This homeowner called us to replace his roof in Friendswood, and we agreed to a contract. Here are the before and after pictures of this roof replacement in Friendswood, TX.
This beautiful Manvel home was in need of a new roof due to years of sun, wind, rain and hail beating down on it. After being shown the different types of roofing systems that can be installed on their roof, the homeowner decided to go with this gorgeous GAF Timberline HD roofing system in Pewter Gray.
To further serve curb appeal, the owner also upgraded to GAF Timbertex which is a high-profile ridge cap that makes the roof stand out more than any roof around.
This job in particular required extra care of the landscape around due to the native texas wildflowers that were planted around the property. We at Ernie Smith and Son's take pride in taking the extra precaution to cover and avoid damaging the landscape. This roof was completed in one day due to the efficient management of the project and our installer's great work.
When a roof gets old and worn due to the harsh weather Texas comes with, the roof is one of the first items to take effect. Colors become dull, algae forms and granules fall. This homeowner gave Ernie Smith & Son's a call to get one of our Service Reps out there and inspect her roof. Our Service Rep found hail and wind damaged and got her roof paid for through insurance.
Then came the hardest part; picking out the colors. The homeowner decided to go with a GAF Timberline HD system in Barkwood that made her roof pop out and serve better curb appeal. The pictures show the big difference when a roof gets replaced.

To further serve curb appeal, the homeowner upgraded to the Timbertex High Profile Ridge Cap. This home is the one that stands out.

Asphalt shingles are the most common and popular residential roofing material, as they offer excellent versatility, durability, and affordability. Modern asphalt shingles are a composite material that includes a fiberglass reinforcement to prevent tearing. Asphalt shingles are offered in three tab and architectural styles, each of which has some advantages:
As an added benefit, roof repair can be handled relatively easily with asphalt shingles. The roofing pros at Ernie Smith & Sons Roofing can help you decide what type of asphalt shingles are the best fit for your home depending on your needs and budget.
The gold standard. Slate roofing is the best roofing material available, but installation is pricey.
When it comes to roofing materials, nothing beats slate. Slate shingles are slivers of rock that are cut in the shape of shingles and installed as the roofing material. Slate is a versatile material that has unmatched appearance and durability, making it a fantastic choice for any home.
However, slate roofs are very expensive and very heavy, sometimes requiring additional work to the structure before installation. Slate can be difficult to work with as well, meaning an experienced and skilled contractor is a necessity. If you're interested in slate roofing, the experts at Ernie Smith & Sons Roofing can help you find the best solution and give you a high quality installation.
