Fixing Your Roof After a Storm

When severe weather hits, your roof will be forced to face the stress that Mother Nature can throw at your home. Rain, hail, snow, high winds, and more can all cause potentially serious damage to your roof. If that damage goes unrepaired, your roof can develop issues such as leaks, holes, mildew, or mold that can cause further damage to your home, thus creating major repair costs and even a potentially unsafe home.

When a storm hits and you notice an issue with your roof, it’s important to do what you can to slow the damage immediately, and then schedule a service with our GAF Master Elite® roofers in Colorado Springs as soon as possible.

Rain Damage

Old tiles or worn out materials such as slats or cracked asphalt coverings due to constant exposure to the elements can make your roof susceptible to major damage in the event of rain. A small crack or weak point in your roof can lead to things such as a roof leak, structural damage, mold, mildew, and a number of other potentially dangerous health hazards.

High Winds

While most structures are built to withstand winds well in excess of 100 miles per hour, aging wood or unrepaired damage can all weaken a roof that has not been inspected or repaired in quite some time. This means that in particularly high winds, your roof could be at risk for collapsing under the stress of the amount of air colliding with it on a constant basis. Ensuring your roof structure is in good condition a vital necessity every year in order to ensure your roof is still structurally sound.

Hail Damage

When small chunks of ice start falling from the sky and landing on your head, what’s the first thing you do? Run for cover, right? Well your roof, which you rely on to provide that cover, needs to be able to withstand the continual pounding from hail without allowing further damage to your home. Hail can cause damage such as chips or cracks on slate or tile roofs, and possibly could cause structural damage if your roof is already significantly aged before a hail storm.

Snow Damage

Snow may be the hardest type of weather of them all for your roof. Not only do you have the issue of water running down your roof as it melts, potentially exposing leaks and holes in your roof, but snow adds a lot of weight to your roof as well. If your roof is already dealing with issues of mold or mildew weakening its support structure, you potentially could see part of your roof collapse under the weight. A leaky or improperly insulated roof could also lead to extremely high heating bills in winter as your home struggles to stay warm with snow on the roof.
