How Spring Storms Damage Roofs in North Texas

Categories: Roof Repair

Spring Storms Damage Roofs, North TexasAlthough your roof does a good job of protecting your home’s interior when Texas spring storm season hits, your roof itself takes a beating for all its hard work. Spring storms can damage roofs in many different ways. Hail, wind, rain, and lightning can all cause permanent, expensive damage to your roof and home. Unfortunately, many insurance companies do not cover storm damage to roofs, so in order to protect your roof from storm damage, you need to know your risks and make sure your roof is protected before a severe storm hits. Peak Roofing & Construction is a family-owned and operated business, and we understand the importance of protecting your roof, home, and family from spring storms.

How Storms Damage Your Roof

Storms in North Texas have a tendency to be severe. They usually bring damaging weather effects with them, including:

  • hail (up to 1+ inches in diameter)
  • high winds (up to 60+ mph)
  • torrential rains
  • flash floods
  • tornadoes

Hailstones can crack the shingles of your roof, allowing water to seep in and cause serious damage to other parts of your home. Water damage is very costly to repair, especially if it has leaked into deep areas inside of your home like your walls or flooring.

What Roofs are Most Prone to Storm Damage?

Most new roofs do not suffer from storm damage. It is after they have aged, deteriorated, and been worn down that they are more prone to the effects of hail and other natural elements. You can protect your roof from serious damage by having it regularly checked.

How Do I Protect My Home?

In areas that regularly are affected by severe spring storms, like North Texas, it’s wise to protect your home against the effects of hail by installing a hail-resistant roof. A Frisco roofer like those at Peak Roofing & Construction can advise you as to which type of roofing is appropriate for your home. Some of the more popular residential roofing options include standing seam roofs, which can withstand even the most extreme wind gusts.

It’s important to have your roof inspected by a specialist to ensure it is protected and able to withstand heavy spring storms. Emergency roof repair is often much more expensive than preventative care.
