A new roof is one of the biggest investments you'll ever make into your home. Champion Contracting Services has the experience and knowledge necessary to put you at ease while you explore your options for a new home. With years of experience installing new roofs in Houston, TX, we offer free inspections and expertise you can count on. We're happy to walk you through every step of the process from inspection, to material choice, to finished roof.
While there are too many variables to put a general price on a roof, we will send our inspectors out to perform a free inspection and discuss all the options with you to put together a thorough estimate. The pricing for a new roof depends on a variety of factors including the square footage of the roof, the roof material, and how complex the roof is. Our experience and knowledge of local variables around mean that we have the resources to help you determine the best roofing solution for your needs and budget. A properly installed roof that is suitable to the local climate will generally last up to 15 years with regular maintenance and inspections, acting as the first line of defense for your home the whole time.
While it may seem tempting to save up-front money by simply laying new shingles over the old roof, re-roofing is not typically recommended. If your shingles are old and need replaced, so does your roof deck. Once the old shingles are removed, our licensed roofing professionals will be able to identify areas of instability and damage to the roof deck that may have been previously hidden by the shingles. Not only is it best to replace the old roof decking, roofing materials and installation techniques change rapidly with new technologies, and building codes are continuously being updated. Re-roofing an old roof could leave the roof out of code and may not carry the same warranties as a full roof replacement.
If you've decided it's finally time to consider a new roof, Champion can help you sort through all of your options. We will help you determine a budget and goals for your roof. From there we can help you determine the materials and installation that will fit into your goals for budget, function, and aesthetic. We'll work with you every step of the way to make sure your roof is exactly the way you want it.

First call us to inspect your roof and document damage, including a written description and digital photographs. We can help you determine if there is enough damage to warrant an insurance claim. If so, we can speed the process and get your roof restored quickly.
Every carrier is different. However, your insurance company will pay for damage that is the result of an act of nature or accident, such as a hailstorm, hurricane, tornado, falling branches or debris, or other incident.
Texas State Law mandates that all homeowners MUST pay their deductible. This amount will vary depending on your policy. It is important to understand how this works. If you have questions, we can help you figure out the process.
Yes, our inspector can be on hand when your insurance adjustor arrives to inspect the damage, and make sure all areas of concern are included on the final report. This ensures you get all the compensation you need for quality repair.
Each claim is different. The final determination of the value of the claim will be made by your insurance company, based on the report from the insurance adjustor. Depending on the age of your roof, the amount paid may be less than the full cost of repair or replacement (due to depreciation). This figure can sometimes be negotiated.
Before making a decision, make sure all the estimates are offering the same quality of materials and workmanship. One contractor might propose using 25-year shingles, while another may offer installation of a 50-year shingle for only slightly more. Make sure you're getting the most for your money.
Your insurance adjuster provides a detailed estimate of items your insurance company has determined which will be repaired or replaced.
The pricing for new roofs depends primarily on the square footage of the roof surface, the type of material you choose (asphalt, metal, cedar shakes, tile, etc), and the complexity of your roof (dormers, steep angles, etc.) Because we've been installing new roofs in the Houston, TX area for so many years, we have the experience and resources to help you decide on a quality roof solution that will suit your budget.
Each shingle brand provides a different guideline for how long they expect their shingles to last. A properly installed roof will generally last up to 15 years with regular maintenance and inspection, especially after severe weather events.
While there could be some initial cost-saving in laying new shingles over an old, aged roof, we generally don't recommend re-roofing. Old shingles also mean an old roof deck. By tearing off the old shingles, our licensed roofing contractor will then be able to spot any areas of instability or damage to the roof deck that may have been hidden by the shingles. We can replace any sections where there may be wood rot. Roof installation techniques and materials have also changed over the last couple of decades, and your old roof may not be up to code. "Re-roof" jobs may also not carry the same warranties as a full replacement.
When you decide it's time to consider a new roof, consider first your budget and your goals. Metal roofs tend to last longer than asphalt shingles, but they cost more upfront and may not "fit in" with the neighborhood. Asphalt shingles are an affordable option, but even in that arena, there are choices that will determine the overall aesthetic and potential lifespan of the roof. Consulting a roofing contractor to help you make these choices is best. They'll have the experience to help guide you towards the best result.
