Ensuring you have the right equipment for scaling the roof is mandatory to a safe inspection.

The average temperature on an asphalt roof can be greater than 135 degrees Fahrenheit. You can imagine our team has to get acclimatized to this type of heat. Along with that, frequent breaks and much water is required. There's not much more that a roofer in Katy, TX wants than a bottle of cold Gatorade!

What happens if a rain cloud were to appear right now? Doesn't that sound pretty scary? When you're using some contractors, it can be a very scary thing indeed. First, we don't work on a "40% chance of rain" day. We'll wait til the next day. In addition to this, we always have a roll of "poly" or plastic in every truck, and the crew is required to keep one in their trucks as well. If a rain cloud appears, that plastic will be up before the rain hits, and your home will stay dry.
This shed has a "flat" roof, or more professionally dubbed a "low-slope" roof. (We do these, too!)
This low slope roof was installed according to Texas Department of Insurance's coastal guidelines, even though roofs in Katy, TX aren't required to match that code. We install EVERY roof according to TDI's requirements, so we'll never have a roof blow off in high wind!
Our service representative, Matt Dravis, got these clients the roof they deserved. The customers weren't expecting it at all! Matt told them about the storm damage on the roofs in Katy, TX, and how they could have roof damage themselves. Matt inspected the roof, and recommended the homeowner call their insurance carrier. The album shows the results!
