Has your Houston roof experienced hail roof damage?

Has Your Houston Roof Experienced Hail Roof Damage?

As many Houston residents experienced this past Saturday (4/13), in addition to hurricanes and severe thunderstorms, our city is no stranger to hail. Hailstones the size of a baseball fell on the city this past weekend, causing damage to homes and roofs throughout the Greater Houston area.

Signs of Hail Roof Damage to Your Houston Roof

When it comes to your Houston roof, hail can cause severe hail roof damage. The strength of your roof’s shingles can be compromised, thus lessening your roof’s ability to protect your home. Furthermore, if hail is accompanied by high winds, like it was this past weekend, even small hailstones can degrade your shingles and protective granules. If your area was impacted by hail this past weekend, or in the past, here are some things to check for that indicate your roof may have hail roof damage:

  • Granules in gutters. When hailstones hit your roof, granules will often break loose. If you notice shingle granules on your roof or in your gutters, you may have hail roof damage.
  • Hail impacts on shingles. Hail impacts on shingles may show subtle spots or dents, bruises to shingle surfaces, or holes. If you notice dark spots or dimples on your shingles, hail roof damage is likely.
  • Misshapen shingles. When shingles are damaged by hail, they may begin to curl from their original shape. This type of stress often leads to cracked shingles that weaken and age faster than intact shingles.
  • Dents on metal parts of your roof. If your roof contains any areas made of metal, check for any dents or dings. If you notice a substantial number of dents or dings, hail is the likely culprit.
  • Split or dented shingles. If you have wood shingles, hailstones can cause them to crack or completely split apart, thus compromising the strength and integrity of your shingles.

Best Way To Determine Hail Roof Damage

Although the aforementioned signs indicate possible hail roof damage, merely checking for these signs is not a full-proof method to determine if your home has experienced hail roof damage. The surest way to determine if your roof has been damaged by hail is to schedule a free, no obligation roof inspection with Amstill Roofing.

What to look for in a Houston roofing company

What To Look For In A Houston Roofing Company

With so many roofing companies or roofing contractors serving the Greater Houston area, choosing the right one can often be an overwhelming task. However, there are some things to look for in a roofing company that will help lead to making the right choice.

EXTENSIVE HOUSTON ROOFING EXPERIENCE

Looking at a roofing company’s experience is a huge key to picking the right roofing company. At Amstill Roofing, we are adamant about making sure you know exactly what you are getting when you hire us. 

Our Houston roofing company has been fixing Houston roofs since 1974. With over 40 years of experience, there is not a roofing problem we haven’t seen.

Houston residents are used to the weather changing on a dime. One day it can be sunny and warm, before suddenly turning wet and cold. These abrupt changes in weather can often be detrimental to your home’s roof. In addition, hurricanes, tornadoes, hail storms, and heavy rains can tear off shingles, create dents in the roof, knock foreign objects such as tree limbs onto the roof, and cause roof leaks and internal damage to the roof.

Choosing a Houston roofing company that has decades of experience in successfully conducting roof repairs and roof replacements is a wise choice. Obviously, we are not the only roofing company in Houston that has been around for many years, but when you choose us, you are guaranteed top quality work from our highly trained roofing experts.

HIGH CUSTOMER SATISFACTION WITH HOUSTON ROOFING

Another important factor to consider when choosing a Houston roofing company is customer satisfaction. Our Houston roofing company encourages everyone to check out all of our reviews on Yelp, BBB, Houzz, Google, and Angie’s List.

How old is your Houston roof?

How Old Is Your Houston Roof?

Since 2014, Houston has seen a major boom in population growth. In fact, our great city ranked No.2 in the nation for most people added in 2017. When the growth of the Houston metropolitan area is considered for the past seven years, it ranks No. 4 in the nation. 

Recently, the growth has started to slow down a bit, but Houston still remains a national hotbed for population growth, and Amstill Roofing is as busy as ever, despite the fact that new housing projects are not as prevalent as before. This is due to the fact that with approximately 7 million people in the Greater Houston area, there are plenty of homes that need roof repair or new roofs. As one of Houston’s most trusted roofing contractors, we advise homeowners to replace their roof once it hits the 20-year mark, or when the warranty is up.

Hitting The 20-Year Milestone

When it comes to roofs, 20 is a very significant number. When your roof hits this age, you should seriously consider marking this milestone with a roof replacement. Assessing the overall health of your roof can often be done without having to get on your roof. If you notice missing shingles, dents, or shingles that seem to blend into one another, these are all telltale signs that your roof has weakened and aged substantially.

Even if your roof looks ok from the ground, it may still have several underlying issues. This is why our Houston roofing company recommends having one of our professional roofing experts conduct a free, no strings attached inspection of your roof. During this thorough inspection, we will check for things such as: storm roof damage, strength and durability of shingles, and areas that allow for standing water and rot, to name a few.

To take a chance on an old roof will likely only lead to major issues in the near future. Therefore, if it has been a long time since you’ve had a new roof, contact us today to set up a free roof inspection.
