April Showers Approach Us, Can Your Houston Roof Handle Them?

April Showers Approach Us, Can Your Houston Roof Handle Them?

We all know the famous saying… “April showers bring May flowers”. Now that we are nearing April, we can expect to see more rainfall in the greater Houston area. As Houstonians are aware, the rain doesn’t just start and end in April… May might also bring heavy showers as we transition to hurricane season in June. Is your roof ready to handle the approaching Houston weather?

Find Out How Sturdy Your Roof Is With an Inspection

We recommend completing a standard interior inspection of your home. You can do so by checking your ceilings and by going into your attic and assessing the ceiling, walls, and insulation. This is a great way to spot a leak before it becomes severe and travels into other parts of the house. Keep an eye out for bulging, bowing, and water stains. If you see any of these signs, it is likely that your roof is damaged and you are in need of repairs, or even a roof replacement. If you spot outside light coming in through the ceiling, then this is another sign that your Houston roof’s integrity has been compromised. 

We will also complete a thorough exterior inspection at no charge by climbing onto your roof and examining your shingles, gutters, and even your chimney flashing for signs such as:

  • Shingle curling
  • Missing shingles
  • Buckling or dips in the rooftop
  • Loose/cracked flashing and shingles
  • Missing shingle granules

The Importance of a Well-Prepared Roof

Houston’s weather is warm, humid, and hot for the majority of the year. As wonderful as that may sound to some, this coupled with our frequent rain easily wreaks havoc on your roof, putting the rest of your structure and even your family at risk. The Atlantic Hurricane Season only worsens the condition of your roof, especially if it has undergone previous storm damage or hail damage. Because of how easy it is for your roof to suffer continuous damage, it is crucial that we complete roof repairs and roof replacements if necessary, as soon as possible. Our experienced inspectors will be able to determine what is best for you.
