Houston Roof Leak From Recent Downpours? Amstill Can Help
Hurricane season is officially over! This historic hurricane season brought a record-breaking 30 named storms. Now, it’s time to tend to your roof so you can protect and reinforce its integrity for years to come. Although Houston may not have been as affected by the Atlantic hurricane season as other places around the gulf, we experienced plenty of downpours that could have resulted in leaks if you haven’t checked on your roof or completed any repairs in the last few years. In this article, we will discuss what causes roof leaks and what Amstill can do to help!
What Causes A Houston Roof Leak?
A Houston roof leak is caused by water that makes its way through your roofing system and into your home. Roof leaks are anything but sudden, though. In fact, 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. This could occur for a number of reasons:
- Poor shingle installation
- Poorly installed shingles create spaces in between your structure that allow rain to make its way in.
- Aging roof
- Aging and, most importantly, the damage that inevitably takes place as your roof gets older, causes your roof shingles to become weakened and compromised, which breaks the seal that holds your roof together with the decking to protect the inside of your home from the outside elements. Events such as heavy winds and hail can harm the integrity of your roof.
