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
