Keeping up with repairs is an important part of preventing roof leaks that can wreak havoc on the inside of your home. Most shingle roofs are sturdy and will last for around 20-25 years before they will need to be replaced. Unfortunately, high wind and hail from storms can result in weather damage that will have to be fixed in order to maintain your roof’s integrity.
While it can be difficult to tell when damage has occurred after a heavy storm, a professional can inspect your roof and answer any questions you have about the wear and tear it may have incurred. At Berg Home Improvements, we have the experience to provide a thorough and unbiased inspection of your roof. If you’re in need of repairs, our roofing specialists are the experts to call.
When it comes to sources of damage, severe weather is perhaps one of the biggest threats to your roof. Strong winds can pull shingles loose, and rain can seep into any areas that are already compromised. Your roof is pretty sturdy, so you might not think immediately about hail as a source of damage, but it certainly does happen.
Knowing the signs of hail damage will help you to determine when it’s time to call a professional for repairs. Hail damage on asphalt can be spotted by seemingly random, dark spots scattered across your roof. Damage from hail is not always very noticeable, but the granules that are dislodged from the storm can allow water to seep in, leading to bigger problems later on.
Once hail or other weather has damaged your roof, water can seep in and result in a number of other issues. Moisture inside the attic can lead to mold growth, and may attract pests like cockroaches, rodents, and dust mites. Extensive mold growth in the home poses a potential health hazard to those living in the home. Additionally, if the water is in a place that it can drip onto electrical wires, a short can occur.
If hail damage has struck your home, it’s important to have the roof assessed by a professional. Roofing is not a project to DIY. Not only do professionals understand all of the layers involved in a water-right roof, but they have the training and experience to keep themselves safe while working on top of a building.
Damage to your roof from hail or other weather can lead to much larger problems later if left unattended. However, it takes a professional to safely complete repairs that are thorough and will keep water out of your home.
