Best Dallas Roofing Contractor for Dependable & Reliable Roofing Services
Your roof is not only one of the most important components of your home, but also one of your most valuable assets. Your roof protects your family & all of your belongings from the elements. Every day your roof is on-call, providing shelter from the sun’s heat, rain, hail, tornadoes, windstorms, snow, etc. A cracked or broken roofing system makes your home vulnerable to leaks and water damage. It is important to take preventative measures to care of your roof yearly. What starts as a small leak, can turn into a major repair or require full replacement.
Signs You May Need a New Roof
Curling Shingles: One thing that you want to look for are curled shingle edges, which is a sign of an older roof. This occurs naturally with an older roofer, and most insurance carriers do not want to see curling shingles. You may notice granules in your downspouts or floor. The granules on your shingle protect the shingle from UV, and when it is exposed, it can begin to curl and become brittle.
Shingle Adhesion: Poor tab adhesion can cause damage to the interior of your home. Tab adhesion happens as a roof ages. Shingles can lift as they detach and during a windstorm, a shingle can be lifted and blown off, and the roof is exposed for leaks.
Tree debris: Tree debris can become acidic as it degrades and ages your roof faster. Vegetation and debris can rot, and it becomes acidic, and ages this part of your roof.
Tree branches: They can provide access for rodents to get into your roof and attic, and tree branches can rub your roof’s shingles, damaging them. Tree branches in general can be dangerous for your roof, as they can be vulnerable to windstorms and fall on your home. A branch can scrape your shingles and deteriorate your roof faster.
Corroded Metal: As a roof ages, metal roof vents can corrode, and will also need to be replaced.
Leaks: Are an obvious sign that something is wrong with your roof.
Missing & Broken Shingles: Exposes your roof to the elements. Make sure your shingles are intact.
Ventilation: A well ventilated is important for the health of your shingles and roof.
Roof Valley Deteriorating: Your valleys are important since rain and snow flows through valleys and into your gutters. If your roof valleys are degrading or shingles are missing in this area, this is how roof leaks start to appear
Light Through The Roof Boards: If you can see sunlight coming in from your attic, there may be issues with your decking and it may need to be replaced with your new roof.
There are a few main reasons that we see Dallas homeowner’s requiring full roof replacements.
Old age tends to be the main driver for Dallas homeowner’s needing to replace their aging roofs. As your roof ages, it begins to wear down and is less effective in its ability to shed water away from your home. This is when you may start to notice leaks developing in your home, waterspots forming on your ceiling, or shingles missing. If you notice granules in your downspouts or missing from your shingles, it’s a sign your roof is aging.
In the Dallas metro area, we aren’t immune to Mother Nature’s powerful storms. From powerful hail storms to windstorms and tornadoes. We see tremendous hail damage to Dallas roofs every single year. 2” hail can cause catastrophic roof failure. It not only breaks brittle shingles, but it can dislodge the granules on your shingles which exposures the mat of the shingle to the sun. This causes severe damage over time and causes leak spots to develop. In many instances, your homeowner’s insurance will cover this damage because it is an “act of god”. Wind storms can blow and lift shingles, exposing your roof to future rain storms. It is important to take care of any storm or hail damage immediately after it happens before letting it worsen. Many carriers also have a time statute or limit on how long after a storm they allow their policy holders to file a claim before their window of coverage expires on that storm damage.
Unfortunately, one reason that your Dallas roof may leak, and need to be replaced is because of improper installation. Roofing is a specialized trade, and not all contractors value their craftsmanship and attention to detail the same. A roof that is not installed to manufacturer code or specifications is vulnerable to leaks, and the manufacturer’s warranty may be voided. An improperly installed roof can cause catastrophic roof failure or roof caving.
Selling Your Home
We also get many requests for roof replacement from homeowner’s in the process of selling their Dallas home. A new roof can tremendously improve the curb appeal, market value and appraisal value of your home. In some instances, a transaction may be contingent on the roof being replaced.
