Investigating and repairing a commercial roofing water leak necessitates advanced skills and training. Understanding and mastering the dynamics of commercial rooftop water intrusion takes specialized training and years of experience. We're proud to say that when Atlas National Roofing is on the job, you're working with one of the top repair teams in the industry.
Oftentimes, manufacturers require building owners to uphold a preventative maintenance plan for their roof's warranty.

Having a reliable maintenance program in place is important for your commercial roof. That's why Atlas offers contracts for regularly scheduled maintenance and repair visits. Contact our office today to learn more about how our team can maintain your commercial roof on an ongoing basis.
A functional roof is a crucial component of your commercial building's structural integrity. It will protect you from the elements and add aesthetic appeal to your property when properly maintained. However, when your roof falls into disarray, a variety of problems can occur. Keep your eye out for the following signs that your commercial roof needs repair:
Commercial roofs are made with materials meant for outdoor conditions, but too much moisture or heat can cause blistering that allows moisture in, weakening your roof's structure. When this happens, your roof ages prematurely, thereby reducing its ability to protect you and your customers or tenants.214-814-4300
Standing water can have incredibly damaging effects on your commercial roofing system. It can cause leaks that deteriorate your roof's integrity, which leads to water intrusion. When water intrudes on your property, it can cause a litany of health hazards associated with mold and bacteria. When you spot standing water on your roof, your roof's support system may be seriously compromised, especially with wooden materials.
Having a drainage system that works well is crucial for the health of your commercial roof. If scuppers or drains are clogged with debris and waste, water pools on your roof. Gaps in flashing can also cause water to permeate the building. Additionally, worn seams and cracks can give water access inside. Keep a sharp eye out for signs of clogged drains and gaps in your roof's flashing. If you notice these signs, you could need commercial roof repair.
Facility managers and commercial building owners know they'll have to consider roof replacement eventually. This type of service often requires a significant investment and halts day-to-day operations while the new roof is installed.
Fortunately, restoration is a cost-effective alternative to re-roofing for some commercial property owners. By implementing our advanced roof restoration systems, we can help restore your facility's roof membrane, extending its life and saving your money.
However, there is a window of opportunity for roof restoration. If 25% or less of your commercial roof needs to be replaced, restoration could be an attractive option for you.
Our licensed roofing technicians promptly identify problem areas and provide accurate estimates for resealing cracks, crevices, and gaps. Our team can also help eliminate and prevent roof leaks, further extending the lifespan of your commercial roofing system. We make it a point to carry out our roof restoration projects in a way that doesn't interfere with your daily operations or business productivity.
Atlas National Roofing takes a step-by-step approach to discover whether your property is suitable for restoration:
Gather Info: Our team will gather as much info about your building and its roofing system as possible. If suitable, we'll speak with your management team to determine factors like the age of your roof and the impact of previous repairs.
Inspect from Below: This step involves inspecting your underlying roof deck. That way, we can identify concerns like areas of water penetration and advanced degradation of your current roof deck.
Inspect from Above: We'll "walk your roof" to get an understanding of your commercial roof's overall condition. We want to be sure that restoration is a feasible option for your roof.
Assessment: We'll consider everything we've learned from the previous steps and advise you on your restoration options. We'll touch on your current roof and which coatings are appropriate. We can also talk about environmental concerns, how long restoration will last, the potential for tax credits, and the best restoration options for your geographic location.
With the rise of platforms like YouTube, DIY enthusiasts seem to be everywhere. However, regardless of how many DIY videos you study, your skills won't be on par with a professional commercial roofing contractor. Many DIYers claim they can save money by cutting out the pros, but this tactic usually leads to costly mistakes that cause more harm than good.
If you're in need of quality commercial roofing, it's always best to leave it to a reputable, experienced company like Atlas. Here's why:
Building codes in Argyle, TX are regulations drafted to govern how commercial construction projects are handled. When you don't adhere to building codes and try to construct a new roof with an untrained crew, mistakes are made codes are violated. That means you'll have to incur all the losses associated with demolishing the roof, as well as the cost of doing it right.
It makes sense, then, to hire a team of professionals to get the job done right the first time. At Atlas National Roofing, our contractors are always up-to-date on the latest commercial building codes to ensure your roofing projects are completed without any hiccups.
This benefit sounds like a no-brainer, but it deserves to be highlighted because of how important it is. Your safety and your customers' safety should be top of mind when you own a commercial property. Hiring licensed, trained commercial roofing experts keeps you safe by:
Having a properly maintained roof day in and day out. When your commercial roof is in good shape and working correctly, you and your customers are safer.
Commercial roof repair is a dangerous job for novices. A quick search online will bring up dozens of cases in Argyle, TX where DIYers get injured trying to construct or repair their commercial property's roof.
The highest quality craftsmanship only comes with years of hands-on commercial roofing experience. You could watch every roofing DIY roofing video online, but the quality of your work will never match that of a professional with years of work under their belt.
After all, commercial roofing involves much more than a few nails and some elbow grease. You must consider factors like installing ventilation outlets, roof coatings, and drainage options. Every commercial roofing contractor at Atlas is vetted and has years of training and experience, to handle the most complex commercial roofing projects in Argyle, TX.
Budgets are a big deal in the world of commercial roofing. Going over budget can mean the difference between completing a project and waiting for approval on funds. That's why our management team provides accurate estimates, detailed schedules, transparent deadlines, and consistent communication with our clients.

FORT WORTH — After starting its season 0-3, returning to the state championship for the second consecutive year seemed almost out of reach for South Oak Cliff.
But Friday night, SOC made that once-distant dream a reality again.
“We knew the end game,” SOC coach Jason Todd said. “We’re champions. Champions know how to get back up.”
Catch up on the day's news you need to know.
SOC (12-3) did exactly that by defeating Argyle (14-1), 14-6, in the 5A Division II state semifinals to punch its ticket back to AT&T Stadium for the chance to defend its 2021 state title. Like it has all season, SOC relied on its lockdown defense and just enough production from its offense to maintain the advantage as time ran out.
Argyle nearly climbed its way back into the game with back-to-back takeaways in the third, but SOC’s red-zone defense saved the day and held its opponent to field goals on both trips.
SOC held Argyle to its fewest points ever in a playoff game and allowed just 188 total yards on the day and 87 yards on the ground. Argyle averaged nearly 400 yards total and 250 rushing this season.
Quarterback William Little went 11-for-17 for 88 yards with two interceptions. Running back Jayvon Thomas led the day with 57 yards and a score on seven carries while Danny Green had 50 yards and the team’s other score.
SOC scored on its opening drive after Green and Tedrick Williams marched their team downfield to set up Thomas’ 29-yard score.
Six of the remaining eight drives in the first half ended in a punt with the only other two resulting in a turnover on downs when Argyle went for it on 4th-and-8 from the SOC 34 and the end of the second quarter.
Argyle totaled just 67 yards in the first half and one completed pass.
The momentum swung in Argyle’s direction early in the second half when Devon Owen came up with a key interception to give his team the ball at the SOC 28-yard line. However, it had to settle for a field goal and was only able to cut the SOC lead to four.
SOC threw its second consecutive interception late in the third with Grant Mirabal coming up with the takeaway at the SOC 33. Again, Argyle settled for a field goal despite reaching the 2-yard line after a costly false start pushed the offense back to the point where it could not convert on third down. Argyle trailed 7-6 early in the fourth.
After a third quarter of nearly no offensive production, SOC drove down field and capped it off with a touchdown from Green to set the final 14-6 score.
“It’s a championship fight,” Todd said. “We’re going to get hit in the mouth, too. And we’ve got to understand how to bounce back.”
Argyle quarterback John Gailey went 6-for-16 for 101 yards. Running back RJ Bunnell rushed for 56 yards on 16 attempts.
Argyle’s perfect start to its time in 5A may have come to an end, but Todd Rodgers’ squad proved this season it not only can hang with the state’s best, but is one of them.
South Oak Cliff will have the chance to win its second state football title in school history. It will face Port Neches-Groves (13-2), which beat Liberty Hill earlier Friday night, 42-14 — avoiding a rematch of last season’s title game — to reach its first state title game since 1999. It has won three state championships but hasn’t claimed the title since 1975.
SOC has a chance to make history Friday, as a Dallas ISD team has not made back-to-back state championships since Booker T. Washington did three years in a row from 1956-58 in the Prairie View Interscholastic League. A DISD team has never won consecutive titles.
Like last year, SOC is playing for more than its own school. It’s playing with the city on its mind.
“It’s an opportunity to finish something off and do something that nobody in the city has ever done before,” Todd said. “48 more minutes — the last 48.”

The team of local restaurateurs behind Rustico Grill and 1845 Taste Texas are proposing a new sit-down Tex-Mex restaurant in Argyle.
Marty Bryan, Brian Gasperson and Alan Mann are working on purchasing land on FM 407 to put the restaurant, billed Cactus Canyon. Before they can close on the land, though, they want to ensure that the Town Council will approve a zoning change from agricultural to allow for the restaurant.
If approved, Cactus Canyon will be a mid-scale Tex-Mex restaurant with a variety of fajitas, tacos, enchiladas, margaritas and “some uniquely-inspired Tex-Mex grill items,” said Bryan, who also owns and operates Marty B’s restaurant and Marty B’s Coffee Co., separately from the partnership with Mann and Gasperson. Bryan said they chose the location — next to The Well Community Church, about halfway between I-35W and Hwy 377 — intentionally.
“We like to feel like we’re in and a part of the community, not just be off the freeway,” Bryan said. We feel like of all the things Argyle is missing, Tex-Mex is probably the biggest piece it doesn’t have. We’re also trying to capture some traffic in Northlake, there’s so much growth out there in Harvest and Pecan Square.”
The concept plan for the restaurant calls for a 6,400-square-foot building with a large outdoor patio. Seating capacity would be around 220 people, Bryan said, it will be open seven days a week and there would not be any live music.
The town of Argyle announced Tuesday that a Program for Argyle Community Engagement (PACE) public input meeting regarding this restaurant development will be held at 6 p.m. on Nov. 22 at Argyle Town Hall. At the meeting, residents can meet with the developer and consultants working on the project and learn more about the proposal.
During this week’s Highland Village City Council meeting, the council approved $52,500 in funding for area nonprofit organizations.
Each year, the council allocates funds to support nonprofits that provide essential services to residents of Highland Village, according to a news release from the city. Nonprofit applicants must meet certain guidelines in order to request funding, and their services must be of economic benefit to the community or contribute to the quality of life in Highland Village.
The following allocations were approved:
The changing of the season signifies a time of renewal. Fall brings great opportunities for people to reconnect with the spirit of gratitude and the chance to gather with family and friends. As the 30 days of November begin, we turn to the season of thanksgiving, reflecting on the great blessings bestowed upon us.
Giving thanks across America arises from the gift of our freedoms. President Abraham Lincoln wisely said that “Freedom is the last, best hope of earth.” Through incredible blessings, America has stood on the bedrock of liberty shining as the beacon of hope and freedom for the world. The republic on which our great Nation was founded 246 years ago has prevailed throughout the years because of the sacrifices of the brave men and women who have given their lives for our freedom.
Knowing this — we look to the season of thanks by recognizing and honoring our veterans. At the end of World War I, the armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day in the eleventh month of 1918. Armistice Day was designated a national holiday in 1938, later becoming Veterans Day in 1954. This special day of commemoration gives every American an opportunity to honor those who gave the fullest measure of devotion as they served in our armed forces, enduring great risk and loss.
Keeping veterans at the forefront of our gratitude must go beyond a single day. Our veterans serve as our greatest heroes, to whom a debt can never be fully repaid by a grateful nation. It is my hope and prayer that our country never wavers in its appreciation for the sacrifices, courage, hope, and faithful love of country shown by every brave man and woman who wears our Nation’s uniform.
Across North Texas, there are many events honoring our heroes, and I hope you will participate in your community. Also, let us always remember that many long-term care facilities are home to aging service men and women, so please check with these local places about ways to say thanks. Additionally, the Texas Veterans Commission website – veterans.portal.texas.gov -provides many resources to help support those who have served.
Policy makers at every level of government must work to make certain we are addressing the greatest needs of our veterans. In January 2023, your Texas Legislature will convene to take up the people’s business. Over the interim, the Texas Senate has been studying several issues facing veterans and what our state can do to address each of these in our upcoming legislative session. The interim charges include removing barriers for companies offering benefits for veterans, establishing better public-private partnership opportunities, improving navigation for services and resources, addressing veteran mental health, training for first responders to better support veterans in crisis, and protecting the sacred grounds of our state veteran cemeteries.
There will be many bills filed to improve Texas veteran services, and I hope you will follow each on one at www.capitol.texas.gov. Our veterans have fought for us, and we must never waver in our fight for them.
Americans will also celebrate Thanksgiving, a time for gratitude, and gathering in the spirit of the bountiful gifts we have before us. As inflation has sadly risen to historic highs in our country, there is much work to be done to address great needs. I hope you will stay connected to area resources and non-profits on the countless ways to give back. There are many heart-driven non-profits leading our communities to meet people where they are and serve their needs, including fighting hunger. One cannot fully embrace the season, if the needs of others are not met. From groups such as Mission Moms to Meals on Wheels and food banks across our region, there are countless ways to nourish your community. If I can ever help connect you with a local event or cause, please let me hear from you. Small differences ignite big changes so please know that everyone can do something to make Thanksgiving a little brighter.
May we each use our God-given abilities and blessings to make the most of this November and in turn, inspire the next generation to continue the celebration of gratitude and widen the circle of giving for all.
It is an honor to serve you in the Texas House and work together for a stronger Texas. I encourage people to use their voice to shape the future of our community, state, and Nation by exercising your right to vote on November 8. I look forward to staying in touch, at 972.724.8477 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn.

STEPHENVILLE – It didn’t take any magic words at halftime for Argyle head coach Todd Rodgers to motivate his team in Friday night’s regional championship game against Abilene Wylie. The scoreboard was enough to fire his team up.
Argyle overcame a 14-7 halftime deficit with scores on four consecutive possessions in the second half as Argyle rallied for a 35-28 victory over Abilene Wylie in the Class 5A, Division II, Region I championship game Friday night at Tarleton State’s Memorial Stadium.
With the victory, Argyle (14-0) will play South Oak Cliff, a 30-16 winner over Melissa in the Region II championship, in next week’s state semifinals.
Catch up on the day's news you need to know.
Junior quarterback John Gailey ran for three second-half touchdowns to lead the rally for Argyle, which moves into the state semifinals in its first year playing in Class 5A.
“Our kids were angry with the way we played in the first half,” Rodgers said after the victory. “I didn’t have to give them very much of a pep talk. We just gave them some pointers at halftime and we came out that second half and executed at a much higher level.”
Now Argyle is one win away from returning to a state championship game for the second time in three years. Argyle won the Class 4A, Division I title in 2020. In its way, though, is defending Class 5A, Division II state champion South Oak Cliff. Those two will match up next weekend in a place and time to be determined.
“Our goal is to win a state championship,” said senior defensive lineman Riley Van Poppel, a Nebraska commit who led the Argyle defense with two of its eight sacks on the night. “Tonight was just the next step.”
After a first half when Argyle only managed 7 points and 121 yards of offense, Argyle looked much more like the offense that averaged nearly 40 points a game following intermission.
Gailey scored on a 10-yard run late in the third quarter before scoring again on a 1-yard TD carry on Argyle’s first possession of the fourth quarter to give his team a lead it would not surrender.
“We knew we had to come out that second half and play much better,” Gailey said. “We just settled down and were more focused. We knew we were the better team, we just had to come out and show it.”
A 1-yard scoring run by Landon Farris on the next drive gave Argyle a two-score lead before its defense held off a late Abilene Wylie rally to secure the win and move on.
Argyle opened the scoring on a 9-play, 85-yard drive on its second possession that was capped by a Gailey’s first touchdown of the night - 1-yard keeper on a fourth-and-goal that put Argyle up 7-0 in the first quarter.
But the remainder of the first half was dominated by Wylie (10-4), which got inside the Argyle 20 on its next four possessions - scoring on the final two drives - to take a 14-7 lead into the locker room at halftime.
After Argyle took a 7-0, Wylie got to the Argyle 19 before back-to-back penalties torpedoed that drive. Wylie then drove all the way down to the Argyle 1 on its next drive before Argyle made a goal-line stand.
But Wylie finally broke through on its next drive when quarterback Kadin Long scored on a 1-yard touchdown run to tie the game. After an interception by Ryan Price inside Argyle territory, Wylie scored again with just 12 seconds left in the first half to take a 14-7 lead at intermission.

As issues with mobility in Argyle persist, town officials hope to get some clarity on construction projects planned for its two major roads.
Denton County has seen massive population growth in recent years, and Argyle has been no exception. Argyle’s population grew by 34.16% from 2010-20, while neighboring Northlake grew by over 200% in that time, according to U.S. Census data.
To help with Argyle traffic, plans to widen FM 407 and US 377 are currently in the planning stages. US 377 will eventually be expanded to two lanes on either side, while FM 407 will become three lanes on either side.
Both projects are a while away from full completion, but the town is hoping to see progress in 2023.
“This is a town that has really severe mobility issues because of the pace of development around us,” Argyle Mayor Bryan Livingston said. “The buildup of population around us has been quite rapid, so interior mobility in our town is really a problem. That's an issue that we're trying to cope with.”
The FM 407 project will get a head start with a breakout project that will add a lane to a 1.4 mile stretch of the road from Gateway Drive in Argyle to Cleveland Gibbs Road in Northlake. The breakout project will hopefully begin utility coordination around April, with a letting date set for late 2024, according to Argyle Public Works Director Robert White.
Livingston said the breakout project would not be possible without cooperation between all of the communities affected by the project.
“There's really had to be a fair amount of teamwork here, and it’s been effective,” Livingston said. “If we weren't working as a team, we would not have succeeded in getting a breakout project.”
As the FM 407 breakout project moves towards utility relocation, the US 377 project is hoping to break free of the delays caused by its own utility issues. Livingston said the project has seen several delays because “almost a dozen different underground utilities all operated by different owners had to be moved out of the way.”
White is hopeful that utilities will be relocated by August.
“Because of the utility relocation, [the US 377 project] was spinning its wheels for a while,” White said. “We're trying to make sure that we not only get our utilities moved off center, but the sewer lines have to fit within certain regulations—that means that if it's not done right, we could cause others needing to be relocated... Our hope is to try and have that done before September so we can get with (The Texas Department of Transportation) on pushing for the 377 project to go as quickly as possible.”
Another thing that may ease some of Argyle’s traffic issues is the completion of the Stonecrest Road reconstruction project, which is set to finish early this year. That project’s completion could also have some major benefits on the larger projects looming, according to White.
“With the condition of Stonecrest, from my understanding, it needed to be redone,” White said. “The question came up whether or not it would be better done before, during or after the US 377 widening... getting it done before is good, because that helps our local users, because they’ll have the alternate route of taking Stonecrest while [US] 377 is under construction.”
Livingston added that the Stonecrest Road project would have some other safety and quality of life advantages.
“Because the road surface was just a series of massive potholes and bumps, it had to be replaced for safety reasons,” Livingston said. “But you’ve had people who are losing their driveways for 24 hours or longer, and you’re also dealing with the road being fully blocked by equipment. It's just been hard, because we're dealing with narrow rights of way.”
Town officials are also hoping to address some of the thoroughfare issues with an update to its comprehensive plan. The update process began in December, and it is expected to conclude in July.
While the town is taking steps to deal with its mobility issues, Livingston said he knows that it will remain a challenge in the future due to the area's growth.
“When you rebuild small roads in a small town environment, there will inevitably be disruption, and it's not fun,” Livingston said. “The town has to make some decisions that balance the desire of most residents for preservation of the town’s small town character, as well as coping with being in one of the fastest growing counties in the United States.”
The Argyle Town Council on Monday unanimously approved a resolution to formally oppose proposed routes for a disruptive transmission line through town.Oncor Electricity Delivery Company recently informed area residents that it is proposing a new transmission line from a new switch outside Rhome, in Wise County, to a proposed switch southeast of the FM 1171/Hwy 377 interchange in west Flower Mound.

The Argyle Town Council on Monday unanimously approved a resolution to formally oppose proposed routes for a disruptive transmission line through town.
Oncor Electricity Delivery Company recently informed area residents that it is proposing a new transmission line from a new switch outside Rhome, in Wise County, to a proposed switch southeast of the FM 1171/Hwy 377 interchange in west Flower Mound. The company is considering many different routes for this transmission line — dubbed the Ramhorn Hill-Dunham 345 kV Transmission Line Project — including some that would cut through developed areas in Argyle and Northlake. Residents said they were concerned about the impact a transmission line would have on their property values, the environment and “prudent avoidance of EMF exposure.”
Leaders in Argyle and Northlake have been working together to do what they can to discourage the most disruptive routes through their towns. They came up with their own route, farther south and more direct than all of Oncor’s proposed routes, and they’re asking U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, TX-26, and both U.S. senators from Texas to ask the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for permission for the transmission line to go through part of the Corps land just west of Lake Grapevine. During Monday’s meeting, Mayor Bryan Livingston said that after initial talks, the Corps is open to the idea of the line going through its land, but the time crunch may be an issue in getting it done.
On Monday night, the council unanimously approved a resolution stating “in the strongest language possible, the Town of Argyle opposes the proposed alignments of the Transmission Line through the Town.” The resolution also states that the town will formally and fully support a southern route for the transmission line, and authorizes the town administrator “to take all necessary action, including the expenditure of funds,” to oppose the routes through town.
In a separate motion, the Town Council on Monday also authorized the mayor and town administrator to hire an attorney and/or public relations firm to help the town in its opposition to the transmission line routes.
Oncor representatives attended the meeting to provide more information about the transmission line. They said the project is deemed “critical to reliability,” meaning it will be fast-tracked into service. Oncor plans to file the project with the Public Utility Commission of Texas in May, and it will then go through a six-month litigated process, after which it will be known which route will be built. Construction wouldn’t be complete until 2025 at the earliest.
During the meeting, council members asked Oncor lots of questions, and then allowed residents to come up and ask the Oncor representatives their own questions. This was quickly ended because residents kept asking questions that Oncor couldn’t answer or had already answered.
Residents can voice their opposition or support for the proposed transmission line routes by filling out the Oncor questionnaire forms here by Jan. 20.
