Signs Of Rosenberg Hail Roof Damage

Seeing as we are in the middle of peak hail season and nearing the start of hurricane season, you probably won’t be surprised if you hear hailstones hit your window or your roof shingles. Because of this, it’s a good idea to be aware of what Rosenberg roof hail damage looks like and what our Houston roof experts can do to help you.

Roof Shingles Damaged By Hail

Different types of roof shingles offer different degrees of protection against Rosenberg hail roof damage. When it comes to hail damage to your shingles, you may expect to see chipped areas across your roof–namely roof shingles that exhibit spots where some granules are missing.

Roof shingle granules serve as the outermost layer of protection for your roof. When shingle granules are missing, the underlying material becomes exposed, making it easier for Rosenberg roof leaks to occur.

Gutters and Downspouts Can Also Be Affected By Hail Damage

Hail primarily inflicts damage on structures by denting them due to the force at which the hailstones are falling. Contrary to what most homeowners believe, a small piece of hail can inflict damage. In fact, hailstones as small as a quarter are capable of damaging your gutters and downspouts.

If a hail storm occurs in your area, then we recommend you contact our Houston roof experts as soon as possible for a free roof inspection. Inspection after a storm is crucial to ensure that if there’s any damage, you address it quickly.

We will also provide you with documentation of our findings.

Leaky Friendswood Roof After Recent Storms? Amstill Can Help

As we near the start of hurricane season, heavy downpours become increasingly synonymous with spring in the Friendswood area. The Greater Houston Area received plenty of rain, wind, and localized flooding earlier this month, and with this weather, a Friendswood roof leak isn’t unheard of. In this article, we will discuss what causes a leaky Friendswood roof and how our Houston roof experts can help. 

What Causes A Friendswood Roof Leak?

Roof leaks are anything but sudden. They often go unnoticed until they escape through a light fixture or a corner between your ceiling and walls, but the truth is, they have been forming in the attic for an extended period of time. If severe enough, you will need a Friendswood roof replacement as soon as possible.

A Houston roof leak is caused by water that makes its way through your roofing system and into your home. This could occur for a number of reasons, including:

Poor Shingle Installation

If you received a Friendswood roof replacement rather recently and discovered a roof leak, this was likely due to poor roof shingle installation. Incorrectly installed shingles create spaces in between your structure that allow water to make its way in.

When your roof shingles aren’t adequately secured, an increase in winds will further destroy those lacking seals, often resulting in torn off roof shingles. Pretty quickly, the rest of your roof shingles follow suit. To remedy this, you will require Friendswood roof replacement by our Houston roof experts to make certain that your shingles are installed to last.

Roof Rot

If your attic isn’t sufficiently equipped to fend off excess heat and moisture, then this will inevitably lead to roof rot. This occurs when the decking beneath your roof has succumbed to excess humidity, heat, and water. Once this occurs, your roof shingles no longer have a surface to adhere to, inviting a Friendswood roof leak to form. At this point, you may be in need of a Friendswood roof replacement in order to replace the decking and affected roof shingles.

If you notice or suspect a leak, then please contact us immediately so we can conduct a thorough roof inspection. This inspection will help us determine what the root cause of your Friendswood roof leak is and whether or not your home needs a Friendswood roof replacement.

Houston roof experts identify Katy roof hail damage

Has Your Katy Roof Sustained Hail Damage?

As we enjoy the spring weather, be mindful that we are also in peak hail season through May. Although we have yet to experience severe thunder or hail storms, we won't be out of the woods for a while, so it’s a good idea to know what to look out for so you can address your Katy roof damage in a timely manner. Because of this, this article will break down some of the most common signs that hail damage has taken place on your roofing and what you can do to protect it.

Hail Damage On Your Roof Gutters and Downspouts

Hail primarily inflicts damage on structures by denting them due to the force at which the hailstones are falling. Contrary to what most homeowners believe, a small piece of hail can inflict damage. In fact, hailstones only need to be the size of a quarter to damage your gutters and downspouts.

Shingles Suffer The Most Katy Roof Hail Damage

We install multiple types of roof shingles on Katy homes, each of which is designed and built to withstand different levels of Katy weather damage. Hail damage to your roof shingles appears in different ways, but you can easily identify Katy roof hail damage if you see chipped areas/bald patches on your roof shingles. If you spot roof shingle granules in your gutters, this also suggests that hail may have struck your roof shingles and damaged them.

Addressing Katy Roof Hail Damage

Keep in mind that once your roof has been dented or shows bald spots anywhere, this means that the material has been compromised, making it easier for greater damage to take place. Roof damage tends to snowball, so it is imperative that you address it as soon as possible.

If your neighborhood experiences a hail storm, we recommend you first contact us for a free roof inspection. This gives us a chance to evaluate your roof for any damage, such as roof leaks, torn or curled roof shingles, bald spots, and even sagging areas. 

Katy Hail Damage Roof Replacement By Our Houston Roof Experts

Once we complete our free Katy hail damage roof inspection, we will make a recommendation on whether your roof needs a complete Katy roof replacement, or if your roof will last a few more years without the need for any roof work. If you think your home has Katy roof hail damage, then please contact us so we can schedule a free roof inspection. Rest assured that if hail damage is found, we will recommend the best course of action on how to safeguard your roof and your loved ones quickly.

Sugar Land roof shingles tearing off due to roof wind damage

Sugar Land Wind Roof Damage And How To Spot It

Spring has sprung and that means we may anticipate more rain showers and the occasional heavy wind gusts. Storms may grow more aggressive as hurricane season approaches us on June 1st. Because of this, now is a great time to learn about Sugar Land roof wind damage and how to spot it so that you can take care of it in a timely manner.

What Makes Sugar Land Roof Damage Caused By Wind So Serious?

Wind may toss around debris, such as garbage, branches, and even lawn decor. Though these items seem small and harmless, they can easily puncture your rooftop shingles, which can then leave room for water leaks and cause damage to your roofing insulation. Further, the wind blows very unevenly depending on what is in its path, which means there is plenty of potential for various types of damage to take place. 

How To Spot Sugar Land Roof Wind Damage

Even though there are several ways in which wind can damage your roofing, here are some of the most common types of damage to beware of:

Curling Roof Shingles

One of the most obvious signs that wind damage has taken place is if your roof shingles have started to curl up. Unfortunately, it’s hard to tell from a window if your roof shingles have curled, but you may have some luck by looking up at your roof from the ground. However, the best way to be certain that your roof shingles have curled is by getting a professional roof inspection as soon as possible, as curling shingles may rip off completely and leave bald spots.

Damaged Chimney Flashing 

You may be able to tell if your roof has sustained wind damage by checking the chimney flashing. Chimney flashing is commonly made up of aluminum, vinyl, steel, or copper and encloses the space between the roof and the chimney to help prevent water from entering your home. Sometimes, especially if your roof hasn’t been repaired in a while, wind can break the seal between the flashing and the chimney, so if it looks out of place, it’s likely because of the wind.

Address Sugar Land Roof Wind Damage ASAP With A Free Roof Inspection By Amstill Roofing

As with any type of roof damage, it snowballs and worsens the longer it’s left unaddressed. For example, curling shingles may create a breeding ground for mold, moss roof damage, and even algae roof damage, while damaged flashing may create space for roof leaks to form. If you think your roof may have suffered some wind damage, or if you have yet to get it checked on after previous wind/rain storms, then please contact us so we can schedule a free roof inspection and assess the level of damage your roof has sustained. Following our inspection, we may recommend Sugar Land roof repairs or Sugar Land roof replacement.
