According to NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association), June 1 is the start of Hurricane Season. So according to the most trusted weather association, Hurricane Season 2019 starts today.
There are various ways to prepare for the worst, and over the recent years, Houston has endured some of the worst with Ike and Harvey. Most of the hurricane and tropical storms that will hit the Gulf Coast won’t be at the height of those two hurricane’s destructive powers, but that doesn’t mean those storms can’t do a good amount of damage. High winds and flying debris can cause high costs in storm damage, so if your roof isn’t storm ready, then there is no better time than now to get your roof prepared.
New Roof or Roof Repairs?
If you aren’t sure if you need a new roof or simply roof repairs, then the first step you should take is getting a free roof inspection from Houston’s EZ Roof. Our roofing specialists will conduct a thorough inspection of your roof to see if your shingles, decking, and entire structure is healthy enough to withstand further storms. There may simply be areas that need work, instead of needing a completely new roof.
Once our roof inspection is completed, our roofer will go over the results with you to show you where your roof’s pain points are.
Getting this inspection done during the early summer months is most beneficial because September is the month when the amount of hurricanes and tropical storms hit their peak.
Protect Your Roof from Storm Damage
Houston is only 50 miles from the coast of Galveston, which means powerful storms don’t have too far to go to reach our city. Making sure your roof can hold up against the remnants of a tropical storm or hurricane is a good idea that can save you a lot of worry and money in the short- and long-run.
Worried about the state of your roof? Call EZ Roof Houston today and have us come out to do a free roof inspection.
