Hurricane Laura Bringing Strong Winds & Rainfall To East Texas

Hurricane Laura was upgraded to a Category 3 storm early Wednesday morning and remains on track to make landfall along the Texas and Louisiana coast on Wednesday night. Data from the National Hurricane Center shows that it could become a Category 4 storm before slamming into the shore.

Cities along the coastline, such as Galveston and Port Arthur, are likely to see catastrophic damage.

The impact on East Texas will naturally be less severe, but still significant, starting late Wednesday night. “Winds are expected to begin increasing over the southernmost sections of East Texas, spreading northward during the day on Thursday,” stated KLTV Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto. “Maximum wind gusts of 80 mph or more are possible.”

Scirto also predicts 4-6 inches of rain for eastern counties, 2-4 inches of rain for central counties, and 1-2 inches of rain along the western fringe. This begins with scattered showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday afternoon, as the outer bands of Hurricane Laura reach East Texas. The rain and wind increase Wednesday night and continue throughout all of Thursday.

There is also a chance for isolated tornadoes and Flash Flood Watches in some counties.

Clear skies return to East Texas on Friday afternoon, making this weekend a perfect opportunity to assess potential damage from the storm. Strong winds can tear shingles from roofs and heavy rainfall may lead to leaks inside of homes and businesses. Let the highly trained experts at Stonewater Roofing help you locate the damage and get it properly repaired, providing peace of mind for many years to come.

City Limits Apartments Residents Happy With New Roof

The weather in Texas can change in a minute, and it is often unforgiving. Powerful wind gusts. Hailstones that are the size of baseballs. A violent tornado. The remnants of a Gulf Coast hurricane. No matter what Mother Nature is throwing your way, safety is the top priority.

Few people understand this better than the owners of multi-family dwellings.

That is why Stonewater Roofing is proud to have just completed a project at the City Limits Apartments in far north Dallas. The residents of this 406-unit complex can rest easy, knowing that they are well protected from the harshest elements that Texas has to offer.

“One thing Stonewater brings to the table with these multi-families is our knowledge of the industry,” said COO Jacob Law, adding that the company is able to make sure that projects are not only done properly, but also smoothly. “We want to make sure that things go on as smooth as possible on a day-to-day basis.”

“These apartment complexes are going to stand for a while,” Law continued, “and they’re going to need to satisfy their residents.” Those living in the three-story Dallas apartment buildings seem to be quite pleased with the results.

“We had a resident come out today, and she said she’s been living in this particular apartment complex over 10 years. She’s a home nurse. She came out to thank us,” Law recalled. “She’s needed to get in and out of the apartment with her client a few times, and our guys have been there to assist.”

But it’s not just Stonewater Roofing that had the woman and others smiling. “The residents here seem to be pretty happy,” Law said, “that not only we’re out here doing it, but that the owners took the time and investment to make this property better.”

Stonewater Roofing works closely with property owners and insurance companies to make sure that multi-family buildings like this get the proper roof installed by highly-skilled and experienced professionals, all at an affordable cost.
