April’s showers have certainly brought May flowers, but we still expect to see some rain and hail this month, especially as we come closer to Houston’s Atlantic Hurricane Season. Because of the past rain and even the past hailstorm that hit parts of Houston, your roof may have sustained some unseen damage. Although this can harm your home and your family, Amstill Roofing is prepared to fix it. Here's how rain may have damaged your roof over the years.
When it comes to your roofing, we work in layers. Your shingles are the outermost layer, so they are meant to take on the damage from weather events so that the underlying roofing maintains its structural integrity.
In Friendswood, your shingles last about 10 years, on average. But during those 10 years, your home endures hurricanes, wind, and rainstorms. Over time, this gradually weakens your shingles until it’s time for some roof repairs or a full roof replacement. Shingle weakness can be assessed by examining the shingle granules, but buckling is another sign of roof damage. Buckled shingles are those that appear to have sunk or dipped in the center, which allows water to settle for long periods of time. This brings on problems with mold and bacteria growth and, of course, severe roof leaks.
When shingles are this weak and compromised, rainwater will easily find a way to flow into your home. Unfortunately, leaks may be present before you even notice them, which enables them to build up inside your attic and the walls before it finally finds an opening. Roof leaks are often spotted through light fixtures or corners, but by the time they are seen, they may have already inflicted damage on your structure.
