“My roof was replaced not too long ago, why is it falling apart?”

Even if you had your roof replaced in the last few years, there are many reasons your roof could be falling apart nonetheless. One of the most common causes of premature roof degradation is improper installation of your roofing system. Unfortunately, many contractors will cut corners during the installation or roof replacement process to save themselves time and money.

Roofing manufacturers set guidelines for the tools that should be used during each step of installation of their materials. This includes specifications like nail length, type, and quantity per-material-unit, for example. A lot of other contractors will use staples or nails that are too short while installing components of your new roof because it’s cheaper and takes less time. This not only voids the manufacturer’s warranty on your roof, but will inevitably will lead to premature aging of your entire roofing system.

This demonstrates why it is so important to hire a roofing contractor who cares more about providing robust, high-quality roof replacements than they do about expediency.

At JNC Roofing, we take pride in our commitment to excellent craftsmanship and customer service. Our in-house crews are trained to strictly abide by the manufacturers’ recommended installation protocols in order to fully fortify your roof and protect its warranty. We only use premium roofing materials that are designed to withstand both heavy storms and the heat of Central Texas summers.

    Signs You Need A Roof Replacement

    Signs that you need a roof replacement vary depending on several factors including the type, age, and quality of installation of your roof. A well-installed asphalt shingle roof system lasts around 10-15 years, while metal and tile roofs tend to last longer. The only way to know for sure is to have your roof inspected by a qualified roofing contractor, but here are a few indicators that you should give us a call sooner rather than later, based on your roof type…

    Shingle Roofs:

    1. Curling, damaged, or missing shingles
    2. Large water spots/discoloration on your ceiling or walls
    3. Visibly broken or degrading flashing (flashing is a metal component installed around the joints and penetration points of a roof as an extra layer of defense against leaks)
    4. Missing or damaged vents or vent caps
    5. Unwelcomed animals
    6. (What does a typical residential shingle roof replacement entail?)

    Metal Roofs:

    1. Rusting and discoloration
    2. Dents or punctures after a severe storm
    3. Protruding or loose nails or screws
    4. Lifted fasteners (fasteners are the central points at which metal roof panels are anchored into the wooden decking)
    5. The finish or paint is lifting from the metal panels

    Tile Roofs:

    1. Missing or sliding tiles (sometimes replacing missing tiles can be fixed with a small repair job, but over time, missing tiles can cause serious damage to the underlayment, requiring a full roof replacement) 
    2. Cracked tiles
    3. Large mold or mildew spots (homeowners will often have their tile roof pressure-washed to get rid of these unsightly spots, but it is common for pressure-washing companies to use bleach, which can degrade the underlayment and rust the nails holding your tiles in place.)

    No matter what type of roof you have, we recommend that homeowners get annual roof inspections to minimize the costs of any necessary repairs, and catch any of the aforementioned issues before they require a full roof replacement. Luckily, if you’ve passed that point and do need a full replacement, you’ve come to the right place!

    Roof Replacement Process: Shingle Roofs

    Step 1:

    Remove your existing roofing system (shingles, felt, nails, and drip edge) down to the decking. Roof decking is the wood panels that serve as the bottom-most layer of your roof.

    Step 2:

    We install Ice & Water into all penetrations, valleys, roof flashing, and chimneys. This step is important because it ensures that shingle nails will be completely sealed, and it protects areas that would otherwise be more susceptible to leaks than the rest of the roof.

    Step 3:

    Install synthetic roofing felt using 1 inch tab nails. Many contractors will use staples in this step because it’s faster and slightly cheaper, but doing so actually voids the manufacturer’s warranty on your new roof.

    Step 4:

    Install valley metal. The use of both Ice & water *and* valley metal is unique to JNC Roofing. Most contractors will use only one or the other, but we like to take every precaution to protect your roof from leaks down the road.

    Step 5:

    Drip edge is installed around the perimeter of the roof. Drip edge is a piece of 2×2 metal used to kick water out of the 1×2 inch fascia to prevent rotting

    Step 6:

    Starter strip is installed around the perimeter of the roof. Starter strip is an asphalt-based shingle designed to create a waterproof seal around the eve and rake edges of the roof.

    Step 7:

    Seal any and all exposed nails

    Step 8:

    Install new shingles using six 1 1/4′ coil nails per shingle. (If your ceiling is exposed in any areas, we’ll use 3/4′ nails so they don’t penetrate your ceiling)

    Step 9:

    We will continue cleaning up debris around your home throughout the day, making sure not to damage any of your landscaping

    Step 10:

    Our crew will make a final sweep with magnets to make sure there are no nails lingering around your property for the safety of you and your family.

    Step 11:

    And of course, no JNC Roofing job is complete until Chris conducts his final inspection!
