While no one likes summer storms that come through central Virginia, many times they come and go and leave no lasting damage. Sometimes, however, homeowners aren’t so lucky. Sometimes storm damage is immediately visible from the ground, but sometimes, it takes a more careful eye. Here are the top 3 ways that bad weather affects your roof, and what you can do about it:
Wind is an underrated force that can cause severe damage to a roof, even if the rain doesn’t appear to be that heavy. Wind has the potential to rip shingles off of your roof, as well as the insulation and adhesive materials that are found below them. If left untreated, these spots can quickly lead to leaks and water damage in the surrounding areas. Wind is just one of the ways that bad weather affects your roof.
Hail is the second common way bad weather affects your roof. During summer storms, hail is common, and has the potential to severely dent your shingles, which leads to cracks and chips. When left alone, these cracks will expand, spread and invite water damage and leaks.
Another side effect of bad weather is debris. Whether it’s a heavy windstorm, or the aftermath of a tornado, debris has the potential to wreak havoc on your roof. Sometimes wind can be powerful enough to bring branches or powerlines down on your roof.
