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

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

Residents should always check to see if there are any existing missing shingles or lifted shingles anywhere on the visible part of the roof. If they cannot see the entire roof, it would be wise to have a contractor come out and do a thorough roof assessment with photo documentation, so that you know exactly where your roof may be compromised at before it’s too late. Weather Shield Structures does this for free.

What products do you offer geared toward handling bad weather?

As far as shingles go, we have Class IV impact resistant shingles. They can resist hail impacts up to 3-4 inches, [which is roughly] baseball sized. They also have a 130 mile per hour wind rating.

What are some potential consequences of putting off roofing repairs?

Obviously, if preventative maintenance is not done and you do not get your roof checked out, you are likely to end up with storm damage that will result and water intrusion in your home. You don’t want to be woken up in the middle of the night with water leaking on your forehead from the ceiling in 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 high winds upwards of 60 and 70 miles an hour, and we also have been getting more and more hailstorms as the years go on. In the Kingwood area in February, we had severe tornadoes tear through my neighborhood that left trees laying on top of people's houses, cars and laying across the streets. The best thing that you can do for your family is have your roof checked out by a professional so that you know exactly what is going on with the system that is protecting your biggest asset and your family’s lives—your home.
