About

High Mountain Roofing Services

ABOUT US!

High Mountain Roofing Services, has been operating since June, 1996. I have been in the Roofing industry off and on for 44 years.

 I have roofed hundreds upon hundreds of homes myself, I can’t count them, there has been so many. From Composition, Tile, Wood Shakes, Wood Shingles, Metal, Sidewall, Flat Roofs, Hot Tar, Epdm, & Pvc.

I still enjoy getting out on the roof, from time to time. That’s real experience, and that does not include my employee’s wisdom & knowledge, which is sometimes better than mine. I got my Journeyman’s Shingler’s card through a roofers union around 1979-1980 right out of high school, I also got my Journeyman’s sheet metal workers union card around 1985. Back around 1981- 1982, I received a State Of Nevada 3rd class boilers license. I have also worked as an engineer, for a portion of my life. But roofing is in my blood, from my grandfather, father, brother, to me.

The roofing industry diffidently has changed over the last 40 years that I have been in the roofing industry. To be honest, I am not thrilled about today the way things are going, I don’t Tweet, or Facebook, I love my privacy, I am a big supporter of individual rights, I am old school, good or bad that’s who I am. I miss the old days, when the word airbag, meant your mother-in-law. Ha, Ha. Just kidding, no really. I like old cars like GTO’s,

Road Runner’s, Chargers, Mustangs, Camaro’s, you get the picture. The Innocent years, not like today. Thank GOD I still have customers, that don’t have to use the Internet; most of my business is referrals. But times are changing, even a dummy like me, can see that print media is going by the way side, unfortunately. I still like the feel of the book in my hands, it doesn’t lie to me, it is what it is! I am very humbled that even in today’s time; I still have customers, that a handshake is good enough. That’s called trust, the good old days.

I have always tried to be the best at what I do, and the most honest that I can. I can admit, that I am not the best salesman, I am not very pushy, or even the best roofer out there, among my competition, but right there. But I can admit that I am the most caring, that’s why our name has Service, in it. Because I mean it. It’s not the latest catch phrase of the day. I started this business; do to all of the shenanigans that I have personally witnessed while, working for other roofing companies, and watching my fellow compatriots throughout the years, that were not the most honest, that hired very few American Workers, would rather give American’s jobs away to cheap inexperienced workers to save a buck.

The owners did not care about your long term investment, they only cared about their bottom line, not willing to pay a worker what they are worth, and that’s a lot.

It’s damn hard work! Excuse the French, but it’s the truth. Ever wondered why most companies are corporations. They can hide behind their veil of corporation, if something goes wrong. Not here, my integrity is worth a lot. We are a Sole Proprietor; my life is in your hands. I am not afraid to stick my neck out because, I really care about our “CUSTOMERS”, and that’s no bull.

You know the old tail light warranty, the moment you can no longer see the taillights of their company vehicle, the warranty has just expired.

You won’t know if your roof was done right, until the first real heavy rain, and/ or snowstorm test’s the roof that was installed. Even then it can take a few years, to test it. I am not saying that we are the only good roofing company out there, were not! There are some good companies out there. Do your homework!

But, what set us apart, are our customer service and our experience, and knowledge, & Integrity. It’s not (Pharfannuggen). Other companies will say anything, to get the job. I rather go out of business, than lie about who I am, or what we have done.

I can honestly say, that after being in business almost 16 years, there have been very few complaints, since we have been in business, almost all have been minor. I personally walk every roof over upon its completion, to insure that the roof is done to my standards, which is very, very, high ask my employees ,I am fair with them, but will not except any less from them. I am not saying that we are perfect, not by any means, quite the opposite; there is only one LORD/ GOD who I know that is, and it’s definitely not me. One thing is for sure, the Internet is not what it uses to be, it’s very malicious, anybody can say anything about anything and it’s the gospel truth. That’s we all have discernment; use it. You are going to have to follow your heart that will usually do the trick.

Thanks for giving us here at High Mountain Roofing Services, 17 years of service. We have been operating since June, 1996. I have been in the Roofing industry off and on for 44 years.

Reno Roofing Contractors, there’s cheap and then there’s quaility.

HIGH MOUNTAIN ROOFING SERVICES

Welcome to Reno Roof Repair

Let me qualify what I mean, about Reno Roofing Contractors. This will be lengthy, but worth the read.

As I have said before, I started the business in June 1996. The reason I started High Mountain Roofing Services, was because of all of the terrible, and poor workmanship, that I have witnessed, personally by working for a lot of the companies that were, and some that are still here today. I have been a roofer, and an estimator, for a lot of them. I am not trying to impune any one company in particular. I am just stating the facts, as to how our company is ran compared to other ones. No names are mentioned, just facts.

I have worked for at least 10 different roofing companies locally. I saw what kind of workmanship was being done, and all of the problems that many of these companies were having because of their leaking roofs, a ton of law suits, shingles blowing off, (see photo’s below for the reason why). Their roofs were being installed improperly, with no ventilation, improper installation of the plywood, shingles, tile, shakes, torch down, and you name it, and I have seen it being done. Especially tearing up their landscapes, trashing their yards, and grass. Leaking oil all over their driveways, because of junky and poorly maintained equipment. Even one of the roofing contractors I previously had worked for. He uses to say, that bad publicity was good because, it still keeps your name out there. Which I have adamantly disagreed with, at that time and still do today.

Again, like I have said before, I am not saying that we are perfect. We are absolutely are not. We all know the saying, Murphy’s Law, whatever that is. Situation’s that just happen, because of the nature of the roofing business. But are precautions being taken. Do they care enough to protect your family, home, business, yards, cars, just your personal stuff, that you have worked so hard to get. Get it. Do they really appreciate your business, and take it as a blessing. Do they pay their employees top Journeymen wages, or are they being paid minimum wages, which a lot of roofers are. Everybody is out to be the cheapest roofer they can be. They will not last, I have seen it before and will see it again. Ask your self. Who do you think cares more about the company they work for, and the jobs they do? How would you feel, you ask? The ones who feels like they are being taken advantage of, which they are. Or the one who is making top wages, who should be making $150.00 to $250.00 per day, because they bust their hump, and work hard.

Since we have been in business for 17 years, I have witnessed at least, 30-40 local roofing companies, go out of business, because they run their business on the volume principle, instead of quality. Which means they have to do twice as much work, and pay minimum wages, or do something else to succeed in their business venture, possibly cut corners. You tell me! Guess who gets hurt by dissatisfied, and unhappy employee’s, who could give a rats but about your roof. It’s a job they hate, but have no choice, to work. Not saying all, but there is enough dissension, among these types of employees.

There is other unforeseen reasons why business don’t last. But the majority is their own fault. There at one time, was one of largest roofing companies in the world. Who use to do I believe around $ 500,000,000. Per year in sales. They were a volume, roofer. They would come into local towns all over the country, and set up their satellite office’s, and would go were the work was. They would come into these towns and destroy the local roofing economy, by bidding stuff so cheap that, local guys would eventually go out of business. They did not last. There is no guarantee I, or anyone of the other roofing companies will be here next year. But it won’t be because I screwed my customer’s over, and did a lousy job. I can hold my head high, knowing that I did the best job possible while I was in business. Never will I be ashamed. Proud of what we have accomplished.

The moral of this story is, cheap is what you will get. Also ask the company were their main office is. If it is not at least in Nevada, preferably Northern Nevada, please don’t use them. Keep our kids fed locally, and the monies in our local community.

A lot of our local roofing contractors also use the volume principle. Ask your self, how long before, if sometime in the future, you should have a future problem, and you make that call. And nobody is there to answer the phone. Then what. I am not saying that all of these types of situation will lead to their failure. But I have seen a lot, come and go. They either don’t make enough money to keep the doors open, or they are shut down, by lawyers, the contractor’s board, or are ran out of the area.

I believe that most all of the roofing contractors, have maybe a spread of 2-3% cost difference of prices that they pay for materials, among themselves right! Look at this example. I recently roofed a home in the Sparks area. The homeowner could not believe the price difference between the 6-7 bids she received. Lets take a look. The prices were as followed. It was a tear-off, re sheet, and a 30-year roof. Let’s for keepsake, say the roof was between 30-40 squares.

They started at  $9000.00,11,000,13,000,15,000,16,000, 18,000 and 28,000. Ask your self why. We were the price in the red. The materials were well above $ 7000.00. Then you have to include, labor, and dump fees, and insurance, over head-operating costs. The first (3) had to be cutting corners, and using cheap inexperienced labor, and the volume theory. You tell me! The one at the top was just going to rip her off. We are generally in the middle, most of the times. Depending upon the job, and its difficulty, and how much we have to pay our employees.

Composition Shingle, Wood Shake, Tile, Metal Roof Reapirs, Flat Roofs.
There’s (3) blue lines on this shingle. You only have 1/2 inch to put the nails into. It’s the bottom lines, where the shingles overlap.

Composition Shingle, Wood Shakes, Tile, Roof Reapirs, Flat Roofs.

Between the yellow lines is where the nails have to be. Most customers have no ideal as to how much, there is to installing a proper roof.

Most of the shingles have such a small margin of error, where the shingles get nailed into the nail line. Most shingles only have about a half of an inch were the (6) nails must go, to meet code and the warranty of the shingle manufactures, for a high wind region. Nevada is in a high wind region. Takes special nailing for the area.Look at these photo’s, you can see the one in the blue lines, is about a half inch. The other one is a little over an inch. Look at the photos you can see where the shingles overlap, that’s all the space you have, to insure a proper roof installation.Ask yourself, why do new roof’s blow off, and leak. Its do to poor workmanship, and inexperienced roofers, or they just don’t care, like I said previously.

This is a true story. Happened about 12 or so years ago. I had received a call, from a woman in Washoe Valley.The woman had called and needed, a quote for a roof. Long story short. I looked at the roof, and said Oh My God. What an abortion, excuse the terrible word. It was a very strange house. Many ad-dons, the roof was very difficult to do, needless to say. After I measured the roof. When I went down to talk to the homeowner, I had told her the roof looked brand new, she said it was. She proceeded to explain to me, that the roofer, who screwed up the roof, was one of the cheapest prices she had gotten.

She said the roof leaked worse than before. She was suing them at that time. I told her, I would give her a bid, which I did. When I had called her back, to discuss the bid. She asked why I was so high. I told her you have a mess, I would have to tear-off the new roof, and completely replace it. Short story, she called another roofer excepted a cheaper price then mine, again. A couple of months had gone by, I received a call from her again. She proceeded to explain to me, and begged me to come out and put her roof on.

She would accept my price. A second roofer screwed the roof up worst than the first one did. She was suing them both. I said no way, thank you anyway. I told her from the beginning, what it would take, to install their very complicated roof. But you wanted the cheaper roofer’s price instead. Again I told her politely no! I felt terrible for her, and her husband. But I did not want to get involved with her problems, and the lawsuits. I said thank you anyway, but I can’t, talked for a few more minutes and hung up. Don’t know what took place. Cheap is cheap, quality is quality. They are not the same, and cannot be. I am not unequivocally stating that all cheap roofing prices you get. That your roof will wind up in a disaster of a roof, like the lady’s above. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. I am not  saying that we are the only Roofer in Reno, that cares about their customers.Were not, there are some good guys. But we are the only one I know, who’s name has service in it Buyers beware; ask your family and friends, and neighbors for referrals. These are the most reliable and honest, you can get.

We hope, you will allow us, put a roof on that you can count on, for many years to come.

Please call, if interested; ask for David (775) 322-7003

The economy will never come back as long as the construction industry is down, especially for Reno Roofing Contractors!

HIGH MOUNTAIN ROOFING SERVICES

Welcome to Reno Roof Repair

The economy will never come back as long as the construction industry is down, especially for Reno Roofing Contractors!

As long as I have been able to recall. The construction industry is what has driven this economy.The construction industry is the balance wheel of the economy. You tell me one thing that construction has not touched. It was  the contractors who purchased the new work trucks, tractors, motorcycles, backhoes, trailers, tools, cars, jewelry, houses, and boats, r.v’s. They remodeled yours and my homes. They took vacations, every (6) months. They spent their monies all over the world. They are what drove the home improvement companies, stores and industry, which made them thrive, and rich. They kept the restaurants going, by eating out every day for lunch. Millions upon millions kept the restaurants thriving. And all of the malls. Buying there, shoes and clothes as they fell apart, every few weeks, and months. They bought every thing you can think of. They kept the bars, and other illicit things going strong. Unfortunately  these things also thrived, not one thing did they not touch.

They used concrete, lumber, wiring, sheet-rock, roofing, paint, carpet, cabinets, tiles, hardwood, plumbing, windows, doors, all kitchen appliances.  There is not one thing they were not involved in, and / or purchased. They kept the health care industry thriving. That’s why a lot of the industry is suffering today, nobody is getting hurt. That’s the good point, but you get the drift. There were so many different kinds of contractors, which put their money back into each of the local economies. Again, roofing, painting, plumbing, dirt work, concrete, framers, carpet, tile, landscapers, electricians, drywall, windows, h.v.a.c. Forgive me if I forgot to mention your trade. Every one of them is what kept this country, and this economy alive and well.

Now let’s go, where no one likes to go, because of political correctness. But I love to be political incorrect. It’s just my nature. That’s why I appreciate the Founding Fathers, and their foresight. Our last bastion of hope, the 1st Amendment, and the Constitution.

OK, ready to go for a ride. Why has this government, allowed the millions upon millions of Latino immigrants, as well as others, to come across the border, with no impunity? You ask, me too! Since I have been in the construction industry, I have watched the wages of the construction industry, fall and fall. They have fallen back to the 70’s wages. You ask why? Well first, my fellow contractors, of all trades went for the cheap, labor. They carry a lot of the burden, as to why the industry collapsed, because of their greed. They cared mostly about their own bottom lines and not about their fellow man, nor their employees. Not all, but what I have witnessed, most.

I use to listen to the lying, filthy, belligerent, back stabbing media, lying about the percentage of the immigrants, which were in the construction trades. They were bought and paid to say what they say, by the way. They would say owe, maybe 20, 30 percent.  Hog wash. Every job I drove to, or track of housing I would visit. You would see 80%, – 90 % of immigrants, in all trades. I felt quite out of place as a Caucasian. Even though, I have quite a variety of heritage in my blood.

Now let me qualify, that I am guilty as well. But not what you think. As far as I know, I never, put anyone on my payroll that wasn’t legal. Did I use, some of the laborers, at out local place to pick them up, yes I did. But it wasn’t about the cheapest guy I could find. I got people to help that I needed.To help clean up the grounds. Some times to help take the roof off. But never, were there any untrained, roofers, installing your roofs.

That did not meet my professional standards, installing your roofs, and / or doing any important part of the roof. And for any laborer, I used, far and few between. If I used any, there were (2) journeymen to watch over the laborer, which were used. But they were always well paid, and were supplied with lunch. Always, well cared for. No matter were they were from. I didn’t use anyone because the color of their skin. I made sure whomever were kept safe, no matter who I used. I am not saying I am a saint, I am not. I love my country. And was just not willing to give it away.

Still today. I refuse to sell my country to cheap labor. Here goes the hard part, that might alienate my customers, but it is what it is. They also are partially to blame. They also would take to lowest and cheapest price they could get. Which is the normal thing to do, if you don’t understand what you are going to get, for your cheap money, trouble. Ask all of the lawyers, they love cheap labor. Made them rich.

And the most culpable one of them all. Is the federal and local government’s? Lets start with our local officials. They are all guilty of allowing, all of these contractors, to come into each one of our local communities. And allow every set of plans to be accepted, and built. There was not one set plans they did not love. No matter how many people complained, and / or said no thanks. They have run all of the work out, way to soon. If it had been managed properly, we still would be steadily growing a maybe a 3-4 % growth annually. There would still be jobs today. The construction industry would still be a viable one.

This is also what drove all of the immigrants, to come over here because we could not keep up with the labor needed, to do all of the jobs that were here. I don’t call them all illegal, because I don’t know if they all were, but I am sure most were. And of course, if you were starving, and had 2,3,4,5,6 children to feed, you would take any wages offered too. It is really not there fault. As much as are own country is at fault. We would have all done the same thing, if we were hungry, and if in there same position. The immigrants should never have taken any less, then an American worker. It drove the typical construction worker out of their job. Because they could not compete against the cheap immigrant labor, and the contractor’s cheap prices, which destroyed the industry, and the wages of Americans workers, I might add.

I also vividly remember one of the contractors, down the hall from my office. He had ice, come in. They found most of his workers to be illegal; and got fined $ 20,000 I believe he said. That will scare you straight, if you have any brains.

Lets take another approach to what killed the industry, and allowed the wages to fall like it did. Our kids today graduating out of college, I believe there is a drop out rate all over the country, probably averaging 50-60 percent. You ask why? I will tell you why. The kids of today, and of this generation our lazy. Because they are taught, by the apostate schools, and of this government, that if you are a roofer, plumber, electrician, painter at heart, you aren’t with spit. They are all taught to be dependent upon this government, and every assistance they can get their hands on. They are brain washed as to think they are all to good to be roofer, plumber, sheet rocker, carpet layer,  a contractor. You get the point. They are taught that unless they are from the Silicon Valley elite, they are a piece of crap.

They are made to feel like, if you are a construction worker, or anything other then the ones, who touch, use, and / or build computers, and if you are not like minded, you just are not worth being part of the upper echelon. Lets cut to the truth, GOD did not create us all equally, thank GOD. There are humans, like me that need to work, and build stuff with my hands. I never have liked school. I took first year, of college. To take accounting, and business classes. But hated them. We are not all going to be a doctors, lawyers, engineers, and / or programmers. This is the false hood of the governments plan to make this generation to believe they have no worth. I love to be a roofer, and a contractor.

I hate what it has become today, because of the governments over reaching hand, on all business and contractors today, local and federal.

If there were not people like me, the elite would not be able to take dump in their toilets, they would still be crapping outside in a hole, get it? I love what I am. GOD gave me the gift to build things. I am a jack-of-all-trades. I have been an engineer for a portion of my life. But would rather be of the construction trades. I love to, build and it makes me feel good, when I see something I have built with the hands, that GOD gave me. I don’t have a smart phone, never will.I like to think for myself, gee what an ideal. I use my smarts GOD gave me. I don’t need approval from every one else to feel good about myself. I am what I am, and proud of it. I don’t feel bad, that I don’t have to have the latest and greatest, newest phones, and the latest gadget. Don’t care if some ones look down at my phone. Owe my god; my phone is 5-6 years old. I bought other things of worth. Don’t get suckered into the lies of today.

GOD made you in his perfect image. Young kids of today,follow your heart. If you don’t want to go to school. It’s OK not to be indebted, up to thousands and  ten’s of thousands of dollars. And it’s OK if you don’t want to be there. Build something, start a business of your own. Don’t ask for approval of your family and supposed friends, do what’s right, create. You have the talent, you just can’t be afraid to fail. We are fumble and stumble. It’s o. K.

Also don’t be afraid to believe in, GOD. Not the system, which is lying to you. The LORD JESUS CHRIST is the final word. Ask him for guidance; he will guide you into what you were created for. We are all here for his GLORY, not or own. If you are doing what he created you for, you will succeed at that endeavor no matter what it is. You will also have peace, and know, you have done what you are created for. Go for it.

P.S. Of course, I am not trying to impugn other trades and / or jobs, they all contribute to our economy. They are all  just as important, as the construction trades. But like I said above. I don’t believe without construction, our country is doomed for failure. And will never come back.

The economy will never come back as long as the construction industry is down, especially for Reno Roofing Contractors!

The Internet reviews, of Reno Roofing Contractors are a farce!

HIGH MOUNTAIN ROOFING CONTRACTOR

Welcome to Reno Roof Repair

This blog, was caused by a  review search , I did on our business.Which caused me to write this blog, The Internet reviews,of Reno Roofing Contractors are a farce! 

Most all of these  business review sites are worthless, and full of lies, and speculation. They no nothing about me. Or the success of our business. There criteria is a bunch of crap. Do not believe these sights. There might be one or two legitimate sights. But the rest are, just causing problems, for innocent businesses.There are to many sights to list, but they are all lazy, uneducated  idiots.

What do I mean you ask? Well as a business owner for the last 17 years, I have been able to witness the fall of newspapers, phone books, and most media that you can hold in your hands. The majority of our business has come from friends, referrals, and family. It really disheartens me, to see how uniformed the public has become. Every thing on the Internet has to be true right? A billion websites and counting. How much is truth, you ask? You tell me! Come on people, wake up. Everyone, everybody, every living thing that breathes on earth is out to make a buck, on every body else, and or their business on the net. There’s nothing wrong with making money, but at what cost? Boy that’s real creative. Took a lot of brainpower to use somebody elses, right? Get a life; let’s see you start a real business from scratch, not off of somebody elses success. You are all like a bunch of leeches, yes I am talking about these review sites. I probably will even lose business, just because I dare speak my mind. It is what it is. I will always speak my mind.

And they don’t care if they destroy somebody’s reputation or not. He’s rated at 78% or whatever, don’t have a clue about the business, should be 98-99%. This was one of the ratings, on a site I reviewed.Or they just drive business away, because people believe these uniformed, dumbed down sites. I could go to everyone one of these suppose accredited sites, and talk up or down about my competitors, and the public would believe it. What a joke. Oh they all say they have their own criteria. They say we have 10 reasons why we rate this company, hogwash. They don’t know my business from (@x**), from shinola. Excuse the french, but truth is truth. Their just out to make money on mine and your name, good or bad.

We have been in business like I have stated above for 17 years. And we love to be one of Reno’s Roofing Contractor’s. I have had 1-2 small complaints at the Nevada State Contractors Board. Which were proven to be false. I am not saying we have a perfect record; we don’t, and never will. There is only one GOD who is perfect and he is my FATHER JESUS CHRIST, the one and only true perfection, that I aspire to be like, but fall on my face every day, failing him, with a broken heart. But get back up and keep trying, to no avail. It’s hard to survive in such a crazy, anti JESUS world that we live in today.

The only thing I can do is the right thing. Take care of our customers, and service them with, love and integrity, as CHRIST would have me do. I don’t wear a cross, around my neck; I don’t have a fish on my site. I have a cross, I carry every day in my heart and that’s a workout in it’s self. It’s not bragging that I am a Christian, or putting a fish on my site, or say that the company is a Christian company. Give me a break. It’s how you and I live our lives behind closed doors. Now theirs a struggle. Try doing that. Live your life when no ones watching. Except GOD, and his SON JESUS CHRIST, looking at every breath and step we take. Now there’s a wake up call! And the persecution, which comes from the world, is astounding to me. I never thought just because I love JESUS, my life would be under so much persecution. But JESUS commands me to be the salt and light of the earth. His truth and light must shine, at all costs, including my life. (Matthew 5:14-15) Don’t ask, unless you are Born Again, you will never understand, but I digress (John 14:6), (John 3:3), (John 3:5-7).

  I have strived for 17 years to have an A+ rating, because I care. I am not accredited, not because I don’t meet BBB, criteria. They have called me at least 10 times in the past, wanting to accredit my business, plus $ 500.00 bucks. Get it, make a buck, and keep their jobs. It’s because I am not willing to give them $ 500.00 bucks to have them say how great we are. They are a great, company but, the money issue, to have to be accredited, is a joke. If it was, what they say it was, they would do the research for free, and accredit companies for free, if they meet their criteria. Which we always have.

These website’s that all claim to know me, they don’t. My thousands of happy customers do. They can only conjure up what they can find off of the net, right?And that’s supposed to the be, the be all end all. They are just trying to make the almighty buck, whether they damage your reputation or not. Or they can say good things about you business, and bump your ratings up, if you agree to pay for their services.Get it?And if you don’t whoa unto you, and your business. By the way, I don’t know of any thing good or bad  thing’s on the web, about our business. Most of the sites have me with no reviews, that’s OK with me, and don’t care.Unfortunately, a lot of potential customers, might. Also the search engines, are the same. Oh they have their criteria too! According to them, I am not worthy to be searched, because I don’t comply, and or pay for their services. They make it almost impossible, to get on the front page, unless you give them your blood.

I know what kind of business I run, Imperfect, but striving to be. I just don’t like what the web has become. It’s almost considered a crime if you don’t Facebook, or Tweet. And if you don’t belong one of these thousands of supposed other great and honest sites, read (Romans 1: 24-32) nosy, lying, back biting, hate full malicious gross, JESUS hating, supposed family sites. Oh my GOD, call homeland security, somebody will. Take him to mental hospital, something is wrong with him. Oh how I dare speak the name JESUS, whom I so love, and admire. You just can’t be an old-fashioned fellow, who happens to miss the old innocent years, gone by. GTO’s’, Mustangs, Camaro’s, Charger’s, you get the drift.  When air bag, meant your mother-in-law. I know. I love my mother-in-law, by the way. It’s just a joke.Who liked the country when it was a free country? Not when every keystroke, web search, you looked at has been logged, categorized or just plain snooped on.

What happened to the (2) greatest commandment’s? To love GOD with all your heart, mind and soul. And the second is to love your neighbor, as your self. Not destroy, snitch, gossip, or talk bad on the net about each other. It is hard enough in today’s business climate to just make it through another day. Without, everyone else out there, talking bad, or trashing your company. We all need to step back, and take a long look at where this country is going. And in my opinion, it’s going down the drain. The constitution has all but been used for toilet paper.

I know this is supposed to be a blog about roofing. And in a round about way it is. I just wanted to use my 1st amendment rights, while I am still able to. Which in my opinion is just about gone.

By the way, I hate Blogs. But I guess, you almost have to have one today.I am being forced to participate in this crazy, medium. If I had my druthers, I would never be on the net. I am way to old fashioned.  But please come back. I promise I will continue to have more roofing related stuff, to talk about in the future. Oh by the way, I hope we still are your local Hometown Reno Roofing Contractor, for many years to come.

Oh by the way, I love animals. These are my mutt’s.Composition Shingle, Roof Repairs, Tile, Metal, Wood Shake, Flat Roofs.

Welcome to Reno Roof Repair

 

There are so many types of flats roofs in the Reno, Carson, Tahoe area.We are your Reno Roofing Contractor, Flat Roofing Specialists, Reno Roof Repair!

There are a lot of different types of materials, which can be used on flat roofs. Modified Bitumen has been around a long time. It pretty much took the place of the old stinky hot tar kettle, you have all smelled, while the roof was being installed. Or a truck pulling the kettle down the road to the next job, smoking away. Bilging white smoke, drifting off into the air, stinking your car up as you tried to pass the truck, cursing at it. You know you have all been there.

This is one of the reasons; the kettle is going by the wayside, as sometime in the future, I am sure Modified Bitumen will do the same thing. PVC, EPDM, all types of rubber roofing, is slowly replacing it. Rubber roofing is great technology, but I still prefer the old stand by torch down. It can be applied on almost all flat roofs. Carports,all flat roofs, be it, apartments, houses, commercial building. Just about anything you can think of, on flat roofs.

I have even used for decking application. This is not the best application, but it works well, as long as it doesn’t have allot of, furniture or traffic, on the deck. It also takes an expert to make it work. There are some, real good roofers still installing the torch down system. Generally a single layer of torch down/ modified bitumen, will last for approximately 10-12 years, depending upon the pitch and application of the roof. The better the roof pitch, the longer it will last. I just put a roof on a few months back in 2012, that I personally roofed in 1997.It was starting to leak. So we finally had to replace it. Sixteen years is, pretty darn good, for torch down. You can put (2) layers of the same material, which will last for approximately 20 years.

At this present time we will still using Modified Bitumen, we love the material. We use Polyglass Modified Bitumen, which happens to be a local supplier, which is made in Fernley, Nevada, keeping it local. It also comes in many colors. Blue, green, black, gray hues. In a smooth finish, and also a granulated finish similar to roofing shingles.

Again if you have any type of flat roof, and old mission style home, with mansard, carports, commercial, apartments, we can roof it. And give you an excellent roof for many years to come. This is what a granulated flat roof membrane looks like. The color is white. So if you have an existing shingle roof, and have a flat roof that ties into your shingle roof. Composition Shingle, Wood Shingle, Flat Roof, Tile, Metal, Roof Repairs.We can match the flat roof, with the color of your existing shingle roof, real close. More pictures will be uploaded in time. I will go back and take pictures of old roofs we have done, and any new ones we do.
