What Our Houston Roofers Look For During A Roof Inspection
In addition to regular roof maintenance, a Houston roof inspection is the best preventative measure you can take to ensure your roof is in good condition. By getting regular inspections at least twice a year, we can make certain that your roof provides you, your family, and the rest of your home with sufficient protection year-round.
What Do We Look For In Your Houston Roof Inspection?
Roof damage exhibits itself through many signs. Some of these signs are barely noticeable while others are impossible to miss, but the less-visible signs are often the beginnings of severe roof damage that needs to be addressed in a timely manner. When you entrust Amstill Roofing with your Friendswood, Katy, Sugar Land, or Kingwood roof inspection, you can rest assured that we will spot any and all signs of roof damage and make the appropriate roof repair or roof replacement recommendations. Here are some of the signs of roof damage we keep an eye out for when inspecting your roof:
The Age Of Your Roof
In Houston, a roof lasts an average of 15 to 20 years before it should be replaced. If you have had your roof for longer than that, chances are that it’s about time for a full Houston roof replacement.
Curling Or Buckling Roof Shingles
Roof shingles that are fully intact and properly installed lay flat against the surface of your roof. Corner shingles, however, are extremely prone to curling up and flying off of the roof, especially during hurricane season. Unfortunately, this creates a chain reaction; once one shingle is loose or missing, the adjacent shingles also become loose, which compromises the roof’s overall integrity.
Buckling shingles are roof shingles that have a dip in them. When shingles have dipped or buckled, they are severely weakened, as shingles should not fold or bend easily. Rather than keeping precipitation away from your roof, buckled shingles actually collect moisture, which creates room for leaks and further damages your roof.
Cracked Roof Shingles And Chimney Flashing
Flashing, otherwise known as chimney flashing, is designed to seal a gap between your roof and your chimney. If this essential roofing component is cracked, it becomes very easy for water to seep into your home, causing severe emergency roof leaks.
