How long is your warranty on asphalt shingle roofs?

There are two warranty’s to consider when purchasing a roof installation.  A material defect warranty and a labor warranty against leaks.  The manufacturers carry the material defect warranty and they range from a limited 25 years up to a limited 50 years.  The products and processes incorporated into the roofing system will “define limited”.  The workmanship warranty against leaks will range from 1 year up to 25 years.  Our typical roof replacement with a GAF or Owens Corning composition shingle will carry between a 10 year and 25 year workmanship warranty backed by the manufacturer.   All of the warranty coverages are determined by clients choices in product and processes.  The more you incorporate, the longer the warranty.

Do you repair leaking chimneys?

Yes, we do fix leaking chimneys. If you have a brick or stone chimney there is a very good chance that it may start leaking from this event. Porous materials will soak up water and once they reach a point of saturation they will begin to release that water. This is a very common issue when we have consistent rain for 2-3 days or more. The only thing that can be done to stop the leaks is to wrap the entire chimney in plastic or a tarp. Once the brick has been dried out it can be sealed.  There could certainly be a an issue with the flashing as well. However, if it didn’t leak before the storm there is a good chance it is a saturation problem and not a flashing issue.

Do you install solar attic fans?

Yes, we install solar powered attic fans regularly during both roof replacements as well as retrofit into existing roofs. There are several of brands available including Attic Breeze, GAF, Lomanco, Airvent, and others.

do you finance?

I’ve called my insurance company about storm damage to my roof, they have not called yet to make an appointment, I would like you here before them can you make it?

We will be more than happy to inspect prior to their arrival. A pre-inspection is a good idea to discuss the process and start preliminary discussions on roofing products.  Once your adjuster communicates a time and date we will meet with the adjuster and assist them with the inspection.  If the damage warrants coverage, we will use this time to agree on what job site variables need to be included in the adjustment. jb

How can I prevent black mold from forming on my composition shingles?

Commonly found predominately on tree covered or the west and northern slopes of roofs along the gulf coast, blue green algae is very tough to treat.  During a new roof installation it is important to select an Algae/Fungus guard feature that is factory applied. The manufacturer will install a variable ratio of zinc or copper coated granules in the color granule blend.  Most manufacturers will warrant against algae/fungus growth for 10 years as it is a living organism that adapts to its environment. Some manufacturers, have a coating designed to weather over time that will change the ratio of zinc/copper exposure and will warrant against algae growth for an extended period of time.  This new technology is relatively new (5-6 years) and the verdict is still out.

Zinc strips installed under the top course of shingles is a time tested method as well. This will typically lead to streaking at the lower sections of the roof.  Due to these inconsistencies we do not install.

Treating after the fact can be done with a 3-1 water to 3% bleach ratio. This can be sprayed on the roof with a manual pump sprayer.  It is important to wet plants surrounding the area to be treated.  We recommend this be done by a roofing professional as bleach can be very slippery and when combined with the height of most roofs can propose a serious fall hazard.  This is a temporary treatment that will kill the blue green algae for a couple of years. There are other products available on the market that we do not have adequate history with to comfortably recommend.

What is the warranty for steel roofs?

There are numerous types, profiles, manufacturers, and other non-product related variables that will determine how long of a warranty a steel based roofing product will come with.  Typically, a prefinished (painted) finish will come with a 20 year paint finish warranty as well as a 20 year corrosion warranty. However, if installed within a certain proximity of salt water this warranty will likely not be available.  Some of the Stone Coated steel products such as Gerard or Decra-Bond offer a 50 year warranty.  These products do not carry many of the limitations that a pre-finished steel product will contain.

do you get a wpi 8 certificate?

Certain exterior construction projects require inspections to ensure that the assembly meet the Texas Department of Insurance Windstorm requirements in coastal counties.   Our detailed proposal will indicate if your project and/or scope requires the inspections.  If the project does require them we will make arrangements to have the project inspected.  The state will issue a WPI-8 as evidence of compliance with applicable installation requirement.  The State does not send paper copies any longer and it will have to be obtained using their site.  Any customer of Brinkmann Quality Roofing Services can contact us and we will pull, print and scan/fax to client.

does your company offer roof maintenance and if so how often should it be done?

We perform roof maintenance on most types of roof systems and the type of maintenance to be performed can vary slightly to each type. Maintenance activities will include refreshing all adhesives on the roof, cleaning debris out of valleys, from behind the chimney, and out of gutters. All penetrations on the roof will be inspected for wear and tear or damage by critters.  The roof planes will be walked to inspect for damage by falling debris, fasteners backing through the roofing material, and to asses for general condition of the roofing material.  Roof maintenance should be performed annually.  Spring tends to be the best time to perform routine maintenance as leaves are finished falling and storm season is right around the corner.  Finding and addressing a roof issue is much cheaper and less intrusive before it happens as opposed to after it has failed.

Do you repair Tile Roofs? I have replacement tiles and need someone to replace several tiles and re-cement?

We perform repairs and replacements on both clay as well as concrete tile roofs.  It is good practice to keep and extra square of field tiles as well as 15-20 hip/ridge tiles for future repairs.  If we you don’t have enough extra tiles we can utilize existing tiles from less conspicuous areas on the roof for the repair and install new replacement tiles in less conspicuous areas.  If your roof is installed in a high wind zone alternative fastening options might be necessary for repairs.

Often times high rafters will cause high spots in the roof plain that will not affect the performance of the roofing product. Send email to and we will advise.

I can see daylight in my attic where a pvc plumbing pipe comes up through the wood. Is this a potential leak?

It very well could be a possible source of water infiltration. If you have plastic/neoprene plumbing flashings on top of your roof and you see daylight, it is likely where the neoprene has cracked or dry rotted. These flashings need to be replaced. Seeing light at HVAC/FURNACE penetrations is very likely as these typically contain a three part assembly that does not require an air tight seal to be leak free. An annual maintenance inspection would address these issues.

5 Signs It’s Time to Get a New Metal Roof

A metal roof is a fantastic investment for any homeowner. Metal roofing is aesthetically appealing and well-known for its superior durability. According to State Farm, metal roofing usually lasts 40–70 years. Throughout these years, it’s important to look for signs that it’s time to call a metal roofing contractor. Let’s take a look at a few different signs to look for.

1. You See Serious Leaking

It’s common to see a leak here and there if the seams need to be adequately sealed or the seal wears out. However, if you notice one leak after another, then it may be time for a new metal roof. A professional can evaluate your roof to determine if it’s time for a replacement or a small repair.

2. You See Corrosion or Rust

Metal roofs receive a special coating to help prevent rust. However, they may not be ultimately able to resist corrosion. If homeowners don’t follow a regular maintenance schedule to re-coat their roof, then it’s likely to rust long before it’s been forty years. Contact a professional at the first sign of rust to determine if you need a new metal roof.

3. You See Significant Damage

Metal roofs are durable, but they can still experience damage. It’s common to see a metal roof damaged from a hail storm or large branches falling on the roof. These can both cause dents in the metal. Minor dents are usually not a problem. Large dents can make your roof less effective, and you’ll probably need to discuss a replacement with metal roofing contractors.

4. You Remember Your Roof’s Age

As previously mentioned, the typical metal roof will last at least 40 years. It’s essential to schedule annual or biannual inspections once your roof hits this age limit. It would be best to start planning for a replacement soon in case your roof shows signs you need a new one. Usually, homeowners opt to have a new roof installed by the time their roof reaches 50 years old, so they don’t have to deal with the inconvenience of their roof failing.

5. You See Sagging

A sagging roof indicates that there is severe structural damage. The support beams may have been damaged during a storm or if something heavy fell on your roof. This requires immediate attention from metal roofing contractors. Your roof may cave in if the problem is not repaired promptly.

Your metal roof is bound to need replacing eventually. Homeowners who notice these signs should contact local metal roofing contractors for a thorough inspection. Give us a call at Brinkmann Quality Roofing Services to schedule an appointment today!

What Makes Metal Such a Great Roofing Material?

Traditionally, metal roofing has been used for commercial buildings or warehouses. However, over the last decade, it has been surging in popularity with homeowners. According to Allied Market Research, as of 2020, the metal roofing market had a value of $23.8 billion. By 2030, this number is expected to increase to $33.5 billion. If you’re in the market for a new roof, read along as a metal roofing contractor explains some of the reasons why metal is such a great roofing material.


It Can Last a Long Time


Metal roofing is extremely durable and long-lasting. When properly cared for, in our experience, it can last upwards of 50 years. Some metal roofs will last your entire lifetime. This is beneficial because replacing a roof is a huge and costly project. Minimizing the number of times you have to do this in your lifetime is ideal for many homeowners.


It Can Be Recycled and Made From Recycled Materials


Are you interested in minimizing your impact on the environment? Metal roofing can be made from recycled metal. Once a metal roofing contractor informs you that your metal roof is at the end of its lifespan, it can be removed and recycled again. Choosing metal for your roof helps to keep roofing materials out of crowded landfills.


You Can Customize It


Metal roofing is one of the most customized roofing materials currently on the market. You can purchase metal panels, metal sheets, metal shingles, or metal tiles. The metal can be powder-coated or painted in a wide array of colors. It can be insulated with spray foam, or it can be coated using specialized coating products. Your metal roofing contractor can help you customize a metal roof so that it meets the needs of your household based on your climate and aesthetic goals.


Metal roofing has many unique benefits that set it apart from other roofing materials currently on the market. If you’re in need of a new roof and want to learn more about metal roofing, a metal roofing contractor can answer any questions you may have.

The Top 3 Reasons to Upgrade to Solar Roofing

Whether you’re looking to protect the environment or to improve your personal financial situation, investing in solar roofing can be a great choice. Given the many benefits, it should come as no surprise that the solar roofing product market is projected to reach roughly $965 million in value by 2025 according to Business Wire. Let’s take a look at some of the best reasons for installing solar power and roofing solutions.


1. You Can Reduce Utility Bills


The potential to save when it comes to utility bills is one of the most obvious benefits of installing solar roofing. However, when you dig into the details, the case for solar power can be better than many people realize. For example, utility bills have been relatively predictable over the last several years. Global energy markets have been stable, and demand in some markets has peaked. However, economic and political shocks could lead to sharp increases in electricity and other utilities. Solar power could not only save money but can also reduce the risk of shocks. Having your shingles themselves collect energy is one of the most structurally efficient ways to power your property.


2. You May Qualify for Tax Rebates and Other Programs


Depending on where you live, there could be a monetary incentive for investing in solar roofing. As such, it’s smart to check if there are any government incentives, such as tax rebates, for installing solar roofing in your area. If so, this could save you a lot of money or provide other benefits. Besides checking with the federal and state governments, be sure to check with local offices to see if they’re offering incentives or other programs. It never hurts to ask, after all.


3. It’ll Improve Your Home’s Value


The many benefits of solar roofing can increase the value of your home or other property. Thus, when it comes time to sell, you may secure a higher selling price. In some cases, between increased property values and savings, solar power and roofing solutions can pretty much pay for themselves. Such value is hard to look past! Even if you don’t plan to leave, you’ll be able to enjoy the boost in curb appeal.
