Roofing Houston – 2 Proven Tips Prevent Serious Worry…

Roofing Houston – How Not to Get ‘Bamboozled’ by Your Roof…

Roofing Houston – Almost everyone knows that a roof is the single most important structure on your home. It literally protects you from the elements, and keeps you and your family safe.  In addition without proper routine maintenance you may be looking at a huge roofing bill coming up soon. Repairs to your roof will always be expensive but it’s good to bear in mind that 90% of these problems can be side stepped if you simply get a check up once a year. Most folks don’t do this and end up paying more than they have to.

With weather being unpredictable, and insurance companies sometimes finding a way out of helping you cover all your costs (after years of paying premiums), it’s smart to make sure your roof is at least adhering to the rules insofar as your policy is concerned. Of course many already know your homeowners insurance provider definitely won’t remind you.

Roofing Houston – 2 Priceless Lookouts to Help You…

Check After Stormy Weather – Having an annual inspection is a good idea, but if you’ve had a recent storm or other type of bad weather it’s good to know if it has done any preliminary damage. Preliminary damage is damage done that has the potential to be destructive. This can include loose flashing, loose or missing shingles, and soffit and fascia damage as well.

Check Your Policy – Sometimes certain policies in some areas include statements that can give your insurance provider an opportunity to turn the other way when you file a claim if certain criteria exists at the time of inspection etc. Normally your roofing company handles this, but it’s always good to hire someone to read through your policy to make double sure you’re covered in the event there is massive damage to your home. Also, some folks don’t know their deductible until it’s too late! Checking these things will put you in a much better position should something happen to your roof during a hail storm etc.

Roofing Houston – Conclusion

Maintaining a roof can be a challenge especially if you live in an area that is hit by bad weather often. 3 tab shingles are the most common type of roofing shingle although there are other higher quality 3 tab’s that you can upgrade to so you can maximize your protection during the winter and summer months when most storms tend to happen.

The Good News… 

You may qualify for a roof upgrade depending on the work that needs done. When roofers are doing a bunch of business in a given area, they tend to compete on price with the other companies that are canvassing the neighborhood. This can mean big savings for you, and maybe even a super quality upgrade! A new roof can add ‘curb appeal’ to your home if your selling it, and can even add $ to your asking price.

Even if you are not planning on selling any time soon, having a high quality roof placed on your home can do a ton for your home in the way of saving you time (since it’s new etc), and getting the most roof for your dollar.

Roof Repair Houston – 3 Things to Know…

Roof Repair Houston – Is Your Roof Too Old?

If you typed in ‘Roof Repair Houston‘, we are glad to see you! Normally when you look up at your roof (with binoculars preferably), you can get some idea of the age of your roof. Regular 3-tab shingles have an average useful life span of 15 years.  If it’s been a while since the last time your roof was replaced, it might be time to take a good look up there. Although there are reasons NOT to look, there are 10 times as many reason TO take a gander.

Here are 3 Proven Reasons:

Invisible Leaks. You can have unseen leaks silently destroying your roof from the inside out. If you live in dry and hot climates it has the effect of creating cracks in the shingles (which are largely invisible to the eye), and this can cost up to 10 times the cost of a new roof. It’s important to have someone come out and check your roof because severe water damage can happen to anyone, at anytime.

Insurance Policies. Some insurance policies call for a regular inspection to prevent water damage. With some insurance companies, if the find out you haven’t done this, they might give you a hard time when it comes time to file a real life, legitimate claim. As if there wasn’t enough stress with getting a new roof already!

Granules in Your Gutter – Downspout Shoe. It’s always a good idea to take a look in your gutters to see if the granules of the shingles are coming loose. When you see these granules (like sand) in your gutter or downspout, this is a clear indicator that at the very least you should have an inspection done. The granules help to reflect the sunlight away from the roof. When they come off, your roof get roasted by the sun and will inevitably develop serious issues.
