Underlayments are a very important piece of your roof’s foundation because it is in between the shingle and the actual roof deck. Our underlayment is water resistant and should last the lifetime of the roof which prevents water damage. Due to heavy South Texas winds and rain, this piece of the roofings foundation is vital. We use the top brands which have been proven all over South Texas throughout many seasons. Weatherproofing the underlayment is one of the most important aspect of preventing damage and leaks to your roof. Leak barriers and
Replacing the Deck
Decks consist of one of three – this is the first level of protection for your roof.
Tongue and Groove – last very long and is durable. Likely not to have to be replaced unless heavy moisture or leaks have occurred.
Plank Sheathing – used before plywood decking, better to replace plank with plywood or tongue and groove.
Oriented Strand Board or Plywood sheathing – sheets of plywood are placed, OSB is just as durable than plywood and cost less. Replacing these types of materials are best if there is evidence of water damage, cracked, split, or broken, or the plywood has thinned less than ½’ of an inch.
Warranty & Workmanship
Our work is guaranteed for a minimum of 5 years workmanship against leaks and the material is 25 years or 30 years depending on the product purchased. We use Owens Corning warranty for most roofing materials we use. Upgrades to 10 year workmanship can be obtained for a small fee. Inspections should be done twice a year. In Texas, it’s a good time to inspect the roof before the summer season and also before the winter season.
