It's Time to Prepare Your Houston Roof For Upcoming Rain

With the recent rain, we can feel that spring will be gracing Houston soon, especially now that crawfish season has begun. Although this is certainly good news and something to be happy about, our city’s infamous rainfall can wreak havoc on your roof. Before the next round of heavy downpours arrive, there are some things you should do to prepare your roof to be your home’s first defense.

First Things First: Get a Free Roof Inspection to Assess Your Roof’s Current Condition

Before we discuss whether a roof repair or a roof replacement is necessary, we have to understand how your roof is currently holding up. The best way to do this is through a roof inspection, which we offer completely free of charge. In our roof inspections, we look for signs of damage on your shingles. Some signs may include missing shingles, missing granules, dents, cracks, buckling, and more. At times, we may also recommend an interior inspection in your attic to check for other signs of damage, such as water stains or bowing walls.

An inspection is crucial because if we find any of these signs, then chances are very high that rain will further damage your roof and possibly make its way into your house if it hasn’t already, leading to severe leaks and mold. Our roofers need to be absolutely certain that whatever we recommend–be it a full roof replacement or a smaller-scale repair–will be the right decision to protect your home’s structure as well as your loved ones as the amount of rainfall Houston receives increases.

Finance Your Roof Repair or Replacement

In order to further avoid costly bills, it is a good idea to contact your home insurance company to help pay for your Houston roof replacement or roof repair. Typically, insurance companies will help pay for your roofing needs by covering all or a portion of your expense because they also know how important it is to protect your roof from rain damage and storm damage.
