Pearland roof replacement with high-quality laminate roof shingles

Roofing Options For Your Pearland Roof Replacement

If you plan to get a brand new roof, you might be wondering what your roofing options are. This is especially true if you want to upgrade your roof so it lasts longer, so in this article, we will discuss what your options are when you get a Pearland roof replacement done by Amstill Roofing.

Standard 3 Tab Shingles

3 Tab shingles are the most common and most economical roofing option we offer. Their warranty lasts for about 20-30 years in perfect weather and climate conditions. Many Pearland homeowners purchase these shingles because they get the job done, last a fair amount of time, and are highly affordable. However, as with anything, there is a trade-off. The trade-off associated with 3-tab shingles is that they won’t last as long as other, more expensive options due to the fact that they only consist of a single layer of protection. This single-layer design makes them lightweight, but the fact that they’re lightweight makes them more prone to curling and flying off of your roof when there are strong winds, such as those during the hurricane and tropical storm season.

Upgrade Your Basic Roofing To Sturdier Laminate Roofing Shingles

A level above the 3-tab roof shingle is the laminate shingle. Compared to the 3-Tab shingle, these have extra layers that aid in withstanding strong winds and more severe weather conditions over time. Because of this, their warranty is between 30-50 years, depending on the weather conditions. These roof shingles are significantly stronger and more protective than 3-tab roof shingles, making them a viable option for your Pearland roof replacement.

High-End Architectural Shingles Are The Ultimate Investment In Your Pearland Roof

Our architectural shingles are the best option for those who want to add significant value to their homes while safeguarding their roof for an extended period of time. Due to the fact that these roof shingles are heavier and thicker than the aforementioned options, they boast a warranty of 50 years to a lifetime! How much would you like not having to worry much about your roof for 50 years?

Amstill Roofing Installs High-Quality Roof Shingles To Guarantee A Proper Pearland Roof Replacement

We want to reiterate that the lifespan of your roof shingles is highly dependent on the weather and climate over the years and how well you maintain your Pearland roof. Realistically, some years have more severe weather than others. If you think the lifespan of your shingles may be reaching its end, or if you wish to increase the value of your home, then please contact us so we can start the process with a free Pearland roof inspection. Once we complete our inspection, we will move forward with your Pearland roof replacement, for which we offer financing options and also get you in touch with your homeowner’s insurance company.

Katy, Texas Roof Replacement FAQ

Katy roof replacement should take place every 15-20 years, on average. There are often many questions that we get when we work with a client in need of roof replacement, so in this article, we will answer some of our most frequently asked questions.

What Is The Longest My Roof Can Last Before It Needs To Be Replaced Again?

In Houston, the excessive heat, tropical storms, and hurricanes mean that roofs last an average of 15-20 years, but how long your roof lasts also depends on what type of roofing you installed and how well you maintain your roofing. Architectural roof shingles (Type blog) can boast a lifetime warranty and may last 50 years to a lifetime on average.

My Roof Is Leaking. Does It Need To Be Replaced?

Many tend to think a roof leak means their roof is done for, making Katy roof replacement imminent. However, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes some roof repairs will do the job, but if you want to know for sure, starting with a roof inspection is the way to go.

How Can I Keep Roof Replacement Within My Budget?

Roof work is rather daunting, so it’s not rare for homeowners to immediately start stressing out about the cost and their budget. Don’t worry though; when we inspect your roof, we can provide an estimate. Further, Katy roof replacement is made more affordable with insurance coverage and our multiple financing options.

Can I Replace Only A Part Of My Roof?

There are two options: one is to replace a portion of your roof that has been damaged, and the other is to replace everything, including the underlayment. However, when you replace only a portion of your roof, this is considered a Katy roof repair and can only be done if the underlying structure is still intact. If the roof is damaged down to the decking–or even the frame–then replacement of the entire structure is the best option for the safety of your home and your loved ones.

If you’re considering getting any roof work done and would like to determine if a Katy roof replacement is necessary, then please contact us so we can inspect your roof and answer more specific questions.

When To Get Kingwood Roof Replacement Instead Of Repair

You may have been seeing your neighbors getting brand new roofs lately. If you look at your roof, you may be wondering if you should get a Kingwood roof replacement as well, or at least pay for some Kingwood roof repairs in the meantime. This decision is an important one, and like most important decisions, it is also a bit difficult to make. In this article, we will offer insight on when you should consider getting a roof replacement and roof repairs so that you can make an informed decision.

Is Kingwood Roof Replacement Better Than Roof Repair?

Some homeowners think that a roof replacement is best because they can have a brand new roof that is guaranteed to last for years to come. While this is logical, other homeowners think a roof repair is better than a replacement because it saves money and does just enough to last them until they can afford a full roof replacement. This is also a logical way of thinking, but the truth is that one roofing service is not better than the other. It really depends on what your roof and your family need.

When You Should Get A Kingwood Roof Replacement Or Repair

We typically recommend a Kingwood roof replacement when multiple roof shingles have sunken and buckled or torn off, causing a chain reaction that compromises the rest of your roof shingles. Kingwood roof damage that is this extensive must be addressed in a timely manner. 

Roof repairs are reserved for roofs that have some damage, but not enough that has weakened the majority of the structure. We often recommend roof repairs when only a handful of your roof shingles are cracked or curled but haven’t affected the adjacent shingles yet

Let Amstill Determine What’s Best For Your Houston Roof With an Inspection

As a rule of thumb, it’s safe to assume a roof replacement is imminent if most of your roof has sustained damage. This is because, since roof shingles are all fastened together, it’s easy for large amounts of damage to carry on into the adjacent areas of your roof. However, it’s always best to get a professional roofer’s opinion, so if you worry it might be time to replace your roof, please contact us so we can conduct a free roof inspection. Through our inspection, we will take a thorough look at your rooftop and check your shingles and flashing for all types of damage possible. Afterward, we will let you know whether you need a Kingwood roof replacement or roof repairs. Whichever the case, we look forward to safeguarding your roof and your family!

Roofing contractor installing roof shingles correctly during Friendswood roof replacement

Think Your Friendswood Roof Shingles Were Poorly Installed?

Did you get a brand new roof rather recently–between the last few months or last few years? Maybe you got a new roof because you moved to a new build or because you invested in a Friendswood roof replacement. Either way, if you discovered a leak during the recent downpours Houston has experienced or saw some things that you think might be out of the ordinary, then you may be wondering if your roof has sustained damage because it was poorly installed. In this article, we will offer some signs that indicate that this is the case and what you should do to correct it.

Signs Your Roof Shingles Were Installed Improperly

The following are some signs you should look out for when figuring out if your roof may have been poorly installed.

Missing Roof Shingles

This is the most obvious sign your previous contractor did a bad job installing your roofing. A roof that is less than 10 years old should not be missing any roof shingles unless a violent hurricane ripped through Houston.

Non-Uniform Appearance

Another obvious sign that your roof shingles were poorly installed is if your roof doesn’t look seamless and consistent all over. If some shingles are completely mismatched, or if one side of your roof looks good while the other doesn’t, then this suggests your old contractor attempted to cut corners and did not take yours or your family’s safety seriously when completing your Friendswood roof replacement or Friendswood roof repairs.

Roof Leaks

Roof leaks occur when roof shingles have been severely damaged, but if your roof hasn’t been around long enough for extensive damage to take place (you can always compare your roof with your neighbor’s), then a leak is suspicious and usually indicates that the roof shingles weren’t fastened properly or that the frame wasn’t built correctly.

Reusing Old Flashing

It’s not illegal to re-use old flashing when completing a Friendswood roof replacement, but a reputable Friendswood roofer that knows what it’s doing would never re-use old material because it would be weaker than the rest of the structure and may not even fit well with the rest of the structure.

What To Do If You Think Your Friendswood Roof Shingles Weren’t Installed Properly

These signs are very helpful to keep in mind when assessing the roofing job your contractor completed, but the best way to know for certain that your installation was faulty is by contacting us to get a free Friendswood roof inspection. 

Amstill Roofing has been servicing roofs in the Greater Houston area for over 40 years, so we can assess your roofing for you and determine what caused these problems. Following our inspection, we will help you determine whether you only need some Friendswood roof repairs or if a full Friendswood roof replacement is in order so that you can have peace of mind knowing that you and your family are safe.

starting the new year with Houston roof replacement

A New Year Is The Perfect Time For Houston Roof Replacement

After 2020, many are looking for ways to positively transform different parts of their lives. Some homeowners are likely thinking about finally going through with some renovations, including their roof! If this is you, the new year is the perfect time to get a brand new roof. In this article, we will discuss some signs that indicate you should consider replacing your roof to start fresh.

How To Tell If It’s Time For Houston Roof Replacement

The following are a few things you can look for to determine whether you might need a roof replacement this month.

Your Roof Has Reached (Or Passed) Its Warranty

In Houston, roofs last an average of 20 years, but this ultimately depends on what type of shingles are installed on your roof. Be sure to read our article about how long different roofs last in Houston.

Water Stains In Your Attic

When you can’t pinpoint how old your roof is, we recommend you go into your attic and carefully check for water stains and/or streaks along the ceiling and the corners.

Damaged Roof Foundation

When you can’t seem to spot water, does light seem to peek through the ceiling? Your Houston roof has multiple layers: the deck, 30-pound felt, your shingles, and shingle granules. If light is getting past all of those layers, then chances are water is as well because the material has broken through due to severe damage.

Missing Roof Shingle Granules

Though we don’t recommend you climb up onto your roof to see if your shingles are balding, we recommend that the next time you perform some Houston roof maintenance, you check your gutters to see if there are any shingle granules that wound up there. Once your shingles lose their granules, that loss of protection makes them deteriorate more quickly.

When In Doubt, Have Amstill Conduct A Free Houston Roof Inspection

The best way to know for certain that it’s time for a Houston roof replacement is by getting a professional roof inspection. If you would like to start the new year with a roof replacement, then please contact us. We can’t wait to give you a brand new roof to start the year off right!

Think You Might Need Friendswood Roof Replacement?

It’s pretty clear that Houston roof replacement is inevitable at some point or another, but homeowners certainly prefer to know for sure that they need a roof replacement. This way, they can plan for it beforehand to ensure they have an adequate roof replacement budget. In this article, we will tell you the different signs to look for that indicate it’s about time for Friendswood roof replacement.

Consider How Old Your Friendswood Roof Is

In the Greater Houston Area, roofs tend to last about 15 to 20 years before they need to be replaced, but a few factors can affect this:

Are Your Shingles Bald In Some Spots?

Balding shingles is the term we use to describe roof shingles that are missing granules, the outermost, textured layer that most roof shingles feature. These granules don’t just serve an aesthetic purpose, though. In fact, they provide an extra layer of protection against wind damage and rain damage.

When too many granules are missing, the bare shingle has weakened significantly. Depending on how much weaker they are, we may recommend a few Friendswood roof repairs or a full Friendswood roof replacement.

Notice If Portions Of Your Roof Seem To Sag Or Dip

If your roof is sagging anywhere, then it means that it has been weakened by many of the aforementioned factors that cause roof damage. Roof sagging occurs when moisture from past storms gets trapped underneath shingles that have curled or creased due to wind damage, which eventually allows water to soak into the structure.

Amstill Offers One-Day Friendswood Roof Replacement

Even though these are key indicators that a roof replacement is necessary, it’s always best to get a roof inspection first, so please contact us to schedule one. Our Houston roofing company offers free roof inspections so we can assess the level of damage on your roof.

How Katy Roof Replacement Works

Are you planning to get a Katy roof replacement? Now that you’re prepared to make the investment in a new roof that will last for years to come, you may be wondering what the process is actually like. In this article, our Houston roofing experts will explain how we complete Katy roof replacements so you know what to expect and can rest assured that your investment is well worth it.

File A Claim With Your Homeowner’s Insurance

If you need some help paying for your roof replacement, we offer roof financing options, including interest-free options. However, it’s also a good idea to see if your homeowner’s insurance can offer some roof replacement coverage.

Meet With An Insurance Adjuster

Once you file your claim, your insurance provider will send their insurance adjuster to conduct their own inspection. Because our inspections are free, we recommend scheduling a date that allows both our inspector and the adjuster to have a look. This way, our roofing experts will ensure the adjuster doesn’t miss even the subtlest signs of damage that warrant a roof replacement. Because your roof is critical to the safety of your home and your family, we want you to get the best coverage possible.

Replacing Your Katy, Texas Roof

Once you’ve sorted through how you will pay for your roof replacement, it’s time for us to begin our work. To begin, we prep the surrounding area (windows, landscape) with plywood and tarp in order to protect those areas from the inevitable debris that comes with a roof replacement.

Tearing Down Your Current Roofing

We completely strip your roofing down to the decking so that we can work with a blank canvas. Afterward, we will water-proof the deck by laying some 30-pound felt over it. Think of the felt as an extra layer of protection.

Replacing Your Roof Shingles

The next step is to install brand new shingles according to the manufacturer guidelines. We can install the same roof shingles you have now, or we can change your roof shingles to something better suited to your needs. We also install enhanced high profile shingles on top of any ridges. This complements the rest of the roofing, adds some beauty, and provides greater protection.

Getting Vents and Chimney up to Code

While we work on your roof, we’ll check on the integrity of your vents and chimney, replace them, and repaint them to ensure they are up to code.

What To Do Before Getting A Cypress Roof Replacement

Shop Around And Get Multiple Quotes

Before you make a major purchase, it’s imperative that you shop around and do some research. The same applies to your roof. First, see if you can get some recommendations, then, also do your own research on some reputable roofers and gather a few names that way. Make sure they are certified as well. Next, have each of these companies conduct a roof inspection and provide an estimate.

Compare Proposals

Now that you’ve got a few estimates, it’s time to really compare what each roofer has to offer in their roof replacement job. Most roofers offer a unit cost per square foot, which serves as a maximum cost indication in case they find anything odd that needs to be addressed. Proposals should also include labor, materials, any permits (if required), and clearing away debris.

Roof Financing Options Differ Among Roofing Contractors

If you determine that you will need to finance your Cypress roof replacement, see if the roofers you got an estimate from offer different options.
