Did You Sustain Kingwood Roof Damage?
Since the beginning of 2022, Kingwood has experienced numerous storms that brought rain, wind damage, hail damage, and even some ice damage. Now, don’t think that Kingwood’s winter weather isn't a cause for worry. In Greater Houston, our roofs are still likely to be damaged by the cold weather. Keep reading to learn how to tell if your home has sustained storm roof damage.
Signs Your Home Has Kingwood Roof Damage
There are multiple signs that indicate your roof has been damaged by past storms. The most common signs our Houston roofing company sees include:
Curled Roof Shingles
Roof shingle curling is synonymous with severe wind damage. Kingwood experiences wind during most of the hurricane season and even during the spring and winter. If wind speeds pick up (they usually do), this can cause already-damaged roof shingles to start lifting–especially if these shingles are on the corners of your roofing. This spells disaster. Why? Well, corner shingles are the most prone to lifting from gusty winds. If they aren’t secured, they’ll soon tear off and drag nearby shingles with them! The last thing you want is to be missing shingles that are supposed to keep your family safe.
Indentations Due to Kingwood Hail Damage
Hail forms when cold upward winds combine with raindrops. As the rain gets stirred in the winds, it grows upon itself into what we know as hailstones. Did you know that it only takes hail the size of a quarter to cause Kingwood roof damage? This is because hailstones fall onto your roof with great force, causing divots and indents on your roofing–even chipping your roof shingle granules. Roof shingle granules are your roof’s outermost layer of protection, so once these are chipped, your roof shingles become more vulnerable and might require Kingwood roof repairs or a Kingwood roof replacement if your roof is exhibiting long-term damage.
Kingwood Roof Leak
A Kingwood roof leak can occur at any time of the year because it often exists in your home for extended periods of time before you finally spot it. This is why a few complete Kingwood roof inspections throughout the year are helpful.
