The asphalt shingle roof is the most popular type of roofing in the United States. The average lifespan is up to 20 years. The materials start at prices below a dollar a square foot, are easy to install and simple to repair. If your shingle roof is aging, we offer a seamless, durable elastomeric coating to seal shingles against leaks and damage.
Metal standing seam roofs are factory-made panels with raised seams that interlock then are sealed watertight. It has been used in half of all low-rise commercial and industrial buildings constructed in the last several years.
Modified bitumen is ideal for buildings with flat or low slope roofs. It is manufactured in rolls with adhesive on the underside to bond the roofing to the substrate.
Metal roofing complements home exterior decor, delivers the long-lasting affordability commercial structures require, and is the first choice for industrial building. In light colors, or with a metal roof coating, the energy efficiency is significant.
Roof coatings adhere to many kinds of roofing materials. The products are not “one size fits all,” but are engineered for specific roofing materials. What they do have in common is exceptional “reflectivity,” which means heat from the sun bounces away from the surface, significantly reducing air conditioning costs.
Elastomeric roof coatings are applied as a liquid, and then dry to a seamless coating that prolongs the life of your roof. It is an economical roofing solution for BUR, modified bitumen, metal, cement, and EPDM roofs.
For rubber roofs, a seamless coating results in years of worry free and maintenance free service. An aging EPDM roof shrinks and cracks. The coating restores leak protection.
Metal roof coatings are the innovative solution for commercial, industrial, farm and ranch structures. Your roof is coated with layers of polymer leak and rust protection.
Flat roof coatings eliminate the succession of troubles associated with flat roofs such as chronic leaking, ponding and rapid deterioration. Ask about it if your current roof is hot-tar modified bitumen rubber; built-up single-ply metal; or polyurethane foam.

Austin Roofing Replacement
We are not the “yellow pages” generation. We are the generation of the world wide web. Where our parents used to let their fingers do the walking, we search the internet. However, when it’s time for roofing replacement, neither of those tactics are going to lead to answers that will give you the life and longevity that you’re going to want and expect from your new roof. Unless you yourself are a roofing replacement expert, you’re going to want to find the best roofing contractor for your needs. How do you do that?
Inevitably, you know people who have utilized local roofing contractors. Talk to who you know and find out what others have experienced with roofing replacement. This is an invaluable way to get direction towards just the right contractor for you and your unique needs.
There are times to cut corners, but a roofing replacement is a large investment and will actually add value to your building. Making the right choices will add years of life to your roof, however, wrong choices can lead to much destruction and added cost. Harvard University did a shocking study, revealing that 70% of all new roofing companies go out of business within the first three years of opening. This shows us that there are contractors who aren’t going to be around tomorrow, which could be devastating to such an important investment.
As you contact any potential contractors for your roofing replacement, please be aware that there should be an interview process. This process will give you an idea as to how trustworthy each contractor is, as they inform you about their company and roofing practices. During the interview, the right contractor will be prioritizing your specific needs and expectations.
Good communication, honesty and integrity, coupled with roofing expertise will make your roofing replacement experience one that you’ll be benefiting from for years.

Metal roofs are very common among commercial buildings due to their inexpensive and durable nature. After about 5-10 years, depending on the quality of installation, leaking starts to occur usually due to the rubber grommets and seam mastic cracking. Most metal roofs don’t usually have a problem with surface rust; however, older roofs are more susceptible. John Buren, a representative for Longhorn Construction, was looking at a 35 year old metal roof that had been leaking for about 20 years and covered with rust. Upon first glance, the only reasonable solution was to tear the entire roof off and replace all the steel. Looking closer, he realized the rust was only surface and the steel was heavy gauged and very solid. This roof in particular was perfect for the Longhorn Construction 6 Step System.
- Spray on rust remover and inhibitor to loosen the rust from the steel.
- Power-wash the entire roof.
- Examine fasteners to determine if replacing or tightening is needed.
- Treat all screw heads, flashings, and horizontal seams to seal leaks.
- Install a heavy rubberized base coat.
- Install Energy Star rated U.V. reflecting, rubberized top coat.
This roof coating system will make the roof water tight as well as reflecting damaging U.V. rays and heat. After applying this system, 10 years is guaranteed before any leaking will occur. Then all that is needed is a repeat of step 6 and you can add another 10 years to your roof. This is a great way to add an Energy Star rated system to your metal roof without needing to replace the entire roof.
Longhorn Construction’s metal roof systems are Energy Star rated which result in government tax rebates for you!
We offer many Energy Star rated solutions. For more information and options of systems that may work for you, contact Longhorn Construction at 817.645.5700.
