How Can Hurricanes and Bad Weather Impact Your Roof?

by Reggie Reed Jr on May 8, 2019

A roof can be one of the most important protective layers throughout your home. As one of the top lines of defense from the sun, and an excellent level of support for a downpour during the wet months, a roof is crucial to protecting your home. Over time however, your roofing materials can start to break down. As your roof continues to face natural forces, you may start to see the roofing structures throughout your home degrade and require regular maintenance.

Here are some of the top ways that hurricanes and other forms of bad weather can work against your roofing materials:

Heat:

Extreme heat with your roof can often lead to ongoing aging which can damage the interior and exterior of your roofing. Being faced with constancy will only lead to your roof elements starting to degrade over time. If your home is located in an area where your roof will get prolonged exposure to the sun, you need to consider doing maintenance far more often with your roofing systems. The structural ventilation in your home can affect the overall temperature throughout your home and if you happen to start experiencing major temperature shifts, there's a good chance that your roofing products could be affected.

Strong winds:

If you have some of the roofing tiles on your roof exposed, they can be vulnerable to a wide range of dangers including water damage. The water can damage the seals in your roof and often lead to lose flashing that can be a cause for concern in the future. Homes that have close access to trees will often experience more damage as some of the branches from the trees can impact the roofing systems to create even greater damage. Severe winds can wreak havoc on your gutter systems and drainage which can lead to water pooling and other causes for concern. It's always important to check your roof after a major windstorm for the signs of missing tiles or contact a roofing company.

Heavy rain:

After heavy rain from a major storm, your roof to be open to a number of vulnerabilities. There could be missing tiles, Lou seals and even cracked shingles along the walls. After a heavy downpour you need to make sure that you can check in on your roof. Scheduling regular inspections can make sure that you can spot the signs of damage and get it repaired quickly. If there are storms moving through the area, you will definitely want to get repairs done before the next major storm.
