We specialize in roof repair & replacement in Greater Austin
A leaky roof or damaged shingles are typically the most obvious signs of roof damage. A professional roofer can help identify the areas of your roof that need attention and determine the best plan of action.
The roof of your house is important. But it’s easy to forget how important the roof is until something goes wrong and suddenly you have water leaking into your house.
Even when there’s no evidence of roofing problems, it’s smart to have your roof inspected every year by an experienced roofing contractor.
Another time to schedule a roof inspection is after a severe storm. By taking care of basic roof maintenance and making minor roof repairs as required, you can avoid roof leaks that can damage your home and ruin your possessions.
Whether you are looking to fix a damaged roof, upgrade the look of your home with new roof installation, or replace missing or broken shingles, the expert team of roofers at Turtle Roofing of Texas can help. Our roofing services are available in and around the Greater Austin area.

Roof concerns go beyond the roofing material
When a roofing contractor evaluates the condition of your roof, the primary concern will be the roofing shingles or other finish roofing material. But before deciding whether roof repair or new roof installation is right for you, there are some other areas of the roof details that should also be inspected.
Make sure that your roofer also inspects the following elements:
- Gutters and downspouts. Basements can flood and exterior details can be damaged if gutters and downspouts don’t move water off the roof and away from the house foundation. Make sure your gutters are free of clogs. Check that downspout is connected securely. Long gutter runs need to be pitched properly to minimize overflows.
- Roof flashing. The roofing contractor should check the flashing around chimneys, vent stacks, and skylights, as well as step and valley flashing.
- Skylights. During a roof inspection, it’s also smart to inspect the glazing seals between the skylight glass and the aluminum glazing bars. Leaks in these areas can often be repaired with a special sealant.
- Roof ventilation. Soffit vents and ridge vents rarely require maintenance or repair. But gable vents can give insects and rodents access to your attic if they are not properly screened. These vents may need to be inspected from inside your attic as well as from the house exterior.
A new roof gives your house a new look
The functional condition of your roof is obviously your first priority. There are various reasons for a new roof, but many homeowners elect to have new roofing installed before the old roofing wears out, simply because a new roof can really upgrade a home’s appearance. As experienced, professional Texas roofing contractors, we can help you decide if roof replacement or installation makes sense for your needs and budget.
If you are considering a roof replacement, there are some exciting new roofing materials available – like composite shingles that look like old-fashioned roofing slates but are made from recycled rubber. And asphalt-fiberglass shingles have never looked better – especially the architectural grades that show off extra depth and texture.
Start by identifying your roofing needs
Over time, all roofs wear out and will eventually need to be replaced. If you wait too long to repair or replace the roof, you can end up with leaks and expensive damage. But replacing the roof too soon is a waste of money. It’s important to be aware of the common roofing problems and which ones should be dealt with right away.
