For All Your Composition Roofing Needs
Whether you need a brand-new composition roof or your current composition roof needs a repair, M & M Roofing, Siding, & Windows is ready to begin work on your home. Our core team has remained much the same since we opened our doors in 1983, and that continuity is apparent in the high degree of skill we bring to your composite roofing project. Plus, our GAF Master Elite Contractor status means that you can feel confident in the workmanship of your new roof.
The Hand-Nailing Difference
M & M Roofing, Siding, & Windows is proud to be one of the last composition roofing companies to still hand-nail composite shingles (in select areas). This method best benefits our customers by guaranteeing the right amount of pressure and proper placement of the nails. We do not use nail guns – we’ve seen the problems that nail guns can cause in composition roofing projects: shooting through roofing shingles or creating holes in roofing shingles in just a few years. This is just another way we truly set ourselves apart from our competitors when it comes to composition roofing projects.
We’re Number One in Composition Roofing
Our deep Texas roots over the nearly four decades we’ve been in business have led us to install more than 30,000 residential roofs to Texas homeowners. When we offer you a warranty, you can take it to the bank that we will be around to honor it, unlike storm-chasing contractors that seek out those insurance claim dollars. Because we live and work right here in the Texas communities that we serve, we have a vested interest to get it right every time. To that end, our company owner contacts each roofing customer at the conclusion of the job to ensure it was done according to specifications. You just can’t find that level of commitment to excellence with another residential roof replacement contractor here in Texas.
Types of Composition Shingles
There are many factors that contribute to the durability of composite roofs. First, composite shingles are made from a mix of materials, typically a combination of resin-bonded or laminated fiberglass, plastic, polyester, and paper. When mixed, these materials create high-strength and durable shingles.
Thanks to their composition, these types of shingles do not crack, split, peel or deform. They also offer a high level of fire and impact resistance, helping to prevent damage from hail and other hazards. Additionally, composite shingles resist fading caused by sun exposure, allowing them to maintain their flawless appearance for the future.
Selecting shingles for your roof replacement may seem like a no-brainer. After all, to the untrained eye, all residential roof shingles look similar. In reality, a new roof is a major investment, and it’s important to weigh the pros and cons when choosing your materials.
Composition roofs generally come in three different types: 3-tab shingles, laminated shingles, and premium shingles.
3-tab shingles are the least expensive roofing systems you can purchase and are also the easiest to maintain. They are made up of three individual tabs that are about 12 inches wide.
Laminated Architectural Shingles
Laminate shingles are nearly identical to 3-tab shingles, except they are considered an upgrade from 3-tab shingles since they feature a second layer fused at the base of the shingle. This layering structure doubles its thickness and increases its overall durability. Laminate shingles will also typically have more extended warranties than 3-tab shingles.
