The Tomlin Roofing Difference

Shingle Roofing: The Tomlin Process

Tomlin Roofing uses the top shingle brand — CertainTeed — 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? In addition to residential roofing in San Antonio and the surrounding areas, Tomlin Roofing Company also provides services like shingle repair, leaky roofs, rotted fascia and more.

3 Tab & Dimensional Shingles

The 3-Tab Shingle (shown top-left) is typically warrantied from manufacturing defects for up to 25 years. It's composed of a single ply of fiberglass, asphalt and a granular finish. Certainteed's XT25 shingle performs better than any 3-tab shingle in its class

Laminated shingles (shown bottom-left) carries a limited lifetime warranty. The shingle has a variety of names such as architectural or dimensional, derived from its enhanced 3D design. It is composed of two layers of fiberglass, asphalt and granules, which are laminated together in a variety of patterns to give an enhanced look to your rooftop. Certainteed's Landmark series of dimensional shingles carry the best warranty, are the heaviest shingle in its class, and boast a 120 mph wind warranty

Ridge Cap

Choosing the right ridge cap can be crucial to the overall performance of your roof. Dimensional shingle roofs should be capped with a premium ridge cap product. Tomlin Roofing uses high profile ridge cap shingles to add an enhanced look to your roof line. These shingles perform at the same performance rate as the architectural shingles they're installed on. This method of installation enhances the curb appeal of any home and adds value.

Pipe Flashings

Knowing just what type of roof flashing to use on the penetrations through your roof is serious business. Tomlin Roofing uses top quality lead flashings on re-roof projects with dimensional shingles. Lead flashings last forever and do not fail under the extreme UV light of the Texas sun

Roofing Underlayment

Tomlin Roofing uses the finest underlayments to maximize your roof's performance. We spare no expense when it comes to your roofing, starting with the very foundation. Roofing underlayment is a the first layer of protection from the elements during your re-roof process and the LAST layer of protection should a major storm event remove shingles from your home.

Roof Ventilation

The roofing industry has been creating varieties of roof vents since the first shingle was installed. Roof vents are used to aid in ventilating attic heat to help reduce internal home temperatures. Tomlin Roofing Professionals utilize a variety of these vents around the entire roof to maximize the efficiency of your ventilation.

Ice and water shield

Certainteed Winterguard ice and water shield is utilized in areas of your home that are suspect to leaking. In San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country we aren't particularly worried about snow. Heavy rains can come quickly however and leave roof valleys, wall flashings, and pipe flashings vulnerable to leaking. Our installation includes the added protection of ice and water shield at all of these areas

Drip Edge flashing

Drip edge flashing is replaced during every roof installation. This flashing is required by San Antonio city code, as well as the International Building Code, starting in 2012. Tomlin Roofing uses pre-colored drip edge to compliment your shingle or fascia
