Remember, climbing up onto your roof after a storm can be dangerous. If it’s wet, slippery or damaged, you could be at risk of falling. It’s best to stay on the ground and get a professional to safely inspect your roof.
Here’s some ways a storm can cause damage to your roof:
Hail can cause damage to your roof. It can break off shingles or tiles and make holes in your roof. Larger hail will cause more severe damage to your roof, like cracks and leaks.
How long the hail falls for also makes a significant difference. A short burst of hail will do some damage, but a sustained hailstorm can cause serious damage.
If your roof has been through a severe hailstorm, talk to Roo Roofing to get it repaired or replaced.
Strong winds can also damage your roof. It can blow off shingles or tiles, leading to holes and leaks in your roof. Winds can also carry debris that can cause damage to your roof.
In severe storms or a cyclone, the winds can blow off an entire roof. This is due to the changing air pressure lifting off your roof.
Heavy rains can cause unwanted moisture to seep into your house. Even a small leak can cause significant damage if left unchecked. Water damage in your roof can lead to mould, mildew, moss, and pests like ants or termites.
It can also cause your roofing materials to rot or decay, causing issues with your roof’s structural integrity.
