We cant stress enough the serious need for Dallas to realize the money they are losing each year in the residential roofing industry. With electric prices going through the roof ? Isnt it time to just let the heat out?

 

VENT YOUR HOME::

 

Since 1984 when I did my first roof. I've personally never installed a roof with out full ridge vents (FYI:webmaster is a roofer). The standards for ventilation in Dallas is inadequate and has been overseen for many years. In fact just this year with the recent storms of April 08. Just about every roofer in Dallas finally started installing ridge vents.

 

ROOFING NOTE:

The reason the light to moderate winds are able to blow off your shingles is simple. Your roof has basically dried up. The tar that seals the shingles together, the oils, the heat has dried these components up in the shingle there for they no longer stay sealed together. The heat in the attic also tends to force nails and staples back up through the roof. Lifting the tab or shingle slightly enough for the light winds to pull and tug on the shingle. Once a 40 plus mile an hr wind arrives the shingles will start to pull even more on the nails. Depending on the nailing standards by the previous roofer and or methods, determines how soon and how much of the roof will blow away

 

These repairs are standards for poor quality new construction installations here in the DFW area. The roofers are using air tools in 100 % degree weather there for over shooting the nail through the shingle.  Now you have some missing shingles on your roof. Its best to hand nail your roof!

 

Air tools took over the roofing industry back in the early 80s with staple guns first being used widely through out the USA. The standard concept was a great ideal if the roofers were to actually follow the manufactures specs for stapling the shingles. The staple was supposed to be straight across the shingle right below the tar line holding 1 1/8th inch width vs the 1/4" inch head of a standard roofing nail. However with poor quality and care came the roofers who didn't follow these standards and twisted the the staple gun every which way but straight across the shingle. Leaving just pins holding down the shingle. These roof tend to blow away much easier as if we would think it wouldn't?

 

A top quality roofer would prefer to use hand nails to insure proper placement of each roof nail.

 

 

We have over 24  years of experience installing shingles and re roofing of fine homes.  We provide general roofing services from the smaller homes to the larger complexes. Its all about the supervision and personal roofing standards! You will not find a higher standard for such a common trade as what we personally carry. Its your home. Its your roof. 

 

When your entire investment is protected by this simple common trade? Isn't it time to start doing things right? Don't settle for the same old roofing standards adapted into Dallas so many years ago. Let us show you there is a better way to roof your home!
