    With great honor, Jenkins Roofing accepted the 2022 Small Business of the Year at the Grand Prairie Chamber Community Awards. I am incredibly proud of my team, and was excited that my mom was able to be there after helping my dad run the company for nearly 40 years. It’s been 5 years since his passing, and I know he would be so proud! We dedicate this award to Jack’s memory, our great team that we have built, and all of our great customers over the last 55+ years in our community.

    What to look for with the roof!

    Even though the real estate market is uncertain, and interest rates are at an all time high, there is one thing that is definite… KNOWING if the roof is damaged and needs repair or replacement. 

    Because we have helped so many customers when they were either selling or buying a house, and have partnered with many real estate agents, we thought it was time to help create a go-to document to help people better understand what to look for in a roof when buying (or selling) a house in today’s market!

    First, take note of the type of roof the house has. Is it a metal flat-like roof or a composite shingle high slant roof?  Take a step back and really look at it. There could be some curly edges, bulges, or worn spots that can give signs that the roof has aged and could be damaged. When looking, you might see if shingles are missing and realize that the roof has deformities and is quite old. You can check for mold on the roof by seeing fungus and discoloration of shingles. No matter what you see when you are standing back, or even up on a ladder peeking at your roof, just know the smartest move is to have a formal roof inspection done by a professional before buying or selling a house.

    Here is why. Professional and certified roofers have a trained eye, knowledge, and experience to detect if there are problems with the roof. Not only that, Roofing companies like Jenkins Roofing and Construction, do both interior & exterior checks!

    Jenkins roofing inspectors will check the state of the shingles & flashings, look for leaks, inspect the area around the chimney, plus inspect the attic to rule out moisture & mold, and will confirm proper ventilation & insulation. Skipping this step initially could lead to costly repairs down the road as structural damage to the home occurs and can stop you from closing the deal, whether buying or selling a home.

    A Dependable Roofing Contractor Can Help You Close the Deal

    As a Realtor®, you know anytime you can shepherd a swift and seamless sale or purchase of your client’s home, it’s a big success. One contributor to these successes is a partnership with an established, dependable roofing company. 

    As part of any pre-sale inspection, both sellers and buyers want to complete a thorough roof assessment, along with all necessary repairs, before closing. So roofing contractors are already, in almost every case, part of the real estate sales process. Having a trusted roofing partner in place can be convenient, can save all parties money and can even help move the sale along.

    Here are five reasons to form a partnership with a trusted roofing company (and there are many others):

    1. Roofing Partners are Good for Second Opinions

    If your buyer or seller already has a roofing company conduct a roof assessment, your trusted roofing partner will often provide a quick, free second opinion. This may save your client a lot of money on unnecessary repairs.

    1. They Can Help with Repairs

    Good contractors are hard to find. So, if a client’s roof needs repairs, a trusted roofer may worth his or her weight in gold. Not only would a dependable partner do the right, but they can also save you money, save you time researching roofing companies and get the repairs done in a timely manner.

    In other words, when you have a roofer on call, all you have to do is pick up the phone and you’ll know everything will be taken care of.

    1. They Offer Free Estimates

    Most reputable, experienced roofing contractors will gladly provide free estimates for roof repairs or replacements. Sometimes, however, they don’t. When you have a roofing partner, all that will be worked out in advance. Then, anytime the need arises, you’ll get professional, thorough estimates at no cost to you or your clients.

    1. They Can Speed up Closing 

    These last two benefits of having a trusted roofing partner contribute even more to a Realtor’s success. When repairs are required by a seller, for example, you want them done quickly and, often, you need proof that repairs were completed. A roofing partner will get you thorough reports quickly – with exactly the information you need. 

    In turn, since you don’t have to wait for your report, this should help speed up closing.  

    1. They Can Help Get the House Sold

    A trusted roofing company partner is beneficial for all parties – the buyer, the seller, the agents, the mortgage company – everybody. 

    When roof inspections, repairs or replacements are called for (which is the case in most transactions), a roofing partner will get the work done quickly, efficiently and professionally. Knowing that this big hurdle is going to be handled means more peace of mind for everyone involved, and one less (major) thing for your buyer to be worried about.

    A good roofer simply means more sales. WE CAN HELP YOU CLOSE THE DEAL!

    Hail Isn’t the Only Summer Weather You Should Worry About

    Texans love their state. And with good reason; it’s a great place to live, work and raise a family.

    But even the most loyal residents must admit the summer months can be brutal. Hailstorms are a big threat; a few minutes of golf ball-sized ice pellets hitting your cars, home or landscaping can be devastating. The bigger problem, however, may be the heat. With the Texas sun beating down relentlessly and temperatures on the rise, homeowners need to be aware of how all that heat can damage many components around your home – especially your roof. 

    Here are some of the ways heat can hurt:

    Thermal Movement
    Extreme heat can cause your roof to expand and contract, which can lead to cracks and gaps in the roofing material. In this case, it’s the combination of rising and falling temperatures that can cause the problems.

    UV Radiation
    High summer temperatures usually mean higher levels of harsh UV radiation. For most roofing materials, this leads to both decomposing of the structures and a fading or discoloring effect. Prolonged exposure might also weaken the surface of your roof and make it more porous over time.  

    Shingles
    The heat can cause your shingles to curl and crack, creating more open spaces which can lead to leaks and other problems.

    Old Age
    Another thing to keep in mind is the age of your roof. Most roofs last between 15 and 25 years, depending on the material and quality of installation. If your roof is approaching the end of its lifespan, it may be more susceptible to heat damage. If this is the case, you might want to consider a replacement. While this can be a significant investment, it’s important to remember that a new roof can add value to your home and provide peace of mind for years to come.

    Here’s one more thing to take into consideration: If you have a flat roof, the Texas heat can cause even more problems (and cost you more money). Flat roofs are more susceptible to damage from the sun’s UV rays, which can cause the roofing material to break down and deteriorate faster than other types of roofs.

    Minimizing Damage

    Your roof is, and always will be, exposed to the weather; there’s nothing you can do about that.

    But there is a lot you can do to minimize problems and/or keep a hot roof from causing further structural damage on or in your home. 

    Regular Inspections
    The best thing you can do to minimize damage to your roof from the Texas heat is to schedule regular inspections. This will help identify any issues before they become major problems and save you a lot of money in the long run. Of course, the best way to handle inspections is with an experienced, local roofer with the state’s best warranty – Jenkins Roofing and Construction.

    Timely Maintenance
    In addition to regular inspections, it’s important to keep an eye out for any signs of damage or wear and tear on your roof. This includes things like missing shingles, leaks or cracks in the roofing material. If you notice any of these issues, contact a professional right away (like Jenkins) to prevent further damage.

    Add Protections
    Some homeowners choose to invest in reflective roofing materials or coatings to help reduce the amount of heat absorbed by your roof. The color of your shingles could be a factor, as well. All of these can help your roof last longer. And these protections come with a bonus: They can help keep your home cooler and your energy bills lower.
