Now that Houston’s infamous hurricane season is officially over, you may be wondering if your roof sustained damage and what repairs you need to make. While most Houston roofs can last about 10-20 years, on average, its lifespan will ultimately depend on exposure to hectic weather. More often than not we find that roof replacement is necessary. Here's what you can expect.
First Things First: Have Amstill Roofing Complete a Free Roof Inspection
Before you schedule a replacement for your aging and damaged roof, we highly recommend you first get an inspection. When we arrive for your free Houston roof inspection, we will carefully look at it and find problem spots. If we determine that replacement is necessary, you may want to contact your home insurance company to see if you can file any Houston weather and storm-related claims.
Meeting With An Insurance Adjuster
Once you have filed a claim with your insurance, the company will send out an adjuster to conduct their own inspection. Because our inspections are free, we recommend scheduling a date that allows both our inspector and the adjuster to have a look. This way we can ensure the adjuster doesn’t miss even the smallest signs of damage that warrant a roof replacement.
Replacing Your Roof
Next, it’s time for us to begin our work. We will start by preparing the surrounding area. Roof replacement can be a bit messy, so we protect your windows and landscaping with plywood and tarp.
Tearing Down Your Current Roofing
We will completely strip your roofing back to its current decking so that we can work with a blank canvas. Afterward, we will water-proof the deck and then lay 30 pound felt over it.
Replacing Your Shingles
The next step is to add brand new shingles according to manufacturer guidelines, followed by enhanced high profile shingles on top of any ridges. This complements the rest of the roofing and adds more protection.
Bringing Vents and Chimney up to Code
While we work on your roof, we’ll check on the integrity of your vents and chimney. If necessary, we’ll replace and repaint them.
