Storm Damage Roof Replacement in Waukesha

Waukesha is no stranger to storms, hail, and other similar occurrences. The severe weather in the city mainly affects commercial and residential buildings — with the roofs absorbing most of the damage. Storm damage caused by these extreme weather disturbances can pose a safety hazard to property owners and neighbors. Naturally, the damaged roofs will need repair or replacement. It is vital to act as quickly as possible to prevent the damage from worsening and affecting other areas of the house or building.

When a roof is damaged, it is crucial to have it inspected by professionals. We do not advise doing this on your own since most people do not have the knowledge and tools necessary to accurately evaluate the extent of the damage and assess the appropriate action.

We at Bulldog Builders have been in the roof replacement industry for almost a decade. Our team of roof replacement professionals has been providing their expertise to the people of Waukesha since 2013. Bulldog Builders also understands that roof replacement can be an unexpected household expense. With a wealth of experience in insurance claims and financing options available, you can count on us to assist you in this process too.

Parts of the Roof Affected by Storm Damage

Storms are one of the more frequent reasons for roof replacement. Here are the roof parts that get hit with the most damage during storms.


When strong winds, rain, or hail constantly hits a property, the overlapping elements of the roof covering — the shingles — will sustain damage. Once the shingles are damaged or go missing, leaks can occur. Damaged shingles can also let drafts into the building.


Runoff water, strong winds, and rain can be factors that contribute to damaging your gutters. Gutters can break, loosen from their place, and bend due to storms and other harsh weather conditions, especially if not maintained regularly. A roof with a damaged gutter can cause water damage to leak inside and may eventually damage the ceiling. Additionally, if leaves and debris build up in your gutters and are not cleaned out before heavy rain, the weight of the debris and water may cause the gutters to break.

Roof Flashing

Roof flashing is used to waterproof the surrounding perimeter of a roof. This process prevents water from flowing to the joints and seams. When roof flashing is damaged, water can go straight to the rifts and openings in a roof. Damage to the roof flashing can result in water leakage inside the house.

Roof Decking

Heavy storms can also damage roof decking. When the shingles are damaged, the roof decking is the next layer to be exposed. The shingles on top can loosen if it suffers considerable damage, leading to leakage.

Best Course of Action for a Damaged Roof

It can be hard to tell what kind of condition your roof is in after a storm hits. There is no way to know if there has been any damage unless it is checked.. The best way to learn if the roof is still in optimal condition is to have it inspected by a professional. A professional roof inspector can assess the damage. If there is any, they can often inform you of the best course of action for the situation.

If the roof inspection confirms that your roof is damaged, you can either have it repaired or replaced. Knowing which option is better depends on the extent of the damage and the roof inspector’s professional advice.

Roof Repair

A repair could be an option if the roof suffered only minor damages. However, there are times when it is more practical and cost-effective to have the roof replaced.

Roof Replacement

Storms can cause various issues for your roof, like a broken gutter, missing shingles, and exposed roof decking, among other things. You must address the problem as soon as possible to prevent the damage from worsening. A roof replacement may be the most ideal and necessary solution in cases where the damage is severe.
