Types of Storm Damage
While we immediately think that rain and hail are the most common types of storm damage, wind damage, tornado damage and damage from debris are also leading causes. When your roof becomes damaged, Elite Roofing of Georgia understands it is important to quickly assess the damage and provide a roof repair or roof replacement as soon as possible.
Tornadoes have the capability of generating high force winds over 200 miles per hour. With winds like that your roof is at high risk of losing shingles, or even whole sections of the roof. Not only do you need to be concerned with the wind damage but flying debris such as branches can puncture your roof creating holes where water can damage the inside of your home.
After ensuring your family is safe, it is important to assess the damage to your home from the tornado. Looking for loose or missing shingles is a great place to start. If you suspect you have an issue, give us a call and one of our experts can assess if there is damage to your roof.
Most severe storms are accompanied by high winds that sometimes reach speeds of 60+ Miles per hour. With high-speed winds like that your shingled roof is at risk, even if it is in like-new condition. Wind, like tornadoes, can also blow debris onto your roof. This can cause shingles to come loose or tear off creating a gap where water can leak into your home.
Inspect your roof for damage after the storm to ensure there is no damage to your roofing shingles. Issues left unfixed will cause much greater damage to your home in the long run. When looking at the roof, also look for shingles on the ground as well. This may be a more obvious sign of a bigger issue.
Our team of experts is prepared to assess and secure your roof so no further damage to your home occurs.
The most common type of storm damage that we see in the area is damage from flying debris impacting the surface of the roof. Typically, this will either puncture your roof or tear loose shingles. When this occurs during a storm the accompanying rain can cause significant damage to the interior of your home.
If your roof is punctured, you typically will know quickly because rain will start leaking in almost immediately. After this happens, other damage to your home including damage to your personal belongings, drywall, paint, and insulations most likely will occur. You may also develop mold issues if not discovered and corrected immediately.
While not always obvious, damage to your roof can occur from standing water caused by debris build-up. After severe storms, branches and other debris may build up on your roof. When water cannot properly run off your roof it will start to be penetrated and eventually cause damage to your roof.
Damage from the debris can include leaks but usually is much more serious than that. The biggest threat with standing water on your roof Is penetration into the structure of your roof causing the sheeting and rafters to weaken and rot. Repairing the structure of your roof from this type of damage can be very costly.
If you suspect your roof has received structural damage due to standing water call Elite Roofing of Georgia today so we can properly inspect and repair your roof or replace your roof.
