Your Alamo Ranch Roofing Contractor
High winds blow through Alamo Ranch at least once a year. Finding and trusting a roofing contractor in Alamo Ranch sometimes comes down to trust and the bottom line, the price.
When looking for a roofer in your area, here’s a few things we recommend.
- Make sure they’re at least registered with the City of San Antonio
- Have a google listing to be able to read reviews and pictures of their work.
- Make sure they do roof repair work on a regular, this verifies it’s a specialty.
- Try and hire a roofing company not a general contractor or handyman.
- Finally, get a written estimate with a warranty. If it’s not in writing, it doesn’t exist. Don’t do oral agreements.
What’s A Roof Repair Cost?
Roof repairs cost between $200 – $400, but it really depends on the situation. Some repairs are simple and fast, others can be complex and too far gone where it could cost close to $1,000 or more. Going back to the point mentioned above about trust, when you’re spending hundreds on a repair, make sure it’s going to be done right, the first time. Sure wouldn’t want to hire a fly-by-night and have to spend more to get it repaired, again.
True story, Elena, was a victim of an 80 mph tornadic wind storm that smashed Alamo Ranch and the Far West Side. She found Rox Roofing online and set an appointment. She works in Austin and couldn’t meet us on site. Her main concern was the hurricane arriving from the coast. We were able to tarp the open roof in time, gave her a written estimate and within a couple days, had the roof repaired and secured. Because of our service, she didn’t have to be home at the time of repairs. We didn’t make contact, we actually never met face to face. Everything was communicated through email and text messages. The final invoice was paid online.
Alamo Ranch Roofing Contractor
If you own a house that’s fifteen (15) years or older and have 3 tab builder grade shingles installed, you’re probably seeing shingles blow off everytime the sky sneezes.
3 tab shingles are notoriously installed all over the Far West Side of Antonio and Alamo Ranch is crawling with them. A good 3 tab brand shingle has a wind rating of 65 mph with a manufacture wind warranty. Most are rated for 25 years. Most builder grade 3 tab shingles last about 10-15 years even though they’re “rated for 25 years”
If you’re dishing out cash for repairs year after year, you may want to consider replacing your roof. Upgrading to a laminated architectural shingle might be a great option. Most reputable shingle brands have a line that warrants roofs for 40+ years and carry a wind rating of 130 mph, like the Owens Corning Duration shingle. We always recommend doing roof repairs before replacing.
