Types of Storm Damage
Unfortunately, storms bring various dangerous components to the table. Many different types of storm damage may impact your roof and its ability to keep your home safe and structurally sound. Some of the most common forms of roof storm damage that impact Minnesota/Wisconsin residents include:
Unfortunately, Minnesota/Wisconsin climate means that it is ripe for hail storms. Many people don’t understand the severe consequences that hail can have for their roofs. Even a small amount of hail can cause significant damage to many common roofing materials.
Depending on the type of roofing that is present on your home, hail damage may cause splits or cracks that reduce the protective nature of your roofing. Water may be able to seep through and cause further damage to your home. Also, UV exposure to some of the underlying roofing components may reduce the lifespan of your roofing material.
For these reasons, it’s essential to deal with hail damage to your roof quickly. We’ve worked with countless hail damage victims to find timely and affordable solutions to their hail damage problems.
Severe winds can also create a series of problems for homeowners. If wind rips shingles or roofing components off your home, you may be exposed to further weather problems. It’s not uncommon for wind damage to impact Minnesota/Wisconsin homes. If there has been a recent storm, it’s essential to ensure that your home’s roofing hasn’t experienced wind damage.
Lastly, debris that arises as a result of storms can significantly impact your home’s roofing. Whether it be branches or other debris, impact with your roof can cause severe damage. In fact, there are instances where debris damage may require immediate repair. If a tree or other large object falls onto your roof, you’ll need to speak to a construction specialist immediately to prevent further issues.
Unfortunately, if you experience any of the above forms of damage, the problems don’t stop at your roof. The reason your roof is so important is that it protects other components of your home. Not dealing with a roofing issue may result in a series of other problems that have expansive costs.
For one, roof damage means that your home will be exposed to the weather. This exposure can cause dangerous water intake which can leak throughout your house. Water leaks can build up and create harmful molds and growths that may impact your home. In other instances, you may also find that persistent water exposure warps wood and damages critical components of your home causing permanent structural issues.
Also, roof damage leaves you open to debris entering your home or animals entering your property. As you can imagine, this can create a range of problems and cost serious time and money to fix!
