Residential Roofing Services in Fairview, TX
Life just seems easier when your home is in good shape. There’s enough to worry about away from home, so a solid foundation, a reliable structure, and a comfortable living space can go a long way in creating a low-stress environment. A strong roof is major part of the equation. If your roof is not up to standards, trust residential roofing services.
You might be able to avoid hail damage to your car by keeping it in the garage; but when it comes to your roof, there’s not much you can do. Hail will hit your roof. Protecting your roof is a matter of minimizing the damage and fixing the damage before it gets past the point of repair.
Minimizing hail damage starts with choosing the best roofing material. There are many factors to consider when choosing a roofing material. Price is generally the determining factor, but lifetime, maintenance, and hail-resistance are also pretty important.
As you’d imagine, price, hail resistance and lifespan generally go hand-in-hand. The more expensive a material is, the more durable it is, and the longer it’ll last. That’s why slate and metal, two of the more expensive materials, handle hail impacts the best and last between 50-100 years.
The more common asphalt roofing is far more affordable, but it won’t last as long and tends to be vulnerable to hail damage. That being said, roofing manufacturers have been producing hybrid asphalt shingles that at least slightly improve upon some of its weaknesses.
We suggest discussing your options with your roofing contractor. He/she will break down the pricing, as well as the pros and cons, of each shingle type. They’ll also know which ones are strongest against hail.
If your current shingles are damaged, then they should be repaired by a company that offers residential roofing services. Hail damage is most common type of damage done to Fairview, TX roofs, but wind, heat, cold and moisture can pose threats as well. Roofing experts will get on top of the roof to assess the cause and extent of damage.
Wind damage is usually easy to determine, because part of the shingle will be raised slightly. Areas affected by moisture damage will be softer than areas unaffected. Damage caused by extreme temperatures varies depending on the situation.
Damage by hail is the hardest to spot. Shingles will be dented, but not always discolored. Sometimes the material will wear down and the underlying plywood will be exposed. Most of the time though, the dents will be felt.
The gutters are a good place to check for hail damage. For materials like asphalt, hail impacts will loosen granules and the granules tend roll down to the gutter.
Regardless of whether it is minor damage, such as a hail dent, or major damage, such as a roof leak, your roofing contractor will have the solution. Trust in the expert services of Summit Roof!
If the damages are severe, then a roof replacement will probably be necessary. Your contractor will weigh the cost of replacement vs. cost of repair and advise you of the wiser financial decision. Replacement can cost as little as $4,000 to as much as $30,000 depending on the material you choose.
Asphalt and wood roofing will be on the lower end, while metal, clay and slate will be on the higher end. Something completely unique, like solar roofing, will cost much more.
A cost such as that of roof removal can often be avoided. Many shingle types are light enough to where they can be laid over the old shingles. This shouldn’t be a problem for asphalt, though slate and clay will probably be too heavy.
Proper installation is the most important thing. You need to hire a roofing company with proper experience and a proven track record of success. Your roof is far too important to be left in the hands of a team that’s incapable or uncertain. Trust in a company that offers expert residential roofing services.
