Giving Thanks To Your Roof Above!

The wonderful month of November always brings fond memories of cooler, crisp weather, spending time with loved ones, and chowing down on arguably the best food of the year (not to mention the time honored tradition of seeing ‘ol Uncle Ted passed out in the easy chair in front of a football game due to too much turkey and other libations)!  This time of year is always the traditional time on the calendar where we Americans look back on the year and reflect on the moments and memories that have made the past handful of months worthwhile and joyous. Durability Roofing also finds this time of year a great time to give thanks for a well-working roof as it keeps you and your family safe through the wet winter months.

5 Simple Steps To Keep Your Gutters Clear Of Debris

5 Simple Steps To Keep Your Gutters Clear Of Debris

As many property owners know, there are a multitude of duties and a laundry list of chores when it comes to maintaining and tending to your household. The obvious chores tend to be the ones which get taken care of on a regular basis: Weeding the garden, painting the front door, and vacuuming the house. Be that as it may, the work your house needs that is not always obvious can lead to neglect of said maintenance. In this blog, we would like to bring your attention to your gutters. Something that almost every home has, yet something which many a homeowner fails to properly tend to. As an integral part of your property, one of the main purposes of your gutters is to send water and moisture off your roof and away from the foundation of your home. Therefore, it is paramount that your gutters are free of debris and leaves so they can do their job in keeping your foundation from becoming weak and from water damage occurring to other areas of your home. In addition, unattended and blocked gutters can break, splintering off and causing damage to the main structure of your home. This lends to the …

Why Fall is the Best Season for Roof Work

Why Fall is the Best Season for Roof Work

Roofing is complicated, demanding work.  Although there is some basic maintenance you can perform for your roof at home, we always recommend hiring professionals for any repairs or replacements.  The difficulty of a roofing job can increase depending on the time of year, the weather, and the height of the building.  If you need a repair or replacement done, fall is the most ideal season for roofing work and here is why:  1.) Stormy Season is Over.  By autumn, the intense spring and summer rains are over.  Storm damage is far more likely to affect your roof during those times of year, and fall is the perfect time to evaluate what shape your roof is in.  As rainy conditions can often turn into setbacks in the roofing schedule and other complications for quality, the drier days in fall make it far easier for a contractor to get the job done efficiently.   2.) Ideal Temperatures The consensus by professionals in the field is that the best temperature for roofing work is 45 to 50 degrees out.  A clear day in this temperature range makes for comfortable conditions for the workers and the roofing materials alike.  For example, if you are getting …

6 Bits Of Weather-Related Roofing Damage - Texas Style

6 Bits Of Weather-Related Roofing Damage – Texas Style

We all know that living in Texas brings with it a myriad of weather and storms. Durability Roofing and Construction would like to share with you 6 types of weather-related roofing damage which are familiar to Texas, and what to expect if that weather damage happens. Hailstorms Even though hailstorms can be wildly unpredictable and can bring with them a wide-rage of damage to roofs, they are one of the most common weather-related insurance claims in Texas (which is why it is always wise to have hail damage insurance). While the size of the hail will certainly have an impact on the damage to your roof, the type of roof you have also matters. For example, metal, although maybe not the most eye-appealing, can withstand more than most other roofing materials. While it may dent under the impact of falling hail, metal is more adverse to breaking apart.  Straight-Line Wind Straight-line winds can bring with them some power, as well as the ability to pick and carry other objects, thus creating unimagined damage to your roof. This is once again, like hail, another situation where you as a property owner should more than likely have some form of wind insurance. …
