Forever Home

Weather Resistant Reroof for Residential Home in El Paso, Texas

by Marcus Dodson, Publisher

Every year in Texas, hail causes oftentimes irreparable damage to cars, crops, homes, and roofs.  In 2023, this proved to be more than enough for one homeowner in Eastern El Paso, Texas, who decided she had had enough.  She contacted Smith and Ramirez Roofing to take a look at her roof and see what they could change.

         Smith and Ramirez Roofing was Founded by Ty Smith and Alex Ramirez in 2012 and has been a loyal GAF Master Elite® contractor for over ten years.  Smith and Ramirez Roofing’s mission is to provide the best in both materials and services in the Sun City.  Their vision is for El Paso’s homes and businesses to have the best roofs, made with high quality and environmentally friendly materials that’ll last them for years.

         They offer comprehensive roofing services to both residential and commercial customers and work with a variety of materials and roof types to deliver excellent service.  Their services include repairs, installations, flat roofing, metal roofing, shingle roofing, roof coatings, and leak repairs.  Smith and Ramirez Roofing offers free inspections and quotes, as well as 15 to 30 year manufactured back labor warranties. 

         “No one else in El Paso offers warranties like ours, and that’s because not only do we stand by our work but our manufacturers do as well, and we are confident customers will too,” said Alex Ramirez, co-owner of Smith and Ramirez Roofing.

         Upon appraising the damage and knowing that the homeowner wanted a full reroof and not just repair, it became quickly apparent that GAF products were the only way to go.  The home includes both steep-slope shingled areas and some low-slope roofing, and Smith and Ramirez Roofing knew that GAF roofing products could be relied on to cover the entire roof.  Each product was chosen with its sustainability and reliability to combat the weather in mind, as well as its overall aesthetic value.  “The homeowner was awesome and has said this is her forever home.  She already knew she wanted to work with us and use GAF products before she called,” said Ramirez.

         After viewing the roof and its 8/12 pitch, and knowing that this is the homeowner’s forever home, Smith and Ramirez Roofing knew they had to present them with the new Timberline UHDZ® shingles.  For a roof of this size and complexity, its dual shadow line feature on these slate colored shingles would beautifully compliment the white exterior for a modern look that stands out from the neighborhood.  Not only is the look beautiful, but Timberline UHDZ® is backed with strong warranties, a WindProven™ Limited Wind Warranty with no maximum wind speed limitation, since it was installed with qualifying accessories, a 30-Year StainGuard Plus PRO™ Algae Protection Limited Warranty, and a 30-Year Workmanship Coverage on the Golden Pledge™ Warranty only offered by Master Elite contractors like Smith and Ramirez.

         To add extra safety underneath the shingles, they also used WeatherWatch® Ice and Water Leak Barrier to help prevent leaks from water backing up into gutters or wind driven rain.  At the low slope part of the roof, Smith and Ramirez Roofing chose to use LIBERTY™ SBS Self-Adhering Base and Cap Sheet.  This served as the perfect base for the beautiful, covered back porch area of the home where the roof changes.

         On top of the care and consideration that went into the reroofing project, the skilled hands of the workers at Smith and Ramirez Roofing had the job completed in only a week.  The homeowner was happily left with a brand new roof on her forever home that she values even more now.
