Georgetown, Texas is a city on the grow! In May of 2019, it was rated as the 7th fastest growing city in the United States. It’s home to the oldest university in Texas -- Southwestern University -- which was formed from four existing colleges all the way in 1875.
It might just be your home, too!
As a suburb of Austin, Georgetown is subject to all the same wild weather – including a busy annual hail season and sweltering summer temperatures. An average shingle roof, which might last for 30 years in some locations, is more likely to fail around the 20-year mark here in Georgetown.
That means you should pick a Georgetown roofer you can trust – before you need one!
Georgetown Roofing Inspections, Repairs, and Replacements Made Easy
It’s no mistake that Georgetown is the site of “Sun City” – it gets hot!
Unfortunately, this means your shingle roofs can get worn down before their time. if your attic doesn’t have sufficient ventilation, trapped heat can create an oven-like effect and bake shingles from below.
These shingles don’t change in appearance, but they are actually weak and soft. There’s no telltale sign like cracking, bruising, or discoloration that you’d be able to see. Instead, they simply fail when it rains.
Unfortunately, these leaks spread fast and will often devastate a roof after just a little bit of sustained rain. Often, there’s no other choice than to completely replace the roof. The best way to make sure this won’t happen to you is to schedule an annual roof inspection with your friendly Georgetown roofer.
A shingle roof should be inspected once a year, ideally before storm season. This gives you time to get any repairs or updates done before rough weather rolls your way.
