Possible Damage A Storm Could Cause To Your Roof

Brisbane’s weather can get pretty wild during storm season, as we have seen in the last few weeks with the recent flooding.  

Storms, heavy rain and disasters like floods can take a toll on your roof. Once the skies clear, it’s a good idea to take a look at your roof and inspect for any damage. 

To check your roof for storm damage, follow these steps:

  • Look for signs of visible damage from the ground
  • Check inside your home for leaks
  • Check for hail damage

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 Damage

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.

Wind Damage

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. 

Rain Damage

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.
