How Bad Weather Impacts Your Roof

May 18, 2021 | Blog

When owning a home, one of the first things you can do to ensure that you maintain a healthy infrastructure is by taking good care of your roof. It’s the part of your home that puts shelter over your head, so any damage could potentially affect the wellbeing of your home. While the asphalt shingles on your roof are designed to withstand as many factors as possible, there is still room for damage. Knowing how to spot that damage and address it correctly is important. That’s where we come in.

Hail Damage

Hail storms aren’t typically the most common type of weather that might roll through your town, but it can be one of the most damaging. Hail can cause cracks in ceramic or metal roofing tiles and even break or loosen asphalt shingles. Depending on the damage, you should consider repairing or replacing your roof. Check out our blog post on whether you should repair or replace your roof after a hailstorm for more information.

Wind Damage

Roofs are naturally designed to withstand an excessive amount of wind. Typically, most roofs can handle winds that can get up to 90 mph, and in places where hurricanes are more common, they can handle even greater amounts. When the wind gets excessive, it possesses the ability to loosen and tear off shingles from your roof. There is also the potential for falling objects such as downed powerlines and tree branches.

Water Damage

One good way to tell if you have water damage on your roof is if you start to see water spots on your ceiling. If water was able to get through your roof and soak its way into your ceiling, it is something you want to address as soon as you can. Neglecting to repair your water-damaged roof could result in the formation of mold that could cause even greater problems in the long run.

Ice Damage

If you’re located in an area where ice can stand on your roof for an extended period, that could cause another form of potential roof damage. Things like ice dams, freezing cracks, and condensation are all common cold-weather roofing issues that you should be aware of. Ice dams create a wall of ice along the edges of your roof that prevent water from safely draining off your roof.

If you have pre-existing cracks on your roof, the water that gets into those cracks could freeze, causing the water to expand and makes the cracks worse. When the warm air from the inside of your home is mixed with the cold air outside, it allows moisture to sink into your roof instead of creating a pool on top of it.
