Roof Repair 

Residential roofs undergo a lot of wear and tear in Texas. While it’s a beautiful place to live, the between the hailstorms and heat it can pose a serious problem if your home’s roof is in need of repair. Water damage is no joke and can transform from a minor problem to a major expenditure amounting to thousands of dollars in damages if not taken care of quickly.

A leaky roof is more than a nuisance – leaks mean that water is invading your home and potentially damaging various structural elements that can be costly to fix if the leaky roof doesn’t get repaired. Water may be causing rotting, mold and permanent damage to your home long before you notice spots on the wall and ceiling.

Have you had Storm Damage or need a Roof Leak Repair

Everyone wants and needs a safe, comfortable place to live. Many home repairs can be completed in a do-it-yourself weekend project. But, there are some repairs that shouldn’t be a DIY project. One of the most dreaded home repairs is a damaged, leaky roof because finding and repairing a leak isn’t always easy.

Some of the obvious symptoms of a roof leak is discolored or sagging sheetrock, peeling paint, or an obvious drip. But, even a small unnoticed leak can cause damaged insulation, cause mold growth, and wood framing to rot. And a leak can travel and spread from the initial damaged area to a different part of your home.

Most roof leaks are caused by pretty common conditions that damage your roof.

Your roof never has a good day and Aging is inevitable. All roofing materials are subject to extreme weather conditions, like rain storms, freeze/thaw cycles , extreme temperatures, intense summer sun, which will eventually cause premature aging as well as cracking and curling of the shingles.


Brick chimneys seem sturdy, but the mortar holding the brick together and the other elements, like the flashing and chimney crown, can be easily damaged. Cracks, rust, and punctures can let water into the attic area.


Missing or damaged shingles can easily cause a leak. Usually, replacing individual shingles isn’t a big deal, but not taking the time to have it repaired can lead to more damaged shingles and more expensive repairs.


The Vents on your roof system have exposed fasteners , will sustain cracks, continue to weather and age over time.  This is a minor repair but often a common source of leaks because most vents will not out live the life of the roof.

The plumbing boot slides over a pipe to protect the junction between the pipe and the roof. And like vents and flashing, the boot can be damaged and crack and sealant can fail. The repair isn’t unusually difficult, but damage can be easy to miss.


Holes, big and small, can result from storm damage, high wind, and hail. Some holes are really obvious, while others they can be there for years until an inspection uncovers them. Even tiny holes resulting from misplaced roofing nails, removal of an antenna or dish mounting bracket, or impact related cracks in roofing materials can let in water.


A complicated, intricate roofline may be very attractive, but it is also harder to waterproof. Each joint, valley, and slope must be properly sealed. Installing and maintaining additional leak barriers may be an extra (and sometimes expensive) cost.

Gutters, if they aren’t cleaned and repaired regularly, can cause problems. Rainwater can back up behind a blockage and seep under the shingles rotting the wood underneath. 
Standing water can also damage older gutters.


Skylights present some of the same problems as chimneys and pipe vents. In addition to potential damage to the flashing, the rubber or vinyl seals around the skylights can dry out and crack, at this point the skylight needs to be replaced

Ventiliation issues can cause moisture to build up in your attic and this can present itself similar to a roof leak. Roofs must have adequate intake and exhaust ventilation to properly clear warm air and moisture from your attic space.  This can cause wood rot, mold and damaged insulation and has potential to be a very costly repair.


The best defense against roof leaks is proactively scheduling an annual roof inspection and fast action as soon as you think you may have roof damage. Maybe a new roof is in the future. But, repairing even a small, out-of-the-way drip needs to be a priority until then.

Having a reliable, dependable roof repair company that homeowners can count on is a priority, too.

Storm Damage Repair

In the metroplex we deal with a variety of weather-related issues on a regular basis. Since your roof is the most important part of your home, Rapid Roof Repair is here to help you recover from damage incurred resulting from wind, rain, ice or snow. In addition to weather, storms result in structural and roof related damage due to fallen trees, limbs or punctures. 

Wind Damage


While Asphalt Shingles, Tiles or wood shingles are manufactured and installed to withstand all kinds of weather, they have their limitations. Strong, whipping winds caused by a thunderstorm can get under shingles ripping them off your roof in an instant. This leaves you with an exposed area that can then cause further damage if left unchecked.  Even if you don’t see missing shingles or exposed areas on your roof following a storm, it is very important you request a thorough roof diagnostic. Many times, the shingles will get peeled back by the wind and then lay back down concealing areas on the roof where shingles have failed sealant strips, nail tearing, torn underlayment, and exposed decking. This can make the roofing material even more susceptible to future leaks or even more extensive damage during the next storm.

Roof Cleaning & Maintenance – Make Your Roof LAST!


When was the last time you gave your roof a tune up?

All things need cleaning and maintenance in order to function efficiently, and your roof is no different. Though easily overlooked, your roof is your home’s first defense against the elements and as such, often receives the toughest beating. Here in the Pacific Northwest, the fluctuating temperatures, coupled with heavy tree coverage and heavier rainfall means your roof has the potential to fail sooner if not maintained properly.  

  • Cleaning debris from the entire roof, behind chimneys, skylights and gutters
  • Inspecting and caulking or replacing any flashings as needed
  • Sealing all roof penetrations as needed
  • Repairing nail pops and securing loose shingles as needed

Common materials like asphalt shingles, wood shakes, or concrete tiles all suffer from common trouble areas, like around skylights, vents and chimneys. Typically, these trouble spots can be attributed to damaged flashing and sealants that are supposed to keep water out. Over time, normal weathering, moss and tree leaves can cause damage to the flashing and the shingles themselves. Shingles can crack or break and allow water into the roof layers underneath and eventually leak into the home or business.

To protect a homeowner or business owner’s investment, the National Roofing Contractors association recommends that your roof be extensively inspected AT LEAST once a year- if conducted correctly an inspection and regular maintenance program will not only add years to the life of the roof, but it will detect minor problems before the damage is widespread and costly. 

How Do You Tell if Your Roof Needs Maintenance?

As noted above, the NRCA recommends an annual inspection and maintenance. This may or may not apply to YOUR roof. The following are some factors to consider to determine if your roof needs an inspection:

  • Leaves or branches collecting on your roof and in your gutters (will eventually trap water and cause a capillary action where water tracks underneath the tiles or shingles and seeps into the home.)
  • Clogged Gutters (Gutters clogged with debris will slow drainage or cause water to backup giving it time to seep through and cause leaks.)
  • Moss and Algae growing on your roof
  • You live in a high wind area
  • Your home gets snow and ice build up on an annual basis
  • Your roof is more than 5 years old
  • You have a brick or stone chimney that is more than 10 years old
  • You have skylights that are more than 10 years old
  • The more of these factors that apply to your roof, the more often your roof will need maintenance. Even if you have none of these issues, you want to have your roof looked at every 5 years minimally.

Is Roof Maintenance Expensive?

Not when you use the Rapid Roof Repair Maintenance program. In fact we perform our initial evaluation for FREE!

Our technician will thoroughly inspect your roof and its components. They will review their findings with you. If there is any work recommended, they will discuss the options available to you. The amount of service usually ties to the factors listed above, plus the regularity of previous maintenance and the size of the roof that needs care.

What RRR’s  Roofing Service?

Our company employs a staff of highly trained technicians that are dedicated full time to roofing repair, cleaning, and maintenance. We specialize in all Roof Systems and Roof Related Components:

  • Asphalt Composite
  • Wood Shake and Shingle
  • Concrete Tile

When your home is ready for a new roof, repairs, or maintenance, you need a reliable, dependable roof repair company. You count on your roofing contractor to keep your home safe and dry. Rapid Roof Repair is committed to providing top-quality service, professionalism and workmanship.

Insurance Claims

A lot of people reach out to us after storms, don’t be shy we’re here to help. Hail, wind and storm damage are considered an insurance loss on your homeowner’s policy. Most insurance companies will pay the entire cost, less your deductible, for replacing the roof if it is damaged. The claim is also considered a natural disaster and does not count against you for future rate increases. Rapid Roof Repair specializes in accident and weather related damage repair and replacement; including exterior roofing, gutters, siding, widows; and interior painting, Sheetrock, ceiling texture, flooring, and carpet cleaning. We will help you deal with your insurance company and meet with your insurance adjuster if requested. Our involvement prevents you from getting stuck with a settlement that won’t cover your costs, or even worse, getting denied. With Rapid Roof Repair you pay no out-of-pocket expense other than your insurance deductible. We agree to accept what your insurance company will pay for the claim, including your deductible, and ensure the highest quality repair or replacement.  You may also benefit from upgrades that we typically offer as signing incentives, such as upgrading the customer from 3-tab shingles to architectural shingles at no additional charge. Our company is also one of the most credentialed roofing contractors, and our employees are trained to the highest standards.

Our Process

First, we ask that you provide us with a copy of your insurance adjusters summary report so we can review the scope of work and check all measurements to ensure all damage is fairly evaluated and reported accurately

Second, we match our contract to the work specified in the insurance adjusters summary report, including any supplements that may need to be added if the insurance adjuster missed something.

Third, we fax the signed contract to the insurance company.

Fourth, if there is a mortgage on the home, the mortgage company’s name will most likely be on the check along with yours. Most likely there will be several forms to be filled out and notarized.

Don’t Worry this isn’t our first rodeo

Insurance Claims – FAQ

How do I know if I hail damage? My roof isn’t leaking.

In a hailstorm, most hail that hits your roof and house may be too small to cause any damage. However, a percentage of the hail may be large or irregularly shaped, which can cause severe damage that may not be readily apparent and may not start to leaking for some time. It’s best to have your roof inspected by a state licensed roofing contractor to determine if you need to file an insurance claim and have an insurance adjuster assess the total amount of damage incurred.

The insurance company withheld depreciation on my roof. Will I get that money?

Yes. Most all home owners policies cover full replacement value. The first check the insurance company gives you is the Actual Value (AV); what the roof is worth today with it’s useful remaining life. The money that was withheld is call the depreciation, or technically, the Replacement Value (RV) and will be paid to you when the work is completed or most times upon the submission of a signed contract with a licensed contractor for the work specified in the insurance adjusters summary report.

Why did the insurance company withhold depreciation?

There are two reasons that the insurance companies hold some money back. The first reason is to make sure that you get the work done. Past experience has shown them that, if they give the customer all the money up front, many people end up spending it on something else. The second reason is that they wish to make sure that you pay your full deductible. The insurance companies reason that, if you are given all the money to begin with, many people would naturally try to find a contractor who would perform the job for the dollar amount in hand. By holding a retain-age amount, they can adjust the amount of the final payout based on the roofing contractor’s invoice, thus assuring that the customer does pay the deductible.

How can I avoid paying the deductible?

Legally, you can’t. Of course, a roofer in collusion with a homeowner can submit falsified invoices. However, doing so is insurance fraud. Please don’t ask us to do this.

On my paperwork, it looks like my insurance company has already deducted my deductible from the check they sent me?

When most people look at their insurance paperwork they are confused, because they think the insurance company deducted their deductible from the money the insurance company has sent them. However, the deductible is the amount that the homeowner is responsible for paying directly to the contractor. The insurance company subtracts the home owners deductible amount on the paperwork from the total amount the insurance company allows for the claim, since the homeowner will pay their deductible directly to the contractor. The balance after subtracting what the homeowner will pay directly to the contractor as a deductible, is the total amount the insurance company will actually pay for the claim.

The insurance is only paying for part of my roof, and my neighbor’s insurance company paid for their entire roof; why is my insurance company only paying for part of my roof?

No two houses receive the same amount of damage in a storm. Your neighbor may have sustained extensive damage, and you may have received none. The insurance company will only pay for the actual damages incurred. If the entire roof was not damaged, unfortunately the insurance company cannot pay for the whole roof. However, if is it border line, it always helps to have your roofing contractor inspect the roof with your insurance adjuster to accurately assess all damage to the roof. Sometimes insurance adjusters may not be able to see all the damage if they’re not able to walk on a step roof and photograph certain areas. Rapid Roof Repair ensures a helpful presence to look out for your best interest and assist the insurance adjuster if needed with damage assessment, photographs, and measurements.

Should I get several estimates?

It is always prudent to get more than one estimate. However, when insurance is paying for the work, the dollar amount of the estimate is not very important as long as it is equal to or less than the insurance company estimate. In all such cases, with Rapid Roof Repair, you will only be paying your deductible, so your cost with us will be what the insurance company pays, plus your deductible. Therefore, your decision should be based on going with the contractor that you feel most comfortable with and whom you feel will perform the best job.

What if your estimate is greater than the insurance company’s estimate?

Usually this is because of something the insurance adjuster missed in the scope of work to be completed. We can almost always work something out with the insurance company. We will submit what is called a “supplement” with documentation in the form of pictures, measurements and paperwork. The insurance company will review the supplement and upon approval, send a check for the additional monies needed to make the repairs.

About Dallas

Some Intresting Facts you might find about the city of Dallas, you can read more here ( “VisitDallas: Dallas TX Attractions & Things To Do.” https://www.visitdallas.com/. Accessed 12 Mar. 2018)(Dallas – Wikipedia.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dallas. Accessed 12 Mar. 2018):

Dallas (/ˈdæləs/) is a city in the U.S. state of Texas. It is the most populous city in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, which is the fourth most populous metropolitan area in the United States. The city’s population ranks ninth in the U.S. and third in Texas after Houston and San Antonio.[8][9] The city’s prominence arose from its historical importance as a center for the oil and cotton industries, and its position along numerous railroad lines. The bulk of the city is in Dallas County, of which it is the county seat; however, sections of the city are located in Collin, Denton, Kaufman, and Rockwall counties. According to the 2010 United States Census, the city had a population of 1,197,816. The United States Census Bureau’s estimate for the city’s population increased to 1,317,929 as of July 1, 2016.[10]

Dallas is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. From 2010 to 2016, Dallas recorded the highest net domestic migration in the country, in excess of 300,000.[11] Overall, the Dallas–Fort Worth metro area had the second largest population increase among metro areas in the U.S., which recorded a population of 7,233,323 as of July 1, 2016, an increase of 807,000 people since the 2010 census.[12] Located in North Texas, Dallas is the main core of the largest metropolitan area in the South and the largest inland metropolitan area in the United States that lacks any navigable link to the sea.[13] Dallas and nearby Fort Worth were developed due to the construction of major railroad lines through the area allowing access to cotton, cattle, and later oil in North and East Texas. The construction of the Interstate Highway System reinforced Dallas’ prominence as a transportation hub with four major interstate highways converging in the city, and a fifth interstate loop around it. Dallas developed as a strong industrial and financial center, and a major inland port, due to the convergence of major railroad lines, interstate highways, and the construction of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in the world.[14]
