When most Houston residents think of hurricanes are mind reverts back to the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey that impacted over 3 million people and over 130,000 homes overnight and white it’s been a few years there are still lingering effects. While we have not been through anything so traumatic storm wise and hope to never again the majority of hurricanes, we will see in the future are likely to carry heavy winds and harsh rain. These tropical storms if severe enough can lead to significant roof damages, . The most common hurricane damages happen to your roof because its exposed to high winds and rains during the hurricane. Some of the damages are obvious while some storm damage may go undetected for an extended length of time.
Some of the damages to roof from hurricanes include:
Holes or Cracked Shingles and Tiles: When your roof has holes or cracks, they can weaken your roofing system causing rainwater to leak into the homes and during a hurricane smaller holes can expand quickly leading to premature roof failure.
Lost Shingles and Tiles: When Houston is hit with a hurricane the wind speeds can be in excess of 150 mile per hour wind with the highest wind speeds reported in Galveston that is strong enough not only to split roof shingles and tiles but entire sections of the roof. One of the issues it shingles is that when the wind blows they can flap and then afterwards lay back down hiding their damages so without a roper inspection things may appear normal to the untrained eye this is why after any storm has made its way through the greater Houston area we recommend having a trained expert be called to assess your roof.
Sagging Roofs: The most dangerous roof damage from a hurricane or tropical storm is a roof that is sagging. When you notice there are sagging or sinking areas of the roof you should be concerned. Some sagging doesn’t mean your family is in imminent danger however you should act soon and not delay the necessary repairs in over to save the structure if left unattended a sagging roof becomes a ticking time bomb that can collapse on your family at any given moment without warning. With hurricanes comes massive rain and any part f your roof that’s been damaged allows water an entry door into the home weaking and potentially destroying the underlying surface.

The Best Roof for Hurricane and Severe Storms
While no roofing material is entirely resistant to 130 miles hour winds and torrential rain some roofing material come out of Hurricanes better than others.
Metal Roofs: This type of roof is best for areas where hurricanes can make a direct impact such as Galveston and 30 miles inland. Most metal can handle wind speeds of up to 140 miles per hour or a category 4 hurricane offering the best defense of all roofing materials in hurricane prone areas. Metal roofs are also able to handle hail storms and debris that falls onto the roof during such severe weather because their panels overlap and attach to the structure of the home so that wind can not lift it up the way wind can with tiles or shingles.
Impact Resistant Roof Shingles: These roofing shingles more commonly known in our industry as “IR” shingles are great for Houston severe weather including hurricane because they have a class 4- impact resistant that can safeguard your home. For these asphalt shingles to qualify to receive this special rating they are tested by having a steel drop dropped numerous times at a height of 20 feet, while this steel ball will crack a concrete paver it will not damage an impact resistant roof shingle. Because of the way these shingles are engineered. On the back of an asphalt shingle is a polymer-based mesh that holds the shingle together so tit will not crack or break when high winds, hail, or hurricane cause debris to hit the roofs surface. The second way a IR shingle is designed is with a styrene-butadiene-styrene which is like a rubber surface that makes the shingle more flexible and capable of recovering when hit with hail, tree limbs or other debris.
