Homeowners and local roofing contractors know just how much damage on a roof a thunderstorm can cause. Thunderstorms carry more than just thunder and lightning. These weather conditions can bring high amounts of rain, strong winds, hailstones and, in worst-case scenarios, tornadoes. There’s no amount of preparation to salvage your roof and your home under extreme circumstances, but this happens rarely. Most of the time, proper care and maintenance are enough to ensure your roof can weather the storm.
Let our roofing specialists at Carney Roofing Company offer you a few useful tips about how to get your roof ready to face some inclement weather.
Your roof needs periodic maintenance checks and inspection in order to remain in great shape. The frequency depends on what type of roofing material you have but our experts recommend having a professional come out and perform a check-up at least once a year. It’s also best to call a roof maintenance company after every severe storm to see if your roof suffered any damage. This is most often done during thunderstorm season, from March to October.
Hail and Wind Damage
Small hailstones can hit your home like bullets, breaking windows, denting cars and damaging many other parts of your home. Perhaps the worst-hit of them all is your roof. Hail damage in asphalt shingles can be hard to spot but the cracks they cause can be enough to make your roof leak. Wind-damaged roofing is equally difficult to assess. Ask a professional for a full inspection after you’ve experienced some severe hail and windstorms.
