Our roofs take a lot of punishment. It bears the brunt of all kinds of harsh weather, pets, animals, and surrounding trees. All of these thighs can do quite a bit of damage to our roofs. We will discuss what you should need to do with storm damaged roof.

What is a Storm Damaged Roof?

Day-to-day weather will start to damage your roof. The hot sun, rain, and wind all take a toll on the roof. But storms are much more damaging.

Wind:

Strong winds can cause a lot of damage to your roof. Tiles and shingles can be loosened or even blown off. It can make your eaves and pipes lose, and the wind can also drop all kinds of debris on the roof which can cause damage.

If the wind is accompanied by rain or hail, then you risk water and moisture damage getting in. Once the shingles get ripped up, there can be holes that allow the moisture to seep in.

Hail:

Hail storms are often very brief, but cause a lot of damage during that time. Hailstones make dents and holes, cause shingles to become loose or knocked off, and once melted, can seep into the damaged areas they left.

If these damages are not checked out right away, they can make the small problems much worse. If they are left unchecked, you can experience leaks, pests, and rotting material.

Rain:

Rain doesn’t need to be heavy to cause a lot of damage. Moisture is the most common problem for your roof. Even if the rain itself doesn’t cause the damage, it seeps into other areas of your roof where there are holes or cracks.

Mold, mildew, rot, plus leaks, and structural damage can all be caused by heavy rain. Leaks are not always noticed right away and can do untold damage before they are.

What is the Total Cost of the Restoration?

If you catch the damages before they become too much of a problem, the cost will be much less. If you have to have your entire roof repaired or replaced, then it will be much more.

Expect to pay a few hundred dollars for simple repairs. Small repairs can come in under $500, larger ones may run you a few thousand. Roof repair is not a DIY project, so always consult the experts.

Duration of the Restoration

For a few simple repairs, it can be done in a day. Full roof restoration may take a few weeks. It will depend on the weather, size of the roof, materials needed, and how badly the damage is.

Quality of Work with Warranty
