Our certified sales team will contact you to set up an appointment to go inspect your roof.
If the salesman determines you have hail damage then it will be your responsibility as the homeowner to contact your insurance company to file a claim with them. An insurance adjuster will come by your home to do their own inspection on the damages. You will then receive an estimate from you insurance company and you will give that packet to your salesman so they can review it. Sometimes the insurance adjuster will miss something on your home that was damage. So then it will be the salesman responsibility to take pictures of the damages then we will submit them to your insurance company that way they can pay for those damages. We will work with your insurance company to be sure all damages to your home are paid for by your insurance company.

By the time you see a leak in your home it has already created a stain on your ceiling or walls. There are different reasons why you have leaks.
Here are a few reasons why you may have a leak:
- Damaged Accessories
- Poor roof installment
- Gutters and downspouts
- Chimney Cricket
It is important to find the leak before the entire roof is damaged. Our certified salesmen can find the problem to your leak. A salesman will first get on your roof and do a thorough inspection on your accessories, shingles, chimney and gutters. If they can’t find evidence on the roof then they will inspect your attic to see if they can see the leak from there. What they’re looking for is wet spots or wet installation. If the weather in the area of home has been dry for a while then our salesman will look for water marks, stains, or discolorations on the wood made by moisture. Keep in mind spots that need repair such as leaks will not extend the life of a roof if it needs replacement.
Roof drainage is an important design in construction when building a house. There must be a way water is being gathered and discharged from the top of the roof. If there is no way water is being drainage off the roof there is a possibility from heavy water that is collecting on your roof it will further damage your roof. The worst that may happen to your roof is collapse. During construction homes are given a roof slope of 4/12 pitch and above to avoid any water collecting on your roof. To avoid any ice damming roofs are now being built with a 7/12 pitch and above. For residential homes the best aid for a drainage system will be to install gutters. Many residential homes in our area have gutters. Gutters will help solve the drainage issues on your home.
Listed below are a few of the solutions:
- The soil around the house is stabilized
- Foundation issues of your home will be resolved
- Prevent flooding below the home and the basement
- Preventing erosion this will help preserve your landscaping and turf
- Your siding around your house can be protected from water damage
- Brick and stone masonry can be protected from water stains
- Decrease the chance on your home of settling, and cracking of sidewalks, patios and driveways
- Garage and exterior doors can be protected from any type of water damage
Whether you see the storms on the horizon or hear the crack of thunder, you know the storm is coming. You are depending on your home's roof to keep the rain out of your home. However, if your roof drainage system is not working, you may find the rain is coming into your home instead of being directed away. Are your rain gutters up to the task?
Windows play many roles. They protect the home from the potential damage wind and rain can cause. They contribute to the look of the home. They provide a barrier from exterior noise. If even one window in your home is not playing its role correctly, you need to consider replacement.
The exterior of your house tells the story of your style. Your house siding provides a safe outer protection for your home and is the first impression of the house. When your house needs new siding – it’s not wise to put off replacing it. You have several options when it comes to the type of house siding to choose.
Old Roof Tear Offs
When it comes time to replace your roof many people find it to be cheaper and less of a mess to just lay new shingles over the existing shingles. This may sound like a good idea but in reality it’s a bad one. If you continue to have issues you will end up paying for a roof replacement twice. If the roof is not being torn off then you as the homeowner are not seeing if there is any damage underneath your existing shingles. Another issue is now you have more weight on your roof because there is twice the recommended weight on your roof. It will add stress to your rafters and decking. Two layers will attract more heat to your home which inferiors the quality of the shingles. Also, on your existing shingles there is built up dark algae growth and bacteria which will now be trapped under the second layer, shortening the quality of the new shingles, and voiding all manufacturers’ warranty.
We at Valdez Roofing do complete tear offs down to the decking on all our roofing projects. It is what we recommend and what is required. Here at Valdez Roofing we are both licensed and certified so we know how important it is to follow city requirements for all our roofing projects. No need to worry about a mess in your front yard.

Roof Vent Replacement
The term “roof vent” is usually applied to everything on the roof meaning plumbing stacks, furnace vents and dryer exhausts. Roof vents are normally referred as the vents that are made to remove hot stagnant summer air and moisture during winter months out of your attics. Roof vents are important because they can determined the quality on your roof, utility costs and protecting the interior from moisture damage. Roof vents are meant to keep your home cool in the summers. If there is no ventilation going into the attic that is making you’re A/C work harder. Visit with your salesman about solar powered vents.
