Storm Damaged Roofs and Why They Need Repairing ASAP

When a storm passes by, your home’s roofing usually takes the brunt of the elemental damage. The risk here isn’t how extensive the actual storm damage is, but how subtle it can be. The damage doesn’t look too extensive, and you may be tempted to ignore it, but a storm damaged roof needs repairing as soon as possible. 3JM Exteriors, Inc explains further.

Identifying Storm Damage

Storm damage can be deceptive and it may be difficult to tell if your roof has experienced any. There are, however, some tell-tale signs. Instead of checking the roof from the outside, have a look at the ceiling or attic space. If there’s water stains or bubbling plaster, then your roof has experienced storm damage. On the outside, missing or damaged shingles are obvious signs that there’s some form of storm damage on your roof.

Why Your Roof Needs Immediate Repairing

The warning signs and symptoms of storm damage may seem benign, but they can become big and expensive problems in the future if left unattended. The biggest risk is the cost of the repair. Small leaks and missing shingles are an acceptable cost, but the extent of the repair work is often aggravated due to storm damage. Existing leaks that are exposed to storm damage, for example, have a tendency to grow larger and more rapidly.

We recommend you have us do some in-depth roof inspection if you’re not sure if your home has experienced storm damage. Our team will talk to you about the extent of the damage, the possible risks, and what we can do to prevent more costly problems from happening.

A Storm Damaged Roof Isn’t Attractive

Finally, a storm-damaged roof isn’t pretty to look at. In fact, it actually lowers your home’s frontage and curb appeal. If you don’t want to spend on costly roof upkeep, we advise having even the tiniest manifestations of storm damage addressed as soon as possible.
