While you can prepare your home and roofing against a passing storm, the damage they have sustained can still catch you off guard. This is especially true during wind storms, which take the worst sort of debris and bring them crashing onto your roof. The impact damage they create is no joke – typically resulting in massive roof leaks when left unattended. Here are some of the worst offenders.
1. Tree Branches
When the wind storm is strong enough, it can tear off large tree branches or even uproot any nearby trees when they’re old or improperly supported. They can damage your roof upon impact, puncturing any protective roof membranes and knocking off shingles. To prevent this, make sure to cut down any trees that are too close to your roofing and siding.
2. Building Components
Some of the first things that get torn off during high winds or tornadoes are actual pieces of the homes around you. Antennas, shutters, roof vents, posts, gutters and bits of masonry can make their way toward your roof, smashing against it at high speeds. You should expect dents and patches of missing shingles on your roof when this happens. Promptly call your trusted local roofing company, Quality Assurance Roofing, after this major weather event. Our trained and experienced team will perform a comprehensive roof damage assessment and diagnose what needs to be done to restore it to rights.
You’ll need to be extra vigilant when a hailstorm has just passed your area. Here’s why: hail damage is often hidden, and hailstones can knock off the protective granules on your shingles upon impact. When overlooked, the small dents and cracks left by a hailstorm on your roof can worsen and lead to water infiltration. To extend the life of your roof and protect your home from water damage, make sure to have your roof inspected and repaired by a professional after a hailstorm.
