The autumn weather often brings heavy rains and storms that can cause damage to your home. You want to deal with the damage that the storms have caused as soon as you can before the problem gets worse. Often, the problems with storm damage to your roof are easy to repair when you catch the issues in time. The following information will help you deal with the roof damage to your home that has been caused by fall storms:
Tree debris damage after fall storms
Trees around your home and near your roof can be good for shade and appearance, but they can also damage roofing and other building materials. The fall storms can make problems with damage to your roof from tree debris worse. Therefore, if you have trees near your roof, you are going to want to inspect your roof for debris damage after severe weather—especially during the autumn months when leaves are falling, and branches may be more vulnerable to damage.
Wind damage after autumn storms
Wind is a weather phenomenon that can cause serious damage to your roof. The problem is often visible when there are missing shingles or areas of roofing that have been completely blown off your home. Sometimes, the issues with wind damage may be more difficult to spot, and you will need to get up on your roof to look for loose and torn shingles that need roof repairs before the damage spreads.
Roof inspections to catch hailstone damage
Hailstorms can cause some of the most serious damage to the roof of your home after severe weather passes. This is because the hailstones often leave pits and damage on the surface of shingles that are difficult to spot when you initially check for damage outside. Therefore, if there have been storms with hail recently, you will want to have your roof inspected for hailstone damage to the surface of shingles.
Shingle wear and leaks that surface after storms
The wear of shingles can be accelerated by the fall weather. This happens with weather phenomena like hailstorms and downpours that cause the aggregate granules to wear off the surface of the shingles. This accelerated shingle wear can cause problems with leaks to develop and get worse if it is not repaired quickly. Therefore, when inspecting your roof after autumn storms, you are going to want to look for signs of leaks and wear of the shingles that can turn into serious problems.
The fall storm damage can turn into a serious problem and costly repairs if you let it go and forget about it over the winter months. Call a roof repair service for help with these repairs to fix issues before the cold weather causes problems to get worse.
