It’s officially spring, which means warmer weather but also a lot more rain and even wind. It’s no secret that spring rainstorms are intense and can cause severe roof damage, but how do you know whether a Houston roof replacement is necessary or if you can get away with just a few roof repairs? Here’s what your trustworthy roofing contractors at 314 Roofing recommend.
When to Get Houston Roof Repairs
Roof repairs are much smaller scale than getting a completely new roof system. If your roof hasn’t received an inspection in the last 6 months, you might find that it has undergone some level of damage, whether it be rain damage (roof leaks), hail damage (dented roof shingles), or even wind damage–which usually presents itself as curled/lifted roof shingles and/or missing roof shingles.
In the aforementioned cases, getting Houston roof repairs will be appropriate if the damage is rather mild. How can you tell if your roof damage is mild, though? The best way to find out is by getting a roof inspection by our professional roofers. When we conduct a roof inspection, we’ll closely examine your structure to spot any signs of damage and then we’ll assess how durable it currently is given the damage we find. If your roof is in fairly good condition and can still withstand the typical damage we encounter in the spring with some TLC, then we’ll likely recommend some solid roof repairs to reinforce your system and that you also get professional Houston roof maintenance as the seasons change.
When to Get Houston Roof Replacement
Now that you know roof repairs are recommended as a way to reinforce your current roof system after it has sustained some minor damage, it’s time to discuss roof replacements. First off, know that a roof will, inevitably, need to be replaced an average of every 10-15 years. This depends on how the weather affects your system and how diligent you are with upkeep.
If you haven’t had any roof work done in years, then you could need a brand new roofing system. We’ll be glad to conduct a roof inspection so we can accurately determine if a Houston roof replacement is, in fact, necessary for the safety of your family.
