Q&A: Humble-area roofing company offers tips for local homeowners

Matthew Miller opened Weather Shield Structures in Kingwood in February 2021. The company offers a number of residential and commercial roofing services aimed at protecting properties from adverse weather. In addition, the company provides storm damage consultation to help clients assess any weather-related damage.

What are some of the signs that roofing services may be required?

Residents should always check for missing shingles or raised shingles anywhere on the visible portion of the roof. If you can’t see the entire roof, it would be wise to have a contractor come in and do a thorough evaluation of the roof with photographic documentation, so you know exactly where your roof may be compromised before it’s too late. Weather Shield Structures does this for free.

What products do you offer geared towards handling bad weather?

When it comes to shingles, we have Class IV impact resistant shingles. They can withstand hail impacts up to 3-4 inches, [which is roughly] about the size of a baseball. They also have a wind rating of 130 miles per hour.

What are some of the possible consequences of postponing roof repairs?

Obviously, if preventative maintenance is not performed and your roof is not checked, you will likely end up with storm damage and water intrusion into your home. You don’t want to be woken up in the middle of the night with water dripping onto your forehead from the ceiling of your bedroom.

What weather conditions affect roofs in the greater Houston area?

Here in the greater Houston area, several times a year we have severe storms that bring strong winds in excess of 60 and 70 miles per hour, and we’ve also gotten more and more hail as the years go by. In the Kingwood area in February, we had severe tornadoes that hit my neighborhood and left trees over people’s homes, cars, and streets. The best thing you can do for your family is to have your roof checked by a professional so you know exactly what is going on with the system that protects your greatest asset and your family’s life: your home.
