Hurricane season starts in June and ends on the last day of November. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasts 14 to 21 storms for 2022, 6 to 10 of which may become hurricanes with wind speeds of 74 mph or higher. In this article, our Houston roof experts will discuss the signs of common Katy roof damage that occurs during hurricane season that you should look out for.
During this season, homeowners should be vigilant in monitoring the condition of their roofing system. Katy roof repairs should be scheduled immediately should you see the following signs below to prevent further damage.
With hurricane-force winds, you should watch out primarily for Katy wind roof damage. Homeowners should look out for curling or buckling and peeling shingles. Peeling shingles is a clear sign that winds have penetrated the roof layers and has started to lift the shingles. Curling or buckling of shingles occur due to extreme heart, natural wear and tear, and excessive moisture absorption. This can also be worsened by strong winds. You should also watch out for Katy roof damage to your chimney and its flashing. Tell-tale signs are a crooked or tilted chimney and water seepage from a broken chimney flashing.
Roof leaks are an obvious sign that your roofing system has sustained Katy roof damage and is due for an immediate Katy roof repair.
Strong winds can also bring debris that can end up on your roof. Large objects such as tree branches can damage the shingles and leave it vulnerable to further damage from wind and moisture. After a storm, your roof should be cleared of debris immediately and assessed for possible Katy roof damage it has sustained.
After a storm hits, homeowners should visually assess their roofing system and look for signs of damage. Of course, always practice safety first. If you do not have the tool or means to conduct a thorough assessment please leave it to your trusted Houston roof experts.
If you have noticed any of the damage mentioned above then your roofing system may be due for a Katy roof replacement. A well-maintained roof not only ensures that you and your loved ones are protected from the worst of the hurricane season but it also keeps the maintenance costs to a minimum.
