Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About North Texas Roofs and our roofing company:
How long should my roof last?  Roofs deteriorate at different rates depending on many factors such as:
  • Weather Related Roof Damage - Hail, Wind, Sun
  • Maintenance Performed
  • Quality of original roofing material and construction
According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, asphalt shingles generally last 15-20 years; wood shingle/shakes, 10-40 years; clay/concrete tiles, 20 plus years; slate, 30-100 years; metal roofing, 15-40 plus years. 

My roof leaks.  Do I need to have it totally replaced?  Not necessarily.  Leaking can result because some flashing has become loose or because a section of the roof is damaged.  A roof failure, however, is generally not reversible and results from improper installation or choice of materials, or from the installation of a roof system inappropriate to the building.

When is the best time to have my roof replaced?  The most obvious answer is as soon as possible to avoid further damage.  When it comes to weather, we prefer it be above 32 F and the rain and wind occurrence is low.

How much will a new residential or commercial roof cost?  Each roofing scenario is different and requires expert on site assessment of your current roof.  Please contact us so that we may provide you with an on site estimate.

I like to do things myself.  Can't I just do the work myself?  Most work should not be do-it yourself.  Professional roofing contractors are trained to safely and efficiently repair or replace a roof.  Novices can harm a roof with improper roofing techniques and severely injure themselves.  Homeowner maintenance should be confined to roof inspections in both the fall and spring to check for cracked or curling shingles, and to cleaning rain gutters filled with dead leaves and other debris.
