Do I have a rotting roof?

Roofs can most definitely collect moisture and begin to rot. It can depend on the type of roof, your climate and installation. This is one of the many reasons why roof inspections are imperative.
We live in a humid region. Your roof could be holding moisture. There are ways to make sure your home is properly ventilated. Sometimes homes are not adequately ventilated, and other times there is too much!
You also want to check your radiant barriers. Poor installation can cause too much moisture. Insulation can also be the problem. Wet insulation is never a good thing.
HomeAdvisor suggests “If you are experiencing moisture accumulation in your attic that has caused roof rot or other moisture associated problems, it’s important that you talk to a home inspector, roofing contractor, or general contractor, in order to assess damage, identify the source of your problem, and get everything back up to code. If your roof has experienced significant rot you may be in for some major repairs, including repairing or replacing the roof trusses, decking, and roofing material. Since it’s unlikely your radiant barriers caused your problem, this is a good time to address the source of your moisture problem as well (most likely poor ventilation). Installing gable vents, ridge vents, soffit vents, and attic fans are all effective strategies in eliminating poor attic ventilation. Remember, your roof is your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Anything short of a roof in excellent condition isn’t worth risking in the long run.”

Haag Certified Roofing Inspectors in the DFW

We are proud to announce that Ward Vestal and David Longbine are now Haag Certified Roofing Inspectors! In the roofing and insurance industries, the phrase “Haag Certified” carries a lot of weight. It indicates that we can effectively and efficiently inspect and assess damage. Our report conclusions have a deeper level of credibility because other inspectors may lack the skills and knowledge we’ve gained by passing courses developed and taught by practicing forensic engineers.

New Year, New Roof

Before and after pictures of a roof where we upgraded the shingles to GAF Timberline HD with a Lifetime Warranty in Charcoal color. We also upgraded the ventilation to the GAF Cobra 3 Ridge Vent. Also unlike the last installer we were able to get the shingles to line up parallel to the ridge.

You can personalize your roof with shingle style and color. The first step is a free roof inspection. After that a project manager will help you design a roof that will be right for you!
