Storm Damaged Roof Repair In Houston
Storm Damage Insurance Claims Require Expert Help
Sometimes roof damage after a storm is obvious.
Other times it’s not – it can often require a trained eye to see it.
The best way to know if your roof suffered storm damage is to reach out to a proven Houston roofing company to get a thorough assessment. That’s the only way you’ll know if you are getting a complete appraisal of the damage.
This becomes especially important when filing a roof insurance claim for storm damage. Your insurance company is more likely to deny your claim if you don’t have an expert advocate on your side. (For more on this, please visit our Roof Insurance Claims page).

Common Storm Damage That Requires Roof Repairs
Roof Storm Damage From Hail
Storm damage caused by hail is a serious threat to your roof. Hail damage causes small indentations and holes in your roof’s shingles. Once a roof has been damaged by hail, it is not repairable, and there is no such thing as “a little hail damage.”
Roof Storm Damage From Wind
Assessing storm damage caused by wind is not always cut and dry. Residential asphalt shingles are designed to self-seal by way of a tar strip adhering to a match point on each shingle. During a windstorm this tar strip can unseal, and the shingle can lift. A lifted shingle alone is not considered damaged.
However, if wind-blown debris attaches to the tar strip during the storm and prevents the shingle from re-sealing, then the shingle is damaged beyond repair. The best way to tell the difference is to get a free roof inspection.
Roof Storm Damage From Flying Debris
Flying debris is typically a tree branch or similar object which falls, impacts your roof, and causes damage. Assuming your roof is fine after a storm simply because it APPEARS to be intact is a mistake. Most storm damage is not visible from the ground or to the untrained eye. Get a roof assessment to be sure!
Houston Roofing & Construction will provide a free roof inspection to determine if your roof is still working properly and fully protecting your home.
