Can Your Houston Roof Withstand Tropical Storms and Hurricanes?

Houston dodged a bullet this past weekend when New Orleans took the brunt of Tropical storm/Hurricane Barry’s force. However, we just got lucky, as our city is no stranger to getting hit by several tropical storms and hurricanes each year. This is why having a healthy roof is of utmost importance, as the roof is your home’s first line of defense against extreme weather conditions.

Heavy winds and rain, extreme heat, and hail are common to a Houston summer and can wreak havoc on your roof, causing major storm roof damage. In addition, falling tree limbs and debris picked up by strong winds can severely dent your roof and rip off its shingles.

WHAT OUR HOUSTON ROOF INSPECTORS CHECK FOR

During our free roof inspection, our Houston roof professionals check for many things that can negatively impact the health of your roof, here are a few of them:

MISSING SHINGLES: Missing shingles can lead to your roof losing even more shingles, thus weakening the strength and effectiveness of your roof. In addition, missing shingles can cause leaks into your attack that alter the effectiveness of your roof. These leaks can cause mold to form, not only weakening your roof, but causing a health hazard as well.

• DIVOTS: Divots are weak spots in your roof that are often caused by cracks or breaks in your roof structure. Rotting material such as fallen leaves can also erode your roof and lead to divots. Divots can cause severe internal roof damage that puts your home’s protection at risk. Furthermore, water can accumulate in divots, compromising your roof's structural foundation.

• AGE: Most roofs last about 20 years. Therefore, if you have had your home for 20 years or more, your shingles are likely worn out and need to be replaced.

June is a great time to get your roof inspected before more heat and the hurricane season hits. Most jobs are done within a day and we promise to never suggest any unnecessary repairs.
