Your home's roof and walls take the brunt of storms, which can sometimes cause lasting negative effects. Moderate damage can often be repaired by an experienced roofing company, provided that the integrity of your entire roofing structure remains uncompromised. In the event of a truly severe storm, you may need to have your home re-roofed. Sometimes, the damage from weather is not immediately obvious, causing more problems in the long run.
A severe thunderstorm can include high winds, heavy rain, and hail and even bring the risk of tornadoes. Even without a tornado, a severe storm can damage your roof to the extent that it needs to be replaced or at least extensively repaired. Heavy winds alone can rip shingles from roofs and deposit debris that weighs your roof down. In a worst case scenario, a severe storm can knock over trees, potentially causing damage to your home.
Rain causes its own form of damage, especially over time. For example, frequent, heavy rain can exacerbate existing leaks. You may find yourself with a slow leak that goes unnoticed for months on end, which can compromise the structural integrity of your entire roof.
Finally, hail can damage shingles, tiles, and other areas of your roofing. In fact, severe hailstorms can penetrate your roof and cause damage in your attic. After any severe storm, it is important that you have a qualified roofer inspect your roof thoroughly for signs of storm damage.
