Frequently Asked Questions About Roofing

Our team took some time to answer some of the most common questions about roofing that our customers have.

This varies according to the age (brittleness) of the roof and the degree of perpendicularity of the hail strike. In general, 1/2" hail or smaller will do little or no damage to most roofs, other than cracking of polyvinylchloride coatings. 3/4" hail may damage roll roofing and older composition shingles. 1" hail and larger is likely to damage most roofs, even slate.

Proper ventilation reduces energy bills, winter ice buildup and eliminates mold and mildew, which can lead to major health problems. By ventilating, you are extending the life of other building components, shingles, insulation, etc. Our hot Texas summers can destroy both a roof and its underlying decking.

First, don't confuse impact-resistant with hail-resistant; they are not the same. While it is true that insurers can now give premium discounts on new roofs using UL2218-compliant roofing, those materials may not be hail-proof, and their increased cost may not offset the discount.

The short answer: you can't. Some roofers will increase the bid to cover that deductible and rebate it to you, but that practice is illegal and we do not engage in it. Mid Cities Roofing, Inc. is a respected, permanent and local company, and we won't cheat the insurers or you.

There are many factors in addition to cost. A roof needs to be done right the first time, or you may face high repair costs and even have to have the roof entirely redone.
