Roof Replacement: Upgrade Your Houston Roof In Time For The Holidays

Roof Replacement: Upgrade Your Houston Roof In Time For The Holidays

It seems this fall is one of the colder ones the greater Houston area has experienced, and we have also had quite a fair share of strong storms. It's safe to say that this year, Houston weather has wreaked havoc on its homes. As it gets colder, it's a good idea to look back and determine how long you've had your roof for. With holiday season approaching and lights and ornaments going up on your roof soon, you'll want to be sure it will withstand the season's decorations and colder weather.

Is It Time For A Houston Roof Upgrade? Get A Free Inspection

On average, your roof can last about 10 to 15 years, but it can last even longer, depending on which shingles are laid over your rooftop. If it's been about 10 years, then it's likely time for a roof replacement and for you to get a roof inspection. At Amstill Roofing, we offer free roof inspections whenever you need them. When we inspect your roof we will take a close look at the integrity of your shingles and take note of any loose, weakened, curling, buckling, or missing shingles, and even damaged chimney flashing. If we find your shingles are exhibiting extensive damage as a result of aging and the rough hurricanes we have had in the last few years, which bring heavy winds, hail, and debris, then we will recommend a full replacement.

Why You Should Replace Your Whole Roof Rather Than Just Some Severely Damaged Shingles

Many times our customers ask if they can get away with replacing the shingles that are most damaged instead of their full roof. More often than not, a full replacement is absolutely necessary. This is because once a few shingles are compromised, the neighboring shingles will quickly follow suit. Because shingles are all nailed together, the moment one goes missing, you can very quickly lose more at a time.

Without enough shingles, or with severely weakened shingles that are left unaddressed, you will not only allow outside air in, which can raise the cost of your electric bill, but you will also let in severe leaks that will inevitably put the rest of your family and your structure at risk. Additionally, if we just replace the shingles that are most damaged, then we are forgetting about the shingles that are well on their way to becoming just as big a problem.

Amstill Roofing Completes One-Day Roof Replacement

If you've had your shingles for 10-15 years, please contact our roofing team so we can complete our initial inspection and offer an estimate. We will also discuss financing options, and then we will bring the replacement roofing material and complete the job, usually within a day. Let us keep your home and your family safe this holiday season.

Signs You Need a Houston Roof Replacement

Signs You Need a Houston Roof Replacement

Your roof is the most essential part of your house that protects you from the outside elements, so it is imperative that you know the signs your roof exhibits when it's time for a roof replacement.

Aging

Aging is the first, most obvious sign you should look at. Most roofs last an average of 20 years, but your shingles may mean your roof lasts more or less than 20 years. However, at Amstill Roofing we recognize that it can be easy to lose track of when you last received a new roof, so it's also a great idea to go into your attic and look around for water stains or damp and soggy insulation. This could mean your roof has given out and has slowly allowed for water to seep in.

Are Your Shingles Still In-Tact?

The next key sign that you are in need of a roof replacement lies within your shingles. They should lay flat against your roof, so keep an eye on the edges and corners of your rooftop, where shingles are most prone to curling. Although you should look at your roof from below so you can get a clear view of any curling that has taken place, this isn't the only damage that shingles can undertake. Cracks and sunk in areas and missing shingles are also clear signs that your roof has aged and given out.

Another sign to look for when assessing if you need a roof replacement is checking the granules on your shingles. Shingles are topped with granules as a way to enforce them and offer some added protection. If you find that they're missing granules, then your shingles have been compromised.

Roof Rotting

An obvious indicator that your roof needs immediate replacement is finding signs of rot. Trapped moisture and sagging spots are also hints that suggest it's time for a new roof. Trapped moisture is easy to spot out. If you see sections of your roofing that have mold, fungus streaking, and even moss, then this means your roof is holding moisture and you quickly need a replacement.

Amstill Roofing Will Complete One-Day Roof Replacement in Houston

We don't recommend you climb onto your roof if you don't have the proper training or equipment, but if you can see from afar that your roof is exhibiting some of these signs, please contact us for a free inspection. We will climb up onto your roof and conduct a thorough inspection to ensure you get a full roo replacement.  

As The Season Changes, Consider Roof Replacement

As The Season Changes, Consider Roof Replacement

It seems like this summer has been one of the hottest ever to hit the Greater Houston area. For many homeowners in Houston and the surrounding areas, the roofs of their homes have been taking a beating from the heat. If your roof is old and in need of roof repairs or roof replacement, more than likely the heat has been piercing through your roof into your home, damaging the roof’s structure and causing your energy bills to go up.

As a homeowner, roof replacement is a necessary process at least every 20 years. While more expensive shingles such as laminate and architectural shingles can sometimes last up to 50 years, our Houston roofing company still recommends having your roof’s health checked by one of our roofing professionals.

The surest method to knowing whether your home is in need of a roof replacement or not is to have one of our Houston roofing experts come conduct a thorough roof inspection. From this inspection, our experienced roofing professional will determine whether your roof is in need of roof repairs, roof replacement, or nothing at all. This roof inspection is completely free of charge with no obligation or catch.

After Summer Ends, Expect More Rough Weather

The Greater Houston area, including Sugar Land, Memorial, Katy, and the Energy corridor, experiences extreme weather conditions throughout the year. Extreme heat, heavy rain, hail, hurricanes, tornadoes, and freezes are all common to our great city. Therefore, even when this crazy heat subsides, your roof can still take a beating from the heavy rains and strong winds that come with the upcoming hurricane season. Having your old roof replaced with a new one from our Houston roofing company ensures that your home will be protected from anything the weather throws its way.

Eliminate the Guesswork With Roof Inspection

If you have any doubt about the condition of your roof, don’t hesitate to contact our Houston roofing contractor company ASAP! There’s no sense in risking your home’s protection, especially when a detailed roof inspection is completely free of charge. Let us help give you peace of mind in knowing your home is properly protected.

Houston Roof Replacement After a Hail Storm

Houston Roof Replacement After a Hail Storm

If you've been a victim of extensive hail storm damage, we can often replace it for you within a day, all while ensuring the integrity and safety of your Houston home. However, there are a few key steps involved in the process.

First, hail can cause severe damage to your roof. This can put your entire house and your family at risk, so it's imperative that you file an insurance claim with your home insurance company after a storm.

Schedule an Inspection Date When Both the Insurance Adjuster and Our Roof Inspector Are Present

Know that there is a limited amount of time to make claims after a storm. We highly recommend allowing our roof inspector to be present with your adjuster so that we can ensure you get a full claim of all hail damage. Adjusters complete their roof inspections during business hours, so if you are unable to make the appointment yourself, we can represent you if you allow us. You may think of us as your second pair of eyes.

Replacing your Roof

Once a claim is made and we are cleared to begin work, we will arrive with the correct roofing materials. When we arrive at your house, we will start by preparing and protecting the surrounding area. Roof replacement can be a bit messy, which is why we protect your windows and landscaping with plywood and tarp. 

Tearing Down Existing Roofing

Now the real work begins. We will strip your old roofing all the way down to its current decking. This allows us to start with a blank canvas and ensure the utmost quality for years to come. Once we get to the very base layer, we will apply high-quality waterproofing to all of the valleys on your roof. Once this is done, we will lay 30-pound felt over the rooftop.

Replacing Your Shingles

Next, it's time for all-new shingles to go onto your roof. Whatever type we use will have already been factored into the claim as determined by your insurance company. Once we lay down the shingles according to manufacturer guidelines, we will apply enhanced high profile ride shingles on top of the ridges. This complements the rest of the roofing and adds more protection.

Bringing Your Vents and Chimney Up to Code

Over time it's common for regulations and requirements to change, which is why we take advantage of your need for roof replacement and we'll check on the integrity of your vents and chimney. If needed, we'll replace them and re-paint them to match the color of your shingles.

Contact Amstill Roofing For One Day Roof Replacement

Our Houston roofing team is highly experienced, so 95% of our jobs are completed within the day. If your roof has undergone severe hail damage, please contact us today so that we can help you get a brand new roof that will last for years to come.

Summer's Almost Over, Time For Roof Replacement?

Summer's Almost Over, Time For Roof Replacement?

Just like that, we are at the tail end of the 2019 summer! Although summer doesn’t officially end until September, most kids are already back at school, thus making it a great time to get a roof replacement.

Both new and longtime homeowners should consider having their roof inspected to determine whether any roof repairs or roof replacement is necessary. A complete roof replacement is usually necessary once the roof nears the 20-year mark. However, even if your roof is less than 20 years old or looks like it’s in good condition, there may be significant wear and tear unnoticeable to the naked eye. Houston roofs often sustain major damage from extreme weather conditions, thus lessening their lifetime. High heat, heavy rains, hail, and strong winds can all play a detrimental role in how your roof performs.

When To Consider Roof Replacement

During a roof inspection from our Houston roofing company, our professional roofing inspector examines every part of your roof to assess its overall health. If no issues are discovered or only minor roof repairs are necessary, our Houston roofing inspector will inform you of such, while providing a timeframe for how much longer your roof will last. In the event our roofing inspector discovers issues, they will point them out to you and explain the consequences of not properly addressing them.

A common sign of damage to your roof is a leak in your ceiling, as leaks are often caused by cracks, breaks, or tears in the roof. Correcting a roof leak quickly is imperative to avoiding more serious, expensive damages to your Houston roof in the near future.

A huge determining factor of your roof’s health is the condition of its shingles. Our city’s extreme weather conditions can cause your roof shingles to become weak and loosened. As a result, strong winds or flying debris can easily remove these shingles from your roof. If you notice shingles missing from your roof, this could be a sign that they are old or brittle, and a roof replacement is necessary.
