Homes in Spring TX range in age from the mid 60's to new site built homes in 2016.  One thing they have in common is that they all have roofs.  What is unfortunate is that a new roof can leak just like an older roof system.  Our Spring TX roof repair experts can help your repair your roof leak with just a simple phone call.  To schedule a free roof repair quote in Spring, TX, call us today at 832-537-2317.

So what exactly causes a roof to leak?  Let's go over the top three reasons for our roof repair calls in Spring TX.  Roofs are made up of a system to shed exterior water and if any of these components fail, a roof repair is needed.  When we have a roof repair request, one of the first things we look at is the roof installation pattern.  Roof shingles are designed by the manufacturer to be installed using a unique pattern that allows them to shed rain and keep it out of the house.  Some roof repair requests are installation issues, but normally these are noticed immediately after a new roof replacement.


The second reason for roof repair calls in Spring are associated with the accessories on the roof.  Mainly the pipe boots that are used by untrained roofing contractors offering cheap roofs but also the ones used by many new home builders who with to cut corners on roofs.  For many years, homes had roofing with lead pipe boots.  Not only are these roof accessories more expensive due to the material, but also not commonly sold at your regular big box stores.  They are a type of specialty product offered thru roofing contractor vendors.  What has become a less expensive alternative is to use plastic pipe boots.  These boots have a rubber ring which dries out from the sun's UV rays and cracks.  Cracks on a roof almost always mean roof leaks.   Replacing these plastic pipe boots multiple times on a roof is not uncommon.  Failure usually occurs 7-10 years down the road, which is usually long after most roofing contractors warranty period has run out.

The third roof repair cause we experience in Spring TX is roof flashing issues. Roof flashing can either fail from wind damage, rodents, or even being non existent.  Roof flashing is important in any roof system to help integrate the roof with other components of the home or building.  Some roof repairs in Spring TX were a direct cause of the roofing contractors having not installed flashing details and within time, water found  its way inside the home.

Roofing Spring TX
When hiring reputable roofers, do your homework – we cannot stress the importance of this enough. Without careful research, you could be digging your own grave! All reliable roofing companies will have the following things in common:
Good workmanship warranty: Don’t take the word of a verbal warranty. Reliable roofing companies will give you an official warranty that falls in the three- to five-year range. Don’t trust unusually high warranties (25 years or more) or warranties that make absurd guarantees. There is usually no absolute guarantee in the roofing industry!
Physical address: We hate to admit this, but there are roofing scams out there. Some roofing contractors conduct business out of a truck, and they will not be able to provide trustworthy insurance, warranties or references.
Satisfactory answers: Don’t be afraid to ask questions; in fact, we encourage it. The more questions the better! Will the roofers come out for follow-up visits to make sure everything is working? How do they handle complaints? What is the most common roof repair from weather damage? By asking questions you can better assess the company and see how experienced they seem, which brings us to our next point.
Experience: Reputable roofers will generally have a lot of experience (10, 20, 30 years). As the old saying goes, practice makes perfect. Well, the longer a roofing company has been in business, the better they have honed the necessary skills and perfected their practice (including customer service as well as physical labor!)
Official agreement: As mentioned above, you need an agreement on paper. If you don’t have a formal proposal, the company is not required to actually provide the services or do what they say they are going to do. Make it official!

Roof Repair - Flashing

IF YOU HAVE MOLD OR DARK AREAS ON YOUR BRICK OR SIDING, YOU PROBABLY HAVE FLASHING ISSUES WHERE MOISTURE IS ENTERING AND STAYING IN YOUR HOME CAUSING MILDEW.
Some roofs stop at a vertical wall.  A metal flashing must be in place to direct water streaming down the wall away from the stopping point of the shingles. A outdated practice is to install a flashing detail known as "j" flashing.  This is a flashing material in the shape of an "L" with a curl at the end to catch any water that makes it past the shingles.  Where this flashing fails is that the weight of the shingles crush the water catch leaving the sub roof exposed to moisture intrusion.  A more secure and approved method is to replace the J flashing with what is known as step flashing.  This involves starting a the base of the roof where a kick out piece is installed to divert water away from the building.  Then a shingle is installed with a step flashing over it.  This is repeated until you reach the top of the valley.  The purpose is to make the water hit the top shingle, trickle down to the step flashing under it, down to the next shingle, and repeats this process until it reaches the end.  Never getting a chance to enter the building.  85% of roof repair we do involves replacing the outdated j flashing with approved step flashing.

10 roof leak locations PART (1 of 3)


Roof leaks are a nuisance for many homeowners.  They can be difficult to diagnose as different weather conditions will produce leaks in different locations.  The vast majority of roof coverings operate using the principal of gravity.  This can be a big help in locating a leak source.  However, horizontal roof boards can trick you.  A leak may actually be eight to 10 feet sideways from where you see the wet ceiling or spot in the attic.
Finding the source of some leaks is easy.  Others will require detective work and possibly a garden hose and an inside spotter.  If you don't feel comfortable on a roof, you will have to find a roofer to assist you.
THE FIELD OF SHINGLES
if your roof is older, it is possible that the leak is within the roof field.  This means the expanse of shingles, slate, shakes, whatever if your roof is asphalt, then you can walk around with ease.  Other materials such as slate, concrete tile or clay tile many not be so forgiving.  You can crack roofing if you walk on it, so be careful.  With regular shingles, look at the tops of the vertical knockouts.  Look for missing colored granules.  Look for cracks.  Possibly a nail has backed itself out of the roof sheathing.  Simply take your time and hunt.
