What will a new roof cost?
Invite Chuy to take a look. There are so many variables that determine the cost. Your quote is free, and you have no obligation at all.
Will it be slate, clay, metal, or asphalt shingles? Does the job require complete removal of the supporting wood/substrate, or can it be re-roofed? Are there skylights, chimneys, ridge vents, attic fans in place or desired? Is it flat or pitched? Is your roof easily accessible or will it require a crane for access?
When is the best time to replace my roof?
There is no official “roofing season” and typically roofers work year-round. Summer and autumn are the busiest times for roofing companies here in Texas. However, it is possible to have your roof replaced in the winter or spring when there is less demand.
Should I replace my roof before I list my home?
A huge portion of a home’s curb appeal is due to the condition and aesthetic of the roof. If you’re selling your home and your roof is in poor condition or in need of major repairs, you may have trouble getting people to bid on your home.
A lot of buyers these days are on a budget and simply don’t want to spend money on major repairs after they just bought a house. By replacing your roof before you sell, you can get ahead of trouble while still recouping most, if not all, of the costs when you sell.
How should I decide which roofing company to choose?
During these crazy times, it seems anyone with a pickup truck and a hammer is a roofer. We all know someone who was ripped off by a traveling “roofing company” who saw the storm coming to Corpus Christi and swooped in to make some quick cash.
- Ask to review the business license & insurance certificate.
- Look at their trucks. If they don’t care for their own property, they won’t care for yours.
- Read Google & Yelp reviews.
- Consider paying with a major credit card. If the roofer doesn’t do what they promised, contact your credit card company to stop payment.
- Get a written proposal that includes;
- Roof type
- Materials to be included in the work (example: underlayment, vents, flashing, etc)
- Tear-off or overlay
- Flashing work (replace or reuse flashings)
- Ventilation work (adding new vents)
- Who is responsible for repairing or replacing landscape or finishes that may get damaged during the course of the work
- Starting and completion dates
- Length of warranty and what is covered

How can I make my roof last longer?
- Don’t power wash your shingles.
The concentrated spray from power washing can loosen the granules, resulting in damage that might not be covered by the warranty. Instead, have a professional use a broom or leaf blower or manually remove any dirt or moss.
- Make sure that your attic is ventilated.
Inadequate ventilation or poorly located vents can lead to condensation on the plywood supporting your roof shingles, which can cause them to rot. A badly placed exhaust fan can do the same. This isn’t something you can easily diagnose yourself. We can check your system and suggest fixes, which can save you money and headaches later on.
- Clean your gutters often
By keeping your gutters clean, you can prevent a buildup of water that can lead to leaks.
- Fortify your roof
Corpus Christi is prone to hurricanes and severe winds. First, our roofers install seal decking with a special sealant. Second, we use shingles that have a larger nailing area to prevent wind uplift, then we lock down the roof’s edges with metal flashing.
