Signs of Storm Damages
In order to get repairs done as soon as possible, it’s important to get familiar and notice the signs of storm damages that may be inflicted on your property. Certain materials will react differently than others with certain storm conditions, the age of your roof may also play a significant part in being susceptible to damages. Essentially, the older your roof the more likelihood of damages. Shingles in particular that were already cracked or peeling will be at a major risk of being lost once wind speeds exceed 60 miles per hour. That’s why it’s important to get minor repairs conducted with your roof as storms will only aggravate the issues. Other materials, like clay, may also break or crack when hit with large hail with high wind speeds. When hail does come down, even your gutters can be influenced negatively as seen with granules accumulating and causing clogs with harsh storms. Certain storm conditions may even cause a leak to form in cases like these it may be hard to trace the origin of the puncture without the help of an expert eye.
