Is Your Roof Telling You It’s Time to Call a Roofing Company in San Antonio?

Mon, May 14, 2018

As a homeowner, it’s common to encounter various phrases you don’t want to hear, such as “your plumbing is shot” or “the septic tank needs replaced”.Hearing these phrases is enough to cause any homeowner’s mind to race. The same thing goes for the roof, the last thing many homeowners want to hear from the roofing company in San Antonio is that you need a complete replacement and that the damages to the structure of your home are due to a faulty roof. So, what can you do to increase the life span of your roof? The answer is quite simple…listen to what the roof is telling you. Here are a few things to be aware of that may be signs your roof is trying to tell you something is wrong.

The Neighbors are Replacing Their Roof

A good sign that it’s time that your roof has reached the end of its lifespan is if other homeowners in your neighborhood are replacing their roofs. In many situations, homes in the same neighborhood were built around the same period, so they have experienced the same types of weather conditions as your home, which means if the neighbor's roof needs replaced, yours probably does as well.

Granules in the Gutters

If the gutters are filled with granules from the shingles or if you are noticing granules on the ground, it means the shingles have reached the end of their lifespan. As asphalt shingles age, the granules on the shingles begin to weaken from the elements and will gradually fall off, ending up in the gutters, downspouts and along the foundation. The granules are meant to protect the roof against the sun’s UV rays, so once the granules are gone, the shingles become brittle and weaken the strength of the shingles; ultimately reducing your home’s protection against water damages.

Cupping or Curling Shingles

If you notice the shingles are cupping or curling on the edges, it may mean the attic doesn’t have proper ventilation. However, cupping may also happen as shingles age, and an improperly ventilated attic will accelerate the problem. If the attic gets too hot, it heats the roof, which in turn heats the underside of the shingles and causes them to curl and cup. Cupping and curling shingles will allow the rain to get under the shingles and eventually into your home.

Some things, such as missing shingles, are a sure sign that there is a problem with the roof, but the problem may not be as simple as you think. For example, missing shingles following a heavy storm is a result of the storm; but if there are missing shingles and there haven’t been any recent storms, it may mean an animal is causing the damage. Either way, it is important to contact a roofing company in San Antonio as soon as you suspect possible damages to the roof. The sooner the roof is repaired or replaced, the less risk there is of possible water damage to the structure as well as the interior of your home. Paying attention to what your roof is trying to tell you, will allow you to catch the problem early and prevent larger, more expensive problems.

Our kitchen remodel took 8 weeks to complete. Salvador and his crew worked hard. They were knowledgeable and professional, as well as, friendly throughout the process. I had a special request for the color of my cabinets. Salvador got it done. They are beautiful and unique. I was always able to reach Salvador at anytime and he always took care of the situation. The office staff was so helpful, especially in the selection process.. Everyone was professional, helpful and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaw Remodeling, the office staff, Salvador and crew for your remodeling needs, big or small. We will definitely call them again.

To the owners and management of Shaw, We wanted you all to know how pleased we are with the results of our recent bathroom tub to shower conversion. It turned out beautiful, exactly the way we had hoped. Your staff was top notch! From start to finish every person involved was professional, on time or early and friendly. In addition, we were impressed with how much care they took in keeping our home clean throughout the whole process. We realized after the job was finished that they had actually wiped down the bathroom to remove and left over dust... Nice job on hiring great help! Thank you again. Looking forward to seeing you again this week to measure and install cabinets in our laundry room and master bath!

We have used several remodeling companies through the years ending up with substandard work. So glad to have found Shaw! We will never use anyone else! With the way most companies just want to take your money and run, it's nice to find someone with a great work ethic! They really care about their clients and the quality of their work. Thanks Shaw!

We hired Shaw Co to redo our shower. We had previously received quotes from two other shower companies but we felt they were being less than honest with us and were pricier than they needed to be. Shout out to Patrick and Fernando, Jr!

These guys at Shaw are great: they'll do what they say they're going to do, and they do it on time. For the next project, they're at the top of the list.

“On time and on budget” Magic words to any homeowner’s ears. Shaw Remodeling just completed our shower/tub conversion to a walk in shower, and we are very pleased. We signed our contract on a Monday, and Anthony was at our house Thursday to begin the project. He and his team were very professional, diligently working to complete each phase of the project in a timely manner. Brittany was not only helpful in the showroom with selections, but she also was very responsive to additional questions on design that I had throughout the project. All in all, this project was easier than I had anticipated due to Anthony’s continued communication and the quality of work done.

Shaw remodeling did an excellent job on our master bathroom. Clay was always concerned that we were satisfied with their work. When they tell you they are not finished until you are 100% happy THEY MEAN IT! I want to thank Clay for all his hard work on the new door it was a bit difficult to install. Everyone mentions the beautiful door. Special thanks to Jordan for suggesting the accent wall behind the vanity also a favorite of all. Brittany made is so easy helping us with the design. Thank you to Nancy and the Shaw family who sent me flowers while I was very ill during the remodel.

This is my SECOND contracted job with Shaw's. They did a complete kitchen last year and I chose them based on a recommendation I received as well as my own evaluation. They did a terrific job, Salvador and his crew. Brittany was extremely helpful in the planning and setup of the decisions we had to make. So, one last project to complete to update our home, the Master Bathroom. Again, I chose Shaw's and did not consider other companies this time as I wanted the excellence and quality that comes with Salvador and his team. I think he has the best tile guy-Antonio, best dry wall-Rafael, and electrician /plumber in Marcos, in the business. I cannot go without recognizing Robert that starts the demo, everyone is just absolutely terrific to work with. When I made the call to Brittany, she ask who I wanted to do the job, of course, I responded in saying Salvador and his team. Salvador built my cabinets in both jobs as I knew the quality would be second to none. Shaw's is not the cheapest, nor have I found them the most expensive, but whoever is thinking about a major investment in their home, they should consider the quality and service before anything else. Please feel free to contact me if anyone has any further questions. Regards, Mike and Teresa Willis.

I am thrilled with the complete master bath remodel that Alain & his incredible crew from Shaw recently completed in my home. It was a great experience from start to finish. This company truly works as a team, communication channels are all open. Even when a hiccup occurred…they addressed it immediately & moved forward. The crew was professional & positive…really a pleasure to have them in my home. Alain went above & beyond in every aspect including making sure I was not simply satisfied with the work but truly happy. I also want to thank his crew member Sammy. He did an exceptional job & really kept the work site clean every day. I will absolutely use Shaw again for future projects.

We live with the work done by your team. Everyday we can enjoy the results. Through hail and high water, tile delays, it is an accomplishment all around. I appreciate the generosity of explaining why this and that is done. Our letters are intended to show our thanks. Any bonus was well deserved/earned by the team. Be proud of the work done, as we are in showing it off.

Shaw is a very professional company. Anthony was informative, courteous, and super professional. He communicated continually throughout the remodeling process and was always willing to adjust or change anything we requested. His crew was very respectful. Christopher, Marcus, and Roy are outstanding in their fields. From Patrick's design expertise and Brittany's helpful coordination of materials, my kitchen is beautiful and functional. The Shaw team follows up continually and is great to work with.

Alain and his crew were great. Hard working through this heat outside. Very conscious about the area they were not working in to keep clean. Great job painting brick, siding and trim with different shades. Very professional in their execution of the contract. Would definitely contract them for any future work. Thanks again.
