Having a properly functioning installation is essential; however, there are other important considerations to be aware of in addition to selecting the right Plano roofing company. A installation or repair is more than just selecting the right shingles, it also includes other components, such as installing full and proper underlayment, having the proper flashing, and providing water tight valleys. Unfortunately, many Plano roofing companies are hurrying just to get the job finished, looking to save money and cut corners by not addressing or improving these components correctly.

Insurance Claim Assistance
If your Plano roof received storm, fire or water damage, we can help in all phases of restoration on your property. Starting with an expert analysis of the damage, we will write a full report of the damages, as well as work directly with your insurance carrier or adjuster to ensure your property receives the proper settlement. Many times, customers are forced to complete roof repairs in Plano based on what the insurance adjuster wrote in their estimates, while never realizing that the initial offer by the carrier can be negotiated up or increased depending on how the settlement estimate is written. One reason is because most roofing contractors do not have the knowledge, skill or experience to work the claim properly. We use the same “database system” that insurance companies use to calculate the damage on your roof, however, we know how to use the component-based options within the estimating program to increase the available funds for the customer. We will show you how, by providing you with a detailed comparative analysis highlighting where the insurance company either got it right or wrong in their estimate. About 95% of the time, we see the claim funds increased substantially because of our experience and knowledge in working within this estimating system. We are very successful in this process and it makes a huge difference in the claim settlement for our customers.
Asphalt shingles are the leading choice for residential roofing in the United States because they provide quality, durability, versatility and economy. Four out of five homes are roofed with asphalt shingles and over 12.5 billion square feet of asphalt shingle products are manufactured annually – enough to cover more than 5 million homes every year. There are three major categories of shingle products available in the market:
The Three-tab Roof Shingle
Standard composition shingles are referred to as three-tab shingles, because they come in three-tabs with notches that create what appears to be three separate shingles. Three-tab shingles are the original and the most basic of roofing shingles available in the industry. Three-tab shingles are denoted by the fact that they are single layered roofing shingles that are generally designed to look like slate. Three-tab shingles have a very flat appearance on the roof line and are typically the lightest weight roofing shingles available in the market. Three-tab shingles used to be the predominant roofing shingle available and used in the market. Today, however, with significant advances in technology and consumer sophistication, three-tab shingles are used primarily by home builders or purchased by homeowners as replacement roofing shingles for homes that already have three-tab shingles on the roof.
The Architectural Roof Shingle
Dimensional Shingles (or Architectural Shingles) are now the predominant shingles installed in North America. These products are manufactured as dual-layered or even tri-layered products and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look). Typically, architectural shingles are heavier weight than three-tab roofing shingles and usually have improved warranty protections, which can range from 30-years to lifetime.
The Premium Roof Shingle
The top-of-the-line shingles for each manufacturer are referred to as premium shingles. Premium shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional Architectural Shingles. These products may have designs that mimic “old-world” shingles, like natural slate or natural shake shingles. Premium shingles might also have important functional improvements such as impact resistance or solar reflectivity that can possibly extend the life of the roofing system or provide lower energy costs.
Clay tile is produced by baking molded clay into tile. The density of the clay is determined by the length of time and temperature at which it is heated. Tiles may be glazed and also may have surface texture treatments applied. As a result, there are a wide variety of tile profiles, styles, finishes and colors available. Installation methods depend on the nature of the tile being installed; that is, whether it is two piece, one piece, interlocking or flat.
Concrete tiles are made of Portland cement, sand and water in varying proportions. The material is mixed and extruded on molds under high pressure. The exposed surface of a tile may be finished with material colored with synthetic oxide additives. The tiles are cured to reach the required strength. They generally have lugs on their undersides for anchoring to batten strips. There are interlocking ribs on the longitudinal edges that impede movement and prevent water infiltration. As with clay tile, there are a wide variety of profiles, styles, finishes and colors available. Color may be added to the surface of a tile or dispersed throughout (color through). Special texture may be added in surface treatment.
Slate roofing tile has a long and storied history, and is generally known as one of the highest quality, longest lasting roofing materials on the market. There are several classifications for slate roof systems. The first is standard slate, which refers to slate that generally is from 3/16 inch (5 mm) to 1/4 inch (6 mm) thick with uniform length. The category “standard smooth” refers to standard slate that has a relatively smooth surface, in comparison with “standard rough” or just “rough”. Rough slate has a rougher texture and generally is available in thicker pieces. Finally, there is “graduated/textural slate,” which is designed with varying lengths and thicknesses and generally is rougher than standard slates. Slate is also available in a wide range of colors, including gray, green, purple, black, red, and mottled tiles that sport several colors mixed together.
Synthetic slate shingles are a modern replacement on a construction classic. Manufactured with virgin rubber or plastic and incorporate recycled rubber or plastic, mineral dust or cellulose fibers. Synthetic slate is designed to mirror the beauty and uniqueness of authentic slate without the expense or installation headaches.
Synthetic slate is considered a “green” building alternative—even those that use virgin materials—because all types of synthetic slate can be recycled at the end of a roof’s usable life.
Synthetic slate shingles are more durable than authentic slate, as they contain advanced ultraviolet inhibitors to reduce wear from the sun.
Safety is built-in. Synthetic slate typically contains impact modifiers to help withstand storm damage; in fact, most are certified by Underwriters Laboratories for Class 4 impact resistance, the highest level for materials. Many synthetic slates also have the highest fire-resistance rating—Class A—which means they’re effective against severe exposure to external fires, are not readily flammable and do not spread fire.
Synthetic slate shingles are lighter than all asphalt shingles. Their light weight also means that a standard roof structure can support synthetic slate shingles with no special reinforcement, making them practical for mainstream residential construction.
There are three general categories of metal roof systems used for roofing applications: Architectural metal panel, Structural metal panel and Metal shingle/shingle panels. Generally, architectural metal panel roof systems are water shedding and are intended for use on steep slope roofs. Structural metal panel roof systems are used on low and steep slope roofs. Structural metal panel roof systems can be used on low slope roofs because of their hydrostatic, or water barrier, characteristics.
Because architectural metal panel roof systems typically are designed to be used on steep slopes that will shed water rapidly over the metal panels’ surface, the seams typically are not watertight. Many architectural metal roof systems are well suited for use on roof slopes of 3 inches per foot (14 degrees) or greater. One exception to the general slope guidelines for architectural metal panel roof systems is the traditional flat seamed, soldered or welded metal roof system, such as copper. It may be specified on slopes less than 3 inches per foot (14 degrees). Solid roof sheathing, or decking, is required for architectural metal panel roof systems, and NRCA recommends using underlayment.
There are many categories of metal panels. The term “standing seam” often is used as a generic description for a class of metal roof seams. The name “standing seam” is derived from the fact that the seams are joined together above the panel flats. The term also is used to refer to a panel profile that includes a standing seam: the vertical leg/flat pan and the trapezoidal seam. The trapezoidal standing seam is more commonly associated with structural metal panels. Other panel types are batten, flat, bermuda and shingled.
The original batten seam consisted of vertical leg panels placed between wood batten strips and covered with a cap. Today, many batten seam panels are constructed entirely of metal. Because they are designed to shed water, batten seam panels primarily are used in architectural applications.
Other panel types are: batten, flat, Bermuda and shingled.
