No one can stop severe weather and the serious damage it can bring to the exterior of a home. Hail, wind, debris impact and water damage are only a few events that can destroy roofs. So, what can you do to prevent or lessen the damage? Brownstone Roofing, one of the area’s most trusted roofing specialists, discusses how to address them.
High winds can get under a small section of a shingle, causing it to curl up or rip it off completely. They can also “lift” the shingles upwards and loosen the nails that hold them down. Then, the sealant between each layer can break, leading to leaks. For areas that are routinely ravaged by severe weather, it’s recommended that you undergo seasonal roof inspections as a preventive measure.
Hail the size of golf balls, or even larger, will wreak havoc on your home and other belongings. If your roof looks shredded, call your insurance agent to start your claim. However, don’t wait for your insurance claim settlement. Schedule an inspection with your storm damage repair specialists as soon as you can. It is better to act quickly than to let your home sustain more damage due to a leaky roof.
Water and Impact Damage
Stop roofing leaks before they ruin your home and safety. The initial dangers of a roof leak are damage to the attic area and items stored there. The leaking water also will damage paint and plaster on ceilings and nearby walls. Expect damage also on ceiling-mounted lights and fans.
Additionally, high winds can blow debris around and cause trees and limbs to fall on your roof. The impact can puncture the roof or destroy your shingles. Impact can often be more damaging to your roof than the wind itself. Consult your roofing experts for a repair or full replacement.
