How do I know when my current roof needs to be replaced?
Different roofs deteriorate at different rates. Some of the things to consider are the age of the roof, the materials used, and the amount of inclement weather the roof has been exposed to. If you see any of the following signs, it is time to consider replacing your roof:

  • Leaks in numerous places
  • Continuous leaks, even with repairs
  • Problems return soon after repairs
  • Repairs do not fix the problem

If you’ve been hit by a storm you should also look for other roofing being done in your neighborhood. You and your neighbors all got hit by the same weather so you may have hidden damage that can only be detected by a qualified inspection. If any of this applies to you, call Tarrant Country Roofing and we’ll schedule a FREE inspection to see if your roof needs repair or replacement.

How do I select a roofing contractor?
The roof you install is only as good as the roofing contractor who installs it. Skilled workers will determine the outcome of a roof replacement project. So choosing a qualified roofing contractor is essential to having a healthy roof that lasts a long time. Our roofers are some of the best in the industry with many years of experience installing multiple kinds of roofing systems.

Some of the best things you can do to verify the quality of work a roofing company does is to ask for current references and check them out with the Better Business Bureau. Since it is possible for any roof to have a problem, it is important to know how the contractor deals with past clients. A good contractor makes a commitment to you and the work they’ve done for you.

You should also be sure your roofing contractor carries the appropriate amount of insurance in case of emergency, and acquires all of the appropriate permits. All roofing companies are required to do this, but unfortunately for their customers, not everyone does. Tarrant County Roofing goes above and beyond on this point by carrying double the average insurance required by law.

How much roof maintenance is needed after installation?
Since there are so many different types of roofing and materials there’s no simple answer.
Routine maintenance can be anything from keeping your drains and gutters clean to extensive work. Maintaining your roof is your responsibility, so whichever material you choose; make sure that you will be able to fulfill its maintenance needs. This is something you should discuss with your roofing contractor before deciding on the type of materials you should use.
How much does a new roof cost?
Because every home is different there’s no way to give a flat price on replacing your roof. When you’re given an estimate you should make sure it addresses the following factors:

  • The square footage of your roof
  • The roofing material you choose
  • Any permits needed
  • The amount of labor needed to get the job done right

How long does it take to replace a roof?
Replacing a roof is a big job, and while we can’t promise it for every roof replacement, we strive to use enough men to accomplish all the work on residential jobs in one day. We know all the activity is inconvenient so we try to make it as quick and painless as possible.
How should I prepare for the installation of my new roof?
There are a few things you should do before the roofing installation process begins. Since hammering can cause vibrations inside your home, take loose items off of your walls and shelves. You should also make sure your driveway and surrounding area is clear so the workers have space to move materials directly to your roof. It is a good idea to park on the side of the road instead of your driveway.

Make sure you can provide electrical power outside.

If you have any questions, just give us a call at 817-583-3691.

How long will my roof last?
Roofing, like any other material, will deteriorate over time. A new roof can last anywhere from 10 to 40 years, although 20-30 years is the average. You can lengthen the life of your roof by choosing the right contractor, such as Tarrant County Roofing, for the original installation and keeping up with any maintenance requirements.
When is the best time of year to install a roof?
The best condition for installing a roof is when the temperature is above freezing and there is minimal chance of rain.

Since you cannot predict bad weather, always know that installation delays may occur. These delays are to protect your exposed roof from being damaged by rain or other inclement weather.
