Protecting Your Roof From Hail

Categories: Roof Repair

Protecting Roof From Severe Hail, HoustonWith summer heat comes intense Texas thunderstorms. With these thunderstorms you can get strong winds, rain, and hail that can wreak havoc on your roof. You need to have a plan in order to protect your home. Here are a few simple steps you can take to ensure your roof survives the intense summer weather in Houston.

Keep It Maintained

A well-maintained roof is better able to withstand tough punishment from Mother Nature. Make sure to have your roof regularly inspected so you can catch small problems before they become big issues. The biggest areas often damaged by high wind and hail are shingles and the sheathing underneath. The sheeting is crucial to preventing leaks, as it acts as a moisture barrier. Go into your attic and check your trusses and rafters as well to check that it is all intact.

The Right Roof

If you are looking at installing a new roof, or replacing an old one, you need to look for shingles that can withstand a hailstorm. Impact-resistant asphalt shingles are very good at resisting hail damage. Ask your roofing professional for any other roofing types that may be better suited for your particular roof and climate.

The Right Professional

If you have suffered a severe storm and storm damage, it is crucial that you choose a licensed professional. Summer is prime time for roofing contractor fraud, so be on the look out and only trust a company with a solid reputation in Houston. A licensed roofer will have the knowledge to recommend and install a roof that will be able to endure typical Texas weather for decades to come.
