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.

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 Lavon, 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.

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 Lavon, 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 Lavon, 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.

Some school staff members and students were hospitalized Wednesday after a gas leak outside of an elementary school in Lavon.
Firefighters responded to a call a little before noon about a gas leak outside Phyliss NeSmith Elementary School, the Lavon Fire Department said. The leak was related to a construction project on the campus. Lavon is about 35 miles northeast of downtown Dallas.
A Community ISD spokeswoman told KXAS-TV (NBC5) the gas leak occurred at an area outside the main building of the school, where a gas line was being added to a tornado shelter and classrooms are being built.
The leak was contained within 15 minutes, and no gas readings were found within the school by the Fire Department or Atmos Energy.
Get the latest breaking news from North Texas and beyond.
Atmos Energy and Lavon Fire Department tested multiple sites inside the school and did not detect any gas inside, said Cooper Welch, a Community ISD spokesperson.
Welch said the school district consulted with medical experts and first responders examined a few staff members. Some staff members then asked to be transported to a hospital.
A few students later reported effects from the gas leak, Welch added.
The Fire Department said some school staff members and students were transported to hospitals for further evaluation. KDFW-TV (Fox) reported nine staff members and two students were affected.
Welch could not confirm that number, but four people who told the district they were going to the hospital were released Wednesday night, he said.
The district told parents all students and staff are safe and they could pick up their children early from the school if they would like. Bus routes for the school operated at normal times Wednesday.
The gas is still turned off at the elementary school, said Community ISD Superintendent Tonya Knowlton in a letter Wednesday evening. She said the gas will not be turned back on until all gas-powered equipment and all lines are checked and an inspection is completed by city officials.
Knowlton said the district canceled classes the rest of the week for NeSmith Elementary School.
“With the gas turned off, our HVAC systems and kitchen appliances do not work,” Knowlton wrote. “Due to this constriction and to allow professionals to properly check the facilities, we are canceling school at NeSmith Elementary for Thursday and Friday.”

The short answer? Yes -- for now. But as North Texas continues to expand in population and sprawl, that could quickly change.
COLLIN COUNTY, Texas — Woody Woodruff of Greenville lives by the phrase, "Do something you love, and you'll never work a day," he said. Woodruff owns Woody's on the Lake in Lake Lavon. It's a boat rental business and floating restaurant he has owned for more than five years now.
"This is my office, couldn't be any better!" said Woodruff. "You gotta have water to rent boats. It's essential to what we're doing."
Lake Lavon is also essential to the area. The lake is the primary supplier to the North Texas Municipal Water District, a water wholesale provider. The water that originates from the lake is treated and delivered to many homes in the North Texas area.
NTMWD has 13 member cities and serves 2 million people daily. And as the population grows, so does demand. The district forecasts an additional 55,000 users every year.
"As they say, no one is bringing water with them, so our efforts are in conservation and reuse and trying to stretch our existing supplies as much as possible," said Galen Roberts, the assistant deputy of water resources at NTMWD.
But the million-gallon question: Is there enough? The short answer is yes -- for now.
"Our recommendation really is that communities in Texas really need to look at efficiency, water conservation, and repairing leaky infrastructure," said Jennifer Walker, who is with the National Wildlife Federation and a member of the Water Conservation Advisory Council.
This may be no surprise, but the largest water user in Texas has always been agriculture. Experts forecast that, by 2050, municipal water will take over.
"The agriculture trend is going down and municipal water trend is going up and those lines will actually intersect," said Walker.
"That's where my restaurant was sitting," said Woodruff, who remembers a time the entire marina had to be moved to deeper water. The drought almost forced it to happen again last year.
Right now, Lake Lavon is at 100% capacity. Other parts of the state, especially south and central, have not been so lucky.
"We plan for the worst-case scenario. It's amazing what rain will do in the right spot and at the right time," said Roberts.
Timing is everything in Woodruff's business. He's still reeling from the heavy winds and possible tornado that tore through his docks in March.
"Mother Nature, you don't mess with Mother Nature," Woodruff said.
And when Mother Nature gifts you a full lake, don't take that for granted.

Arlington-based D.R. Horton will be one of the builders in the community, county records show. It’s been the nation’s largest homebuilder by volume since 2002.
“Elevon is three years in the making from site selection and entitlement to the engineering of the first phase of development,” said John Marlin, partner and CEO of the development firm. “The Wylie/Lavon submarket is an area of strong growth and we are excited to be part of shaping the growth in this area.”
The Elevon plan includes a number of pocket parks, an extensive trail system, multiple amenity centers and public school sites. The entire development will be more than 1,500 acres.
Dallas-based PMB Capital Investments provided some of the debt for the project, Collin County records show. JBI Partners of Carrollton provided engineering, planning and architectural services.
MA Partners has developed multiple projects in Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and Houston. It currently has almost 3,000 acres under development, with projects underway in Dallas, Fort Worth and Melissa.
Its new project is in a suburban area that’s seeing increased residential development.
“Wylie has been the most active market area and is now nearing build-out,” said Ted Wilson, principal with Dallas-based housing analyst Residential Strategies. “As a result, builders and developers are now pushing out Highway 78 into the Lavon area. Lavon’s annual start rate has recently surged to over 100 units and likely will continue to grow in coming quarters.”
Wilson said the area will see more big housing communities.
“MA Partners’ new community, Elevon, is well located in the path of growth and will become a top performer in the area,” he said. “MA Partners has consistently produced master-planned communities that have an aesthetically pleasing design, have excellent amenities and are well executed.”

Rumor has it that there are piranhas lurking in Lavon Lake and other North Texas waters.
Is this chatter in a Princeton community Facebook group fact or fiction? The Dallas Morning News went fishing for answers.
Piranhas fall into the myth more than reality category. According to experts, there is not an established population of piranhas in Lavon Lake. In fact, the United States Geological Survey only shows two documented piranha sightings in Texas with one taking place near Houston and the other near San Antonio.
So how did the piranhas get there? Irresponsible pet owners likely dumped their aquarium in public waters, according to Monica McGarrity, senior scientist for Aquatic Invasive Species at Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
Get the latest breaking news from North Texas and beyond.
Even if they were introduced, it’s unlikely that piranhas could form an established population in a North Texas lake in the future, she said. Aquarium dumpers usually only dispose of one fish, which needs a counterpart with which to mate.
“These are tropical fish and so temperatures may get too cold and they may not survive the winter,” she added.
But if piranhas have never been documented in North Texas, what did residents see in Lavon Lake?
Park ranger Stephen Perrin of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it was likely a pacu — a relative of the piranha.
Like piranhas, pacus are originally from the Amazon river basin in South America and the two fish look similar when they are young.
When the fish age, they can look quite different. Some subspecies of pacu can live for around two decades and weigh more than 60 pounds upon reaching maturity, according to the Smithsonian National Zoo and Biological Institute.
The folklore about the scary, razor-toothed piranha doesn’t accurately describe a pacu. Pacus have duller teeth that resemble those of humans more than piranhas.
There have been 27 reports of pacu sightings in Texas since the 1980s, according to the USGS database. Similar to piranhas, these pacus were likely dumped into the lake by former pet fish owners, Perrin said.
Pacus have been sighted and documented a few times in North Texas waters: Lavon Lake in 1987, Lake Texoma in Grayson County in 2003, Eagle Mountain Lake near Fort Worth in 2000 and Ray Perry Lake in Tarrant County in 2007, according to USGS data.
These sightings are infrequent and don’t indicate a widespread threat to human or environmental health at this time, McGarrity said. Perrin said he’s only seen one in his ten years with the corps.
Pacus generally do not harm people, McGarrity said, but swimmers and boaters who encounter the fish should still be cautious.
“They can deliver a nasty bite. … Handling those fish could pose something of a risk to humans,” she said.
But if you see a pacu, or piranha, make sure to report it because if it was able to establish itself in Texas it could become the state’s next invasive species, according to Texasinvasives.org, a partnership between state and federal agencies, conservation organizations, academia and other private and public stakeholders who work to protect Texas from invasive species.
