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.

Had great interactions from beginning to end of our master bathroom remodel project. Jordan and Audrey did a tremendous job helping get us started and walking us through all the details. Anthony Martinez and his crew came in and took care of the demo and remodel quickly, we’re attentive when discussing the project, and helped quickly correct any minor issues that arose. Anthony was always quick to reply to calls and texts, and he did a great job helping to make sure the project continued to move along in a timely manner. We are super happy with our remodeled master bathroom and the services provided by the folks at Shaw!

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.

We had a wonderful master bath renovation experience. They completed the job within the time frame they quoted. Anthony was a great project manager and communicated with me every day so I would know what to expect and at what time the workers would arrive. I found him to be an excellent representative for the company. Christopher was always pleasant and listened to and addressed any concerns I might have had. He is also a wonderful company representative. Nancy was pleasant and always kept me informed. Shaw Company Remodeling is lucky to have these 3 people working for them. This was NOT one of those nightmare renovations you hear about with others who say they can do it cheaper. I would highly recommend this company and do business with them again.

From our initial visit with Patrick to our design session with Brittany to our final “walk through” with Anthony, our bathroom shower project went VERY smoothly. All craftsmen were professional, doing high quality work. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaw Company Remodeling.

Brittany, helped me make my selections, Nancy held my hand, Patrick planned and priced the job, and Chris and Anthony brought my ideas to fruition! It took all of the above to bring me my perfect kitchen and bath remodel. This was my second kitchen remodel and it went very well. I was contacted daily, site was cleaned daily, and workers present daily. I had 8 project changes and each was addressed respectfully and most of all happily! They are a 5 star company with 5star people!

I have been using Shaw Company since 2002 (14 years now) when I had a partial flood in my house. Not only an excellent job at a fairly reasonable price, the workgroup foreman added a couple of preventative extras at no cost to me. Since that time, altho I have contacted other contractors for an estimate, I primarily use only Shaw Co. Eric is friendly yet polite and is meticulous about making sure I know what they will be doing and how long the job will take. He answers any questions I have whether before, during, or even after the job. His workmen are always on time, do the job as contracted, and careful to clean up their mess. I know I can trust Eric and his workmen to live up to the contract and, if necessary, beyond.

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.

February 2018 To the Shaw Company: Let me start out by saying the GARZA project has turned out to be a smashing success!!!!! Our kitchen, floors, and wall removal was a huge project and we lived to tell about it (hard to do with two toddlers and two dogs in the house!). But it would be remise of us not to mention what a positive and professional experience we had from start to finish with your company. Mr. Paul Colavecchia helped answer the millions of questions we had and gave us HONEST estimates about the work ahead. He showed up to help us in closing on our loan and kept the lines of communication opened at all times. Ms. Brittany Shaw and Gerrilynn Mohler helped us design everything and made, what felt like an overwhelming experience, into a positive and fun process. But it is with grateful hearts that we commend the team of incredibly hard working guys that made everything possible for us: • Jorge – the amount of effort he put into cutting and laying the floors in such a large space so they came out “just perfect” was a wonder to watch! Thank you! • Marcus – from our lighting, plumbing and appliance installation -he really puts in a hard day’s work – and all with a sense of humor!!! We appreciate the long hours! Thank you! • Roy – He took ideas for my “dream cabinets” and made them a reality! They are beautiful and efficient. Whether it is conversations or quality of work – when dealing with Roy the professionalism is of the highest caliber. Thank you! Lastly, what can you say about Rusty that hasn’t been mentioned already! He treated our home like his own home and that is hard to find. It may sound cliché, but my husband and I have waited a long time to take this house and make it our home, so it truly is a dream finally realized and Rusty was the man who made it happen for us. We are truly indebted to him. In closing, we feel very blessed that we found your company, but of course, you made it easy for us to choose Shaw. Since you gave us your respect and quality workmanship, we will be sure to give you the only thing we have to offer (and the most important) our future recommendations (and possibly more work!!). Take care.

Very Respectfully, The Garza Family – James, Melissa, Dominic, & Amelia
