Roofing in Houston

Roofs come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and styles, but it is one universally common aspect of most buildings and/or structures. Roofing as a job is one of the more difficult and more dangerous professions when it comes to the world of home building. The cost of replacing a roof can vary greatly depending on where you live and the materials you wish you use as well as the size of course. Research has shown that an average cost for a standard teardown and replacement with basic materials ranges from $4500 to $12,000. (However costs can easily soar as high as $100k!) The pitch of a roof also plays a role in the cost and process of replacement. Standard roofs have a 7:12 pitch meaning that for every foot the roof rises 7inches. If a roof has a greater pitch than that, it may require special safety equipment to protect the installers. While most people do not have a say in the pitch of their roof, it is something to consider of you are building your home and plan to have it for a long time. The typical materials used on most roofs are Asphalt, Slate, Tile and Metal. metal and slate roofs have been proven to last longer than asphalt shingle roofs (25 years more than the average 25 of asphalt!) Costs for each material vary equally greatly with asphalt shingles coming in around $300*, slate @ $1000-4000*, tile @ $800-4000*, and metal for $500-2000* -- *prices based on 100 square feet of material. Roofers should be willing to pull the necessary permits for your job, understand in detail the required codes, and be willing to give a detailed estimate. A good guarantee or warranty for a roof replacement or repair should be at minimum 5 years and more preferably 10 years (on workmanship) protecting you against leaks. (Be careful of companies that offer a greater guarantee than 20years because it may require you to buy expensive materials or installation procedures to justify such a lofty guarantee.
