Using a blower to remove leaves from a Houston roof.

Remove Dead Leaves Or Ruin Your Roof

Winter is coming to a close, which means those dead leaves should be completely off the trees. This being said, if those leaves came off your trees, they had to land somewhere. Chances are, a bunch of them landed on your roof.

If you have a bunch of leaves on your roof, don’t trust the wind to knock all of them off. You will probably have to do that yourself. You need to make sure that there aren’t piles of leaves – large or small – left on your roof. These patches or piles of leaves collect water and begin to rot over time. When this happens, it can cause the same effects to your roof. These old wet, rotting dead leaves can create mold and cause your shingles and the wood interior to start to rot.

Wet piles of leaves that have sat for weeks or months can also create weak spots in the roof. If this happens to your roof, then it means the wood framing has become weakened. Soft spots in the roof present rotting, which could lead to collapse in the area.

If your roof has a weak and soft spot, it needs to be repaired quickly. Houston is known for its unpredictable weather. Strong winds commonly pass through our city, which causes debris, like heavy tree limbs, to fly around and hit roofs. If a heavy limb falls on the weakened area of the roof, it could pierce the roof structure causing substantial external and internal damage to the house. Don’t wait for the worst to happen.

WAYS TO GET RID OF DEAD LEAVES

We recommend using a strong blower to remove the leaves on your roof. If you aren’t able to get on your roof, which can be risky, we recommend hiring someone to do it for you. Another way to remove the leaves is by using a rake or broom. But the blower, due to not having to make too much of an effort, tends to be safer. Always use a sturdy ladder to reach your roof.

Also, remove the leaves in your gutters. Gutters are known for collecting leaves and limbs and rain water. The combination of the three can negatively impact the ends of the roof. Also, full gutters can become very heavy and can cause unnecessary strain on your roof.

CONTACT AMSTILL ROOFING FOR YOUR ROOF REPAIRS

If you have left old leaves on your roof for a significant amount of time, then you should contact our Houston roofing company. Our roofing professionals are able to visit your home and conduct a roof inspection free of charge. We will check to see if there are any weak spots in your roof or possible rotting of shingles or framing.

Don’t Let Missing Shingles Ruin Your Roof

There’s a saying that one bad apple ruins the whole bunch. Think of this in terms of shingles on your roof. Of course, there are way more shingles on a single roof than there are apples in a singles basket, but the point still stands. If your Houston roof has missing shingles, this can lead to major issues that would require much more than replacing a single shingle.

When there are missing shingles, this can lead to the weakening of surrounding shingles. Because of the gap left from the shingle, weather conditions can have a major impact on the health of your roof. Strong winds can push the shingles out of place, creating more of a gap. If this gap is not addressed, the area can become fractured or begin to rot.

PROTECTING THE GAP LEFT BY MISSING SHINGLES

Keep in mind that shingles are the first line of defense for your roof. When shingles go missing, the roof becomes weaker very quickly.

As we mentioned, missing shingles can cause areas to rot or become fractured. This happens when rain can no longer be defended against. The water is able to sit in areas of the roof, which can lead to mold and the rotting of the wood and framing. If this happens, roof repairs can become extensive and expensive. At Amstill Roofing, we recommend contacting our Houston roofing contractor company the moment you notice that you have missing shingles.

Regarding the fracturing of the roof, many times shingles offer an impact protection from falling debris, like limbs. When shingles aren’t there, this can allow the debris to create breaks and fractures in the framing.

  • MISSING SHINGLES: When you have missing shingles, this can lead to more missing shingles which can really alter the effectiveness of your roof. This can lead to leaks into the attic as well as other types of damage due to the first line of defense missing on your roof.
  • DIVOTS:Our inspectors walk around your roof feeling for weak spots in the roof. If there are divots, then this may be because you have a break or crack in your roof structure. This could lead to serious internal damage. It may also be due to rotting material, which is substantial. Divots can hold water on the roof, which can further weaken your roof structure.

New Year. New Roof. Amstill Roofing Can Deliver

Even we have a hard time believing that 2017 is practically over. Within the next few days, 2018 will be here and we will again be surprised at how fast the time flew by. It is interesting how quickly the months and years go by. In that regard, Houston homeowners can quickly lose track of time and how long they’ve had their roof.

On average, the typical roof lasts about 20 years. By this time, shingles begin to crumble, break, or fall off. This leaves the interior of your roof exposed and vulnerable to bad weather conditions, like strong winds, rain, sleet, and hail. Even dead leaves can find their way into the openings left by missing shingles. This can create mold and weakened wood in the interior. Once this takes place, the roof repairs will require much more than shingle replacements.

ACT SOON. SAVE MONEY.

Taking care of your roof sooner rather than later can save you a lot of money. As a Houston homeowner, you shouldn’t wait till your roof gets in poor condition. If you wait until you start to see issues within your roof, then chances are there will be more costly problems awaiting.

Christmas is only five days away, which means there’s no better time to give you and your family the gift of continued home protection. If you are experiencing roof storm damage, like cracks and breaks where wind and water are able to intrude, then you need get these issues corrected as soon as possible. These types of problems can worsen over time with more rain, wind, and flying debris.

Roof storm damage can cause these cracks and breaks, as well as missing shingles. When shingles are missing, this leaves portions of the roof interior exposed and vulnerable. This can cause damage that can affect the interior of your home, like the attic and even the ceiling. If rain seeps through the roof and onto the sheetrock, it can cause your sheetrock to collapse and can create mold. Both of these issues can be way more costly than they should be.
