Garland Roofing Guide

Reliability is pretty much everything in a fence contractor. We're talking about the wooden privacy fence for your house. I don't know if you've shopped around for a good wood privacy fence lately, but when my friends did, we experienced these frustrating results:

  • they took 1-3 weeks to even come out and measure and quote the job
  • they were backup a couple months and could not start the job
  • they just plain were unprofessional and did not followup with communications
    (Yikes, this is lower than no customer support)
  • the prices were so all over the place for the same materials and labor that some of these quotes (either ultra high or super low) just HAD to be fishy. Were they actually "apples-to-apples" quotes in reality of was someone either (a) cutting corners or (b) jacking up the cost and trying to take advantage...
  • is the fence contractor just cherry picking their projects and my fence quote is not even on their radar?

I call this ABUSE by a contractor, not service! But it does not have to be that way. You deserve to get responded to with a fair price! In the Dallas and North Dallas (Frisco, Plano, Allen, Richardson) service areas, you want straight-shooting and no-nonsense fence contractors that are not disrespecting or playing games with their customers/prospects.

When the fence around your yard is done right, it can be a source of beauty in addition to providing security and privacy.

And now comes the good news. We've found to be just that - both fair and responsive. And (like the title suggests), RELIABLE as well. It should be a given that the fence is installed right with long-term reliability in mind. This means many things, that other guys try to cut corners on such as:

  • are the fence posts metal so they don't rot out like wooden ones do?
  • are the fence posts installed deep enough to be sturdy and not start leaning, or get blown over by high winds?
  • did they suggest to me using "pre-treated" fence pickets that stand up to the North Dallas weather conditions?
  • are they obsessive about using actual levels so that my fence is not a bit "wonky"and off kilter?
  • are they using cheap nails and not enough of them to even hold the pickets securely.
  • did they suggest installing a kickboard? (see more on that here

The fact is that it is pretty easy to build a fence that looks nice... for the first 6 months. But then the scammer's fence starts FALLING APART, coming loose, letting the dog escape, and sagging...

A fence done right does not need being re-built or repaired for years. Sure, it might need re-staining in a couple years, but it is holding together and not leaning or rotting. That means value. That means a fence installed that cares about customer service. That SHOULD be a given, but unfortunatly, it is no longer a given intoday's "hit-and-run", "wham bam" contractor culture.

Simply avoid the grief and the drama by choosing a reliable and reputable fence contractor. It is so worth it. All the more reason to go to and fill out the "request a quote" form on the home page. Expect a fair price, for quality work - you'll thank me later!

Garland Roof Leak Repair

Posted by DFW Home Service - Roofing, Fencing |

Whether from sheer age or from our Texas thunderstorms, sooner or later your roof is likely to develop a leak. As a leading Garland roofing contractor, we help our neighbors keep their roofs free from leaks.

When a Garland roof leak starts to rot your roof's decking, Call 877-772-7581
Roof leaks usually occur from several specific areas:
valleys: where water accumulates most when it rains
seams and seals: around chimneys, vents, skylights and such
edges and soffit: where your roof joins to your house

We've also seen many cases where roof leaks are caused by improperly installed attic ventilation (whirley bird vents, attic vents, gable vents, ridgeline vents, and more modern vents too).

Bottom line: if you have a leak you need to get it repaired immediately. There may be more damage being done than you know. And by the time it get's to where you notice it on the inside of your home, damage can be done to the structure of your house.

So call our local Garland roofing contractors at 877-772-7581.

Garland Roofing - Contractor Service Company

Posted by DFW Home Service - Roofing, Fencing |

When it comes to your home's roof, you want to ensure it is properly protecting your house. Our Garland roofing contractors are local to North Dallas, quick to respond to repair and roof replacement needs.

In this part of Dallas we have both very dry and hot weather that can bake and deteriorate the shingles on your roof. And this weather is punctuated by heavy rainstorms that can dump a lot of water, and even hail, in a brief period of time. This extreme kind of weather makes it especially important to care for your whole home by caring for your house' roof. If you need Garland roofing service, simply call 877-772-7581.

Let me give you 3 quick Garland Roofing specifics:

TAR PAPER: the tar paper under your shingles is designed to help waterproof your roof, if water gets through your shingles, this is at least SOME barrier (a thin and flimsy barrier) to keep it from getting through your roof's decking. Your tar paper is not perfect and it is filled with holes - even when installed correctly - hole from the nails, nailing it to your decking, as well as holes from the shingles above it If your shingles are doing their job right, you won't need to rely on the tar paper to fully protect your home from moisture and rain.

The problem: the tar (aka asphalt and thick crude oil) can dry out and get brittle from the very Hot Texas Sun. The tar paper then breaks and cracks, letting moisture through to your home. All in all, what this means to you as a homeowner, is that the reality is that your tar paper tends to deteriorate faster in the Dallas heat, not lasting as long as the manufacturer's warranty claims it will last.

SHINGLES: the hot Summer Garland heat and sun also dries and deteriorates all kinds of shingles, making them brittle, cracking, falling apart and letting water into your house over time. The cycles of moisture alternating with intense heat makes this process worse - happening faster, than in milder climates. Just like your tar paper, the heat will deteriorate your asphalt-and-fiberblass shingles (the main kind used in Texas), drying them out (just like it deteriorates and cracks your skin after decades in the sun, removing your oils)

CAULK: again, the weather is the enemy of your roof and that includes the sealants and caulking. The heat/moisture cycles cause the caulk to expand and contract to a high degree. As your roofing caulking dries out, it get more brittle. But to make matters worse, because it is also expanding and contracting due to temperature changes, as it becomes brittle and stiff, cracks DO appear.

This is the exact reason why roofing leaks often appear around joints in the roof -- where your chimney connects, or where a vent or skylight attaches to your roof. Knowing this, we OVER-caulk and use the highest-quality sealants. Knowing every caulk and seal will deteriorate over time, we want to give you the longest possible maintenance-free enjoyment of your home's roof.

Let us treat your roof right. Whether you need a roof leak repairs or need your roof replaced from age or hail damage, trust us as your local advocate and put us on your roof.

Lakewood Roofing Contractor in Dallas - Repair or Replace
We're a big fan of the roofing contractors at Lakewood Residential Roofing. The neighborhood of Lakewood is in Dallas near White Rock Lake.

While roofing as a whole has not changed much, one of the innovative roofing developments in the last few years has been the "ridge vent." Essentially, a ridge vent is a low-profile vent at the very top - the ridge - of your home's roof. Why is this a popular option?

First, it is visually unobtrusive. That means no whirlybird sticking up on your roof. It only sticks up a could inches and means a clean-looking roof.

Second, it is effective and efficient. This is because heat rises. So the ridge vent is exactly where your roof get's the hottest - right at the top. So heat naturally rises to the ridge of your roof, and when it does, the vent is right there to let it out.

Third, there are no moving parts to a ridge vent. The ridge vents we install at Lakewood Residential Roofing have nothing to break or wear out (unless your roof get's hit by a truck!). It is a "passive" vent system. Since the vent it at the highest point on your roof (the ridge), it is where it will natually catch the most wind. So the ridge vent allows our windy Dallas Lakewood area to put that wind to work -- cooling your attic and giving your insulation less work to do.

So whether you need a roofing repair, storm damage repair or to replace your roof in the Lakewood Dallas area, we are there for you at
