DON'T LET A REPAIR TURN INTO A COSTLY REPLACEMENT
Here in the Midwest, severe weather is a fact of life. From thunderstorms and heavy rains to occasional hail and even tornadoes, we get a little of everything, and that can affect your roof. Quite often storm damage from hail, high winds or heavy rain can be difficult to detect, so it’s important to have your roof assessed by a professional following a bout of severe weather. When the worst occurs, our team at Ram Roofing is ready to provide repair services to ensure storm damage doesn’t spread to other areas of your home.
Hail: Hail is one of the costliest types of adverse weather, and unfortunately, many homeowners are not fully aware of its damage potential. If your home has been in the path of a hail storm, your exterior should be inspected by a professional as soon as possible. If left untreated, roof damage from hail could end up costing you down the road if the damage spreads to other parts of the building. Our team is specifically trained to spot the early signs of roof damage caused by hail, such as broken or missing shingles, damaged flashing, and the like, and then provide you with the best options for repair or replacement of your roof.
Wind: High winds from a storm can cause serious damage to your roof. Strong winds can create stress points on a roof that, over time, can weaken and compromise the structure. While roofs are designed to resist typical wind loads, they can be incrementally damaged over the years by high winds and debris carried by the wind. Worst of all, after the wind dies down, your shingles may lay back in place and appear to be perfectly fine while leaving the roof compromised.
Rain: Heavy rain can wear down shingles and other elements of a roof. The damage left in a storm’s wake can involve lost shingles and moisture penetration in the underlayment. This water damage can penetrate the roof deck and eventually compromise the structural integrity of the home. Excessive moisture may also lead to rot and mold inside your home, which spells trouble both structurally and for the health of your family.
Lightning: While a bolt of lightning can do tremendous damage if it hits your roof, the likelihood of a direct strike is relatively rare. Far more likely is the damage caused by lightning hitting a nearby tree and causing it to fall on your roof.
Debris: Debris refers to any foreign objects that can be carried by high winds and impact your roof, causing damage, such as branches, unsecured objects in the yard, even small stones. The most serious cases involve trees being uprooted and falling onto your roof – a common enough occurrence during a tornado. Any contact between the roof and pieces of debris should be investigated by a professional roofer to ensure there is no damage that could get worse over time.
