Before heavy thunderstorms and hurricanes, comes hail. Whether the hail is smaller or bigger, it can cause pockmarks on the roof. These pockmarks can create smaller openings in the roof giving way to the water to seep into the foundation of the roof causing further damage.
Another type of storm damage that can compromise the roof is high winds. High winds can get under the shingles. This can loosen the shingles and the overall integrity of the roof.
Now, you already have hail falling on the roof. But that’s not it! There are other items falling on the roof due to high winds. Such as tree branches breaking due to high winds. These tree branches can fall on the roof and cause detrimental damage to the roof. It can affect the overall integrity of the roof and might need replacement from professional roofing contractors Barrie.
Storm brings with it water. Whether it is hail or water droplets due to heavy downpours, your roof gets exposed to water. If your roof gutters are clogged, the water won’t run off and will accumulate on the roof. Water accumulation on the roof can cause damage to the roof. It can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. It can create water pockets on the roof putting pressure on the ceiling and eventually breaking causing roof leaks.
