If you need roof repairs or are thinking about a complete roof replacement in Frisco or Denton, it’s normal to have a lot of questions – and we can tell you that the best way to get answers is to schedule a free roof inspection with a residential roofing company. Your inspector will be able to answer questions about your roof, identify problem areas that you need to repair, and tell you how much repairs or replacement will cost.
But if you have questions right now, here’s what you need to know.
Some of the most common questions we answer are:
The best way to tell if your roof can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced is by having it inspected by a professional. Sometimes roof damage is small and just needs a quick fix, but in other cases, it’s significant enough to warrant a roof replacement.
Wind and hail storms can cause severe damage, lifting and cracking shingles. In some cases, when shingle seals are broken, your roof’s underlayment may be exposed – and that puts you at risk for serious roof leaks.
Water damage never resolves itself. In fact, a small leak can quickly become a big leak – but even if it stays the same size until you have it repaired, it can do tremendous amounts of damage. Even a tiny leak in your roof can cause mold and mildew growth, wood rot and eventual roof failure.
Every roof is different, and how much it costs to repair hinges on several factors, including the extent of the damage. The best way to find out how much your repairs will cost is to get a free roof inspection. In many (but not all) cases, roof repair is covered by homeowner’s insurance.
A complete roof replacement doesn’t have a set cost because there are so many variables. The size of your roof and the materials you choose will determine how much a replacement costs. For example, asphalt shingles are significantly cheaper than stone tiles are – and if you’re installing them on an 8,000-square-foot home, the cost is higher than it would be if you were installing them on a smaller home.

We’ll send an experienced professional to your home to survey the damage and let you know what repairs it needs.
If you’re like most people, you don’t really think about roofing companies much – but there are five things that can happen to your roof that may make you want to put us on speed-dial. Here’s what you need to know.
If you notice any of these issues, call a roofing company immediately:
Shingles are your roof’s outermost layer of protection. They block harmful UV rays from damaging the underlayment and keep water moving off your roof so it doesn’t seep into your home. If you notice missing, cracked or otherwise damaged shingles, you need to call a roofing company right away for a free roof inspection.
Leaks often start small – so small that you might not even notice they’re there. Unfortunately, even small leaks can cause substantial (and expensive) damage; it could even lead to you needing a complete roof replacement. As soon as you notice water coming into your home, call a roofing company for help. We may be able to head off the problem before it spirals out of control.
Tree limbs that fall on your roof can jab holes in your shingles, exposing the felt underlayment and even the solid decking beneath. Your home depends on each layer of protection that your roof provides, so if a limb has blown onto your roof during a storm or has fallen for another reason, you need a professional roofing company to come check it out.
When mold starts growing in your attic, it’s a sure sign you have a moisture problem. Even if you don’t notice mold but can tell that your attic is really humid, you’ll need to have a roofing company come check out your roof ventilation system. Moisture building up in your attic can spell big trouble – and eventually, it’ll lead to your roof rotting from the inside out.
Ice dams can cause significant damage to your home. In layman’s terms, an ice dam is a wall of ice that forms at the edge of your roof – and it acts like any dam would, blocking melting water from running off the roof and to the ground. When that happens, water will seep into your home. Poor roof ventilation is one of the most common causes for ice dams, and it’s something you need to address with a roofing company right away.
If you’ve noticed any of these issues – or if there’s something else wrong with your roof, we may be able to help you.
