Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I need a new roof?

Older roofing shingles and wood shakes normally have a 15- to 30-year lifespan depending on the shingles' quality, how well the roof was installed originally, and wear and tear due to weather.
Check for these warning signs:

  • Loss of the asphalt granules
  • Leaking or signs of leaking inside your home
  • Broken or cracked shingles
  • Curling or missing shingles
  • Missing or rusted flashing

If your roof is over 10 years old we recommend you call us so we can send one of our home exterior experts out for a FREE INSPECTION. Sometimes the damage isn't visible from the ground and catching it early is key to avoiding costly damage to your home.

How much does a new roof cost?

The short answer is, we won't know until we come out and take a look.
DONT WORRY though, we make the process as easy as possible. We will come out and measure your roof for FREE. No obligation, you do not have to be home and you will only need to answer a few questions (so we know your material and color preferences).

Don't choose your roofing contractor on price alone. Price is something to consider but not the only factor. If you hire the cheapest roofing company it could end up costing you a lot more later on. Quality material and workmanship have value.

Is there anything I need to do before the roof replacement starts?

  • Park your cars in the street or garage if possible. The trucks need to back up close to the house. You'll save your tires from nails and your car from dust as well. We will run a magnet after the job is done.
  • Keep pets inside. Pets can be upset by the roofers on their homes.
  • Move items that may be damaged by falling debris; BBQ grill, yard decor, etc.
  • Let your project manager know if you have any items that may be damaged that can not be moved such as flower beds or shrubs. We have a net system in place to protect your property.

Will Morgan & Myers Roofing and Exteriors help me with my insurance claim process?

Yes, we work closely with all insurance companies to make sure the claim goes as smoothly as possible.

Am I going to have to pay my deductible?

Yes, because in 2019, Texas passed a law stating that roofing contractors who offer to waive a homeowner's deductible on their insurance policy could be charged with a Class B Misdemeanor.
This makes it a criminal offense for a roofing contractor to pay for, waive, absorb, rebate, offset, etc. an insurance deductible.
We have SEVERAL FINANCING OPTIONS available to ensure that you are able to get the work done properly and legally.
