Spring and Summer in Texas Can Mean Roof Damage

For our Southern and Southeastern residents, we know it's common to have a huge severe storm roll through in the Spring. Many times bringing very strong wind and large hail. We rely on roofing San Antonio for help and guidance when it comes to roof repair and replacement.

Even light hail can create damage to your roof. It's very important to try to continuously monitor the state of your roof. Hail and high winds will slowly destroy a roof, regardless of it's age. As soon as you see damage, or see shingles that have been blown off, it's time to have someone come out for a full inspection. Small damage can easily lead to large damage, including leaks that end up damaging other parts of the home.

Also keep in  mind that your gutters need to be properly maintained and cleaned. Clogged gutters can also lead to extensive damage when the water begins to sit or overflow.

Contact your local roofing company for any questions, there are different factors such as location and climate that will always come into play.

Building your own custom home can take some time, but it's your home that you get to customize the way you want instead purchasing a pre-built facility in a new neighborhood. Our Nacogdoches home builder friends have the history, and knowledge to get you through the process.

Choosing The Best Fence

It's spring time, which means the season is here for all outdoor activity. Including remodeling projects to your back yard, so perhaps you're considering a new type of fence to modernize the space. Spring also means severe weather in a lot of areas, be prepared ahead of time for potential fence repairs. 

Here are some different styles to consider, whether a small repair job or you're upgrading the front or back yard.

The classic, wooden fence. Normally one of the cheapest options of course, but there are now various styles that you're able to choose from to spruce up the yard. One of the most important aspects in terms of look, will be the stain that you choose. A vital element to protect the fence, but also give the place some color.

Picket Fence Austin provides a new, modern touch that is becoming popular throughout the United States. It used to that picture that everyone had in their head when they would purchase a new home. Start a family, get a dog, have a white picket fence.

Chain link fencing isn't always the prettiest, but it's definitely the cheapest and gets the job done. Especially useful for commercial areas, or if you are needing to protect something with barbed wire at the top of your fence.

Another option is ornamental fencing, which can provide a sense of a bigger yard and openness with the thin iron posts. We've noticed this style of fencing has become very popular in new neighborhood developments.
