Here are some things to look out for:
Continued high winds can cause tiles and shingles to blow of your roof. If this occurs, it can lead to leaks and other exterior and interior damage with your home. The good news is, missing tiles or shingles are usually easy to see. However, there are other damages that can occur that are not so easy to identify such as the adhesive seal that provides a water-shedding surface is broken. If you have had a storm with high winds, the best action you can take to maintain your roof is to inspect it — our roofing experts can help with this.
RoofMasters Tip: All manufacturers publish a wind warranty on their shingles; therefore before replacing the shingles immediately (if damaged), review the manufacturer’s wind coverage. RoofMasters can help you file an insurance claim.
Another common form of storm damage comes from hail. This potentially dangerous weather can wreak havoc on your roof by bruising shingles leaving an indentation, which could eventually lead to a crack. These damages are very hard to see and RoofMasters recommends having a roofing expert inspect the roof in the case of a heavy hailstorm.
If it is deemed that the damage on your roof was created by the storm then you will have to complete an insurance claim — RoofMasters helps you with this step to ensure you receive the money you deserve to fix and preserve your roof. RoofMasters is an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor member and someone your can trust.
During more sever storms tree branches or other failing debris can land on your roof. This debris can lead to missing shingles, cracked shingles, and broken drainpipes. As always, it is important to take the appropriate steps in keeping your roof in excellent condition.
