“Every calculation based on experience elsewhere fails in New Mexico.”

-Lew A Wallace, Governor of the Territory of New Mexico, 1878-1881

Not all roofing systems work well in New Mexico.
New Mexico’s high altitude and thin atmosphere do not provide much protection from UV rays which do much damage to your roof. The dry desert climate can have extreme temperature swings that vary sometimes 40-50 degrees within a 24 hour period, which causes problems with expansion and contraction in roofs.

Our specialized roofing systems are time tested and designed to prevent the problems cause by New Mexico’s unique high desert climate.

General Roofing is owned and operated by Leroy Ortiz. A New Mexico native, he brings over 30 years of experience to your roof project. Leroy and his team at General Roofing bring local expertise to all your roofing needs. We have extensive experience with the specialized materials required for a quality new roof or roof repair.
