storm damaged roofStorm damage repair can become something you need quickly and without notice. Inclement weather can move in on your home and an instant damage or destroy the entire roofing system. Getting these issues fixed quickly is critical to protecting the interior of your home. So we respond to your call with urgency every time.

Immediately After the Storm
While it may be tempting to climb up on your roof, you should always allow a professional to handle this for you. Depending on the severity of the damage, there could be dangerous weak spots that could send you plunging through. We have the training and the equipment to avoid these dangers and inspect your roof carefully.

A professional inspection, even if you don’t suspect storm damage repair is needed, is important to do after any major weather occurrence. Many times weak spots won’t actually leak water until the next rain, which can then make it difficult to prove to your insurance company when the damage occurred. We can come to your home within hours or days of the storm and inspect all of the materials.

Types of Damages
Hail, heavy rain and wind are the most common culprits that cause problems for homeowners. Each of these can cause different problems that need storm damage repair.

Hail – On most surfaces, hail will only leave cosmetic damage like dents. It can cause minor loss of the protective mineral granules found on asphalt shingles, but it typically isn’t a serious issue. But on older or more fragile surfaces, hail can do a number. A tile roof is durable, but it can suffer the effects of heavy impact. Large hail can crack individual tiles and shingles. While this would probably just require minor roof repair, it can lead to problematic leaks.

Wind – In Texas, high winds are common and so is the damage they cause. While wind can affect nearly any type of roof no matter how well it was installed, a poorly installed shingle roof is most often in need of storm damage repair. Because of the way shingles are layered, they are more vulnerable to a peeling effect. The wind will catch underneath a few shingles and push them up, peeling all the layers above them off of the surface. This causes the roofing nails to tear out and leave your home vulnerable to leaks.

Tornados – When a tornado comes anywhere near your home, the results can be devastating. Storm damage repair may not be enough, so we are also available for full roof replacement. If you have experienced the effects of a tornado, please wait until you are safe, and then call us for emergency roof repair.
