FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
As a homeowner, how can I tell my roof system has problems?
Too often, the first sign of roofing issues is when there is leaking or other damage on your ceilings. Doing an inspection twice a year can benefit you greatly. By catching issues early, they can be repaired before bigger problems arise. If you prefer to inspect your roof yourself, be sure to look at the condition of the shingles and seems, as well as the surface granules that may be gathering in your gutters. At the first sign of roof issues, call our residential roofing and commercial roofing professionals.
If my roof leaks, do I have to get the entire thing replaced?
Not necessarily. Leaks can be caused by a variety of smaller issues but if your entire roof is worn and old, it may be time for a replacement. Our roofing contractors will complete an inspection before any repair and suggest the best plan of action for your specific roofing system.
How long can I expect my residential roof to last?
Most residential roofing systems are designed to last for around 20 years. Since the weather in the Odessa, TX area is on the milder side, compared to other places in the country, your roof could possibly last even longer.
Why should I Hire a Professional Roofing Contractor?
Experience - Watching “how-to” videos is not the same as the years of experience and knowledge a professional roofing contractor has. No amount of research and studying will give you the same knowledge that experience can.
Time – When your roof requires repairs, it’s best that it is done right the first time around – which is something our roofing contractors know how to do. If you try to repair your roof on your own, you could end up creating even more problems.
Safety – One of the most common accidents related to roof repairs are falling accidents. In order to ensure safety, professional contractors have their own resources (including insurance) the right type of safety gear and the right type of equipment.
What do I need to do to prepare for my home for a roof install?
Put covers on furniture, relocate house plants outside, and figure out how to shield anything you will want protected against roofing debris and dust.
Move any fragile or unstable items from shelves or other areas where they risk falling or toppling over due to reverberation.
Remove any satellite dishes or antennas from areas of your roof near where work will be done
Create easy accessibility for the roofers, such as by parking your car elsewhere to leave space for their trucks and freeing up power outlets for their equipment.
Prepare your children and pets that workers will be at the house, and that there will be noise and certain areas that need to be avoided for a period of time.
