Storms are not rare in Texas and can happen any time of the year. The weather can change rapidly so it is important to prepare your roof for the potential wind damage from extreme weather.

Now that Texas has been experiencing extreme weather conditions, we think it would be helpful to remind you of some tips on how to prepare your roof for high winds and heavy storms.

Regular Roof Maintenance is Key 

Regular inspections at least once a year are good, and twice a year, in spring and in fall, would be ideal. A roofing company professional will be able to discover cupping, curling, loose, or missing shingles that can present a risk of wind and water damage.  The faster you notice the damage the sooner you’ll be able to get a roof repair.  It is also crucial to make sure the roof is clean of debris. Debris can become a dangerous projectile in high wind, and when blown around, cause damage to the roof.

Trim or Remove Tricky Trees

Even the most beautiful tree, when too close to your home, can be blown over your roof and cause wind damage. It would be a good idea to hire a contractor to trim any tall trees to keep them away from your home.

Replace Your Roof If It’s Old

If you know that your roof needs to be replaced because of wear and age, take care of it before the storm season comes. Architectural shingles are designed to survive in stormy conditions and should be installed with nails and not staples. A professional roofing company will be happy to replace your roof with shingles that can survive wind damage.
