Roofs are commonly the most damaged part of your home during a storm. Hurricane season begins June 1 and extends through November 30 and this season, 15 named storms are being predicted to hit landfall, according to The University of Colorado Hurricane Team. Common roof damage during a storm includes: roof lifting, moisture damage, lost shingles and roofing, missing turbines and collapsed end gables.
Roof lifting is occurs when strong winds lift the roof from your home. “If your roof is lifted, the joists that hold the tops of the walls together could go as well,” said Alex Bogdan, Owner of Sunny State Roofing. Building a roof with a steep slope can reduce the amount of lift. You can modify your current roof to stay in place by having a professional install metal hurricane straps.
Moisture damage can be a problem due to heavy rains. Rain gets under your shingles and decks and if gone unchecked, can cause mold and mildew problems which can lead to structural problem and health issues for your family.
With constant winds battering your roof, lost shingles and roofing are expected. Newer roofing systems are designed to withstand high impact winds. If you cannot afford a new roof, make sure your current roof is properly secured.
Roof turbines can easily get blown off during a strong storm, leaving a hole in your roof that can fill with water. With careful planning, you can remove the turbines and replace them with caps before bad weather.
“We hope this information will make for a more knowledgeable consumer and when the time comes, a smart roof system buyer. A new roof system is a big investment. We want to help you get a quality roof system at a fair price from a professional roofing contractor,” said Alex.
