Roofs stand up against a variety of weather elements on a daily basis. Apart from that, they should also be able to withstand different types of debris on various occasions. Hail, trees and building components are usually the most damaging to roofs. Here’s how different types of debris can affect or damage your roof.
The extent of damage caused by hail depends on the size of hailstones and the speed at which they hit the roof. And, while heavy hail may not cause your shingles to be blown off, cracks could form on the shingles and weaken the material. If these are not detected and fixed early, they can cause your roof to wear out quickly. Watch out for punctures in the lining underneath your shingles, too. Since these are not easily recognizable right after the storm, it’s best to call a roofer for a post-storm roof inspection.
If trees are rooted near your home, they could pose serious risk of damage during strong wind or storm events. Their branches could get torn away or flung onto your roof depending on the intensity of the wind. Furthermore, they could puncture the protective membrane of your roof or cause the shingles to be torn off. In this case, it’s crucial to perform roof repairs as soon as it’s safe to do so.
Some building components may find their way onto your roof in the event of high winds or extreme weather. There’s really not much you can do to prevent roof damage caused by flying objects, but it is important to contact a roofing company after the storm so that the team can check your roof and carry out the necessary repairs ASAP.
