Get Your Roof Ready for Storms

Emergency Commercial Roof RepairBecause strong storms are a way of life in Texas, property owners will, many times, brush off the news of inclement weather, panicking when they realize the impact might be greater than expected. No matter which roofing material you have, your roof needs to be ready in the event of a straight-line wind storm, or simply the constant onslaught of the quite violent Texas summer thunderstorms. Even if you aren’t hit with hurricane-force high winds, one thing is sure: your roof will get its share of rain, wind and, most likely, hail before the end of the season.

Before the Storm Comes

Before a storm, you should “batten down the hatches”, so to speak, as wind will be the biggest factor affecting your roof. So, be sure to:

  • When fastening roof decking during a roof replacement, add to its strength by using ring-shank nails.
  • Re-cement loose shingles. In high wind, loose shingles will lift and tear away, leaving the roof deck unprotected against moisture.
  • Use a self-adhering membrane or roofing tape to seal the roof deck. It minimizes the chance that moisture will get into your attic.

Prepare and Repair – or Restore

Have a professional roofing contractor inspect your roof for weak areas that can cause issues during a severe storm. Here are some Indicators that an roof repair or restoration is required, grouped according to your roofing system material:

Shingle – All flashing should be sealed, properly aligned and checked for rust, corrosion or separating. Shingle tabs that are curled or lifted from a poor seal or prior wind damage, or those that have lost their protective granules, need to be replaced or resealed. Your roofing company should also check any vent turbines for proper seal and functionality.

Tile – Fasteners, tiles, flashing, ridges and risers must be in working order. Chipped, delaminated, slipping or sliding tiles must be repaired, restored or replaced. Flying tiles can become dangerous projectiles during high force wind.

Metal – Metal that buckles, fasteners that are the wrong type or are no longer functional, and unsealed or unseated flashing are signs of problem areas on your metal roofing system.

Flat – An emergency roof repair inspection for a flat roof means checking for ponding or pooling water, torn, cracked or broken surfaces, improper or non-functioning fasteners, buckling, poor seals, and overall flashing problems.

Emergency Roof Repair You Can Depend On

It’s best to start getting your home and roof ready now. Here are a few additional,  helpful tips to make sure you, and your roof, are able to make it through any storm.

  • Secure all doors and windows. If there’s debris flying through the air and breaks a window, the pressure inside your home will dramatically increase, and your roof becomes something of a big parachute. To keep this from happening, be sure your doors and windows are tightly secured and locked during the peak of the storm.
  • Take inventory of your property. You might have damage after a storm. You want to be sure you’re ready for your insurance agent when they send an adjuster to your property. Be ready by taking photos and videos that you can provide to an adjuster for confirmation.
  • Secure any loose objects in your yard. Anything that can take flight and damage your home, or any other property, should be secured or moved inside. Patio furniture, for example, should be stored in your garage or shed. Your home isn’t the only thing that needs to be protected during a storm. Protecting your vehicles is also critical. If you don’t have a garage, move them away from big trees that could fall on them.
  • Keep tree branches away from your roof. Branches should be at least six feet away from your house. When winds are high, they’re going to be like large whips across your roof, causing damage. Be extra careful of branches that grow up next to your roof’s edge. This is the area that provides protection from air lift, so its critical that its not damaged.
  • Keep your insurance policy up to date. Be sure you have no coverage gaps. If a tree damages your property,  the first thing you need to do is contact your insurance agent. Next, call a dependable, licensed tree service. They’ll help you remove the tree from your roof and tarp it. Then, your roofing contractor is there to help you repair any damage that was sustained. They will also have tarps and crews ready to help secure your property as soon as possible after the storm
