Roof Damage from Major Storm Events
Areas in Texas near the Gulf of Mexico are very susceptible to Hurricanes. While the Dallas & Austin metro areas see less risk, there can be instances which hurricanes form strong tropical storms that hit these areas. That being said, the main metro in Texas that’s at risk of getting hit by Hurricane is Houston, TX. Hurricanes cause serious wind and rain damage, and homeowners in Houston need to have their roofs inspected before hurricane season every year (June 2nd and November 5th).
Tornados exclusively cause major wind damage to homes & roofs. Depending on the severity of a tornado, the best plan is to evacuate. However, if you’re home is near the tornados’ path, you can see some major wind damage to your roof. While residents in the Gulf have a bit longer to get their roofs inspected for hurricane season, Tornado season begins in March. It’s highly recommended to have your roof professionally inspected prior to the tornado season.
General Storm Damage on Roofs
Wind & Rain
Wind damage can happen in the middle of almost any type of storm. Powerful wind can loosen shingles and create openings for leaking. When wind damage is compounded with rain, leaks are very common. Texas storms can often be very unpredictable in terms of when and where they will strike – so don’t beat yourself up too much if your home suffers from a leak after a storm. Give a local company, like M&M Roofing, Siding & Windows a call to help with storm roofing repairs.
Shingles are designed to block the UV of the sun and prevent damage from asphalt underlayment. Like everything, weather eventually deteriorates surfaces, and at some point ganules for shingles decay and fall. This leaves a roof extremely vulnerable to hail. If you haven’t had your shingles inspected in a while and your area in Texas is approaching hail season – get your roof inspected by a professional storm damage roofing contractor.
