Do I Need A New Roof?
You might not think about your roof much, but it is your home's first defense against the elements. There are several signs to look for to determine if your roof needs replaced. If you notice any of the following symptoms, you want to have a professional roof inspection to determine the cause of your problem and if you can have it repaired or have your roof replaced. Either way, it is vital to address all issues as soon as you notice them.
- Peeling or blistering of paint
- Leaks in the attic
- Cracked, pitted, curled, bald or missing shingles
- Dark patches on the roof
- Mold, mildew or exterior decay
- Stains on interior walls or ceilings
- Higher than normal energy costs
- If your roof is older than 20 years and you notice problems, you will probably require a new roof.
What Are Common Causes Of Roof Damage?
If you need Kingwood roofing services, hire a local company. Some causes of roof damage are:
- Strong winds
- Hail Damage
- Thunder and lightning storms
- High winds
- Heavy rains
- Extremes in temperatures
- Falling debris such as limbs, twigs, and trees
Any of the above scenarios can cause significant roof damage, but living in the Houston area, our extreme temperatures can cause your roof to age faster than average. Either you or a professional must perform regular roof maintenance. It is crucial to identify minor problems with your roof when they occur so you can have small problems repaired immediately. This will help your roof last longer.
How Do I Hire A Roofing Company?
Having your roof replaced is a significant investment. You must choose a roofing company that has an excellent reputation for honesty, quality workmanship, and willing to work with your insurance if it is an insurance claim. Beware of companies that show up after a major hurricane or storm. It is best to hire locally.
- You are going to have to do some homework to hire the best roofing company you can.
- Ask for recommendations from friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors.
- Make sure they have all of the appropriate licenses and insurances, including liability.
- What type of warranty do they offer?
- Are their employee's professionals?
- Do they provide emergency services if necessary?
- Get an estimate in writing.
- Do they have a BBB rating?
If you are convinced, then they are the company you want to work with. Make sure you can get a written estimate that includes contingencies for the what-ifs. Having everything in writing can keep problems from arising later. Have a start date and a completion date on your contract, so you will know when they will start putting your roof on and when they will finish.
Never pay up-front for your roof. You may need to put a deposit down, but don't pay for your roof until it is finished and you are satisfied. For Kingwood roofing services, contact Texans Force and let us replace, repair, or inspect your roof today.
