A roofer in Dallas that has more than 5 years as a licensed contractor is sufficient for most roof repair services. Many roofers specialize in certain types of roof but the most common roof types in the Dallas area are asphalt shingle or tile roofs. Most experienced roofers will know how to handle metal roofs and flat roof. With the frequency of hail damage in Dallas, most builders have moved away from metal roof systems and are covering roofs with more durable materials. To find a professional roofing company in the Dallas area, one can do a quick Google search and check the ratings and reviews for each company. The more established roof contractors will have references and job portfolio showing the various projects they’ve completed.
In Texas, individuals must carry a license for either residential or commercial roofing. The individual must also have been working as a principle in a roofing company for a minimum of three years in the State of Texas before applying for a roofing contractors license. The liability insurance differs between residential and commercial contractors and it’s important to verify the roofer you are working with has the proper level of insurance. A guide to the licensing requirements can be found on the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas website. Small repair jobs and roof patches can be completed by a handyman roof repairman, however, the most they can charge is limited so be cautious with a handyman if the roof has extensive damage.
Depending on the age of the roof and extent of the damage, a visual inspection of the exterior and interior of the roof (from within the attic) may be necessary. If there is a roof leak, we’ll trace the source of the leak and suspect area of the roof where water is leaking in. Often, water travels across rafters and down pipes so a careful inspection of the crawl spaces and the interior of the home may be required to determine exactly where the roof is leaking. During the roof inspection we may need to remove some of the roof tiles to examine the underlayment and roof sheeting to figure out the extent of the damage and what needs to be repaired or replaced.
The best roofing contractors in Dallas can give you an opinion based on the cost to repair and older roof and whether the life expectancy of the roof will bring a return on investment. If the roof is new (less than 10 years), fixing the roof is usually your best option unless the roof has been grossly damaged by a hail storm, wind or tree damage. The decision can also depend on the materials the roof if made of the durability of those materials over time. For example, a wooden shake roof is very susceptible to deterioration and, unless sealed on a regular basis, will need replacement more often than a tile roof. If the under layer and structure of the roof is in good condition, replacing shingles or tiles can be the least expensive option. This is often called a “reroof” or “shingle roof replacement”. Roof restoration is common practice for Dallas homes that are older and outdated. A new roof can not only make the home more appealing but also increase the value of the property.
New roofs are constructed in same manner a roof is built on a new home. It typically takes a few weeks to complete the tear down of the old roof and installation of the new roof. Roofing crews in the Dallas area are plentiful, however, during the stormy season, a backlog can occur. Once the roof replacement has started construction, you’ll want the roofers to finish the job as fast as possible to prevent exposure and further damage to the areas of the attic and ceiling that are unprotected. It’s important to contact a roofing contractor in Dallas as soon as your have a problem with your roof so it doesn’t grow to the point where you need a new roof. Replacing a roof on your home can be intrusive and is considered a major renovation project.
