July Brings the Heat. Can Your Roof Handle It?

This month is going to be hot. How do we know that? Because it’s Houston and it’s July. But what does that mean for your roof? Honestly, nothing good.

The average temperature in Houston during the month of July is 94 degrees (that goes for August too). When temperatures hit this high, the temperature in your roof can hit up to 160 degrees. That’s insanely hot.

When extreme heat hits your roof, it can cause your roof to loosen and weaken. When the heat subsides and cooler temperatures prevail, it can cause the roof to expand and contract. This isn’t helpful to your roof.

Extreme heat can affect your shingles and other elements on your roof. Over time, the damage can increase and cause severe weakness in the roof. Summers in Houston can be brutal to most structures, and roofs are no exception.


This is why it is very important to have your roof inspected, especially if your roof is old. If your roof is closing in on the 20-year mark, then that is a sure sign that you should schedule a roof inspection.

Our Houston roof inspectors are highly trained on what to look for when conducting an inspection. They will find any weaknesses within the roof that could lead to expensive roof damage repairs and provide you with a precise plan of action. Our goal at Amstill Roofing is to protect your home, and we do that by ensuring your roof is in great condition. When your roof is secure, this means your home will protected from leaks, attic invasions by animals, and other rather natural problems.


There is no time like the present, especially during the hot months, to have your roof inspected. The sun will be bringing the heat, so make sure your roof can handle it.
