Most roofs in the Port Aransas, Texas area aren't vented properly, raising A/C costs, reducing the life of the roof, and encouraging growth of mold/mildew. The 2015 International Residential Code requires 1 foot of roof venting per 150 square feet of attic floor area. Most homes do not meet this criteria.

Frisco, Texas has been seeing a lot of this lately! Seconds are shingles rejected by the manufacturer's quality control. They are not warrantied by the manufacturer and often fail a home inspection.

Norman has seen it's fair share of hail! But, roof damage is hard to spot, as it typically just leaves a bruise. But, like an apple, it deteriorates over time. It's a matter of when the roof leaks, not if. Waiting to address the issue can cause an issue with mold and even mean your insurance policy won't cover your claim.

Good contractors, in Maud or anywhere, will identify things to supplement when the adjuster is on-site. This gives the customer the option to choose what to do about it, such as doing the work themselves or deciding not to fix it (e.g., something cosmetic). If the supplement is filed after the adjuster visits the property, the customer must file an invoice from a contractor in order to receive those funds, and does not have the option of doing the work themselves or leaving it undone.

Re-using roof accessories generally makes a roof more susceptible to leaks in the future. It's not a good idea to re-use roof vents or the flashing/boots surrounding plumbing and furnace vents. Antennas and satellite dishes can be reset without problems, as long as the work is done by a qualified professional.
