Roof replacement for your aging or damaged Houston roof is imperative to protecting your home from Houston’s extreme weather. The brutal heat, heavy rains, hail storms, and hurricanes common to the Greater Houston area can cause storm roof damage, thus leading to serious damages to other parts of your home.

A common mistake Houston and Katy homeowners often make is waiting too long to replace their old roof. This is usually due to the fact that they are hoping to save money by not replacing their roof immediately. Unfortunately, what usually ends up happening is these homeowners end up having to pay even more, because now they not only have to pay for a roof replacement, but also for repairs to other parts of their home caused by improper roof protection.

Choose The Right Kind Of Shingles

When looking to replace a roof, the type of roof shingles you choose makes a big difference. The following are shingles that our Houston roofing company recommends:

  • CLAY SHINGLES: Shingles made from clay are the best at deflecting heat, as they do not absorb heat like other shingles do. This is especially beneficial during Houston’s brutal summers. Clay shingles keep your attic cooler, thus keeping your entire home cooler. As a result, your air conditioning unit doesn’t have to work as hard, saving you money on energy bills.
  • LIGHT COLORED SHINGLES: When it comes to choosing the composition of the shingles, thicker is better. Architectural shingles are the thickest, and carry a 50-year warranty, followed by laminate shingles (30-50 year warranty), and 3-tab shingles (20-year warranty). Regardless of which you choose, we here at Amstill Roofing recommend choosing light colored shingles, as they are more effective at deflecting heat than dark colored ones. In addition, because they deflect heat so well, light colored shingles also help in reducing energy usage.

As beautiful as spring days can be in Houston, the weather in our city is known for its fickleness, often changing on a dime. A bright, sunny day can suddenly switch to a torrential downpour at any moment. Severe thunderstorms, heavy rain, and strong winds are all common occurrences during a Houston spring. Just recently, parts of the Greater Houston area have already experienced a tornado and hail storm. With the oncoming hurricane season, the weather will only get more extreme.  

Check For Storm Roof Damage

Extreme weather, like the recent tornado and hail storm, can cause storm roof damage to your roof. Our Houston roofing company suggests that you do a preliminary inspection of your ceilings in every room to check how they are holding up. In addition, we also advise stepping into your attic and having a look, as leaks and cracks may have formed in your roof. It’s imperative to fix these issues as soon as possible, so that they do not lead to more serious issues in the future.

Heavy rains are often accompanied by strong winds, thus exposing your roof to falling tree limbs and branches. Falling tree limbs can severely damage your roof by creating structural cracks or knocking off shingles. If this happens, we suggest that you check the area after the storm has passed, and contact us immediately to perform a proper roof inspection. As always, a thorough roof inspection by one of our roofing experts is completely free.

The Importance of A Healthy Roof

A great characteristic of Houston is that despite being one of the largest cities in the country, it still holds a tremendous amount of beautiful natural scenery. The city is full of large trees, green shrubbery, and beautiful flowers. Unfortunately, one of the reasons plants do so well here is because of the tremendous amount of rain our city receives. This, along with other forms of extreme weather, puts roofs at risk of storm roof damage. Therefore, it’s important to make sure your roof is in top shape at all times.

Hurricane Harvey Scams

Immediately after Hurricane Harvey hit and devastated the Greater Houston area, hundreds of roofing companies suddenly appeared, running scams on desperate and confused homeowners. These roofing contractors would sell their services to Houston residents and demand payment in advance, only to never show up to do any work. As a result, thousands of Houston homeowners were left with hazardous storm roof damage, while getting scammed out of thousands of dollars.

Roofing: An Unregulated Industry

Although a new bill, House Bill 2101, has recently been filed in hopes of preventing such scams from reoccurring, the roofing industry in Texas is still an unregulated industry, thus leaving homeowners susceptible to further scams.

We here at Amstill Roofing have taken on numerous clients who initially were scammed by unsavory roofing contractors. Whenever our Houston roofing company hears about these scams, we not only feel bad for the client, but we also take it personally, as these scammers leave a large blemish on our industry.

As many Houston residents experienced this past Saturday (4/13), in addition to hurricanes and severe thunderstorms, our city is no stranger to hail. Hailstones the size of a baseball fell on the city this past weekend, causing damage to homes and roofs throughout the Greater Houston area.

Signs of Hail Roof Damage to Your Houston Roof

When it comes to your Houston roof, hail can cause severe hail roof damage. The strength of your roof’s shingles can be compromised, thus lessening your roof’s ability to protect your home. Furthermore, if hail is accompanied by high winds, like it was this past weekend, even small hailstones can degrade your shingles and protective granules. If your area was impacted by hail this past weekend, or in the past, here are some things to check for that indicate your roof may have hail roof damage:

  • Granules in gutters. When hailstones hit your roof, granules will often break loose. If you notice shingle granules on your roof or in your gutters, you may have hail roof damage.
  • Hail impacts on shingles. Hail impacts on shingles may show subtle spots or dents, bruises to shingle surfaces, or holes. If you notice dark spots or dimples on your shingles, hail roof damage is likely.
  • Misshapen shingles. When shingles are damaged by hail, they may begin to curl from their original shape. This type of stress often leads to cracked shingles that weaken and age faster than intact shingles.
  • Dents on metal parts of your roof. If your roof contains any areas made of metal, check for any dents or dings. If you notice a substantial number of dents or dings, hail is the likely culprit.
  • Split or dented shingles. If you have wood shingles, hailstones can cause them to crack or completely split apart, thus compromising the strength and integrity of your shingles.

Best Way To Determine Hail Roof Damage

Although the aforementioned signs indicate possible hail roof damage, merely checking for these signs is not a full-proof method to determine if your home has experienced hail roof damage. The surest way to determine if your roof has been damaged by hail is to schedule a free, no obligation roof inspection with Amstill Roofing.

Houston residents are used to the weather changing on a dime. One day it can be sunny and warm, before suddenly turning wet and cold. These abrupt changes in weather can often be detrimental to your home’s roof. In addition, hurricanes, tornadoes, hail storms, and heavy rains can tear off shingles, create dents in the roof, knock foreign objects such as tree limbs onto the roof, and cause roof leaks and internal damage to the roof.

Choosing a Houston roofing company that has decades of experience in successfully conducting roof repairs and roof replacements is a wise choice. Obviously, we are not the only roofing company in Houston that has been around for many years, but when you choose us, you are guaranteed top quality work from our highly trained roofing experts.


Another important factor to consider when choosing a Houston roofing company is customer satisfaction. Our Houston roofing company encourages everyone to check out all of our reviews on Yelp, BBB, Houzz, Google, and Angie’s List.

Since 2014, Houston has seen a major boom in population growth. In fact, our great city ranked No.2 in the nation for most people added in 2017. When the growth of the Houston metropolitan area is considered for the past seven years, it ranks No. 4 in the nation. 

Recently, the growth has started to slow down a bit, but Houston still remains a national hotbed for population growth, and Amstill Roofing is as busy as ever, despite the fact that new housing projects are not as prevalent as before. This is due to the fact that with approximately 7 million people in the Greater Houston area, there are plenty of homes that need roof repair or new roofs. As one of Houston’s most trusted roofing contractors, we advise homeowners to replace their roof once it hits the 20-year mark, or when the warranty is up.

Hitting The 20-Year Milestone

When it comes to roofs, 20 is a very significant number. When your roof hits this age, you should seriously consider marking this milestone with a roof replacement. Assessing the overall health of your roof can often be done without having to get on your roof. If you notice missing shingles, dents, or shingles that seem to blend into one another, these are all telltale signs that your roof has weakened and aged substantially.

Even if your roof looks ok from the ground, it may still have several underlying issues. This is why our Houston roofing company recommends having one of our professional roofing experts conduct a free, no strings attached inspection of your roof. During this thorough inspection, we will check for things such as: storm roof damage, strength and durability of shingles, and areas that allow for standing water and rot, to name a few.

Set Up A Roof Inspection With Amstill Today

Although a roof may look fine at the 20-year mark, old roofs can easily start to fall apart and no longer be able to protect your home. To take a chance on an old roof will likely only lead to major issues in the near future. Therefore, if it has been a long time since you’ve had a new roof, contact us today to set up a free roof inspection.
