How to Protect Your Residential Roof This Summer

Get a Free Quote Today!

Your residential roof needs attention year-round, but especially during the hot Texas summers. The heat can cause a lot of damage to your roof, and it needs to be monitored in order to catch problems early on. Apart from the heat, summers in Texas also bring storms that can damage your roof. First Out Roofing is here to help you protect your roof with our comprehensive tips and affordable services.

Clean Gutters

Your gutters need to get cleaned out regularly. They can get clogged up with leaves, dirt, and other debris during the fall, winter, and spring months. Summer is the perfect time to hire roofing experts to maintain your gutters. When they are clogged, water can’t get through and it gets pushed back onto your roof. This can cause leaks, which are a lot more expensive to repair.

Storm Preparation

Although most days during Texas summers are dry, when it rains, it storms hard. Your residential roof needs to be prepared for the worst. Make sure the shingles are in top shape. Our team can check for cracks, missing shingles, or big gaps. We will repair these as soon as possible, so your roof can handle any type of rain, hail, or wind.

Trim Trees

It’s important to always have nearby trees trimmed. If branches hang over your residential roof, they can fall off and damage your roof when there is strong wind or if they are dead and diseased. 

Keep an Eye Out For Mold

Mold thrives in humid, moist environments, which sounds like a Texas summer. Mold can weaken your roof’s structure, which can lead to cracks and holes that allow water to seep into your home. If the mold gets into your home too, it can impact your family’s health. It’s known to cause allergic symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, sneezing, coughing, headaches, and fatigue. 

Catch Water Damage Early

Water damage is one of the costliest repairs. Don’t let it get to this point! If you notice that some of the shingles are cracked or missing, get in touch with our crew. Or, if you are unable to tell, we can perform a roof inspection to find out. 

Regular Residential Roof Inspection

We recommend getting at least a yearly residential roof inspection. Our crew at First Out Roofing has many years of experience, and we know exactly what to look out for. We can catch problems early on and prevent them from becoming bigger, costlier projects. 

First Out Roofing Is a Call Away

Let’s fortify your roof this summer with our help! Schedule an annual inspection with our team or sign up for regular maintenance to ensure your residential roof is in top shape. We can also repair and replace your roof, depending on the severity of the issue. But let’s prevent these roofing problems from getting out of hand by regularly maintaining your roof, especially during the summer!
