Roof repair is something you will always have to deal with as a homeowner. Roof repair can include anything from fixing things like damaged shingles, holes, roof leaks, or dents. A roof contractor, also called a roofer or roofing company, often handles these problems, but you can also do it yourself. The failure to fix minor roof deterioration is something that can cause premature roof problems. Our Dallas chimney, masonry, and carpentry repair services require an expert team with special roofing skills. Roofing materials include roofing nails, roofing felt, shingles, tarpaper, and other materials. Roof repair is an important part of home maintenance and choosing the right roof contractor is very important. You’ve made the right choice with our Dallas roof repair team at Griffith Roofing.
There is no denying the fact that roofs are not designed to last forever. With the amount of wear and tear that our homes take every day as the sun beats down, rain pours in and winds unleash their fury, it is no surprise that roof shingles in Dallas are loosened over time. And aside from the weather, decay and wear also take their toll on even the highest-quality roofing materials over time. So the question is not whether or not you will ever need to replace a roof; the question is whether you need a Dallas roof replacement now or if it can wait until later.
When roofs are old and worn out they can turn an otherwise beautiful home into an eyesore. Aside from the aesthetic quality of the home, the aging roof can also put you and everyone in your home at greater risk of leaking, which eventually will lead to significant water damage inside the home if left uncorrected. You can always just patch up the worn spots, of course, but who wants to live under a patchwork roof? As these little repairs become more frequent and your roof is looking worse with each patch job, it may be time to consider a roof replacement. Griffith Roofing is your solution for all your Dallas-Fort Worth roofing needs.
It is a very common problem for General Contractors to direct roofing or waterproofing contractors to install moisture protection prematurely or to “phase” the installation with the G.C’s objective, to allow interior trades to proceed, being the primary concern. This often results in a substandard roofing installation.
Another common problem, especially on large projects, is damage to the moisture protection system by construction traffic of other trades. These are avoidable problems if properly addressed. The best approach is to conduct a pre-installation meeting attended by all interested parties, i.e., the owner’s representative, G.C, Architect, plumber, electrician, roofing materials manufacturer, and a Dallas roofing contractor. Griffith Roofing has the experience and knowledge necessary to provide you with a cost-effective solution for your new construction roofing needs.

The benefits of properly installed gutter system channels water away from the base of your home, possibly helping to avoid foundation problems, water staining and soil erosion. Concentrated water on door entrances or decks can cause high moisture levels and lead to wood rot. Additionally, this collection of water in your roof valleys may cascade onto your sidewalk or patio, leaving you with a waterfall effect. In the winter, this can lead to thick freezing ice on your side walk or patio area. These issues can be fixed by either cleaning out the original gutter system, installing a new gutter system and/or leaf guard system and changing the downspout size to a larger downspout that can handle more water (and has a larger opening to let that water out) which will not clog as easy.
