Make sure your roof will be strong enough to last through the winter.
While we recommend that most Texas homeowners have their roofs inspected every year, sometimes homeowners do not put this into practice. Now that winter is here, it’s more crucial than ever to make sure your roof is strong enough to last through the season. Winter is a time of especially severe weather here in Texas, so it’s best to get your inspection done during the fall.
However, if you missed your inspection, there’s no need to panic. Simply make a note to have your roof inspected as soon as the weather allows it. You’ll be glad you did.
Wintertime Roof Damage
Roof damage tends to accumulate in the winter, since that’s an especially tough season for most roofs. Your roof might experience any of the following problems:
- Snow or ice buildup can cause weight issues and strain the roof.
- Heavy rain can puddle, leading to roof leaks.
- Precipitation and heavy wind can damage tiles and shingles.
- Pests may seek to escape colder temperatures by making a home in your roof.
Even a relatively minor issue can cause a leak, which in turn can lead to structural damage or dangerous mold. This is why it’s best to have these issues caught during an inspection before the winter. However, a roof inspection completed as soon as spring comes can also catch these problems earlier, allowing you to make quick repairs and skip expensive damage.
What We Look For
Our roof inspectors are especially thorough, looking not just at the outside of the roof but the chimney, gutters, and the interior of the roof. Our advanced thermal imaging technology allows us to find leaks quickly, and we can come up with a maintenance list that will prevent further issues. We’re also available to help out during the winter in an emergency. Call us today to schedule an inspection or consultation!
