Recent Storm? You May Need Kingwood Roof Replacement
The Gulf Coast region is known for its volatile weather, so when thunderstorms roll through Houston, they tend to be severe. For that reason, it’s wise to check for signs of Kingwood roof damage following a storm, as your Kingwood roofing may be in need of replacement. Here, we’ll discuss what you should look for following a severe weather system and what you can do to keep your home protected from the next storm that rolls through.
Signs of Kingwood Storm Roof Damage
Recent storms have led many homeowners to check their Kingwood roofing for these signs of storm roof damage so they can make the roof replacement if necessary:
Broken or Missing Shingles
One of the more obvious signs of Kingwood storm roof damage, broken or missing shingles can put your home at risk for serious problems. Strong winds are typically responsible for this type of Kingwood roof damage, especially on older roofs. Should you discover cracked and broken shingles, or patches of shingles that are missing altogether, it’s time to call our Blue Ribbon roofer to make replacement or, if the roof damage is severe, install a Kingwood roof replacement.
Leaks and Water Damage
If there’s an opening on your Kingwood roofing, water will get inside and cause interior damage. Roof leaks can make those openings larger, which will make the damage more extensive. In order to break this vicious cycle, you need our Kingwood roofer to locate the source of the leak and relacement it immediately.
Divots from Hail Damage
Spring storms are often accompanied by hail, which can do some serious damage to your Kingwood roofing. The impact of hailstones against your shingles can leave circular indentations and knock granules loose. While hail roof damage typically requires a full Kingwood roof replacement, if there are only a few shingles affected or the damage was minor, our team can complete the roof replacement for you.
The Older the Roof, The Weaker the Protection!
Most roofs are designed to last around 20 years. But thanks to wild conditions near the coast, roofs in our area tend to wear out much sooner. If it’s been more than 10 years since your last Kingwood roof replacement, your home may be at risk because your roof lacks the stability and strength to protect it from the elements. Issues like brittle shingles that can easily crack and break in stormy conditions and roof buckling are signs that you should probably look into new Kingwood roofing. Because these types of roof damage are a result of the materials themselves deteriorating with time, they signal that the time is right for a Kingwood roof replacement.
