Now that it’s officially summer, we get to welcome in summer fun like BBQs and beach days, but it also means we have to welcome in summer storms, which isn’t fun for your roof. From making shingles go missing to causing gutter damage, storms can do a number on your roof. Here are three ways summer storms can damage your roof, so you can be ready for whatever Mother Nature throws your roof’s way this summer.
Winds Can Whip Up Roof Damage
Even if there’s not heavy rain during a summer storm, the fast wind that comes with them can cause severe damage to your roof. Not only can wind take shingles off of your roof, but they can also take off underlayment and adhesive materials. If you notice missing shingles or other roof damage after a storm, these issues can lead to leaks and possibly damage the inside of your home. To keep your roof and home in a healthy condition, contact the best roofer in your area for a roofing repair.
Hail Can Beat Up Your Shingles
If you’ve ever been outside or in your car during a hail storm, you know how hard those pellets can come down—now imagine your roof getting pelted with those pellets! During a hail storm, the impact of the hail can create indentations on your shingles, which can eventually cause them to crack. When this happens, your roof becomes prone to water leaks and may cause interior water damage. Additionally, hail storms can also cause downspout and gutter damage, making your roof’s water drainage system less effective. In order to prevent this, schedule a free inspection with a roofing repair expert who you are confident will get the work done right the first time, so you can rest easy knowing every element of your roof is well taken care of.
Debris Can Fall Onto Your Roof
Just like the weather of summer, storms are very unpredictable—some are mild, some are intense and some can bring down branches, trees, powerlines, lampposts and other debris. And during some storms, these types of debris can be brought down right on top of your roof.
