Shingle Roofing: The Tomlin Process

Tomlin Roofing uses the top shingle brands — CertainTeed and Owens Corning — on your home. All roofs are removed entirely down to the decking. The roof deck is inspected for rotten wood and replaced as needed. New underlayment is installed and special water barrier is applied around trouble areas to protect from leaks. Shingles are installed using nails, never staples.

After the roof replacement is complete, a Tomlin Roofing Professional will personally inspect the final product, ensuring you receive the quality you deserve. All of our South Texas roofs are protected with a 5-year workmanship warranty.

Is your roof missing some shingles? Do you have any problem areas on your shingle roof? Tomlin Roofing Professionals also provides roofing services like shingle repair, leaky roofs, rotted fascia and more.
