Frequently Asked Roofing Questions
Punum Roofing of Houston has been repairing and replacing roofs in the greater Houston area for over fifteen years. We are proud of the craftsmanship and service we have provided for our customers over the years. Below are a few of the most common questions we see from our customers:
How long will my roofing project take to complete?
Roofing projects typically will take from 1-3 days depending on the size and extent of damage.
How much will my roofing project cost?
Costs will vary greatly depending on roof pitch, square footage, and materials used. We offer free written estimates, so you will know exactly what to expect in terms of cost before your project begins.
Do you offer financing?
We offer financing through Greensky. It is a paperless application process and offers fast approvals for your roofing project.
During my roofing project, will I need to stay somewhere else?
This is a personal preference. You can stay in your home during a roofing project, but it can get very loud. We see customers who stay at home and others who choose to stay with friends or family for a few days.
Why choose Punum Roofing over other Houston-area roofing contractors?
Punum Roofing has some of the highest certifications in several major shingle brands, including: GAF Master-Elite® Roofer, Owens-Corning Preferred Contractor and a CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ (SSM), which guarantee the highest level of customer service and craftsmanship. As part of this, a supervisor will stay on your job throughout the whole project to ensure you are happy with your roof. Finally, we don’t make you put money down, so you won’t pay until you’re happy with the work.
Do you offer emergency services for storm damage?
We offer a 24/7 call line so you can contact us as any time. We understand that damage to your roof happens at all hours, so please call us when you need us. We will send out a contractor to inspect your roof during business hours (7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.)
My roof was damaged in a storm. Will my insurance cover this?
Your insurance company will cover catastrophes and storm related damage. At Punum Roofing, we specialize in helping you maximize insurance benefits from storm damage. We can work directly with your insurance company to minimize the paperwork on your end. We are certified in Xactimate software, which is what insurance companies use to process claims, so we are very familiar with the insurance process.
How long will a replacement roof last?
Depending on the shingle brand, your roof can be warrantied for up to 50 years. GAF shingles are guaranteed for 50 years.
Do you offer warranties for roofing projects?
For repair projects, we offer a five-year workmanship warranty.
How do I know if it is time to replace my roof?
Some of the signs it is time to replace your roof include: granules in gutter downspout, grey fiberglass mat showing and raised blisters in shingle. If you think you may need a new roof, contact us today to get a free estimate.
