About The Austin Texas Area Weather

Austin Texas Weather

The weather in Austin can be absolutely beautiful and ideal for many activities, however, it can change quickly and can be very difficult to predict. The reason why the weather in central Texas is so unpredictable is because there are many different climate variations all throughout Texas.

Because of these different climates all being packed into a small area, the weather starts to do some crazy things. The climate in Austin is more subtropical and humid yet somewhat dessert-like.

This mixture of climates causes some serious weather such as severe thunderstorms, hail storms, tornadoes, and some hurricane weather. All of these can absolutely wreak havoc on your roof. But that is why Presidio Roofing is here to help.

Hurricane Level Winds

The winds in Austin can get fairly strong. Strong winds up to 70, 90, or even 100 miles per hour can start damaging your roof.. Most people think about shingles being torn from their roof when dealing with high winds.

Missing, cracked, or broken shingles can cause water to leak in and will begin to cause damage to the underlying structure. However, this is not the only problem your roof can suffer from when it comes to high winds. Large tree branches are easily thrown about in a high wind storm.

These large branches can cause some serious damage to your roof, including puncturing straight through the shingles. So keep a lookout for missing shingles, cracked or broken shingles, or debris on your roof. Any of these can cause further water damage.

Just remember that roof damage from high-winds can sometimes be difficult to see, especially from the ground. The winds can begin to lift the shingles and loosen nails or flashing. Any of these things would not be noticeable to an untrained eye. That’s why you should have regular maintenance checks and inspections done on your roof to ensure that it is functioning properly.

Hurricanes

Hurricanes are a very real threat to your home in Austin Texas. It’s true that hurricanes stick more to the coast and don’t actually make there way to Austin. However, they still have the ability to do serious damage, even this far out from the coast.

Hurricanes don’t just cause serious damage where they are. A hurricane has the ability to cause severe weather that ripples out from the center of the storm. This ripple effect creates severe thunderstorm weather is usually accompanied by hurricane level winds.

This type of weather, even though it is not as severe as being in an actual hurricane, still has the ability to drastically affect your home or business. Serious storms like this can rip your shingles off of your roof or even rip branches and small trees right out of the ground.

This can mean some serious damage to the Austin area, including cars, homes, and businesses. Hurricanes have the ability to cause terrible damage, even to the surrounding communities.

Dramatic Changes in Temperature

Here in Austin Texas, dramatic temperature fluctuations is a fairly common part of life. One moment the temperature will be in the 80’s and an hour or two later you are looking at 30 degree weather. Why does this type of temperature change happen here?

Texas is a unique state in many ways, one of which is the climate. There are so many different climate variations all within a very short distance of each other. This overabundance of climate variations causes the weather to behave very strangely.

That is why the temperature can change so much so quickly. This type of temperature change is really bad for your roof. The components of your roof such as wood and metal act differently depending on the temperature.

Thermal shock is what we call the quick heating or cooling of these materials. It is caused when they expand and contract rapidly. This rapid change causes wood to bend and crack which will seriously damage your roof and the underlying structure.

Thermal shock can also cause your flashing to separate, as well as torn seams, and cracked joints. Since Austin sees a lot of dramatic temperature changes, making sure to have your roof inspected regularly is always a good idea. The last thing you need to worry about it water damage throughout your roofing system, attic, walls, or ceilings in your home or business.

Tornadoes

Most people probably don’t know this but Texas is the number one state when it comes to tornadoes. Yes it’s true. With around a whopping 130 on average each year, Texas ranks #1 when it comes to tornadoes touching down.

Fortunately, since Austin is closer to Central Texas there isn’t a large amount of tornadoes that occur here. Central Texas is where Tornado Alley comes to an end which leaves us with some tornadoes, however, it’s not nearly as active of an area as up north.

Tornadoes are nasty natural disasters. They unapologetically tear through communities destroying whatever crosses their path. Ripping entire roofs off of homes, throwing trees into buildings, and flipping cars through the air. The winds of a tornado are strong enough to rip the shingles from your roof and siding off of your house, even when you’re not directly in the way of the tornado.

Hail Storms

Hail is one of the most damaging types of weather we see here in Central Texas. As a matter of fact, they have done research on insurance claims and hail is the number one most claimed damage to homes, businesses, and vehicles in the state of Texas. The highest recorded cost of damages in the state of Texas was not a hurricane or tornado. It was a hail storm.

Hail is caused during a thunderstorm when an updraft of air carries the rain high above freezing levels. As the rain is carried upward and begins to freeze more and more water begins to stick to and freeze creating large pieces of ice called hailstones. When the hailstone becomes too heavy for the updraft to carry it falls to the ground.

The stronger the updraft the longer the hailstone stays in the air and the larger the hail is. That is why sometimes hail is just the size of a pebble or a small marble but sometimes it’s the size of a softball.

Hail is extremely dangerous, not just for you but for your home as well. They leave gashes in your roofing shingles and can tear your gutters apart. In really serious cases, they can dent metal roofs and even crack and break clay shingles.

If your home or business has recently experienced severe hail damage make sure to have an inspection done. After struggling with all of the damages caused by the hail the last thing you want to deal with is water damage from leaks in your roof.

Heavy Rainfall

Overall water damage is the worst kind of damage your home can suffer from. Severe thunderstorms might not seem like a rather destructful thing especially when Austin Texas needs also deals with tornadoes, hurricanes, and hailstorms. However, water tends to be more of the silent killer.

Heavy rainfall has the ability to overwhelm your roof with water. If leaks are present within your roofing system what was a small amount of dripping water can quickly turn into a steady stream of water. This stream of water will begin to fill up and puddle in areas that aren’t noticeable.

Once the water gets in, it’s really only a waiting game until it starts to grow mold and mildew. If the leak isn’t found quickly, the mold can grow rapidly. Mold and mildew have the ability to infest pretty much anywhere in your home. The walls, ceilings, floors, and it can grow on almost any type of material as well.

Mold is a serious problem especially with the humid weather we get here in Austin. This climate is the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. If anyone in your home suffers from asthma mold can cause serious side effects such as struggled breathing and full on asthma attacks.

The worst part is that mold could be growing in your attic and in your walls and you can’t even see it. Tearing things down and completely gutting the areas of your home that have become infested is the only way to get rid of a serious mold infestation. That is why checking for leaks in your roof regularly is so important.

Water damage can also happen when water leaks into electrical wiring within the walls. If the leak is truly big enough (especially during periods of heavy rain) water could begin to pool significantly in your ceiling and cause the ceiling to bow or even cave in.

Dry wall, which is what most ceilings and walls are made of, is not made to withstand water. Drywall can quickly become weak and unstable when it is exposed to large amounts of water.

Extreme Heat Damage

Extreme heat and incredibly hot weather is definitely an issue we deal with here in Austin. The summers here get unbearably hot. This level of heat has the ability to cause the roof to fall apart overtime. The constant pounding of the heat on your roof causes a gradual kind of damage to the shingles.

Think about erosion. Water over millions of years wore down rock until it became what is the Grand Canyon today. However, water isn’t the only thing that has the ability to cause erosion. The extreme heat can cause the materials to begin to wear away.

When your shingles become so incredibly hot they begin to dry out, crack, and break. This breakage is rather common here in Austin which is why shingles don’t last as long as other roofing materials. Making sure to have worn down shingles replaced regularly is important to keep your roof in tip top shape.

Ventilation is another key aspect to keeping your Austin roof in working order. When your attic is poorly ventilated the heat becomes trapped and starts to rise. Think of it like your car. When you leave your car with the windows rolled up in the hot sun, the moment you get in your car, you feel like your in an oven. The heat becomes trapped and just continues to climb in temperature.

This is what happens in a poorly ventilated attic. The heat from inside the attic will begin to raise the temperature of the roof. If Austin is dealing with a particularly hot summer you should get your shingles checked to make sure they aren’t beginning to show signs of damage, especially if your roof is not in a shaded area.
