February: Houston's Perfect Time for Roof Inspection
February happens to be one of the best times of the year for Houstonians to receive a free roof inspection from Amstill Roofing. This month is typically full of agreeable weather conditions. In Houston, the average highs range between 60 and 70 degrees and the average lows ranging in the mid- to high-40s.
Compared to most areas in the United States, Houston’s February is like spring. This is why we think this month is a perfect time to consider receiving a roof inspection. There are certain things to look for when considering a roof replacement.
REASONS FOR ROOF REPLACEMENT
- Age of Your Roof - This is a very important aspect of your roof to know. There is a big difference between viewing the roof from the ground and getting on top of the roof and inspecting possible problems. So even if the shingles seem in working order and nothing looks very out of place from the ground, there may be significant wear and tear. If your roof shingles haven’t been changed in about 20 years, then there is a good chance that it needs to be replaced. With constant rain, wind, and Houston’s extreme heat impacting your roof, receiving a roof inspection is a smart idea. (There are more expensive shingles that can last between 30-50 years.)
- Shingle Condition - If your shingles are curling or breaking, then it may be time to have your shingles replaced. Shingles are used as an extra layer of protection and take the brunt of the atmospheric punishment doled out by Mother Nature. Keeping an eye on the condition of your shingles is a good idea. Even if they are relatively new, they can still become damaged, loosened, or removed by harsh weather.
- Weak Spots - Sometimes you are able to see if there are weak spots in your roof from not even conducting a close-up and thorough inspection. If there are dips or “valleys” in your roof, they are sometimes noticeable. If water is collecting there or if the certain area is darkened, there may be substantial roof damage.
