Pre-inspection, we always take a front picture of the home, for documentation.
This pipe flashing was cracked, and is leaking now, causing deterioration to the plywood.
This roof is just one layer, but you'd be surprised how often we find a second layer of shingles. Some people actually still put new roofs right down on top of one ones!
This tool can be useful to determine how thick the shingle is, to know which shingle to use on the new installation.
Once this has been documented, all that's left to do is start chalking the marks on the roof, to make sure the damage affected the shingles, as well. This is a sure sign that there is hail damage on the roof.
The clouds keep rolling, so our crew is moving quickly to get the roof covered, or "dried-in," as we say.
We're still up there, two stories up, doing our job. Thunderstorms can pop up in the middle of the day. It's important to be prepared!
Ok, so it's not hair, but it's the top of the house, isn't it? The point remains - it's a pretty roof!
It's easy to think "how am I going to verify that the roofers are doing a good job?" if you don't know about roofing. It's easy when you pick the right company from the very beginning. We're here to make the process go smoothly for you. We couldn't do that if we weren't always making sure our roofs are installed perfectly.
This family's roof in Sugar Land, TX was leaking when our service representative Matt Dravis came to inspect their house. While on the two-story steep roof, hail damage was discovered to the shingles on the roof. With the help of his special "roofing shoes," Matt was able to climb the roof over, and document the damage. When he got off the roof, he spoke with the homeowner, who decided to call their insurance carrier with Matt right there. Together, after they filled out our Service Agreement, they filed a claim and had an adjuster appointment. When the time came, Matt Dravis got on the roof with the insurance adjuster, and the roof was paid for. The homeowner was going to spend money to fix the roof leak, but their roof repair money was spent instead on their deductible, and they got a brand new roof! Check out these pictures of the roof in progress.
