How to Pick a Trustworthy Roofing Company For Your Tomball Roof Repair

Unfortunately, there is a bit of a misconception around the roofing industry. This is mainly due to the fact that many questionable roofers exist and try to sell their services when you don’t even need them. On top of that, they also overcharge for the low-quality roofing services they’ll provide. Your roofing is a crucial component of your house and your Tomball roof repair should be taken seriously, so here are some tips our Tomball roofing company has on how to ensure you select a trustworthy roofer.

A Pushy Roofer is Often Attempting a Scam

No one likes dealing with a pushy salesperson, and a pushy roofer is no exception. Even if you are in need of a Tomball roof repair, exercise caution if a roofer attempts to force you into getting work done and ignore them. This is because they are usually desperate for money and therefore running a scam to get it. A reputable Tomball roofing company such as Amstill Roofing will only reach out to you if you first reached out to us through a contact form on our website or with a phone call.

Avoid Roofers Who Reach Out to You Right After a Storm

We advocate for getting roof work done right after a storm, especially if your roof exhibits any of these signs of storm roof damage, but roofing companies that aren’t trustworthy tend to take advantage of storms and offer their services right away. This happened so much back when Harvey took place 3 years ago that there were news stories on it. A red flag to pay attention to is if a roofing contractor approaches your home and offers roof repair or replacement right away. While you may very well need Tomball roof repair or Tomball roof replacement, they have no way of knowing which one you need unless they complete an inspection first. Think of it this way: a scammer may offer you an expensive roof replacement when all you need is a repair, or they may offer a few repairs when you really need a roof replacement, thus putting your home at further risk.

Amstill Roofing in Tomball Has Your Best Interests in Mind When it Comes to Tomball Roof Repairs

As we brace for storms rolling in soon as hurricane season begins, you should be careful of fake or poor quality Tomball roofers. In our 40+ years of experience, we have seen far too many Tomball homeowners entrust the wrong roofers and get scammed as a result. In the event that a storm takes place, we recommend speaking with your homeowner’s insurance company and then contacting a trustworthy Tomball roof repair company like Amstill Roofing. We’ll conduct an inspection so that we can recommend only the roof work you need.

Signs Your Spring, TX Roof Has Been Damaged by a Storm and You Need Spring Storm Damage Roof Repairs

If you live in Spring, TX then you know how rainy and stormy our weather conditions can get, especially in May as hurricane season approaches. With these storms comes roof damage, so it’s important to be aware of any signs of storm roof damage that may be present so you can address them. By catching these signs early and on time, you can seek Spring roof repairs much sooner, ensuring that you, your structure, and your family are safe.

Sign 1: Your Roof’s Warranty is Expiring

When you are first considering getting some roof repairs done, you might think back to the last time your roof was replaced. Or, alternatively, if it’s never been replaced you might think back to when you moved in and what the state of your shingles was back then. How long your shingles will last depends on the kind of shingles you used. If you’re unsure, please read our article on the different types of roof shingles we offer. This may give us some insight into the type of Spring roof repairs your home is in need of.

Sign 2: Your Shingles are Damaged

The clearest sign that your Spring, TX roof needs repairs is if your shingles are damaged. If your shingles are fine, they will lay flat and sturdy against your roof. They are a problem if they’re curling up, rotting, missing shingle granules, and/or buckling. We can evaluate the current state of your shingles by conducting a free, no-obligation inspection, in which we climb up onto your roof and take a careful look to discover all of the problem spots. Following this, we’ll recommend any Spring roof repairs necessary in order to reinforce your roof.

Sign 3: Internal Water Damage

Water damage is a good way to determine whether or not your Spring roofing has been compromised, and the best way to find out is by checking your attic. We recommend you look for water stains as well as mold and warping in the walls. Of course, we are also willing to have a look in your attic for you.

Roof Repairs For Your Spring, TX Home Before Hurricane Season

Do you live in Spring, TX, and realize your roof has been through several hurricanes, rainstorms, and hailstorms over the years? Do you have a hard time remembering the last time you got a roof replacement done, or the last time you got some roof repairs done? Or have you simply never had any roof work done? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you might be in dire need of some roof repair, especially now that hurricane season is almost here.

Get a Free Roof Inspection by Our Trained Eyes

Before we can begin your Spring roof repairs, we have to conduct a thorough roof inspection. With over 40 years of roofing experience, we can spot any and all signs of damage to your Spring roof that need to be addressed. We’ll inspect your roof shingles, your gutters, and your siding, and we may also conduct an internal inspection in your attic. Once we determine all the problem spots, we can move forward with our roof repairs. 

This step is crucial because we want to make sure we spot all damage spots so that, when hurricane season arrives, your roof is fully in-tact and ready to protect you as heavy rains, wind, and even hail approach us. If any signs of damaged are missed, then they will easily lead to more problems this summer, such as roof leaks, mold, bacteria, and even pests. You don’t want any of those problems at all, but especially during hurricane season when the weather is more severe.

In Need of a Friendswood Roof Repair Due to the Rain? Amstill Roofing Can Repair it in One Day!

In Need of a Friendswood Roof Repair Due to the Rain? Amstill Roofing Can Repair it in One Day!

April’s showers have certainly brought May flowers, but we still expect to see some rain and hail this month, especially as we come closer to Houston’s Atlantic Hurricane Season. Because of the past rain and even the past hailstorm that hit parts of Houston, your roof may have sustained some unseen damage. Although this can harm your home and your family, Amstill Roofing is prepared to fix it. Here's how rain may have damaged your roof over the years.

Shingles are Your Home’s First Line of Defense

When it comes to your roofing, we work in layers. Your shingles are the outermost layer, so they are meant to take on the damage from weather events so that the underlying roofing maintains its structural integrity.

Accumulated Rain Causes Weakened Shingles

In Friendswood, your shingles last about 10 years, on average. But during those 10 years, your home endures hurricanes, wind, and rainstorms. Over time, this gradually weakens your shingles until it’s time for some roof repairs or a full roof replacement. Shingle weakness can be assessed by examining the shingle granules, but buckling is another sign of roof damage. Buckled shingles are those that appear to have sunk or dipped in the center, which allows water to settle for long periods of time. This brings on problems with mold and bacteria growth and, of course, severe roof leaks.

Friendswood Roof Leaks

When shingles are this weak and compromised, rainwater will easily find a way to flow into your home. Unfortunately, leaks may be present before you even notice them, which enables them to build up inside your attic and the walls before it finally finds an opening. Roof leaks are often spotted through light fixtures or corners, but by the time they are seen, they may have already inflicted damage on your structure.

If you suspect your roof has suffered rain damage over the years, then please contact us for a free roof inspection. This inspection gives us a chance to fully assess the damage and adequately plan for a repair so your roof is as good as new.

Common Houston Roof Repairs Needed in the Spring Season

Common Houston Roof Repairs Needed in the Spring Season

Not only do we recommend seasonal roof inspections during the fall and spring, but we also recommend getting roof repairs done during these months. By getting a roof repair or replacement done in the fall, your house is ready for the holiday season. By getting repairs or a roof replacement completed in the spring, your roof is ready to be enjoyed all summer, and this ensures it is strong and durable enough to withstand the hurricane season. However, spring in Houston brings a lot of damage to your roof, so here are some of the common roof repairs that should be done at this time. 

Hail Damage Roof Repair

As we said before in our blog about how to identify hail damage, we are in the middle of the hail season. Because of this, shingle repair or replacement often takes place. When shingles are punctured by hail, this makes way for devastating leaks to occur, so the ruined shingles must be replaced and/or repaired as soon as possible.

Roof Leaks

You guessed it, roof leaks are another common problem around this time of year. They may be caused by hail, but they may also be caused by aging shingles. If your Houston roof should last an average of 10-15 years and you haven’t replaced it, then chances are they are in poor condition. Perhaps they have curled or even flown off your roof as the result of Hurrican Harvey and you simply didn’t realize. Or, alternatively, your shingles have dipped, allowing for rain to settle and pool. This will easily make room for a bad leak, so if aging is a factor, please get a roof replacement as soon as possible. 


We often talk about debris and precipitation, but pests are another cause for concern. Loose shingles, or missing ones, not only create a breeding ground for mold and bacteria, but they also give squirrels, raccoons, or other pests a chance to find their way into your home through your attic. This creates yet another opening for leaks and disrupts your home.

Because these problems easily arise in the spring, we recommend you first contact us for a free roof inspection. We will thoroughly examine your siding, roof, gutters, downspouts, and may suggest inspecting your attic as well. This way we’ll be able to see how much damage needs to be repaired.
