When a storm hits, your roofing system is the first line of defense for your home or business. Let’s make sure that your roof is built to weather the storm!
Chances are, regardless of where you reside in Texas, you’ve experienced your fair share of severe weather throughout the years. Storms, such as tornadoes, hailstorms, and storms with strong wind and rain, can cause extensive damage to roofs and other portions of your home as well.
To recognize some of the signs of storm related damage to your roofing system, check out our roof damage inspection list below. If, you still have questions after reading our resource guide on recognizing some of the signs of roof damages , reach out to us at 817-576-8797.
Different types of roof storm damage.
If winds below 50 mph can cause damage to your roofing system such as torn and blown off shingles. Imagine the amount of damage
that is possible with winds 70 mph or higher. When shingles are torn or blown off of the roof, especially is large amounts, it could
potentially expose the underlayment, roof deck, and waterproofing material to the elements making your roof more susceptible to leaking and other major issues.
Hailstorms are usually brief, but the damage to your roofing system can be substantial and long-lasting. Hailstones can cause dents to appear on shingles. Most often, the hailstones dislodge the shingles granules causing the shingle mat to be exposed. Often times, when the hail is larger, it can cause the shingle mat to break ultimately giving water a direct pathway onto your roof
deck. You will also find hail damage to items such as gutters, windows, metal vents, fences and items on patios and driveways such as potted plants and vehicles.
If a roof lacks sufficient drainage, water can quickly become an issue, especially after a heavy rainfall. Additionally, clogged gutters can cause water to back up underneath your shingles, allowing moisture to potentially permeate the underlayment or roof deck.
Often times. with severe storms, debris such as tiny branches and bigger tree limbs may end up on top of your roofing system. The presence of obstacles on your roof can cause water not to properly drain and can actually cause physical damage to the shingle, underlayment and decking itself.
Observe the attic and ceilings for leaks and water stains. While the outside of your home’s roof may look unscathed, wind and hail can
cause unnoticed leaks that might lead to worse problems in the future. Inspect your ceilings, light fixtures, and attic for water leaks and spots. Utilize a flashlight to see in the dark.
