Roofing maintenance

Even though most roofing materials are durable, over time water, chemicals and light begin to deteriorate many composites. Depending on the materials used on the roof, water can begin to pool or seep into cracks leading to leaks. If they aren’t caught in time, these leaks can damage insulation and decking that holds the rest of the roof together.

With regular inspections, trained roofing contractors can spot trouble before it becomes a problem. Regular maintenance such as checking for any cracks, inspecting the seals on duct work and checking for storm damage can save you a lot of future headaches. If problems are found, a repair can be done before the roof begins to leak.

But inspections and maintenance must be done on a regular basis. Changes in the roofing material often show gradually and some issues can’t be spotted unless conditions are right. Lone Star Roofing can schedule regular maintenance checks on your roof and advise you on how to extend it’s life.

Roof coating systems

Roof coatings are materials that are placed over an existing roof that can help extend its life. Most roof coating systems perform more than one function. First, they seal any leaks. Because the coating is seamless, it means that water isn’t able to penetrate. Secondly, roof coating systems protect the roof from further damage. Some roof coatings such as reflective aluminum and white roofs help reflect sunlight and keep your building cooler. Other roof coatings such as ceramic can add strength and durability to thin roofing materials such as single ply. Roof coatings will deteriorate over time; however, they can be reapplied.

Roof coatings need to be matched with the type of roof already installed. Professional roofing contractors have who training and experience will know what products to use on your roof. Some coating systems will not work well with some materials so caution is always needed.

Depending on the type of roof coating it can be sprayed or even painted on. Roof coatings are more than just paint. They are specifically formulated compounds that provide various functions on a roof.

Emergency services

It would be easier if emergencies such as storms, high winds and torrential rains could be scheduled around our busy lives. However, we know that sometimes the unexpected happens. Any time an emergency repair is needed, call Lone Star Roofing immediately to initiate your roof repair. For emergency services we are available 24 hours a day.

One of the most devastating emergencies are storms. High winds can tear off sheet metal and improperly anchored single ply systems. Heavy rains can cause roofing materials to become saturated. Hail and debris can tear materials allowing water to leak into the building. Even snow poses a problem to industrial roofs. The weight of heavy snow and ice can cause structural damage.

Once you call Lone Star Roofing we will inspect the damage and work with you and your insurance company to repair the damage. We will also inspect the rest of your roof to see if any other potential issues could arise.

Free consultations

We don’t want you to feel pressured about your roof even though it is important to keep it in good working order. That’s why Lone Star Roofing offers a free no strings attached consultation. Our inspector will examine your roof and look for areas that are in need of repairs, maintenance and other potential issues. We can then offer you options based on your needs.

We won’t offer you a “special of the month.”  Instead, we will listen to your concerns, budget and future plans and help you decide what option will be best for your situation.

Roofing repair

Roofing repairs can be either easy or difficult. Depending on the roof type and materials used, a repair could take a few hours or a few weeks.

Many leaks happen because the material begins to deteriorate over time, roofing material was improperly installed or the roof was damaged. Catching a leak early is the best way to keep your building dry. Although regular maintenance can catch many issues, some may appear suddenly especially after heavy storms.

If you are looking for roofing contractors for repairs, keep Lone Star Roofing in mind. We are the roofing specialists in Dallas and Austin and can repair many different roof types.

Roof installation

Even if a roof is properly maintained, it will need to be replaced at some point.

There are several reasons to install a new roof. Sometimes the roofing materials are unable to be repaired or sealed because of deterioration or age. Other clients install a new roof so that they can qualify for Energy Star tax credits and potentially save money over time with a heat reflective white roof.

Lone Star Roofing works directly with many of the top roofing material manufacturers to provide our clients with the highest quality products and the lowest possible price. When you hire us, we develop an individual plan so that the work can be done quickly and efficiently. This leads us to spending less time on your roof.

We are also local and that means we’ve seen how the Texas weather can affect different kinds of roofing materials. We won’t advise using a product that doesn’t work well in the hot summer months such as the traditional rubber roof. Instead, we can advise our clients on products that can save them money over time and immediate tax credits.
