Weathering the Storm: What You Need to Know About Severe Weather in Texas and Oklahoma

Weathering the Storm

There is an old saying that if you don’t like the weather in Texas (or Oklahoma), just wait a minute. While the saying is catchy, it’s also a warning about the volatility of weather in the area. Keeping your family safe during severe storms includes protecting your home and its roof from the effects of conditions such as high winds, hail and heavy rains.

With more than 25 years experience in roofing in Texas and Oklahoma, our team of professionals at Premiere Roofing bring you this guide to spotting severe weather and how to deal with any weather-related roof damage.

What Causes Severe Storms in Texas and Oklahoma?

When it comes to thunderstorms, Texas and Oklahoma are hotspots, literally. As warm air rises from the Gulf of Mexico, it collides head on with cold fronts sweeping west to east across the country. And when that cold air and the warm Gulf air collide, the instability creates severe weather and thunderstorms.

Two of the components of these severe storms which can cause serious roof damage are straight line winds or downbursts and hail. These dangerous wind conditions can develop quickly and have the potential to not only blow off shingles but to actually “peel back” some roofs.

Similarly, hail gives little to no warning before it begins to fall. And depending on the size of the hail, it can cause anything from damaged shingles to actual holes and craters in roofs.

Protecting and Repairing Your Roof from Storm Damage
