Lydick-Hooks Roofing Co. of Wichita Falls Inc. would like to offer the following tips for selecting a qualified commercial roofer:
The felt underlayment dictates the water tightness of the tile roof system. Normally 3 plies of ASTM D226 heavy weight #30 felt is installed, as a minimum, under the clay tile roof system. If the old felt is deteriorated the tile must be removed and the felt underlayment replaced then the existing tile may be relayed.
On both low and steep slope roofs, it is always preferable to remove the existing roof down to the decking. Code states that existing residential shingle roofs must be removed before new shingles are installed as only one roof system may be in place at any time. However, low slope roofs are allowed to have two roof systems installed so some roofs may be eligible for a recover in certain situations. There are a numerous amount of criteria that an existing roofing system must meet in order to be eligible for a recover.
Yes, the time to address all the roof issues was when the roofer was replacing the roof. Normally all flashings should be inspected and if any are damaged or rusted they should be replaced when the roof is replaced. The cost would be much less at that time, not to mention possible water damage and cost to have it repaired at a later date.
Yes, included will be photographs of your roof as well as a life expectancy and a 3-5 year plan.
The existing roof is covered. All equipment, drains, plumbing, interior and exterior structure are excluded.
The purpose of the RMP is to prevent leaks from happening. We do the best we can to stop them before they start but this is not a warranty program. If you have a leak, you may call us and our Service Department will repair the leak ASAP. Our RMP customers are our #1 priority.
We will inspect the roof and repair any of the following items necessary to maintain your roof in a watertight condition.
Yes, with each year’s invoice, a new service agreement will be sent with an opportunity to renew. There is no additional cost.
The RMP is renewable on a year-to-year basis and can be discontinued at any time. If there is an interruption in you RMP and you decide to restart the program, another inspection and set of repairs will be required before maintenance can be restarted.
