What to Expect When Getting a Houston Roof Replacement by Amstill Roofing

While most Houston roofs can last about 10-20 years, on average, its lifespan will ultimately depend on exposure to hectic weather, such as hail damage, rain damage, and past hurricane damage. Through our roof inspections, we often find that roof repairs aren’t enough and, instead, roof replacement is necessary. Here is what you can expect when you rely on Amstill Roofing to replace your Houston roof.

Step 1: Free Roof Inspection

Before anything else, we highly recommend you get a roof inspection. When we arrive for your free roof inspection, we will carefully look at your roof, gutters, downspouts, siding, and possibly your attic. This way we can look for all the potential places for damage and ensure we don’t miss anything. If we determine that a roof replacement is necessary, it will be time to contact your homeowner’s insurance provider to file a claim. Chances are you can file a claim relating to the Houston weather, such as hail damage, wind damage, or rain damage.

Step 2: Meet With an Insurance Adjuster

Once you file your claim with your insurance provider, they will send out an adjuster to conduct their own inspection. Because our inspections are free, we recommend you schedule a date that allows our inspector, in addition to the adjuster, to have a look. Since we already completed a free inspection before you contacted them, we will make sure the adjuster doesn’t miss any of the damage. This way, you can get the most out of your homeowner’s insurance.

Step 3: Replacing Your Houston Roof

Next it’s time for us to do what we do best: replace your old roofing. We start by protecting your windows and landscaping with plywood and tarp, since a roof replacement can be quite messy.

Tear Down the Current Roofing

We will remove your current roofing down to its decking so that we can essentially start from scratch. Afterward, we will add water-proofing to the deck and then lay 30 pound felt over it. This adds even more protection and helps in installing your shingles.

Replacing Your Shingles

The next step is to install brand new shingles according to manufacturer guidelines. We’ll also install enhanced high profile shingles on top of any ridges. This complements the rest of the roofing and adds further protection.

Bringing Vents and Chimney up to Code

We’ll also check on your vents and chimney. If necessary, we’ll replace and repaint them so they are up to code, as roofing standards are known to change over the years.
