Repairing and Preparing Your Roof
Roofing and Whole Home Exterior Solutions
The taxing tropical weather, rain, heat, and humidity of Houston can contribute to deterioration and discoloration of your roof and mean that repairs must happen even sooner for Houston homes. When your home is damaged, it’s best to act fast to ensure integrity. Remember that damage to your exterior can ruin the inside of your home as well with enough time. Your home’s air conditioning system, attic, and walls are especially vulnerable when your roof leaks, and you’ll want to act as soon as you find damage to prevent the problem from spreading.
Everything from roofing to windows, exterior doors, and siding are involved in sealing and protecting your home, and each requires special care to remodel and maintain. Even for the most intrepid handyman, most home exterior repairs are simply unsafe to tackle alone, especially without proper training and equipment. So if you’re starting to notice wear and tear, contact John Moore to get our team of experts on your side.

Leaks, Holes, and Failing Shingles
Signs it’s Time for Roof Repair
While regular maintenance for roofs is important, there are a few things you can watch for to let you know when more extensive repairs are needed. By far the most common cause of roof damage are leaks from heavy rain and moisture. Have you noticed any water damage in your home or attic? Do you smell mildew or musk in your attic? These can be key indicators that your roof is leaking.
Besides leaking caused from inclement weather, the age of a roof can play a major role in repairs, too. Has it been more than a decade and a half since someone looked at your roof? It may be time to call John Moore out to reshingle and touch up your roof.
Has your home been through a recent storm or been damaged by falling tree limbs? Call John Moore out for a service check, and we’ll patch up any damage we find. Falling tree limbs aren’t the only thing that can cause a hole in your roof, though. If you’ve noticed any animals in your home or signs of water leaks, a hole in the roof may be responsible.
From Shingles to Soffits
The Components of a Residential Roof
Understanding the makeup of your roof can give you a better idea of potential problems and the solutions we offer to fix them. The type of roof you have will also determine what materials we use. While flat roofs may be covered with gravel and pebble or more modern Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), slanted roofs may be covered in anything from metal to tile. However, the majority of residential homes still rely on asphalt or clay shingles.
So what are the parts of a modern home’s roof? For most homes, shingles form the outer layer and are typically made from coarse, granular asphalt designed to keep the roof as dry as possible while also providing some indication of wear. As the grain begins to wear down (not to be mistaken with algae that causes black streaking), it may be time to consider repairs. Below your shingles, tar paper and decking provide additional protection for the home’s rafters beneath. Soffit and facia form the rest of the roof, with soffit forming the underside of any overhanging ledges and facia acting as the border for roof ledges. Finally, your gutter system acts as a drain for any water or debris that find their way to your roof, with the actual gutter attaching to the roof via facia brackets and spouts providing a route for water to drain out and away from the home.
As a homeowner, you can choose from 20 year, 30 year, or 40 year shingles to fit your needs and budget, and we will work with you to identify any additional repairs needed for the rafters, soffit, or facia itself. If your home requires a less traditional roofing solution, we can provide everything from gravel to terra cotta shingles.
Getting the Job Done Right
John Moore’s Roofing Process
Roof repairs can be surprisingly quick, often taking a single day for a reshingling job. However, each repair is different and we want to treat your home with the respect and time it deserves. After you set up an initial inspection with our roofing team, we’ll come out and identify the problem. Based on the extent of damage and the repairs needed, we’ll create an estimate and run you through the plans for repairs. We can even tailor plans to offer good, better, and best fixes that are priced to fit almost any budget.
Once you’ve selected and approved the plan that best solves your roofing problem within your budget, we’ll move forward with repairs and recommend any additional fixes for other problems we find along the way. In most cases, you’ll be able to stay in your home while we work on it. Bear in mind, however, that inclement weather may delay repairs.
