From our Amstill Roofing family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a great time for Houston homeowners to get a roof replacement.

Thanksgiving: The Perfect Time for a Houston Roof Replacement

Thanksgiving is next week, which means family will be coming over. Now is the perfect time to get a roof replacement. A new shingled roof can really help beautify your home and make it stand out for the holidays and for the following years.

The holiday season is the time when Houston homeowners become very aware of how their home looks. It is also a time when weather is more than unpredictable (though, isn’t that always the case here in Houston?). The weather during the fall and winter is full of cold fronts and rain storms, which produces dead leaves and full gutters.

SIDE NOTE: Keep an eye open on those gutters. The wet dead leaves that build up can cause problems to the trim of the roof and its interior. Be sure those gutters stay clear of dead leaves.

GETTING A HOUSTON ROOF REPLACEMENT

A roof replacement is necessary when shingles hit the 20-year mark (for typical shingles). When roofing shingles get old, they begin to crack and break or completely pull away from the nails, leaving gaps in the shingles. These gaps can wreak havoc on a roof because it allows for rain and wind to do more damage than usual. This damage can include creating leaks within the infrastructure of the roof.

Keep your entire home safe with a new roof. Our Houston roofing company has been building roofs since 1974. Our roofing company offers various types of shingles, including 3-Tab shingles, laminate shingles, and architectural shingles. These types of shingles provide different warranties, ranging from 20 years to more than 50 years. Depending on which kind of roofing shingles you choose, you may never have to mess with your roof again.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT ROOFING SHINGLES

If you are in need of a roof replacement, then contact our Houston roofing company. One of our roof experts will come to your home to provide a free inspection. We will be able to inform you of what your roof needs, whether a complete replacement or just roof repairs. Before Thanksgiving Day arrives, contact us and have a new roof before you carve up the turkey.

Fall weather in Houston and roofing.

Is Your Roof Ready for Houston’s Rare Cold Weather?

If you haven’t noticed, we have. The weather has gotten a little more chilly. Houstonians know that this pleasant and cooler weather won’t last very long, which means we have to take advantage of it in every way. One way to take advantage of it is by gauging the temperature in your house and how difficult it is to warm. If your heating system is working too hard to warm your home this fall and winter, then you may have cracks and breaks in your roof structure.

HOW TO MAKE SURE YOUR ROOF IS READY FOR COLD WEATHER

At Amstill Roofing, our Houston roof experts will conduct a free roof inspection. Our primary concern for every homeowner is to ensure their roof is safe and secure. This means checking for breaks or cracks in the roof, missing shingles, and inspecting the life of the shingles. Here is why we do these inspections:

  • ROOF BREAKS AND CRACKS: When a roof has breaks or cracks in its structure, wind, rain and other elements can get inside and cause internal damage. This roof damage can range from mold to collapsing ceilings. When cold winds are uninhibited, it can really force the heating system to work harder than necessary, causing Houston homeowners to pay more in energy bills than necessary.
  • MISSING SHINGLES: When shingles are missing, this makes it easier for the roof structure to sustain damage. Shingles are the first line of defense for your roof. Our inspections will check the life of your shingles and assess whether they need to be replaced or not. Shingles typically go missing when they have been hit with strong winds, tree limbs and harsh weather conditions. Old shingles are more likely to go missing when these instances occur.
  • OLD SHINGLES: The last thing your roof needs is old shingles protecting it. They are apt to fly off with strong winds or crack and break with time and bad weather. The typical age for replacing shingles is 20 years.

IS YOUR ROOF COLD WEATHER READY?

If your roof is struggling to protect your home or if you think your roof may be in its final year of life, then contact our roof replacement professionals. Amstill Roofing is here to check your roof and ensure it is prepared for whatever the Houston weather sends its way.

Houston scary house and old shingles. Needs roof repair.

Is Your Roof Halloween-Ready or Just Scary?

The scariest time of year is right around the corner. Halloween is a moment of tricks and treats, but what about your roof? If your roof is playing tricks on you with leaks or missing shingles, then let Amstill Roofing treat you to a strong and durable roof.

As the month of October comes to an end, the fall weather will become noticeable in Houston. Having missing shingles or old shingles can create leaks and cracks in the roof. These are created because there isn’t protection or there is less protection for the plywood and underpinnings.

Make sure your home feels inviting to everyone who comes over, even if they’re just ringing the doorbell and leaving after getting some candy. At our Houston roofing company, we ensure that your roof makes for a very inviting home. We also ensure that your roof will do its job to protect the rest of your house.

ROOF REPAIR FOR THE END OF SEASON

Maintaining your roof is essential to protecting the rest of your house. Our roofing professionals conduct roof inspections to ensure that your roof isn’t taking on any damage from weather conditions. Simple problems within the roof can lead to some scary problems.

Here are some issues that can take place if Houston roof repairs are taken care of in a timely manner:

  • LEAKS IN THE CEILING: How does rain leak onto your ceiling? Through the roof. If there are cracks or breaks, even small ones, rain can seep through and cause your ceiling to collapse or suffer water damage. Either way, it would require a replacement of the affected area in your ceiling, along with correcting the issues in the roof.
  • MORE MISSING SHINGLES: Leaving missing shingles on the roof can lead to more missing shingles. When harsh winds hit the gaps in the shingles, it can cause them to be lifted out of place or torn, especially if the shingles are old.

MAKE YOUR HOUSE HALLOWEEN READY, NOT SCARY

Before Halloween hits, contact Amstill Roofing to fix every problem you may be experiencing. We will inspect your roof for free and inform you of the health of your roof. We look forward to ensuring your roof is ready for the season and for the many seasons to come.

Choosing the Right Shingles for a Houston Roof Replacement

The average roof only lasts about 20-years, but you can surge past the average roof. At Amstill Roofing, we can double that time and even nearly triple that time. Just think about it. That means you could possibly only need one roof replacement in your lifetime.

HOW CAN AMSTILL BUILD A 50-YEAR ROOF?

The goal at our Houston roofing company is to build roofs that last and are incredibly durable. We have been building roofs for Houston homeowners since 1974 with great success. One of the reasons we have had such amazing success is because we provide homeowners with options.

Choosing the types of roof replacement shingles that last:

  • 3-Tab Shingles: The most common type of shingles are the 3-tab shingles. These last about 20 years. These types of shingles come in various colors that can complement the home. These shingles take storms well and every type of weather condition, they simply do not last as long after near two decades. Not in comparison to the laminate shingles.
  • Laminate Shingles: Laminate shingles have a lifetime of about 30 to 50 years, which can enable some homeowners to never have to worry about getting another roof replacement. These types of shingles are twice as thick as the 3-tab shingles.
  • Architectural Shingles: These shingles are the strongest and most durable shingles available. Architectural shingles come in slate or cedar wood, which ensures their strength and durability. These shingles typically last at least 50 years.

MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR A ROOF REPLACEMENT

At Amstill Roofing, our roofing experts always spend time with our clients before they choose a type of shingle for their roof replacement. We provide all the information they need and answer all questions and concerns they may have. Getting a roof replacement in Houston is a substantial move and we want every client to happy with their choice for not just the lifetime of their roof, but for their lifetime too.

If you are in need of a roof replacement, then contact our Houston roofing company. We look forward to providing you with a beautiful and strong roof.

accuweather forecast for october 2017

This Fall and Winter Looks to Be a Good Time for Roof Repairs

Honestly, this month of October looks to be the perfect month to get roof repairs or a roof replacement completed. According to Accuweather.com, this month will be full of sunshine with highs in the mid-80s and lows around the high-70s. The evenings are going to be amazing, staying around the low-70s and high-60s.

Choosing to have Amstill Roofing complete any work on your roof means that you will be able to keep that great weather feel inside your home all year and well into the future. The rest of fall and winter looks to be pretty mild this year, but as we learned from the 2017 summer, a strong roof in Houston is a necessity.

PROTECTING YOUR HOUSTON ROOF REGARDLESS OF WEATHER

The weather conditions of Houston change almost instantaneously. It may be warm in the morning only to be hit with a cold front in the afternoon with rain and sleet and then followed by a nice cool evening. It is practically the typical weather pattern here in Houston. This is why Amstill Roofing ensures that every roof we work on is prepared for these changes in weather.

We conduct thorough inspections of the roof for breaks, cracks, missing shingles, and other areas of weakness that could become worse. Correcting these roof repair problems early will ensure your roof remains strong in the long-term. It also ensures that you aren’t spending unnecessary dollars on energy.

HOW ROOF REPAIRS SAVE ENERGY

When a roof has a break or crack, this allows the heating or cooling within the home to be released more easily. It also allows that adverse temperature (like heat or cold) from the outside to enter into the home, making your energy system work harder than it should to maintain the temperature you want. As any Houston homeowner understands, this can greatly increase the amount of money spent in monthly energy bills.

SAVE ENERGY AND PROTECT YOUR ROOF TODAY

If you have noticed that your energy bills have become unusually higher, then you might need roof repair. Contact our Houston roofing company today and get your roof prepared for any type of weather conditions this part of Texas may throw at you.

October Will Continue to Bring Houston’s Unpredictable Weather

Now that September is over, the peak of hurricane season has ended. But that doesn’t mean we are clear of storms, flying debris, and heavy winds. As the cold fronts begin to come in, we must brace for the typical Houston weather, which is unpredictable.

October sometimes brings cooler weather and sometimes it can be really hot. It’s a climatic hodge-podge. As Houstonians, however, we have learned to live with it.

At Amstill Roofing, we know that whatever the Houston weather brings, we will be prepared for it. After this past month of devastation due to Hurricane Harvey, there are countless homes in need of a lot of repair, including roof repair. We have been working around the clock taking care of our great clients because know a weak or damaged roof can easily be impacted by incoming weather conditions.

IS YOUR HOME IN NEED OF ROOF REPAIR?

If your roof has been in existence for 20 or more years, then it has seen a lot of storms and has fought a good fight. The 20-year mark, however, is commonly the end of a roof’s existence. The roof will need new shingles and possibly new plywood placed down.

If you have a relatively new roof, but are suffering from roof leaks or missing shingles, then it is time to have one of our Houston roofing specialists to visit your home. Whether age or storm damage, our specialists can determine the cause of your roof damage and how to best repair your roof.

Most often, especially after a major storm like Harvey, home insurance will cover a roof repair or a roof replacement. Once the insurance adjuster surveys the damage to your roof, then you will know what all will be covered by your insurance. We also offer to have our roofing experts join the insurance adjuster to help inspect the roof to ensure nothing is overlooked.

Lots of autumn leaves on a Houston roof

Houston Homeowners: Leaves on Your Roof Can Cause Damage

We are two days away from the start of autumn, which means the leaves will start dying soon. That’s no problem, of course. Autumn brings the weather in Houston to a tolerable level (of course, we have to wait until about the end of October to experience some really nice weather).

Speaking of leaves, however, these can definitely become a problem and many homeowners in the Greater Houston area do not understand why. When leaves begin fall by the thousands and millions, followed by rainfall, they can become stuck on the corners and crevices your roof. If they are not removed, they can begin to create rot within shingles and the wood paneling.

Leaves on the roof become very heavy, adding unnecessary pressure to it. If the wood paneling has begun to rot, it can create cracks in the wood, which leads quickly to leaks. Leaks can lead to mold, ceiling collapse and a host of other problems.

This autumn, keep an eye on your roof and those pesky leaves. Removing them is easy. Use a broom or a blower. But be safe when you are removing them. You’ll be on the roof, so don’t slip and fill. Wear shoes that provide good grip. Avoid the urge to remain in constant comfort, such wearing Crocs or flip-flops. That is a recipe for disaster.

HAVE LEAVES ALREADY CREATED ROOF DAMAGE?

If leaves have been left on your roof for years on end, then chances are rot has already taken hold. Your roof needs to be inspected thoroughly by one of our trained roof technicians. We will be able to pinpoint problems within the structure of your roof.

At Amstill Roofing, we want to make certain your roof is sturdy and isn’t susceptible to major damage. A strong roof helps ensure a strong house. Don’t let a simple problem, like gathered leaves, create major issues. Our Houston roofing company conducts quick and excellent roof repairs, as well as roof replacements.

Contact our roofing company today for a free inspection. We are here to protect your home by providing you with a solid roof. We’ll even make sure there aren’t leaves everywhere.
