In El Paso windstorms and they occasional hail storm can cause major damage. If you are questioning whether you need a new installation or not we have a few signs on what to look for.

The most obvious sign of course is missing roof tiles. After a windstorm you may find your roof tiles all over your yard. The tiles may also be lifting up and flapping in rows on your roof. Asphalt tiles that have come loose is never a good sign. Another less obvious indication is roofing granules showing up around the perimeter of your home. They may also end up in your gutters and along your driveway.
