of trying to hide shortcomings. The best solution is to be aware of all problems and either fix them before closing or offer an allowance to compensate the buyer for repair.

With a thorough professional roof inspection before listing, the roofing company may be able to certify that the roof is safe for at least five years, for example. This type of assurance should be sufficient for the buyer to proceed with the purchase.

Similarly, if your roofing company finds that repairs are needed, do them. You can recoup much of the expense with a quicker same and a somewhat higher price.

Reasons Why You Should Get a Professional Roof Inspection

Reasons Why You Should Get a Professional Roof Inspection | Elevated Roofing | Frisco, Texas

Roofs require an inspection at least once per year. Some homeowners are tempted to climb a ladder, get up on the roof and attempt to analyze their roof on their own. This is a major mistake that can backfire in a big way. Here’s why you should lean on the professionals for a comprehensive roof inspection.

Safety is the Top Concern in Roof Inspection

A non-certified roofer should not climb up on a roof in an attempt to perform a DIY inspection. Most roofs have a fair degree of slope that proves awfully difficult to traverse. In other instances, the roof is slippery due to rain, moisture, wet leaves or other substances. Someone who is unfamiliar with roofs could easily lose his balance, slip, trip and fall. Do not put your personal health or another person’s health at risk by getting up on your roof. Let one of our certified roofers handle this inspection project to ensure it is performed without injury.

A Professional Roof Inspection Prevents Expensive Problems

Certified roofers know exactly what to look for once they are up on the roof. These professionals have the training and experience necessary to identify weak points and areas that have the potential to become major problems down the line. This is the expertise you need to nip problems in the bud now so they do not become costly repair endeavors at some point in the future. A professional roof inspection might even highlight roof issues that can be repaired in the coming weeks or months so you don’t have to shell out the money required for a full roof repair. This proactive stance has the potential to save you tens of thousands of dollars.

Peace of Mind

Have your roof inspected at least once per year by a certified roofer and you will rest easy, knowing the barrier between mother nature and your loved ones is in solid condition. Some homeowners wait to have their roof analyzed until a particularly strong storm passes through. The roofer will look for damage stemming from the storm, weak points, leaks and other troublesome signs. The inspection might not turn up anything of note. However, you won’t know until you have a certified roofer get up there and take a close look at the nuances of your roof. Have your roof inspected by a legitimate roofer and you will enjoy an invaluable peace of mind.

An Annual Roof Inspection Facilitates Insurance ClaimsSchedule an Annual Roof Inspetion Elevated Roofing | Elevated Roofing | Texas Contractor

If you have any sort of roof-related insurance claim resulting from storm damage, a roof inspection will make the process much less arduous. The typical homeowner is not exactly sure what sort of roof work is covered by his insurance. There is no shame in not knowing these details.

Let a certified roofer conduct a thorough inspection, highlight the trouble spots, assist with the preparation of the insurance claim and perform the repairs. This assistance will make the insurance claim process that much easier in the stressful aftermath of a nasty storm.

A Professional Roof Inspection is Comprehensive

Some homeowners grab a pair of binoculars and walk around the perimeter of their home, assuming they can identify roof problems from afar. The truth is you can’t pinpoint some types of damage from the ground. It is necessary for a professional to get up on the roof and take a close look at its subtleties. This is an opportunity to find damage that can’t be seen from the ground. He might notice loose shingles, weakened shingles, gutter damage or mold/algae in the center of the roof that can’t be seen from the ground.

5 Common Reasons for A Roof Repair in Texas

5 Common Reasons for a Roof Repair in Texas | Elevated Roofing | Frisco, TX

We all like to think of our roofs as impenetrable barriers that are indestructible against all forces. Though most roofs are quite reliable, they are somewhat fallible. Roofs are especially vulnerable when harsh weather strikes. Here’s a look at five of the most common reasons for roof repair in Texas.

Moisture and Leaks and Roof Repair

All sorts of stimuli can cause the buildup of moisture and leaks. Perhaps a tree branch extends out over the roof and drops moist leaves. These leaves can accumulate, soak the roof and gradually form a leak. Perhaps rain or hail pounds your roof to the point that it weakens and a leak forms. Even the buildup of random debris has the potential to compromise your roof’s integrity and cause a leak.

Heating and cooling units that do not drain properly are also a major threat to your roof. They can easily pool water that seeps into the roof and eventually trickles right on down on to your living space. Be proactive with a timely roof repair and you just might prevent a nasty leak.

Improper Installation

One of the most depressing and frustrating reasons for roof repair is a faulty installation. Some roofers will rush through the installation job or make use of low-quality materials. This is why it’s important to hire an honest and credible company. In many instances, the Texas homeowner can’t be faulted in the slightest as the roof was installed prior to his purchase of the home. However, if you hired the roofers who ended up installing your roof in a flawed manner, be sure to check your warranty. The materials or labor might be covered by the warranty so you don’t have to pay for the repairs. If you have any doubt as to whether your home’s roof was properly installed, reach out to us for a professional analysis of the installation.

Trees

Tree limbs seem fairly harmless. They are usually quite narrow and almost always aesthetically pleasing. Unfortunately, tree limbs that extend too far can reach your roof and abrade the shingles’ surface. This abrasion eventually causes wear and tear across the top layer of the shingles. In some instances, the winds and rain will knock branches onto the roof, causing some truly nasty damage. Have your tree limbs trimmed as soon as they extend anywhere near your roof. When in doubt, have them trimmed as short as possible so it takes months, if not a year or longer for a branch to threaten the integrity of your roof.

Roof Ventilation Repair

Roof and attic ventilation is key to keeping a roof in tip-top shape. Ventilation occurs in a natural manner when vents are positioned along the base of the roof, toward the roof ridge, in the soffits or at the eaves. Such positioning allows warm air to exit and cool air to be sucked on in. Faulty ventilation will prevent the proper regulation of temperature and moisture in the attic. It is possible for moisture and heat to eventually build up and damage the shingles, sheathing, rafters and insulation. A timely roof repair is necessary to prevent increases in energy costs and/or the formation of mildew and mold.

Rodents and InsectsSquirrels in Attic Roof Repair | Elevated Roofing | Frisco, TX

All sorts of bugs, rodents and other animals will gladly live on or in your roof. This is especially true if you do not trim your tree branches and limbs extend out onto the roof as a sort of makeshift bridge. Everything from ants to birds, squirrels, chipmunks and beyond can cause damage to your roof. If you suspect bugs or animals are a threat to your roof, eliminate the problem right away before a roof repair is necessary.

Elevated Roofing Triples Office Space

2017

Elevated Roofing is excited to announce that they have tripled the size of their office space by acquiring the space next door to their current location, at 15222 King Rd in Frisco, TX.

The new space adds 3,000 sq. ft. of office space to their existing space at 1,500 sq. ft.

The existing office space previously housed individual office spaces for company executives, the majority of materials used on repair jobs, technology, conference rooms, tools and parts, misc. storage, etc.

Exponential growth, which drove Elevated Roofing to reach a milestone of 20 service trucks earlier this summer, was causing the once considered large office space to seem a bit packed.

“We had already been bumping elbows and bursting at the seams with all the growth that happened in the last year,” said Zoe Rice, Business Development Executive at Elevated Roofing.

“When we found out the neighboring space right next to our existing space would be coming available this summer, we jumped on it right away!”

The new space now stores roofing material, houses office space for new employees as well as workstations for salesmen who can come and go. The most important new addition to the space, however, is the storage available for gutter equipment.

Earlier this year Elevated Roofing made the decision to hire a team to complete all gutter work in-house for better quality control, rather than contracting outside companies.

The newly acquired space allows for Elevated Roofing to keep their recently hired employees comfortable, store overflowing material from the old space, store all new materials for gutter work, and better serve their customers by improving internal efficiency.

Need A Roof Remodel? Choose a Shingle that Compliments Your Home

People spend hours or even days looking for the perfect shade of paint for their home’s exterior. Yet many will spend merely a couple minutes deciding on the color of their roof shingles. There is a misconception that roof shingles have little to do with curb appeal. Though the entire roof cannot be seen from ground level, this does not mean the color of the shingles should be neglected. In reality, the appearance of shingles matters a great deal to prospective property buyers, neighbors and all those onlookers who pass by your home every day. It may be time for a roof remodel.

Roofing Shingles are the Icing on Your Home’s Cake

Shingles that are the perfect color will complement your home’s shade of paint. Alternatively, shingles that do not jive with your home’s color will sabotage all the hard work and money that went into making the home look good. Think of your roofing shingles as the icing on the cake. Shingles should add that extra special touch that makes everything below that much more appealing. This is why you should carefully select the perfect color scheme when it is time for a roof remodel or a full replacement.

Dark or Light Shingles? Roof Remodel.

An all-white home is akin to a barren canvas. You can add shingles of just about any color. Consider factors such as how your home fits in within the context of the neighborhood, its architectural style etc. In general, it is ideal to pair a white-colored home with shingle colors like blue, green, black, grey and brown. If you are absolutely insistent on a “green” roof that reflects the heat, you can pair a white-colored home with white or beige shingles. This hue will reduce your utility bill and lower the odds of needing a roof remodel yet it will also make your home look plain.

Selecting Shingles Based on the Home’s Brick For a Roof Remodel

Your home’s bricks are there to stay. The shutter and paint colors can be changed whenever desired. Be extra cognizant of how potential shingle hues will jive with the bricks that comprise your home. Once you have settled on a handful of colors that work nicely with the brick, consider how those hues complement the siding and paint colors.

Multiple Colors are IdealMultiple Colors Can Complement a Home's Exterior | Roof Remodel | Elevated Roofing

There is no sense in adding shingles in a color that exactly matches that of your home’s brick or siding. Even a color that closely resembles the hue of your home’s siding or brick will prove quite boring. Inject some life into your home’s exterior by selecting a shingle color that truly complements the exterior. Such complementary colors provide your roof with the dimensions that appeal to prospective buyers, satisfies the neighbors and makes you proud of your roof remodel.

Consider the Appearance of Roofing Shingles in Varying Environments and Conditions. A roofing shingle might look amazing beneath the light and less impressive in the shade. Your home is subjected to all sorts of different lighting based on cloud cover and other factors. Take a close look at each of your favorite roof shingles in varying shades of light. Ensure each of your home’s exterior hues complement the roof shingle in a wide variety of lighting conditions before making a commitment.

Alter Your Perspective

You can’t live in your home forever. There will come a day when you must sell. If the shingle doesn’t complement the remainder of the home, it will decrease your property’s resale value. Take a moment to consider how potential home buyers will perceive your house. If the shingle you select seems flawed in any way from a buyer’s point of view, don’t add it!

Proactive homeowners who take small steps to preserve the integrity of their roof often avoid costly roof repair and replacement projects. Though preventive maintenance costs a little bit of money and takes up some time, it can prevent even more expensive and time-consuming projects down the line. Let’s take a look at the best ways to prevent roof damage.

Pay Attention to Your Roof!

Most homeowners neglect their roof for the majority of the year and assume it will protect everything below without a problem. Though most roofs provide such support for decades, there is still the potential for things to go awry. Have your roof inspected at least once per year by a legitimate roof contractor.

We do not recommend that you get up on your roof and walk across the slopes on your own. Reach out to us for a professional roof contractor to perform an in-depth analysis of your roof’s condition. Our roof contractor might find minor problems that can be rectified now rather than later on down the line when they have become major repair projects or even spur the need for a full replacement. As an example, the roof contractor might find shingles that are loose and should be replaced before the next storm hits.

1. Don’t let Branches Interfere with Your Roof

Invest the time and effort necessary to eliminate branches and other forms of roof interference from surrounding landscaping. A branch that extends over or near your roof can fall and damage shingles to the point that they are torn loose. Such a branch can also serve as a connecting pathway for rodents and other animals to reach your roof.

If you spot a limb extending to your roof, don’t climb a ladder to get up to the roof on your own. Lean on the professionals to eliminate the threat and determine if it has caused any sort of structural damage. Our roof contractors have years of experience traversing roofs and identifying points of weakness. We’ll perform a thorough inspection of your roof in a completely safe manner.

Poor Home Ventilation Can Lead to A Number of Serious Problems | Roof Contractor | Elevated Roofing2. Ventilation Matters, Ask a Roof Contractor

Every roof requires ample ventilation. Unfortunately, a surprising number of roofs have poor ventilation. It is possible that poor ventilation will void your asphalt shingles’ manufacturer’s warranty. Poor ventilation can also permit winds to lift even the most robust shingles right off your roof.

3. Shingles Must be Firmly Connected to Your Roof

A shingle that is not tightly fastened to the roof is a major problem. Older roofs that seal shingles to one another through tar sealing or roofing nails gradually wear as time progresses. If you notice your roof’s shingles move when the winds pick up, it is an indication that it is time to take action. If water moves below the shingles, it can flow into your home and damage your valuables. It might even make your home uninhabitable.

4. Gutters Play an Important Role

If your gutters are beyond a decade old, it is possible they are nailed in place with a large spike. This spike and ferrule technique won’t prove effective for much longer than a decade. If any hail or sleet accumulates in the gutter, it will disconnect from the house sooner or later. As soon as any bit of space is between the fascia and the gutter, the pace of deterioration is hastened.

Don’t wait until there is a complete disconnect and the gutters are severely damaged. Take the extra step by cleaning your gutters when performing chores around the house. Eliminate all the leaves, debris and other built-up gunk. This way, rainwater will flow freely through your gutters.
