A Service We offer
Homeowners in North Texas rely on their home to protect them from the elements year-round. With frigid winters, violent spring and fall storms and torrid summers, weather conditions can be brutal. One of the most critical components to your home’s structural integrity is the roof. Without a well-maintained roof, your home cannot provide you with protection from the elements, energy efficiency and other benefits. Depending on the type of roof on your home and how well you have cared for it over the years, a typical residential roof may provide you with 20 to 30 years of protection. However, exposure to severe weather and other factors can dramatically reduce longevity. With over 15 years of experience with insurance companies for roof replacements, All Star Roofing of Garland is the company to call for all of your roofing needs.
Determining If You Need a Roof Replacement
Replacing your home’s roof is not a matter to rush into. In many cases, simply repairing minor to moderate damage can extend the life of your existing roof. You may have noticed signs of hail damage and may be concerned that a full replacement is needed. When you contact us to ask about a replacement, we will send an experienced and knowledgeable roofing expert to your home to inspect its condition. Because your roof may be steeply inclined and elevated, it is not safe for you to try to inspect the roof yourself. Through the helpful insight of our experienced team, you can learn how much life may remain in your roof and how significant the damage is.
Deciding When to Replace Your Roof
If one of our roofing professionals recommends a full replacement, you may consider delaying the service for a few months. While a roof replacement is a major undertaking, it is important to schedule service as soon as possible. When the integrity of your roof is not superior, the roof lacks the ability to properly protect your home from damage related to pest infestation, exposure to the elements and more. Water leaks and other issues can cause widespread damage inside your home that is expensive to repair. The best time to replace your home’s roof is as soon as you identify the need to do so.
Selecting the Right Roofing Materials
Before your new roof can be installed on your home, you must select the materials that will be used. We will tell you about the common materials that we use to place underneath the shingles as well as the quality supplies that we use to affix the materials to your home. Through All Star Roofing of Garland, you will have access to a wide range of shingle types. In addition to providing you with access to many colors, you can also choose between shingles that have a shorter or longer warranty period and lifespan. These shingles can affect the curb appeal of your property as well as its value. We will answer all of your questions about the options so that you make a smart decision about the care of your home.
Understanding the Replacement Process
Some roofing companies in the local area will install a new roof over the existing materials. This is an option, but it is not advisable. While it may save time and money associated with the task of removing the existing roofing material, it is not the most beneficial way to tackle this project. When you install a new roof over an existing roof, you add unnecessary weight to the structure of the home. Because the house typically cannot bear the weight of a third roof being added to the home, you increase the cost of a future replacement project. This is because the two underlayers must be removed rather than a single underlayer. In addition, when you place new shingles over the existing roof, your new roof may not lay flat. Any irregularities in the original roof will be projected onto the new roof. This reduces the integrity of your new roof from day one. In some cases, the warranty will also not be valid if the new roof is placed over an existing roof.
Because we strive to provide our customers with quality service, we remove the original roof as part of our replacement process. Our team will work efficiently to complete the work as soon as possible while always focusing on quality workmanship. We also go the extra mile to clean up all waste and other signs of our efforts before we complete the project.
Regardless of whether you think that your home needs a new roof or you are aware that a replacement is critical, we are ready to help you.
