How Can Storms Damage Your Roof?
The most dangerous aspect of a storm is how it’s a combination of several damaging things. These elements are what cause destruction to your roof.
- Rain: Heavy rain can leak moisture into your shingles and the underlying support structure. This causes decay and structural damage. In some cases, the added moisture can encourage mold growth.
- Snow: It may look light, but snow can pile up on your roof and put pressure on the structure. And as it melts, it creates the same issues as rain.
- Hail: Hail is among the most destructive of them all, capable of puncturing, cracking, and destabilizing your shingles. Plus, hail can strip away the protective granules of shingles, which can redirect water flow to the wrong places.
- Wind: The strong winds during a storm can rip away individual shingles or even blow away whole sections of the roof.
- Ice/Frost: During the colder months, frost can occur after a storm. It can block water from draining down the gutters and will add to the weight of snow on your roof.
