DALLAS (KDAF) — Finding the right roof for your home can be a daunting task.

In Texas, a roof needs to be energy efficient to withstand high summer temperatures, but also durable enough to withstand severe weather conditions. It’s also all too easy for scammers to trick homeowners into a bad roofing deal, especially after severe weather, when hail may leave many homeowners vulnerable with damaged roofs.

So how do you choose the right roof — and the right roofing company?

Billy Ellis roofing is here to help.

We sat down with Down Home in DFW realtors Nancy Pieper and Marion D’Unger, and Billy Ellis Roofing to talk about the importance of having a good roof.

“You’ve got to have somebody responsible,” said Marion D’Unger, Coldwell Banker Apex Real Estate Agent. “Somebody good and somebody that’s not going to scam you because you have scammers that follow these hailstorms and all. You’ve got to have somebody you can trust. So, the first thing is, call Billy Ellis Roofing.”

Looking to move sometime soon? The condition of a roof plays a big role in the value of a home when putting it on the market. When getting a home ready to sell, it’s important to note the condition of the roof and how it can add or detract from the value of the home, said Nancy Piper, Coldwell Banker Real Estate Agent.

Metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular in the Lone Star state, not only because of its aesthetic, but also because of its longevity compared to shingles.

“We do a lot of metal roofing, and that’s becoming more and more popular in Texas because of the hailstorms,” said Todd Ellis, Owner of Billy Ellis Roofing. “Metal roofs are more durable than composition, they can hold up to hail better, and they’re guaranteed not to split, chip or leak as a result of hail.”

It’s also important for homeowners to know their warranty, and to choose a roofer like Billy Ellis Roofing who will stand behind their product and installation, said April Ellis, Owner of Billy Ellis Roofing.
