Frequently Asked Questions
With over 40 years of experience in the residential and commercial construction industry we are your property improvement and maintenance specialists.
We specialize in all types of roofing. If you have a flat roof, we will typically install Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO), a single-ply reflective roofing system made from ethylene-propylene rubber and polyprophylene polymerized together. The most common types of roofing product installed are shingles. Shingles come with a 25, 30, 40, and 50 year warranty. If you are looking for a quality but affordable roof, we recommend 30 year laminated shingles. These shingles typically have a 110 mile per hour wind warranty where the 25 year shingles typically have a 60 mile per hour wind warranty. Laminated shingles are typically going to be the best value shingle. We also offer tile roofing for which many styles and colors are available. If you are looking for a premium roof, we offer standing seam metal roofing. Finally, no matter what style roof you are looking for, we can install it in metal. We have metal that has the look of tile, wood shakes, shingles, and many more options.
How did you first become interested in your line of business? (if owner) – What is your background? (If owner or store manager)
We have been installing roofs for over 40 years. We pride ourselves on our quality, service, integrity, and professionalism in the roofing industry. We specialize in standing seam metal roofing.
We have a different approach than most roofing companies, we can offer you any type of roof. Where many roofing companies sub out their metal roofs, we bend all of our trim at our office, and have installers that are well educated to install the roofs. We have a project manager that checks on your roof to ensure the highest level of quality possible. We are a first class operated company. Being family owned, we treat you with respect and go the extra mile to make sure we will be the company that you can confidently tell all of your friends about.
We operate out of central San Antonio, a few miles West of the Quarry. We have doubled in size the last three years in a row. Why? Our customers are very comfortable referring us to others. We have over 50 insurance adjusters in the San Antonio area that refer us as a preferred contractor. Many insurance adjusters look at hundreds of roofs every year. Holding a high level of quality, our roofs are seen time after time looking better than the rest. We are also a consulting company. If a homeowner believes that there is hail damage on their roof but their insurance company isn’t providing coverage because they believe that there isn’t hail on their roof, we can do an inspection to give our opinion. Many times, insurance companies will hire us to provide this service because we give a fair opinion every time. On the homeowners side, this is free of charge to you. All that we ask is that you use us to replace your roof if we get your insurance company to pay for replacement of your roof.

A few ways to look for roof damage without climbing onto the roof is to check the ground for any fallen shingles or loose asphalt granules. Check your gutters for any dents that may have been caused by hail. Your roof most likely has hail damage if the gutters have hail damage. Check the fascia and soffits for any deterioration or openings. You can also go inside your attic and look for any water damage.
Your roof can be repaired if the leak is isolated and is caught early enough. It’s best to call a roofer for an inspection to make sure the lumber under the roofing material hasn’t been compromised. You should have your roof inspected once a year. Call Kresta today for a free inspection.
Your roof can last from 15 to 70 years or more. It depends on the roofing material you choose and if you perform regular maintenance. Asphalt shingles last from 15 to 30 years. Clay tile roofs can last 50 years or longer. Metal roofs last around 40 to 70 years and Slate tile roofs can last up to a 100 years.
It can take 2 to 3 days to install a new roof on your average home. It depends on if we need to remove the old roof first or repair any damaged lumber.
The southern side of your roof usually wears faster because it receives more sun exposure. The sun will wear down and weaken the roofing material over time.
Check your gutters and vents for any dents after a hail storm. Your roof most likely suffered damage if the gutters are damaged. Call Kresta for a free roof inspection after a storm to identify any damage.
Roofing underlayment is a water proof material that is placed directly on top of the roof deck before shingles, tile, or any other roofing material is added.
The wood planks below the roofing material will need to be replaced if it is rotten or heavily damaged. It’s possible that only certain sections need to be replaced and not the entrie thing. Our roofers will inspect the wood and let you know if it needs to be replaced before doing any work.
A shingled roof will last from 20 to 30 years. It depends on the quality of shingles you buy and if you perform regular maintenance to extend its longevity.
