First Employee at Elevated Roofing, Zoe Rice, Reaches Tenure Milestone

2017

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

Rice was hired in 2014 by Mike Witte, owner of Elevated Roofing, 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.

5 Common Reasons for A Roof Repair in Texas

5 Common Reasons for a Roof Repair in Texas | Elevated Roofing | Frisco, TX
02

2017

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

Posted by: Elevated Roofing   /   Tags:   /   Comments Off on Elevated Roofing Triples Office Space

Aug
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

Need A Roof Remodel Choose Shingle Color | Elevated Roofing | Frisco, TX

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!

Advice from a Roof Contractor on Maintaining Your Roof

Advice from a Roof Contractor on Maintaining Your Roof

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. Ensure Shingles are 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. Mind Your Gutters

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.

How to Maintain an Asphalt Shingle Roof

How to maintain an asphalt shingle roof

2017

A roof system that is not well-maintained won’t stand the test of time. It will require repairs and a full replacement much sooner than necessary. Thankfully, you have the power to be proactive and maintain your asphalt shingles in a careful and responsible manner. Here’s how to do it.

Perform a Regular Inspection

Have a roofing professional inspect your roof on a regular basis to identify existing problems and potential problems. He will look for biological growth such as blue algae and plant debris as well as torn shingles, a compromised chimney, soffit and beyond. Be sure to have your roof inspected by a professional at least twice per year. Ideally, this inspection will occur in the fall and spring. The roofing professional will ensure those small problems are tended to before they transform into massive problems.

A Regular Cleaning

One of the most important components of roof maintenance is performing a regular cleaning. Clear out all debris from the roof and its related systems. This means brushing all debris off of the shingles, flashing, eavestroughs, vents, skylight, solar panels and beyond. Clean out the down spouts and ventilation to boot. Make use of a trowel to scoop out leaves and other debris from the gutters so water can drain through the downspouts with ease.

Though some of this “roof housekeeping” can be performed from the ground or a low level, it will be necessary for a skilled roofer to get up on the roof to eliminate all potential sources of damage. Do not attempt to do this yourself. Lean on our experienced roofers to get the job done right.

Mind the Nearby Tree and Plant Growth

It is possible for trees, shrubs, and other greenery to grow out onto your roof and cause considerable damage. Trim tree branches that are near or touching your roof. Cut away all other vegetation that hangs over the roof. When in doubt, lean on a contractor to clip the areas that are especially hard to reach.

Eaves Protection

Some homeowners install metal meshed grate protectors to ward of debris buildup and facilitate cleanups.

Get Those Roofing Repairs out of the way Now

If your roof inspection identifies problem spots that require repair, do not drag your feet on having those sections of the roof remedied. Lean on our roofing aficionados to complete your asphalt shingle roof repairs and you won’t’ have to worry about whether the structure can protect you against the elements. Minor roof repairs performed in a thorough and timely manner will ward off more expensive and serious repairs as time progresses.

Examples of common roof repairs include the installation of valley flashing due to corrosion and replacing flashing around the roof vent, chimney and other installations. Gutters and downspouts might require caulking, patching or the application of roofing cement to prevent sagging and remedy corrosion. It is also quite common for broken, missing or buckled asphalt shingles to be repaired with cement or nails.

Give Your Roof a Once-Over Every now and Then

You can identify certain roof issues from the ground. Take a look at your roof from time to time to see if one or several shingles are missing. If you spot a missing shingle or two, don’t shrug it off as “just the way it goes”. If you do not tend to this problem, it can result in considerable damage to your roof. A missing shingle opens up your home to exposure to the elements. Missing shingles also permit wind to knock away sections that otherwise would not be vulnerable if the missing shingles were addressed.

Elevated Roofing, A Frisco, TX based Roofing Company, which services all of North Texas, has recently expanded its in-house operations and now has the ability to service gutters, as well as residential and commercial roofs.

Like most roofing companies, Elevated Roofing used to outsource their gutter jobs and other general contracting work to companies they partner with.

While they continue to outsource trusted companies with some other general contracting work, Elevated Roofing now completes all gutter jobs in-house.

They have hired an impressive team and purchased two more trucks to better service their customers in need of roofing and gutter work.

Gutters work together with the roof to protect your home from mother nature. Since gutters and roofs receive the same natural wear-and-tear they often need servicing at similar times.

This step allows Elevated Roofing to better manage quality control by servicing both the roof and gutters in-house.

“We are excited to get this off the ground to better serve our loyal customers by ensuring quality work, every time,” says Mike Witte, President of Elevated Roofing.

If you need roof work or gutter work, Elevated Roofing is the company for you!

Cutting Energy Bills with Roof Replacement

Cutting Energy Bills with Roof Replacement
26
Jun
2017

If you are like most homeowners, you have thought long and hard about how to reduce your energy bills. You have probably tried it all, from unplugging devices to prevent the use of “phantom energy” to cutting back on the number of Christmas lights and using the air conditioning less frequently. There is a lesser known but extremely effective means of reducing your energy bill: roof replacement.

How a new Roof Cuts Energy Bills: Prevent Heat From Escaping Through the Roof

Schedule your roof replacement in the fall and your energy bills will decrease. This reduction occurs because heat rises and escapes through old, outdated and worn roofs. The installation of a brand new roof will prevent the majority of such heat from escaping your home. As a result, your energy bills will decrease and you will enjoy a comfortable living space without having to worry about whether setting your thermostat at the desired level will increase your utility bill. Start preparing your budget this summer for a fall roof replacement and you will enjoy a winter of lower energy bills. In fact, your new roof will eventually pay for itself across posterity through reduced energy bills and fewer repairs.

Add a Light-Colored Roof to Your Home to Save Money

One of the best ways to cool your home is with the addition of a light-colored roof. Known as “cool” roofs, these roofs are a pale color that reflects heat and light away from the home. It is a stark contrast to dark-hued roofs that absorb light and heat. Numerous studies have shown that a light-colored roof results in significant energy savings. Consider the fact that a dark-colored roof can reach upwards of 175 degrees on a blazing hot day. This heat will inevitably transfer to your livings pace and increase your energy costs.

Don't Let Your Electricity Bill Go Through The Roof!Roof Replacement: Look for the Energy Star Label

A roof that has been awarded the Energy Star label is ideal for conserving energy and reducing utility bills. Select a new roof with an Energy Star label and you can rest easy knowing it will reflect the sun’s rays and decrease surface temperature by upwards of 100 degrees.

Add new Insulation With Your new Roof

Insulation below your new roof will help maximize your home’s energy efficiency. Insulation in the attic alone is not enough. Insulate the roof and you won’t have to turn on the air conditioner as much in the summer and the heating system as much in the winter. Make sure there is an air space between the roof and the insulation so moisture does not become trapped and spur the growth of mold/mildew.

Opt for Sustainable Roof Materials to Reduce Energy Bills

Opt for the right roof material and you might save upwards of 30 percent in energy costs. Sustainable roof materials include reflective coatings that keep your roof as cool as possible. Elastomeric roof coatings reflect light and heat, allowing for a considerable energy savings. This coating also extends your roof’s longevity to boot. If you are interested in sustainable materials for your roof replacement, contact Elevated Roofing for more information.

Improved Shingles and Ventilation

A new roof with ample ventilation will reduce your energy bills. Ventilation is necessary to prevent hot air from being trapped within the structure. The trapping of hot air spurs your air conditioner to work that much harder. Furthermore, a new roof adds shingles to replace the outdated ones on your current roof that have a comparably low rating. Modern shingles withstand winds upwards of 130 mph, preventing gusts from infiltrating your home and spiking energy costs.

Dallas Roofing – Don’t Get Scammed After A Storm

Dallas Roofing-Don't Get Scammed After A Storm
19
Jun
2017

The state of Texas leaves it up to property owners to pinpoint trustworthy, high-quality roofers. Though the state might eventually require roofers to be certified, just about anyone can claim to be a roofer at the current moment. The mantra of “buyer beware” certainly applies. There are plenty of scam artists posing as legitimate roofers, especially in the aftermath of hailstorms.

Don’t let Scammers Capitalize on Your Vulnerability

Texas gets its fair share of wind, rain and hail. If your roof endures any sort of damage from these storms, do not hire any old roofer to perform the repairs. Fraudsters abound, especially following nasty weather. Some even go door-to-door peddling their alleged services. If anyone shows up at your door following a storm and tries to sell roof repair services, tell them to go away and shut the door. Few, if any, elite roofers attempt door-to-door sales in this day and age.

The Deductible Scam

Some shady roofers will tell a prospective customer he does not have to pay his insurance deductible. They will state there are ways around paying this portion of the claim. However, these means of bypassing the payment work for the scammer rather than the property owner. The fraudster proceeds to use low-quality or stolen materials for the job. He over-bills the insurance company or performs a fraction of the work described in the adjuster report. The property owner sends the fraudulent invoice to the insurance company and can be found guilty of fraud. This action is punishable by upwards of two years in jail plus fines.

Contingency Contracts

This scam starts out with the fraudster using the deductible lie described above to persuade you to sign a contingent. Details are worked out with the insurance adjuster so the repair project can commence. The problem is the fraudster’s contingent contains “bird seed” that states you owe a certain amount of money for their representation or you agree to pay for your roof to be replaced for an unspecified amount of money.

Be Leery of Sales Calls Following Storms

There are plenty of lead generation groups that call homeowners in an area hit by harsh storms. They offer roof repair and replacement services over the phone. Yet they won’t state the name of the business they represent. This is due to the fact that they are not a part of a legitimate roofing company. They sucker highly vulnerable property owners into their scam, take their information and sell it to a Dallas roofing company. The roofer pursues these “leads” to push their repair/replacement services.

Due to recent storms, North Texas has fallen victim to an alarming number of these scam calls and contracts. This means legitimate Dallas roofing companies are having to manage a spike in roof repairs as well as repair damage caused by fraudulent roofers.

Never Pay Full Roof Repair or Replacement Costs Until After The Job Is FinishedPaying Repair Costs Before the Work is Performed

A roofer who requests payment for the full cost of the repairs up front might be a scam artist. Demanding the entire payment all at once before performing any work is one of the quickest ways to pilfer a homeowner’s hard-earned money. Senior citizens commonly fall prey to this scam. Many will take the money and never return to perform the repairs. A trustworthy and credible Dallas roofing company won’t request full payment before the work commences. In general, an initial payment of 50-75% is necessary to secure a roofer’s services.

How to Find a Legitimate Dallas Roofing Business

It takes a little bit of effort to ensure you are doing business with a credible roofing company. Check the prospect’s website before hiring any Dallas roofing company. Make sure there is a legitimate “About Us” section, address and phone number. Take a look at the company’s online reviews. It also helps to check with the Better Business Bureau to find out if customers have logged complaints against the prospect.
