Quick answers to the most common roofing questions
What is the best roof material?
The most popular roofing material for homes is asphalt. In fact, over 70 percent of all single-family homes in the US are roofed with asphalt shingles. Asphalt (sometimes called composite shingles) are popular because they are affordable, they provide solid protection, and they are available in a variety of colors and textures to compliment your home. While there are various qualities of asphalt shingles, the premium grade asphalt does an excellent job protecting your home from the extreme weather that can be so tough on Houston area roofing systems. While we install many brands of shingles, we personally recommend CertainTeed for the sustainability and quality of their product. If you prefer something other than asphalt roofing, then Blue Ribbon offers a wide range of other roofing materials, including Spanish tile and metal roofs.
When is the best time to start working on a new roof?
Roof repairs and roof replacement are best done before issues cause significant damage to your home. Blue Ribbon Roofing offers free roof inspections so that you can always receive an assessment of the condition of your roof. Our free inspections involve an evaluation of your roof along with pictures so that you can make an informed decision that is right for your family, your home and your budget.
When dealing with insurance related work, there are time frames insurance carriers allow for their customers to receive the full benefits to which they are entitled. Once your project is scheduled, Blue Ribbon Roofing monitors the weather closely so that we can protect our workers, as well as your home and make sure your construction is completed in the time frame the insurance allows.
What makes you better than your competition?
Selecting a roofing contractor to entrust your home to can be one of the most difficult choices a homeowner can make. The best way to evaluate any contractor is to look at their track record.

Will my insurance help cover my new roof?
Before filing an insurance claim, many insurance companies ask that homeowners have a qualified roofing contractor inspect their home for damage first. Blue Ribbon Roofing provides free inspections which includes photos and an assessment of any storm damage and an analysis of the condition of your roof. If a claim is filed, Blue Ribbon Roofing is available to meet with your insurance adjustor to help them document any damage and answer any questions you or they may have concerning the inspection.
What happens if I’m not satisfied with how the work is done?
Blue Ribbon Roofing’s goal with every project we undertake is to provide the best quality work and create a satisfied customer. However, no one is perfect and we believe the true measure of a company is how they react when things go differently than planned. We believe our record of reviews, awards and accreditations reflect our commitment to achieving and upholding these standards.
Is there a particular type of roof that your company specializes in?
Blue Ribbon Roofing is proud to be a part of the less than 1% of roofing contractors in America that have achieved the exclusive status of Select Shingle Master Company with CertainTeed, North America’s largest shingle manufacturer with over 100 year of experience in the roofing industry.
In order to achieve the level of accreditation of a Select Shingle Master Company, Blue Ribbon Roofing’s management, representatives and crew all had to take and pass classes and tests regarding the proper application and installation of shingles. In addition, Blue Ribbon Roofing must prove they are a financially viable company and maintain proper levels of insurance. In order to maintain this status, we must retake these classes and tests every 2 years, as well as annually show proof of our continued financial viability, insurance and customer satisfaction.
As with any trade, materials and craftsmanship go hand in hand to produce the best final product. So, don’t settle for anything less than the best for your home and family. Call Blue Ribbon today at 713-808-1990. Blue Ribbon Roofing, where your roof always comes first.
