Although Texas is known for being prone to hurricanes (who can forget Hurricane Harvey?), often overlooked is the fact that our great state also receives a fair share of tornadoes. In fact, according to the National Weather Service, Texas has more tornadoes than any other state by a large sum. Here in Houston, it is not uncommon for twisters to impact our city.

When a Tornado Hits Your Houston Neighborhood

Whether or not a tornado actually touches down on your home or in the vicinity, your roof is at a high risk of storm roof damage. Strong winds from twisters can tear off shingles, while flying debris such as tree limbs can smash into the roof. As a result, your roof can sustain roof leaks, dents, and holes, thus exposing your home to further damage.

After going through a major storm, our Houston roofing company highly recommends that you have an insurance adjuster come out to assess your home for any roof damages. If you prefer, we are more than happy to send one of our professional roofing experts to meet the insurance adjuster at your home to assist in the assessment.

Here at Amstill, we have been protecting Houston area homes since 1974. With over four decades of experience in roof repair, roof replacement, and assessing roof damage, you can be sure you are in good hands. We hope you never have to experience a tornado, but we want to make sure your roof is tornado ready in the event one comes into your vicinity. If your roof has already been damaged by a tornado, we are here to put it back in perfect condition.

The arrival of spring brings the perfect time of year to schedule a free roof inspection with Amstill Roofing. This is the season before the blistering heat and humidity of summer hits the Greater Houston area. It is also a good time to consider a roof replacement as we gear up to face the summer hurricane season. Let’s take a look at some of the things to look for when considering a roof replacement


  • Age of Roof – It is very important to know the age of your roof, as our Houston roofing company recommends replacing roofs that are 20 years old or older. Although your roof may look like it’s in good condition, there may be significant wear and tear unseen to the naked eye. Your roof’s overall health can only be determined through a thorough roof inspection. Your Houston roof constantly experiences extreme weather conditions such as heavy rains, strong winds, and blistering heat and humidity. This constant barrage of extreme weather can severely weaken your roof shingles, especially if they have not been changed in 20 years. Therefore, it’s a good idea to schedule a thorough roof inspection with our Houston roofing company to determine whether a complete roof replacement is necessary.  
  • Shingle Condition – If the shingles on your roof are misshapen or breaking, then it may be time for a roof replacement. Your roof is your home’s first line of defense against harsh weather conditions, with shingles added to your roof as an extra layer of protection. Even if your shingles are relatively new, they are still subject to becoming damaged, misshapen, or loosened due to Houston’s harsh weather. Therefore, it’s wise to keep an eye on your shingles throughout the year.
  • Weak Spots – If you see dips or concave shaped dents in your roof, you may have weak spots in your roof. Weak spots can often be seen without the need for a thorough roof inspection. These weak spots often collect water that can lead to substantial roof damage.


Summer often brings some of the harshest weather conditions to Houston. If your roof is not in great condition, heavy rains, hurricane winds, and golf ball-sized hail can spell disaster for your roof. Therefore, spring is a great time to schedule an inspection with Amstill Roofing. Receiving a thorough roof inspection from our roofing company will determine the overall health of your roof, and whether roof repairs or roof replacement is your best option. We have been protecting homes in the Greater Houston area since 1974 and we look forward to protecting yours as well. Call us today.

The weather in Houston can often be described as bi-polar, moving unpredictably from one extreme to another. In addition, the weather in Houston brings a host of conditions that can cause a myriad of roof issues, leading to the need for roof repairs or roof replacement. Let’s take a closer look at these weather conditions and the issues they cause:


  • Extreme Heat – Houston summers are brutal. The high temperatures and extreme humidity can cause roof shingles to become brittle and weak. As a result, the shingles begin to break apart and loosen, thus exposing areas of the roof. In addition, with Houston’s ever-changing weather from one day to the next, a heat wave after a period of cooler temperatures can cause the roof to swell.
  • Heavy Rains – The Greater Houston area sees its fair share of rain each year. Heavy rains not only subject your home to flooding, but they can also damage the interior of your roof by leaking into cracks and crevices. Even worse, water can leak through your attic’s insulation, thus collapsing through the ceiling’s sheetrock.
  • Strong Winds – Hurricane season in Texas brings some of the worst weather conditions of the year. In addition to heavy rains, hurricane season brings strong winds that can wreak havoc on your roof. Storm winds can rip shingles off while also knocking tree limbs and other types of debris onto the roof. This can severely dent or break portions of the roof, leading to severe leaks and other issues.
  • Hail – Texas experiences more hail damage than any other state in the country. In Houston, hail often the size of a golf ball can cause serious damage to both the roof and entire structure of the home. Therefore, after a hail storm hits, our Houston roofing company recommends bringing our roofing experts in to conduct a full inspection of your roof.

Your Houston roof is constantly being exposed to some of the most extreme and unforgiving weather conditions in the country. Therefore, if your roof is close to the 20-year mark or hasn’t been inspected in a long time, then it’s time for an inspection. Serving the Greater Houston area, including Memorial, Katy, Sugarland and the Energy Corridor, Amstill is ready to help protect your home with a healthy roof. Call us today to set up a free inspection.

The arrival of March marks the time of year when we start to see more hail storms. In fact, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), the number of hail loss claims per month increases by an average of over 100,000 from March to June. When it comes to major storms, that at times can cover multiple states, the costs reach approximately $1 billion. In addition, Texas experiences more hail damage than any other state in the nation.  Of those damages reported to personal property, it was Personal Property Homeowners (PPHO) policies that were affected the most. These home damage claims made up more than 50% of the overall claims.

The most common type of issue resulting from hail damage is hail roof damage. Having a healthy roof is imperative to protecting your entire home from hail and other adverse weather conditions, as the roof is your home’s first and often only line of defense. This is why our Houston roofing company stresses the importance of keeping your roof in great shape at all times.


If a storm with hail has hit your home, we encourage you to have your roof inspected by our Houston roofing company. During this free inspection, our expert roofing professionals will thoroughly inspect your roof for damages. If there is any storm roof damage, it is important to have your roof fixed before the next inevitable storm hits. Fortunately, here at Amstill, we finish most projects within a day, thus quickly keeping a small roof problem from snowballing into a major one.

Serving the Greater Houston area, Amstill Roofing specializes in roof replacement and roof repairs for homeowners who have experienced storm or hail roof damage. With an increase in the number of hail storms in Houston right around the corner, we want to ensure the protection of your home with a healthy, strong roof.

With the summer fast approaching, here in Houston, that means hurricane season is right around the corner! Hard to believe, but it was only two years ago that Houston experienced one of the worst storms the nation has ever seen: Hurricane Harvey. The devastating floods and property damage left in Harvey’s wake caused experts to deem Harvey a 500 or 1000-year storm.

Although we are not likely to see a storm of Harvey’s magnitude again in the near future, this doesn’t change the fact that Houston and surrounding areas are prone to hurricanes every summer that leave a substantial amount of storm damage. This is why every year as the hurricane season approaches, we here at Amstill Roofing remind Houstonians to make sure their roofs are Hurricane ready.

Getting Your Roof Hurricane Ready

At our Greater Houston area roofing company, our roofing contractors are ready to help protect your home by providing a strong, secure roof. When building our roofs, we use only the highest quality materials, thus ensuring that our roofs are guaranteed to stand up to the various weather conditions Houston’s hurricane season is known to throw at us.

Roofs typically last about 20 years. Therefore, if you have a roof 20 years or older, we usually recommend getting it replaced. The most accurate method to determine whether your roof needs to be replaced or repaired is to undergo a roof inspection performed by our professional roofing experts. This inspection is free of charge, and will measure the overall health of your roof. In addition, making sure we educate you during the entire process is of the utmost importance to us, so that you can fully understand all that we do, and feel secure in working with us.


With the hurricane season fast approaching, now is as good a time as ever to make sure your roof is hurricane ready. If you live in the Greater Houston area, including Memorial, Katy, Sugarland and the Energy Corridor, contact Amstill Roofing today to schedule your free roof inspection.

Texas is known for unforgiving and severe weather that can wreak havoc across the state. Anyone who has been through Hurricane Harvey or storms carrying golf ball-sized hail can attest to this fact. The damages these storms inflict on homeowners has millions of dollars in storm damages, most noticeably roof repair and roof replacement.

Roofing Contractors: An Unregulated Industry

The roofing industry is currently an unregulated industry, thus leaving vulnerable homeowners open to being scammed.

Recently, a new bill was filed in hopes of changing the way roofing contractors are regulated in Texas. Looking to protect consumers, House Bill 2101 was filed by State Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, R-Southlake, which requires roofing companies to register with the state.

The bill would also create a state website that allows the consumer to check the credentials of a roofing company, and to see if they are legally able to do business in the state of Texas. The bill also calls for a $250 price tag to register for the first two-year term, and $100 to renew. This helps prevent issues such as the one that occurred immediately after Hurricane Harvey from happening again, where hundreds of roofing companies suddenly appeared, selling their services to desperate and confused home owners, only to make off with thousands of dollars without ever doing any work.

Through this bill, the homeowner can easily log online, check the registration number of the roofing company standing in front of them, and check their credentials.  

A Houston Roofing Company You Can Trust

Amstill is aware of the fact that there is tremendous distrust in the roofing industry. This is why our team makes it a point to be an honest roofing company above and beyond reproach.

Therefore, regardless of whether the aforementioned bill passes or not, you can be sure that with Amstill, you are getting a roofing company built on transparency and integrity.

In addition, our commitment to integrity ensures that we would never suggest any unnecessary repairs.

When it comes to roof repairs, having a roofer you can trust is essential to receiving high quality work at a fair rate. In an industry too often associated with scams and undesirable business practices, the Amstill name stands above and beyond other roofing companies. Family owned and operated since 1974, our roofing company is known throughout Katy and the Greater Houston area for our integrity and high quality work.

Using a thorough and detailed inspection, Amstill accurately pinpoints all issues. In addition, we promise to never suggest any unnecessary repairs.


Aside from roofing materials that can last for more than 50 years, such as architectural shingles, roofs usually last about 20 years. Old roof shingles become brittle and weak, and can break or peel off the roof. This in turn leaves the roofing structure prone to more severe problems.

It is often easy to tell if a roof is getting too old by looking at the colors of the shingles. Faded shingles is often a key sign that your shingles need to be replaced.

For older roofs, getting a roof replacement is often much easier and cost effective than trying to continually address individual roof repair situations. This is because repairing individual problems with your roof doesn’t change the age of your roof. Therefore, a roof replacement is sometimes the best option.


For over four decades, Amstill Roofing has been Houston’s most trusted roofing company, providing excellent work and great customer service. We look forward to providing you the same. Contact us today.

Now, is the perfect time of year to have your roof inspected by our roofing experts, so that your roof will be ready to withstand the unforgiving weather summer brings.


As all of us who went through Hurricane Harvey can attest to, Houston’s hurricane season can be a very challenging time. The heavy rains and winds brought by summer storms cause millions in property damages each year. These storms, coupled with the brutal heat and humidity of Houston summers, can wreak havoc on your roof if it is not in proper shape. For instance, after Harvey, millions were spent on storm damage roof replacements alone.

This is why at Amstill Roofing, we recommend twice yearly roof inspections to ensure that your roof is always in the best of shape, ready to withstand Houston’s unpredictable weather. Spring and fall are perfect times of year to have our Houston roofing company inspect your roof.


Seasonal inspections allow us to catch problems as they arise, thus saving you money and avoiding expensive repairs in the future. In addition, a well-maintained roof can help with your heating and cooling bills, as a healthy roof keeps your house well insulated.

As we all know, the rain in the Southwest Houston area, even out in Katy, Sugarland, Memorial, and the Energy Corridor, can be unforgiving.

These problems sometimes ruin not only your roof, but also your ceilings and floors inside your home.


Whether you live in Katy, Memorial, Sugarland, Energy Corridor, or the Greater Houston area, give us a call so that we can make sure your roof is in the best shape it has ever been. Schedule your spring inspection with our roofing company so that your roof will be ready for the summer!

At Amstill Roofing, we recommend getting a free inspection of your roof by one of our expert roofers.

Let’s take a look at a few of them.


Your home is where you invest a great amount of time and money. Therefore, you want your house looking its best. But let’s face it, you can have a beautiful house, but if the roof is damaged or missing shingles, the house automatically becomes less pleasant to look at. Such visible damages are not only unsightly, but also often a sign of a more serious issue. When a roof shows signs of physical damage, it is possible there is internal damage as well.

Preventing long-term roofing damage is why our Houston roofing company recommends regular inspections of your roof. If your roof is showing signs of visible damage, we are ready to conduct a free inspection right away.


Winter nights in Houston and Katy often require us to turn up the heat in our homes. A little known fact is that the condition of your roof often correlates with the cost of your heating bill. A healthy roof helps insulate your home by keeping the heat enclosed. However, a damaged roof can allow heat to escape, thus costing you a fortune when it comes to heating charges. The best way to ensure you are keeping you and your family warm and not breaking the bank, is to make sure your roof is in healthy condition.


If your roof is showing signs of physical wear and tear, or you suspect there may be internal damage as well, contact us today. Serving Katy, Memorial, Energy Corridor, Cypress, or SugarLand, we offer honest and thorough roof services for your home.
